Camping holidays in Brittany
Brittany is the perfect region for a fabulous holiday. And there are plenty of reasons why. First of all, the region boasts some magnificent coastlines. The different coasts complement one another, because Brittany is bordered by the English Channel to the north, the Celtic Sea to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. So, as well as basking in the water park at one of our campsites, you can also splash around in the sea!
But there’s much, much more to a holiday in Brittany than the water! Visitors certainly shouldn’t neglect the region’s inland areas, which are also teeming with tourist attractions. The Breton cultural identity and its folklore, including its mythological aspects, were largely forged in the Breton countryside.
Finally, Brittany is a region that fully embraces life. In every sense of the word. You’ll very quickly become aware of this with the many culinary specialities, the array of festivals and events held here, and the convivial atmosphere that is so characteristic of the squares in Brittany’s towns and villages.
