Alan Rogers Review
Camping La Pointe is a small, rural family run site, set in a valley alongside a small stream, on the outskirts of Châteaulin. There are 60 grassy pitches, most with elecric hook up (10 A). There is a lovely walk along the banks of the Nantes Brest canal into the town of Chateualin where you will find bars, restaurants, shops and all the usual amenies of a small town. A variety of beautiful beaces are a short drive of about 20 minutes. The area is ideal for walking, cycling, fishing, kayaking etc or you can just relax on the peaceful site. There is a small kitchen garden, chicken run and polytunnel where campers can buy fresh produce in season, and a regular delivery of fresh bread and croissants.
A pathway, just opposite the site entrance, gives direct access to the river Aulne where fishing is popular (permit required), and a twice hourly train service provides easy access into the cathedral city of Quimper.
The sanitary block is equipped with showers, private washing cubicles and a baby washroom, token operated washing machine and dryer. There is an information room with local tourist leaflets, a book exchange and 2 fridge freezers for the use of campers. A large room above the block can be used for table tennis or just sitting and relaxing. There is a small fenced off play area for young children. There is bicycle hire on site and kayaks etc can be hired in nearby Chateaulin. In Season there is a crepe night every Thursday. A small shop sells essential supplies as well as fresh garden produce in season and eggs from the sites free range chickens.
