Alan Rogers Review
Fort Espagnol can be found close to the village of Crac’h, with easy access to the Morbihan Gulf. 70 touring pitches vary in size and are in a wooded setting, most have electrical connections (10A). A number of mobile homes and chalets are available to rent, as well as safari style tents. There is an impressive lagoon-style swimming pool complex, featuring a number of slides and other water features. There is also a heated, indoor pool. Other amenities include a small shop and snack bar. During July and August, various activities are organised, including dances, karaoke and numerous sports competitions. A free shuttle bus to the beach is available daily.
The curious origin of the campsite’s name relates to the ruins of a 16th-century fort built by Spanish sailors who arrived to assist the besieged Duc de Mercoeur. The fashionable sailing centre of La Trinité-sur-Mer is close at hand and is a pleasant place for a stroll, hosting many excellent seafood restaurants. Alternatively, the unique prehistoric standing stones (alignments) at Carnac richly merit a visit.
