Ty Provost is a small, simple campsite in a village outside the historic riverside town of Châteaulin in Finistère, near the western tip of Brittany. There are 40 large pitches on level ground, some occupied by modern wooden chalets. Many are separated by hedges and 6/10A electricity connections are provided on 20 pitches. Reception provides tourist information and a few basic food supplies. Châteaulin has shops, bars and restaurants while the ancient town of Quimper offers a wider choice by day and by night. M. Nicolas is a keen walker and is able to supply notes on detailed walking and cycling routes in the area. He will also lead walks himself.
The River Aulne, which flows through Châteaulin, forms part of the Nantes-Brest Canal and has an unusual underwater Aquatic Observatory. The town has a number of churches including la Chapelle Notre-Dame. The fishing port of Douarnenez, the beaches of the Crozon Peninsula and the rocky coastline leading to the Pointe du Raz are all within easy reach, whilst inland are the impressive heights of the Monts d’Arrée, and the Montagnes Noires.
