Alan Rogers Review

A family managed site, Camping le Deffay is a refreshing departure from the usual formula in that it is not over organised or supervised and has no tour operator units. The 170 good sized, fairly level pitches (103 for touring) have pleasant views and are either on open grass, on shallow terraces divided by hedges or informally arranged in a central, slightly sloping wooded area. All have 10A electricity. The bar, restaurant and covered pool are located within the old courtyard area of the smaller château that dates from before 1400. A significant attraction of the site is the large, unfenced lake which is well stocked for fishermen and even has free pedalos for children.

The landscape is wonderfully natural and the site blends well with the rural environment of the estate, lake and farmland which surround it. Alpine-style chalets overlook the lake and fit in well with the environment and the larger château (built in 1880 and now offering B&B) stands slightly away from the camping area but provides a wonderful backdrop for an evening stroll. The site is close to the Brière Regional Park, the Guérande Peninsula and La Baule and is just 20 minutes’ drive from the nearest beach.


The main toilet block is well maintained, if a little dated, and is well equipped including washbasins in cabins, provision for disabled visitors and a baby bathroom. Laundry facilities. Shop. Bar and small restaurant with takeaway. Heated swimming pool with sliding cover and paddling pool (all season). Play area. TV. Entertainment in season including miniclub. Fishing and pedaloes on the lake. Torches useful. WiFi throughout (charged).
