Alan Rogers Review

This large, well maintained campsite is well laid out on the shores of Lac de Léon and offers 240 touring pitches and 557 mobile homes for rent. The pitches range from simple ones to those with water and a drain and there are eight with private, well designed, modern sanitary facilities. In low season it is a quiet site and those pitches beside the lake offer a wonderful backdrop to relaxing pastimes. During the main season it is a lively place for children of all ages. A pool complex offers a standard pool for swimming, a pool for children with a water canon and fountains, plenty of sunbeds and a heated indoor pool.

Swimming is also permitted in the lake alongside the many water-based activities. A fitness and beauty spa offers a wide range of treatments. This extensive but natural site edges a nature reserve and stretches along the Lac de Léon, a conservation area, for 1 km. on a narrow frontage. This makes it particularly suitable for those who want to practise watersports such as sailing and windsurfing, there is also a water playground with inflatable games. An overall charge is made for some but not all of the leisure activities.
