Brittany Beckons - Great Location for your Camping Holiday  25/03/2015

Getting to Brittany

Lengthy journeys can test everyone’s patience, so being able to easily reach your destination is one of the first appealing factors of Brittany holidays. With a choice of routes across the channel, the most popular way to travel is by ferry. This allows you to bring the car, stop as many times as you wish on route and not have the challenge of luggage restrictions. French roads are typically quieter than those in the UK, making for preferable driving conditions. Across the majority of France you have the option to drive on the toll roads, which offer the most direct route at a price. Alternatively you can use the standard roads, which are slower, but take you through French towns, which builds up the excitement of your holiday. Located in Southern Brittany, La Foret //  is a small and authentic campsite on a scenic bay, just 85 miles from Roscoff or a four hour drive from Caen.  The campsite owners take great pride in ensuring that all the facilities are well maintained and the site is kept clean. There is a wonderful swimming pool on site and the location is ideal for those who are keen to explore the region.

Brittany Beaches

If you enjoy the rugged beauty, hidden coves and sandy beaches of Cornwall, you’ll love Brittany. The difference is that Brittany boasts a far larger coastline. La Foret in southern Brittany makes for an ideal beach holiday, perfect for sandcastle enthusiasts and rock pool explorers. A little out to sea are some wild and wonderful islands. A short drive from La Foret will take you to the departure point of boat trips out to Ile d’Ouessant, Ile d’Molene and Belle Ile. These are inhabited islands, but nature still rules and you may be fortunate enough to spot some local wildlife. The islands offer the ultimate retreat for peace, tranquillity and an opportunity to appreciate natural wonders. Rolling onto Brittany’s beaches is the Atlantic Ocean. These seas have provided many Breton’s with a livelihood and you can enjoy the taste of freshly caught fish and seafood in many of Brittany’s restaurants. Many tourists are attracted by the Atlantic waves, which provide a natural playground for water sport enthusiasts. Whether you are a beginner or improver, there are surf schools along the coast that can help you build your confidence and skills in the water.

Brittany Holidays

Brittany holidays are a fantastic option if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in the great outdoors, where you can enjoy simple pleasures, impressive beaches, fresh air and fresh food. A holiday at La Foret will offer you a genuine taste of France without the need to clock up the air miles and will leave you with many happy memories.
