La Foret-Hot Southern Brittany

Hot Southern Brittany

A small, intimate campsite with direct access to a delightful, safe, sandy beach†. Ideal for families with young children..

Direct access to a delightful, safe sandy beach†

It’s a balmy hot, Brittany day, the sun’s on my back as I look out into the tranquil waters of Concarneau Bay with the fine sand between my toes and the calm water lapping over my feet. I decide it’s time to head back for lunch. I turn and face the glorious Kerlevan Plage with its famous white sand, one of the finest beaches in Brittany. I walk along and step straight onto our campsite with its magnificent swimming pool complex, the best in the area with its 5 water chutes and Jacuzzi. Maybe that’s where I’ll spend the afternoon. I cross a small road and walk up a slight gradient and there is my spacious deluxe mobile home with its inviting decking. The Carisma homes are in a quiet cul-de-sac surrounded on 3 sides by open fields, great for the children and very safe. I can actually see the bay from my mobile home.

Ideal for family holidays

There is so much to do here, it’s the centre of historic Brittany. Yesterday we visited the magnificent wall fort of Concarneau with its restaurants and boutiques and found a great little bistro, it even had its own draw bridge complete with bagpiper. It was only 5 minutes by car. Tomorrow evening we are going to visit the ancient capital of Brittany, Quimper- just a few minutes further. The children are so happy here, there is everything for them; waterslides, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing.
I can now relax on my patio decking and enjoy fresh langoustines and a glass of wine. Carisma tell us that they have been here for over 30 years, working together with 3 generations of the Boustoler family who run the campsite. All those years ago they promised Carisma exclusivity and that still is the case now, just Carisma and the campsite’s own French families. It makes this small, friendly campsite an absolute gem.

Strict planning regulations have prevented new campsites from being built in this historic area. There are, however, a few very good ones a little way back from the beach. But careful research will tell you that that’s where the British tour operators all masse, that may be what you are looking for, but if you are looking for something a little more unique and exclusive, and on the beach, you may look no further.
