    Great site with all the facilities, pools, children's play area, bar, free wifi. Everything kept to an immaculate standard with friendly attentive staff.
    Great location only a couple of hundred yards from the wonderful Benodet beach.
    Visited the site as my daughter and family were there for the summer which is ideal for young children, but also quiet and friendly which suits us grandparents.
    Will certainly be there next year!

Directions


Local attractions

Spas and sands are the main order of leisurely business around seasidey Benodet: the town's known as a thalassotherapy centre and four golden sandy beaches are within a kilometre of Camping du Poulquer. As well as the beaches here, get along to Plage des Dames and the Plage des Sables Blancs for serene sunbathing, or take a ferry to the nearby Glénan Islands.

Among the many other Finistère and Brittany options easily reached from Benodet is Concarneau, the third biggest fishing port in France which has an Old Town on a rocky island just off the coast, a fishing museum and a fine indoor market selling fish (mais oui), fruit, veg and other local produce.

Another must is Quimper, the old Brittany town where you'll still see women in traditional Breton dress (and head coverings), among the cobbled streets and half-timbered buildings.

You could also take a look at the port town of Pont-l'Abbé, with the remains of its fourteenth-century castle and the Bigouden Museum showcasing traditional dress and headpieces, or Locranon, one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France.

For outdoorsy antics, hike along the 12-kilometre circular trail through the forest of Bois de Névet, looking out for deer, foxes, badgers and buzzards along the way.
