General

  • A vibrant family resort with beach access
  • Superb 250m² pool complex including water slides, spa and Jacuzzi
  • 'Sunny Club' kids' club and plenty of evening entertainment

With a small beach just outside the entrance and the bustling resort of Bénodet a pleasant, coastal walk away, Camping L'Escale Saint-Gilles offers you the best of both worlds.

This family-run park has great facilities including a superb 250m² pool complex with water slides, spa, Jacuzzi, and indoor pool. There's also an impressive health and beauty centre, which is ideal if you fancy a bit of pampering and that's in addition to our gym and facilities for playing tennis, table tennis, volleyball and basketball.

In July and August we run the 'Sunny Club' kids' club on weekday mornings and a variety of evening entertainment such as family discos, karaoke evenings, quiz nights, cabaret and magic shows in La Grande Voile bar which is a great place to relax.

For evening dining, Le Safran restaurant has an outdoor terrace facing the water park and indoor seating where guests can taste traditional dishes based on local fresh ingredients. We also have a snack bar offering a wide choices of takeaway foods from traditional snacks (ice creams, sandwiches, pizzas, chips, sausages, cold drinks) to local cuisine (mussels, couscous, paella, grilled meat).

The campsite offers all the practical amenities you'll need, such as our on-site shop selling essential groceries, local produce and souvenirs. Washing and drying machines are available by the main shower block and guests can just ask our helpful reception staff for local tourist site ideas and tips.

From the manager...

Dear customer,
Many thanks for taking the time to share your comments on Pitchup further to your stay with us in Bénodet! We were glad to read you enjoyed your holidays in L'Escale St-Gilles and took good note of your various remarks. Thus, we are well aware of the sun loungers issue and are currently working on procedures and staff training to solve that problem! We have also added, over the winter, some artificial grass around the pool to increase space. Then, as far as the rubbish is concerned we have made the decision to put the recycling on the main car park to avoid waste trucks on site.
Again thank you for taking time to comment on our Pitchup feedback page!
Best regards,

The Sunêlia l'Escale St-Gilles Team

Local attractions

There is a popular tourist train to collect you from the park and take you to the nearby town and beach.

With its picturesque streets of medieval, half-timbered Breton buildings, the fortified city of Quimper is a wonderful place for simply strolling and taking in the local atmosphere. It is also home to the magnificent Cathedral St Corentin and the unmissable fine art museum.

You can also hop on a cruise to the Glénan islands, take a nice walk along the coastal walkways to enjoy the Breton Riviera or hire bikes if you prefer to travel at a quicker pace. There are many nearby beaches to relax on and enjoy watersports such as paddle boarding.
