Camping Le Drennec: Pitches on site (photo added by manager on 06/09/2022)

General

  • Quiet and friendly site 25 miles from Roscoff, run by a British couple
  • By Lac du Drennec in a national park; watersports centre close by
  • Beach, lakeside restaurant and bar

What a splendid site. There's pretty much all you need at the serene and mightily scenic lakeside site of Camping Le Drennec in Brittany – 'idyllic', 'little paradise' and 'wonderful' are among the guest accolades here...

If you're arriving from or on your way to L'Angleterre, you'll likely hurrah at the setting too, hidden away in a rural spot but only 45 minutes' drive from Roscoff. Guests of all ilks will be well pleased too to hear of Le Drennec's other fab features: a spectacular lakeside location beside the fishing haven of Lac du Drennec; surroundings in Finistère's Armorique Regional Natural Park; a beach right next door, and a hugely warm and friendly welcome from English owners Belinda and Andrew.

Facilities include a tennis court, a covered outdoor area with picnic tables and a shop selling ice creams, snacks and basic provisions. The beach next to the lake has a play area, volleyball net and table tennis; guests can of course also use the sands as a launching point for lake paddles and swims, or amble over to the watersports centre two minutes' walk away for more active lake-based options. Fishing's a popular pastime in the lake too; just make sure you bag a local permit before casting off.

Also next to the lake is the swish Au Lac bar and restaurant, with terrace and accompanying stunning view, plus a changing menu of homemade food. There's a communal barbecue and firepit if you'd rather sort supper or breakfast pitchside; bread can be ordered in advance for the following day and supplies picked up in local town Commana, 10 minutes' drive away. On site, there's a snack shack serving a selection of hot food at weekends in low season and every evening in July and August.

    Lovely setting between trees and almost next to the lake. Quiet site with the owners taking care of everything themselves. Warm welcome and lots of little nice touches in our wooden hut.

    Pleasant woodland site run by friendly and helpful English couple. Clean and adequate facilities. Easy access to Lac Drennac with lovely circular walk and swimming. No shops within walking distance but bread and pastries can be ordered. Good restaurant nearby (didn’t eat there but good recommendation). Late season so very quiet.

    Getting to site so late, due to traffic, that there was no time to explore before the sun went down. Unfortunately, off early in the morning for the ferry so no time to appreciate facilities or the site.

We loved the rural location with lake to swim in. …07/09/2023

    We loved the rural location with lake to swim in. Belinda and Andy are great and really helpful.
    Our pitch was under the tree canopy which did shield us from the rain. Andy came to check if we were happy with the pitch which was really nice.
    The onsite snack shack is brilliant value and the best bakery products can be ordered for a morning pickup.
    The facilities are more than adequate for your needs but don't be surprised of you end up sharing the loo with a frog or two.
    No Wi-Fi onsite and sketchy signal, which is great for a total rest but my teenager didn't see it like that!.

Directions


Local attractions

Lac du Drennec covers 110 hectares so is a stellar spot for watersports, lakeside walks and wildlife spotting; it's a famed brown and rainbow trout fishing lake too, with about 8,000 rainbow trout of up to 2kg added to the waters each year. Also close by, nearby riding stable can arrange hacks out into the countryside and natural park surrounds around the lake.

For hiking further afield, Belinda and Andrew recommend wanders around the Monts d'Arrée mountain range: a top pick to hike up to is Saint-Michel Chapel on Mont Saint-Michel de Brasparts, accessible from Saint-Rivoal 10 minutes' drive away. The spectacular views from here include the Brittany peat bogs, the lake at Brennilis and countryside all the way to Morlaix Bay: bring your camera along.

The north and west coasts of Brittany are within 30 to 45 minutes' drive.
