Outdoor pool

General

  • Well-appointed family site less than 10 minutes' drive from the beach
  • Within easy reach of watersports at Pointe de la Torche
  • Indoor pool and spa area, outdoor pool with waterslides and whirlpool

Sliding, bubbling, soaking and snoozing are all served up in spades at the pools of this well-appointed family site, settled snugly in the countryside and less than 10 minutes’ pootle from the beautest of beaches around the Pays Bigouden area.

Your hosts Brigitte and Pascal have set Camping Les Genêts up splendidly for family stays, among lush green grounds and with facilities like a pool area, sports courts and kids’ playthings on hand to keep guests of all ages entertained for weeks.

Two pool areas are on site: the outdoor pool is kitted out with a paddling pool with water games, three waterslides, massage jets, a whirlpool and a water umbrella and waterfall to splash around under, and the covered indoor pool (with retractable roof) has a spa pool and a solarium alongside for max relaxation factor.

And for entertainment out of the water? There’s a table tennis area, a beach volleyball court and a pétanque pitch, plus for the tiddlers there’s a play area with a wee climbing frame, swings, a bouncy castles and a trampoline.

In July and August the team organises kids' club activities for tadpoles aged between five and 12 years, and afternoon sports tournaments are held twice weekly for teens. And the entertainment’s not just for younger peeps: pétanque competitions and morning aquagym sessions are held for adult activity seekers, and a program of lively evening entertainment like dances, karaoke nights, concerts, quiz nights and magic shows are put on for all the family.

A really lovely site in a beautiful area.09/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomNatasha S.Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The whole site, with good sized, level pitches, ability to park next to your pitch or in the car park at the entrance. We arrived early as had travelled on the overnight ferry to Roscoff and were welcomed and shown to our pitch before the official arrival time by the site owner, who spoke limited but understandable English, he asked us to come back to the office later in the day to get more information about the local area from the person who usually mans the reception.
    This is a quiet site overall, with good quality amenities which are cleaned often, we had an electric grass pitch which accepted our English EHU plug and the water tap was easily accessible and close by..
    The local area has lots to offer, shops and beach close by and the people in reception were able to explain where to go and visit for days out, although we chose to spend lots of days on site as the pool was perfect for our family and there was lovely food served in the onsite cafe bar (if limited in choice), meaning we did not have to go out if we did not want to.
    The aqua fit sessions were a particularly good addition on the days we were able to join and although the site does offer kids clubs and evening entertainment this was not offered in such a way that it interrupted our peace and quiet.
    Overall a lovely site, we would certainly go back and recommend it to others.

    Disliked: 

    Fairly frequently ran out of loo roll in the toilets regardless of them being cleaned and topped up regularly, the amount of people using them outweighed quantity put in each time.

    Lack of showers, changing rooms and toilets around the pool area- the ones that were there were not very nice.

    The amount of children cycling at speed around the site on an evening in large groups with screeching brakes, considering how quiet the site was at other times, there seemed to be about an hour each evening when the peace and quiet was shattered.

    The WiFi was generally quite poor, which when staying with 2 teenagers is not ideal.

Directions


Local attractions

There’s lots to visit around this cracking coastal and countryside locale, the first of which should surely be the Phare d'Eckmühl, one of the tallest lighthouses in the world. If you’re partial to your poisson, next should be the vast ‘fishing city’ of Haliotika, to learn what it’s like to be a fisherman with a peek behind the scenes at one of France’s biggest fish auctions.

Active sorts should head to Pointe de la Torche, one of the fabbest of Finistère spots for watersports at the southern end of the wild Bay of Audierne, and those who wish to stick to dry land can easily access horse riding, walks and cycling trails in the immediate vicinity.

Delve into l’histoire of the Finistère region at Penmarch’s prehistory museum with a wander around exhibits of more than 3,000 archaeological artefacts, or head to the Breton market town of Pont l'Abbé to potter around its museum of costume and furniture.
