Pitches

General

  • Direct access to Pointe de la Torche, the famed Breton surfing beach
  • Horse riding available within 400 metres
  • Heated pool, adventure playground, plus summer food, music and sports

Everybody go surfing… Brittany all the way.

If you're a Brit seeking a surf hol but also seeking to escape busy beaches in Cornwall, zip across the Channel to Finistère's Camping de la Torche: it's less than a kilometre and a half from the famed and foamy waters of Pointe de la Torche, with direct access via a peaceful footpath. And if you're coming from anywhere else on the planet? Take your board or buy your first and trot along here too, for this is mighty surf.

More of a basker, paddler or sand wanderer? A huge swathe of beach also awaits at La Torche, and the sands have easy access to the spectacular GR 34 hiking trail snaking for 1,800 kilometres around Brittany's coast. There's birdwatching to be had around the nearby marshlands, and the Bay of Audierne and Penmarch peninsula to explore, and French fishing villages (and fish) to investigate fully. Townwise, Plomeur is four kilometres away.

Back at base, while away many hours at the big heated pool, while the kids bounce around the adventure playground with huge inflatable. Sporty options include volleyball and football at the multisports area and pétanque at the pétanque court.

July and August see loads of entertainment such as crêpe and barbecue nights, karaoke, discos, concerts, tournaments and bingo.

    We stayed in a tent pitch for a 4 nights, pitches were separated with a tree bushes which gives you a privacy . There is plenty to do for kids, such as a trampoline or swimming pool. Every single person at Camping de La Torche were so friendly and helpful, only 4 min drive to the supermarket. The path to the beach only 30 min walk , by car 5 min drive, beautiful small country towns. Surf shop or rental right at the beach,
    Definitely coming back next year,Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Toller Platz mit sehr freundlichem Personal, surfspots in der Nähe16/07/2020

  • Liked: 

    Die Angestellten an der Rezeption waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, dabei sehr herzlich, wir bekamen Tipps zum Essen gehen und um die Gegend zu erkunden. Die Stellplätze waren ausreichend groß, wir konnten direkt mit dem Auto am Platz parken, der surfspot "pointe de la torche" ist 5 autominuten entfernt. Es gab ein Schwimmbad auf dem platz, das wir jedoch nicht genutzt haben.

    Disliked: 

    Die Sanitäranlagen waren etwas alt und nicht so sauber wiewires von anderen Campingplätzen in Frankreich gewohnt sind, da wir nur 2 Nächte dort verbracht haben fanden wir es nicht so schlimm.

    Die Besitzerin ist sehr nett und immer hilfsbereit. Wir hatten einen großen Stellplatz bekommen, mit viel Sichtschutz.
    Der Campingplatz ist sehr kinderfreundlich. Es gibt vier Trampoline , überdachten Pool,
    Tischtennisplatten...

    Disliked: 

    Ab Juli gibt es W-Lan nur morgens. Was ich einerseits gut finde aber auch nervig wenn man es dringend braucht.
    In der neben Saison ist nur das Haus offen, wo die Klo-Kabinen und die Becken zum abwaschen direkt neben einander sind. Was ich zum Teil sehr unangenehm finde.

Directions


Local attractions

Surf, surf and more surf… La Torche is famed throughout France – and beyond – as a top surfing spot; its waves are so splendid it's also been host to the Windsurfing World Cup. If you've never dipped your toe before but would quite like to try, several surf schools are around to show you the way and to hire out kit.

For strolls and gentler times, take your ornithological interests and your binoculars to the Maison de la Baie d'Audierne (10 minutes' drive), a bird and rescue centre with exhibits and information on the excellent birdwatching around this part of Brittany. Guided tours are available.

Fish fans should meander along to the 'city of fish' Haliotika (20 minutes), for exhibits on the local fishing trade and the peeps that ply it, as well as a look at one of the biggest fish auctions in the land. The history of Finistère is laid out at Penmarch’s prehistory museum (10 minutes) with over 3,000 archaeological artefacts to potter around, while the town of Pont l'Abbé (20 minutes) is well worth a look for its costume museum.

Further along the coast, Bénodet (25 minutes) has been a popular Brittany seaside spot for decades: laze around the harbour or the sandy family-friendly beach, before an hour or three in one of Bénodet's seafood restaurants.

Horse riding is available within 400 metres.
