Pitch with bike

General

  • Under 10 minutes' drive or 20 minutes canal bike ride from Rennes
  • Spacious accommodation areas over 100 hectares of forest park
  • Play area, shop and extensive amenities including disabled facilities

Ever been to Rennes? If not, sort a trip forthwith: for rambles around the old streets and Place Sainte-Anne, buying armfuls of fresh produce at the market, pottering around the Museum of Brittany… and sampling cider and galettes all around town.

Already been to Rennes? Sort another trip forthwith – and save euros for shopping, cider and galettes with a stay at the Ille-et-Vilaine site of Camping des Gayeulles, in a forest park only three and a half kilometres from the fine old Breton city: that’s under 10 minutes’ drive, 25 minutes by bus, about 20 minutes by bike along the Ille-et-Rance canal, and any length of time on foot depending on consumption of Breton cider…

The scenic forest setting of this park covers plenty of room – 100 hectares are here to roam – and a wide range of amenities including toilets, showers, disabled facilities, a launderette and free wifi. A play area is to hand to entertain les enfants while les grownups sort dinner from the site shop; elsewhere, the site's forest park surroundings are home to leisure options such as miniature golf and treetop adventuring.

Although Rennes is rightly splendid, the site’s nifty location means you should get out and about around Brittany while here too: options include Saint-Malo and Cancale under an hour’s drive towards the north coast; Fougères 35 minutes to the south east and Vitré 40 minutes east… and quite a few smaller towns and teeny villages for more scholarly sampling of Breton cuisine.

Directions


Local attractions

There’s lots to do even closer to the site than Rennes if you don’t fancy a city day (perhaps if you’ve been overly enthusiastic in your tasting of Brittany cider). The site is in a forest park with a small lake and paddleboats, a treetop adventure park, hiking tracks and miniature golf… and a bar/brewery and a health club if you care to continue a leisurely theme indeed.

Get to Rennes with ease too, by hailing the C3 bus from the stop 500 metres from Camping des Gayeulles; services are every 10 minutes. Once in town, the Musée de Bretagne (Museum of Brittany) is at the Champs Libres along with a science museum and a planetarium. The Thabor botanical gardens are a pleasant place for a peaceful time, as are the gardens around the university and the walks by the Canal d'Ille-et-Rance to the city’s north west.

For day trips, a fine château is at Fougères (35 minutes’ drive); even small and reluctant historians should like a look at these. At Vitré (40 minutes), there’s another handsome castle, spectacularly lit up at night; again, even small travellers should like a look...
