Just Guérande gorgeous: Camping La Fontaine's location is properly fab. You'll find stacks to do around this friendly and spotlessly kept campsite in the old region of southern Brittany, as it's set rurally near the medieval town and old walls of Guérande, famed for its salt marshes and near more marshes and wetlands at the Brière Regional Natural Park.
It's close to the white sandy beach of La Baule too, the eight kilometres of sands stretching way out along the seaside resort locals have been ebbing to since the late nineteenth century. And as pour le activities… one could have swimming, surfing, sailing, golf, horse riding, strolling, or pedalling placidly along one of the many winding local off-road routes, all within easy reach...
La Fontaine's amiable owners Joelle and Marc have renovated the campsite since taking over in 2011 and have it all immaculately kept and up to date: there's a new pool, a pétanque court and a play area, along with an amenities block with free hot showers and disabled access, and a laundry room and washing-up corner.
Free wifi is available throughout the site.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

As you'll see when you get there, there's stacks to do around Camping La Fontaine, whether your tastes tend towards the watery, the historic or just gawping at the local landscape: this is the place where we recommend you now look for the marshes of Guérande snapshot among the site pics…
More watery and snapworthy land is all around the nearby Brière Regional Nature Park, 40,000 hectares' worth of marshland, reed beds, canals, islands and wetland meadows. Take a boat trip to explore it at a properly leisurely pace, or bike your way up to the bell tower of Saint-Lyphard church for yet more snapworthy views of the marsh and its surrounds.
This is all very much a peaceful place, but to get even more into serene surrounds, take another boat trip or two around the islands of Houat and Hoëdic to the northeast of beaut Belle-Île, for Houat's beaches and paths, and the coves, fort and Neolithic sites of Hoëdic.
Gorgeous Guérande is one of France's Towns and Regions of Art and History and is best known for its medieval walls, among the best preserved in the country. We'd also recommend a wander around the harbour town of Croisic, for tucking into meals on said terrace and then seeing the critters at the Océarium; and day trips to Saint-Nazaire (20km) and to Sarzeau or Vannes (70km).
