General

  • Peaceful seaside site surrounded by coastal hiking and cycling trails
  • Douarnenez's four fishing ports 20 minutes' drive away
  • Set next to woodland and with direct access to Ty Anquer beach

Contemplating a trip to France’s Brittany region? Then how about a simple stay by the sea in fab Finistère?

Set on the edge of a peaceful forest, three minutes’ amble to the golden sands of Ty Anquer beach via a path that takes you direct from the site, Camping de la Mer is set in Douarnenez Bay between Pointe du Raz and the Crozon Peninsula, and within super easy reach of 10 waymarked walking and cycling trails between nearby Ploéven and Ménez-Hom, including the GR 34, which meanders for over 1,800 spectacular kilometres along the beaut Brittany coastline.

Véronique and Claude have set up their spot by the sea serenely among lush landscaping filled with trees and flowering plants; the site is roomy and verdant, and guest accommodation areas are sheltered and provided with partial shade from high hedges.

Leisure facilities here include a pétanque pitch, a playground and a games room, plus heaps of grass and woodland space for excitable littlies to hurtle around, plus frazzled grownups to bask, stroll and snooze in. If you’re looking for lots of entertainment in the way of organised activities, karaoke, sports tournaments and swimming pools, this likely isn’t going to be your bag. If, however, you’re looking for somewhere peaceful to return to for a restful slumber after long days filled with swimming and fishing from the beach or exploring hiking trails and lovely local villages – as well with as a friendly vibe and super helpful hosts – then you’ll be most pleased if you pitch up here.

During high season there’s fresh bread delivery every morning, and the small site shop has a café attached, open a few evenings a week for entertainment in the way of folk song.

The nearest big town of Douarnenez is 20 minutes away by car (or a two-and-a-half-hour coastal hike), and as it’s a fishing port, is a great spot to pick up fresh fish to sizzle on the barbecue before settling back under the starry night sky.

    We loved every aspect of this campsite and will be visiting again. It was fantastic value for money, only a few metres from the beach with big pitches. It was very quiet, however there was a play area for the kids and a small shop with daily delivery of bread. We were the only English people which we loved.

    Super helpful owner, excellent English. Helped with bookings and finding restaurants. Good size pitches. Peaceful but also popular with families.
    Bread/ croissants delivered each morning if booked day before.
    Pitches level and all had electric available at no extra cost.
    Great value for money.

    Disliked: 

    Some of the facilities were getting a bit tired, although everything worked - plenty of hot water. Toilet rolls in loos would have been good instead of having to remember own each time, but this seems common to French sites.

    The place is very calm and very near to the beach. The staff members are very professional and welcome.
    I was asking them for reduction cards for the "Aquashow" and I was surprised that they offered us two free tickets for the "Aquashow".

    La taille des emplacements est largement suffisante.
    Accueil sympa à notre arrivée

    Disliked: 

    Pas d'ombre sur notre emplacement et les sanitaires sont désuets et insuffisants: queue aux douches alors que d'autres blocs sanitaires étaient plus fonctionnels et offraient plus de douches .... vous n'avez donc pas le même service selon votre emplacement. Dommage!

Un camping pour les habitués...08/12/2020

  • Electric optional grass tent, trailer tent or touring caravan pitch

  • Liked: 

    Le site est très bien situé par rapport à la mer avec un accès direct pratique ! Des jeux pour les enfants sont disponibles.
    L'avantage est qu'il n'est pas trop grand.

    Disliked: 

    Le manque d'intimité sur les emplacements, il semble que ce camping soit plus destiné à des habitués.
    Les sanitaires sont un peu vétustes... Et malheureusement il y a des problèmes au niveau des mitigeurs d'eau (l'eau chaude est bouillante et non réglable...)
    Les voisins de terrain étaient très bruyants, à 23h les enfants étaient toujours en train de courir et crier mais ça n'a pas dérangé les propriétaires...
    Des disparités entre les emplacements, certains avaient de quoi s’asseoir et s'abriter...
