General

  • Scenic site by a small lake in the Brière Regional Natural Park
  • Free fishing and free use of pedalo boats
  • Covered pool, solarium, playgrounds, playroom, restaurant and shop

Free fishing, anyone? How about free use of pedalo boats too, in a green and scenic setting around a serene and scenic lake… in a wildlife haven in the Brière Regional Natural Park?

All the above, stacks of space and a family-friendly vibe are at the Loire-Atlantique's Camping Le Deffay, on a comely estate owned by generations of the same family since the 19th century. The park is by a small lake for catch and release fishing, birdwatching, nature spotting and general idling, and is among quiet paths and small roads for strolls among the surrounding greenery. When you're ready to venture further, it's 10 minutes' drive from here to Pontchateau, 50 minutes to Nantes, and half an hour to both Guérande and the spectacular and world-famed bay of La Baule.

During your lengthy and lazy days on site, a covered pool is to hand to start off your day swimmingly, alongside a paddling pool to entertain the kids and a sun terrace by both pools for those who prefer to bask. Some waterside time should then beckon, either fishing by the pond or taking a free pedalo boat out onto the surface, before a spot of activity at the lakeside fitness area or taking the kids along to the playgrounds or indoor playground.

And as you'll need fuel after that, how handy that there's a swish restaurant on site with indoor and outdoor seating... and a grocery shop and bread ordering service for supplies, brekkie and picnics.

    This is a lovely quiet site, handily placed for a stopover down west coast. Not that easy to find, but really good value. Even better than last year as good pruning has opened up pitches to more light and air. Toilet facilities very good, if a bit confusing.

    Disliked: 

    Restaurant not open as at June 20th, disappointing as our meal last year was excellent.

    This site surprised us! The estate is huge, beautiful nature, great pool area and bar, and it was practically empty! We were amazed how such a great place could be so empty, definitely a hidden gem! Pitches were spacious, lots of activities, friendly reception. Definitely a great place to visit before the crowds realise what a gem this place is.

    Wij waren blij met alles. Klinkt te mooi om waar te zijn, maar kunnen er niks anders van maken. Prachtige rustige camping , deels aan meer, en verder vanaf meer, op verhoogde terrassen.
    Grote vlakke plaatsen met zon en schaduw per plek. Natuurplek op groot landgoed ( kasteel, boerderij)inclusief alle voorzieningen .Bijzonder vriendelijke campingbeheerders.
    Is zijn vier sterren meer dan waard en gezien prijs / kwaliteit verhouding zeer voordelig in prijs.
    Ook voor gezinnen een ideale plek met speelgelegenheid en overdekt zwembad.
    Deze zijn aan de rand van de camping gesitueerd, zodat het rustig is op de rest van de camping en het natuurgebeuren niet nadelig beïnvloed.
    We raden deze camping ten zeerste aan, met het gevaar dat er geen plek voor ons meer is, wat heel jammer zou zijn.

    Disliked: 

    Dat het zo snel voorbij was.

Directions


Local attractions

Boat and barge trips, salt marsh strolls, horse riding and carriage rides are all easily arranged around the surrounding Brière Regional Natural Park, along with guided hikes from May to October.

Drive south for 30 minutes to reach either more salt marshes at Guérande or (and?) the stunning bay and beach at La Baule, often hailed as the most handsome in the world. An acclaimed golf course is at La Baule too if it's teeing off you're after, and more are at La Bretesche and Savenay 10 and 20 minutes' drive away.

The shipbuilding town and big harbour of Saint-Nazaire (30 minutes) is also worth a look, and if you're on hol with the little squirts they'll probably like a day at the Océarium in Croisic, reachable within 50 minutes' drive.
