If you have never seen the Pointe du Raz and its magnificent panorama, go to the end of the world and walk along this famous rocky cape in Finistère.

Not to be missed in the north-west of Brittany, the Abers region: the Aber-Benoît, Aber-Wrac'h and Aber-Ildut are all different and offer breathtaking landscapes, which change with each tide.

Forests, between countryside and mountains

Did you know? Brittany has 380,000 hectares of forest! To discover this beautiful region in unequalled conditions, on foot or by bike, you can explore the mythical forest of Brocéliande and the Montagnes Noires (black mountains) or the Monts d'Arrée and its wild landscapes.

To take advantage of these sublime landscapes, nature lovers can follow the many hiking trails, such as the famous GR 34, also known as the "sentier des douaniers", which runs along more than 1,800 km of the Breton coast. You can also choose to hike along the Crozon peninsula or Belle-Ile-en-Mer during your stay at the campsite.

Finally, take advantage of the preserved nature of the Brière Regional Park, the second largest marshland in France after the Camargue, located a stone's throw from La Baule and the Guérande salt marshes. Nicknamed "Black Country" because of the peat, it is home to a unique flora and abundant fauna: herons, harriers, teals, spoonbills, geese and ducks.
