Brittany has a unique historical and cultural heritage. If you like to combine holiday pleasure with cultural discovery, this is another good reason to go camping in Brittany

The sea is nice, the water park of your campsite too, but in Brittany, it is important to know how to get out of the campsite to enjoy the wonders to visit. Here are some of them:

Brittany's historical and cultural heritage

Visiting Brittany is like diving into history. Among the most famous sites, don't miss the bay of Mont Saint-Michel, the Solidor Tower and the famous ramparts of Saint-Malo or Concarneau, or the castles in Upper Brittany, such as the famous Château des Ducs de Bretagne.

Among other megaliths, discover the Carnac alignments during your stay in this chic seaside resort, around which you will find about twenty campsites.

As you will have understood, between lighthouses, manor houses, castles and museums, everything is conducive to an exotic visit in Brittany. Even a visit to the biscuit and canning factories is worth the diversions!

The list of wonders to discover in Brittany is too long, but you can access it on the Brittany tourism website!

Towns and villages with charm and personality

Between modern cities, cities of art and history and small towns of character, the list is very long: the Old Rennes, the medieval city of Dinan, the City of Art or Vannes with its half-timbered houses, the pretty little stone houses with blue shutters of Bréhat, the castle of Fougères, Fort La Latte, the famous villas in Dinard or the charming village Rochefort-en-Terre, located twenty minutes from the Gulf of Morbihan.

Where to stay in a campsite to enjoy this exceptional heritage?

The choice of a campsite in Brittany is very wide and will undoubtedly satisfy your desires. Choose one of the 4 Breton departments (Finistère, Morbihan, Côtes d'Armor, Ille-et-Villaine) or select a tourist site.

As for me, after having taken in the sights, I enjoy relaxing in the swimming pool, and that's just as well, as many campsites in Brittany are equipped with indoor swimming pools!
