Suitable for singles, couples and groups of three. More under canvas.
We can accommodate up to 3 people in our caravan, but the Brittany coast path is a safe, tranquil place to walk alone as a single and a calm, quiet place to relax as a couple. All are welcome and we'll be in the background to help.
If you have a larger party, we can help, but extra guests would be under canvas.
Support and accommodation
We accommodate you in a smart caravan, with a proper king sized, double mattress and a generous single. You only unpack once and you have full kitchen facilities. Campsites occur quite frequently along the Bretagne coast and are often in enviable positions bordering the GR34 coast path. Once you have arrived you will not need to be ferried around in vehicles.
In effect we are offering a coastal walking and caravaning holiday without you having to bring a caravan all the way to Brittany. We move and set up your camp at the next site, do your shopping and laundry, leaving you free to walk, explore the coast and relax.
This is a new venture, our season starting in late April 2018. We have only very recently purchased the caravan, so pictures will come later.
Following an enquiry for March, I have double checked this season's campsite openings and can confirm the following. We can do breaks from 3 to 6 nights of our itinerary, starting from Le Pouldu on the 6th April. Full week's can begin on 20th April.
We will offer April customers a 20% discount to acknowledge their pioneering role.
Whilst you enjoy Brittany's coast path, what do we do?
We only cater for one group at a time. We tow the caravan with our Eriba campervan, which also provides our accommodation. We stay on the same campsite as you, but you have your own pitch and privacy.
We set up your camp at the next campsite each day. This includes a classic Dutch caravan, an awning and a toilet tent, although facilities are available on all campsites. We provide all bedding and towels, including beach towels.
We will do any shopping and laundry you need and can help with restaurant reservations and calling taxis, if required.
If you would feel happier knowing that someone knows exactly where you are and have a smart phone with GPS we recommend downloading the free app Viewranger. Using the "buddy beacon" feature will allow us to pinpoint your location.
We provide a device which gives you a secure, portable WIFI hotspot for up to 10 devices. This uses the provider with the best mobile coverage of the area and, included in our pricing, comes with 1GB of data allowance (about sufficent for 2000 emails). Should you require more capacity an additional 1GB costs €10.
We provide 2 bicycles for your use. Please note bicycles are not allowed on the GR34 coast path.
How fit do I need to be for the sentier côtier?
The GR34 is a well maintained decent path, but there are ups and downs. There are brief sections where you have to negotiate rocks, rough steps and there are often tripping hazards in the form of roots and rocks.
And how far is that in steps?
We have tried to make the sections on our itinerary an enjoyable length, but the campsites are where they are. Remember we offer complete flexibility, so when planning your own itinerary you don't have to walk every day. Our longest distance in a day is just over 20kms (12.5 miles) and the daily average is 9.6 miles. If you think in steps and want a target to aim at, that's a 19200 steps daily average, assuming 2000 steps per mile.
If planning your own walk bear in mind that we find ourselves averaging 4km/hr (2.5mph). We are easily distracted, especially by bird life and wild flowers, but that relatively slow pace also reflects the often changeable character of the path.
One person €100 per night
Two people €120 per night ...€60 per person/night
Three people €140 per night
Rest day (extra days at same campsite) deduct €20.
Extra guests, under canvas, email us for quote.
Prices based on a minimum of 3 nights. We have no standard start day.
These prices include all camping costs and the 1 night in B&B if you choose to do our full itinerary. Food, laundry costs and taxis you may choose to use are not included.
You should ensure your European health insurance card (EHIC) is up to date. This entitles you to the same reimbursements as a French citizen, in some cases only 70% of the costs; you must, therefore, ensure you have separate, personal travel insurance cover.
A 10% deposit will secure the dates you want. Payment can be in pounds or Euros. If you pay in pounds we will apply the current exchange rate.
We will email you a PayPal invoice, or you can pay by bank transfer.
Getting to Finistère's coast path
Our itinerary is conveniently accessed by the TGV. Trains from Rennes to Quimperlé run regularly and take about 1 hour and 45 minutes. At the end of our itinerary, in Concarneau, you are a brief taxi ride from Rosporden which is on the same TGV line. The journey to Rennes taking about 2 hours. If you are a foot passenger on the St Malo ferries, trains from there connect at Rennes.
Rennes has flights from many international destinations, including many from the UK.
Ryanair are flying to Lorient this coming year from Stanstead and more routes may be forthcoming. The airport at Lorient is a short taxi ride to Quimperlé.
If you come by car, we can arrange parking.
