"all I needed to do was lock the front door in one location in the morning, and unlock it in a new one in the evening."
Andrew Eames, Financial Times (22/06/18)
Walking holidays for singles, couples or 2 friends
We can accommodate up to 2 people in our caravan, but the Brittany coast path is a safe, tranquil place to walk alone. Sometimes this is the best way to experience a landscape. But come with a friend, walk as a couple; all are welcome and we'll be in the background to help.
We can cater for larger parties, but extra guests would be under canvas.
Support and accommodation
Our solution to the thin spread of accommodation on the Brittany coast path is a well equipped caravan with a king sized, double mattress using coastal campsites. We provide everything you'd expect in an established camp: windbreaks, awning, outside furniture, wifi, electric hook up, bikes, barbecue and full kitchen facilities.
Campsites offer perhaps the best accommodation option for walking the Bretagne coast, with enviable locations often bordering the GR34 coast path.
Using our caravan and the coastal campsites eliminates the need for unpacking every day and the ferrying inland to B&Bs, maintaining that special enchantment of being right by the sea. In the evenings you'll be able to take a stroll on the beach, watch the sun set over the sea, explore further on the bikes we provide, or have a dip.
Whilst you hike 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, outside furniture, a barbecue (including the charcoal) and all the equipment you'd expect in a well-planned camp.
We provide all bedding and towels, including beach towels.
We will do food shopping for you as well as laundry and collecting items from the pharmacy. Campsites are often in beautiful locations not necessarily convenient for shops. We can source organic and gluten free products.
We can help with reservations for restaurants and 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 WIFI, via a device which gives you a secure, portable WIFI hotspot for up to 10 devices. This uses the provider with the best local coverage 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. If you prefer, we can transport your bikes (2 bikes maximum).
What's the coast path like underfoot?
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.

Getting to Finistère's coast path
Our south Finistère 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. The Crozon has no stations, but SNCF run buses from Quimper which is on the same line. 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. Flights are also available to Dinard in the north of Brittany, near St Malo, from London Stanstead. A limited summer service may be available to Brest in Finistère from Birmingham or Southampton.
If you come by car to walk our itineraries, we arrange covered, private parking; the cost of which is included in the daily price. Crozon is 50 miles from Roscoff and 150 from St Malo. Le Pouldu is 100 miles from Roscoff and 130 from St Malo.
