Camping holidays: must-sees in Southern Bretagne
Located in Ploemeur, on the border between Morbihan and Finistère, the 3-star Camping la Baie de Ploemeur is an ideal destination for exploring southern Bretagne. Here’s a sneak preview of what’s in store for your camping holiday in Southern Brittany!
From Lorient to Vannes via the Auray river
From our campsite near Lorient (10 km), stop off at the Cité de la voile Eric Tabarly and visit the Flore-S645 submarine and its museum. Afterwards, set off from Larmor Plage to discover the Gâvres peninsula, passing by the citadel of Port-Louis on the way back. Take the opportunity to visit the Musée de la Compagnie des Indes and the Musée National de la Marine. Offshore, the island of Groix catches your eye. Hard to resist! South of Lorient, discover the Ria d’Etel and the island of Saint-Cado. Picturesque as can be! The next day, spend an unforgettable day in Vannes, a medieval city with a rich heritage. Halfway along the route, stop off at the port of Saint-Goustan, the starting point for a lovely stroll along the Auray river.
Quiberon Bay and the Gulf of Morbihan
Hiking enthusiasts will want to hurry along the rugged Quiberon coast on the GR 34, the ancient customs path that circumnavigates Bretagne. Looking to set sail? Embark on a boat tour of the Golfe du Morbihan, with stopovers on Ile d’Arz, Houat, Hoedic and Ile aux Moines. And let’s not forget Belle-Ile-en-Mer, Brittany’s largest island, accessible by boat from Quiberon. Make a detour to Carnac, world-famous for its menhir alignments!
South Finistère: Pont-Aven, Concarneau, the Glénan archipelago
At the crossroads between Morbihan and Finistère, our 3-star campsite in Southern Bretagne is an excellent starting point for visiting the most beautiful places in South Finistère. The painters’ town of Pont-Aven and the famous walled city of Concarneau are just a 40-minute drive from the campsite!
From the coast, you can see the islands of Glénan, an archipelago with a Caribbean feel, home to the Glénan narcissus, a flower unique in the world. And if you’re ready to go to the ends of the earth, head for the Pointe du Raz and the cliffs of Cap Sizun. It’s a 1h40-minute drive from the campsite, but the pointe bretonne – classified as a Grand Site de France – is well worth the trip!
Now that you know where to go, what to see and what to do in Southern Bretagne, it’s time to choose your campsite! Discover our mobile home accommodation by the sea and our spacious pitches to pitch your tent, moor your caravan or motorhome. On site, you’ll enjoy the heated swimming pool, children’s play areas, multisport pitch, activities and entertainment organized by the campsite in high season.
