Just outside the campsite: the Rhuys peninsula!

From your mobile home rental in Southern Brittany, travel around the Rhuys peninsula and linger around Sarzeau, Arzon, Le Tour du Parc, Saint-Gildas-de-Rhuys or Saint-Armel... So many possible stops that will punctuate your camping holidays in Southern Brittany! Here the landscapes are invigorating and ideal for water sports (sailing, kite surfing, sea kayaking, diving, sand yachting, sea fishing...). Camping on the Rhuys peninsula is also an opportunity to discover the Breton heritage. Amongst the must-see sites, the castle of Suscinio is an amazing castle on the seafront which was a Benedictine priory before becoming a residence of the Dukes of Brittany. You should also make a small diversions to the abbey of Saint-Gildas de Rhuys founded in the 6th century (536) by Gildas, a monk from England. After visiting the Museum of Arts, Trades and Commerce of Saint-Gildas, you could head for the Crouesty marina where major nautical events take place, such as the Semaine du Golfe, one of Brittany's great maritime events. You will also be very close to the Port-Navalo lighthouse which marks the entrance to the Gulf of Morbihan, another discovery that will brighten up your day. Before returning to your mobile home, chalet or bungalow, don't hesitate to follow a passionate oyster farmer's guide who will take you to his oyster beds for an exciting and tasty walk! Your camping holiday in Southern Brittany will be full of surprises!

From the campsite, explore the hinterland of the Gulf of Morbihan!

The Gulf of Morbihan is full of unusual places and you will have to come back several times to the campsite to discover them all! The hiking trails in Southern Brittany are home to a religious heritage that is often very discreet, with churches, chapels and fountains hidden deep in the Morbihan countryside. Between Vannes and Questembert, the Langroez circuit offers you the opportunity to start from the picturesque village of La Vraie Croix and follow a wooded and hilly route along the Coët Ruel and Ferrières streams. Continuing your escapades along the vast Lanvaux moors towards Saint-Armel, you can discover "forgotten" dolmens and menhirs. On your way to the Lasné salt marsh - an old salt marsh connected to the Gulf of Morbihan by a narrow channel - you will observe many migratory birds such as the elegant avocet or the white stilt. During their camping holiday in Southern Brittany, hikers will follow the GR® 34 between Noyalo and Theix, where the green marshes appear and land and sea merge. As you can see, camping in Southern Brittany is an opportunity to reconnect with nature and admire a remarkable biodiversity!

The Lorient area, an essential stopover on your camping holiday...

Lorient and its surroundings are also among the highlights of your camping holiday in Southern Brittany. If you have booked your mobile home rental in August, you will have the chance to attend the Lorient Interceltic Festival, which brings together more than 4,500 musicians, singers, dancers and artists from all over the world to help you discover the culture of the Celtic countries. The Lorient region also offers magnificent landscapes in all seasons and a host of leisure activities geared towards the ocean. During your stay, stop off at the Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly, a fun museum dedicated to the world of ocean racing. If you like history, visit the Compagnie des Indes de Lorient museum in the citadel of Port Louis. For children, the campsite recommends a day at the zoo in Pont-Scorff, a 12-hectare animal park with over 600 animals. The youngest ones will have stars in their eyes when they see the sea lions and parrots!
