What to do and see when camping in Southern Brittany?

Don't look any further for the destination of your next camping holiday, because you have found it! South Brittany has everything you need for a wonderful holiday by the sea.

Where can you stay on a campsite to visit Southern Brittany?

Halfway between Vannes and La Baule, the Moulin de Cadillac offers you a 100% natural holiday between land and sea. The privileged location of our 4-star campsite in Morbihan allows you to travel easily from one end of Southern Brittany to the other. To help you prepare your stay, here are the places not to be missed:

The Gulf of Morbihan and the Bay of Quiberon

The Gulf of Morbihan is one of the most famous inland seas in Europe, enclosed to the west by Locmariaquer and to the east by the Rhuys peninsula. One immediately thinks of the Breton islands that make up the charm of the destination: Belle-Ile-en-Mer, Houat, Hoëdic, Ile aux Moines and Ile d'Arz.

In terms of heritage, Vannes deserves more than a simple diversions. The ancient city of the Venetians, conquered by Julius Caesar, recounts 2000 years of history. On the megalithic coast, other treasures from the past await history-loving tourists: the Carnac alignments, the Gavrinis cairn and the large broken menhir at Locmariaquer.

Take advantage of your stay at our family campsite in the Morbihan to discover the wild coast of Quiberon. In summer and winter, the peninsula offers spectacular and ever-changing landscapes. Take a trip to La Trinité-sur-Mer, in the footsteps of Eric Tabarly. The Breton marina has become a "Mecca" for sailing and ocean racing, where a wind of freedom floats.

The Rhuys Peninsula

At the entrance to the Gulf of Morbihan, head for the Rhuys peninsula, a long arm that closes the "Mor Bihan" (small sea, in Breton). You will have to visit the castle of Suscinio, the Port Navalo fish market, the Cairn du Petit Mont in Arzon and the abbey church of Saint Gildas de Rhuys.

From Damgan to La Roche-Bernard

Between the Rhuys peninsula and the Vilaine estuary, discover the small seaside resort of Damgan, its fine sandy beaches interspersed with small creeks. Your camping trip in Morbihan will also be the perfect opportunity to stroll through the "Petites Cités de Caractère" (small towns of character) that make up the picturesque charm of southern Brittany: La Roche-Bernard, Rochefort-en-Terre, La Gacilly, to name but a few.

The bay of La Baule and the Guérande peninsula

Take advantage of your holiday rental in the South of Morbihan to visit Guérande, its medieval city, its ramparts and its salt marshes. Its neighbours, La Baule and Pornic, are also worth a visit. La Baule has a bay that is classified as the most beautiful sandy beach in Europe and Pornic has an old harbour and Bluebeard's castle.

Just a stone's throw from our campsite in Morbihan, the listed site of the Mine d'Or and the golden cliffs of Pénestin, the wooded valleys of Férel are also must-sees in the Pays de Guérande. We hope you have a great holiday in Southern Brittany!
