Hiking and biking in Brittany
Taking your hiking boots? It’s a short walk from the campsite to the Devils Rocks (Roches du Diable). Sound like a fairy tale? Well it is!

There’s an international canoe competition here every year. Hiking and biking is a real treat throughout Brittany. Rivers wind through the countryside. Resulting in a rugged green landscape. At times mysterious, often delicate. Follow the paths along the water ways and pass by the most beautiful castles and little harbours.

Rumour has it, that it was home to King Arthur and Merlin the wizard around 1160.
3 large nature parks
There are three large nature parks in Brittany. Parc Naturel Régional du Golfe du Morbihan near Vannes, with its prehistoric island Gavrinis, Sucinio castle on the Rhuys peninsula and countless oyster farms. So that’s where all those oysters come from!
Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique dominates the area around Brest. This gorgeous nature reserve stretches from the Islands of the Iroise sea, and the Crozon peninsula, to the seaside village of Aulne and Monts d’Arrée. Want to see this all these places at the same time? Then climb the 330 m high mountain Menez-Hom for some incredible views!
You’ll find the third large nature park, Parc Naturel Régional de Brière, close to Saint-Nazaire and Guérande. These magnificent marshlands are home to wild ducks, shelducks, kingfishers, eel and pike. All living in perfect harmony. The houses in the area are built using materials from the surroundings: stones, earth, reeds. If you’re a real nature lover then this park is a must see for you!
Soak up some real culture in Brittany
Quimperlé: stroll through the medieval little streets
Quimperlé is a lovely little Breton town, just 10 kilometres from the campsite. Zigzag through the ancient medieval alleys or gaze over the river, lapping gently at its banks, from one of the old stone bridges. The three rivers, the Isole, Ellé and Laïta all meet here on their way down to the Atlantic Ocean. The town’s main attraction? That’ll be the 13th century Gothic style church. The lovely terraced bars and cafés you’ll come across are also a real treat!.
Port-Aven awakens the artist in you!
Did you like Quimperlé? Then you’ll really love Port-Aven. This dreamy little riverside town, famed for its artists, has inspired many writers and painters, most notably Gaugain. Take just one look at the harbour… and you’ll know why. Boats gently bobbing up and down, romantic half-timbered houses, rusty sailboats moored by the pier and an old water mill rattling through the water. You’re surrounded by a sea of green and colourful flowers. This delightful little town, at the mouth of the River Aven, is a sight to behold. Not to be missed when in Pont-Aven: a walk along "the artists way" through the picturesque narrow alleys. Built up an appetite? Then visit the traditional biscuit making factory.
Behind the town walls of Concarneau
Concarneau is a lively 14th century fortified fisherman’s bastion, with its own castle sat on a small rocky island. The rugged town walls of the so called “ Closed City “ hide delightful little streets, which are great for roaming around in. Hop from charming curiosity shops to cosy cafés and from the fishing museum to, you guessed it, some excellent sea food restaurants. This fortified walled town is France’s third largest fishing port. No wonder the seafood tastes so fresh! Coming in August? Then visit the "Fête des Filets Bleus". The famous Blue Nets Festival with lots of traditional music and dancing. It’s an amazing experience and just 50 kilometres away from the campsite Le Ty Nadan.
More beautiful places in Brittany
Looking for more delightful little places in Brittany, which you won’t be able to take your eyes off? Well take your pick.

Then visit Le Faouët, an important historical place, with 16th century market halls and a stunning chapel set in an excitingly different location: by a ravine.
Want to combine your dose of culture with a bag full of souvenirs? Then go shopping and sight-seeing in Quimper, the capital of "Cornouaille". The rivers Steir and Odet converge by this city. Wander down to the lovely boutiques on Rue Kéréon or one of the many other lively little shopping streets. Experience complete tranquility in the 8th century cathedral. The museums in Quimper are also well worth a visit. Our top tip? The studios of the famous ceramics factory of HB-Henriot.
Follow in the footsteps of Asterix and Obelix in Carnac
Menhirs. Made famous by the Asterix comic books: incredibly heavy, huge granite rocks which Obelix throws through the air, using just one hand. Thousands of these menhirs dominate the landscape around Carnac, sometimes stretching out for miles. It’s an impressive sight. Archeologists and historians still haven’t solved this mystery. You won’t believe your eyes! Especially near Menec, Kerlescan and Kermario. Visiting the menhir field early in the morning or in the evening? Then the sunlight creates an extra sense of mystery. It’s just a … stone’s throw from the Menhir museum, a great way to add an educational ending to a special day out. Although, the fantastic restaurants, just down the road, in the hip little harbour town of La-Trinité-sur-Mer are also very tempting! And no…there are no stone grill BBQ places here….but the seafood! Oh là là.
