Brittany Holiday ideas with Canvas Holidays

If you are looking for a holiday in Brittany, check out some of these holiday ideas from family camaping holiday specialist Canvas Holidays.

A must-visit for any walking or cycling fanatic, Canvas Holidays’ Brittany site ‘Camping L’Atlantique’ is the ideal base for exploring the beautiful region of Fouesnant. Famed as a haven of nature and peace, the area offers visitors the opportunity to explore windswept deserted beaches, verdant groves of Cyprus trees and sea pine, and marine lakes and grassland packed with wildlife.

A wide selection of well-trodden local tourist routes of between seven and eleven kilometres snake past the campsite and offer visitors a perfect day out in the fresh Atlantic air. Popular trails include ‘Autour de Beg-Meil’, which winds its way between the headlands of Beg-Meil and Mousterlin via stunning sandy beaches, beautiful coves and dunes.

As you venture further, beaches become more remote and are increasing flanked by the fertile bogs and swamps of Penfoulic – settle down and bask in the sun or wander carefully so as not to disturb the abundant flora and fauna that calls this place home.

Cyclists can head off on the 33 kilometre circuit ‘Le Tour de Fouesnant’ which encompasses all the main sights and spectacular scenery the region has to explore. Or, for those looking for a more leisurely stroll, ‘Le Marais de Mousterlin’ is an easier flat cycle route, perfect for beginners. Bikes can be hired from the campsite from 13 € per day.

In the pretty town of Fouesnant, look out for the myriad artisans still producing the tiny lace strips renowned as the finest in Brittany, or clamber back in time with a visit to Romanesque Saint-Pierre. Don’t leave without sampling the famous local cider – so good it even has its own festival in July.

Camping L’Atlantique offers guests the opportunity to order a picnic lunch for 8€ per person and half board from 18€ per day for those who want to put their feet up once back on site.

A long-time favourite with Canvas Holidays visitors, Camping L’Atlantique makes a relaxing base with a friendly atmosphere, first class facilities and accommodation ranging from tents to luxurious mobile homes.

A visit in May or June is ideal for couples, groups of walkers and young families with July and August enjoying a lively atmosphere perfect for older children with Canvas Holidays’ innovative FamilyExtra activity programme in full swing.

Stay seven nights at Camping L’Atlantique, Fouesnant, Brittany from £571 per family based on arrivals on 21 June 2010 with two adults and up to four children sharing a three bedroom select mobile home with decking. Price includes a midweek Dover to Calais ferry crossing for a car and passengers.
