Very attractive rural coastal location, with a wide choice of excellent beaches in the area.

Visited in height of French holiday season so site was full throughout our stay.

This review is for La Corniche

Visited in height of French holiday season so site was full throughout our stay. We were unable to choose our pitch, as it had already been allocated to us by site owner - pitch didn't have any shade which was a negative in the heatwave of 2018. Some pitches were shaded; just bad luck that ours wasn't. Site attractively laid out with divisions into smaller sections, divided by low bushes/ hedges, trees etc. Pitch size adequate for our quite large 7m single-axle van with awning; any larger may have struggled. Some pitches may have been larger. Access to site entrance was easy - off the main roads with good signage for last short distance from Plozevet village centre. However, you have to navigate tight corner to get through main barrier into site itself; then we had a difficult time navigating the narrow site access tracks to find our pitch amongst many families playing boules/ petanque on the tracks ! Pros of staying here - near to coast, with nice sandy beaches nearby with rock pools. Coast was deserted by British standards, even in August, and all beach parking free. Sadly it was too hot for coastal walks though these would be fantastic too. Medium-sized site pool was a hit with the children, including a toddler area if needed. No slides etc, but good for having fun and cooling off. Football area also provided which was well-used by kids. Amenities all kept clean, no easy feat in the busy season. Some of them were a bit old-fashioned in style but clean and quite adequate. Site visited by good range of French and Germans while we were there which was nice for us. Not many from UK. Wonderful area for touring, incl Pointe du Raz, Crozon Peninsula, Audierne and Quimper. Cons of site - some nights were very noisy until about 11pm or midnight depending on the entertainment being provided. Our pitch was some distance from the main entertainment area but noise carried. Chemical toilet disposal is situated right next to washing-up sinks.

Lovely site on edge of village. Beaches about 2km and an easy walk. Many restaurants were closed at late September but Quimper about 19 miles. Supermarket with fuel in the village and with a good variety of food etc. Well worth a visit.

This review is for La Corniche

The site has good facilities and the pitches are large, level and surrounded by hedges on three sides making them well sheltered and private. The showers and toilets are clean and good size, with laundry facilities and dishwashing area included in the block. Nice heated swimming pool which was a good size and childrens play area nearby the pool. There was an area which housed a microwave, fridges/ freezers and BBQ's for the campers to use. We stayed out of high season and fresh baquettes/croissants etc still available to order for delivery the following morning. All in all, excellent site. Wifi was available although it seemed to go down every evening.
