Welcome to our lovely quiet little park in the Finistère department of Brittany. The park is surrounded by green countryside, woods and rivers full of various fish and is within walking distance of the local town. The park is just 15 minutes’ drive from the picturesque village of Pont Aven – famous for its association with the post-impressionist painter Paul Gaugin and the park is approximately 2 hours’ drive from Rennes airport and 2½ hours’ drive from St. Malo Ferry Port.
This delightful park is English owned and open 12 months of the year. The park facilities are seasonal and include a bar, shop, laundrette and playground. The local town is just a 1km walk (on a surfaced footpath) from the park and the town has the advantages of shops, restaurants, bars, cafes, boulangeries, banks, post office, train station, tourist information office and a market on Wednesday mornings. There are local opportunities for fishing, diving, cycling, walking and horse riding.
The park is located midway between Quimper and Lorient and ideally situated for exploring beautiful Brittany. The fabulous town and port of Pont Aven is just a short 15 minute drive away –the famous artist Paul Gauguin first arrived here in 1886 fell in love with the town and over the next 12 years he visited many times and created many of his famous works in the countryside around the pretty tidal harbour. Enthusiasts of Gauguin will also want to visit the small Chapel of Tremalo just outside Pont-Aven to see the wooden cross that inspired Gauguin to paint The Yellow Christ, one of his most famous paintings, and is surprisingly similar to the painting. The town has lovely riverside walks, shops and restaurants, museum and numerous art galleries – and a great reputation for its butter biscuits (galettes). The area around Pont-Aven is as much of an attraction as the town itself as the valley around the town is also very picturesque with the river providing a fantastic backdrop to the tree covered slopes.
Carnac is just an hour’s drive from the park and is known throughout the world for its unique rows of ancient standing stones – around 3,000 aligned megaliths dating from 4000BC. The Museum of Prehistory has one of Europe’s finest collections of prehistoric objects that have been unearthed in the area and in the centre of the town is Église St-Cornély, a lovely 17th-century church named after the patron saint of cattle. Carnac-Plage has five sheltered sandy beaches, which are backed by attractive 19th-century villas and pine trees. The 1.2 mile (2km)-long Grande Plage is popular with families as it’s supervised in summer and has two children’s clubs. Légenèse and Ty Bihan are smaller beaches and St-Colomban beach is the place for wind and kite-surfers.
Caravans in the Sun has a full range of mobile homes available which are suitable for this park. We can supply any make and model of mobile home including Delta, Willerby, Pemberton, Victory, ABI, Swift, BK, Regal, Tingdene and IRM to name a few, if your choice is not listed please contact us for an accurate sited price.
