“Brittany fantastic but campsite awful.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

Our family spent 9 nights at this campsite with Canvas Holidays, and the staff could not have been less helpful and treated us as an inconvenience. Luckily there was a very helpful Rep at the counter next to Canvas (on the left!). As we kept getting reminded, we were not there at high season yet we struggled to get our 2 kids booked on many of the activities on offer. The indoor pool was very crowded and one particular lady at the stables was very rude. On our first night we ate at the pizza restaurant and witnessed the waitress drop apple torte on the floor, pick it up then put it back in the fridge. The tent and equipment were very tired, the beds very uncomfortable and the bedding was not appropriate for the climate, ie we were very cold every night and this was not rectified. We were in regimented rows, and not the open feel as advertised. The facilities were disgusting with people using the dish/clothes washing sinks to brush their teeth, men using the ladies showers, much to my 9 year old daughter's surprise, and don't believe the silence rule after 11.00pm. We were kept awake til well after 2.00am by a mixed group of French teenagers sited next to the family tents. The campsite is advertised as one of the best in France.......!
Sadly it was the worst holiday we have ever had (and the kids agree!) and it was a relief to escape into the beautiful surroundings of Brittany and to finally leave for good!
We gave Canvas Holidays our feedback, which was much more descriptive, but we have not heard back from them. So much for customer care!!!

Stayed July 2011, travelled with family

We had a really great week's holiday here. The kids loved it with plenty of activities for them. The park feels very safe and secure so you can really relax.

Stayed at this site with Canvas Holidays at the end of August/ beginning of September.

Firstly this area of France is really beautiful with picturesque towns such as Dol-De-Bretagne, Dinan, and St Malo relatively nearby.

The site itself is really big and this did mean we had a bit of a walk from our mobile home to the shop/reception but this was quite pleasant. The facilities were also pretty good, with nice (but busy) swimming pools, free wifi in the bar, tennis courts, table tennis, pedalos, golf, most things you can think of. The only downside to this is that you have to pay extra for many things.

Overall, a nice site with helpful staff, especially great for families with children.

If you would like to visit a 'foreign' country like France and know that you are on holiday in said foreign country, then do not stay here. It is like staying in a suburb of London. Not only are nearly all of the guests from the UK, but the restaurants cater to UK expectations (not French-quality cuisine) and even the convenience store on the site carries primarily UK food. It was like having a nightmare where I paid for a holiday to get away, and then did not go anywhere.

That said, the kiddies liked the swimming pools and felt it was worth it for those alone.I beg to differ.
