Camping in Carnac France
The campsite in Carnac is located in the north of France, however it will feel as though you are on a sunny beach holiday on the Côte d'Azur. Carnac lies in the south of Brittany, close to the Atlantic coast and on the warm Gulf of Morbihan. You can stand bare foot in the sand as soon as you leave the campsite! The pretty towns of Auray and Lorient are close to Carnac. You can also travel to the end of the peninsula to visit the town of Gâvres, which is almost completely surrounded by water.
Camping in Carnac has many advantages. The beach is just around the corner and there are good restaurants, shops and a long boulevard which runs alongside the harbour. You can enjoy playing golf on the golf course or take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool at the campsite. If you don't feel like cooking, make it easy for yourself and throw a hamburger on the barbecue or visit the local pizzeria!

The area around Carnac is diverse. You can visit picturesque harbour towns, such as La Trinité-sur-Mer and the peninsula of Quiberon, from the campsite. The inviting bays and white sandy beaches of Brittany are the perfect place to take a dip or build a sandcastle. Brittany has everything you need for a great family holiday.
- Forêt Adrenaline
At this park at the heart of the forest there are 210 activities which children of all ages can enjoy to release some energy. There are also 13 tracks laid out high in the trees so that the whole family can enjoy climbing and clambering.
Carnac is famous for the many menhirs which are positioned in straight lines or circles around the town. It is unknown how the stones came to be there. However, what is well known, is that you should definitely take a look at them during your holiday!
There is nothing better than to discover the coastline of Brittany by boat and look up at the rugged cliffs. A few islands lie just off the coast of Carnac, which you can visit, such as Belle-Île-en-Mer and the peninsular harbour of Sauzon.
A refreshing dip
Diving off the coast of Brittany is a fun activity for the whole family. The south of Brittany has a Mediterranean feel to it due to the warm climate and the wealth of flora and fauna, both on land and below the surface. The most beautiful diving area in southern Brittany lies in the bay between Île de Groix and Lorient. You can explore shipwrecks and the fascinating relief of the seabed. Don't worry if you don't have a diving certificate, as there are a number of diving schools in Lorient that will be pleased to teach you.
Knights and ladies of Brittany
The walled town of Vannes, where time has stood still, lies close to Carnac. The mediaeval towers and colourful houses of Vannes take you back to the time of knights on horseback and ladies in sumptuous dresses. You can enter the town gates and explore the narrow streets of the historic centre. For that extra medieval feel it is best to visit the town on a Wednesday, when the weekly market is in full swing. You can enjoy a drink or bite to eat afterwards on one of the terraces by the harbour, or have a pizza at Villa Romana, which has a great view of the town walls..
You don't have to travel to the south of France to enjoy a sunny summer holiday. The south of Brittany is far enough! The weather in Carnac is always pleasant in the summer because of the Gulf Stream and temperatures are usually around 20 degrees.
