The 4* Camping Domaine de Kerlann campsite is situated just a tad east of the medieval town of Concarneau, a major fishing port in southern Brittany. This is a large and lively campsite, or holiday village, close to the ancient village of Pont Aven and is surrounded by woodland and scenery and the wonderful beaches of this part of Brittany are within easy reach. In a few words, this is an ideal family holiday destination.
Because Brittany has the most coastline of any region of France there is ample opportunity for you to explore beaches and coves which are dotted about, ancient rivers, Kerlann itself which was a favourite haunt of the painter Gauguin, and small villages which exude charm.
Not that you really need to leave your campsite for fun and games as we have listed the facilities which the Domaine de Kerlann has and, you will see for yourself that there is plenty to keep you amused and busy on site.
But offsite we sincerely recommend a visit to Concarneau, one of the most photographed towns in Brittany and the 3rd most important fishing port in the whole of France. If you get up early enough you will be able to buy fish straight from the boat, and it doesn’t come fresher than that!
Quimper, on the banks of the River Oder, is a “must see” town is the oldest city in all Brittany where you will find charming cobbled streets, pretty boulevards and a slow pace of life.

If you like markets, and who doesn’t like markets on holiday, then you could do worse than ask your campsite rep where and when they are, but please note that most of them start very early and pack up just after noon each day.
