With a picture as perfect as this, it’s time to book a pitch for your tent or campervan, or a fully-equipped mobile home for a holiday with every comfort! Here in its rich green seaside setting your campsite makes the ideal base for a multitude of outdoor activities: tennis, aquagym or pétanque, enjoy your favourite sport without moderation! And since holidays and bathing always go hand in hand, whatever the weather you’ll be able to enjoy boundless fun in the water, thanks to the covered and heated swimming pool.
Visit Pont-Aven with the family
Between the delicious galettes, the biscuits for which Pont-Aven is renowned, sunny walks along the banks of the Aven and endless bathing in the campsite water park, the kids are going to be kept pretty busy during their holiday in the Finistère!
After having explored the town centre in Pont-Aven, follow the river with its 15 mills to admire some of southern Brittany’s most gorgeous beaches. And it isn’t hard to guess which will be the family’s firm favourite as soon as you discover it. The sublime Raguenez beach! Justly re-named “Tahiti Beach” by the locals, its lagoons have all the beauty of a Polynesian paradise. Playing games on the beach, snorkelling, topping up your tan or enjoying a picnic in the sunshine, you’ll never be short of reasons to come and delight in its exceptional panorama!
Visit Pont-Aven as a couple
In Pont-Aven the landscape is even more beautiful when you explore it together, just the two of you! So why not treat yourselves to a romantic boat trip on the River Aven? Down at the harbour, hop aboard the motor launch and admire the scenery as it slips gently past. From châteaux to cottages, their gardens brimming with flowers, it’s hardly surprising the artists found Pont-Aven so inspiring!
On your return to dry land, walk in the footsteps of Gauguin, founder of the famous Pont-Aven school. Museums, galleries, biscuit-makers and fascinating little boutiques line the narrow streets and guide your route. Perfect to find a wonderful souvenir of Pont-Aven to take back with you when you return to the campsite!
