Camping Brittany

Brittany, although it covers a small area, is very diverse in terms of topography. Facing the Atlantic, the north and west coasts are mostly rocky, while the south, facing the Bay of Biscay, is more sandy and gentler, with more beaches and harbor coves. The landscape is diversified by the Monts d'Arrée mountain range from east to west. For the most part, however, Brittany is an agricultural region, with tourists coming mainly to the Breton coast. An additional magnet attracting holidaymakers is the temperate oceanic climate with slight temperature differences throughout the year. Campsites in France – Brittany are the perfect choice for a warm, lazy holiday.
