Camping De L’Atlantique Reviews

Sunelia L’Atlantique Holiday Park

Located in Western Brittany, just south of Brest is the village of Beg-Maeil and L’Atlantique campsite. This site is located perfectly for a holiday with younger children as it is closer to the channel ports which means a shorter journey. The park benefits from being close to some spectacular beaches and has a lively atmosphere and plenty of tranquil countryside if you fancy some peace and quiet. There is a helpful reception where English is spoken and three shops where you’ll be able to get most of your holiday “stuff”.

L’Atlantique opens between 5th May and 8th September and has 432 pitches for you to choose between. You can stay in one of the camps newly refurbished tents. The tents have new internal and external canvasses for 2012 which means you will be able to unzip the sides on your living space and really open your tent out. You can choose between two and three bedrooms and you will have a separate kitchen and living space. Delia would be able to rustle up a decent meal on the gas rings and grill provided so you’ll be able to as well. You can also extend your kitchen repertoire when you use the charcoal barbecue.

If canvass is not for you then you can stay in one of the sites many chalets. Again two or three bedrooms these home from homes have fully fitted kitchens (apart from dishwashers – Dad, over to you) and come with outside space and patio furniture. There is also an option to have decking if you want – Fancy Nancy!

Facilities & Activities at L’Atlantique

There are five different children’s clubs here catering for different ages and different types of activity. Whether it’s Pirate Mayhem, Busy Bugs or plain old swimming lessons the kids will be occupied (you may need to be there with the little ones but staff will do all the work) and Mum and Dad will be able to take some time out.

There is an on-site restaurant where you can enjoy French, regional specialities as well as a good children’s menu which means a family meal out can be a holiday highlight. Daytime eats can be had at the sandwich bar, take away and creperie (they are French specialities you know). These foodie favourites open at different times during the summer. For serious grown up entertainment there is a bar overlooking the pool where they schedule evening entertainment during the high season (more karaoke than Moulin Rouge I think though).

With four pools (big small, square round, black white, family kiddies – spot the joke) you will be spoiled for choice but either way there are plenty of loungers to help you relax in the Brittany sun. Of course there are more sporty things to do including tennis, table tennis, football, basketball, beach volleyball, gymnasium and archery. You can also take part in boules which is the Fenchest thing you’ll ever do.

You can hire bikes at L’Atlantique and don’t forget the direct access to some of Frances best beaches. In the local area you can visit Beg-Meil – why not take in a trip to the market as well. Brittany is crammed full of attractions including L’Aquarium Audierne, Oceanopolis (one or the other not both might be a good idea), Jardins de Rospice (lovely gardens) and the Musee du Cidre de Bretagne (cider museum – hic). There really are stacks of things to do if you need a break from messing around in the pool or on the beach.

    It wasn’t our best holiday but by no means the worst. The site can a little tricky to find so make sure you have the right directions or even better a sat nav.

    The site itself is nice with a decent pool area, although it’s smaller than I expected. Contrary to some reviews I read I found the staff to be very friendly.

    The kids loved the slides, personally I thought some were a little ugly. The playground was also popular with them.

    Our accommodation (mobile) was adequate but make sure you leave it in good condition otherwise you will be fined. I never experienced this but I did see one dispute.

    Overall a nice holiday park with great potential.
