Le Camping Village La Plage Holiday Park

South of Brest is the small yachting port of Trinite-sur-Mer and it’s beautifully laid out camping site called La Plage. Small and peaceful, it is set in the grounds of a Breton farmhouse and has direct access to the beach. This makes it an ideal spot for family holidays. If you’re looking for a full on, keep them occupied 100% of the time type of holiday La Plage is probably not for you. With its quiet, more rural pace of life it’s a perfect destination for a relaxing family holiday where you get to do things together as a family.

You have a really good choice of accommodation at the site. You can go under canvass with a two or three bedroomed tent sleeping either 4 or 6. Tents come with comfortable sleeping arrangements and enough kitchen equipment and space to allow you to feed the little ones. Whilst it’s not exactly glamping it’s not Boy Scout roughing it either and with new canvass interiors for all tents for 2012 these tents provide an ideal base for an outdoors holiday.

Chalets at la Plage are two bedroomed and have all the mod cons (great phrase that, thanks Mum) you’ll need to look after your family on holiday. Oven, grill, gas hob, microwave and full sized fridge freezer along with hair dryers, stereo iPods mosquito nets and blackout blinds in bedrooms make this a real home from holiday home.

Facilities & Activities at La Plage

Perhaps the best possible thing you could say about La Plage is the beach. It really is within a walking distance and the soft white sand is perfect for young children to play on. The sea is shallow which makes swimming much safer as well. During peak season you can also hire canoes and have canoeing and diving lessons. Do you think Jacques Cousteau learned here as well?

There are two pools on site here, both outdoor and perfect for letting the kids have that little extra freedom that holidays demand. The first pool does have water chutes and slides and even though they are not particularly steep, don’t take my word for it you might want to check them out yourself. There is an on-site activity team who organise various daytime and evening activities to keep kids and grownups alike amused. It’s a small program, you know the sort of thing, small enough to be a special part of your holiday but not so large as to be too intrusive.

On site there is plenty to keep you occupied. Tennis (two courts), table tennis and mini-golf are all available. Now on the subject of golf, just across the road from the camp you’ll find billiard golf. (I’ve never heard of that one so check it out and drop me a line if you don’t mind). There’s a TV room and games room with pinball and pool tables as well. You can also hire bikes (adult and children bikes are available with helmets as well) so you can spread your wings a little further without resorting to the car.

Outside of the park is the world of rural France, markets, cafes and restaurants that is just perfect for introducing the kids to different ways of living. Just take them to the local boulangerie and watch their faces as they choose from the amazing range of cakes and pastries on offer. You can also visit a wide variety of other attractions including Chateau de Suscinio which was once home to the Dukes of Brittany, Parc Branfere, where they can see all sorts of wild animals and Aquarium de Vannes which does what it says on this tin (50 different Tanks worth actually).

A short walk, via the beach finds a small restaurant that is traditional, family oriented in style and that serves regional specialities. There is also a bar with a nautical theme that is open between early May and mid September. You can also get take away pizzas, chicken, frites (you really can’t call them chips in France) and seafood. Of course the best thing about self catering is the chance to prepare local food and with a good market nearby you’re all set catering wise .

    Camping de la Plage in La Trinite-sur Mer is a cosy and friendly campsite. The local area is very nice a little busier than I expected but a great sea-side resort, the old harbour of St.Goustan is nice day trip. The site itself opens directly onto a long sandy beach, you’ve also got the pool onsite as well which offer swimming lessons for the young children.

    The sanitary facilities were spotless and the staff friendly. Overall a very nice campsite, we took our eldest son (14) who was a little bored towards the end of our trip the site is more suited for young families and older couples, I would happily return.
