Facilities & Activities at Les Mouettes
It’s always a challenge to keep the little ones entertained when you’re on your hols and The Fun Station at Les Mouettes is there to do just that. Daily activities including Join The Circus, United Nations, Missions To Mars (Can I go Mum – Yes as long as your back for tea!), Sports Saturday give you an idea of the sort of supervised time available. Have no doubts – the kids will really enjoy this giving you some of that so hard to find us time.
Swimming wise you’ll not go wrong here either. Three heated outdoor pools (one for adults only for an hour each morning) and a fourth covered heated pool give you lots of choice. With a generous sprinkling of waterslides, larger water chutes, fountains and magic mushrooms the kids will be well entertained all day long. Around the pool are plenty of sun loungers for catching the rays and if that’s too much like hard work head for the spa where there is a sauna, whirlpool and Jacuzzi.
Beyond the pool there is a raft of other things to get involved in at Les Mouettes. Boules (how French is that and it’s BRILLIANT), volleyball, basketball, badminton, soccer, tennis and ping pong (sorry – table tennis) are all available as is pony-trekking. Mini-golf (crazy golf or clock golf – wish they’d make up their mind about what to call it) play parks and a pool room (no, not swimming silly, we’ve already mentioned that, this is the game like snooker only better) are also on offer.
For those wanting to spread their wings there are a number of other things to get involved with. Being so close to the sea you have windsurfing, canoeing, dinghy sailing, kayaking and even scuba diving during high season. While we’re on the subject of outside there are a number of attractions in the area, perhaps the most spectacular is Oceanopolis in Brest some 40 miles away. With four spectacular pavilions you’ll have a child centred yet still interesting day out. Let’s not underestimate how much there is to see and do here. Touch pools, shark tanks and seal pools will keep even the most enquiring mind busy. You can even eat on site in one of the tow restaurants or take away facilities. I can just imagine the kids wanting to come back for seconds and I don’t mean the food either.
Why not visit the local town, Carantec. It’s a small pretty and oh so French little town. Take a morning to wander through the streets. Have a coffee and croissant (they’re NOTHING like the ones you find at home) or perhaps a visit to the local boulangerie to buy freshly baked French bread – it’s the stuff that holiday memories are made of. If you really want to indulge in the French atmosphere get yourself along to St Pol de Leon. This pretty little cathedral town has a great market where the kids can see all manner of wonderful French foodstuffs.
Back in camp, evening entertainment centres around the new bar complex. A large bar with five pool tables where good old karaoke nights are hosted (ear plugs not supplied). We’ve mentioned local markets but if you’d rather there is a mini market on site where you can buy those essential supplies as well as a gift shop for post cards and other holiday essentials.
The camp also has a reception that is fully staffed where they do parlez the old Anglais and where they’ll give you access to WiFi – if you’re desperate enough.
