Grass Camping Pitch

Europe France Brittany Finistère Camping de la Pointe

  • Sleeps 5 (max 4 adults, 3 children)
Located in beautiful surroundings outside the picturesque town of Châteaulin, close to a tree-lined bend of the canalised River Aulne. The pitches are separated by hedges and flowers and are suitable for tents and campervans with awnings (not suitable for large caravans and motorhomes).

The Owner Says

We aim to offer every camper a warm personal welcome and a spacious pitch in natural surroundings. Campers are welcome to wander in the woods or sit and relax in our garden, maybe with a chilled beer or glass of wine.

Set in a conifer-lined valley at the foot of a deciduous forest, the site was recently incorporated within the borders of the Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique. A stream runs down one side of the site, and the pitches are separated by hedges and flowers, they are suitable for tents and campervans with awnings but not suitable for large caravans and motorhomes . There's also a spacious play area for kids, a chill-out room, outdoor furniture for lounging on and a handy fridge-freezer.

If you fancy having a BBQ, they are available for hire, and there’s a daily boulangerie delivery as well as fresh eggs and vegetables from the kitchen garden.
There's a large wash block with showers, sinks and laundry wash-rooms. Next door there is an information room and book exchange (free wi-fi, too!).
The communal room has a table-tennis table and space enough to relax on a rainy day when you can’t get out.
Along with the woodland, the canal path is ideal for a walking, running, cycling or fishing (the canal is a grade-II salmon stream), but adventure-sports junkies won’t need to travel far either. Make sure you visit Châteaulin, a stroll along the river from the site, is a lovely, floral riverside town, good for a weekly market and supermarkets, restaurants, tennis, and heated indoor swimming pool. There is a centre there that hires out kayaks, canoes and pedalos for use on the calm waters of the River Aulne, which forms part of the 200 miles (315 km) of the Brest–Nantes canal.
Any additional extras such a bike hire/BBQ/Firepits can be purchased on arrival with campsite
