Bot-Conan Lodge Glamping
Europe France Brittany Finistère
While there are many reasons that campers consistently return to Brittany, one is undeniably the glorious beaches. From the stunning cliff-tops at Perros-Guirec, to the opulent north coast of Dinard, Brittany has a seemingly endless stretch of majestic, unpredictable coastline.
While there's no doubting the region's epic quality, we know of a tranquil, secluded cove where soft, white sands meet the azure waters of the sea. A place that's the very essence of rest and relaxation. Interested? We thought as much. Welcome to Bot-Conan Lodge.
Just a flip-flop away from the bay, this über luxurious new glampsite boasts some of the region's most enviable ocean vistas. But this is not the crashing Atlantic swells of maritime lore. At Bot-Conan's secret beach, a meditative calm pervades – kids are safe to paddle and lovers free to contemplate the endless seascape before them. Pure bliss.
After a day's frolicking in the temperate waves, cataloguing the local wildlife, or simply lazing on the beach with a good book, retiring to your safari-lodge dwellings is simply wonderful. As well as safari lodges, three ‘atoll’ tents are available, combining the pleasure of camping with the luxury of your very own sun deck and outdoor kitchen. Whatever accommodation you choose, you’re sure to enjoy this beautiful, Breton bolthole.
Welcoming host Arnaud has ensured the site blends perfectly into the local landscape – even the two bath-houses integrate seamlessly with their green roofs and wooden facades.
Although it’s tough, do try and drag yourself away, the local area is spectacular. Brittany’s deep, mysterious interior is there to be explored – from Arthurian woodland (the fabled Brocéliande), canals, and rivers that are ideal for hiking, cycling or cruising lazily. For something more adrenaline-fuelled, surf junkies can get their fix at La Torche some 30 minutes away.
As well as a shared Celtic heritage (not to mention landscape) with their Cornish cousins across the water, the Breton's share a love for cider. Fouesnant is the spiritual home of Breton cidre. It's generously endowed with fertile orchards which produce the very best brews. If you're staying in July, the annual 'Fete des Pommiers' (Festival of the Apple Trees) is a must for all connoisseurs.
The Owner Says

The site is fenced so children can play safely in the surrounding grounds and the sea is kid-friendly (no currents or big waves, shallow depth). High chairs and baby cots are available on request.Barbecue pit and private wooden picnic tables will enhance this outdoor family experience. Bikes, canoe and paddle boards are available on site.

Our perfect place
What a great place where 4 O.A.Ps spent a week in September. Despite the weather not being at its best, the warmth of Arnaud and his daughter's welcome really helped us settle in and enjoy our first experience of Glamping. Bear in mind that Don, who is an active 85 year old (normally a 5 star hotel type!), was in his element dealing with the log burner. Surprisingly none of us used the 'zip wire' , although I was very tempted but being the driver thought better of it! I did, however, have the privilege of being the first person to use the newly installed SAUNA. All the facilities were excellent and the location truly exceptional.
Have just returned from a fabulous stay at Bot Conan and it was every bit as wonderful as they say. The location is unbeatable and given we had a very un Brittany spell of glorious weather we spent the entire time exploring their amazing beaches. Arnaud was a welcoming host and our two families had a great time. If you like bbqs on the beach, cycling, trekking across the coast and kayaking to secluded bays this is the site for you.
