  • Description


    Come to our beautiful little campsite! We are a small traditional campsite set along both banks of the river Trieux in a wooded walley near the town on Guingamp. We are a french/British family with two boy 11 and 12. We like to meet people from all different cultures and learn about them.

    Here, you can walk around, cycle, take the bus or be dropped of somewere. You are very welcome to make use of our canoes, kayaks and mountain bikes to explore the river and beautiful surrounding countryside. The site is also great for fishing, climbing and nature spotting (kingfishers, otters, owls, bats, deer, red squirrels etc). We are only a half hour from the sea and you may wish to visit the well known Pink Granite Coast.
