Camping Port de Plaisance is part of the Yelloh! Village group of camping villages that are located in France, Spain and Portugal.
Camping Port de Plaisance is located in Southern Brittanny in the small village Benodet.
We recommend this camping if you're planning to visit the southern part of Brittanny by car. It's generally a little warmer & little dryer in this part of Brittanny, making it ideal for a summer holiday with (small) kids.
The campsite is located 1km from the beach of Bénodet so you'll likely take the car or bus to visit the beach (or beaches nearby).
Types of accomodation
There are different types of accomodation available for rent: mobile homes, gites & cottages. In this review we focus on the mobile home only.
3 different classes of cottages are available: 2 flowers, 3 flowers and the “Premium” cottages.
We stayed in the 4 person Cottage Keltia which has 3 flowers. It comes with the following ammenities:
- Living room + kitchen: plates & dishes, 4 ring gas cooker, refrigerator, freezer, microwave /grill, coffee machine, electric water cooker. There is no dishwasher though.
- Bathroom with sink and shower
- Separate toilet
- 1 bedroom double bed for 2 (1.60 × 1.90m)
- 1 bedroom 2 single beds 0.80 × 1.90) where 1 is a bunk bed (0.70 x 1.90m)
- Heating convectors in all rooms
- Half-covered wooden deck with garden furniture, 2 sun loungers, parasol, barbecue and drying rack
The bedrooms are all pretty small, but that was to be expected. After all we were out all day enjoying Brittany, so we didn't really have a claustrophobic feeling.
Because the Keltia cottage terrace is half covered you can sit outside even if it's a little bit raining (as you know can happen in Brittany :)).
The premium cottages come with these extra's included:
- a dishwasher, a Nespresso device and bread roaster.
- sun loungers on the roof of the mobile home, with the possibility to sleep under the stars
- beds made up on arrival, towels provided, end of stay cleaning included, WiFi access
Pool, restaurant and child facilities
There are quite a few pools in Port de Plaisance. Outside there is a toddler pool with a small slider. Right beside it, the main pool can be found. (it's not superbig, but pretty okay). There is a third pool outside which is where two sliders end.
For kids, there are some bouncy castles and a sandy playground which you can also see on the above picture.
The indoor pool can also be seen at the top of the picture above. It's actually the biggest pool of all; as Bretagne doesn't have the hottest weather it's a must.
Nearby there is a takeaway restaurant with the usual take-away fare you can expect: pizza, french fries, chicken. For those looking for something more refined or healthy head in to the resto ‘Le Prad'
Le Petit Delire
With kids, you should definitely go to Le Petit Delire in Ploemel. It has the largest collection of outdoor inflatable bouncycastles I have ever seen. Some of these are pretty high and only for older children, while others are perfectly fine for toddlers and smaller children.
A pony ride is also possible (not included in ticket price).
New in 2014 there is the adventure trail where you can walk between 5 tree houses.
There is an indoor play area, but we would recommend to go on a dry or sunny day as the outside playground is much larger & fun.
Site naturel de la Torche / La Baie D'Audierne
A windy place, with a lot of surfers trying to catch the waves, that's for sure! The beach, the dunes and the weather looked wild when we were there. Recommended!
Iles de Glénan
No this picture was not taken in the Caribbean 🙂 This is Iles de Glénan, which is located a 1h boat trip from Bénodet. You can buy tickets via the camping for the ferry – they are not cheap but well worth the money.
The islands are protected, so the only buildings on the island date from the sixties. These now host a windsurf school and a little restaurant. The beaches and water are very beautiful and are perfect for a daytrip.
Make sure you bring a parasol because there is no shadow and you can get burnt quickly. If you want to eat in the restaurant you should make a reservation beforehand, or like we did, just bring your picknick. (make sure to take all your garbage with you afterwards!)
Who doesn't know the Carnac megaliths? It would be strange not to visit them when travelling in Brittany. With kids you could combine them with a half day at Carnac beach.
