Welcome to Brigitte & Pascal
Welcome to Bigouden, the essence of southern Brittany.
Known for its tall lace headdresses, Bigouden also boasts this lovely peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean complete with beautiful sandy beaches, the picturesque fishing ports of Kérity, Saint Guénolé and Le Guilvinec, the towering Eckmühl lighthouse and the Pointe de la Torche headland (a surfers’ paradise). Not to mention its famous galettes and seafood. On the campsite you can also enjoy the heated pool complete with waterslides and games.

The Haliotika fishing discovery centre at Guilvinec with langoustine lasting. Not to mention the Finistère Museum of Prehistory in Penmarc’h, St Guénolé’s Rock, the port at Guilvinec, Kérity and Quimper (25km).
The Eckmühl lighthouse, its granite silhouette rising 65m above the treacherous rocks at Penmarc'h and Saint-Guénolé. Climb it and enjoy the stunning view over the Îles Glénan et and the Île de Sein which, along with its surprisingly ornate stonework, makes it once of the most popular monuments in Finistère (3 km from the campsite). La Pointe de la Torche is a windswept natural peninsula in the heart of Bigouden. In the spring the headland is covered in a carpet of gaily coloured tulips. An ideal destination for hikers and surfers but also for a gentle stroll in the beautiful Breton countryside (3km from the campsite).
30 km of signposted mountain bike trails around Penmarc’h.
From the campsite follow the Route des Vents Solaires to the Pointe du Raz stopping off at Pouldrezic to taste the local galettes washed down with a glass of Kerné cider.
With the waves of the Atlantic pounding down onto the beach of the Pointe de la Torche headland, Les Genêts makes a great base for a water sports holiday. Its owners offer a wide range of water sports activities for all the family including surfing and body boarding, wind and kite surfing, sand yachting and sea kayaking. And if you see yourself more in the role of intrepid explorer than speed king, why not try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding or scuba diving and set out to discover the natural world?
Les Genêts makes the ideal base for exploring the many marvels of Brittany. With its exceptional and unspoiled natural habitats, long sandy beaches, clear green-blue waters and the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean, it is also the perfect destination for anglers. Come and enjoy the calm and beauty of the local coastline with a sea fishing trip from the port at Le Guilvinec.
