The Owner Says
Set in a beautiful area of the campsite, these pre-pitched safari tents offer a glamping alternative at the campsite for those travelling light – ideally suited for groups or families of up to four people.
Each safari tent features a 27m²x8m² covered terrace, two bedrooms: one with a double bed or two single beds and one with single bunk beds (pillows and blankets provided). Bedding sheets are not included, please hire these as an additional option or bring your own.
The tent also has a main living/dining area with is a kitchen complete with gas stove, fridge, microwave and plenty of crockery and utensils for up to four people. The dining area opens out onto the wooden decking, where in hot weather you can roll up parts of the canvas walls too, allowing the breeze to flow refreshingly through. The terrace comes kitted out with wooden table and chairs, allowing for al fresco dining at any time of day. The new maintained shower blocks are a short stroll away and offer baby facilities.
The campsite, Flower Camping Les Gênets, is situated on the western coast of Brittany, near the old harbour town of Guilvinec, with long sandy beaches less than a 10 minute cycle ride away.
Les Genêts has a wealth of activities to keep everyone entertained with two swimming pools (one covered and one outside), water park with slides and aqua activities. There is also a volleyball pitch, table tennis, table football, a boules area and a children's playground. There is a snack bar on site – open daily – serving ice creams, cold drinks, bread, pastries, confectionary and newspapers. There is a tourist information point on site, with free wifi and you can rent bikes, so you can enjoy the 50km coastline on the campsites doorstep!
For water sports enthusiasts head to la Pointe de la Torche – within easy range – offering surfing, wind-surfing, sea kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and scuba diving to name but a few, or just enjoy relaxing on the long sandy beach. Brittany is famed for its heritage and the local villages are littered with ancient churches – 15th, 16th and 17th century – and old town squares, while the lighthouse at Phare d’Eckmühl is a good spot to start, 5km from the campsite.
Being by the sea there are some good seafood restaurants in Guilvinec to explore, so you can sample some of the local delicacies caught that day, particularly picturesque local ports include Kerity, St Guénolé and Le Guilvinec (where, each weekday at 5pm, the fishing boats bring in their catch).
With the proximity to this beautiful coastline and a wealth of activities on site, makes Camping Les Genêts an ideal choice for families wanting to explore this popular stretch of Brittany.
