The Owner Says
After long days out at the beach, on the coastal paths or on your private deck, meet in the evening and enjoy the full comfort of this camping experience. This is not camping, this is glamping!
Our Safari Tents are a stone's throw away from the beach and have high quality beds and warm blankets for you to get a real cosy night’s sleep - or take the blankets outside on your private deck surrounded by oak trees and look at the stars. Electricity is provided. The outdoor kitchen and large sitting area on the deck provide the ideal space to enjoy an unspoiled landscape and share those happy moments together, combining the pleasure of camping in the wild with added bonus of a sundeck.
Bot-Conan has two bath houses, located only a few metres away from the tents and blends beautifully into the landscape thanks to their green roofs and wooden panels. They are equipped with flushing toilets, hot power showers, washbasins and outdoor dishes and laundry sinks. Bath houses are maintained several times a day so they remain spotless. After a swim in the sea, you will find these hot power showers a delight.
We want you to enjoy this pristine environment so the site is car free and complimentary bikes are provided. We are located in the beautiful baie de la Forêt where you can find great fishing, sailing and outdoor activities. We are close to the charming village of Beg-Meil and its local market, nice crêperies, good restaurants (as bistro Chez Hubert) and beautiful beaches.

Bot-Conan is located in the beautiful bay of Baie de la Forêt, where outdoor activities come thick and fast. Here are a couple of suggestions to get you started. Overlooking La Foret-Fouesnant bay, Cornouaille Golf Club (0033 298 569709) is a challenging, well maintained golf course set upon the picturesque Atlantic coast. Home to plenty of wildlife including egrets, swans, herons, geese and ducks, Cornouaille is the oldest golf course in southern Brittany. The 18th century clubhouse is a converted manor house that offers meals, snacks, and a friendly bar where you can enjoy a post-round drink. Concarneau, a likeable fishing port, is only a short drive away. This charming walled town makes its living from the fishing industry, and catches more than 100,000 tonnes of tuna every year! The Musee de la Peche (0033 298 971020) is an interesting little museum that gives an educational introduction to how fisheries operate. Make sure you head outside and explore the engine room, galley, and bedrooms of the old trawler.
Food & Drink
For cider lovers, the annual 'Fete des Pommiers' (Festival of the Apple Trees) takes place in July and features music, dancing and plentiful amounts of the celebrated brew. Bot-Conan Lodge is also close to the quaint village of Beg Meil which has a lovely local market, creperies, and good choice of restaurants. Bistrot Chez Hubert (0033 298 949804) is a cosy little restaurant with a big atmosphere. The high quality menu is varied, with the seafood being particularly tasty. There are no onsite catering options, however local produce can be sourced if requested and a pub is soon to open on the farm directly next door.
