Set on the bank of the Nantes-Brest canal, Gouarec campsite is one of the prettiest in Brittany. Not only is it right on the canal towpath, but also at the junction with the V6 cyclepath – both being part of the Velodyssee/Eurovelo 1 cycle route and has been the base for our cycling holiday company Breton Bikes for over 25 years (when it was known as Camping Tost Aven).
The campsite itself is large (8 acres for only 100 emplacements) and grassy with a real feeling of an old-fashioned 'campsite' rather than a parking lot for mobile-homes and chalets. To this end we have installed vintage caravans, canvas tents and shepherd's huts for accommodation a little out of the ordinary.
Set on an island, bounded by the canal and the river D'Oree the campsite is perfect for relaxed canoeing, fishing or just watching the wildlife. Obviously many people will wish to cycle in the area and the campsite maintains a large fleet of cycles and tandems which are ideal for exploring the area.
Gouarec itself is a small Breton village which has all you might need – three restaurants, a small supermarket, baker, banks, garage, post-office and large swimming-pool – in fact all you need for your holiday and all within 500m of the campsite – you really don't need a car.
In the immediate area you'll find lots to do, and for those wanting to explore wider afield the fact that Gouarec is the geographical centre of Brittany means that almost every part of the region is within a 90 minute drive.
