Luxurious comfort a pebble's throw from the Atlantic surf
While there are many reasons that campers consistently return to Brittany, one is undeniably the glorious beaches. From the stunning cliff-tops at Perros-Guirec, to the opulent north coast of Dinard, Brittany has a seemingly endless stretch of majestic, unpredictable coastline. While there's no doubting the region's epic quality, we know of a tranquil, secluded cove where soft, white sands meet the azure waters of the sea. A place that's the very essence of rest and relaxation. Interested? We thought as much. Welcome to Bot-Conan Lodge.
Just a flip-flop away from the bay, this über luxurious new glampsite boasts some of the region's most enviable ocean vistas. But this is not the crashing Atlantic swells of maritime lore. At Bot-Conan's secret beach, a meditative calm pervades – kids are safe to paddle and lovers free to contemplate the endless seascape before them. Pure bliss.
After a day's frolicking in the temperate waves, cataloguing the local wildlife, or simply lazing on the beach with a good book, retiring to your safari-lodge dwellings is simply wonderful. As well as safari lodges, three ‘atoll’ tents are available, combining the pleasure of camping with the luxury of your very own sun deck and outdoor kitchen. Whatever accommodation you choose, you’re sure to enjoy this beautiful, Breton bolthole.
Welcoming host Arnaud has ensured the site blends perfectly into the local landscape – even the two bath-houses integrate seamlessly with their green roofs and wooden facades.
Although it’s tough, do try and drag yourself away, the local area is spectacular. Brittany’s deep, mysterious interior is there to be explored – from Arthurian woodland (the fabled Brocéliande), canals, and rivers that are ideal for hiking, cycling or cruising lazily. For something more adrenaline-fuelled, surf junkies can get their fix at La Torche some 30 minutes away.
As well as a shared Celtic heritage (not to mention landscape) with their Cornish cousins across the water, the Breton's share a love for cider. Fouesnant is the spiritual home of Breton cidre. It's generously endowed with fertile orchards which produce the very best brews. If you're staying in July, the annual 'Fete des Pommiers' (Festival of the Apple Trees) is a must for all connoisseurs.

Camping you say? No, this is GLAMPING! Beds have comfortable mattresses with duvets, linens and pillows are provided. We know you want to ‘rough it’, but up to a certain point: electricity is provided as well as Wi-Fi, if you wish to stay connected! A small fridge will also keep your provisions cool and fresh.
The site is fenced so children can play safely in the surrounding grounds and the sea is kid-friendly (no currents or big waves, shallow depth). High chairs and baby cots are available on request.Barbecue pit and private wooden picnic tables will enhance this outdoor family experience. Bikes, canoe and paddle boards are available on site.
Bot-Conan has two bath houses, located only few meters far from the tents they completely fit into the environment thanks to their green roofs and wood 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 always stay spotless. After a swim in the sea, you will find this hot shower incredibly delightful!
The clubhouse is a warm and cosy place to read in front of a wood fire or to have a snack.
We want you to enjoy this pristine environment: the site is car free and complimentary bikes are provided.
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 and 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.
