A few words about...
...the campsite, the accommodation, the facilities and a few thoughts about the local area. You can click on any of the links underlined for more detailed information.
Camping du Quinquis (pronounced Kan-Keese) is located in the small seaside village of Le Pouldu, which is in the commune of Clohars-Carnoet in the southwest corner of the Department of Finistere, Brittany. Le Pouldu is about 15 kms north of Lorient and 10kms west of the medieval town of Quimperle.
The campsite is classified as 3 stars and offers accommodation in 2 and 3 bedroom mobile homes. We also have excellent camping and touring facilities. The facilities at Quinquis include 3 swimming pools, a superbly run children's club and a highly recommended takeaway and bar.
The surrounding area is very typically Breton and to many of our visitors it is reminiscent of the countryside and coastline of Pembrokeshire in Wales and Cornwall. This area of Brittany is, in fact, known locally as Le Pays de Cornouaille (the country of Cornwall) reflecting both the historical links of the Celtic nations and the current rich mixture of culture and activities in music, dance, language and customs.
The similarities with Wales and Cornwall, however, do not extend to the pace of life, the number of cars on the roads or the cost of dining out en famille. So many visitors to the area comment on the ease of getting around, the relaxed pace of the day and above all, the natural beauty of the local area. Being within such easy reach of the western channel ports also helps.
With regard to how visitors feel about the campsite itself, the majority of our feedback in previous years highlighted the uncommercialised nature of the site, the mature woodland setting, the friendliness of the staff and the informal atmosphere of Camping du Quinquis.
We think that with the location of such a peaceful and tranquil campsite, in an area of truly outstanding natural beauty, close to so many beaches and family activities, this little corner of France really is a great place for a holiday.
Alternatively, if you are thinking about spending more time than just a holiday in France you may like to explore the possibility of mobile home ownership. We usually have a good selection of pre-owned mobiles for sale or we can also help you buy a brand new holiday home to site here at Camping du Quinquis.
