Small, simple campsites in Brittany
The probably most important attraction of Brittany is the coast. As a peninsula, the department has a very long coastline. The northern and western coastline is mostly rocky and rugged, with sandwiched beaches. The coast is somewhat more moderate on the south side of the area.
Along the coast you will also find most of the sights. On the north side you will find the beautiful pink granite rocks (around the place Ploumanac'h). And don't forget Saint Malo, an imposing fortified city whose walls rise invincibly.
Brittany is dotted with prehistoric sights, but in the Carnac area on the south coast is one of the most famous and largest groups of menhirs in the world. It is very impressive to see so many megaliths collected. If you are interested, you can see more about it at the Musée de Préhistoire de Carnac.

The area even has one of the largest concentrations of campsites in all of France. The fans of small, relatively simple campsites will find below a list of more than sixty campsites, all with a maximum of fifty camping sites.
