News update: Tuesday April 14th 2020

Hello everyone,
During lockdown, Philippe and I have been continuing our preparations for the season and working out on the site with the hope that we can welcome our customers as usual. 
Our normal opening date for this year was May 8th, but as of last night, we have been informed that we are now still in lockdown until May 11th and as yet we have no date given for when bars, restaurants, hotels and campings can re-open.
We will update you as soon as we can on this, but in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have concerning your reservations.

Stay safe and fingers crossed we will see you all in the summer as planned.

Claire and Philippe

Thursday April 23rd:

Thank you for all your messages and well wishes, it really helps during this difficult time.
The site is now all ready for opening and we are just waiting to hear when that can be. We will update you as soon as we know, but are still hoping we can welcome you in the summer.

A little bit of good news, our lockdown will be eased slightly  from May 11th. Unfortunately we still do not have any idea as to when we can open, but the government will review this in early June. We will let you know as soon as we can .

Wednesday May 13th

Good news!
Depending on the situation at the time, borders should open on June 15th and there are no quarantine restrictions for British coming to France.
We expect to have an idea around June 2nd for when we can open, so fingers crossed you will be able to enjoy your holidays here as planned.

Saturday May 23rd
The gites are open! Can't wait to welcome you, just need borders to open and the quarantine rule to be relaxed. We should have news on the possibility of the  campsite opening soon.

Thursday May 28th
FANTASTIC NEWS AT LAST!! The campsite can open from June 2nd with of course strict hygiene measures in place.
EU borders should open on June 15th so we can't wait to welcome you all for your holidays. Please do get in touch if you would like to know more on the measures we will have in place for your safety.
Due to the uncertainty of Covid 19, we will happily take a new reservation, but will not take deposits for the moment.

Sunday June 7th
We opened on June 2nd as did restaurants, bars, beaches and tourist attractions. Even though Brittany has been one of the least affected areas and are in the green zone, there are strict safety measures in place everywhere you go. We feel safe here and appreciate the wide open spaces and clean air.
So far so good and it is still looking very likely that the EU borders will open on June 15th, so you will be able to come and enjoy your holiday and relax after all the madness of the last few months.
We have obviously had an enormous amount of cancellations both in the gites and on the campsite. If you made a cancellation and now feel that it is safe to come, get in touch, there is every chance your gite or pitch is still vacant. Or, tell your friends and family about us, we could do with a helping hand this year! 

Saturday June 13th
EU borders will open on Monday! ( with the exception of Spain which will be soon)
This includes the UK , but for the moment travellers arriving from the UK are asked/invited to undertake a 14 day quarantine.
Please note, this is "voluntary" and will be scrapped as soon as the UK take down their 14 day quarantine.,  We really hope for everyone's holiday plans, will be sooner rather than later.
So the site is open, the borders will be open on Monday, now we just need you to come and relax chez nous!

Tuesday July 14th
It seems that some of my posts have been lost as the site moved server last week, but for our guests that had to cancel this year, we are taking bookings for next year, so if you haven't already done so, let us know your dates as soon as possible.

Sunday November 1st.
What a strange season 2020 was! 
We are taking bookings for 2021. If you have a credit note from this year, please do get in touch and book your gite or camping pitch.
Contact us for Covid 19 updates.
For peace of mind, thought I would add a couple of this years reviews, you can find them and more on Google maps:

Really nice small family camping ! Very quiet and relaxing. Toilet building super clean and practical, great location and they have cute goats! Owners also really friendly and helpful 😀 thank you !!

Excellent campsite. Very spacious well maintained pitches and very friendly owners. Lots of activities for kids: a nice playground, pool, green space to play and some goats and chicken. Very important: the toilet facilities are spotless with antibacterial soaps everywhere. We had a lovely stay here with our 1 and 5 year old.
Camping agréable, confortable et propre. Nous nous tenions à l'arrière sur un beau terrain où les enfants peuvent jouer et courir ensemble. Les lieux sont spacieux, les sanitaires sont propres et soignés. Le pâturage de chèvre est un grand succès auprès des enfants, tous les restes de baguette et d'écorces de fruits peuvent être présentés à ces joyeux amis. Le terrain de jeu est simple mais magnifiquement situé. Beaucoup de choix d'endroits, de soleil, d'ombre, à l'abri ou tout simplement en détournant les yeux, presque tout est possible. Le matin, vous pourrez déguster de savoureux croissants et baguettes à la réception. Les propriétaires sont extrêmement sympathiques. Des vacances comme il se doit!
(Avis d'origine) Fijne, gezellige, schone camping. Wij stonden achterin op een mooi veld waar de kinderen lekker samen kunnen spelen en rennen. Plaatsen zijn ruim, sanitair is keurig verzorgd en schoon. De geitenweide is een grote hit onder de kinderen, alle restjes stokbrood en fruitschillen mogen worden opgevoerd aan deze vrolijke vrienden. Het speeltuintje is eenvoudig, maar mooi gelegen. Voldoende keuze in plaatsen, zon, schaduw, beschut of juist vrij wegkijken, bijna alles kan. In de ochtend haal je lekkere croissants en stokbroodjes bij de receptie. Eigenaren zijn extreem vriendelijk. Vakantie zoals het moet zijn!

Excellent place! The owners are super friendly and helpful. The facilities are good. The hamburgers are great. They know the area well and are a great help when looking for something to do in the area. The landscape is surprising. Good area for a quick run as well. Absolutely recommended. Hope to visit this place again in the future.
Excellent endroit! Les propriétaires sont super sympas et serviables. Les installations sont bonnes. Les hamburgers sont super. Ils connaissent bien la région et sont d'une grande aide lorsqu'ils cherchent quelque chose à faire dans la région. Le paysage est surprenant. Bon endroit pour une course rapide aussi. Absolument recommandé. J'espère visiter à nouveau cet endroit à l'avenir.

Superb campsite! Small clean perfectly quiet and secluded. Not far from Brittany coast or other historic towns. Owners Claire and Phillipe very friendly, helpful and informative. Fresh bread and bakes delivered in the morning daily (must pre order) is a must. Heat outdoor pool. 😊 Stayed in one of the Gites which was 👌. Highly recommend if you want a quiet clean place to stay.
(Traduit par Google) Superbe camping! Petit propre parfaitement calme et isolé. Non loin de la côte bretonne ou d'autres villes historiques. Les propriétaires Claire et Phillipe sont très sympathiques, serviables et instructifs. Du pain frais et des pâtisseries livrés le matin tous les jours (doit pré-commander) est un must. Chauffer la piscine extérieure. 😊 J'ai séjourné dans l'un des gîtes qui était 👌. Je le recommande vivement si vous voulez un endroit calme et propre.

We are obviously hoping that there will be no restrictions this summer, but just for your peace of mind when booking the gites or campsite....

In the event that we are unable to open the gites or campsite this summer due to French government regulations in relation to Covid, or that the French borders are closed, we will issue a credit note for the amount of your deposit paid. This is valid for 18 months from the due date of your holiday. 
Please note that if you are unable to, or do not wish to travel due to any other Covid related issues, the deposit is non- refundable and we strongly recommend taking out insurance at the time of booking  to cover this eventuality. 

Dans le cas où nous pourrions pas ouvrir en raison de la réglementation gouvernementale française liée à la Covid-19 ou si les frontières françaises seraient fermées, nous émettrons un avoir correspondant au montant des acomptes déjà versés. Ce dernier sera valable 18 mois à compter de la date d’échéance de votre séjour.
Merci de bien prendre en note que si vous ne pouvez pas, ou ne souhaitez pas, voyager pour toute autre raison liée à la Covid, votre acompte ne sera pas remboursé. Ainsi, nous vous recommandons fortement de souscire à une assurance annulation au moment de votre réservation afin de couvrir cette éventualité.

3rd May 2021:
We are pleased to announce that we can open as planned on May 8th, with a couple of restrictions that will hopefully be lifted very soon: 

The Pool/bar/terrace are closed due to Covid 19, until new Government instruction 
(anticipated opening of the above facilities is May 19th depending on the health situation at the time)**
**Piscine/bar/terrace fermée par arrêté gouvernemental jusqu’à nouvel ordre ( ré-ouverture anticipé 19 mai sous réserve de l’évolution des contraintes sanitaires)
June 4th 2021:
All facilities are now open and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you!
