Motorhome adventure in western France

A camping trip from Brittany to Poitou-Charentes

France, a country as diverse as its cheese, offers travelers an impressive range of cultural, historical and scenic attractions. It is the ideal destination for motorhome enthusiasts looking for freedom and the feeling of being unbound. With scenic roads leading through changing landscapes, from the rolling hills of the hinterland to the breathtaking stretches of coastline, touring by motorhome is one of the best ways to discover the local treasures and hidden gems.

The route we present to you takes you to selected campsites of the Vacances André Trigano brand, which are known for their quality and excellent location. They allow you to explore both bustling cities and tranquil natural wonders while still feeling the heart of the French way of life.

Let yourself be enchanted by the beauty of France and gather unforgettable impressions as you travel from one destination to the next.

You start your trip at Camping Saint Grégoire in Servon, a quiet campsite that offers you the ideal starting point for the famous Mont-Saint-Michel, which you should definitely visit. Mont-Saint-Michel, an island with a majestic medieval abbey, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is known for its picturesque beauty and impressive tides.

If you continue west to Camping Trezmalaouen in Plonévez-Porzay, you should stop to experience the rugged coastline at the Pointe du Raz and take time to visit Quimper. This city is a jewel of Brittany and invites you to take a relaxing stroll with its rich history, winding alleyways and the magnificent Saint-Corentin Cathedral.

The next destination on your route is Camping Poulmic in Bénodet, from where you can explore the fortified town of Concarneau. The walled old town, the Ville Close, and the lively harbor atmosphere are an impressive testimony to the past. After these cultural impressions, the thalassotherapy center in Bénodet offers the perfect opportunity for a break and well-deserved relaxation.

Your voyage of discovery then takes you to the Penn Mar campsite in Baden, which serves as a springboard for visits to the stone alleys of Carnac, whose mysterious past still fascinates today. A boat tour through the picturesque Gulf of Morbihan should be on every itinerary if you want to experience the small islands and the surrounding nature up close.

Finally, you reach the Domaine de Montcalm campsite in Les Mathes, which is surrounded by breathtaking scenery and suggests a visit to the characteristic harbor town of La Rochelle with its historic towers and maritime charm. The Île d’Oléron beckons with a bike tour and its oyster fields, which invite you to enjoy authentic culinary delights. Before ending your trip, we recommend marveling at the Dune du Pilat, which impresses with its enormous height and panoramic views, and making a detour to Bordeaux to taste some of the world’s best wines directly at their place of origin.
