    I wrote up our last trip to Brittany here: http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/forum/threads/two-go-to-france.115155/

    We didn't go to the west coast though I have done it on a push bike. It is a bit bleak in places but lots to see everywhere in Brittany. For example the massive churches in tiny villages, paid for with wool I seem to recall. A day trip on foot to Ouessant would be interesting but you would need to rent bikes to see the island and it's famous lighthouses.

    We particularly enjoyed the Morbihan region. Good walking and more old stones than you can shake a stick at.

    Hi.
    We have stayed at this site,check it out,on the ACSI web site.
    ACSI Camping Les Plages Beg-Leguer,near Lannion.
    There are two sections of the site and you get a choice,one in the trees,the other in sections of about 6 units in each,surrounded bt hedges 6' plus. An indoor pool,outdoor pool,Restaurant,laundry. You can walk down to the big beach,where there is a restaurant,or drive down,however,if you drive down in the m/home,you are restricted to the first car park,this overlooks the beach and is a very good viewing platform.
    Fishing... While we were there,several people walked out of the site,straight across the road with fishing rods,about 5 mins walk will bring you to a little car park on your left,just before this on your right,there are a couple of footpaths that lead down a track,(One Tarmac wide enough for a narrow vehicle) I think this is where they fish from the little beach,or off the rocks. CAUTION ! It was said,that further along,some people ran around...(In the NUDE!)
    Would we go again ? Like a shot,an Irish couple we met there,have been again. You are just around the corner from the "Pink granite beaches". So,check it out.Wild Camping ?cannot see why not,just follow the rules,enjoy.

    PS. We did 7nights for 6.(We called in for 1 LOL) It appears in the book,this is still on offer

    Carnac was good. Park in the large car park near the exhibition centre and take the train around the town and site. Then cross the road and walk as far as you like.

    Auray just off the N16 was very nice down by the river

    Saite-Anne De Auray was superb. magnificent Basilica and war cemetary
