Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • A short walk to some great bars, restaurants and shops

  • See the yachts at the port of La Trinité-sur-Mer

  • Kids will love the pony rides available on parc

Brittany certainly isn’t short of magnificent beaches. So when we tell you that Des Menhirs is next to one of the best, you’ll know you’re in for a real treat.

Des Menhirs features an excellent swimming pool complex, with a giant water slide and water chute, and five tempting pools. Kids can also go for pony rides just off the parc, while you can hire bikes to cycle around the peninsula, work out in the gym, or unwind in the Jacuzzi. The parc is also just a short stroll from the bustling seaside resort of Carnac Plage, which offers a wide choice of water sports, restaurants and boutiques.

      We have visited many camp sites in France and Les Menhirs is undoubtedly the best. The camp itself offers almost all the any one can wish for, but in addition it is sited within easy walking distance of the magnificent beach, supermarket and local shops, plus the twice-weekly market.
