    Hi all

    I know there are 000s of campsites of all types across Brittany and I’ve been trawling websites already, but does anyone on here know of any that cater for or are partcularly suitable for long term stay? We will be looking for somewhere to park up our motorhome and car to use as a base while we look for and buy a property, so it could be months. We wont need many facilities, EHU, somewhere to do laundry, a quiet spacious campsite with some walking areas close by for our doggies, rather than a touristy one. And one that will do a good long term stay rate!  Morbihan preferably but could creep into the other departments too. Thank you 😃

    municipal sites may suit as when I’ve stayed on them before there seemed to be people who were staying for a couple months (I thought this because their caravan/awning area would be fenced in and have potted plants etc around) they’re pretty cheap and fairly quiet as don’t have pools/slides etc.

    They don’t all open year round. I found this web site for Morbihan but can’t give you any advice on them as I’ve never stayed in a camping site in Brittany.

    Thank you both, yes I think that would be the only problem with Municipals, we are likely to be there over the winter so it rules them out.  Fencing and pot plants – yes that might be us! :)

    Most accept animals and small municipal ones can be open all year. Let the mairie know what you are planning. Small municipal and inland is what you need. Le faouet, Baud, Bubry (sadly a bit neglected but lovely). Guemené s/s has a campsite. You are going to find problems over winter during periods of frost as water will be turned off.

    There is a camp site in Loyat, open all year round, We come over and stay for months.

    Very quiet.

    Laundry facilities not brilliant but we used the one in Ploermel or a drive over to Mauron. all good.

    Camping Merlin L’ Enchenteur , 8 Rue Pont Loyat 56800.

    I also can vouch for the last campsite mentioned which is in a very friendly little village. Keith the owner is english and a lovely chap who has been around for a long time and will be able to help advise you well with any questions you may have and probably point you towards some good contacts.

    Another good tip if you were going to stay there is that if you go upto the bar boulangerie owned by claudette opposite the church,she has very good wifi and is good fun.

    Dog walks are many around that campsite too with fishing ponds next to the camping as well as a converted old railway line with walks for about fifty miles as well as upto a big lake just a couple of miles away called lac au duc.

    The nearest town of ploermel about four miles away will cater for most your needs too.

    I could recommend many over night- over weekend camper van park ups around brittany for you too if you wanted to look elsewhere. I know very well  all of Brittany for camping but know morbihan and finistere better than I know the other departments.

    I live in a camper van so am quite experienced at this :-)

    Email me on gerdweller@hotmail.co.uk if you have any questions on certain area’s,either in Brittany or anywhere else in France :-)

    I hope that you find your perfect paradise soon.

    Love and light

    Jamie xx
