Selected because this site enjoys an exceptional location on the edge of a beautiful sandy beach by the Mer Blanche and the nearby Iles Glénan. A superb aqua complex and direct access to the beach are its main attractions. Holidaymakers of all nationalities to return year after year. The site is run to an exceptionally high standard and is renowned for its warm welcoming atmosphere. The enthusiasm of the site owners is infectious. The short walk to the centre of Benodet is a great asset as is the superb aqua complex covering a total area of 2,700m². The site has a wonderful flowery entrance including many colourful hydrangeas and there are no mobile homes. In spite of its size, it is not a noisy site and does not have a commercial atmosphere.

Wonderful campsite, power was lost after a storm but monies were returned to guests and you could move to other pitches which still had electric.On arrival you were offered a choice of amps I paid for 10 amps and had no problem. There did appear to be some complaining old farts,But don;t you always get these, its the only thing that makes them happy ha ha!!!!Wash blocks were spotless and a cleaner on duty 12 hrs a day. Showers cost 60 cents a time but me and wife shared as hot water ran for about 10 mins and was super hot. Will return again some day. SPOT ON WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have been holidaying at Camping du Letty for over 10 years and have always thoroughly enjoyed our time their and never thought of going anywhere else ,until this year. The addition of the indoor pool and outdoor water park has certainly altered the appeal of this site but we hope this is something that can be remedied by the owners. The site is far busier and it appears that the infrastructure Is not able to cope with the increase in guests. The electricity failed for a large proportion of the site for 2 days and we were only getting 180 - 191 volts most days,which was not enough to drive our fridge. The internet wifi which now covers the whole site was sporadic but this may be fixed now. The onsite market didn't have enough staff to cover the busy periods,resulting in large queues of unhappy guests which was only made worse by French guests pushing in to the front of the queue and getting what appeared to be a preferential service. There are now far too many loud & unruly British families who do not know how to behave properly on a campsite and need to be educated by the site management team on what is expected of them.The new take away operators were found by many to be rude and surly and not as courteous as the previous operators. The site has always been very well cared for and tidy but a change to the recycling of rubbish( this process needs to be reviewed) has caused some lazy guests to leave their rubbish where they pleased. I feel that the increase in guests has caught the management out and the ground working staff cannot cope in keeping the site and toilet blocks as clean and tidy as they used to in previous years. I and many of our friends truly hope that all of these issues are due to the increase in guests and they can be ironed out for next year.

A really lovely site ideal for us with a motorhome, right on the beach and easy walking and cycling distance from the centre of Benodet. Will be absolutely perfect when they have a swimming pool on site as well. Highly recommended.
