DOL-DE-BRETAGNE, Château des Ormes

Brittany

Selected because this very large Castels site offers a huge range of activities for young and old alike. It is set in the lush parkland of a beautiful 16th century château with 3 lakes for fishing or canoeing and its own golf course. You cannot fail to be impressed by the magnificent setting and the beauty of the surrounding grounds. There is an enormous range of on-site activities and is a perfect spot for an active family both during the day and in the evening.It is a very busy camp site, as there are several British tour operators with their own mobile homes and tents. It is a fabulously vibrant spot even in the low season and therefore not recommended for those seeking a quiet French ambiance.

A superb setting in the grounds of a magnificent chateau. Loads of different activities, really great for children of all ages. Good choice for golfers and horse riding enthusiasts. Plenty of distractions for everybody. Some of the toilet blocks could be better.
