Le Balcon de la Baie

Europe France Brittany Ille-et-Vilaine

Quiet woodland camping with sea views over Mont Saint-Michel Bay

For many-a-year, British holidaymakers have flocked across the English Channel to holiday in Brittany, and for those of us planning to spend our French vacation under canvas, there is no shortage of campsites to choose from. Few though can boast pitches that come complete with stunning sea views like this.

Nestled amongst woodland close to the Brittany-Normandy border lies Le Balcon de La Baie. This small, peaceful campsite promises a warm welcome and a picture-postcard setting with views over the beautiful Mont Saint-Michel Bay. The pitches are generously sized and broken up by shrubs and trees which gives you a bit more personal space, as well as offering some shade on a hot summer's day. The grounds are well maintained with pretty flower bushes, trees and plenty of grass, but not overly manicured. Early risers will be rewarded with the intoxicating aroma of freshly baked croissants as the local baker arrives with his daily delivery of bread and pastries.

Facilities cover all the essentials and there are plenty of activities to keep the family entertained, with a playground for little ones, a games room, plus plenty of open green space for a game of badminton or pétanque. Or you can while away the time relaxing around (or cooling off in, as may well be the case) the heated swimming pool, which is connected to a shallower, child-friendly paddling pool.

There's plenty to explore off-site too in this historic area. The iconic island commune of Mont St-Michel is 25 minutes in one direction while the ancient walled port city of Saint-Malo is a similar distance the other way. For a day at the beach, the numerous sandy stretches of northern Brittany are close by, including the genteel resort of Dinard, a favourite haunt of British visitors since the 19th century.

As evening approaches we recommend you head back to camp, crack open a cold beer or pour yourself a Pernod, and enjoy the sun setting over the sparkling waters of the bay beyond.
