Camping site Le Helles is situated some 300 m away from one of the most beautiful beaches in Brittany. This quiet three-star camping site is well maintained and has all amenities required for a lovely family holiday. Campers come here to enjoy peace and quiet, great walking and cycling routes and the glorious beach. You can hear the murmur of the sea from your camping pitch. The nearby Sainte-Marine is a picturesque harbour town.
Neat camping site
The level pitches on grassy fields are neatly laid out and separated from each other by low hedges. In low season you can pick your own spot. In high season you will mainly find young French families at Le Helles, as well as a few German and British guests. Le Helles focuses primarily on touring campers, but you will also find nice rental mobile homes here.
From the camping site you can hear the murmur of the sea. The reason for this is that you are only 300 m away from the beach. A forest path behind the gate at the back of the camping site leads you to the sea within five minutes. The clean beach, aptly called the ‘Rivièra of Brittany', consists of fine white sand. An ideal spot for swimming and watching the sailing boats go by.
Fun in the water
Le Helles has a large, heated indoor swimming pool with glass sliding walls. There is also a beautiful outdoor pool with surrounding sundeck as well as a heated toddler pool. The snack bar with its sociable terrace is located adjacent to the outdoor swimming pool.
Out into the open air
At the reception you will find comprehensive information about the region, sights and activities. The owners are familiar with the attractions and are happy to give you advice. The area lends itself particularly well to wonderful walks and cycle tours.

This is a lovely open site run by pleasant and helpful staff. The pitches are spacious, though not shady.
The toilet facilities are good (bring your own loo roll).
The beach is only 5mins walk via the back gate, and a mice beach it is. The town of Sainte Marine is 10-15 mins walk and has a lovely harbour with restaurants and cafés overlooking. The market, though small, is comprehensive and supplies lovely local meats, etc. A small foot ferry sails back and forth between the harbour and the town of Benodet.
As we travel as a couple, we cannot comment on the family aspect, but for us it wad great and we intend to return.
