Camping Le Deffay ****

General information

In the southern part of Brittany you will find Camping Le Deffay, between the village of Sainte-Reine-de-Bretagne and the small town of Pontchâteau. The camping site is situated on the grounds of an 18th century castle in a green setting. In the old outbuildings of this castle you will find a snack bar and the camping site shop.

Camping between tall trees or by the fish pond

The spacious camping pitches are located between old tall trees and allow you to opt for a pitch with either lots of or somewhat less shade. The pitches around the small lake are sunnier and have a view of the water abounding with fish. In addition to camping pitches, camping site Le Deffay also has rental accommodation (mobile homes, chalets and bungalows). The accommodation units near the lake are generously spaced.

Covered or rather not?

There is a heated swimming pool with a toddler pool of which the roof is retractable, if so wished. There is a special chair to get into the pool for guests who require assistance to enter the water. Next to the swimming pool is a solarium where you can enjoy the sun in warm weather.

Pedal boating on the lake

There are opportunities on camping site Le Deffay to play volleyball, tennis and pétanque. There are trampolines and games for children. You can fish in the lake, but you may also choose to go pedal boating. Surrounding the lake is a fitness track, called: Body Boomer. Outside the camping site are pathways which are ideal for jogging.

Detail information about this campsite

R. De Bruyckere "Beautiful and very quiet campsite, there is choice between marked pitches under the trees or a more sunny place around a small lake where one can enjoy free water cycling or fishing for carp or eel. Near the national park "de Briëre", wetland nature reserve with numerous bird species."

Travelling party: Couple

We are a retired couple who found this little gem on our way back from the Loire Valley. The site was very easy to find and near Pontchateau, not far off our route to Roscoff. We arrived on 19th June, the site was very quiet and we were allowed to pitch our caravan anywhere we chose except for a few fully serviced pitches. We picked an amazing spot right next to the lake and spent hours watching the coypu family, kingfishers and other wildlife. The weather was pretty hot but no mosquitos!
The toilet/shower blocks were always clean and tidy but could do with a coat of paint in the showers. The swimming pool was a godsend in the heat but maybe could do with the roof being pulled back in hot weather. The staff were perfectly friendly, fresh bread etc. daily to pre-order from reception. We only used the restaurant once, we popped in on our last night for steak & chips. Simple, tasty food at a reasonable price.
We will definitely stay here again the next time we\'re in this area.
It was so lovely that we stayed for 9 nights instead of the 5 we had planned!
Thank you.
