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.
