Indian summer camping: come and enjoy the warmth of September in Brittany!
Fall is fast approaching and you would like to extend summer? Take advantage of the sunny days of September to go camping in Brittany. The landscapes, the calm, the tranquility, the price... you have everything to gain!
Why go out of season?
The approach of autumn does not discourage campers from coming to Brittany. Quite the contrary. Young couples, students, retirees or globe-trotters, more and more of you are choosing Brittany to enjoy the Indian summer.
The main motivation is first of all financial. The prices of pitches and tourist accommodation (mobile homes, cottages, chalets, bungalows, caravans, etc.) are on average 20% to 40% cheaper than in the middle of August.
While everyone has returned to school or work, most campsites in Brittany offer stays at very attractive prices with more availability in the choice of destination, whether in Finistère, Côtes-d'Armor, Morbihan, Ille-et-Vilaine or Loire Atlantique. The same applies to the price of some tourist activities and visits, but also to restaurants and transport, which show a significant drop after the summer. Enough to indulge yourself without exploding your holiday budget.
Leaving out of season also means more flexibility in the organisation of your stay: free arrival and departure day (booking from Saturday to Saturday is no longer mandatory), special weekend package, overnight rental.... Let your desires run wild!
Another advantage: the calm of the late season! After the summer, there are fewer people on the roads and on site. Tourist highlights are less crowded, queues are almost non-existent and "locals" are much more available than in high season.
What to do in Brittany in September?
After summer, Brittany is still very sunny and the temperatures are mild. The opportunity to visit, without hurrying, the region's emblematic sites such as the Pointe du Raz in Finistère, the alignments of Carnac, the Gulf of Morbihan and the bay of Quiberon, the Cap d'Erquy in the Côtes-d'Armor or the legendary Brocéliande forest.
As for cultural events, the programme promises to be copious with major events not to be missed.
Until the end of September, summer is an extension of the Festival de Photo de La Gacilly, a charming village of craftsmen in the heart of Morbihan. Another highlight of the new school year is the European Heritage Days, which open the doors of secret places usually closed to the public.
Film lovers will not miss the Dinard British Film Festival which awards the Golden Hitchcock to the best film of the selection every year.
And in October, go to Saint-Malo for the Quai des Bulles festival, the second comic book festival in France after Angoulême. An opportunity for the Bedevores to meet their favourite cartoonists!
