Campsite in Pays Bigouden
Camping holidays at the heart of Bigouden culture
In Pays Bigouden, there's much more than just Breton bonnets and 'Le Loup, Le Renard et La Belette' (famous Breton song). This region takes up part of southern Finistère and its capital is Pont l'Abbé. It has an important history, influenced by its inhabitants’ links with the sea, historic conflicts and the traditions of a culture that is still thriving today.
The name "bigouden" comes from the Breton word "bigoudenn", the famous white headdress worn by women. This is, in fact, the most representative element of the culture.
Pays Bigouden follows Audierne Bay around the Brittany coast. It forms superb beaches lined with pine forests, and only comes to a halt at the famous pointe de la Torche, a few minutes away from the campsite. Spending a holiday in Pays Bigouden means an encounter with the ocean and all the riches it brings. At the far western point of the area is the pointe de Penmarch and its famous Eckmühl lighthouse, standing proudly, and a precious guide for sailors.
During your stay, don't hesitate to visit the superb towns around the campsite, such as Plomeur, Loctudy or Tréguennec!
