canvas patrol tentFIXED CENTRE WEEK (day rides of 5-75 miles a day - very easy or more difficult - it’s up to you)

For full details please go to the fixed-centre camping page

This route uses our Fixed Centre tents - note that our Gite holidays provide the same routes etc for a little extra.

This comes with all equipment and a wide range of routes - some described here. The campsite at Gouarec is our base and is one of the best that we use. It's worth noting that the Gite is only 200m from the campsite for those who want the advantages of the village but a solid roof over their heads... In this holiday you camp the whole week there so you never need carry your camping equipment. As a centre for exploring Gouarec has several advantages. The campsite is large and well equipped, but for some inexplicable reason never becomes crowded. It has lots of space and a play area for children. The town has a couple of good supermarkets and various other shops and restaurants, including two that charge about £8 for a huge lunch time meal including wine! It’s biggest asset is that the campsite is right on the banks of the Nantes-Brest canal, which has a well surfaced tow path just made for easy safe cycling. We will give you a set of day rides to explore the canal and the surrounding countryside, villages, markets etc. we guarantee you will never be short of things to do! For example, within easy riding are Bon Repos, The Forge Des Salles, the covered tombs at Liscuis, the Lac de Guerledan (beaches, swimming etc), the Buddist monestry and the Forest de Quenican . In addition to this the campsite also does canoe hire, riding is just 3 kms away, and there are extensive, marked walks through the forest that comes right to the edge of Gouarec. Strongly recommended for families with small children.
