Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of the camping site Le Ranolien at Perros-Guirec? Photos and description in Eurocamp's brochure look nice, but it's better to get a real person's opinion.
Any info would be very much appreciated! Thanks.
We were recommended this place by my son in law who comes from Brittany. Have a lovely time
In fact, I've already booked for us to go here in August (which I know will be hellishly busy, but we're tied to School Hols). I was looking for reassurance that we weren't headed for the holiday from hell...but it's looking good - thanks for your great replies.
Glad to hear we'll be well catered for, will try the Auberge Restaurant for sure, sounds yum.
Dalyan Princess - do you know if there are any age restrictions on the waterslides? My youngest is a very water-confident 5 year old, but I have a suspicion he won't be allowed on. The others, 9, 11 and 17 are all very good swimmers so no problems for them I think. Thanks for your help.
Sorry as you can see I cant wait to get there.
My main concern is re things to appeal to such a wide variety of ages. It looks as if the kids clubs etc are good and as we like walking - that seems as if it will be OK.
I am about to book - any thoughts guys? Would really appreciate any info or advice.
We're really looking forward to our holiday. Our first time holidaying in France
You brought me to my senses - I rang them and you're right I was very pleasantly surprised.
I sent off a request to Canvas for a quote and am waiting for that , but i really don't think it's gonna beat the Yellohvillage one.
So looks like I'm (almost) sorted.
When are you going guys/ We're gonna be there from 26th August. Couldn't get time off before as it was only decided last week and time off in August gets taken very quickly. Can only get 1 week too which is a pain but the new school term starts on the 3rd or 4th I think. Still there you go.
Looking forward to it, & thanks for your help.
Roll on August
Booked a week at this site with Yellohvillage thanks to your help.
saved an amazing £200 off canvas holidays prices. Very similar accommodation , booking my own ferries, which was £30 cheaper than taking the ferry inclusive price. That will just about cover the personal insurance (with direct travel). I will probably get the AA car cover though, better safe than sorry.
Who's a happy bunny then!!
Ps hopefully we'll see you there Addy , You'll be well into it by then & will know the best places to go & things to do.
I was pleased to hear you saved some money terri, every penny counts. Sorry i'll miss you.
Have fun and let us know how it goes.
Also if you find out any more info from here to then.
The site at Carantec along the coast also has good facilitied, but the !iving accommodation is rather more formal with the mobiles in regular streets - not quite so easy going.
One of the best ways to get there is the (Friday night only) P&O ferry "Pride of Bilbao" a large boat which cruises across from Portsmouth to Cherbourg at a very lazy pace. You leave at 8.00 pm and don't have to leave the ship until around 8.00 am on Saturday as a tresult you get a proper night's sleep - no morning call at 6.00 am and a pleasant run to Perros Guirec. return by P&O from Le Havre ( it may be Brittany Ferries by summer because of the going on between the two companies!) If you stay at the Campanile Hotel in Honfleur that is very pleasant and Honfleur itself very attractive with an easy journey of only a few miles to get the ferry in the afternoon arriving Portsmouth early evening.
All the cabins on Pride of Bilbao have en suite facilities WC wash basin shower. the price is reasonable and you have ample time for a leisurely dinner on board.
5 months to go
This walk everyone talks about i just cant wait
washed down with local cider yum
did you try that mate?
Some excellent trips to take are the boat trips to the "Sept isles", a trip around the islands in the area.I think it was about €17 per head.There's a go karting circuit in plomeur and a must see is the Planetarium which has an English speaking show on wednesdays.
A nearby town with a pretty beach is Tregastel and well worth a visit.However the water park in ranoilen is built from the pink granite rocks in the area and the entire surface is granite.If a child slips on this surface, expect some very sore scratches and abrasions.The crazy golf park is also hewn from the granite and is great for all the family.
Any other info you need, just ask.
