Les Druides camp site, Carnac, Brittany
When we arrive at the camp site we selected the night before [over a bottle of wine] we find we don’t actually like the look of it [musta been a bad bottle of wine????] and carry on to Les Druides in Carnac, a site that was only opened the day before we arrived.
It’s on the posh side of camping with a proper reception office and a very nice receptionist [who spoke excellent English] who asked us to go and find a pitch we like prior to booking in. It’s €1 extra per dog but showers are free and the facilities are the best we’ve had by far [calming music in the shower block? Check! Corian worksurfaces throughout? Check! Proper hair driers in the (unisex) wash room? Check!]. There are only another 3 motorhomes on site and we are the first British guests of the year [hoorah] and although we think the site is perfectly laid out [barrier detection on both sides and a back gate that can be accessed with a digital key] it does feel a little clinical… personally we prefer the *rough around the edges* experiences. But what the heck – it’s nice to have a little luxury for one day ^-^
We take the dogs for a walk along another beautiful sandy beach just 500 m from the camp site and find it’s probably the busiest little beach resort we’ve been to so far. Turns out there had been a regatta during the day and the place looks like wealthy French people rent out their beautiful summer houses during season. As for now – most of the houses are still boarded up waiting for some great summer weather to arrive.
After the walk we put on some washing [€4 for a 5kg load and €5 for a one hour drier cycle which unfortunately left some of the washing still a little damp], then settle in for the night with Breton sausages and bargain Bourdeaux. Just in time it seems as during the evening and over night the weather closes in and it begins to rain.
We are now also starting to look into what vet to use for our return to Great Britain on Saturday.
