In the region of Pont-Aven, near Concarneau, Névez is a little coastal resort where the natural landscape has been preserved. The natural environment is the prime asset of this little bit of heaven in south Brittany.
Long sandy beaches alternate with tiny coves to the great delight of children. Turquoise water, wild bays, little harbours nestling at the head of a wide valley, every step brings a new delight in this landscape sculpted by the sea.
"Le Camping les Raguenes Plage international" is the premier campsite and the premier four-star campsite in Névez, founded in 1966 by Madame Guyader, a pioneer in open-air accommodation.
From the very start, this famous local figure found a way to meet the needs of lovers of seaside holidays. With the professionalism of its welcome and the quality of its accommodation, the campsite has preserved all the charm and generosity of its Breton soul. Like the wild headland it stands on, the site has stood aloof from the ravages of mass tourism.
"This is the spirit of camping by the sea" at the Raguenes Plage camp and caravan site! You receive a warm personal welcome. Whether a newcomer or a client for the last three generations, you are part of the family.
A welcome that is infectious, encouraging you to talk to the other holidaymakers; regular visitors will be glad to share with you their knowledge of the campsite and the region.
The staff, always attentive, will add to the pleasure of your stay by treating you not as a consumer but a cherished client. A continuing policy which only costs a smile and naturally encourages visitors to respect the place and each other.
The campsite is located in a calm and quiet tourist area. Its wooded grounds contains many species of flowers. A private footpath leads you and your children directly and safely to the broad Raguenez beach, just 300m away. This beach is on the southern edge of the campsite. To the west, other beaches are easily accessible. The sea is ideal for gathering shellfish and sailing. It looks out to the islands of Glénan, Groix, Verte and to the Raguénez peninsula, accessible at low tide. Boats can be launched from a slipway and moorings are available (apply at the town hall).
This little "Tahiti" in Cornouaille has been a delight to successive generations of campers who enjoy family holidays and long days lazing on the beach.
But its enchanting setting is not the only raison to explain the long-lasting success of the establishment.
