Your holidays by the sea in Mesquer-Quimiac
During your camping stay in South Brittany at Château du Petit Bois, you will have a front row seat to enjoy the 13 km of beaches of the seaside resort of Quimiac and discover the village of Mesquer. A small haven of peace in the heart of the Loire-Atlantique for a superb holiday by the sea with family or friends.
The sea and its beaches at the gates of the campsite
Come and lay your towel on a beach in Quimiac and enjoy the simple pleasures of a holiday in South Brittany. Swimming, beach games, sunbathing, water sports, there will be something for everyone! Lanséria beach near the city centre is spacious and you will easily find a pleasant spot to settle in for a relaxing day. Sorlock beach to the north of the city is also very friendly, and like Lanséria, it has the advantage of being supervised in summer. Other smaller beaches such as Les Épis or Moulin will do perfectly well for those who prefer a more intimate atmosphere. Fishing is also in the spotlight in Mesquer: fishing on foot for shellfish and crustaceans at low tide or angling and surfcasting to discover the region's fish. Don't leave the area without at least once having a sunset with the sea in the background on a beach in Quimiac, a timeless and always magnificent sight.
A 100% natural walk on the Mesquer-Quimiac side
How about an invigorating and gourmet stroll at the Port of Kercabellec, where visitors can enjoy the scenery while enjoying local oysters grown by local oyster farmers. The activity of the port has developed thanks to the production of salt and you will discover the importance of saliculture in this region during your walk through the marshes of Le Mès. Head to Rostu Island and get to know the fauna and flora of the salt marshes. Many birds live in the area, and you can easily recognize (by hearing for the most ornithologists among you) the little egret, the grey heron or the white stilt. Feel free to climb up to the top of the blockhouse at Merquel Point to access the bird observatory. The spectacle of nature will not stop surprising you in Loire-Atlantique.
Gourmet walk in the village of Mesquer
Take advantage of the markets of Mesquer during your camping stay in South Brittany to stock up on provisions and souvenirs! On the program: local products and crafts!
- Bourg de Mesquer: Sunday morning
- Place de Kercabellec: Wednesday morning (July and August)
- Place de l'Orée du Bois in Quimiac: Tuesday and Friday mornings (from June 15 to September 15)
Treat yourself to a gourmet break at the Port café or in one of Mesquer's many restaurants: whether they are called La Vieille Forge, Le Belem, Le Relais Marine or L'Amphore, Le p'tit caboulot, not to mention the oyster hut, Le Skipper and La Yole, you will be spoilt for choice to enjoy local products on the terrace or indoors.
Finally, Mesquer-Quimiac is also the perfect starting point for many places to visit during your camping holidays in Loire-Atlantique: the beach of the Gold Mine in Pénestin, the salt marshes of Guérande, and of course the seaside resorts of La Turballe, Piriac-sur-mer, or even La Baule.
