Campsites in Cotes d’Armor are some of the most popular in Brittany and it’s not hard to see why.
The region of Cotes d’Armor can be found on the north coast of Brittany and boasts some of the most magical and picturesque coastline that France has to offer with rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, fishing villages and ports all in abundance.
A trip to the Cote de Granite Rose, more famously translated as the Pink Granite Coast, is a must. Streching out for in excess of 30km the coastline has become a geological mystery and popular tourist destination due to it being lined with a vast array of pink coloured sand and rock formations.
Slightly further to the east you can find another well named part of the Breton coast Cote d’Emeraude which takes it’s name from the spectacular colours of the sea below. Here you will find some of the best beaches in the region with plenty of golden sand and rock pools waiting to be explored.
Along the many headlands you can find other awe inspiring places to visit such as Cap Erquy and Cap Frehel. With spectacular cliffs, coves and moorland, walkers and nature lovers will find this the perfect place to stop for lunch.
For those looking to explore the regions history, look no further than a trip to Fort La Latte which can be found to the east of Cap Frehal. Perched on the cliffs overlooking the Cote d’Emeraude it is one of the most fantastic castles to be found on the Breton coast.
Although Cotes d’Armor is most famous for the resorts, towns and villages along it’s coastline such as Lannion, Tregastel, Perros Guirec, Saint Cast Le Guildo, Erquy, Saint Brieuc and Dinan. It’s important to remember that to complement the fantastic coastline you can also find a whole host of medieval villages, towns and places to visit if you travel further inland.
The 13th century Chateau Hunaudaye can be found hidden within the countryside a short distance to the east of Lamballe which was once a highly important medieval town. GuinGamp holds the Saint Loup festival in August each year a Breton dance and international festival which also involves other Celtic groups from around the globe.
