The surroundings

Camping Des Bruyères is located in the north-eastern part of the unique Finistère department, a few hundred meters from the picturesque village of Le Cloître-Saint-Thégonnec. On the south side, the village borders on an extensive and diverse nature park, the Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique. Fifteen kilometers to the north is the historic coastal town of Morlaix.

Finistère is a beautiful department in Brittany. It juts far into the sea and is the westernmost tip of France. There is no other part of Brittany that offers as much wealth as Finistère – it is culturally and architecturally unique. Apart from its own style of churches, it has its own language, Breton, which is still heard in many of the villages, where village festivals are still held with traditional music and dance, costumed processions, crêpes and cider. There are many wonderful museums in the region, including the wolf museum in our own village of Le Cloître. Finistère is famous for its varied gardens, flowery towns and rounds. For the most beautiful nature of Finistère you have to visit the Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique.


is ​​located in one of the most beautiful bays in Brittany, located in the north of Finistère. You can enjoy high cliffs, rocky islands, numerous sailing ships and a beautiful view.

You can view the “ville d’art et d’historie” from the high viaduct that characterizes Morlaix. We see a lively city with charming alleys, markets and terraces between sixteenth-century half-timbered houses. Looking the other way, we see the yachts and the beautiful bay of Morlaix that invites you to explore the coastal routes. If you like seafood, the coast has many beautiful beaches where you can find shellfish or their shells. There are also plenty of swimming and water sports beaches!

The Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique is a beautiful natural park that covers a large part of Finistère. The park has an enormous biodiversity and you can enjoy various landscapes here. In the middle of the area, a massive mountain range divides the Finistère department in two. These are the Monts d’Arrée. An impressive and almost surreal landscape where heaths and rocky peaks alternate up to the horizon. In the nature park you can also find the lake Réservoir de Saint-Michel. You can walk around the lake or take a refreshing dip in the water. The park has a total of more than 500 kilometers of paths, so it is recommended to explore the area on foot or by bicycle.
