Tree House Accommodation
Each Tree House has been cleverly constructed around the trunk of the tree and is around 4-5 metres from the ground. Access is via a wooden spiral staircase. It's split into two room separated by a terrace. The main room has a double bed and a single bed, while the slightly smaller second room has three single beds. A spacious decked terrace with table and chairs means you can relax and watch the world go by from your lofty position. The main room has a dry compost toilet, though if you prefer normal flush loos there are plenty in the main campsite grounds.
In addition, you are also provide with a Frontier Tent on-parc for the duration of your stay, so, if you wish you can always come back down to earth. Each tent is fully equipped with self catering equipment, as well as enough room to sleep 6. (Please note - the tents are pitched on the nearest pitches to the Tree Houses. This can be up to 750m away).
The Parc and Facilities
Your first sight of the magnificent 18-hole golf course confirms that this is no ordinary parc. Set in 250 acres of château parkland and woods, this parc is extremely popular with our families, particularly teenagers, and becomes very lively in high season. Children will love the waterpark with its four-lane waterslide and the newly built indoor pool complex and outdoor wave pool, great fun for all the family to enjoy. You will also find a lake where pedalos can be hired or you can relax and enjoy some fishing. There is plenty of entertainment all season long, and you can choose from either the cosy bar with terrace or restaurant to relax in during the evening.
How to get there
St Malo is the nearest port from where you can catch the train to Dol de Bretagne. It's then 6k to the campsite.
