If first impressions are anything to go by, then we were looking forward to this stay from the beginning. As you drive off the ferry in Roscoff, the beautiful French countryside stretches out in front of you. Les Mouettes - Yelloh Camping Village was only 17KM from the port so it was great not to have to drive too much on the right hand side. Especially when you are getting used to the idea.
The camp site itself is beautiful and well laid out with good use of shrubs and plants. It overlooks a small beach. The camp site reception staff were very welcoming.
As we had booked via Eurocamp, we then had to go to the Eurocamp reception to collect our keys. We arrived at 12pm local time but the Eurocamp reception is closed from 10am to 3pm. We did not get into our accommodation until nearly 4pm. The kids were frustrated by this stage, especially as it was very hot that day. That said, once we did get in to our accommodation, it was bright, clean and nicely positioned so that we were not completely overlooked by our neighbours. The Eurocamp staff check in with you most days to see if you have any questions and let you know what activities are on that day. The Eurocamp and Yelloh staff were really great with the kids and they really enjoyed each day.
You can book directly with Yelloh and it may be cheaper. However, by booking through Eurocamp, we could avail of the activities provided by both the Yelloh and Eurocamp teams. The facilities are good and the outdoor pool is great fun, albeit a bit cold in early June. The camp site is very family friendly and nice and quiet at night.
We would definitely recommend Les Mouettes for a relaxing holiday.
Tip: Bring duvets or your own blankets as the blankets that are provided are scratchy woollen one and not comfortable.
