Does anyone know of good campsites close to the town of St Malo? Thanks!
There are plenty of suggestions if you google. Is there anything specific that you want in a camping? Young people? Swimming pool? Or more quiet?
OK, you wrote me and said you want:
"cheap campsite that's not far from town and suitable for adults. When I google I just got lots of family style places with pools."
Try the options at the ST Malo tourist office website.
Or contact them. The website is in English.
For distances, use www.viamichelin.com.
The closest campsite to St. Malo is on the Cité d'Aleth overlooking the harbour, but in summertime it's rather overrun with young students. Otherwise the nearest is the "Camping du Petit bois" in St. Jouan, about 6/7 km from centre of town. Another one is in Paramé about 6 km from centre. You don't say if you have a car,kids or when you want to come so difficult to give a realistic answer.
That indeed was my problem too. Not being able to answer more specifically for lack of information.
Thanks for your replies. I checked out the tourist office website you suggested - thanks for that, it was very helpful. I'll be going with my friends who are in their 20s and 30s without kids. Also will be going in May.
Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.
you're welcome :-)
Sorry to dig up a really old topic, but I have pretty much the same question. The Cité d'Aleth sounds ideal for me. My question is, can I book online? I am having trouble finding out for myself mainly because I understand almost no French, but partly because the websites I've found so far haven't been particularly helpful anyway.
Does anyone even know if there's even any need to book in advance. I'll be alone and staying for one night in my own tent on June 18th. Could I just turn up that evening and pay for a pitch on the spot?
I don't do a lot of camping usually, if that wasn't already obvious.
Hi Captain, here is the website for the campsite at the cité d'aleth :
It's in English.!!!
You star! Thanks!
