Escale Saint-Gilles Maritime magic in Cornouaille

Situated on the edge of the pretty Saint-Gilles beach, Sunêlia Escale Saint-Gilles welcomes you to the seaside resort of Bénodet at the mouth of the Odet, one of France’s most beautiful rivers.
The wooded 9-ha park offers a fantastic “tropical” water complex, a very pretty spa and high quality facilities. Enjoy exciting holidays in the heart of Cornouaille, the land of legends and traditions, with cruises on the Odet or towards the Glénan islands, fishing or sea trips, diving, walks and more.

An exceptional setting

Escale Saint-Gilles is situated in a superb location between the Odet and the Glénan archipelago which is visible from the coast. The seven islands are grouped around an inner sea, with transparent water, beaches of white sand and an internationally renowned water sports and diving centre. This marine Brittany paradise is made very easily accessible thanks to shuttles from Bénodet. The campsite is situated a few minutes on foot from the mouth of the Odet, a little river that winds through the Cornouaille countryside and which is considered to be the most beautiful river in France. It has to be said that a tour of the Odet is a very pleasant tourist trip, allowing this wonderful region to be explored. The river follows the Vire-Court gorges where it meanders through a beautiful wooded valley, bordered here and there by castles and manors, and meets the ocean at Bénodet, a seaside town full of charm and elegance.

A region to explore through exciting activities

Finistère is waiting for you for an exciting and invigorating sea-air holiday! The generous selection of leisure activities, visits and discoveries reflects this region of age-old traditions: visit marine cities such as Brest, Roscoff and Concarneau whose names are evocative of great maritime adventures; explore historical cities such as Landerneau or Guerlesquin La Tregoroise, as well as Morlaix and Pont-Aven which inspired many painters. Mythological itineraries, walks through megalith sites and traditional celebrations offer a vast range of choice for culture lovers. The sea is, of course, ever present for a wall walk along battlements, a shore fishing trip, a kayak excursion or for simply reading a good book and contemplating the countryside that you are bound to love!
