Road Trip – A Day Off Chateau des Ormes On The Al Fresco Excursion - Thomson Al Fresco Blog

With August here the activity programme at the Chateau des Ormes is in full swing! As the campsite’s Activity Team Leader I have been busy organising the launch of an Al Fresco excursion from the camp site in Northern Brittany.

After visiting local attractions a route for the excursion was decided and a coach was booked. Please see details below regarding destinations on our “Road Trip”.

The Grand Aquarium – St Malo

The Grand Aquarium in St Malo is popular with many of our guests and you can see why. You can observe 11,000 animals of 600 species in themed rooms adapted for the animals. There is just so much to see! A trip to one of the largest aquariums in France can be remembered by purchasing items from the large, impressive souvenir shop.

A previous blog describes the beautiful town of St Malo

Le Gilles de Bretagne” in St Cast le Guildo

Looking over the river estuary “Le Gilles de Bretagne” is a typically French restaurant cooking fresh sea food. The delicious aroma bursting out the kitchen windows could be smelt as soon as you stepped out of your car. A three course lunch time meal has been arranged for €15 euros including the French tradition, Moules et frites.

There are picnic benches around the restaurant should you wish to take your own packed lunch for the day.

A Local Cider Farm in St Cast le Guildo

Unfortunately due to the time of year that we are visiting the manufacturing process is not practice. The owner has agreed to open his shop for us to visit and provide samples of cider for you to taste.

We wish to take away the worry of driving, traffic and parking and give you even more time to spend relaxing with your family. Speak to one of the reps on site when you arrive about prices and the day of excursions.
