It's the End of the World As We Know It
For my motorhoming friends out there, I can disclose three spots that have not been mentioned in the hot off the press 'All the Aires' Third Edition . You can actually stay at the Pointe de Raz itself but this comes at the heady price of 15 Euros. However, a fellow cheapskate Brit that we met on our tour also pointed out that there is an aire at the nearby Pointe de Van which is free. There is also allocated parking at the Baie de Trepasses in the daytime only.
Seduced by the promise of solitude we stayed a few kilometres east of Lands End francais at Plogoff, a candidate for a new swear word if ever there was. From there it was an easy cycle to the Pointe de Raz and coast path walking of the highest quality on the GR34 was within a ten minute stroll. Even Louis who has known to grumble at the prospect of a walk didn't complain too much for an eight year old. With such a dramatic setting you might understand why!
