I was there last year at the tail end of the summer, travelling from Loire area, right across to Concarneau and back to UK via Roscoff (on 30 Sept). France is usually quite sunny until mid October but last year was the exception. Sept wasn't particularly warm and quite changeable. But it had been a dry summer, with dams and waterways (Loire especially) across the country being very low, so you 'pays your money and takes your chances'.
I enjoyed staying at some very nice 4* campsites at ACSI rates. The further west you go the fewer visitors there are, especially after the rentree. Some campsites close quite early in the autumn.
For the notebook, good free aire at Pont-Aven (of biscuit fame), and a cute little touristy town with zillions of art galleries. Reminded me of the Black Forest area, which was a surprise.
