  • Liked: 

    The owners were very friendly and polite. Sophie spoke good English, which was good as my French is terrible, Jean-Paul seemed very jolly and out going but alas his English was as good as my French. I must learn more French. The pool was excellent, the kids were in it at every opportunity, plenty of li-lo's too.What we didn't know was that France seems to have a 2 month main holiday period so most things weren't available (snacks, drinks etc) but this was everywhere not just this site. Shower block was a good size, well looked after but there wasn't really enough time on the lights. The caravan we stayed in was very good, clean tidy everything worked, the bed was superb. Good shower in the caravan. Everything seemed to be well maintained and looked after. Well done to you both. We will be coming back one day.

    Disliked: 

    No kettle, I did ask for one and that was no problem, one was handed to me. No grill or oven in the caravan. Only 1 plug socket in the kitchen but that is down to the manufacturer not the owners. Pitch up give the impression all facilities would be open, they weren't. Bit of an ant problem but thas was probably to a bad rain downfall one night. Private parties when there are guests was upsetting/annoying.

From the manager...

Thanks for your comment Marc. Hope the first stay in France let you good memories.
Sure out of saison, all our facilities are not opened, sorry for that. Not enough people in the site...
We enjoyed your good mood.
Best wishes
Sophie & Jean-Paul
