Excellent site, great location, friendly staff and excellent for kids. 03/09/2017

  • Electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Massive pitch, near sanitary block as requested, staff understood our useless French and spoke good English, pool and surrounding area spotless, location good, beach beautiful.

    Disliked: 

    Music went on a bit late and a bit loud on some nights. No entertainment in English while we were there. Laundry very expensive (nearly €10 to wash and dry a load). Excessive deposit for hire of bikes - €200 each for bike and €900 for tandem. Drinks at bar were expensive - €3 for a small Fanta. Up to €7 for a beer.

Overall a really pleasant site, clean, with a lot to offer. 26/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Reception staff were polite and friendly on arrival and departure. We really enjoyed the pool facilities and slide, perfect for cooling off on a hot day. We were close to a water point. The shower and toilet block were close and kept really clean for the amount of people that used them. The evening entertainment was pleasant, all in French but there were occasionally bands which sang in English. Loved that the beach was a short walk away. The walk to St Gilles is lovely and the market is a must go!
    Really pleasant stay overall.

    Disliked: 

    Not really much to dislike, campsite could get a little noisy, kids running up and down the roads with scooters til 11pm. Pool area could be a little bigger, so could the pool itself. It got crowded on very hot days.

    Friendly,professional,helpful staff and clean and well managed site all round. The pitches were a good size, the main shower block was great for cleanliness, space and hot water. The organised events throughout our stay were great fun and mostly free. Kids loved the water slide and the pool was always nice and warm.

Excellent site, pitches are a good size, site shop is poor for choice 02/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The size of pitches are excellent, we have been twice and both times been lucky to be sited close to the shower blocks, the cycle path at the rear of the site is excellent we used it all the time for the beach, market and town centre,

    Disliked: 

    Was unaware of entertainment being on, but not for us anyway
    Weather on this visit was terrible, last blue skies for the whole holiday
    Stubble with 2 weeks here got bored towards the end, but when went last time and only did a week found this too short, so maybe 10 days would be best

  • Liked: 

    Great site, big pitches, always clean and tidy with a lovely pool. There's a path that runs along the back of the site which is ideal for bikes that takes you to the beach and into town. Already thinking about returning next year!

    Disliked: 

    The site shop and snack bar was only open for a couple of hours a day and when we arrived at 12.30pm the reception was closed until 16.00hrs even though they state we could arrive on site after midday. Eventually found somebody to help us in the bar.
