    Swimming pool and fresh croissants in the morning.

    Disliked: 

    The first pitch we were given was too small and sloped despite stating on the booking the size of our van and awning.
    The second pitch was much bigger and better sited.Toilets and showers ok but would not rate this site as a five star site for touring pitches.

Family Orientated Site Great for cycling. 06/09/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Ann B. Confirmed

  • Electric forest floor pitch (supreme)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very friendly/helpful staff in reception, shop and restaurant. The site was further than we thought from looking at the map from local beaches( last minute booking). It is primarily set up for cabins. The touring pitches vary in size, I think, but we certainly had a good space for our motorhome which measure 7.5 metres. The toilet/shower blocks were fine (typical for this busy time of year). There were three swimming pools two outdoor, one indoor,very busy with families with a bar/cafe and restaurant next to them. WIFI is free and available in reception/bar area. We found this to work well for us.We tried the restaurant which was busy most nights, good portions specialising in pasta and pizzas. There is nothing within walking distance to go to eat, that we found.Shop is relatively small for size of site has basic items. There is a Hyper -U about 2 kilometres away. We cycled there for provisions. There are a number of areas spread around the site for sport(gym, table tennis etc) and a well equipped playground for children. You can hire bikes from site.Outside the gates of the site is a cycle track. This opened up lots of possibilities for us. I would recommend a visit to St Giles Croix de Vie which is about 5 km on cycle track (away from road for most of time), when you get nearer town it is on cycle path at side of road. This is much prettier with a "Grand Plage" ,harbour,shops and restaurants.You can also follow Vendee cycle route down the coast to Bretignan sur Mer on cycle tracks through forest and by coast line. We also cycled to St Jean de Monts on cycle tracks. This is a large beach area. Notre Dame du Mont is worth a visit we loved that area (stayed there a few years ago). Jardin du Vent is worth a visit. This area is a paradise for cycling.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet /shower blocks could do with more frequent cleaning. I know it is a busy time of year but this would have improved my rating of the site.

Brilliant site with great facilities, good size level pitch 02/09/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Sarah W. Confirmed

  • Electric forest floor pitch (supreme)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved the pools and slides. The pools were a good depth for our 9 year old as he could just touch the bottom on the main ones. The site itself was lovely. It was perfectly shaded with the pine trees, so although it was very hot whilst we were there, the camper van stayed cool.
    The facilities for our pitch were great. There was water and electricity on our pitch and the toilet block was close by. The toilets were great, clean and functional, not a hole in the floor!, great free showered too.
    All in all I
    We had a great holiday here and would highly recommend it.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really.

poor touring caravan pitches, 30/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom ian w. Confirmed

  • Electric forest floor pitch (supreme)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Friendly staff and a good pool area although lacked sun beds.

    Disliked: 

    Pitches are not set up for touring caravans, with poor waste (a hole in the ground) and electrical hook up is a wire tied to a hedge. The touring pitch was not wide enough to set up touring caravan sideways on so had to set up length ways looking at a hedge. Ground was dirt not grass.
    wifi was poor although free.
    toilets disgusting, cleaned at 07.30 hours only, not enough. Also despite signs saying male and female men were often in womens toilet /showers. Young lads hanging about in toilet block, leaving my 12 year daughter not showering, lucky we had a caravan.
    Chemical disposal point for caravans was a toilet in the toilet block. No means of washing waste container out. The only rubbish bins were at reception for the whole site. No transport links to site.
    Definitely not 5 star more like 2 star.
    On site shop 3 times price of other shops

Loved it! It's actually better than the pictures! 29/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom William D. Confirmed

  • Electric forest floor pitch (supreme)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site was better than the pictures imply. Very friendly English speaking staff, with a very low key relaxed family run feel. A good shop, very clean, and very organised. Pool complex was amazing. Crazy golf was the best I've ever seen, probably a bit difficult for young ones.

    Disliked: 

    Drainage for serviced motorhome pitches was a bit border line! Very good amusement arcade, but it need air conditioning.

    DUST! Some roads through the site are just dirt and with it being dry the dust was terrible. Having to wash anything left outside and sweeping the tent out everyday was a bit of a pain.

Excellent site, large pitches, great pools. 15/08/2016

  • Liked: 

    Great pool area for all ages, fresh bread everyday in the shop, friendly and helpful reception staff, excellent take away, close to lots of different local attractions/areas

    Disliked: 

    Some of the touring pitches were not big enough to fit a caravan and an awning on, it took a while to find a pitch we could set up on. The toilet and shower block could do with refurbishing. Although there was plenty of hot water and all the facilities worked we felt everything was run down and rather dirty.
