General

  • Lively site over 30 acres and next to a pine forest
  • Waterpark with water playground
  • Beach 750 metres away via a peaceful woodland path

All you need is Camping Les Amiaux: welcome to a lively campsite set on 30 acres of land, beside a pine forest.

The campsite has a large waterpark with an indoor heated pool and an outdoor pool with waterslides. The paddling pool has a water playground for children and the sundeck is the perfect place to relax and soak up some sun while the kids have fun in the water. Fancy a dip in the sea instead? The beach is only 750 metres from the campsite via through a woodland path.

The site has traditional camping pitches for all types of units. Each pitch is separated by natural hedges and supplied with water and electricity.

Wifi is available at reception, at the bar and in designated areas throughout the site. From Monday to Friday during high season (mid-July through to August), the team arranges a wide programme of activities, entertainment and a kids' club.

    Pitch sizes. Water and grey waste on pitch as was electric. Nice showers and toilets. Nice pool and over road, using underpass, was pool with slides. Nice bar. Meals available, didn't try. Helpful staff. We stayed at end of Aug and was fairly quiet. Not sure I would have given such good reviews if a few weeks earlier as think it may have been noisy and bar would have been packed.
    No charcoal BBQ's allowed, only gas.

Excellent site just let down by night time noise issues 28/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Good clean site. Pitched good size with established hedges giving screening. Water standpipe within pitch. Good shop and takeaway. Swimming pool with slides was used everyday. Kids loved the slides and we were always able to get sun loungers. Access easy with number plate recognition barriers.

    Disliked: 

    Noise after 10pm was very disappointing. The site felt louder after this time than through the day. We had no problem with the on site bar/disco as this was in the background and was to be expected. This always ended promptly at 11pm. Families with children returning to pitches in the evening were very loud with shouting and screaming most nights beyond midnight. English speaking children and teens left unsupervised to run around the site after quietness should have been observed at 11pm. No sign of any site staff enforcing rules on quietness but should they be expected to do this? Half way through the week the wind direction changed and noise from an adjacent site disco dominated the site. This started at 10pm and continued for some hours. Obviously nothing the site can do about this but it was a shame. Luckily we could make up for lost sleep as the site stayed quiet until 10am. However it limited our opportunity to get out and about during the day.

    Welcome and no deposit/keys for barrier.
    Friendly staff
    Reasonable food in restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    Noises from traffic from the road and other campsite music until midnight up the road.
    The ridiculous rules around the swimming pool - no swimming shorts or inflatables.
    It's suppose to be a 4star campsite, but doesn't supply basic toilet paper or soap in the wash room area or even a door on the toilet. The taps were plumbed in the wrong way with hot water coming from the cold water tap etc.
    The wifi was total rubbish - a waste of money.
    The 15min pushchair struggle through deep sand to get to the beach from the campsite.

    The shop didn't always have fresh bread loafs or milk on a daily basis. There were always fresh baguettes but the young children weren't always keen.

OK site if you don't mind too much noise 21/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The staff at reception were very helpful. Swimming facilities were good.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately there was a lot of noise at night time. For example, regularly there would be footballs being kicked about after 10pm; loud shouting and singing around midnight and people making a lot of noise as they returned to their pitches.

    I also found dog mess around our tent as one pitch near by let their 2 dogs run around not on leads.

    The site is also not that close to the beach. You have a lengthy walk to get there especially if your pitch was in the far part of the site.

Overall a lovely site 16/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Large friendly camp site in a lovely location. Our standard pitch was adequately sized for a big tent, although larger pitches are available.

    Plenty of safe areas for the children to play without fear of traffic. Our kids loved the pools and play areas and having the freedom to ride their bikes around the site.

    Other guests were generally well mannered and polite; there were a good number of other English visitors so the kids had plenty of other children to play with.

    Toilet / shower areas were regularly cleaned.

    Disliked: 

    On a few nights the neighbouring camp site had very loud music well into the night which disturbed the kids sleep.
