General

  • Five kilometres from the beaches of Royan
  • Kids' club and regular activities and entertainment in high season
  • Large pool, playground, snack bar and communal barbecues

The five gorgeous beaches of Royan are reachable within a short drive of Camping Aloé in Charente-Maritime on France's south-west coast – and the beaches and dunes of the Côte Sauvage as well as the island of Oléron are easy to arrive at to the north.

The site's setting near the commune of Medis is seven kilometres from another designated 'Famille plus' family resort in St-Georges-de-Didonne, and is around 60 kilometres from La Rochelle. It covers two and a third hectares, with a 200m² pool that includes a small area for kids to splash safely, and plenty of room to sunbathe alongside.

Camping Aloé also has a playground with inflatables, and a reception with tourist information and a weather station. Supervised kids' activities and events like aqua gym and evening entertainment are run by the site team.

Pick up quick bites at the snack bar, sizzle meals on the communal barbecues, and source bread and pastry sales from the site shop for alfresco brekkie. Aloé has free wifi throughout.

    Toilets and showers were clean.

    Disliked: 

    There wasn't any entertainment taking place on the nights we stayed although we booked for that reason. The shop had hardly anything in. You have to supply your own toilet rolls. There was also a green band of oil around the swimming pool where it wasn't clean

Fine if nothing else available in the area but I wouldn’t recommend. 22/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    Not a lot ! Basic site, easy to find, good location for Royan (15 minute drive) nice pool with sliding cover, nice for a touch of shade. Basic playground and bouncy castle (too hot to use).
    We are a British family touring with VW transporter and caravan.
    The site pitches are small, crammed and you’re on top of your neighbours and tight to manoeuvre in (hence no twin wheelers).
    The reception sells limited bits but no fresh produce, no bread, milk or butter for breakfast. You cannot walk anywhere from here as site on main road, SuperU and bakery are a good cycle or drive.
    The facilities are reasonable but a bit smelly, toilets are clean-ish but, oh my, not a toilet seat on a toilet nor a toilet roll dispenser in sight (byo). No hand wash on the basins either (byo). Showers are a bit smelly and you cannot change water temperature, dishwashing area spacious. Washing machine is good, 5 Euro and there is a dryer too.
    WiFi code provided for one device for whole stay but WiFi doesn’t reach to touring pitches very well (fine at Pool and bar).
    This campsite is fine if nothing else available in the area but I wouldn’t recommend.

    Disliked: 

    Most of it !
    Smelly facilities, no hot water for 24hrs, cloudy pool, busy and crammed. No onsite shop for fresh produce.

    Nice people at the campsite and very quick to reply to messages

    Disliked: 

    Pitchup site is pretty crap, my bank card expired between booking and paying the final balance, pitchup do not allow you to update card details just tell you to contact the campsite, so it’s a case of we’ve had our commission sort it yourself. Won’t be using again

Directions


Local attractions

The beach closest to the site is the two and a half kilometre stretch at Royan, five kilometres away, which is fully family friendly and on a nicely mild slope to make it suitable for kids. Families should also like a potter among the gardens and trees of Royan's promenade, and seeing the boats and fishing fleet at the town's busy harbour, the departure point of boat trips along the coast.

Royan's setting of the Gironde estuary is the biggest estuary in western Europe, where the Dordogne and Garonne rivers meet. It has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the Blaye Citadel, Fort Pâté and Fort Médoc), boat trips among its marshes, and a wide variety of wildlife to spy. You can also catch a ferry across the estuary from Royan to Le Verdon-sur-Mer.

About 12 kilometres south of Royan at the fishing port of Meschers-sur-Gironde, the caves of Régulus make up an extensive troglodyte settlement, carved into rock above the seafront. From here (town not caves), move on to Talmont, the scenic small village on the northern side of the Gironde estuary, with medieval ramparts and handsome 11th-century church.
