What can I say, apart from the weather what a fantastic location.

Entertainment on site for kids and adults - BRILLIANT - Max, Howie and the gang made the week for us as we'd had little entertainement for the rest of our holidays. Excellent activities for lots to enjoy, football, tennis, water polo, kids games and evening entertainment to include quiz, bingo, showtime.

Toilet blocks were unisex showers, toilets, basin areas, washing machines, tumble dryers, disabled showers and WC's separately, very accommodating.

Lovely staff on site, comfortable Drancourt Cafe, Take away, restaurant on site, Chateau bar and also a Cinema Bar for entertainment. Large Tennis Court, mini golf, lots of WC facilities around this huge camp site too. Pony Rides on site along with go kart/bike hire for the site.

Helpful and good english spoken throughout the site.

St Valery sur Somme - definate visit - amazing little village near the Somme river with lots to offer as shops, restaurants, pharmacy, horse rides, train rides.

Not many recent reviews, so I decided to give my views. Not the type of site we normally choose, but we stayed to meet up with family who regularly go there and stay in one of the statics. We found it an easy drive from Calais and easy to find, although beware of following sat nav as you find yourself towing a caravan along horse tracks. Reception staff friendly and helpful, although very little English spoken (not a criticism). We had one of the more expensive super pitches which give you a shed with a fridge, patio set, barbeque and your own water and drainage. We had a good time because it was not school holiday, although a lot of French people with kids turn up at weekends, but no problems. St Valery is a busy place with difficult parking, loads of restaurants and expect to pay a lot more than you do in rural France. The take-away at the site is only recommended if you are desperate and we didn't try the restaurant. I wouldn't go there again, but would recommend it if you have young children as there are pools and it's busy enough to keep them occupied. We didn't use the shower/toilet blocks so can't really comment but they looked ok. I asked at the reception where the chemical toilet disposal facilities were located and was directed to the motorhome service point which was about 300 meters from my caravan - later found out there was one nearby in the toilet block.

I only used the bar a couple of times and preferred to drink at my caravan. Bar is more of a wi-fi area and somewhere for the reps to meet. Picardy is nice but found St Valery very commercial and touristy.

We stayed for two nights on the way back to the tunnel. We thought that with the castels name and pricing that the site would be clean, organised and well maintained. It was not! The pool was shabby, dirty and poorly maintained. There was a huge industrial tent erected as a sort of covered play area, which flapped and banged all night. Worst of all was the amount of obscene graffiti which had been left scratched into the toilet doors. We couldn't let our young boys use them. Probably the worst French campsite we have ever stayed at in over ten years.

Had to wait for a hour at reception as turned up while they were having lunch.

They told us our pitch which had no grass just mud.

Lots of the pitches were shut down as they were putting lots of pitches to statics the site is becoming lots of statics and pre erected tents

Felt it was very scruffy.

The swimming pool was very nice though.

Dident think the area was up to much st valery, le crotoy and rue were nice but apart from that not much else in the area will not be returning.

Sadly I have to agree with some of the most recent reviews. We arrived to book in and as no information was forthcoming about the facilities. We felt that we were asking all the questions. One of the main reasons we chose this site was that it was a Castels chain site. Castel really have to check up on this one as we certainly would not return.

Our pitch was smaller than we are used to and cats seemed to roam freely and twice I had to chase them in the space of an evening. Then again in the morning.

The toilets had graffiti on them and we saw quite a bit of litter lying around. Even saw a petrol can lying abandoned. For us as a couple this site was more suited to families who like entertainment, noise and hundreds of statics.

This is advertised as a four star site but due to its condition I would only say it is worthy of two stars. Will not be back.

St Valery is such a lovely place with fantastic cycling in the vicinity and beautiful beaches.

Stayed here without much research on way back up to Calais for 2 nights, booked direct and still cost 35 euros a night. Ok, it's a little isolated, but it's not too far to drive to St Valery which is a nice enough little town for a day or 2.

BUT. Site entrance badly designed, many people arriving at same time, no clear arrival waiting spot meant long delays and 3 point turns. Staff fine and we could pick a pitch anywhere we liked, pitches were flat, can't complain.

Loos and showers dated with mouldy sealant, you get the picture. Lots of noise from older kids and teenagers, not little ones playing, but stopped at night.

Pub not open much, expensive and the one at the castle really quiet, felt like you were intruding, the other one was like dante's fourth circle of euro disco hell. Retreated immediately.

Ultimately our fault for not checking before booking but really would advise steer clear of this one. Also - Don't book through Eurocamp, they tried to charge us over £60 a night for the same stay. Would not return, sorry.
