What a lovely site. Brilliant location on the sea front & good access. You have to park in a designated area then after checking in st reception you go & look for a pitch. We had lots of choice in mid June. All the pitches appeared well kept with short tidy grass/area & fairly level. The pitches were all numbered. Reception staff most helpful & English spoken. The pitches were large with easy access but our mover was a great help around the trees. You could choose shady of open aspect pitches. The sanitaires were immaculate at all times - they were mixed but you never had to queue. The little shop on site sold essentials including daily fresh bread etc. You got 30 mins daily free wifi around reception - you could pay if you wanted more but it was quite expensive. There are plenty of restaurants in easy walking distance. We cycled into Royan but St Palais was close enough & the daily market there was excellent. Overall a great site that was very peaceful.

First the location is fantastic, right across the road from the beach, which was accessible at low tide and was dog friendly and a larger non dog friendly beach further down the road.

It was quite full when we were there but coped very well with the amount of people there, for example the toilet blocks were immaculate throughout our stay.

Our pitch was quite big however I did notice some pitches were a bit on the tight side so it would pay to let them know the size of your unit beforehand

There are plenty of places to eat in the area and a supermarket a couple of miles away in the town

There is a shop on site selling fresh bread etc and the staff at the reception spoke English.

The only gripe that I had is that for some reason the staff have to come with you to connect the EHU up which was in a locked box on the post, which was a bit of a pain when leaving, as you have to go and hunt someone down to disconnect it and we had to leave early so had to wait for the reception to open first, and just to add you will need a French two pin adaptor.

To sum up, a great site which we will be returning to.

We stayed this site for two weeks. We were told it has recently changed ownership and the new owners have reduced its size from about 400 pitches to about 200. This means there are a few fenced off areas and rather a lot of unused static homes around the edges of the site, plus the older toilet block has been closed. And there is no longer a swimming pool on the site (this is made clear on their website).

There is a small shop which stocks a few basics and where bread can be bought each morning and pizzas each evening, plus cooked chickens a few nights a week. There is a games room which we didn't use, a small seating area with WiFi and a small outdoor play area. There was no evening entertainment. The toilet/ shower blocks were clean with plenty of hot water. There were lots of washing up sinks.

Immediately opposite the site is a small beach, but this cannot be accessed for much of the day because of the tide. However, around 10 mins' walk away is a vast sandy beach which shelves gently into the sea. A short drive in the opposite direction is the main town area with a small beach and plenty of small shops and places to eat. There is a supermarket about 5 mins' drive from the site. We had day trips to the local zoo, La Rochelle and a water park, which were all great.

Overall, this was a good site - the facilities were basic, but good, and the staff were friendly and helpful. If you want a pool and evening entertainment, this is not the place for you. But for a relatively small, simple site with not too much noise and with great access to the coast, this would be hard to beat.

It was relatively expensive at around 40 Euros a night for our pitch with hook up, but I think you have to expect to pay for a location like

This where you can walk to the beach.

We loved this camp site, small enough to be easy to get around with very helpful staff who spoke great English. Facilities very good with laundry, shop(although not wonderfully stocked) and takeaway. There was a lovely swimming pool with lifeguard. Beach was about 800 yards from the site.Beautiful long sandy beach with safe shallow water. There were safety deposit boxes on site to keep cash, cards and passports. There was entertainment at night but the village had festival and fireworks when we were there. Large supermarket close by and markets during the week. Site close to the wonderful La Palmylre Zoo which is well worth a visit. At trip to La Rochelle which has a great aquirumn a must and for those who like a tipple you can't miss the Henessey factory in Cognac All in all this was a very enjoyable and relaxing family holiday with lots to do and would go back again in a heart beat.

First the Area: Fantastic. Beach to the right. Amazing cycle path, especially to right hugs the beach and a preserved forest. We did the journey on bike to the zoo at Palymre on this route, and with my 5yrs on his recent '2-wheel' bike did it in an hour. We loved it so much, we did the it again with a beach picnic the next day. Parts of beach are very quiet and secluded, and therefore great. Route to your left takes you past the another beach into proper St. Palais for a nice afternoon.

The campsite is one of a few dotted along he promenade. It seems like the best too. The road is a normal touristy road, so as long as you hold your child's hand, it's easy to cross.

The campsite is nicely set out, with trees and shrubs. Receptions speaks English, and you can freeze your ice-packs or hire a fridge, bats and balls, etc. You could also request a specific pitch if you do so in advance.

Shop also stocks beer !

If youa re into the beach, stop over at Decathlon on your way to campsite near Rocehlle / Rochefort. You will save euros.

Very nice site.

Beach 600 yds away, or across the road at low tide. Large pitches most with shade and electricity, some have water points. Toilet blocks are plentiful but some are still of the old type but cleaned regularly. Small shop, bar, laundry facilities and take away offering cooked chicken and pizzas along with more traditional french food such as moules frites. Cycle hire There are a number of statics but these are mostly well away from the camping areas Walking distance to a number of good restaurants - great for those who like seafood. The town of St Palais is walking distance along the coastal route, by road is about 5 minutes in the car. Probably a bit far for young children to walk. In high season the area is very busy as this is a traditional resort area. The supermarket Champion is in St Palais and also Super U, daily market in town. Leclerq and Lidl are on the road to Royan.
Gas and electric bbqs only on the pitches, but there are communal charcoal bbqs. Great site for a beach holiday.
