We stayed here after a trip to Disney for a few days to wind down.
First impressions were excellent - we stayed on a private site P2 which was just opposite the kids playground - fantastic for 2 tired parents to get the tent pitched and set up while they played away and no hassle of worries.
The pitch was big and lots of room for our big tent and to park the car on to.
The site is very big but still lots of room between pitches.
Lovely pool which we used and loved.
There is a pets area with goats, ponies, rabbits and guinea pigs which were great to watch.
We also loved the old fashion wooden fair ground games and had great fun with these too.
The town of Pontorson is minutes walk away and there is a carrefour supermarket within walking distance of the site.
My only negative which is not the sites fault is the very loud noise from the nearby road - it doesn't stop all night - not as noticable during the day but at night its very loud.
The site was nice and quiet from about 10pm which was ideal for us with 4 small children.
This site never fails to deliver on quality. Immaculate, showers with controls rather than push buttons, pool, large pitches, free wifi, 16 amp ehu. There is also a motorcaravan service point where 2 vans can go either side of the bourne to empty tanks etc. The town and supermarket are minutes by foot. Even better still is it accepts ACSI, so just paid €14 / night. Easy to get to and from, a good site.
We went to this site and paid extra for the 'luxury pitches' , expecting nice clean facilities and peace and quiet, but didn't to get it! The facilities were not well cleaned and we did not get any peace and quiet as the pitches are located next to the children's play facilities and they are inundated with rowdy and very noisy teenagers late at night. No site security! Additionally since the owners have opened a new route to another section of the site, the roadway past the luxury pitches has become very busy. Luxury they ain't.
Have to say this is the best campsite I have encountered, the location is perfect, in the town of Pontorson 8 kms from Mont-St-Michel - a beautiful easy walk along the river, or an 11 minute bus ride - the town of Pontorson is a little gem, nice bars and restaurants, market on weds. We booked a comfort pitch, you get your own private bathroom on the pitch ! wonderful idea, the pitch was enormous, could have fitted 2 motorhomes on it easily ! the site has a wonderful spacious feel about it, lovely bar/cafe, swimming pool, little mini zoo, and lots of open areas, it backs onto fields so was peaceful - there is a carrefour 2 mins away for stocking up on supplies, and it also has jet washers for motorhomes if you need to clean your vehicle ! - I cannot wait to stay on some of their other sites as KAWAN have a lot of sites all over France and spain. Just one thing dog owners need to be aware of is that dogs are not allowed on the buses - I was shocked as had been able to take them in all the restaurants !.
We stayed one night at each end of our Brittany holiday. It's a beautifully kept site very close to Pontorson and just a few minutes walk from a decent size supermarket.
Haliotis has good facilities and lovely grounds which made it one of my favourite campsites to date. There is a Japanese style garden, cascade pond, a herb garden which was great for the barbecue, a mini farm with goats, ducks, geese a pony etc. , a play area for littlies and a sport court for older kids, bouncy castle, trampoline and some wooden fairground type old games which kept my playstation loving son interested for ages.
The pool looked inviting although not huge and no slides my two (15 & 12yrs) enjoyed a dip.
The showers were great just like you would have at home with temp control and proper hoses with movable heads, beats the usual type that spray a tiny bit of mist at you from a tiny head fixed on the wall. Toilets opened onto the elements and the tiles in front got very slippery when wet, saw a couple of slip ups.
Church bells quite loud early in the morning and very slight road noise at night(only noticed this second time so must depend what pitch you are on)not enough to be an issue.
Seemed lots to do in area, we visited Mont St Michel on our last night which was very near. If you go after 7pm parking and courtesy bus was free.
I loved Haliotis and would definitely go back for a longer visit (fancy one of the pitches with private bathroom). Hubby and kids are fans of the all singing sites with big pool slides but all said it was a great site and they would go back.
Great site spoil yourself and get a delux pitch which includes a huge pitch area and own private shower w/c we'll worth a few euros more. Loads of out door space and game areas such as five aside football, pétanque, badminton, and table tennis. They still not sorted the WiFi out which is the only fault I can think of. Pontorson is a quaint town, market day is Wednesday morning a nice size, and there are a few restaurant to try out. Le mont st Michel not far away you can push bike it, but we drove to it 12 euros to park all vehicle's, free bus from the car parks to the mont and a great day out for all. Normandy is a great place to visit with loads to keep you occupied and this sites position is perfect.
