We stayed at Noguiere for 2 weeks and were very disappointed with the site. The access is very poor for a large outfit (we have a twin axle) - up a steep hill with sharp bend at the top right before the entry barrier. Once you have negotiated that the roads around the site are also very tight and overhanging with trees - one of which caught the top corner of our van. The pitches are very variable in size - some are large but they all seemed to be prebooked when we arrived and we were forced to use a small corner pitch totally inadequate for an 8 meter van. The pitches are also very close together so very difficult to get any privacy, and it can be noisy. The electric points are few & many hook up cables have to cross the roads to actually get to a point. The actual electric was only 6amp - the first time ever that we were unable to use our electric kettle (with everything else switched off) without blowing the circuit, really annoying. We had several storms during our stay and the electric blew entirely then!
However, the shower blocks were very good, pool was excellent and the bar area/ TV very good for the world cup - the site is FULL of Dutch people, very few Brits, and the Dutch made an excellent atmosphere during their teams wins. The area is very convenient for visiting numerous areas on S coast - we got as far as St Tropez & Monte Carlo. Gorges de Verdon is unmissable, so long as you can cope with the bendy high roads, but find a better site to stay on. We checked out Moulin Des Iscles about 3 miles down the road - much quieter & better site but no pool.
Stayed at end of September. The facilities are relatively good, with restaurant and large screen TV, shop (although Lidl 2 miles down the road towards Frejus is excellent for the basics at very basic prices), and amazing pool with waterslides, although it was too cold to use when we were there. Also plenty of dog walking area around the site itself. Copious hot water in the toilet blocks and enough children's areas dotted around to keep them happy.
If staying under canvas (we were the only ones) must recommend you take good quality rock pegs, all our standard pegs were ruined as the ground is like concrete, and even rock pegs we 'borrowed' got bent. We always take ear plugs with us and on this site they are essential if you want a decent night's sleep. The site is close to the N7 (very busy road)and the A8 motorway is within a couple of miles, and the sound rises to a roar from about 4am.
We were unlucky in that the weather wasn't particularly kind to us during our stay, although we found that as soon as the black clouds rolled in (pretty much every day) we hopped in the car and drove down to Tropez or other villages along the coast where the sun was out and the temperature was a few degrees warmer. The area around Le Muy is not what I had anticipated to be the traditional Provence you see in all the books etc., but the site is close enough to the scenic areas to not be a problem unless you really don't like getting back on the road after the long journey down there (12 hours from Calais).
One thing I wasn't impressed with was that the site closed the restaurant to residents on a Saturday night to allow travelling groups exclusive use of it. I appreciate they want to make money but I think it's not unreasonable, when paying a premium nightly rate (we paid 27 Euros a night for tent and dog), to expect all facilities to be dedicated to residents throughout their stay.
I would stay here again but preferably in a caravan, either our own or one of the site's own units, and earlier in the season when we could make full use of the faclities we are paying for.
RCN do special offers off peak - we asked them nicely and they split a two week deal between two sites, this and Castellane. They're not cheap sites! We cheated and did a Fly Drive to Nice, cost about £600 all in flights for four and 14 days hire of a Megane. This site looked a bit barren at first, and was on a busy road - however, being Provence we found out that everywhere looks like that, being so dry.
Very hot and sunny here, not a great deal of shade. Small shop at reception and a bar with basic restaurant. Small snack bar doing pizza, chips etc. And indoor games room. Huge, huge pool, the main one slopes gradually from ankle depth to four metres , also a second pool with excellent water slides.
A holiday village attached with what looks like a number of permanent residents, although being late June the site was less than half full and we has the huge pool to ourselves one morning. I expect it would be pretty busy in high summer.
There's a small lake / large pond for fishing and (allededly) boating, but it felt like the sort of place you got bitten to death by mozzies.
Le Muy is a couple of miles up the road for a Supermarket, a few restaurants and a (twice weekly?) market, also an excellent wholesale bakery just before le Muy which did all sorts of good bread, tartes, croissants etc.
Frejus and St Raphael are twelve miles or so down the road, we preferred taking the road to St Aygulf and driving along to St Maxime and St Tropez. There are plenty of small coves along the way, expect it's hell parking in July and August though.
Some super drives into the hills to the north, I can recommend Cillans le Cascade for a spectacular waterfall and an alfresco lunch in the village. Nowhere to change Travellers Cheques though, I had to drive to Draguignan post office. Plenty of Dutch here, a few Brits, a handful of Eurocamp statics when we were there. Ground is probably like rock.
Altogether an excellent site, especially the pool. Everyone very friendly and being Dutch, speaking better english than wot most of us do. A little short of shade when it's HOT.
Highspot was when the nearby hill (Roquebrun) caught fire - we watched as a fleet of aeroplanes dropped water onto the flames for several hours, then the whole lot glowed throughout the night. The whole site was completely kippered, but a fantastic sight!
