Stayed here for 3 nights, expensive I think for what you get. I was told by reception staff who were most unhelpful on check in, its because of the location. That was me told. They did not want to speak English so its a good job I have a decent grasp of the language, some other tourists said the same when we were chatting about it.

Its a large site with a lot of private places on, a lot of static homes, the motorhome pitches have hard standings with sandy patchy grass for your awning. A lot of nationalities use this site, we made friends with a Dutch couple who were camped opposite and an English family next to them.

At 7pm some music blared out of speakers near us and spoke just in French telling us the evenings entertainment. The first night we went, when we wanted to eat in the restaurant, we were told it was closed for a private party but we could have takeaway. We chose pizza and it was delicious. The live band which were latino style were good for us to listen to though for free!
We always found the restaurant / bar staff very helpful and friendly. The second night was paella night, the third night was galette / crepe night. We went in for the crepes and watched a magician who was funny and good entertainment, the place was packed. All entertainment stopped at 11.30pm officially but went on til midnight then it was quiet.

The shower and toilet block closed at 11pm which I found strange. This was quite clean but confusing as all unisex which took some getting used to!

The washing up area was round the side of the shower block and hence a good walk for me to bother with. I washed up outside the motorhome.

There is a kids club but it is very French orientated and my children were not made welcome so did not bother to attend. I made my views known to the staff! They used the swimming pool instead when we were on site.

We did not travel far around as the beach was gorgeous and we collected mussels and oysters to eat 2 days running. The dog was allowed on a strip of beach luckily near the harbour. We did eat in a traditional breton galette and creperie place in town, which was delicious. The town is quite touristy, bucket and spades etc, cash machines, spar supermarket and a central fish market (only open till 1pm) plenty of places to park and tourist information very helpful.

I would not use the site again I would probably check out a municipal site in the area now we are a bit more clued up!

We spent 4 days here in July07, Camping Bel air is a pleasant, clean well run and well maintained site, 50 M from a lovely sandy beach, very near the resort town of of Pornichet, ( about 5 minutes drive) adjacent to the larger resort of La Baule both are french holiday resorts with very few british tourists.
The site has a mixture of static caravans and touring pitches which are in different areas so the statics dont tower over you if you are camping. All pitches have access to EHU.
Pitches vary in size and are all bordered by hedges which provide privacy. Due to the proximity to the beach the ground is quite sandy and grass was patchy in places.We did have to transfer pitches after one night as our pitch was too small for our unit( only big enough for a small tent!)- sadly they don't seem to have any system for allocating suitable pitches- they put you wherever which is a negative- we were lucky we could move but you may be stuck!The larger pitches could be requested by mailing in advance I suspect.
The wash blocks and showers were clean and well maintained with plentiful hot water and good facilities for washing and dishes. The only drawbacks here I could see were that there are no sinks in the toilets for hand washing and after 10pm the( unisex) sinks and showers were closed leaving nowhere to wash your hands after using the loo. There was also no toilet paper -remember your own!
The pool was very pleasant,no frills( flumes etc) but plenty of loungers and although its advertised as 'unsupervised' there was a very nice lifeguard on duty when we visited. There is a nice kids playground, basketball court etc right outside the bar /restaurant so you could have a drink while watching your children play, the prices were reasonable and the quality very good. Activities are arranged in high season( kids disco etc)
Overall a nice site in an area - if you are looking for a site near to Nantes for the rugby world cup you could do much worse than basing yourselves here.
