We loved this site. So much so, we returned for a second week a couple of weeks later in to our trip.

The facilities are kept absolutely immaculate by Bernard, the owner, and his staff. There is a small but pleasant swimming pool and a paddling pool for the little ones.

Our pitch had electricity, water and grey water drain, and was separated from our neighbours by pleasant shrubs and flowers.

I loved the area in that we could cycle along the cycle tracks in to the next town, have a beer and return home or maybe sit under trees on an almost empty beach or visit Cap Ferret. We also got a bus in to Bordeaux (bus stop very close). So many choices, lol, and all of them relaxing.

A lot of people there in June have been returning for many, many years which says a lot about the site. Without doubt we will be returning next year. The question is, for how long?

We are fairly new to camping and came across this campsite while exploring the area. The owners could not have been more friendly and are extremely helpful. They speak English as well as other languages and nothing is too much trouble for the team here. The site is very well maintained and one of the best we've stayed at. It's a nice small site with excellent seating area to have a meal (pizzas or salad etc). There is a 'chill out' area with softly lit lanterns for a peaceful relaxing evening near the restaurant and bar. Adequate lighting near the camp/camper-van sites with electric hookup and located near the ablution block. The toilets, showers and washing up area very immaculate. The swimming pool is very clean and has some sun loungers and sun shades which helps as some campsites we've seen have little shade. We'd definitely want to return again in future. Shops close by either 10 minute walk with the sea a bit further down from the village. It's a lovely friendly place.

Went here with high hopes having read the other reviews with rose tinted glasses; wished we had focused on those warning signs.

Yes the site is clean as the owner constantly has a mop in his hand but.

On arrival we received a surly greeting and were given a average sized pitch which we had to manoeuvre our new van around an oak tree. It proved more difficult when we tried to move it out.

This oak tree meant the with all the rain we had - despite it being August - sleep was difficult owing to the constant drips and falling acorns. If sleep did occur it was again disturbed by the road noise - which as other reviewers have said is obviously a route for fire engines and ambulances - and the refuse collection at 3am.

Yes the area is beautiful but.

Perhaps ensure you go in low season to avoid the bumper to bumper traffic if you want to see the beach.

As another camper said 'It was a long way to come only to wish we were home'

What a fantastic little site, and one we hopefully will return to. We stayed for a week toward the end of August. We had requested a very large pitch as our tent is massive and it did not disappoint room for our 8 x 5 tent, extension, large 4x4 and camping trailer.

The owners were on hand all the time to answer questions and give information out. Found a fantastic little place called Le Canon about 20 mins away near the Atlantic beaches but also on the basin so quite beaches for our little one.

Bought fresh oysters and they were the best we have ever had. You could also get boats from here across the basin or a tour which we did and it lasted just over an hour. Really great area for all ages as we have a 3 year old and a 12 year old.

The site is very well maintained and facilities never seemed over crowded even though the site was full every day we were there. We hope to be back next year. Also fantastic Bakery in Ares went every morning for fresh produce and the fish Mongers was amazing.

Lots of supermarkets around so never short of anything. Just remember supermarkets shut at Noon on Sunday's. Our Son especially loved the Donkey trailer ride around the site. Could of been a bit more for the older kids but our daughter is quite happy sat out with us at night.

Visited this campsite mid June. We were greeted warmly and allowed to choose our own pitch as the site was only partially full due to this being only the start of the season in France.

The pitches were of average size (probably generous for a coastal site) and were divided by small hedges and flowers.

The swimming pool was well maintained and never crowded. The unisex sanitary block was also well maintained and there were also the 'usual' dish and clothes washing sinks all surrounded by superb floral displays.

Bernard, the owner, was always on hand to lend a hand or for a friendly chat over coffee. He also delivered croissants and baguettes to our pitch each day as ordered.

By the end of our stay the snack bar was almost ready to open for the season and this would have been a wecome facility had it been open during our stay.

There was however an excellent Basque restaurant at the entrance to the site which we visited one evening and which also served takeaway pizzas.

We were able to cycle into town where there was a very useful 8 till 8 Carrefour (no closure for lunch!), an excellent tourist info and a weekly market.

Dedicated (tarmac) cycle tracks went around the Basin and we easily cycled to Andernos les Bains.

Trips to the Atlantic beaches took 15/20 mins by car and lifeguards were on duty due to the huge rollers.

There was a cosmopolitan feel to the site with a nice mix of nationalities and everyone was firmly in agreement that this is a very welcoming and well run site.

It was a refreshing change to be surrounded by caravans and tents of all shapes and sizes and not solely huge British tourers and towcars!

We spent 3 nights at this site on our way from Spain to the Vendee.

This is a lovely site. The owners helped us to pitch up, although at first they were quite insistent on us going on a pitch which would have meant manhandling the caravan, which is a twin axle, into place. We would have had no way of levelling the caravan up, and our temperamental fridge would not have been happy with that! However, we were firm, and then shown a pitch of a good size which meant we could reverse on as usual.

This is a picturesque site, with level pitches bordered by flowers and shrubs, lovingly tended. One couple told us they had been coming to the site for 16 years!

This is one of the friendliest sites we have stayed on in France. There was a real mix of French and English campers, with the majority being French.

The toilet and shower blocks are to an excellent standard, and extremely clean. They are mixed gender facilities, but people were respectful of one another, and it wasn't an issue for us.

The site has a bar, a snack bar, a small playground, and an area for playing table tennis and pool. At night, an area just outside the bar was lit up and became a boules pitch. It was lovely sitting outside with a drink, under the beautifully lit up trees watching the games and listening to the friendly banter.

This is a beautiful part of France, with plenty to see and do around the Bay of Arcachon. We went to the Dune de Pyla, which is an amazing sight and the view from the top made it well worth climbing the 170 steps to the summit. Recommended.

We also had a delicious meal at Tanya's Tearooms, situated on Rue Paul Wallerstein, just down from the main square. The owners of this restaurant are English, but have lived in France for over 20 years, and obviously have a big commitment to this community. The food was excellent. The menu was not big, but it was innovative and beautifully presented. I would have liked slightly larger portions, but the overall set meal price was very good value. The clientele were a mixture of tourists and locals. The staff always had time to speak to customers. However, it is the food that sells this place. We would urge you to give it a try.

We would happily have stayed longer at this site, and would certainly go back again.
