A very well-run site. We spent time on two different pitches. All pitches are a good size, but some are enormous, if irregularly-shaped, which wasn't an issue for us. Some pitches, on the two 'avenues' running North/South next to the main field have little or no shade and we needed rock pegs because the ground was so hard. On the other hand, there are a lot of shady pitches - you need to ask when booking. Plenty of washing facilities, cleaned well and regularly. A bicycle is a definite advantage if you are on the south or west side of the site, because it is huge, and you will find yourself a long way from the pool/reception/shop etc. I can't comment on the shop as we went down the road to the Proximarché oppposite the site entrance which had everything we needed on a daily basis plus an excellent butcher (the owner of the business) who did everything he could for us. Prices are a bit higher than at the supermarkets at Vaux and past Les Mathes, but I like to leave the car parked up as much as possible. It's about 25 minutes to the beach by bicycle, for example, for someone who uses a pushbike regularly.

I couldn't fault the quality of what is offered by this site, but we won't be going back. When we were there, at the end of July/start of August, this was an overwhelmingly British site, which is not we are looking for when we go to France (there was a set of circumstances that led us here this time); a lot of people have bought mobile homes here and spend the summer or sublet them to British families, the avenues next to the open field reminded us of a CC site (unsurprising as it can be booked direct through the CC), which we would choose not to visit in the UK, there are a lot of repeat visitors and a well-established social circle, which was not particularly inclusive (though that didn't bother us). I can understand why people might prefer to be somewhere where language will not be an obstacle, and they would be well served here, but if you are a bit more adventurous, you may find it a bit too much like home, but with good weather.

This is our fourth visit to this site and it never disappoints. Very large pitches

New toilet block 2014

Shop and restaurant bike hire all on site

Nice pool only downside no umbrellas for shade

Good mix of nationalities

Very friendly staff who all speak English

Not a lot in the immediate vicinity, but only a short drive you will find all you need beach, supermarkets and small seaside towns. Lots of cycling on the doorstep

This is not a commercial site no entertainment

Where to start! This is a wonderful site with so much to do in the surrounding areas.

We stayed on a serviced pitch which was huge and in a great location. The nearby toilet and shower block was spotless and cleaned regularly. The staff were very friendly and the campsite shop well stocked - I enjoyed my morning stroll to get the croissants every day!

The pool was a fair size although it was cold despite the blazing sun. The rules do say no balls allowed in the pool (something we didn't notice initially) so my daughter was told she couldn't play with her inflatable beach ball, which was fair enough. However, this rule was consistently applied as the were often others using balls in the pool!

Its a site I would definitely stay at again and I can see why many people do return every year.

Stayed on this site for 13 nights. It is a huge site with large pitches and was very busy when we arrived. Predominantly English visitors, a selection of tourers, tents and statics. However, there are no pitch separators so privacy is minimal and discourteous short cutters through pitches are a regular occurrence! We we lucky enough to have a pitch near the water tap but from what we saw there are very few on site. The children's play area is one of the best we have seen although there is no shade at all at any part of the day. The pool was large but situated a very long way away from the pitches so a bike or for some a car is essential to get to it. There is no shade at the pool and very few chairs or sun loungers. The toilets blocks are in need of some upgrading and perhaps more frequent cleaning as the toilets were more often than not in a less than desirable state and always very smelly. If using the loo after 9pm you needed a torch as lighting was not good. The weather was amazing but with it comes biting insects so I would recommend anyone coming here stocks up on mosquito repellant and sting relief products as well as ant powder as there are so many trees here that there is no escape! The area itself is fantastic, beaches are amazing and the site is a good base for visiting the numerous places of interest in the vicinity. Having viewed several other sites in the area during our stay, this one appears to be the best of a bad bunch. Would visit the area again in a heartbeat but would probably seek out an alternative sight first

Drove down from Saint Malo, arrived on site 4 15 pm with one stop, We use the Auto route as we like to make the most of our time in France. Friendly welcome in reception, very good English spoken, shown to our pre booked pitch and told where everything was. We'd booked a Grand comfort pitch with 10 amp electric, which was huge, 30m from the shower block which was always clean and never overcrowded. Toilet paper was not in the cubicles but on a big roll on the wall as you walked in

We had some shade as the pitches are set back against the pine forest, leaving a huge open space betwwen the camping area and reception and the pool, which was ok. No slides but about 7 foot at the deep end. We used the restaurant on site which was fine, but didn't bother with the on site shop as there are plenty of supermakets within 15 minutes.

Beaches are only 7 or 8 minutes away. Saint Palaise sur Mer and La Palmyre are nice little towns with cracking beaches. The Zoo at La Palmyre is worth a visit.

If you have them, take your bikes, cycle paths everywhere.

Talking to Christian in reception, He said about 65% of his customers were returning British. They have a big storage yard so a lot of people leave there van on site. There were quite a lot of Dutch on site during our stay.

Would return.

We stayed here for a week in early August.

It's a family-run site. It seems 'mum' does reception and 'son' shows arrivals to their pitch. Both were happy to converse in French or English or a mixture! Friendly efficient welcome. You pay the day before departure. 20 Euro deposit in cash required on arrival for a key for the barrier.

Good-looking, well-kept site. Large open playing field between reception and pitches.

Pitches indeed are big. We had asked for shade and got it. Good that we did as weather was good (apart from arrival and departure days) and temperatures in the high 30's. A pitch in full sun in that heat would not be an option for us - yet that's what many had.

Pitches are generally marked by shrubs or trees in the corners but there is little or nothing in between - where you would perhaps expect hedges. This means in some cases you would have little privacy, and also means some people use acres of wind-breaks or washing lines strung between trees.

Electric hook-up is available with options on Amp rating, so it's worth working out what you need beforehand to ensure you don't pay for a higher rating than you actually need.

Certainly the 'regulars' are abundant and there seems to be a subtle clique amongst them. It feels a bit like a Caravan Club site, just relocated to a hot place.

I think the wash-blocks are the site's Achilles. They are unisex which in itself I don't mind, but when there are queues for toilets in the mornings, I imagine many ladies do not like 'hot-seating' with men. The showers varied in quality and there were often queues for those identified as the better ones. Water pressure generally was frustratingly low. Water temperature in the showers is non-adjustable, and often rather hot. Toilet roll is provided but only from a dispenser outside the cubicle, which often ran out. Urinals in the main block just too smelly to consider using. Baby/toddler bath facilities are available but in very short supply.

There is hardly any artificial light on the site at night, which I liked, however this extends to the wash-block so if you do need to pay a visit in the night you may need a torch.

The site is nice and quiet at night. The noise suddenly stops, usually, at around 11 and the quiet time is generally very well observed. We did though experience a lot of noise on our last night with several British groups, and a French motorcyclist(!), keeping us awake until after 3am. No management around monitoring this.

Plenty to do and see in the area, although if you want an evening out you will probably need to use the car.

Not a great deal on-site for teenagers, apart from each-other.

I thought the on-site shop was a little bit naff, but there are several supermarkets, big as you like, within a short drive. Traffic at peak times going towards Royan can be very heavy and slow.

The site is reasonably priced in comparison to others in the area, I think, and the spacious shady pitches are great to come back to after a day on the fabulous beaches. I'll forgive the slight issues with the wash-block, and we will return for sure.
