Reviewer: Atko 9 reviews from this member

Visited end of may 2015 for one week with my wife and three children (14, 12 & 9). We stayed in one of their static mobiles which was to a very good spec, however they only have 2 bedroom homes on site, so be aware.

We arrived to a friendly welcome from staff. The shop is joined to reception and is small but well stocked. The restaurant was not open until the beginning of June which was disappointing to many people as looked nice.

We felt the site was small, well kept and facilities very clean. I can only comment on May and not high season, but this site was very much aimed at the baby boomers with 90% of visitors between 65-80+.

The pool is pleasant, but NOT HEATED, so again be aware as in May not really that useable. My children are reasonably well behaved (i know all parents say that) anyway one of my children was told off by an older lady by the pool for playing catch with his sister. She informed them all she wanted was peace and quiet which on holiday was not unreasonable, and surrounded by older people all reading is understandable. However, this is not an adult site only, it is not a sandals holiday as I politely reminded the lady in question.

The site lacked facilities for children i. E. Poor play areas etc. I think the owners would be better off having it as a adult camp site.

I won't cover the surrounding area as this has been done before.

In summary, if your 65+ and don't mind a cold pool then this site deserved a very good award. However, it does not deserve the 10/10 IMHO due to limited facilities and an unheated pool.

Had 6 nights at this excellent site after 11 days in Italy. Facilities are of a very high standard - I don't think I've seen toilets/showers cleaned as often.

Owners / staff very friendly and helpful. The rose wine from their shop a steal at 3 euro a litre!

Site was still 'complet' mid Sept which says a lot for the quality of the place. Lovely big pitch with plenty of shade - much needed with temperatures in the eighties.

Great base for exploring - we only did Avignon, Pont du Gard and the Alpilles this year - I'm sure we'll return and do more.

We stayed at Monplaisir for 9 nights in late August. We were looking for a quiet site that didn't bombard us with entertainment all day/night long but located in an area of Provence that allowed us to go exploring different areas. Monplaisir was the perfect choice.

We are quite fussy about campsites, but can honestly say this is an immaculately run site, clean and tidy with all the services and amenities mentioned on their website.

Plenty of up-to-date showers/toilets blocks and although the site was full whilst we were there we never had to wait/queue. They were cleaned regularly during the day and were always acceptable.

English is spoken by most of the reception staff and they were very helpful and polite at all times.

The on-site shop is good and the local wine at 3 euros per litre is excellent. Fresh bread, pastries, cheese, meats, milk and much more.

The on-site restaurant is good. We ate there twice in the evenings and could not fault the food. Service on the first night was slow. A wait of 50 minutes for a pizza is not good, but when it arrived it was worth the wait. Service on the second night was far better. Overall, the food was excellent.

The site is located a pleasant 1km walk from a supermarket and in the outskirts of the town of St Rémy which is charming. Wednesday is market day and worth spending the morning there.

We prefer adult only sites and these are few and far between in France, but without a doubt Monplaisir is the next best thing and we would thoroughly recommend it if you are considering Provence for a holiday.

They do take bookings (but charge a booking fee of 18 euros) so our advice would be to check for availability before traveling, then arrive as close to 8am as possible when the reception opens. Gates open at 7am so you can gain access to the site if you are a bit earlier and perhaps have a wander around the site to gather available pitch information before booking in.

One further tip for 'tenters' without a fridge in hot climates; they sell frozen bottles of water (1 euro) for your cool box which last considerably longer than the standard ice packs and provide a cold bottle of water when thawed the next day.

You will not be disappointed with this site. It is one of the best we have stayed at in France.

An absolute gem, just a pity we could only stay for two nights.

Clean and modern with spacious, private pitches and the shop/reception had an extensive range that was fairly priced (there's also an Intermarche within easy walking distance). Lovely swimming pool area which has a permanent lifeguard and opens up to the bar and snack bar. There is a Mediterranean garden attached where you can sunbathe on lush grass or shelter from the sun under trees.

The motorhome service area was a bit of a tight fit but that's barely a criticism and we'll be back next time we're in the area as it's well situated for visits to Avignon and Arles and just five minutes from the wonderful Roman town of Glanum.

A wonderful campsite! It is run by a family, and every detail has been considered. Spotless shower and loo blocks which are cleaned very regularly, all free. No need to bring your own toilet paper. All supplied! Very efficient washing machine and driers. 6 Euros for the washing machine and 3 for the drier, soap automatically dispensed in the machines. Free iron and ironing board in the wash rooms. A wonderful french delicatessen on site, they bake their own croissants int he morning, fresh bread available every day, with a selection of cold meats cheeses, tinned and canned goods, milk. Wine from their own vineyards! Everything you need is on site. There is a lovely spotless pool, a library where you can swap your books; ping pong tables. Very generous pitches. As campers we needed a good hammer as the pitches are grassy and stony, to accommodate the camper vans and caravans. Well drained, we had a couple of nights of torrential rain, and the site drained very quickly. Very friendly very safe. Families take over in July and August. The wise old campers without ankle snappers said they go out of school holidays and avoid July and August. Suitable for everyone. Very family friendly, and a wonderful location. Very popular with all nationalities and people book from year to year. Close to Arles, visit Glanum, amazing Roman site 5km away. Fabulous market and wonderful food in St Remy. Including a home made famous chocolate shop! Can`t wait to go back.

It's difficult to find more positive statements to make than those already found in other reviews. We have just returned from camping monplasir where we had our best French camping holiday ever. The site is spotless and well maintained, the pitches are large and private and the atmosphere is friendly. The pool is essential in order to escape the summer heat (42 degrees on two days in our first week!) and whilst it can be busy it never felt over crowded. The shop is ideal and the local intermarche is only a few minutes by bike or a ten minute walk (aldi is five minutes by car). Our children loved the traditional games evening with the ballon animals and bouncy castle, all of which was provided with quiet charm and no tackiness; the lantern parade was also lovely. This quiet campsite is a must for families looking to relax, unwind and generally chill. St Remy is a pretty town with a lovely market and further afield there is a lot to see and do. The only downside we could find was the limited amount of cycle tracks and our bikes were fairly redundant; although this is a tiny price to pay for such a great holiday. We most definitely plan to return.
