We spent 11 nights here at the height of the season. We had a great holiday but did have mixed feelings about the site. Overall the site is very attractive and the location is fantastic being so close to the lovely town of Sommieres. Clearly we were there at the busiest time of year but it was shame that you could not go out for a meal without booking several days ahead in the town, we prefer to be more spontaneous on holiday. This is a big site and as other people have commented it does lack the personal touch, I have no idea who the owner was! Staff are polite and efficient but their focus is on the site facilities rather than sharing knowledge of the local area. On our day of arrival we were told that the restaurant was fully booked and our only option for dinner was to order pizza as all restaurants in town would be booked. So we duly rushed to order pizza then headed into Sommieres for an explore - only to find there was a big food and wine festival in the main square with food stalls aplenty. We felt frustrated that reception had not been aware of this or thought to tell us about it. The pool area is really lovely with the lower pool being particularly lovely as it is surrounded by trees and is heated. The site was dominated by British families when we were there and for us we felt disappointed that we didn't, t feel we were in France until we left the site. The area is stunning and we enjoyed fantastic days out in every direction - baux de Provence and Arles, Grau de roi and Aigues mortes, St Guihelm le desert are all beautiful and we also enjoyed catching the tram into Montpellier from Odysseum. Back to the site this was the most expensive we have ever stayed on and yet he facilities did not match those of others we have stayed at, the showers were okay but there was no handsoap which made me wonder about hygiene around the site. Our children thought this was disgusting! Our pitch was the very smallest on the site, our caravan and awning literally filled the pitch and our car had to be squeezed across the opening, I had given the dimensions of our outfit when booking so was disappointed to be so squeezed in. So in summary, is is a good site but not excellent and the area scored more points for us than the campsite. We would return to the area but choose a smaller, more personal site with hand soap!

We stayed a week but in hindsight a few days were enough for us. - good for families, not that we would stay in the peak season out of choice. Our pitch was large enough but very uneven in places with trees, roots and leaf litter, not to mention dark, but I guess in the heat of summer the shade might be welcome. Just the one 'sanitaire' block which might prove a trek for those at the extreme reaches of the site, but our pitch was very close. Despite the 5* rating, we have experienced better sites. Used the restaurant once. Food was tasty but the portions huge - I just had a main course and left some of that. Staff were very friendly and most spoke good English to make up for my poor French. Visited Sommieres twice -. Once on market day - once on Monday when the shops are closed, but suited us for exploring and a good lunch. Walked along the cycle track beside the site which was pleasant. Unlikely to use again as we prefer smaller sites, preferably owner managed for a more personal experience.

We have camped for many years and have suffered, as we all do, with the variable british weather if you choose to stay this side of the channel.

After many disappointing damp weeks of camping we decided to start chasing the sun and headed to the south of france in the hope of having a blue skied holiday.

This site is absolutely worth investing in the 13 hours to get there from Calais. We had an absolutely fantastic 10 days at the site. The pitches are really roomy and are shaded by trees which is a godsend given that it was 30 degree plus for most of the time we were there.

The site has one toilet block which is immaculate and was in easy reach of our pitch.

I would suggest that taking a cycle is wise as it does make life much easier getting around when you need to round up the kids for supper or bedtime.

The pools (2) are perfect and there are a number of slides which our kids loved.

We ate in the restaurant once and it was superb value for money - 20 euro per head for a three course meal - the portions were huge and cooked really well.

There is plenty to do around the site, including a disused railway line which runs through the site and is now being used as a cycle path which runs for 20kms or so. Brilliant for those who enjoy a bit of cycling.

We also went kayaking & the french equivalent of GoApe which are on the sites doorstep and are great value for money.

All in all and great site and we are looking to book again which speaks for itself.

Reviewer: Berriow 51 reviews from this member

It's interesting for us to come here as it's quite a different, and more expensive site, than we would normally visit.

We ourselves have a very pleasant, large, shady touring pitch, but some of the others are far from ideal - not in shape, not in position (hemmed in between statics) and not in location. Some for instance are a long, long way from the single toilet block, and all are far too far from Reception, bottle bank and rubbish bins - you need a bike for that, or you go by car.

Some of the on site cabins and chalets are large and roomy, but others are small, mean, badly designed and poky. It's a very mixed bag once again.

There are good play areas for little children, and water slides in the pool, but most of the clientele at the moment (early July) are elderly British and Dutch - there are very few children here.

The restaurant is an attractive chunky rustic design, better than any camp site restaurant we have ever seen, and the teams of charming, attentive waitresses are delightful, but the huge helpings of poorly cooked food are frankly gross. A mixed grill was an enormous plate of over cooked beef, pork, duck, sausages, and everything else they could find. On a scale that would make an obese American blanch. The need to think of quality rather than sheer quantity. This is not French style. In fact the catering isn't style at all.

So we as first timers here find it all a very patchy operation in so many ways. We think it will appeal to the unadventurous traveller who is willing to pay big money for a camp site which is quiet, safe and secure, but it's not somewhere that will draw us back.

Good site with good sized shady pitches mixed in between the chalets/caravans. We stayed in late August- 2 adults and 1 10 year old girl, in a large family tent.

Not sure what makes it a 5* site compared to 4* Castel sites though.

Reception was polite and efficient, shop was useful for emergencies but very expensive so use the supermarkets which are only a short drive away.

Restaurant was also expensive but excellent quality food whilst the takeaway was standard French takeaway fayre.

Shower, toilets and washing facilities are of a good standard and always clean. Plenty of them too.

The 2 pools were great however the fact that there was a gate between them meant it was awkward and also too many people reserved the insufficient loungers and this wasn't controlled by staff, this might be a bit tricky if you have more than one child and have to keep swapping between pools. The one without the slide was much calmer

You can take the wine tour and buy wine but note this has to be booked in advance and is not actually on the site but across the road.

Sommieres is the closest town which is about a 25 min walk down the cycle path. Take a torch if going out at night as there are no lights.

Night time market was lovely and had a great atmosphere and there is a good selection of bars and restaurants.

Sete is fantastic particularly the water jousting at the end of August.

It seems like people come to this site year after year as you see people wandering around trying to look at your pitch/chalet to book for next year. Also although some people recommend a bike because it is a large pitch this really is not necessary and the amount of children biking around can be a bit irritating.

We have just returned from a 3 week stay here. It was very lovely. Very well kept and clean site. Regularly cleaned toilets and showers(which were plenty warm enough). Excellent playground facilities. Swimming pool and slides were very much enjoyed by my children and their father! The local town of sommieres is really quite beautiful and only 1. 4km away. The site attaches to the cycle route which is perfect. Lots of people cycling/roller skating/jogging or just walking no cars and no dog poo(although the occasional horse manure). There is so much to do on the surrounding area stunning towns to walk around/Kayaking and canoeing/horse riding/Go Ape(tree climbing)/lakes to swim in. A totally wonderful holiday many people return to this site year on year definitely need to book quite far in advance if you hope to stay here.
