We have just returned from a fantastic week at Kervilor, the campsite is small and informal, some of its facilities are slightly dated and look slightly tired, namely - crazy golf, kids play area, notwithstanding that they are fully fuctional and our 7 and 8 year old boys loved them! the site is used by a good mix of nationalites. Toilets and washrooms and washing up are always clean and never short of hotwater only complaint is no soap for handwashing after using the loo. The pool complex is FANTASTIC, our kids lived in there for the whole week. The bar had entertainment most nights we didn't go and couldn't hear it from our tent. The takeaway on site is rubbish the food was very poor less the chips, there were takeaway vans Pizza etc a couple of nights a week which were good. Pitches are an okay size but do vary pitch to pitch. Beaches locally are great very shallow for about 1/2 mile.
Overall a very good experience take plenty of insect repellant as the midges bite like mad!
We have just returned from a week long stay at this site. The positives first - good location (easy walk/cycle to the nearby town/port, the pool complex shop, friendly staff.
The negatives: very noisy (the noisiest we've ever stayed on) in fact we left a night early as we could not put up any longer with the neighbouring British families who chose to carry on being loud until gone 2am despite the 11am noise ban. We felt this should have been addressed by the management who supposedly have a night watchman. The toilets/showers were not cleaned enough and there was no soap to be seen!
We felt the bar area was also a bit soulless and scruffy and the kids club was a bit hit and miss - we saw one parent go to collect her child only to discover the club had moved to a different part of the site! We had to tell her where they were!
All in all the location and pools were good but we felt a little let down by everything else.
We've just come back from a one week holiday. We took our 5 year old son and went with one friend and her 5 year old son. I agree with everything the previous reviewer said, this is a lovely campsite. It didn't feel over-commercialised, the static homes are completely separate from the tent pitches (I took a wander to have a look and they took a bit of finding!) The staff are lovely, really helpful from the minute we booked, took time to make sure we had pitches together. The pitch was a good size with plenty of shade, the only issue was that there had been a caravan on it so half was very dusty with little grass, but I think if we had asked we could have moved, I met other people who didn't like their original location and were moved. The shower blocks and toilets etc were spotless, even though the site was nearly full - no queues! The kids loved it, and it felt very safe to let them scooter round the site - we hardly saw them some days! The pool complex was great and very lively, nice playground for the kids and a small kids club with bouncy castle, although ours didn't really try it, they had made friends already and wanted to go swimming most days. Even though the campsite was busy (nearly full) it was very quiet after 11pm. The takeaway was OK. One word of warning- the pizzas look lovely but do remember to order them early - we didn't and then couldn't order them at 8pm so we didn't get to try. The surrounding area is gorgeous, Trinite Sur Mer lovely for an evening stroll and meal out. The only issue is this site is a little way from the beaches and the times of the free shuttle are a little limited (we didn't use it), but if you want to use bikes there are really good bike routes to all the nice beaches and the Menhirs. We'd definitely go back!
We stayed at Kervilor for 13 nights in high season on a good size electric pitch with a tap (hidden in hedge in back corner, very handy), the pitch was big enough for our Montana 6 with extension leaving room down the side to sit out and park the car.
Our pitch was down a small avenue with approx 6 pitches each side of a narrow road with no exit at the end, this meant that once all the pitches were in use and everyone had parked it could be quite an effort to get the car off the pitch, there was parking near reception and we just used this so not too much bother. There were 3 toilet/shower blocks all of which were clean, with seats and paper in cubicles.
The pool was fab and it was difficult to get our son out so that we we could go site seeing. One pool covered and a selection of decent slides, it was fairly busy as we had very good weather mostly.
The site bar had free wifi (again a hit with son) and in the evening the bar seemed to be mainly teens standing around with phones, ipads etc. There was some entertainment at the bar, a disco one night, bands and a karaoke night, we didn't go to any of these and couldn't hear them on our pitch.
Takeaway for burgers, frites etc(do as the French do and take a bowl for your grande frites you then get a really good portion), a pizza van visited two nights a week and also a crepe van on other nights. The surrounding area is wonderful, lots of fab beaches our favourite was Le Men du, Menhirs at Carnac, La Trinite sur Mer for evening stroll, Quiberon. One word of advice try to avoid the super you at Carnac on sunday morning it was bedlam.
Over all we had a really good holiday and would definitely stay at Kervilor if in area again.
Toilets and showers were always clean. Lovely to have a toilet seat - so many sites in France don't bother with them for ease of cleaning. Pitches were of varying size - we had asked for a large one as we have a twin axle and it was more than adequate. Very private pitches with good thick hedges.
Very friendly and helpful staff and owners and always hard at work. Bar area had a good atmosphere in the evening although sometimes it was just full of people there using the free wifi.
The site was very quiet at night. Even on the nights when the disco ran till half 11 it very quickly dropped to silent and we were never awoken during the night.
The pool was very busy particularly towards the end of the afternoon and there was an element of boisterous children but this was August. Our second week was the end of the French holidays and it was much quieter and a pleasure to swim in.
We cycled everywhere, Trinite, Carnac, Quiberon (although that is quite a long ride) and all round the megalith sites. Mostly cycling on the roads but near the beaches there are cycle paths.
