We stayed at this campsite for two nights in a motorhome with three children. The pitches are fantastic - separated by small hedges with electric hook up on the majority. We didn't use the water but this was available. The shower and toilets were clean and warm as was the washing up facilities.
There was a cafe on site situated next to the swimming pool. It sold the usual snack food and was quite nice.
The swimming pool was good with plenty of sunloungers to go around.
There was no shop on site and any orders for bread etc have to be wrote the night before on a whiteboard near the cafe. The campsite seems to be located in an industrial park. We tried to go for an evening stroll but there didn't seem to be anywhere nearby within walking distance.
Overall this is a quiet, peaceful and clean campsite and is ideal to use for a stopover as we did.
We visited this site in mid Aug this year and even then it was not too busy. If your after a quiet friendly site not right in the centre of things this is for you. The only negative we had was that my teenage daughters thought it was a bit boring as there was nothing for them to do at night, (We had previously stayed a two large sites with organised discos etc. So she'd been spoilt and was comparing with them).
The pitches are really spacious with electric hook ups not too far away, I only needed one extension reel. Water points are spaced conveniently around the site and the shower/ toilet blocks were well positioned, regularly cleaned and had plenty of hot water.
The pool area is nice with plenty of sun loungers around it, and is positioned next to the small bar/cafe area. This serves snacks, drinks and ice creams during the day and has a limited but nice sounding menu of the day at night. We didn't eat there at night but what food we saw looked really good.
The main beach we went to was approx.15 minutes away at Ondres Plage. This is the typical west coast beach with miles of lovely sand that would never be full even on the busiest day. Ondres has a large(free) car parking area, several snack bars and a couple of nice restaurants. On a warning note as previously mentioned this is the 'Savage coast' and the surf can get VERY big. One day was fine but the next we saw at least 3 people carried up the beach to the 1st aid post. That said the beach has very attentive life guards with flags showing where is patrolled and if your careful and only go in to the edge of the breaking waves kids love it. Lastly at the beach there is a horse riding centre which does 2 hours trips through the woods and along the beach in the evening. The English of the instructors is very limited and it is quite expensive, but even as complete beginners the experience of riding along the beach as the sun went down on our last night was one to remember.
Near the site there is a large supermarket about 5 mins away and Biarritz/Bayonne are not far to go for a visit.
Overall a nice, clean, well run site that I would recommend especially for couples or young families.
A well organised site, about 7km from the Aquitaine coastline. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The site itself is laid out with nice spacious pitches, mainly divided by hedges which is nice for a little privacy. Mostly these included electrical hook up, with fresh water taps dotted around the site. Some of the hook ups were quite a way from the pitch, so extra cables might be needed (would be worth checking with the owners first). Facilities included a lovely pool, which is just as it looks in the picture, a bar/restaurant area, where the French owners prepare a range of foods plus a dish of the day. The showers, toilets and washing up facilities were plentiful - we never had to queue - and pretty clean, with plenty of hot water. There are also washing machines and tumble driers which could be used for a small fee. Fresh bread was delivered to the site every morning, based on a simple pre-ordering system, so you could have your croissants for breakfast.
Everything on the site is really well organised, even down to a security key for each group, that operated the main gates, and there were a few sensible rules in place that were mainly adhered to. The site owners were really helpful, even to the point of preparing a late meal and calling the local medical centre and arranging an appointment when my daughter was ill.
The closest beaches were lovely wide sandy beaches, with huge waves - great for surfing - but very rough, and unswimmable at times, for children. For quieter seas, we went to Biarritz, which has smaller coves, and St Jean de Luz about 14km up the coast which has wide sandy beaches, but protected so calmer. St Jean de Luz also has that mediterranean atmosphere, with lots of restaurants and cafes to try with genuine Basque cooking. Biarritz is fairly busy, as is St Jean, but there are some pretty, and peaceful little villages in the foothills of the Pyrenees, just inland. We were in the area at the time of the Bayonne Fete, (which is an experience in itself)so the area around Bayonne was busy with a huge number of french who had come to the area especially.
This was a lovely child-friendly campsite, and quieter than some of the large coastal sites around the area. I would definitely return.
If you are looking for a quiet, clean, child friendly site in fantastic garden like surroundings. This is the site for you.
It is less hectic than the large coastal, all singing dancing sites.
The site is family run all of whom speak English. It has a small bar and shop, cafe, 2 playgrounds, pool, games room, half court tennis, table tennis, tv room, unisex toilets, disabled facilities.
The avenues around the site are wide and the 168 pitches (99 for touring) are spacious. All have electricity (6/10A) reversed polarity, many also have water and drainage and some are separated by low hedges.
Also possible to arrive when fully booked as they have an overspill field with electric at the top end of site. We phoned them at 4 pm after finding our original site inadequate and arrived at 5 pm. We stayed for a week.
The great thing about this site is its only 7km to Bayonne town centre 17 km to Bairitz which is hectic during August.
Supermarkets cash points and other shops 5 mins. Pitch prices are not cheap. But that reflects the quality of surroundings and amenities.
Clientelle I would guess is 50-60% British with the remainder Dutch, French, German.
