We have just spent two weeks at this lovely peaceful campsite. The pitches are spacious, and the whole camp site very well looked after, with immaculate toilet and shower facilities (including an excellent accessible washroom). The English owners are extremely helpful and very friendly, maintaining everything to a very high standard, and going the extra mile to make sure that campers have a great holiday, without being at all intrusive. There is plenty to do and see in the local area, and the campsite bar was also a good place to while away many a pleasant hour. We would definitively recommend this site to anyone considering a trip to this area, though it's not the place to bring teenagers who are looking for lively night life. It would suit older couples like ourselves, or families with young children.

Definitely not one to be missed!

We arrived at the site following an extraordinary amount of rain, some of which continued during our one week stay. We were the only people there, apart from another couple who were touring in their motorhome and who returned during our stay. One other couple arrived before we left to stay in the gite. What could have turned out to be a disastrous return to camping after many years due to the weather was actually a most enjoyable time. The facilities are spotless, and the English couple who run the site could not have been more helpful and friendly. It is a quiet and peaceful site that is a short drive to the nearest village and supermarket. There are spectacular views of the snow covered Pyrenees and the pitches are very generous although some are gently sloping. The large pool was also kept spotlessly clean. We had breakfast a couple of mornings at the covered bar area, and meals are also served here in the high season. Bread can be ordered each day. This is a great base for exploring this part of France, or perhaps just chilling out by the pool. Can't fault it.

A wonderful friendly family campsite with the peace and tranquillity we were looking to experience in the real France. The facilities are superb and very family friendly; so much so my children asked to wash! Each pitch has plenty of room without feeling too enclosed by other campers and panoramic views.

The owners of the site were very helpful and full of advice for day excursions in and around the area. An easy day trip out to experience the Pyrenees. We will definitely return to Aux Memes and were so sad to leave as we made some lovely friends. Thank you so much for this truly wonderful camp site, a must for those seeking a get away from it all for an idyllic holiday.

Quiet site nestling atop rolling hills with picture perfect fields surrounding it. Perfect for a relaxing break - lots of families staying there, a reasonable sized pool for the site allowed respite from the hot weather and in the distance the Pyrenees are awe inspiring. The owners are fantastic, the toilets are clean and a basic menu is complimented by regular theme nights. The owners get some interesting musical acts in which add to the stay! The children's play park is small and suited for younger children. Site is large enough with very generous pitch sizes for you to not be on top of other folk. Very quiet at night.

This was our second visit to Aux Memes. See my earlier review. We stayed for around 7 weeks June/July going up to the Pyrenees a couple of times. Just as good as last year. Only difference is that there are some more pitches with electric hook up.

They are excellent hosts and even when we arrived in atrocious weather did their best to settle us in even though we couldn't get onto a pitch as too soft. If you like live music check out the website as we saw two bands whilst we were there. The Gers is a lovely region with plenty of places to visit. Local supermarket in Masseube stocks everything you could need and local markets are worth a visit too. If you are a motorbike fan they always have the MotoGP on the bar TV. We had a fabulous time and will be back again. Can't fault anything

Oh dear! Seems the word is out - we were hoping to keep it a secret.

This is a fabulous site in every way. We stayed for three weeks last summer and had a wonderful time.

Where to start? As this is a small site, the facilities are never busy and there is a friendly atmosphere, generated in large measure to Pete and Jan. The pool is a really good size and we often had it to ourselves. Loungers and umbrellas surround the pool, which is close to the bar, loos and showers, which are kept impeccably clean.

We stayed at a large commercial site in 2011, which was incredibly noisy at night and were looking for a quieter site with good pool. It is testament to the obvious tranquillity of this site that we selected a pitch close to the pool without any concerns about noise. This allowed our kids to go to the pool on their own and we could still keep an eye on them. Also, while cooking up sausages, I could nip to the pool for a quick dip and be back before they burned.

As to practicalities, Pete and Jan take care of most things. There is a large washing machine, good and spacious showers, a welcoming bar, with good value drinks and games for the kids. Jan gets fresh bread every morning if you order the night before and freezes ice packs (essential when we went as it was baking). Jan also does a dish of the day, which is apparently excellent (we didn't partake (there are plenty of supermarkets close by so we tended to cook for ourselves) but will this year). We can confirm she makes excellent chips!

The pitches are a good size and many have electric hook up.

On the entertainment side, there is obviously the pool and a small kids play area. There is also a table tennis table but watch out, Pete is a demon player. Pete and Jan also hire out DVDs and I seem to recall there was a TV in the bar, but it was rarely on. There is also free wifi at the bar. The kids loved exploring and given the location, there were no concerns about roads etc. However, primarily this is a site for those who want to kick back and soak up the sun and not for those who want kids clubs or 'animations'.

The only negatives would be that the pitches are slightly sloping, which meant we rolled off the air bed from time to time and little shade unless you create your own. Oh, and Pete's table tennis skills, which put everyone else in the shade!

We will be back.
