We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this site, it was quite quiet for most of the time, then came the French Bank Holiday and the whole dynamic changed, the place came alive, the pool area was full and vibrant buy still plenty of sunbeds available. The shop had limited stock but there was a supermarket a short walk away. The beach was a good 5 minute walk away but not if you had much to carry, it was 20 minute walk into the town and but only 10 minutes to the restaurants, bars and shops.

Have just returned from Les Menhirs after a break of 8 years.

It's amazing how memories change - in this case for the better - the site seemed a lot more open than I remembered.

Reception is very efficient - and even let me stay later on the last day at no charge so I could get the 11PM ferry from Caen.

The location is fantastic 10 mins walk from the town centre and 5 mins walk from the beach - perfect.

The pool is small but has two great (fast) slides that kept the kids happy.

The bar is small but quite pleasant.

There are three sets of very decent toilet/shower blocks that were constantly being cleaned.

I booked one of the 'prestige' pitches with the BBQ, water and waste facilities - not for the facilities themselves but because of the larger pitches. The basic pitches are quite small so if you have a larger van then it is worth considering the extra money.

Gripes:

The shop is poor and closed more than it is open.

There is quite a large static contingent which changes th esite dynamics a bit - especially if you are in the midst of them.

There is only one chemical loo point which became a little unpleasant at time when some of us caravanners decided not to clear up any mess that we made - this was cleaned quite promptly so cannt fault the site - just the users.

Am I going back again - oh yes.

It is expensive bit worth the money for the location in my eyes.

A medium sized commercial site with several tent and chalet operators. Fairly quiet on our visit in September 2012. Nice grassed pitches with water taps every couple of pitches and all with EHU. Two large toilet blocks with Showers/washing up areas etc - These were kept very clean during our stay. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby with weekly markets on Wednesday/Sunday with lots of food stalls. Small shop on site with limited stock during our visit as season was due to end but bread could be ordered daily and fresh milk always available - The shop also provided an evening take-away service for hot chicken/sausage and chips etc (6to8pm). The indoor pool was very clean and pleasant but closed on Mondays. The site manager Sylvie was very helpful. Beaches are just 5 mins away from the site and you can catch the little train to La Trinite-sur Mer

This was our first trip abroad in our campervan and we chose Carnac because it was only 3 hours drive from Roscoff and Les Menhirs had swimming pools and was close to the beach.

The drive from Roscoff was very easy with most of it being on quiet dual carriageways. The easiest way to find the site is to follow the signs for the Tourism office at Carnac Plage and then keep going for another 100yds and the site is signposted on the left.

The owner of the site speaks English which is great and will help you with any queries. The site at the end of July was full to capacity, but the pools were never overcrowded. The lifeguard would always ensure the slides were used safely. Our children aged 11 and 14 yrs spent many hours on the slides. There were table tennis tables, but there were often full. There was a very noisy kids club, our kids were too old to try it.

The pitches were a good size, with some being separated by hedges. I would recommend asking for a pitch around the edges of the site, as the ones in the middle are affected by the noise from the pools and the evening entertainment.

Although the site was busy, this was made up by the proximity of the site to Carnac Plage where there were many eating places in the evening and lots of wonderful icecream parlours. It was just 10 mins walk max to these and then you could walk back to the site along the beach.

If you want a quieter site, then it is probably worth going to the ones between here and St Trinite Sur Le Mere, where there is still a beach, but no eating places within walking distance.

Finally take a bike or hire one and tour the area using the many cycle lanes - French drivers will always let you out at junctions and give you plenty of space when overtaking, so it is a real pleasure cycling around.

We have done this type of holiday for the past 6 years. We have never returned to the same site twice and have usually gone with French Freedom or Matthews HOlidays.

This time we opted for a three bed caravan which I have to say is considerably more spacious than the two bed. The living area is much bigger.

We really liked this site. In terms of entertainment and things to do it is not at the top but the location for us was everything. Short walk to the beach, short drive to numerous others. Short walk to lovely eateries and shops.

The kids 9 8 4 all had a lovely time, the eldest meeting up with friends at the park the middle one playing football and the youngest going off to the 'colouring in ' club.

Pitches small and I have to say a little scruffy. But if you like Brittany and you like being near the beach then I can highly recommend.

We really liked this site, it has everything you need, the pools and slides are great, nice little bar, toilets clean, pitch was a good size with own tap.

It is within walking distance of shops, bars and the beach. A great little supermarket on site, with a larger one 5 mins drive away. Shop also sells really nice take-away food, which wasn't too expensive.

We went out of season (end of June) so it was only about a third full, but it was really nice and quiet.
