Reviewer: Di+Glyn_W 16 reviews from this member

This was our first visit this far south, in search of sun, sea and sand. This site is just cracking.

We did the 700 mile drive from Calais over three days: 200 miles on day one after an early Dover-Calais ferry; 300 miles on day two; last 200 miles on day three. I've reviewed the two stop overs we used; Camping du Pres de l'Eglise and Roche Murat. We used the same sites in each direction so that the journey was fairly relaxed. It was well worth doing.

To access the site with a caravan, use A9/D83/D81, but go past the exit and up to the roundabout at the junction with D617, then go back on yourself, then take the exit. Otherwise, you'll be trying to go through a very small pipe under the main road to get to the site! Google Earth shows a road, but don't be fooled.

Book in at the site was slick. The reception staff were very welcoming, with plenty of information given by a French lady speaking excellent English. We were escorted to our pitch by a chap on a pedal cycle. Access to the area in which our pitch was situated was a bit tight, and necessitated us unhitching and using the motor mover to negotiate the hedges. Speaking to other caravanners, those with larger outfits had similar problems. Looking around though it doesn't seem to be a problem all round. Getting out was fine when we left.

The toilet facilities are second to none; best we've ever used and plenty of them. Exceptionally clean, and of a good size, with loo roll included!

The shopping village on site is fantastic - all the essentials and more, although a bit more expensive than the nearby hypermarket. There is also an on site launderette, with 12 machines plus three tumble driers. These are proper commercial machines; you pay your money and detergent is added by the system.

The restaurant and bars are ideal, although again maybe a little expensive. But hey! You don't have to drive anywhere.

The swimming pools are brilliant (speedos required). No food allowed round the pool, and towels used to reserve beds is strictly 'policed'; if you're not using a bed, they'll remove your towel. The nice bit about this is that it frees beds up at lunchtime when everyone gets up to get lunch. It means everyone gets a go round the pool! The beach however is amazing. A private beach with fine sand and a warm sea. Busy in the afternoon, but is quite possible to sit there without feeling crowded. Plus it's only a 10 minute walk back to your pitch for lunch. Or take lunch with you!

Access to the nearby town is simple. Either walk into the port and catch the water taxi across the harbour into the town proper, or catch the trainbus into town from the campsite. Either way, it's cheap and means you don't have to worry about parking.

There are plenty of shops nearby for main groceries. The nearest one is the Casino Hyper; turn right out of site, to T junction, turn left, then left at next T junction. Down to roundabout, first exit, and follow the road. There is also a McDonalds Drive Thru there, but only use it if your French is tip-top! We did, ours isn't, and the experience wasn't amazing for either party involved!

Evening entertainment is pretty good; there is usually noise in the form of music or singing from the adjoining site, but it never went past 1130pm.

One thing we did like was the work by staff to keep the site in top condition. For example, one of the tumble driers broke down one evening, but was fixed by next morning. One of the outside handwash basins was damaged one afternoon, and was also fixed by next morning. It just kept the site looking like it's actually cared for.

The only issue for us was bird poo! Some of the pitches suffer from large amounts of pigeon poo, as they roost in the pine trees. There's not a lot the site can do. We bought a cheap gazebo locally to protect our daughter's tent; many people staying used either cheap gazebos over tables and chairs or washing lines, or sheets of clear plastic over their awnings to protect them. It's not on every pitch, but a nuisance on some of them. If we get a pitch next year we'll be taking some large sheets of decorators sheeting to protect the awning.

This is the south of France; it's darned hot! So the pitches are just dust really. Many people take tarpaulins to put down to keep the dust down, but again we weren't fussed by it. The pitches are mostly of good size, and we were more than satisfied with ours. We usedboth rock pegs and some decent grass pegs to peg out the tent and awning.

Every now and again a fairly strong windpicks up, but this doesn't cause too much of an issue, other than to make you forget your suncream as it takes the sting out of the hot sun. It can pick up umbrellas and shelters on the beach, and will make awnings and gazeboes flap about, but we just put plenty of pegs out in the first place so didn't worry too much!

Finally. If you do nothing else, make sure you visit Carcassone (about 90 minutes away); walk right to the far side of the town (about 15 minutes) for the best, un-crowded restaurants. Make sure you have a go at the jetskis in the local harbour. And go into Perpignan and spend a day walking round the smaller shopping streets. Head for the Rue de Verdun, for some nice little cafes and restaurants.

Already getting ready to book for next year.

Stayed twice this year, both times in the Florida area of the site which happens to be the furthest away from the entertainment (by choice). This is a large site but never seems to be overwhelmed. Excellent staff in the reception and in all the facilities of which there are a lot, a plaza of shops, brand new swimming pools, sports pitches and a large dog walking area. The toilet facilities are excellent, immaculately clean all day long and lots of them. Lots of dog pooh bins with bags around the site and near the beach which was only 50 yards away with dogs allowed at all times, there were people fishing in the early morning and late at night. We cycled into the local town which seems to have a market every day, we also walked taking in the harbour area and the promenade. If you are a family looking for a site with lots to do this is it, but on the right pitch it is also very pleasant and quiet. Only experienced noise late into one night and that was coming from somewhere else. Security is excellent with one and all wearing site wrist bands at all times.

We stayed here for two weeks on our large twin axle caravan which we were able to access the site with ok, just a little tight on the junction the the actual road for it pitch, but we managed.

The sit itself is lovely and very well kept, toilets and showers etc are immaculate and the best I've ever seen. The site has everything you could need a boulangerie, hot roasted chickens, cashpoint, hairdressers, grisery shop, fruit and veg shops, meat and cheeses shop. Fantastic.

Beach access from the site, not the greatest beach ever but serves the purpose of having a beach within walking distance, approaching the far side of the beach leads to a naturist area which may be of interest to some and certainly amusing to our children!

I don't particularly think much of Canet, but again nice to have a walk around and possibly a meal. We also have a drive down to Barcelons, just over 2 hrs away which was good.

A word of warning we were in caravans ing area pitch 66 the bird poo was horrendous our caravan and awning was caked in loads of thick purple bird poi, took forever to clean off, so be cautious about where you pitch. We had no real sun on this pitch, but it was a welcome relief from the sun.

The noise of an evening was mainly from the campsite next door but usually quietened down by about 12 which suited us as that's when we went to bed.

We didn't use the pool area much, very overcrowded and pt really much space to actually swim in the way the pools are set out. It was too busy in its design too. And much smaller than it looks online. The loungers in the water are in an adult area only too where you can have just 15 min access at certain times of the day. The water slides are only open at certain times of the day too which isn't good in our opinion.

Would we return. No, despite being a family of 6 the site itself was too big for us and we realised we never use the entertainment and don't make much use of any activities during the day like kids club etc and felt the prices very expensive for what we would utilise.

Large commercial site with direct access to beach. Large pitches with water/electric/waste on each pitch. Toilet block facilities, which were spotless at all times, were excellent, although some of the cubicles were on the small side and you have to continually press the shower button. Waterpark /supermarket/ laidry/ breadshop/ butchers/bar/restaurant (everything)on site. All staff very friendly & helpful & most spoke good English. The site is full of colourful flowers & very well looked after. Only downside I could think of is the restaurant is pricey but I cannot think how I could improve this site.

A huge and extremely well equipped site.

Right on a very unpopulated wide sandy beach and with a full range of activities for families and kids.

It was full of German families on half term holiday when we stayed there en route to Spain. But it was very quiet at night in spite of that (well behaved German campers!).

The bar/restaurant was large and a bit impersonal. The food was OK and the service was good.

The shops were excellent.

The pitches were large and grassy with good shade.

The toilet facilities were spotless and excellent.

Quite expensive.

The site isn't easy to find - it's on a new development North of Canet harbour.

A large commercial site that has everything you could possibly need. The pitches are surprisingly large and there was water and drainage and electric on most of them.

We went out of season as it would not be for me in high summer as I can imagine it would be rammed with children and teenagers. There were a lot of people with nursery age kids during our stay but that was no problem.

The weather was brilliant while we were there so with immediate access to the nice beach and the large pool complexes we were very happy!

It has been said before that it is expensive (60 per night in high season) quality always costs more.

Would recommend and will come back but not in July or August.
