We loved this campsite. I would agree with everything from the previous review. The staff were excellent. We thought the pool was one of the best. It is great value. We have an ACSI card so it was only 17 euros per night. Easy scooter ride up to La Colle sur Loup where there is a very good patisserie, two small supermarkets and pharmacies.

This is an attractive, well established family run campsite laid out on terraces – steep in places – with hundreds of trees which give varying degrees of shade. The pitches are good sized, level and well defined, we needed a French plug on our pitch.

There are two unisex sanitary blocks, I used the upper one which contains 8 showers, 7 private washbasins & 8 toilets (2 squats). The toilets have seats and paper is provided in a big roll outside the cubicles, but no soap to wash your hands. The showers were roomy and water was warm, but the shower channel was inefficient as the floor level doesn’t slope enough towards the channel. This resulted in water sitting on the tiles where you stand, making it slippy – also water tended to run from cubicle to cubicle instead of into the channel.

The swimming pool is very good (approx 20m x 10m) with loungers and parasols and is heated out of season. There is also a children’s paddling pool and there is an exceptionally nice view from the pool area. The children’s play area and outdoor gym are located at a high level at one end of the site.

You can order bread the day before required and collect it from a small shop, the site also includes a restaurant and take-away facility. We ate at the restaurant twice and the food was very good.

The staff are all friendly and very helpful – do not hesitate to ask if you want to know anything. Wifi is quite expensive, especially as a lot of campsites either charge a nominal amount or don’t charge at all.

We enjoyed our stay and would be more than happy to return.

This site is situated on a hillside! I had to move over for a caravan coming down and could smell my clutch when taking off!, luckily no problems but be warned the access and lanes to pitches are steep.

The pitches are flat and somewhat small, well shaded and good hook ups. The site itself is large and there is plenty to do here for the kids. We visited this site in low season so didn't see many children. The facilities are very good. Good showers, good toilets and clean, Google washing area and games room. There is a small shop on site for bread, wine etc and a good piza/ restaurant near the entrance. The nearby village/town worth a visit and this is an excellent site for visiting the many towns of renown in the area and Nice is also not far away. A good site for staying and enjoying the south of France

Reviewer: Iwalani 156 reviews from this member

Having read the previous reviews we intended to head for a pitch on one of the higher terraces, but when the lady in reception saw our outfit she almost insisted we use the lowest level, as she said the pitches were larger there. We didn't want to get into an argument so went along with her suggestion. We were only staying for 3 nights so weren't too bothered about the traffic noise.

In fact, we didn't find the noise a problem. However, access to the sanitary block was up a series of irregular, narrow steps which would be impossible for anyone with the slightest mobility problem. This particular sanitary block was in fact only accessible by steps (down) even from the two higher levels. Not only that, but the lower level terrace had no lighting at all after dark, and the toilet block was also in complete darkness (when you got there you had to use a light switch) so a torch was absolutely essential. This seems to be a serious health and safety risk. The facilities themselves were fine.

The site claimed to have wifi cover but although we tried in various locations, it was very unreliable, going off all the time. As we'd paid 5 euros we complained. The first receptionist we saw was unhelpful to the point of grumpiness. A different one, on another day, was apologetic and gave us a different login to use in the internet room (actually, a small hut. ) Unfortunately this closed at 7 in the evening.

All in all, we weren't very impressed with the site. As another reviewer has said, the restaurant was expensive - and so was the bread and croissants available from reception!

This is almost like two different campsites.

We were on a huge pitch towards the top of this terraced site. There was almost room for two TTs on our pitch. We had lovely views over the site to the hills opposite. Superb sanitary block near us - unisex if that is important. Lots of lovely and varied trees for shade - though we got a bit of pollen on our canvas which a storm washed off. Washing machines and drier - buy a jeton from reception. Fresh bread etc every day - there is a bit of a shop, but it was too early in the season. Outdoor heated pool - 25 degrees. And fireflies in the evening.

We used our ACSI card so it was seriously cheap - 15 Euros a night.

But things are a bit different if you at the bottom of the site. There is road noise as has been mentioned, the sanitary block is older but still perfectly usable, but things seem a bit gloomy down there because the trees are thicker.

There is a restaurant by the entrance. We ate there once - the food was good and local, but not exactly cheap. It was well used by the locals - so the food must have been good. There is a small kids play area by the entrance and main road.

La Colle is an old village with a pedestrianised ancient centre. There is a little Casino supermarket for milk etc. Cagnes is about 10 minutes away with a Leclerc.

We did trips out to all the resorts and up to the Gorges de Verdun.

We loved it there.

While on the whole I would endorse most of the comments in the first review, and while we had a good time, my words of warning concern the noise at night/early morning:-

1. We were on the first terrace from the entrance. The road noise was - surprisingly - intense from 5am each day until about 12 midnight.

2. The refuse lorry came regularly each morning to empty the bins around the site at times between 4.00am - 6.00am.

3. We did not experience the 10pm 'curfew' being enforced: karaoke from the Les Pinedes restaurant went on until 12.30/1.00am; at other times, there was noise and disturbance from Youths over several nights; we took this up with the owner who said he experienced problems for 1-2 weeks per year with kids who drank, got loud and silly.

So, great setting/location, good pool, friendly staff, but not as relaxing as we had anticipated. Try to get a pitch further up the site where it is quieter. I sleep very heavily but was woken repeatedly by the noise. I can cope with the hassle this caused. My wife and 2 kids couldn't.
