 Facilities have improved; there are fewer pitches but there are now options for campers to have a 'hut' with a kitchen.

There are some beautiful cabins which vary in size. At a price, but a great option.

The bar has been renamed 'The Sunset Bar'. The prices are extortionate. The manager needs to improve his people skills

 This will be the first time we have been to Le Tedey since it was bought by a large company.

The booking system was excellent.

We first came upon this site in 2002, we didn't like the look of the sites in Lacanau Ocean and were on the way to the Talaris.

Its 12yrs since our last visit, but it still looks to have a 'back to nature' charm.

I look forwards to reviewing this place.

For the first time we'll be paddle boarding, spending more time in the water than on the bikes.

 Went here after reading the fab reviews and checking out their website.

What we expected: forest setting campsite with large, flat pitches, opening onto good stretch of clean, sandy, lakeside beach with clear waters. What we found: Huge site with very 'rustic' pitches marked out with scrubby vegetation, mostly quite small and many sloping or undulating and every pitch covered in a thick blanket of dried pine needles, cones and etc (okay, it is in a forest!). The floor covering makes for a great insect haven, esp big black ants.

Two small beach / lake access areas, mucky sand covered in tree detrius, waters edge largely reed-filled. Signs up saying no dogs (we had a dog with us who loves swimming, one reason we chose this site).

Sanitaires were modern and excellent. Most cubicles were locked but it was early-season. It would have been nice if they'd bothered to clean the giant cobwebs from the open cubicles, esp as its logical to assume they're home to giant spiders?!

The washing-up areas have only cold water so best to use sinks in the sanitaires.

We found we couldn't eat our evening meal outside as we're plagued with swarms of gnats.

It was pleasant walking around the forest on the tarmac roads.

Staff were friendly and pleasant. On arrival, they photocopied our dog's passport (first time we've ever been asked for it on a site).

As has already been mentioned in other reviews, the area is flat and good for cycling (lanes make it safe). There's a nice beach area not far from the site but, again, signs show no dogs are allowed.

We possibly had too-high hopes for this site. We'd planned to stay for a week or two but left after just one night, complete with insect bites. It's worth taking insect repellent and a breathable groundsheet to keep your bit of the forest floor a bit more insect-free. And perhaps not the best area in France to take your dog.

 Having heard so much from fellow UKC-iters about this site. Just had to visit.

And, so glad we did!

We spent a week there. Despite some rainy days and cool weather, we had a great time.

As others have said: It's a huge site. But very peaceful. Though, truth be told, the week we were there was thinly populated as it was the first week of low season.

A shame that none of the pitches near to, or bordering, the lake are EHU-able. So no EHU pitches have a view of the lake. Which is a big attraction for any campsite by a lake (or river).

The setting is within a pine forest, but not your average sap dropping low pines. These are very tall. We got no sap!, but lots of needles!

Many pitches are enormous. Oddly, some of the biggest are non EHU pitches.

The bar at the beach is excellent and charmingly staffed. Creperie attached, but, as has been observed, no restaurant on site. A real pity. There is a take-away food service beside the reception area.

The sanitaires and other facilities are top rate. Clean, modern. Very hot water (temp controls for showers). The washing up stands (separate for the sanitises) dispense the hottest water we have ever found on any campsite anywhere.

The campsite mini supermarket is the largest and best stocked campsite shop we have ever come across. Including an excellent selection of wines.

The two beaches serve as a watersport heaven. You can hire boats (catamarans, kayaks, pedalos) or launch your own. Many do. If you have a motor boat, beware the license fee payable if your motor is above certain power rating. The lake was great for paddling/sailing our own craft.

No swimming pool is necessary on site as the lake provides something somewhat larger than your normal olympic sized pool. And a very gently sloping sandy ledge for kids. Note: the lake bed is sand, no silty mud here.

The area is very well covered by a network of cycle paths. And, being the Landes. Is pretty flat with the odd undulation.

There are plenty of restaurants with 3-10 kms of the site. Lacanau Ocean (5 kms) has plenty. Though it is a modern resort, whose main attraction is surfing. The beaches are full of surfers in pretty well all kinds of weather. The rollers always in evidence. Otherwise the town is functional rather than charming.

Bordeaux is certainly worth a visit and meander round. Do the city bus tour to get your bearings. The new Monde Du Vin ultra modern designed building is well worth a visit if you have any interest in the grape and viniculture.

As others have mentioned. Visits to the famous Bordeaux wine producing chateaux is easy enough.

But. Mainly a site to relax on. Enjoy everything waterspouts can offer and a great cycling network.

We will return.

 This year we decided to come here in June and glad we did. The weather has been outstanding.

3 out of 4 sanitaire blocks open and all immaculate all the time. Probably about 80 units on site, about the same as when we come in September, probably half of these occupying the non electric lakeside pitches. The whole experience was that of peace and tranquillity, even seeing red squirrel amongst the trees.

The bar has a new owner and she is very polite and friendly. I missed having dark nights and sitting looking out over the lake and twinkling lights in the distance.

The takeaway was only open weekends. The creperie every night until 9pm.

Wifi is free over the whole site and is very good.

Again we did loads of cycling, had some lovely meals out. Crecommend

 We have been to this site the same week for the past 3 years and it never fails to delight. The standards are just the same, sanitaires immaculate. The site is quiet and peaceful at the moment but still people around to give atmosphere. The takeaway is now closed but the shop, bar and the creperie are still open at least for the next week ( to 16th Sept) The weather for the past 3 years has been the same, warm, blue skies 26c to 33c. The lake is lovely and warm too.

We probably will be back again next year.

Reviewer: Dav8 6 reviews from this member

 We spent a week at Le Tedey in August 2015.

It is a huge campsite and you definitely get the most out of it by taking your own bikes. We had a standard pitch near the long beach (not the beach where the bar and boat hire is; the other beach). And we loved it. It was our first camping holiday with our children (6. 5 and 3. 5 at the time) and they had a fantastic time here.

Although it is huge, the site is really quiet.

The shower/toilet block was brand new and had children's toilets, too, which gave them a greater degree of independence.

The site supermarket is well-stocked, the pitch was a good size, the take-away food was good.

Children liked the playground, and we also played badminton, table tennis and boules. We never had to wait long to use any of these facilities.

Everything was clean.

We actually spent most of our time on the campsite beach or out on our bikes. There are loads of cycle paths nearby (a reason we chose the site) and we did a couple of short rides and one all-day outing where we cycled to Lacanau Ocean and back on a circular route. Our 6 year-old was knackered at the end of it, but he did manage the whole thing.

The sea on the coast is quite rough, I wouldn't recommend it as a beach holiday destination for young children if you want to swim. But the campsite is on Lac Lacanau which is essentially a huge outdoor swimming pool. It's calm and lovely to swim in.

My one criticism would be that the bar doesn't serve food. We went there and got crepes form the crepe take-away next door to the bar for our wedding anniversary (glam!). The kids loved it, but we had to queue a long time for the crepes and then again to get sweet ones for dessert, so it ended up being a long evening and the kids were starving by the time they ate. So get there early if you want to have crepes for dinner!

Lacanau Ocean was quite busy in the daytime, but loads of ice-cream and food places near the seafront.

We are going to Spain this summer, but plan on going back to Le Tedey next year. We felt that there was lots more scope for more bike rides and we understand why so many families seemed to be returning there for the umpteenth time!

Reviewer: Paul@julie 58 reviews from this member

 We left this site today after a week stay. It is the best, most tranquil site we have ever stayed on and No 1. In our top site list.

Site in tall pine trees with dappled shade. Pitches large. Over 100mtrs sq and non electric pitches larger although when the site is full in summer there will be some smaller pitches on the edges of the site. 3 sanitaires 2 of which are brand new, immaculately clean, loos are proper ones but with no seat or loo paper. Take away very god but closed on 4/9, shop and creperie open until the 9/9 and the best bar ever bordering the lake with views to die for unfortunately will also be closing around 9/9. The cycle paths from the site are fantastic. A spiders web of paths going everywhere. The area is big with surfers as the beaches and big waves are only 6kms away. The whole area did not appear to have a very touristy air and that was great for us, still people around to give atmosphere but not hoards of folk. All in all I would give this site 10/10 and will definitely be returning next year. J x

 We have been going to this campsite for about 5 years now, and it's a lovely place to stay. The campsite is on lake Lacanau and is served well by public transport and cycle routes, especially to the surfing resort of Lacanau Ocean.

The facilities have been upgraded this year and are great - no problems getting a shower etc. We took our speedboat this year. Although the slipway on the site is a little shallow (fine for sail or small inflatables) there are plenty of other 'free' slipways around the lake. There is a water ski area (no towable inflatables allowed) next to the campsite. Beware of the navigation charge for the lake - 120 for a week for anything over 100hp.

The pitches bordering the lake are much in demand. The other pitches are set in the pine forest, so can be a little overcast.

There is a bar, shop, take away and bakery on site. There's no swimming pool, but the lake more than makes up for this.
