 From the moment we arrived, Rob and family were very welcoming.

Large site with 2 large lakes.

Very clean toilet and separate hot powerful shower.

Rob was very kind to lend his TP Wi-fi router so we could use the internet.

We will definitely stay here again.

 A very British site. Bread in the morning is advertised as "French Baguettes"!

Warm welcome from owners and guests.

Very noisy the first night. Bar open until midnight and noisy games of pool continued until 1. 30 am. Had a word with the owner the following day and the noise was not repeated.

Although I wasn't overly successful fishing I would go back to try and catch some of those big carp.

 Just spent over 3 weeks here for my wife's 70th birthday treat. She turned down everything to come here because it is so tranquil, laid back and friendly. Garry and Jan make you feel so welcome and their total aim is to ensure you enjoy your holiday with zero stress.

The 7 acres of lakes, woodland and pathways are as natural as it gets. The fishing in the two lakes is to die for with almost guaranteed catches of big carp, nice tench and roach.

There are 5 toilets and showers dotted around the site, all of which have really powerful water supplies and hot as well. There is a 6' elsan disposal point on the drive into the site as well as the conventional one on site.

If you want a static caravan they have four they rent out at lower than your average prices.

Space for RV's, motorhomes, caravans and tents is almost limitless with several 10amp EHU points in the two main locations. You can choose to be next to the lake or in a 100 sq metre emplacement. The hardest thing to do on this site is. To leave it at the end of your stay.

It is situated in an ideal position to visit Blaye, Saints, Jonzac, Cognac, Montreaux (station 2 miles away) and Royan.

Supermarket, Bank, vet, Restaurants, Fuel and main shopping area in town is less than 2 miles away.

 Having read all the reviews about how helpful the owner is, we weren't disappointed! Gary made us very welcome and even lent us his car to go to get gas and offered to take is to the railway station to go to Bordeaux.

The site setting is lovely and we were lucky to have some winter sun to see it at it's best.

As it was low season some facilities weren't available but we really enjoyed our stay, as did our dog!

Reviewer: Anneskyblue 1 review from this member

 Just returned from our first trip to France with our Motorhome and small car.

We started off at Twin Lakes and settled in very quickly. The place is a haven for anglers and we wished we had brought our fishing rods with us. We were met by the lovely Jan who runs the site with Gary. They also have Helen and Tony who help with keeping this lovely site a treat to be on.

The pitch we had was right by the lower lake and it was heaven. The toilets and showers were good and had plenty of hot water. So peaceful and made our first stay ideal. Helen and Jan suggested we might like to visit Blaye where they hold a large market. When we got there it was a lovely little town which we enjoyed looking round. They also have a Citadel which we explored. Fab day out. We only stayed for two nights and then went on to other places. On our way home we decided to come back and stay for four nights.

During this time we got out and about more. Lots of pretty villages to see and we also went to Bordeaux for a day. Did the tour bus and got to see this lovely city. Twin Lakes made our first trip to France perfect. We will definitely be returning in the future. Our huge thanks to Jan, Gary, Helen and Tony.

 As you enter this campsite the first shock is the welcome! You are offered tea, coffee, cold drink (NO charge). Then you are escorted to your pitch; after EVERYONE is sure you are happy you will be offered extension leads, water hoses - indeed you name it you will be offered assistance for it!

And not once will anyone ask for your money! YOU book in when it suits you! YOU move pitch if YOU want to!

The facilities are clean, the water warm & the washing machine available by asking for the key.

There is entertainment every evening - for those who wish to participate.

Bread is available to order for delivery each morning although there are supermarkets nearby, (a bike ride away for those without a car, as is the post office. The local populas are friendly and very welcoming

In short; we have camped in a motorhome for over 30 years and this is the friendliest, most laid back site you will EVER encounter We paid 25 Euros per night with electric hook-up & worth e very penny!

 We arrived at twinlakes in July 2013 and we just didn't want to leave, welcomed with a cup of tea ( free of charge) we could park up anywhere, face anyway we liked pay when we left, in fact the site is the most laid back site we have ever stayed on. The shower block was spotless and free, the pool was lovely and clean and free The bar was open every night and afternoons, The Wednesday night quiz was the funniest quiz I have ever been too and they had two pig roasts while we where there, very reasonably priced to, The other half had a super time fishing most afternoons and that was included in the price too. We are going back in 2014 and can't wait.

 Very warm welcome from Gary as we arrived on the campsite with an offer of tea or coffee.

We have 8. 5 metre motorhome and Gary gave us a free opportunity to pitch anywhere on a large field which had both electric hook up and water supply.

The campsite is very clean and family run - all staff were pleasant.

Free wifi within bar restaurant area.

My main interest on the campsite was the carp fishing.

No1 Lake can be difficult but patience is a must if you want to catch big carp. Double figure numbers up to 30lb plus.

No2 This lake is really stuffed with carp, from min. 3 meters out from the bank you will catch 8 to 10 ib.

I was using boiles strawberry flavour and carp did take them everytime.

I would recommend Twin Lakes to anyone wishing to fish for carp with no big payouts to fish.

Please bring mats and slings plus scales if you really like carp fishing.

The village/shops are close by.

Reviewer: North Villa 4 reviews from this member

 This is a very much a fisherman's camp site with organised social evenings in the bar at night. Most people seem to know one another and the owner and appear to be regulars. The campsite is very large and with the opportunity to pitch anywhere. The site was fairly busy when we were there. Although the site is large there is only one electric supply post next to the limited main shaded area. This area was taken up when we were there and as we had a dog who needed shade we had to pitch over in the far corner by trees. This meant doing without electric hook up. Two rather old extra extension cables were offered to us to use with our own 20m one but we declined and due to the heat decided to stop two days and then move north for cooler weather.

The good thing about this site is the large area to roam around in which is great if you have a dog. The site is run in a very relaxed way and owner is welcoming and friendly.

The swimming pool is small and was taken up by two or three families with children all day, also a small children's play area. The toilets and washing facilities are a bit rudimentary and the boiler packed up while we were there so there was no hot water on one day. The door to the boiler room was broken and the boiler looked as if it was on its last legs.

There is a more organised caravan and motor home area with hedged areas. There is a fairly fast road nearby which gets busy in the morning.

Reviewer: Stiggersu 1 review from this member

 This was a friendly site, toilets were clean and comfortable, unlimited hot water. Real family feel and although it was our 1st time, everybody seemed to have visited before, we were welcomed whole heartedly. We were given the benefit of the local knowledge, area, restaurants etc. Which enhanced the offer.

It is a small sight but there was something for everyone each night.

The fishing offer is excellent however not being a fisherman, does not exclude from the enjoyment of the sight or the area. Our 8 year old son, put Twinlakes, above Futurescope in his list of favourite things on holiday. We're certainly putting it on our list to revisit.

Thanks to Garry and the crew for a great time.
