 Small, very friendly campsite, laid out in terraces with extremely large pitches which suited us down to the ground. Large enough for us to pitch our BL6, park the car (with lots of space to spare around it), pitch the event shelter, plus have outside space to sit in the sun, plus still. Play boules on our pitch next to the roadway, massive.

We were on the top terrace, so only one car occasionally going passed us. Maybe a little too quiet for some who like people watching but for us it was perfect. Morning coffee sitting outside watching the rabbits meandering around was absolutely divine.

Having teens with us I can't comment on how child friendly everything was, my lot loved the pool which was usually quiet when they went there and very neatly kept by the owners. They liked the ping pong and the wifi (although not light speed) they managed. My husband enjoyed coffee in the mornings at the bar after going out to get our pain au raisins and croissants from the local village. We enjoyed moules frites night and were thankful that we'd decided to drive down to the marque tent as once there we had an almighty thunder and lightening storm.

The only downside was the toilet block, although I saw several staff members cleaning at various times during the day and can't fault them on their efforts, the whole block needs updating. The lights are on a timer basis and I ended up using the disabled shower area (which has the light switch inside the oversized cubicle) its quite disconcerting having to wrap yourself in a towel to nip out to push the light switch to be able to continue showering with light. There is another room with showers but I found them too claustrophobic as the ceiling was quite low.

The washing up areas are outside and always had hot water and were clean. Couple of deep sinks too for clothes washing, although they have got a washing machine which takes Euros and counts down on a timer. Load your washing/powder THEN put your money in, as they had a notice saying if the machine runs out of time it stays locked.

We did some sightseeing, Pic de Nore, Carcassonne, Castre, Beziers. Mazamet was the main place to go for our evening meals and not very touristy. In fact, most places we went I was wondering where everyone was, until we got to Carcassonne or more accurately Cite de Carcassonne which was teeming with people so much that I had to carry the dog so he wouldn't get trampled. Luckily, my husband found us a quiet spot to re-group (nice coffee and a quiet garden) before heading back out to the masses to continue our visit. My lot went kayaking one day and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

One thing that did spoil our trip was the Fete at the nearby village Albine, travellers with their caravans, lorries and dogs camped on the green area a week before the Fete is due to start, and one night music was playing extremely loudly until 4. 30am which was totally ott in my view. I like a fete as much as the next person but it was a small carnival really, dodgems and other rides not what you think of as a true fete. The loud music was on our penultimate night, we decided to leave the next day to avoid rain that was forecast but also to ensure that I could sleep. Nothing at all the campsite can do in these circumstances and while I would dearly love to return to this campsite one day, I shall avoid the last week in July.

 Just returned from 3 weeks on this site. Highly recommended. I would agree with everything said before, except that we found the campsite owners exceptionally friendly and helpful (maybe it's changed hands?) and saw no insects in the wash/toilet areas.

It's a peaceful site, well laid out and well thought out. Next to the lovely pools (NO SWIMMING SHORTS!) are two table tennis tables (bats and balls provided), badminton net (again, equipment provided) petanque pitch and play area. Bread, croissants, etc are delivered daily (except Mondays) and the owners sell icecreams, coffee etc. Reception also provides a weather forecast, album of places to visit, brochures on local attractions - and invaluable advice!

Pitches are in wooded terraces - with fabulous views from ours - two pitches to a hedge marked area. We got our massive Arkansas 7 on our pitch - I would guess pitch is 10m sq. Every pitch has its own tap!

The area is national park, so no charcoal BBQs. We took a gas one, but owner provides a permanent BBQ area, and it looked like he also provided charcoal and lighter fluid.

Wildlife was abundant - literally hundreds of lizards, along with rabbits, field mice, bats and owls. We even saw eagles one day.

Nearby Mazamet (about 15 mins) has a vast Leclerc hypermarche, which also serves very good food (not at all similar to British supermarket cafes). Opening hrs for hypermarche are 8.30am - 8pm, Monday to Friday.(Can't remember Saturdays, and it doesn't open Sundays)Cafe opens 1145-1400 and 1845-2100.

The Med is one and a half hours away, allowing for traffic. Campsite owners recommend Valras Plage. We liked Serignan - quieter! Carcassonne is a must see, though busy and touristy. We also enjoyed Lake Raviege - take out a pedallo!

Anything I've missed?. Oh, toilet roll provided, continental electric points in washrooms - which are unisex, but wash cubicles available. Always clean. Washing machine takes 1 euro coins. Baby changing table in washrooms. Owners are English so easy to phone and book if your French is like mine! We're a family of five (all qualifying as adults) with tent, no electric. Cost was 36 euros per night, including visitor tax.

I think that about covers it. Again, no reservations in recommending it.

 We stopped off at this site for two nights on our return run from Spain.

It is run by a British couple, and is set up in the mountains, surrounded by truly stunning scenery. The site is arranged in tiers, so feels quite private, as you can't really see the campers on the tier above and below, only your immediate neighbours.

It has a really nice pool (no swimming shorts) and a nice play area for the kids, which is just along from the pool. There is also a little bar / coffee shop next to the pool area so you can get a drink.

There were a few British people there when we went, which the kids liked as they found a little boy to play with, but there were other nationalities as well.

The weather was stunning, with perfect blue skies and about 40 degrees, even though we could see clouds in the distance, they just seemed to skitter around us and never above.

The only negatives for me were that although the toilet / shower block was clean it was very heavy on the insect life, and I hate spiders etc. However, I coped, albeit a bit nervously, and no-one else seemed bothered. Also, the owner occasionally seemed a bit offish (eg shouted at my son for wearing shorts in the pool - not my son's fault as I hadn't realised, but it upset him a little.) If it weren't for these two things I would happily go back to this site, as the campsite setting is so beautiful and peaceful. Waking up in the morning and the first thing you see is the wooded mountains set against a perfect blue sky was just fantastic, as was listening to the owls at night and spotting the little lizards shooting about.

There is nothing much within walking distance, but the nearby town of Mazamet is lovely, and there is also a man who runs a roadside caravan cafe at the bottom of the road - we arrived late on a Sunday evening, just as it was getting dark, and hadn't eaten, so decided to get something to eat before pitching the tent in the dark (not ideal!) He served the most fantastic sausage & chips, which you could eat at the tables of a little roadside clearing, but off proper plates and with proper cutlery!

Despite the couple of negatives, this was my favourite site - just so beautiful.
