 We chose this site from the ACSI book for an overnighter on our slow journey south. It is situated within walking distance of the beach, on the far side of the town. The grounds are attractive, lots of trees around.

We were allocated a pitch at the back of the site, nice and shady. The sanitary block was not far away, very clean. Lots of mobile homes, obviously a popular holiday centre. The pool was lovely, once we found how to access it, not from the campsite grounds but on the opposite side to the reception building.

We enjoyed our stay here and would be happy to use the site again for the odd night.

 We stayed on this site for 5 nights towards the end of the season to catch up with friends who were already on the site. The member of staff on reception on our arrival was very friendly and helpful. One of the 3 loo blocks had been shut, the one we used was always clean and always had hot water. We could choose our pitch and we got a large pitch others were smaller and they are divided by hedges. There are loads of lodges of different types on the site and in season I would imagine it gets rammed. The swimming pool is covered and although not big is good. There is a bar and snack area ( not used). There seem a lot for younger children to do with bouncy castles and a large play area.

The great thing is it's only a short walk to a massive beach which has disabled access.

The small village had a couple of tat shops still open one hotel and one bar but you have to drive/ cycle/walk to either Longville or Tranche to reach a supermarket.

The site is in the ACSI book.

 We stayed in one of the new Natura tents which was spacious and well equipped. No running water but tap just outside and toilet block only a minute's walk away. Good lighting, power points, fridge/freezer, microwave and gas hob. The canvas covering is only laced to the wooden floor boards so found we had quite a few bug visitors compared to using our own tent with sewn in ground sheet. Nothing too big or scary though! Lots of trees on site making it shady and a sense of screening though the pitches were close together.

Campsite staff were friendly and coped brilliantly with our minimal French. Kids playarea was nice and had sandy floor, We used the kids club for our 5 & 6yr olds and they had a great time, again despite not speaking French. The pool and splash park are lovely but changing area minimal, most people walked back and forward in their costumes and towels. When we has minor issues with tent equipment staff were really prompt in sorting it out. Toilet blocks ran out of paper early in the day so need to take your own.

Location for the beach is amazing, few mins walk and long and sandy, good for swimming, body boarding and rock pooling at low tide. However it was stormy while we were there and hundreds of jelly fish in water, stingy everybody. The lifeguards spent their time giving people cream to put on the stings. Sadly also it rained at some point of every day of our 10 day stay so we weren't able to get the most from the location.

Only problem we had was that there is no indoor communal area during the day, so when it rains consistently you are confined to your tent. Would have been nice to have a covered area by the pizza/drinks shack so we could have played cards in a different environment. Evening entertainment started too late for our kids so can't comment except to say that we could only just here the disco beats from where we were at far edge of site.

Had a couple of good days out at Le Chateau des Aventurers - great for whole family and Parc des Dunes which was fab for kids and not bad for us too :-)

 We had a very successful holiday here - 2 weeks with 2 children (7 and 5). Lots of things for children to do on site - great pool, trampoline, bouncy castle and playground as well as a kids club that looked fine, although we didn't use it.

Some entertainment came to the campsite in the early evenings - while we were there, there was a rock climbing wall, a circus act and a bungee jump. All were free and great fun.

There is a bar just opposite the entrance to the site which was open late every night but we didn't hear anything from our pitch.

Also, useful were the laundry room and freezer for ice blocks.

There are 3 separate blocks for loos, showers, washing up etc. All of which are unisex and none of which have loo paper so remember to take your own. There were 2 cubicles with baby baths and 2 blocks had basin cubicles as well as showers. All facilities were adequate, but one block was considerably nicer than the others with 2 family size shower rooms. All blocks were cleaned regularly.

The pitches were closer together than we've known in England, which made the site feel a little busy, but hedges have been planted between each pitch and these are beginning to give a little privacy. One point to note is that the pitches were not particularly big. We found the French had much smaller tents that we generally see in England and the pitch size reflected this. Our tent would certainly not have fitted on some of the pitches but the staff were very happy to accommodate us and we had a lovely grassy site. Some pitches were dusty than others, some shady, some less so, some on the main paths through the site, others in quieter areas, but you can specify what sort of area you'd like to be in when you book.

We met only a few Britsh people and 2 or 3 Dutch families, the rest were French.

The beach was about 5 - 10 minutes walk from our tent and beautiful - rock pools at low tide and acres of sand. Perfect for surfing - waves fine for beginners and we saw lots of adults having fun too.

On the road to the beach are a number of shops selling the usual beach paraphernalia, but also a great bakery, newspaper shop and pizza place.

You could hire bikes and there were lovely cycle paths through the woods to local towns or other beaches.

We had two great outings within 20 minutes drive - a chateau with a pirate trail and questions to answer, riddles to solve etc. All in English as well as French and busy with children of all ages. Also the Indian Forest which seemed similar to Go Ape but bigger than any I've been to. Amazing high rope courses for all abilities and from 5 years upwards. It also had a large area with bouncy castles and other inflatables.

There are plenty of other more hectic sites in the area, but we chose this for its lack of karaoke and evening entertainment and were very pleased all round. Staff were very helpful and the site had just been awarded a third star at the end of July.

 The campsite was overwhelmingly busy at the time we were there. The staff are generally helpful and will put the extra effort in speaking English. The facilities (especially the shower) were inadequate but generally clean though. The site was equally VERY dusty and we were very unfortunate to be allocated a pitch near a junction of a the main roads that run through the campsite. There are lights almost everywhere and you cannot expect a pitch black night.

There are lots of shops in the vicinity of the campsite and the food is good (go for the mussels).

The swimming pool is for children, very shallow and you cannot swim with your shorts, you have to wear proper swimsuit. I have rated the site as 4 for child friendliness as the staff (normally young) tends to drive very fast through the campsite with their electric vehicles.
