Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.
We were looking for an overnight campsite on the Somme Estuary on our way back to the Tunnel. Last time we stayed in St Valery, so this time looked for a site near Le Crotoy. We have seached on a previous visit, and chose this site as it seemed not too far from the town. However, it is quite a way out, down a lane, but on the coast.
The site is flat, with grassed pitches divided by tall hedges. There are a number of mobile homes and seasonal caravans. There's a swimming pool near reception, which we didn't try, plus a restaurant/bar. A small shop in the reception building.
At reception, I was asked to leave my ACSI card, and pay in the morning before we left. We were given a key fob each to operate the barrier, the sanitary building door, and the showers. Also a copy of the tide table. We were offered a choice of 2 or 3 pitches, there weren't many empty ones. None of the 3 were very tempting, the grass was in a poor state and the ground was damp, however we chose to stay between a couple of mobile homes.
The sanitary block was a bit of a walk. It is unisex, and the door is operated by your key fob. Once inside, it looked quite new, but as is the way on lots of French sites, seemed to be unfinished. There are plenty of washbasin cubicles, some toilets, and state of the art showers which worked when you dropped in your key fob. There's a washing up and laundry basin, not plumbed in yet, and a baby change area. All quite clean. Getting out was sometimes a problem, there's a push button to release the lock, but you need both hands free to open the door. I had a scary moment at one point, and OH 'released' a lady who was locked in. Outside there is a washing up area with hot water.
Outside the site, you can walk or cycle into Le Crotoy along a cycle path edging the road. There is little convenient free parking there, so cycling is good for visiting the town. If you turn right from the campsite you can walk or cycle along the lane to the shore, not very far.
The estuary is stunning, miles of flat sand and sea vegetation. Excellent for flying kites. You can walk along the edge of the sands into the town, takes about an hour I believe. We walked out into the Bay, just take care to check on the tides beforehand.
This isn't the sort of place we would want to spend a holiday, as we prefer to be nearer a town or village, but ok for the odd night. Gives ACSI discount.

Having only buying our trailer tent last year and never been camping before, we did a couple of weekend breaks in the Uk to find our camping feet before coming to les 3 Sablières for our main 2 week summer holiday and we a little nervous for both doing our first ever camping trip out of the uk and also the first time taking the children out of the country.
Upon arriving in st firmin, we were both really pleased with what we saw. Sabines English is not quite fluent but perfectly adequate, which was settling as our French vocabulary is very small. We were quick to get our pitch and upon getting to it realised we were going to be really tight with our TT as we have a sun canopy. After a quick chat with Sabine, we were quickly given another pitch to look at which would fit our tent in perfectly.
The facilities are well maintained with a lovely pool (which we struggled to get the children out of most days) with a bar serving ice creams, drinks, and food. Also a welcomed addition for the children, they had a huge but safe trampoline and a small playground.
The showers are unisex (which apparently is quite normal for France) and cleaned very regularly. Tissue placed in each cubicle would of made it a little nicer perhaps.
The washing up area was well placed as it never seemed to get the full sun which was a welcomed chore after a full day in it.
Turning right out of the site and a few hundred yards lat will bring you to the beach, which is more of a nature reserve. Covered in greenery and home to loads of wildlife. More ideal for walks than the normal beach sunbathing and sandcastle building. Loads of horse trekking seems to happen here and the kids loved looking for crabs and shells. If you want a lovely beach, I would recommend Quend Plage which is about 15 mins drive from the campsite. Saint valery is also a lovely port village to walk around with plenty of shops and restaurants.
There are plenty of markets in the surrounding towns/villages which are detailed on the notice boards on e site and a Carrefour in neighbouring Rue which is about 10 mins drive from the site.
The site had a mobile pizzeria that turned up both Saturday evenings that we were there which made eating on our first day there after setting up much easier. On the Sunday they had a different mobile acting offering, but never used it so not quite sure what it was.
Fresh baking is available from Sabine each morning in the form of baguettes, pain eu chocolat, croissant. They also stock some of the essentials like sugar, water, etc
They held some entertainment once a week which sounded good from our tent but never attended as we had young children that like their beds after a days swimming, never disturbed them and wish we could of attended.
All in all this site was a great choice for our needs, and would really recommend it for anyone that wants to visit this area of France, my in laws have since used this site as their last stop off before coming back to the uk when taking their caravan to southern Spain.
If, like us your French is as good as non existent, I would also highly recommend a French dictionary or app to similar standards to help you get by. Most of the restaurants in the surrounding towns also only have things listed in French.

To Find Site:- In Le Crotoy follow D4 signed for St Firmin and site is well signed.
Camping Les Trois Sablieres is a few hundred metres from the Baie de Somme, although the sea is much further away! Clearly someone on the staff is very keen on flowers as there is a wide range of them around the site. There are around 90 pitches which are mainly occupied by permanent units but there are around 30 pitches available for touring units. They are of a good size and on grass although quite sandy. Some of the site roads are tight so care is required. Electric points are convenient to the pitches and are rated between 6 and 10 amps, they have CEE17 blue connectors although best to check for reverse polarity. Water points are dotted around the site. There is one central unisex toilet block which is of a good standard with seated toilets but paper is provided outside the cubicles. Access to the block is by an electronic key fob which is also used to take a shower. It seems this is a security measure to stop unauthorised people using the facilities. Most of the other facilities are grouped around reception and these include a nice pool complex next to the bar/restaurant and a small children’s play area. WiFi is also available in this area but at €2 an hour is fairly expensive. During the low season the campsite accepts the ACSI discount card.
Although we only used this campsite as an overnighter a longer stay would allow you to explore the Baie de Somme area. There are lots of opportunities for cycling off road. For shopping there is a Carrefour Market at Rue.
