To update my previous review. Naturist cards no longer required & camping pitches are being lost to rental units year on year. It is getting to stage where booking is required Jul/Aug to get your pitch of choice but outside of these time there is plenty of availability. I would agree it is a bit love/hate with CHM. If you love it like we do then you do tend to forgive the roughness of the site. It is what it is. A huge commercial naturist site with a beachside location & no shortage of campers at peak period. Outside peak it is quiet & peaceful. The cleaners do find it hard to keep up when the site gets really busy. Not all the sanitary facilities have hot water & the best pitches nearest to the beach do not have ehu.

The plus side is that it's the combination of sea sun & beach that gives CHM the unique atmosphere & ambience that it has. If you can put up with a site that is mostly sand, rough tracks around the site & difficulty of getting a level pitch near to beach you will love the naturist experience you get from CHM.

Very Tired site! The welcome you get in reception is underwhelming being left standing at the desk for 15 minutes until they can be bothered to deal with you, and the whole experience goes downhill from then onwards. Do not take your dog as the place is NOT dog friendly. We were very pleased to leave and move to another site.

This is a very large site in a wooded area on the Atlantic shore. It has a lot of facilities and shops compared to many sites. However it has a dated and slightly rundown look. When we visited there was a cost for wi-fi.

Many of the pitches are on a sandy base and this could be a problem for the unwary.

Some might like the site size but other might find it all a bit overwhelming.

Overall somewhat underwhelmed but does provide the essentials with access to beach.

Staff OK but booking in was very slow and they were not well informed on local amenities. Pitches on small side and some sandy. Overall the site did seem a bit jaded. The Wi-Fi provision was expensive and not at all flexible.

Compared to most sites good shopping facilities. Swimming pools good especially one close to beach. Beach good when tide is in.

What a great site this is. Everything you need in one location. We didn't feel the need to leave site at all during our holiday. You can do as little or as much as you want. Plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained. All facilities were spotless and friendly helpful staff. We took our dog and the staff helped us organise our visit to the vet before our return journey. Will definitely be returning again next year.

We have been visiting this Naturist site for many yrs. A Naturist(INF)licence is required but if you don't have one they will be happy to sell you one! Huge site, probably over 1 kilometre square! Its good to bring bikes to get around the site(bike hire available)& there are cycle tracks all over the whole area. It has direct acess to the sandy naturist beach which is over 1km long so plenty of room. There are 2 lifeguarded areas for swimming & on this & any part of the French SW coast it is dangerous to swim outside lifeguarded sections due to strong currents. The whole coast is popular with surfers.

Many pitches get booked in peak season & there are a lot of permanently sited caravans but there are always vacant pitches & you will always get in on spec even in Jul/Aug peak. The surface is sand so bring long sand pegs for tent/awning. I would say only about half the available pitches have EHU & access for caravans/motorhomes can be difficult on some parts of the site but there are plenty of hardstanding pitches as well. The staff will pull you out for free with a 4X4 if you get stuck in the sand! Although the pitches are sand many are covered with pine needles that makes them ok to drive on & the access roads are ok. The site has plenty of trees & you can usually find a shaded pitch if required.

The toilets/showers are dotted about the site, the worst ones have now been upgraded & are generally fine but check those nr you before you pitch up. Usually cleaned twice daily. Bring your own toilet paper, as with many French sites.

There is an excellent outdoor 'fun' pool complex with slides etc in front of site nr beach, opened a couple of yrs ago, it has plenty of lifeguards. The old pool on another part of the site is still open & is ideal for those who want to do 'proper' swimming.

Plenty of organised children's activities but all in French language tho. Although the campers are from all over Europe including plenty of Brits the site retains a very 'French' atmosphere but the reception staff do speak English. The site has a large 'Centre commercial' with supermarkets & restaurants/takeaways & it is possible to buy all you need without leaving the site, but obviously local supermarkets will be cheaper. There is an Aldi nearby but for a large Carrefour or LeClercs you need to drive at least 12miles.

The weather Jul/Aug is generally sunny mid-high 20s with cool sea breezes, very agreeable to those who don't like stifling heat. Rain is usually at night, can be heavy & you need to choose your pitch carefully on this undulating site, especially with a tent.

The nearby village of Montalivet has a large daily market & loads of restaurants/shops & the larger town of Soulac is about 10miles away. The whole area is touristic but not overcrowded.
