The site was good in parts, not so good in others. The good parts included Magali in reception, she was friendly, helpful and efficient, Our caravan site was right on the seaside, wonderful views every day. The site is very well organised and it was comforting to meet the patrolling security guard every night. Not so good was the washroom... More

Having discovered this campsite in 1996 we have returned many, many times. We spend our (almost) entire summer holiday here and have done for the last ten years. This year we stayed for 37 nights, every one of them was spent relaxing in peace and calm. Campsite rules include being quiet between midnight and 7 a.m., a rule that we... More

Okay - so I've read several reviews: the good, bad and ugly BUT our first visit here was in 1996 with four (very young) children. This year is our first holiday (sans enfants) and, I have to say, at the moment we would not go anywhere else, despite having invested many weeks of several holidays (before we arrived here for...

We were pretty desperate when arriving at Caifornie after finding many sites full and was relieved and surprised to find plenty of room here. The reception staff were very helpful and freindly, the site has fairly large pitches with plenty of shade (we had a tent) with only a short walk to two small beaches it was ideal for us.... More

I was surprised to see some of the negative comments on here, as we had a great time at Californie and really can't fault it? Great location, great entertainment and super staff - especially Nathalie on reception, who made us feel very welcome and looked after! Facilities were also very well maintained and clean. I suppose that people always tend... More

Large and relatively private pitches, good mix of sun and shade. Very dusty, lots of ants. Clean facilities - maintained and cleaned 3 - 4 times daily so sometimes not able to use. Need to walk to other blocks. However, pretty good. Shower pressure pretty hit and miss!! Sometimes no pressure and no heat. Big queues for showers at times.... More

We have come back from a great 2 weeks at this campsite. We booked it VERY last minute as we wanted the sunshine not on offer on the Vendee. They warned us our pitch was very sunny and small- we managed to fit our long 8 man tent and a4.5mx4.5m gazebo on it- admittedly a tight squeeze to get the... More

This was our 4th year camping here, and I have to say we felt rather let down...Whilst we still enjoyed the location and the size of the campsite, the facilities were not kept up to scratch....the toilets were not cleaned as often as they were last year and there never seemed to be any toilet paper....the waiting staff at the...

I can't believe some of the comments that people have written about this site....this year will be our family's third year camping at Californie Plage, we have enjoyed ourselves immensely....the one comment about there not being a beach - think you got the wrong campsite......Californie has two small beaches which are fantastic for families with young children as it means...
