Hi, we returned from douce quietude on thursday after spending 12 days there. Apart from the truly awful weather (only 2 full days without rain!), we had a good time and will be returning next year but going to go in July when the weather might be better and we will have a bigger chalet! The campsite itself is lovely, we haven't been on this type of holiday before and didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly suprised. Everything is really clean and well kept. The 3 pools are great but be aware that male swimmers can't wear shorts in the water and have to wear swimming trunks. The staff actually told men off in the pool - we called them the speedo police!
As far as expenses go it can be as cheap or as expensive a holiday as you like really. The best supermarket is the LeClerc which isn't too far away - (try the takeaway roast chickens from the stall outside - delicious!)We stocked up there and it was the same price as Tesco etc. The restaurant on the campsite is quite reasonable, as someone else has said, the staff are friendly but a bit inexperienced (or completely hopeless if i'm being honest!). We spent around 60 - 70 euros for 2 adults and 1 child's meals with drinks and wine. In St Raphael itself the restaurants aren't too pricey either, about the same cost as the campsite for most average restaurants. The aquapark seemed expensive compared to others in europe we have been to, i can't remember the price itself but i know it was dear.
From the airport to the campsite there are 2 tolls, 1 is 2.40 euros the other is 2.70 euros - have change ready! Also, try not to stop at the automobile museum services on the motorway. We pulled in to try and get the baby's bottle warmed and saw a few men standing round, it was only when my husband got out of the car and was followed that we realised it was some sort of pick up place! Not against that sort of thing but it's not my husbands cup of tea ha ha.
Due to the weather we really got out and about. We went to Cannes, Nice, St Maxime, St Tropez, Monaco and had great time in all of these places, especially Monaco. I can't remember the names of any restaurants but i can honestky say we didn't have a bad meal in the time we were there. Just go for the plat de jour and you can't go far wrong. Anyway, this has turned into an epic! I hope you enjoy yourselves, i'm sure you will. The place will be great in August with lots for the teenagers to do.
