“Relaxing and peaceful location, set in beautiful grounds.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

We booked this trip via The Sun £9.50 holidays as a three night weekend break. The cost included a discounted ferry crossing from Poole to Cherbourg via Britanny Ferries - the crossing was good, and the prices on the ferry weren't extortionate.

The drive from Cherbourg took about 90 minutes and we passed through pleasant countryside. The site is well signed as you approach, even though our satnav tried to take us past the entrance.

We initially drove to the main reception, where we were greeted by a friendly and helpful receptionist, who despite our attempts at Allo Allo French, spoke very good English. She organised a personalised access code for the barrier, and we proceeded to the EuroCamp tent.

We were greeted by a couple from the North East, the lady's name escapes us, but the gentleman was called Maurice. They were very helpful and Maurice showed us to our accommodation (which was listed as an Horizon chalet, but was in fact a static caravan). Despite the difference in our expectations of the accommodation, it was clean, spacious and well equipped and this did not bother us. Maurice was very helpful in giving us some tips, such as free wi-fi at McDonalds in Granville, and the best place to get groceries and Kronenbourg 1664!

The caravan had a lovely decking area to the front, with table, umbrella, loungers and BBQ - It was a shame that the weather did not permit us to use this. We can imagine in the Summer, that this would be lovely. You also could park your car right alongside the caravan.

We settled into the accommodation and later in the evening ventured into Granville (about 15 minutes drive), where we enjoyed a meal near the harbour. This was our first impression of the town, but we later discovered further up the road, the town centre with more restaurants.

We ventured to Mont St Michel (about 45 mins away) and St.Malo (1 hr away) as well as various locations nearby. As it was April it wasn't really beach weather. However, we did use the indoor pool at the site, and it was warm, clean and very popular. MEN - please note that if you wish to swim in the pool, you are not allowed to wear shorts, and required to wear swimming trunks/Speedo's. I had to buy some at the shop at the cost of €15 The same shop also sells groceries and you can order your croissants and bread for the following day. It was a little expensive, but very convenient. .

Situated onsite is a takeaway (although you have to specify a time to pick up your food) and a pub. We ordered food one evening from the takeaway - the choice was a bit limited, the price reasonable, and the food okay. We ordered a pizza, fries and a Lez-Eaux burger (the bun was burnt).

The bar was reasonably priced, and you can eat your takeaway there if you wish. The service was good and friendly. We also popped into the adjoining games room, for a couple of games of pool. Our only criticism is that the bar closed at 10pm, although we acknowledge that this was because we were out of season.

Overall, we felt that this was a nice site, conveniently located as a base for exploring Lower Normandy and Brittany, and we would recommend and return again.

We stayed at the resort with Eurocamp last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. So much so, we have booked again for August this year for 10 nights instead of 5 like last year. The mobile home looked new and was clean and tidy. My kids were 2 and 8 and both loved it. Felt very safe letting them play around the mobile home whilst we were cooking. Supermarket 5 mins away. Hired bikes and cycled to the beach which was a pleasant ride. Be careful of the tide, it comes in fast in places!
Spent most days out and about visiting sites of interest, Mont St Michael is a must! The afternoons were spent by the pool and the evenings I fished till dark whilst the kids played in the playground and the wife had some relaxation time!
Can't wait till we go back in August, hope it is still the same!

Thank you for your compliments. We are pleased to see you enjoyed your stay at Château Lez-Eaux.
We used to work with Eurocamp since a long time and are happy to see it is worth.
They deal with your accommodation and we preoccupy about everything around: swimming pools, bar, game areas…
We recently improved the services and propose now a common payment card on the campsite to make holidays easier.
We look forward to see you in August.

We stayed here in May/June 2012. We had stayed on the site the previous year and had a great holiday. However this year we were at the extreme road end of the site and there was roaring traffic noise from the lorries going past. The mobile home was, to put it briefly, well over-due for replacement, with a clapped-out sofa and misted up door. We asked to be moved but this did not happen as they accepted a new booking over moving us. I am prompted to write this review as Eurocamp have emailed me about booking another holiday. I don't think so.

This is a nice campsite with lots to do for young children. Good pool and nice setting. A car ride from the beach. Not close to restaurants. We stayed in a chalet which was roomy. It was very quiet and was nice to let the kids go off and play. kids 8 6 and 2

Just come back from a week here and what a beautiful site. Took my boys aged 10 and 13 and my 79 year old mum and it worked really well for us all. Boys loved the indoor pool and slides and the small outdoor pool. Stayed in a great keycamp caravan with great reps. Handy little shop, Geant Casino 5 mins drive away, lovely nearby towns and beaches. Kids enjoyed the ice hockey game plus pool and table football. Nice bar. Relaxing for adults and large outdoor terrace area next to the games room with a play area for little ones. Boys had a crack at fishing on the small lake but fell out before they caught anything! Small and easy to walk around. Mum could manage to walk to the pool, bar and shop without too much difficulty. Lots of Engish but also French and Dutch, good mix of caravans, static tents and own pitches (like the ones with garden sheds with own fridge/freezer, table and chairs etc - great idea for campers!). There's even a treehouse you can stay in and boys fancied the look of the Safari tent. Plenty of freedom for the kids and little ones would love the play area and bouncy castles. We had one rainy day so headed to nearby Alligator Bay (great views of Mont St Michel) which again was a hit with all ages, especially the over amourous giant turtles and very rare albino crocs. Minor criticisms? Older kids might get a bit bored of an evening with no entertainment. Open water might worry some parents of younger ones. Wifi access very limited (and 1 euro for 15 mins). Things extremely quiet once we hit the end of the season on 1 September. But on the whole a beautiful, well kept, small, relaxing, friendly site which I would definitely visit again and recommend to anyone, especially those with younger kids in tow and perhaps the grandparents too.

We stayed at this campsite for three nights in August. It was our first camping experience as a family and this site was just about perfect for us. The pitches were spacious and under lovely dappled shade. The toilet and wash facilities were very clean and well thought out. There was lots of stuff for the children (8, 5 and 4) to do - a playground, fishing lake, free kids club, bouncy castles, indoor and outdoor swimming pools. The shop on site was small but sufficient and there was a takeaway and bar for food. The campsite was lovely and quiet, with a nice mix of British and other Europeans. What we liked most about it was that because of the size we could let the kids have a bit of a wander on their own and be confident that they were okay. I'd definitely go back.

Room Tip: The pitches with water and electricity are close to the clean toilet facilities and nice and central...

Had a beautiful week here at this lovely, relaxing site. A gorgeous setting with a great indoor pool area and good beaches a short drive away. We stayed in a Keycamp caravan which was absolutely fine. Fresh baguettes / croissants available from the shop each morning and a good value take-away on site. Our only criticism was there were limited spaces available in the kids club which is a real shame as the lady running the kids club was so nice. Don't expect a full on, activity packed site - this is a traditional, relaxing site with no disco's, etc. We have 3 children under 10 and it was great for them with loads of space to run and play, free bouncy castles, play area, free fishing lake etc. I would guess that older children may find it a little dull, but is was just right for us. We will be returning next year !!
