Firstly let me say that Domaine d'Inly itself is nice, friendly and with good facilities. On site restaurant has great food, which was a pleasant surprise. The surrounding area is beautiful and the one beach we visited stunning. I should add that nearly all the other firms which operate at this site park appeared to have modern, clean accommodation on offer. So don't be put off Domaine d'Inly.
Unfortunately the same cannot be said of FRENCH FREEDOM HOLIDAYS who lease several pitches in the holiday village and provide their own filthy, squalid, wretched excuses for caravans.
The welcome you get on arrival says it all. French Freedom Holidays on site "reception" caravan looks derelict, with piles of junk dumped outside. Inside was worse; fetid and stinking of stale cigarette smoke. It was more akin to a squat, being littered with full ash trays, dirty wine glasses and filth. The comparably destitute English sales rep that emerged (at 5pm) was clearly drunk and although not verbally immediately rude to us, was extremely offensive to the senses. She was very rude to members of my family who complained. Incidentally she spoke very poor French, too. When we complained we were told that we could look elsewhere, but that the rest of the park was fully booked (this at least was true).
The caravan, mobile home, call it what you will was extremely damp inside upon arrival. I would guess the age of the caravan to be circa 30 years. The majority of soft furnishings were of similar vintage, with commensurate stains and smells. Dust, grime and fecal matter were all present and correct. The levels of cleanliness were disgusting. I have travelled extensively in third world countries, staying in budget accommodation, and yet nowhere did standards sink quite as low as those of a French Freedom Holidays caravan.
In short DO NOT BOOK YOUR HOLIDAY WITH FRENCH FREEDOM HOLIDAYS.
