This small and compact camp-site is 10 minutes drive from the centre of Antibes and is located on the D6007. Antibes, Juan le pins and Cannes are all within reasonable driving distance and the camp-site is next to the train station 'Biot' with connections to the above mentioned destinations.
The owner greeted us at the front entrance with a warm smile and walked us to the camping area to select a pitch for our tent. We paid upfront for one night at 20.00 Euros; quite expensive considering the age of the facilities and lack of services available, however this cost was clearly for the location rather than the quality of the the camp-site facilities.
The washblock was old and tired, with large sinks for cleaning, washing and drying, along with showers, squat toilets and bathing sinks.
The camp-site is set under a canopy of trees providing respite from the midday sun. Located next to the main coastal road, the smell of exhaust and and the sound of vehicles was very prevalent along with the smell of stagnant water and foul sewage coming from the nearby river.
Our pitch was large enough to take a small tent and car, the ground was hard baked and bald, and due to the nearby standing water mosquito's descended on us as the night drew in.
A restaurant at the front entrance sells all manner of fast foods, however we didn't eat here as there are many good quality restaurants to choose from in Antibes.
The walk into Antibes took a good half hour, however the train is just a short ride and lands you near the city centre. The beach along this coastal strip is made of pebbles probably to provide reinforcement from the strong coastal tides.
In conclusion this camp-site is great for 1-2 nights stay, however I wouldn't recommend this site for long stays or people with small children due to the lack of facilites and the noise from the road and bad smells from the river. If you just need a place to take a quick pit stop en-route to other places then this is ideal.
