We booked thinking that since it was previously a castel site it would be good quality. Good points are: 1) bouncy castles were up all the time, kids liked being able to go on and off when they liked. 2) mobile home premium that we had was of a good enough standard and clean. 3) due to high turnover at...

The location for this site is slightly wrong. The place is in Avrille near Longville Sur Mer. We had a fab two weeks there in our caravan. We were on the older part of the site which has more shade. We did not suffer with the noise, most evenings the organised entertainment was done by 11pm. I can imagine if...

Not for young families. The main issue, aside from noise is shade. No shade or privacy on the pitches as vegetation was not established. Crammed in - hearing every single word, snore, etc of the neighbours. There is no shade at the pool or the 'bar' area. Given we were in tents and the temperature s in excess 30 degrees...

We spent three weeks on this campsite,and were very pleased with what we found. The campsite itself was very spacious and very clean. The pitch sizes were very generous. We stayed on the newer part of the site. Noise was not a problem for us. Certainly during the day we heard little, on a night usually Mon-Thurs evenings we could...

We spent 2 weeks here. Although the facilities were clean and ample, the rest of the brochure description is less than precise. You could relax between the hours of 0100 and 0900 if that is all you need but the music starts most nights at 9pm and stops after midnight. It is loud and can be heard clearly anywhere on...

I was there high season, but the camping areas were hardly used. Mobile homes etc all seemed full. I stayed with my two boys, 5 and 6 for 3 nights in a small tent, which was lost in the large camp spaces. We didn't use the electric, and to be charged an extra 11 Euros for "administration" on top of...

We booked this site as it was advertised as good for young children. I would disagree. We camped in a grande emplacement which was large and more spacious than I have previously experienced elsewhere but it had no shade at all. The temperature was in the high 30's and the lack of shade made it very challenging at times, especially...

This campsite promotes itself as a peaceful setting for young families - IT IS NOT, and please don't be drawn in by the website as it is very misleading. In general, the site is clean & tidy with good facilities, (although interestingly Castels class it as 5 star when local signs state it is 3 - perhaps because of issues...

We stayed in one of the new wooden lodges mentioned by one of the other reviewers. (A "Habana") We were there two weeks at the beginning of August 2012. In terms of positives - - the staff are very friendly and helpful, especially the girls who work on reception - the outdoor pool is excellent for families although does get...

Stayed for two weeks on a premium camping pitch pitch in July/August 2011 and are here again August 2012. In the year since we were here the ownership has changed and I feel the site has really changed too. First the plus points - Wifi is much better and there are some fun water slides for children of around six...

“I would avoid a Habana and go for one of the other mobile homes, unless you don't mind about them being a bit squashed together. The premium caravan / tent pitches are huge and have a full set of hookups in terms of water, electricity and waste.”
