This campsite is in a great location, but found the site itself disappointing. It has to be said that the 300ft dune on your doorstep is both fascinating and great fun for kids, you can also see fantastic sun sets from the top.
We visited 10-17 Aug with 4 adults and 3 young children (9,7,5). Although we had booked up for two pitches 9 months in advance they could not find us two pitches side by side. Eventually the staff found a place that allowed us to be just about opposite each other.
We did find the reception staff very pleasant but seemed to lack any local area knowledge or the ability to offer advice on places to visit.
The toilet and shower blocks were not particularly clean or well kept and although they advertised opening times they were not that relevant, as the cleaning staff started to clean the blocks (closing them) at around 8am just when people most needed them. Some of the pitches are very close to the blocks and I guess some people were kept awake by the very loud flushing French type and English type toilets.
This campsite is NOISY. The site notice says strict silence between 10pm and 7am which is not adhered to. Noise is partly down to the entertainment on site (which on occasion went on until 1am) and partly down to groups of young lads / girls continuing the party. People playing music was constant and there was no noise control by the staff on site. I would not put this down as a family campsite.
The bar and food available were fine if a little expensive. However the camp shop was excellent had everything you needed.
This campsite is very close to Arcarchon, which we all really loved, a great atmospheres, loads to do in and around the surrounding area, this we guessed is why there was so much local traffic about at this time of the year.
Would definitely visit this area again, but not the campsite due to not being that good on sleep deprivation skills.
