“Fantastic campsite”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We have just returned after staying 8 nights in our tent on a comfort pitch. This is probably the best campsite we have stayed on and we have been to a few over the years!

The location and campsite is excellent with plenty to entertain our young kids. Facilities are very clean and well maintained.

The shop has a limited selection but there is a supermarket about 5 minutes drive up the road. Fresh bread etc is available from the shop each morning. There is a take away which was surprisingly good especially if you arrive late and are trying to set up camp in the dark!

There is a bar that stays open reasonably late but isn't too loud or rowdy. During our stay there was live music on two nights which we could hear from the porch of our tent whilst enjoying a glass of the local wine, perfect.

Swimming pool and play areas are good. Quiet roads and tracks near by for running and cycling.

All in all a great site, although it should be noted that the weather was very good and often puts a more positive outlook on things. We have been so impressed that we are already talking about camping there again next year!

One minor critism (and it is minor), whilst the washroom/toilets are very clean and cleaned regularly throughout the day, there is no hand soap so be sure to take some with you!

Relaxing for us as the kids aged 7&9 made friends and gave us time to relax. We took our own tent which was brilliant value and the drive from Calais was straightforward. We arrived on a Wed and left on a Sat so the drive back was busier and we will avoid weekend travelling next time.

We stayed with our 3 kids at one of the campsite's standard 2 bedroom chalets. The chalet itself was well equipped, we ended up in one converted for disabled (which we had not requested) - they said it gave us more room (I think the bathroom and one bedroom were bigger but the veranda is much smaller as the footprint is the same as the standard chalet). As we are a family of 5 we decided this was fine.
We used the washers and dryers and I would say that the cleanliness of the toilet and showering facilities for camping are v. good (as you'd expect from a Castels site). Ditto the swimming pools.
My only gripe would be that we were turned away from the kids club twice (third time lucky but they didn't want to use it more than once) as it was full. I did query at reception how many kids they could have but she didn't tell me. I know that another Castels site (Anse du brick) has a max of 20 kids and there was no where near that many at the time - about 10, if that.
So if you are not worried about having a kids club then I would highly recommend this site. Some people turned up extra early to be sure of getting in.
The takeaway has lovely pizzas, kids enjoyed the bouncy castles and playground.

We stayed in a 4 person chalet in June as part of a Brittany ferries package via Cherbourg, about 90 minutes easy driving away. The site is part of the Castels chain which we have used before and this one didn't disappoint. Chalet was clean as was everywhere else on the well-tended site. The shop and bar are not open a great deal in the off-peak season so check the times, and unusually you have to pre-order bread and croissants the day before. We hired bikes of a good standard for €8.50 per day which was reasonable. The site lake is well stocked with carp and rudd and very pleasant for a few quiet hours fishing. The area is good for walking and biking and very rural, with the towns of Granville and St Pair close by. The former an interesting walled old town, the latter a pleasant and clean seaside town with little commercialism. We had a week on the site which is probably enough. There's no restaurant here so be warned if you're arriving late and expecting one. For a real treat order a 'Plat de fruits de mer' from the fish section at the nearby Geant supermarket to take away. We ordered a 3 person plat for €15 per person which was fantastic and more than enough for 4 adults with crab, langoustine, shrimps, whelks the lot. We would return.

Just got back from a week at this site, have had a great time. The pool area was clean and well maintained. The kids facilities were excellent and my 19 month year old loved the slides and pools. The site itself was again well maintained, well laid out and quiet. Would be nice if the bar had been open a bit longer or maybe at lunchtime. Would definitely go there again.

Has it all, tranquility, brilliant pool complex, and no noisy drunken families crawling back from the bar with their young children at 1am. Yes, you have to look after your children in the pool area, but the rest of europe have a better grasp of parenting skills then the british and so don't rely on someone else to do it for them.

If you want karaoke, cheap drinks, a bar open all night and a fun fair next door please stay in the Uk and leave places like this to the rest of us!

Our 2nd time here as we know it's a great site, small and quiet but lovely for relaxing. The indoor pool complex is great for younger children as they can go down the slides by themselves as the water at the bottom is not deep.

The bar and takeaway are great but are not open on a Monday!

Casino supermarket 5 minutes up the road, although the site shop has the basics.

Local towns of St Pair sur mer and Granville are worth a look.

We would always go back to this site.
