La Jenney was our first trip into naturism, but it won't be our last. What a great introduction! Friendly staff welcome you to the wonderful site set amongst a lovely remote pine forest close to the coast.
We stayed in a 'fregate' villa/cabin that was well positioned so that 'your' porch did not intrude onto the other people around you. It is a little basic inside (no microwave) and only two rings on the hot plate but easy to produce good meals for the two of us.
The bedroom was the only thing that let it down really, far too small with less than 6 inches between the end of the bed and the bedroom wall (oh and the pillows! ) That said, it was a good little 'home' for us for the week.
The site was clean, quiet and very peaceful. The supermarket was well stocked, a reasonsible price and cheery helpful staff. The restuarant did get busy, so it is advisible to book for the more popular later evening (8pm onwards) times. A la carte is a little pricey but the plat du jour and specials are good value and tasty. The bar was a bit of a disapointment inside, but the outside was lovely with good service and good prices.
The pools are great and the mixture of three diffrent types of pool plus a paddling pool for the little ones meant that everyone had space to swim and play.
If you are an archer, take your own bow with you (as I did) as the archery range can be used at anytime if there are not classes on. The archery instructor, Sat, is a knowledgible bloke who got everyone going but also welcomed experienced archers as well. Like all the staff at La Jenny, he was friendly helpful and doing his best to make your holiday enjoyable.
Is it truly a naturist site, maybe not, more clothes optional. Some people were naturist as often as the weather permitted, with just a top on when it was a little cool, others were fully clothed nearly all the time. The pool area was the only area where the strict no clothing rules were enforced by staff and also by some fiesty french grandmas!
Th nearby beach is fantastic and has life guards during the high season. A good job too, as there was a very strong under tow on the steeply shelving beach/waterline. The wind comes straight off the Atlantic, so it can get quite cool and a wind break is a great idea.
As a place to start your naturist future life, La Jenny was almost perfect.
