“Great campsite and great holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

This campsite is excellent. I can't think of anything it didn't have. We all enjoyed the holiday, our teenagers especially.

We went with Canvas holidays who were great. Our caravan was very clean and of a very high standard. It had three bedrooms and decking - and a dishwasher! The pitch was lovely and big, too.

The teen activities (three time a day some days) provided by Canvas were great, our only regret was that the kids didn't use them right from the beginning. Both Canvas and the campsite put activites on, and both were of a high standard. Canvas also provided Family Extra activities.

The couriers couldn't have done more to ensure that we had a great holiday. We and others we spoke to, noted that we'd never had such good service from a company before, or seen so many couriers around. We were asked every day whether everything was ok. They seemed to 'go the extra mile' every time!

If you have teenagers then this site can't be beaten, the adventure course is excellent value (lasts for about 2 1/2 hours), there were quite a few discos on, lots of sports activites, and the rep shows were great. (Again the reps did very well).

However I should also say, that although the site is large and lively, it is very well run. From where we were on site we had a relaxing and peaceful holiday - the campsite does a great job of being quiet if you want - the adults had a very peaceful time, while the kids went to the activites. You can have both on this site. If you like walking or cycling then this site is also ideal - there are lakes and a nature reserve on site. The site is kept to a high standard, very clean and tidy.

This was our fifth time on this site - only our first with Canvas, and if we come back to France, it would be to here and with Canvas.

Stayed at Chateau DES ormes in early July. Travelled with LD Lines, recommend the fast craft not the ferry.
On arrival we had a very easy check-in and were shown to our 3 bedroom caravan by a friendly, helpful rep on a bicycle!
The caravan was clean and well presented. Had all the basics like kettle, microwave, full gas cooker and hob etc. Only thing missing really was a tv, not a problem for us but maybe for family with young children. There were sun loungers on the outside lawned area and table with chairs and parasol on the decking.
On exploring the site we found it covered a very large area, with lake, woods, golf course several swimming pools, shop, cafe, bars etc. There was something for everyone and with the lovely weather we had it was an ideal holiday location. The whole site was clean and tidy, well laid out and very pleasant to walk around.

Fantastic site, Great Pitch in the Palm Beach (PB) part of the site. Zip wire is a must.. food is okay Drinks reasonable, Wave pool isn't for babies! Caravan clean on arrival Booking and reservation spot on as ever with FF holidays.

Only down side was we ran out of gas one afternoon and it wasn'y changed till the following morning after a call to FF head office. So check you have enough gas in advance.

Happy camping!

Thank you for the positive feedback of your recent french Freedom Holidays. I'm sorry to hear that you ran out of gas during your stay, I'm sure you will be pleased to learn that Chateau des Ormes along with several of our other campsites are installing mains gas supplies to all our accommodation units. So far almost three quarters of our units are completed and it is anticipated that over the closed season the remainder will be done.

Once again thank for your comments which are much appreciated.

I have never been on one of these mobile homes holiday before so I didn’t know really what to expect.

I booked through French Freedom as I had been recommended them through a friend who had previously used them and spoke very highly of them.

I must say the service received from French freedom was brilliant. The whole booking process was simple and pain free, and I found them much cheaper than other companies.

When we arrived on site we were greeted by a friendly courier who looked after us all week. We asked for a BBQ and he brought one back right away. The caravan was spacious and clean and had been well looked after.

The site on a whole was great. The kids spent hours in the swimming pool and my eldest daughter enjoyed the tree top adventure park(so much so that she had to go on it again!). There were so many activities going on that my children where never bored. The site offers a wide range of activities such as horse riding and loads of different sports activities.

I would highly recommend Chateau des Ormes as a campsite. There is entertainment at night and always things going on in the day for everyone to enjoy. Chateau des Ormes is a lovely campsite and well looked after.

booked with keycamp middle of may for a 30th may 4 night stay great price for half term and i did look at all the companys operating here. Had listened/read lots of reviews both on trip advisor/ family/friends, all mixed but mainly on a positive side. Live in jersey so booked supersaver with condor to st malo on the monday 30th 0910 then walked to the train station got the train direct to dol 3.50 euros onway as both children travel free. Taxi from dol to campsite 14.00 euros ( make sure you take taxi number if planing this way as no taxi waiting but only took 5 mins (0299809822) . So much to write about this camp site all positive ... mobile home .. space around the pitch was great .. total joy.. felt that i had been away on holiday boys loved it .. both age 11 .. played football .. met new friends .. swimming pool outdoors and indoors ,, felt safe ,, everything worked in the mobile home and keycamp staff were there when we needed them twice once to mend the oven door ( was done within a hour of reporting it ) ..and to bring us extra blankets. The chateau staff on the activity club , in the shop and life guards around the pool , bar staff were all great . If you like walking or just strolling this is ideal . Yes the supermarket is a little expensive but its the euro and you just get on with it , nearby are the large supermarkets if you bring your car . But the basics are there and thats all you need ... We will be back for another long weekend .My only comment is about the sleep quality it was COLD at night so make sure you got extra blankets.

Room Tip: we stayed V13 back of the site nice and quite

I can t believe how disgusting the English behave towards French and Dutch staff its so unkind as everyone has been so lovely. It s been like an X rated Benidorm with the C word being thrown around. I cant watch people taking the mikey out of the French in France its been an eye opener and campsite needs to chuck them out.

This was the second year to this resort as the children loved it so much, the first year was with Key Camp (expensive and not recommeded) however after looking around there are several companies on the site so the following year we booked with Lifestyle, lovely clean caravans, gas bbq, decking. Funny reading the reviews on here people complaining if they read what they were getting in their terms and conditions re the 80 euro deposit!

Excellent pools for the kids, very safe environment with security cameras, onsite medical room, the shop is quite expensive but we popped into the town at Super U. Evening shows twice a week for the family the horse riding is relatively cheap, pedalo's were 5 euro's for 4 people, archery 10 euro's but well worth it, zip wire 5 euro's. you can make it as cheap or as expenive as you like. Lovely and helpful staff. We go with friends the men go quad biking which is off site, I have my pamper treatments in the nearby town (5miles away) and they have a decleor salon, whilst our other friend enjoys horse riding there really is something for everyone, if you leave the site recommended places to visit are dinan you can hire a boat the hill is steep up to the town though so best to move your car up. St Malo and Dinard, for the kids Alligator Bay near Mont ST Micheal. Enjoy your hols

Room Tip: Shop around lifestyle are very good value and spot
