Staying at this camping has been a very unpleasant experience. First of all, the camping itself organizes a disco in an open-air bar in the middle (!) of the camping, from about 9.30 pm until 12.30 pm. The incredibly loud music is inescapable (we actually replaced our tent, but, unlike what some people write here, there is no quiet spot on the whole camping). After that, the adjacent campings start playing music, until the wee hours. You might as well pitch your tent in the middle of a discotheque. Granted, the camping owners are not responsible for the racket their neighbors make, but that doesn't change the fact that it was impossible to get any sleep before 5 am. One staff member actually told me (safely out of earshot of the camping owners who told me upon check-in where the supposedly "quiet spots" on the camping were, which turned out to be as loud as any other spot) in a hushed voice: "whatever they say, in my opinion, this camping is not for sleeping." He summed it up quite nicely. Add to that the rotten wooden beams in the showers, supposedly hot (paying) showers that were cold, toddlers running around on the campsite at midnight, a smelly breakfast kitchen, ... and you're in for a unpleasant surprise.
There's certainly an audience for this kind of place. But if your not a 15 year old party head, hard-of-hearing or an insomniac, I would strongly recommend to avoid this campsite.
