Yelloh ! Village Les Tournels
Reviewed July 8, 2013

stayed for the last week of june and first week of july in 2013 with a family of teenagers and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. the surroundings and views of the sea really make you feel like you have escaped the busy hustle and bustle of st. tropez! the pool is quite nice but can become extremely overcrowded in july with not even a single deck chair free! The mobiles are well spaced out and clean. the only bad points was that the entertainment was extremely poor. there was one night of averagely good entertainment with the rest very boring. Apart from that though i would give it a 7 out of 10 which is very high in my standards !

Room Tip: mobiles and pitches at the top of the hill more picturesque with views and a lot more room than ones...

We travelled from Ireland on the Ferry late May for the 1st 2 weeks in June. Got the ferry to Cherbourg and then drove through the night to Les Tournels - Really long drive but worth it!

Weather was fantastic - We stayed 14 nights - one cloudy day - one massive thunder storm and apart from that blue skies!

The surrounding area is really beautiful and some of the pitches have the most fantastic views - It is hilly up to them but well worth it!. We have 3 young children so we gave in on the views and instead stayed at the base of the site directly opposite the playground. Playgrounds were really good one for younger children and then another for children up to about 12 with climbing nets etc.

The pool area was fantastic - 2 kids pools and then a lazy river children were allowed in as well. Our children loved this! There are 6 waterslides and small children are allowed on which is fab. At 3pm they do dancing at the pool for 30-45 mins and that was actually the highlight of their day every day! The childrens entertainers Tim, Camille and Gigi were fantastic - really, really nice and made a huge effort. The kids club was available - ours all went the second week in the mornings and although it was quiet as it was off season they just loved it .

All the staff were friendly. the weather was gorgeous and as it was off season there was no problem getting a sun lounger etc. I would say it's packed in peak season so reckon we would try to go again in early June.

Although we went independently we stayed near the Canvas reps hut and John & Judy were just lovely- really friendly and helpful also.

The shop is a 5 - 10 minute walk away but its thorugh a beautiful vineyard so not an issue at all! Really loved it !

Our third visit this camp site and it was fantastic. The location is beautiful and going at the beginning of June meant it was really quite and very cheap!!! The chalets are good quality, but more expensive we camped (glamped) with Canvas holiday days how are brilliant especially the site reps John and Judy. We drove down which is great if you like long drives but the motorways are fantastic but a little expensive.

Room Tip: We were near the bar, this is okay out of season wouldn't recommend it in July and August. Actua...

We had a half term break for a week here. Could not ask for better. Lovely facilties great pool complex. Out of season the balance is just right. Not too busy by the pools that you can not get a sunbed. Not too hot for us either. As it is a big site I expect in high season it would be very busy. This part of the world is a great place to explore. Expect it to be expensive to eat out. Our kids loved it too. We will be back

We have been to Les Tournels for 3 week holidays for the last 28 years. Anyone expecting neat, grass pitches in the South of France is in for a shock! The gound is certainly firm, but just what is needed when the Mistral blows! Six inch nails are best! In recent years, the site has come under new management and is now very "commercial", having been a family-run enterprise since the 50s. We like the excellent security and first class, spotless amenities, but if you don't want to use the pool - one of the best beaches in the world is less than a mile away! - then it's pricey. The local shop is well stocked, but not cheap, It's convenient for bread etc., but better to head off to the larger supermarkets for a bigger "shops". The office runs a very efficient booking service, and the loyalty points soon add up and are a useful saving on future trips. While the site is large, it is big enough to never make you feel "crowded". Live entertainment is provided in the evenings, but a "no noise" policy works well from 2300 hrs. There is an extensive Spa, but not the sort of thing we use! Ideal for families with young children as it is very, very secure and has an excellent play park enjoyed by, first, my children and now our grandchildren!

Room Tip: Lovely views from the pitches higher up the hill, but only for the fittest or those willing to use t...

The region is absolutely beautiful with stunning views and beaches. However our experience of this campsite put a dark cloud over our holiday. The campsite is extremely hilly and quite exhausting, there is only one shop outside the camp, about 15 minute walk, it is very overpriced. But by far the worst was the rudeness of the bar ,restaurant and security in les tournels who seemed to make up there own rules as they went along. There was no consistency in closing times or food ordering times an example of this is my brother in law had aske for mussels from the menu since his arrival on Thursday sept 13th he was assured by staff that he coul get them the following Wednesday yet when the day arrived he ordered them and was told he did not reserve them so therefore he could not have them, sureley if this was the case he should have been advised by staff on evenings prior to this.They ignored people queing for food and drinks and only served them when they felt like it. The complex is clean and has good facilities but in order for holidaymakers to enjot their time they have to feel welcome and listened too, very important if Les tournels would like to see people return or indeed recomend to others. Staff training in hospitality and manners is definately needed.

Room Tip: insist on accomadation that is not uphill

Wow, what a view as you enter the campsite! Only in France ( with their love of big campsites) would they allow a campsite nestled betwen the rich and famous spots of the wonderful Pampelonne beach, picturesque Ramatuelle and St Tropez itself. Despite the large size f the site, it actually fits in quite unobtruslvely in the middle of vineyard and shaded by pine trees. Some may find it a little isolated, being a long hike, tiring bike ride or short car journey to the above said locations, but personally I felt I'd found my own little piece of heaven, especialy sitting on the decking of our chalet, glass of local Rose in hand, and with tantalizing glimpses of the impossibly blue sea though the trees ( ours was not a sea view chalet, but if you aimed your deck chair just so then you could definateley see the sea which was an unexpected bonus.
The chalet itself ( a riveria club or something like that) was compact but well designed, well appointed and very comfortable in a homebase sort of way. I had a good snoop around the site, and some of the chalets were certainly quite sociable in terms of being close to your neighbours, but the site as a whole was very well designed so it never felt built up or overcrowded. The hills are pretty extreme though, and you definately felt you got a good workout several times a day. I'd say the further side of the campsite ( above the restaurant area) is slightly less hilly and more picturesque, but you won't usually get a sea view on this side.
I liked the restuarant, and the pools were fun, but the pool area rather vast so difficult to watch young children. To me, going to the pool felt like going on a trip to an exotic leisure centre, and didn't feel like the sort of place to really relax. I also got told off by a life guard for moving a sun lounger ( to try and find a shady spot); apparently this is not allowed as there are so many chairs for each area. I suppose with a site this size you are never going to get small and intimate.
Also, if coming in peak season when the entertainment is on ( July and August), it's helpful to be able to embrace the whole campsite mentality of joining in silly games ( the flip flop tossing contest was particualry fun as was the donkey derby!) Overall, the atmopshere was more Centre Parcs, but with a bit of Butlins thrown in. You can avoid this side of things if you try, but the nighttime entertainment is hard to avoid altogether as the geography of the campsite is such that it acts as one big ampitheatre, with the noise travelling up the hill to the chalets and tents. It wasn't too obtrusive, but just don't go expecting complete tranquilty. Actually we watched the entetainment on a couple of evenings, and it was pretty good fun and the team were enthusiastic and mildly talented.
As everyone has pointed out, it would be great to have a small shop on site. The local spa had just about everything imaginable in stock, but was too far to walk in the heat.
Ohh, and the wrist bands. Yes, I know they are probably necessary on a site like this, but when you venture out of camp you do feel like you've been tagged, and I'm sure they attracted a few stares when we treated ourselves to lunch at club 55. But then we probably would have stood out a mile anyway as we were hardly the epitome of St tropez glammer! But that brings me back to the beauty of this place; that you can holiday in semi-luxury alongside the jetset ( who choose this amazing location for a very good reason), but for a fraction of the cost. Overall, I love Les Tournels!
