We have stayed on a few keycamp/eurocamp sites in france, and this certainly had the best pool/bar complex we have seen....if you are prepared to queue from 8.30 until it opens at 9 and then race in with towels to 'bag' a sun bed!...I saw many do this and then leave them there unattended until the afternoon, and yes they were Brits...Otherwise you can just take a rug and set up on the grassy slopes nearby but thatwould be quite a way from the pool if you had little children.
Pitches are VERY close together and its a case of pot luck or spend a lot more money to get a decent view/space in front of your pitch. We were lucky but saw many who had views of someone elses car , and at the prices charged that does seem wrong.
All the public areas were beautifully kept and well laid out, although the toilet and shower areas were often found to be a bit mucky purely through the volume of people using them.
The key/eurocamp couriers were all, without exception, hardworking and cheerful. Despite the soaring temperatures and the demands of the job where they seemd to be constantly running around, helping customers, they always had a smile and a greeting, nothing was too much trouble for them. Pat on the back for all of you!
Equally, all the on site french staff were super, cheery and helpful with the language barrier.
Location wise 'remote' is the word. Nearest town, Le Bugue is only 10-15 mins drive but as mentioned, not an easy drive and if there is anything going on in the town (which is at least 2 markets per week) you will find it almost gridlocked to try and get through the centre (which you have to do to cross the bridge for example to get to a decent supermarket)A taxi would be about 15 euros each way in the day and 25 in the evening.
