This was our first time to this site having been to two other campsites in France previously. This is a lovely site, quiet because we went in June & because it is isnt too big it felt very safe for the kids. Beach is on the doorstep too & is fantastic and clean and is a haven for surfers. There are two really nice restaurants that we went to just up the road which are run by young couples. The restaurant on site was a bit pricey so we only went their once for food but a good place to go for a drink when it was open which was a bit hit and miss. Shop onsite had fresh bread every day and staff were friendly. The indoor pool is clean and because it was quiet we had it to ourselves, outdoor pool area was big with plenty of slides. Tennis & crazy golf free hire in June & a couple of park areas for the kids to play. So overall a good site. Went with Matthews holidays and stayed in their Magnum caravan. A bit dated but clean.

Just back from one week stay at Les Dunes. We travelled with Matthews Holidays, and a 3 hour drive from St Malo.

Site was lovely and clean. Our mobile home had a shower, but we also used the public showers on site, and these were spacious and clean with tons of hot water. Direct access to beach, which hosted a world surfing championship event in 2010. Beach never crowded.

Weather was warm when we were there, without being oppressive. Lots of French on-site, which is a good sign. On site supermarket not too expensive, but running down stock when we were there as closing in 1st week of September. Bread baked on premises and it was lovely.

Pool was pretty cold, but it didn't seem to bother many. Sea temperature was 23 degrees according to beach lifeguards, which was much warmer than pool. Bar was quiet and restaurant served usual campsite fare of pizzas, mussels, burgers and pasta.

No problem recommending site - peaceful, clean and relaxing

We have holidayed with Carisma for several years now, can't fault them, the booking staff are very efficient and helpful, the sites in France are all highly recommended.

This site is in a very pleasant location, with beach and forests close by. The reps were excellent, very friendly and helpful, we all enjoyed the wine and cheese evening especially the quiz.

Camping les Dunes with carisma holidays, has us hooked, we been 3 times. The site is a bit outside Les Sables D'Olonne but the negatives stop there. Carisma just cant do enough to help make the holiday better, the couriers call to the home each morning to check all is well and if not eg light bulb, gets sorted in minutes. kids (age 11, 8 and 5) love the pool with slides and the kids club. recommend bring/hiring bikes as there are some lovely cycle tracks, lots to go to within a short drive (if you like!), the wine and cheese on beach is a great ice breaker and where you meet the parents of the children yours have been playing with. The staff in the office back in England always get top marks on my holiday assessment form. If you have younger kids you should perhaps try their site in Jard sur Mer.
