“Loved La Pignade, perfect for families”
Reviewed 20 July 2011

We are just back from our first ever Siblu holiday. We stayed at La Pignade and it was fantastic. Our accommodation (3 bed excellence with terrace & aircon) was very nice and well equipped - the bedrooms were a bit cramped (as we'd expected) but the living area was spacious and we used the terrace for eating too.

We were near the centre of the village and although we could hear the entertainment in the evenings if we didn't go to it, it wasn't loud enough to be a nuisance.

Our children (6, 4 and 2) loved the pool, and the toddlers area was ideal for the younger ones. The children's club staff were excellent, our 6 year old really enjoyed the Pirate club, and Lindsay at Bubbles was excellent with the wee ones. Even our two year old was constantly shouting Bubbles and wanting to go.

The size of the site was perfect, friendly and not too big. We hope to go back again sometime.

The Siblu La Pignade campsite is a very well run, comfortable campsite. Relative to other Siblu campsites, it is small but that, I believe, gives it a more 'local' feel in that you become familiar with almost all of the staff and even visitors.
As with other Siblu sites, the standard of entertainment and kid's club facilities is excellent and the friendliness and efficiency of all staff withour par. The quality of the food from the takeaway/restaurant is good but service at the restaurant can be slow.
We had a couple of issues with our mobile home that were dealt with immediately. We left it late to book and couldn't get Air-Con as there are only a few mobiles with this facility. The only suggested improvement to La Pignade would be the pool size. At weekend's, it was too crowded...
Surrounding area offers a lot for families of all ages - La Palmyre Zoo/ Aquarium/ Loopyland/ Oyster Farms/ Castles/ Waterpark at Isle d'Oleron as well as much more. Wouldn't recommend the Jardins du Monde at Royan - expensive and nothing to see...
Thinking about going back again next year...

Just back from a great 2 week holiday in La Pignade. Family of 5 (kids aged 11, 8 and 6) all agree that it was a fantastic holiday - excellent camp-site with high quality caravan. We had air-con and on the days we needed it we were glad we had paid the extra. Pool was great for all the ages of our family and the life-gaurds could not be faulted. Entertainment and facilities on site were ideal, but perhaps best suited to families with younger children.
Lots to do in the surrounding area,. Some fantastic beaches and interesting historical sites. La Rochelle is well worth a visit as is the Zoo at La Palmyre.
We will definitely be back and look forward to our next holiday there.

Just returned from a two week stay in La Pignade with our 6 year old son, gutted we had to leave. Caravan was spotless and had all you could wish for. Site was also spotlessly clean. Staff were fantastic and dealt with any quearies or issues quickly and efficiently. Pool was fantastic and the lifeguards on duty were exceptional. The surrounding area had lots to do and see. The only issue to consider is the location of your caravan. We were very fortunate it was only a 2 minute walk to the pool but was shaded and also quiet. I could imagine how some other caravans near the bins or the entertainment might be an issue. Overall a fantastic holiday and can't wait to go back.

I've just returned from an 11 day holiday at La Pignade and was impressed with many aspects of the Siblu village. We arrived on 25 June so the resort was v peaceful but filled up from 1 July onwards. Ronce-les-bains is a pretty wee town but wasn't really open til 1 July and then a free train ran there and back from outside the campsite. My kids aged 8, 3 and 1 loved this.
The pools were great and nicely heated. The two splash zones for the tots were spotless and v safe with no sharp edges. The slide and flume was ok for older kids as well. Lifeguards are attentive and strict about eating at the pool and also about height restrictions for the big slides which is fair enough although my 3 yr old was outraged that he was just slightly too small to go on the big slide!
It was good that toys are supplied and that kids could borrow beach balls and arm bands.
The kids clubs were good staff were cheerful and work hard with entertainment. My kids don't really like clubs that much anyway but they did enjoy the cristal fiesta night and pirate shows.
The play area was clean and well maintained.
Our mobile home the elegance was clean and well equipped inside but was dirty on the outside and the gutters were full of weeds. I wasn't that bothered but it definitely stood out among the other caravans as a bit scruffy looking. The deck was ok and had a wee gate which kept the boys safe. I would get air conditioning next time.
Staff were helpful we had no travel cot as arranged but they sorted this out quickly.
The restaurant served good seafood and was reasonably good value. The supermarket was a bit pricey but i expected that.
In the area there is lots to do but it is expensive. We went to the aquarium which was great and youpiland on a bad day. Overall it was a v easy holiday especially with young children.

This was our first time using a campsite in France. We had a great holiday. The mobile was lovely and clean and fortunate for us our decking got the sun the whole time. The pool is brilliant. The weather wasn't great when we stayed but because they can cover it when the want it meant we could go swimming every day. The staff were great, our kids (4 & 18mths) loved the Bubble club which they went to every morning. I'd definetly recommend this site especially if you have young kids.

Spent 12 nights at La Pignade in early June. Campsite is extremely clean and well run. Mobile home was an Excellence 3 Bed with Terrace and was very clean and well equipped. Kids enjoyed the Clubs which were run most mornings and afternoon. bubbles club requires that you stay with your child but that is fine as it gives you a chance to chat to the other parents. Lovely heated pool which can have the roof rolled back when the weather is good. Ensures that the kids can go swimming every day regardless of the weather. Evening entertainment is O.K. - went down most nights with the kids.
Mobile homes do not have Gas BBQ's and you cannot use Charcoal ones at your pitch, there are communal BBQ's spread around the park but the grills were filthy so we bought disposable grilling trays in local supermarket.
Park is very well located for exploring the local area with plenty of great beaches and nice little towns to visit. Coast has numerous WW2 Bunker systems which are interesting to explore.
Excellent Bike tracks all along the coast which are ideal for young kids. Bikes can be hired from Siblu or from a shop just outside the site.
Visit to the local islands, La Rochelle and the local ZOO a must.
Overall a great relaxing holiday in a very well run park.
