This was our first time to France and camping experience with Vacansoleil. We were firstly met by a grumpy and unhelpful young man behind the desk though the other staff were pleasant enough.There was no Vacansoleil rep onsite (Bali home) for the 2 weeks!! The site is good enough and spacious with plenty of entertainment and in a good location. However, I was alarmed by the antics going on in the swimming pool. The pool was over vastly crowded with adults and teenagers throwing footballs like missiles, hitting young children, and the same people 'bombing' into the water. I had to confront a guy of around 25 who landed on my 6 yr old daughter. He spat at me and this was all under the watchful eye of the so called life guard! He was not interested in my complaint nor was the manager of the site. This type of carry on went on for the duration of my holiday there. 1 life guard for that amount of people is a serious risk, especially to young swimmers, I certainly could not relax when my children were in the pool. Though I will admit, the life guard did speak to me on the first day...telling me that Bermuda shorts were not allowed! That was all they were interested in. Please be aware of young children in the pool....do not take your eyes off them. There was also a very large fire in the refuse/recycling area which was no fault of the campsite owners but they allowed children to get close to the fire which was just ridiculous with all the staff they have, not one was to be seen...there were gas bottles near by. Other than that, overall,it is a good campsite but they really need to address there safety standards and perhaps the staff could do with regular safety training and safety drills and more life guards as 1 life guard for over 120 people must surely be illegal. I will not be visiting this campsite again with young children.
