We stayed on this site in mid -June in a mobile home which we hired direct from the campsite.The campsite is rather remote but set against a beautiful lake and surrounded by lovely countryside.
Unfortunately, the home was situated amongst trees and with no view of the lake though we got tantalising glimpses of it glinting through the foliage!This made for a very dark and damp mobile home and we had to make good use of the heater to ensure the bedroom walls were not running with water in the morning as happened at the beginning of our stay.
Our main complaint was the general air of shabbiness on the campsite as though they were not yet geared up for visitors. I know mid June is not high season but you would expect some degree of preparedness. Our caravan was not ready when we arrived although we were told we were the first in this season and had booked months before.Within an hour, we were told it was ready, only to be met with the floors swilling in water as it had just been mopped.This set the tone of the whole place.The caravan was showing its age and the blankets on the bed were certainly not fresh.To make matters worse, there were newer caravans higher up the site with open aspects and stunning views across the lake.Outside around the caravan hadn't been touched. The table and chairs were filthy and the table was held together with gaffer tape!This was replaced on asking.The small decking area was too small really to sit on and the wood was old and beginning to rot.We got very little sun anyway where we were situated so didn't have the option of sitting out.
It would have helped if it had been made clearer on the website where exactly the vans were situated as they varied so much.
On looking around, the steps leading down to each terrace were not in good repair and I would say they were dangerous in places. Communal wash areas were a disgrace though one was quickly tidied up soon after our arrival. We had friends staying in their own caravan who used these facilities and were not happy with the day- to- day cleanliness of them.Similarly, toilets in the restaurant/bar area were dirty.
The whole place seemed to be operated by a group of young lads who were laid back to say the least. Whilst not wishing to sound sexist, it is never a good idea to leave cleaning duties to young males whose standards generally leave a lot to be desired!They were pleasant enough however when asked for anything but the chef seemed to be the only one to make an effort to be friendly.
We spoke to an English couple who had stayed in the past when the site was operated by Castels and they said how shabby it now was in comparison.We have stayed on many sites in France over the years and this was probably the worst though the potential is there because of the location.
