What a massive disappointment this "Holiday !!!" proved to be. We have camped all over Europe and the U.K in both tents and our touring caravan and are proud members of The Caravan Club. I think we know what to expect from camping sites at our time of life however this experience was quite frightful. I never expected to be holidaying in “Hooverville“ especially after reading most of the reviews about this holiday company. Odd ,very very odd.
The caravans were basic and were dirty. Indeed the cleaning materials have obviously seen better days which when you think about it is rather ironic. There were used tea bags in a teapot and the mattresses were grotty. Thank God we brought our own clean freshly laundered sheets. Both my 2 young sons have asthma and eczema and if you have children with these ailments ,do not come here, it is not clean enough. The pillows felt like hundreds of cotton wool balls tossed into a sack….absolutely unacceptable.
The pitch itself was small ,dirty and lacked basic maintenance. There was no screening from neighbouring vans or tents save for some scabby dying sparse vegetation.
We have been to many camping sites but do not expect caravans and tents to be so close to one another. Please look at my photographs. To have someone else’s laundry flapping around about 2 feet outside my bedroom window beggars belief, as does the owner of said clothes having a good look in your window whilst hanging out said items. To make matters worse you can just see bins under said window. Its France, its high summer, its hot and it STINKS.…..
If your mad enough to come here then make sure you ascertain which caravans you are allocated to. I believe they have another 2 or 3 vans in a more appropriate place in the camp.
I was very disappointed in the indifferent attitude of the owners when issues were raised with them.
The camp itself was clean and other owners /Dutch, German companies have obviously invested in new clean caravans, which I think Sunhat really need to consider. Another example of Rip Off Britain. by the British. At least there were no problems getting our £100 security deposit back, I felt like using it to donate some clean mops, buckets and cloths.
The restaurant was borderline satisfactory although don’t give your kids money for the toy dispensing machines as invariably they don’t work and restaurant owners attitude not too sympathetic.
On the plus side there is an hourly security patrol at night to ensure safety and order. These gentlemen are polite and greet you in a pleasant manner during there rounds.
Be careful not to enjoy yourself too much after 10pm as campers, in tents are sleeping 7 feet away from you as soon as the sun goes down.
The area itself is quite menacing at times. We were here 6 years ago and had a great holiday at Camping Du Pylone a few miles away and this time around I was alarmed to see nightly police road blocks in the area now. For some reason even in the surrounding towns and villages there is a much heavier police presence. A good or bad thing....I am not sure.
I have tried to forget this dreadful holiday and couldn’t bring myself to write a review however people deserve to hear all reviews good or bad.
Book at your peril, you have been warned. Poor value for money.
