“Great holiday”
Reviewed 6 August 2012 via mobile

Had an 11 night holiday at domaine du columbier in June 2012 (group of 5 - 4 adults and a 15 month old). This was our second stay here and we look forward to returning again. On our last visit we used this as a base for lots of sightseeing in the region but this time we had a much more relaxing holiday as we had our 15 month daughter with us.

Facilities on the sight were great. The new pool complex, opened this year, was really good. There were plenty of sun beds and we always got a group together whatever time of day we visited the pool. Play area was good and it was really nice to have an area for under 2's. We used the bar/restaurant by the pool complex several times - mainly as we were there during the European Championships. Had a meal there one night and food was really good and priced as you would expect (same as you would pay in Frejus / st Raphael).

Stayed in two bedroom villa nova with keycamp. This was a basic caravan but was adequate. Large decked area which we used for all meals. Air con and a gas barbecue were included, both of which we used daily during our stay - so great to have them! Keycamp staff were great and very helpful. Highchair and cot both included at no extra cost.

Weather during the last two weeks of June was great, around 30degrees, and did not see a drop of rain!

Staff at the tourist centre were very helpful recommending day trips to us and offering general advice on the region. We visited the Gorges du Verdon for the day which was breathtaking but a long drive. Also visited St Tropez and Port Grimaud in one day by boat from St Maxime.

We would definitely recommend this site to couples and families and we look forward to returning soon.

I have just returned from a weeks holiday staying in a Yelloh Villiage Club Colombier mobile (2 adults and 3 kids under 7). While the facilities on the campsite were good (pool great, kids club and kids facilities all good), apart from the service in the restaurant at the main pool which was terrible (30 mins to get a drink or for someone to even approach you to take your order) the facilities in the mobile home we had were a disgrace. For what we paid for 7 nights we received no linen, towels, aircon, oven nor a barbecue. Also EUR 70 for clean on departure. Having met others who were staying with keycamp, they paid less for 10 nights for what we paid for 7 and got all the facilities we did not have. When I queried this with Club Colombier staff they basically said we could not compare their service with key camp and "I should have paid more money" if I wanted what I would consider basic facilities. Just a note that I paid over EUR 1,500 for 7 nights. The manner in which they spoke to me was disgraceful and I would not recommend Yelloh village to anyone. Key camp far better.

We have just returned (June 2012) from a wonderful stay at Domaine Du Columbier. We are a family of 5 with our three children aged 11, 10 and 5.
We have never holidayed in a caravan abroad before and weren't sure what to expect of the site and the region, but we have had what the kids described as "The best holiday ever!"
There is the new pool/lagoon areas which are new for 2012 and a lot of thought has gone into it's layout. There are 3 great sets of waterslides for the children, a smaller paddling pool for the toddlers with water toys and a lazy river for everybody to enjoy. There is also the Pool which goes from nothing to 1.5 mtrs deep. There were ample sun loungers and from wherever you looked there were spectacular views. From above the lazy river they have build a decked terrace which overlooks the pools and was beautifully furnished. We found it a little expensive for the quality food but it was a lovely place to sit out and enjoy a cool drink in the afternoon.

The accommodation throughout the parc is designed to blend in with it's beautiful setting and is surrounded by lush green plants and stunning flowers.There was a spa that we didn't use but looked great. The Children enjoyed the playground and ping-pong tables. There is also a shop which sold all the necessities that you needed but you may find it cheaper to stock up at the local Casino supermarket (about a 5 minute drive away).
We stayed with Keycamp and had a VillaGrand caravan with decking. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. There was a gas BBQ, terrace furniture and sun loungers in our "garden" area. We found it more than adequate but next time if we book earlier we hope to upgrade to the Prestige for the more room it would give our larger family. The Keycamp Rep's were informative and very helpful throughout our stay.
Close by the resort was the beautiful towns of Frejus and St Rafael. We dined out most evenings in St Rafael and found the restaurants served delicious food, great wine and not too bad on price (for those looking for an idea we were paying between 85-115 euros a night including a good bottle of wine). Children will enjoy the many ice-cream shops that are set up along the front, they serve about 50 different flavours - a great end to every evening. Places we also visited were St Tropez and Marineland.(wanted to do more but ran out of time).
I've tried to keep this review factual and not moan about silly little gripes. It does what it says on the tin and we've had a great time. Can't wait to go back next year!

Room Tip: The parc is located in a hilly area so if you are not good with hills ask for your accommodation to...

Stayed here for 2 weeks the beginning of May this year, had a prestige caravan from Keycamp which was spotless and very comfortable at the edge of the park so not overlooked. We are 2 adults and a 4 year old boy and I have only good things to say about our stay. The kids club was outstanding - our son was the only english speaking child on the site (the rest were french and dutch) but the 2 staff (employed by the site) who run the club - Carolien and Daisy were excellent and always spoke in the 3 languages to include our son. As we were there early season there weren't that many kids but there were varied kids club activities every day - cooking, gardening, games, crafts etc. The playground was good with a bouncy castle but I imagine it would get very crowded in high season. The pool area was clean, fun slides, warm water and a good bar/cafe area (it wasnt open in the evenings but there another bar in the centre of the site). They have a no tshirt in the water rule but the lifeguards (who are very strict) provide suncream if you need!
Once a week they had a kids disco which all the kids loved (in the camp nightclub).
The whole area is beautiful and I recommend driving to St Tropez as there are amazing beaches all the way along the coast. You need a car here - buses arent that regular and taxis are v pricey, but there is a Leaders supermarket about 10 minutes walk from the camp gate. Its too far to walk to Frejus beach - about 10 mins by car, its an ok beach but there are much nicer ones along the coast a few miles. Marineland at Antibes (about 60 miles away) is a must if you have kids - there is a whole complex of kids parks by Marineland and it might be worth staying in a hotel there to make the most of them. Weather was much better than we anticipated for May - about 25/26 each day, no cloudy days. We'll definitely go back - loved it - our son cried when we left and is still talking about it how great it was 4 months on.

We have just arrived home from two weeks on this site and we had a brilliant holiday as the sun shone and although we have been to this area before haven't stayed in Frejus. We holidayed with Keycamp and the mobile home was excellent, clean and with a spacious outdoor area. Very pretty surroundings. Reading some previous reviews, our mobile was up at the top of the site nearer to the shop and near to the road. We didn't have a problem with noise, yes you heard the traffic but it wasn't so bad. We bought wi-fi access at 24 euro's for the week and it worked perfectly well. The main reception staff were friendly and spoke perfect english although we spoke to them in french at first. The security on this site was excellent. We were watched whilst leaving with our car and walking by them subtly of course. The negatives of this campsite is that it's very hilly and the pool was a disappointment, not enough space around the pool to put a towel down as we could never get a lounger and it was not clean. It was discoloured on the bottom, the steps out were dirty and the filters couldn't have been working properly as there was hair everywhere. It was a real shame. The sea was cleaner. So that's were we headed for our swims. Travel up towards La Trayas on the coastal roads and there are almost empty bays all along the coast. Where you see cars parked stop and park and you'll be amazed at the hidden although pebbly coves. We wouldn't rule out this site as a base again though. Apparently a new second pool is in the pipeline for the top of the site and would be much needed. If you are going to this site have a great holiday.

Stayed here with a 12 and 15 year old at the very beginning of the summer school hols and it seems we beat most other travellers from uk there as the site was about 90% Dutch visitors. The site is very hilly with great views of the countryside, nicely landscaped with hedging around 3 sides of each mobile home. Food and drink on site is expensive compared to uk, we found it best to go to Carrefour for stuff to put on the bbq most nights. The pool area got very busy and difficult to get a sunbed if you didn’t get there soon after it opened, also we noticed if you left your bed for any length of time someone took your towel off and took the bed!!!Maybe this was just a Dutch and French thing!!!
