We stayed at the campsite with our 2 children ( 6 and 2 yrs) and although we had a great time and the weather was great I wouldn't rush to return. In fairness the site itself is very clean and the on site staff were forever cleaning and brushing up. The site is very busy with a good little supermarket ( not cheap) and a bakery which was handy however despite there being a ban on driving around between certain hours, there was still the odd car. The traffic was something which put me off, having 2 small children the beauty of a self contained campsite is the freedom they have but there were cars around always, in particular on the way to the pool area as it was the main way out. In addition to this there was little for my kids to do. The daytime programme and facilities are good, we played table tennis, tennis, and my son took part in a football tournament in the site opposite. The pool area was great and we spent most of our time there but when it came to evening there was nothing for small kids and it was very poor. I expected a mini disco every night as the guy who ran the mini disco (Monsieur Tumbal as I called him) spoke several languages but only appeared once during the week stay so we went over to the site over the road to see him again. There was no opportunity for my kids to dance or to make friends which I felt was a shame and quite unusual as in my experience the kids bring the adults and the adults drink at the bar and they make profit. I was expecting to meet people and instead I found the opposite. We booked into the restaurant on our last night to see the rep show and the food was ok but not great and the service was terrible.
I think this site relies on people doing their own thing, so if that's your thing then this is for you.
The local area is lovely, the beach is great despite there being quite a steep shelf into the sea it is a must do just for the views and the vineyard round the corner is amazing and very cheap ( out of the site, turn right, turn left at the roundabout, there are 2 on your left) amazing!
