We've just got back from a 3 week tour of France & stayed here for 6 nights. The reception staff were amazing, helpful & friendly (especially as they helped us out as we had arrived a night early!!). We were in a touring caravan. The pitches at the bottom of the site were best-ours was fully serviced, large (caravan plus awning plus pod, gazebo & car easily fitted), by the amenity block which was clean & functional (& had toilet seats which was a major bonus having been down to the south!!) & had both sun & shade from the partition hedges/trees. The water & waste required long pipes to reach from the points on the pitch.
The pool was lovely if a little chilly with plenty of comfortable sun beds which seemed to flow freely being available through the day-no need to get up early to get one. There was a slide that my son enjoyed & a warmer indoor pool & jacuzzi.
We found the bar expensive & evening entertainment lame but happily played cards at our pitch anyway. We didn't bother paying for wifi as others said access was limited & could only be accessed in the bar on one device per payment. The games room with pool & table football tables was a bonus.
My son joined in with the kids club & really enjoyed it. The playground facilities were great.
The site itself felt very safe & security at the gate was good.
The on site shop was very expensive so we didn't use it but there are local supermarkets.
My main down point to this site (& this is uncontrollable by the site) was that it was so British!! The seafront locally is like Blackpool & way too touristy for me with arcades & pedal cars etc & the prices were high. St jean de monts village is beautiful.
So in summary, if you have kids & want a predominantly British campsite with good size pitches & decent amenities then this is a fantastic site to go to. You'll have a fab & relaxing time in lovely surroundings.
