This is a really friendly park with a nice feel about it where the owner is very active and keen to maintain standard. We stayed for 10 nights with Eurocamp in July/Aug in a 2 bed classic+ which was spotless and functional. The EC reps, were the nicest / best we have ever experienced! The camping area itself is relatively small but didn't feel overcrowded as the pitches are reasonably spaced out and it is based on 150+ acres of forested grounds. In my opinion the facilities were very good but not quite outstanding. Only little things like toilets near the pools for the little ones. We only tend to chose small and quiet sites and weren't disappointed although our pitch could have been a bit better as it backed on the D55 which isn't at all busy but cars driving "in rush hour" were noticeable to us. We were also under the trees so got very little direct sunlight, on the plus side the mobile was very cool which was great. I would say half the site is in the sun and the the other in the woods, you pay your money and take your chance as they say but worth requesting at booking if its important to you. There are two main pools, one covered which never seemed to be overcrowded, one much quieter than the the other with the slides. The real highlight for us was the high-ropes courses within the grounds (Grand Defi) which were brilliant fun for everyone from 2 to OAP! There are some lovely walks / runs around the site / forest as well, it's beautiful. The restaurant served good quality food (had three evening meals) and the bar / courtyard area was a very nice place to sit and have a beer whilst the kids played, a sun trap! We also didn't feel ripped off by the prices as on some camp sites, e.g. you could eat three courses for 16 euros. Pony rides, crazy golf (which had seen better days), tennis, table tennis and a mini petting farm kept my two kids very happy. You could also walk to the friendly little supermarket and bakery in the village and there is also a chemist if needed. Also try Sauvettre beach as it is lifeguarded with lots of parking and good on beach facilities. All in all a great little place in a lovely part of France! We'd go there again without question.
