The camp itself is great for children, lovely pool, great beaches, very relaxed. I would certainly recommend it.

Great base for exploring, and loads of places to visit and discover. The proximity of seaside villages/towns means you're spoilt for choice for beaches and entertainment. Nearby Chateaux, interesting churches, and available activities are not in short supply. All in all, something for everyone. A good selection of restaurants are within a fairly short drive. I found parking in the small drive easy ! Remember to turn right out of the drive when setting off - the One Way sign on the main road isn't very clear. Local walks, and the river nearby, and at Apremont, are fascinating, especially if you like nature, wildlife, and/or photography. There are plenty of fishing opportunities too. A very enjoyable holiday, with help from the owners if needed. Tomtom was more than useful..... A wealth of information about specific eateries etc, is available in the house, with some very helpful observations from previous holidaymakers. The property was very clean, and customer service A1.
