Alan Rogers Review
This family-run site is surprisingly peaceful, considering its location just off one of the main roads into Royan. Over more than 40 years, the owner has planted a large number of tree varieties to mark and separate the pitches and they now provide a good deal of shade. The site has 80 pitches for touring units, mainly between 80-95 sq.m. Most have 6/10A electricity (some may need long leads) and access to water close at hand. Royan, with all its noise and sophistication and well-used beaches, is only 6 km. away, but there are many quieter possibilities.
Royan’s neighbour, Saint Georges-de-Didonne, has its own character, with a pleasant port and a wonderful long beach. La Palmyre to the northwest boasts France’s second largest zoo and has long beaches and an extensive forest (La Forêt de la Coubre), home to a variety of amusement and adventure parks and activity centres. Along the shore of the Gironde estuary to the south are more little villages and fishing ports including Talmont-sur-Gironde, one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, and Mescher with its Cité Troglodite.
Two traditional toilet blocks contain a mixture of Turkish and British style toilets, preset showers, and in the main block (open only in high season) some washbasins in cabins and a baby changing room. Facilities for disabled campers. Washing machines and dryer. Motorhome services. Swimming and paddling pools (Seasonal). Small shop and bar/snack bar with simple takeaway (July/Aug). Play area for young children. Activity and entertainment for all the family (High season). Free WiFi over site.
Médis is 32 km. southwest of Saintes via the N150. Site is clearly signed on the west side of this road, just before the village.Link to campsite location map on google
