Alan Rogers Review
The present owners, M. and Mme. Gharbi, were the wardens of this simple, former municipal site and now lease it from the town. They have funded several developments since they took over in 2003 including a swimming pool, a snack bar, play area and new electrical hook-ups. The site is flat with easy access, and the large pitches are in avenues, separated by newly planted small shrubs. There is little natural shade. The new electric hook-ups (on 116 of the 148 pitches) are 6A. Outside high season this is a pleasant, reasonably priced place to stay while exploring the Bassin d’Arcachon with its bird reserve, oyster-beds, way-marked walks and cycle tracks.
This is a very tranquil site until the beginning of July. Audenge (800 m) is a lovely little town with a good choice of shops and restaurants. The Gharbis are very proud of their site, and this shows in the welcome and the high standard of maintenance.
The single toilet blocks is very adequate. Some washbasins are in cubicles, pushbutton showers are preset. Toddler bath. No facilities for disabled campers. Bar and snack bar (July/Aug). Swimming pool (1/4-31/8). Play area. Volleyball pitch. Internet access and WiFi over part of site (charged). Motorhome services and overnight pitches outside site. Mobile homes, wooden chalets, caravans and Trigano tents to rent.
