Alan Rogers Review

Le Royannais is located at the northern end of the Medoc region, near Le Verdon-sur-Mer, on a long peninsular joined to the mainland at its most northerly point by the ferry to Royan across the Gironde estuary. This campsite has a large number of chalets of various types and some touring pitches. The campsite has a good, irregular shaped swimming pool with toboggan slide and paddling area. There is a bar and restaurant which serves good value meals. Pitches are shaded by trees, and most are on soft sand so some care is needed, particularly with heavy units. All pitches have electricity (4–6A) and some require long leads. There is evening entertainment and a children’s club in high season.

Trips out to the lighthouse in the Gironde estuary, marking the border with the Atlantic ocean, are very popular. This is the oldest operational lighthouse in France and is regarded as one of the most beautiful. Bordeaux is 80 km. to the south and the extensive vineyards of the Medoc are within easy reach. Watersports are plentiful on the Atlantic coast with surf schools and beach activities to suit all ages. It is possible to walk to the beach from the campsite (500 m) but does mean crossing the N215 road and a railway line. A short trip to Soulac-sur-Mer, with its mixture of buildings dating from the Gallo-Roman era through to the 19th century, is well worthwhile.
