Alan Rogers Review

Neatly and attractively landscaped, Le Soleil has 158 level pitches amongst trees and shrubs. Numbered and marked with low wooden fences, many have electricity (10A). Those in a circular, central area are designed for motorcaravans with part gravel hardstanding. There may be some noise from the road and an industrial area nearby, but accessibility to the amenities of the town balance this to a degree (five minutes to grassy picnic areas by the harbour and 20 minutes to the town centre shops, restaurants and bars or to the beach). Very busy in high season, reservation is advised.

A half hourly bus service to town runs from outside the site and a ferry service across the harbour to town.


Two toilet blocks provide British and Turkish style toilets, pre-set hot water, some washbasins in cabins and 12 hot and 2 cold showers, all opening from the outside. Facilities for disabled visitors. Launderette near. Delivery vans call with bread, milk, etc. Boules. Barbecue areas, plus an area for dogs.

From ring road (peripherique), follow signs for Gare or Centre-Ville and from either of these follow signs to Vieux Port Sud, Aquarium or Port les Minimes. From there follow small signs to site.
