Alan Rogers Review

Recently acquired by the FranceLoc chain, this site has undergone major building works, which were still in progress when we visited in June 2013. Close to the important resorts of Royan and Saint Georges-de-Didonne, the park covers 6.5 hectares and has over 400 pitches, with just 40 for touring. All have electricity (6A); some are in a group below high trees with access across the grass, others are tucked away amongst the mobile homes and chalets, many of which are to rent. Fine sandy beaches are within easy reach.

Royan is a stylish resort with good shopping and dozens of excellent seafood restaurants, and is the starting point for numerous boat trips. Saint Georges is a more relaxed town and has an attractive port area and an impressively long sandy beach. Along the shore of the Gironde are pretty little villages and fishing ports, including Talmont, classified as one of the Plus Beaux Villages de France. To the north are La Palmyre boasting France’s second largest zoo, and the Forêt de la Coubre.


Two traditional toilet blocks with very basic WCs, mostly Turkish, some washbasins in cubicles and controllable showers. Baby baths and simple en-suite unit for disabled visitors. Shop, bar/restaurant, snack bar/takeaway and entertainment area under marquee (high season). Heated swimming pool with retractable roof. Large flume. Artificial freshwater lake with sandy beach. Games room. Boules. Large adventure château for older children, with smaller version on sand for younger ones. Free WiFi over part of site.

From A10 motorway at exit 35 at Saintes, join ring road in a southerly direction then take N150 signed Royan. Stay on this road until just before Médis. The site is then signed on your left.
