Alan Rogers Review

Saintes is a 2,000-year-old Gallo-Roman city, well worth a couple of days to visit the cathedral, the abbey, the Arch of Germanicus, the amphitheatre and several museums, all within walking distance of the site (reception can provide a city map). Do take a stroll through the well tended, very pretty public gardens by the riverside. This large, pleasant site is run as a franchise from the local municipality and has 214 mostly shady and generally grassy level pitches, with 132 electric hook-ups, and six mobile homes for rent.


The main toilet block is a large building and two smaller, older units open at peak times. Washbasins in cubicles. Facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry building. Motorcaravan services. Shop. Bar. Restaurant and takeaway (July/Aug). TV room. Boules. Badminton. Minigolf. Playground. Fishing. WiFi in some areas (charged). Barrier system and guardian lives on site. Twin-axle caravans not accepted.
