Alan Rogers Review
A traditional, family run site, with a good atmosphere, this site has 121 pitches and 37 chalets (some private, some to rent). The 78 grassy touring pitches are reasonably level, there is shade in most areas and electricity (10A) is available. The site is served by one main toilet block and mostly gravel roads. Amenities include a small, covered bar and terrace. Takeaway food and bread are available in July and August. The town has an imposing ruined chateau and an old church, and there is a large motor museum nearby.
Among its 160 vehicles is a rare 1904 Leon Bollee, the only one ever sold in France, plus many other rare cars, bicycles and motorcycles. An interesting excursion is to Bourgenay where you will find the Aquarium or visit Les Viviers de la Mine where you can buy fresh seafood including oysters and other shellfish. A supermarket and an ATM are just 300 m. from the site.
One main large sanitary block supplemented by a smaller, much older unit in main season. Washbasins in cubicles, showers with seats. Good facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry rooms. Bar with TV, games machines and billiards. Takeaway (July/Aug). Covered and heated swimming and paddling pools. Playground, trampoline and bouncy castle. Bicycle hire. Entertainment in season. Double axle caravans and American RVs not accepted. Barbecues are not permitted. WiFi in bar area.
