Alan Rogers Review of Caravaning Esterel
Camping Caravaning Esterel is a quality caravan site east of Saint Raphaël, set among the hills beyond Agay. The site is 3.5 km. from the sandy beach at Agay, where parking is perhaps a little easier than at most places on this coast, but a shuttle from the site runs to and from the beach several times daily in July and August. It has 164 touring pitches (tents are not accepted) with 10A electricity and a water tap. A number of ‘deluxe’ pitches are available with a heated bathroom, jacuzzi, dishwasher and washing machine. Pitches are on shallow terraces, attractively landscaped with good shade and various flowers, giving a feeling of spaciousness. Esterel Caravaning offers everything you need for the perfect holiday. Access is excellent, and check-in is efficient with English spoken. This took less than 10 minutes from arrival to pitch.
Facilities were very modern and cleaned several times a day and are checked regularly by not only the team but also the site owners, the Laroche family, who created the site 48 years ago and are very proud of what they have achieved. On-site, you will find everything from a meditation/yoga centre overlooking the mountains, a spa and a state-of-the-art water park with five pools, four water slides and four racer slides; they have even created a white sandy beach. A centre stage provides an area to deliver a very high standard of entertainment and shows in the evening. There is a modern bar/restaurant of a standard found in a four-star hotel, except this one has beautiful views over the pool and the Esterel mountains, and there is even an ice cream parlour. A well-stocked supermarket is on site, and a large supermarket complex is around 10 minutes' drive by car. You will also pass three very upmarket Golf Complex on your way.
Great efforts have been made over the last few years to improve the site’s ‘green credentials’, including the planting of over 5,000 flowering shrubs.
