Alan Rogers Review

La Cigale is an attractive little site with charm and ambience where the owners extend a very warm welcome. Small and beautifully maintained, it is set amid a variety of trees that give some dappled shade. M. Pallet’s floral displays add colour to the 44 neatly hedged, grassy touring pitches (100 sq.m. all with 6A electricity, 26 also with water and a drain). There is a small, unheated swimming pool and a paddling pool. The bar has a terrace where drinks, meals and snacks are served under the shade of large plane trees. Nine delightful chalets for rent are spacious, modern and very well presented.

This is an exceptional area for cycling, with designated routes. Across the bay lie bustling Arcachon and the enormous Dune de Pilat, easily reached by ferry from Cap Ferret.


Well equipped toilet block includes a family room with two showers and facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machine and dryer. Motorhome services. Simple shop, bar, terrace, meals, snacks, pizza takeaway (all 24/6-10/9). Swimming and paddling pools (25/5-12/9). Small play area. Entertainers for children and adults in July/Aug. Free donkey cart rides every Sunday in season. Charcoal barbecues are not permitted. WiFi (free).
