Alan Rogers Review

Sunêlia L’Hippocampe is a friendly, family run, all action, riverside site (no swimming), with families in mind, situated in a beautiful area of France. The perfumes of thyme, lavender and wild herbs are everywhere and the higher hills of Haute-Provence are not too far away. There are 447 level, numbered pitches (162 for touring units), medium to very large (130 sq.m) in size. All have 10A electricity and 140 have water and drainage, most being separated by bushes and cherry trees. Some of the best pitches border the lake or are in the centre of the site. The waterpark, restaurant, bar, takeaway and shop have all been completely renewed. Games, aerobics, competitions, entertainment and shows, plus a daily club for younger family members are organised in July and August and organised activities also at Easter and Whitsun.

A soundproofed underground disco is set well away from the pitches and is very popular with teenage customers. Staff tour the site at night ensuring a good night’s sleep. The site is, however, much quieter in low season and with its good discounts is the time for those who do not want or need entertaining. The Gorges du Verdon is a sight not to be missed and rafting, paragliding or canoe trips can be booked from the site’s own tourist information office. Being on the lower slopes of the hills of Haute-Provence, the surrounding area is good for both walking and mountain biking. All in all, this is a very good site for an active or restful holiday and is suitable for outfits of all sizes. English is spoken.
