Alan Rogers Review
If you are seeking a less hectic option, 7 Fonts has a rural feel to it, albeit that it is situated on the edge of the town of Agde, tucked away behind the ‘zone industrial’, yet also close to the Canal du Midi. The site, which was a vineyard many years ago, is now owned by the Village Center Group. It is split into two parts separated by a small road. There are 272 level grass pitches, partially separated by shrubs and with varying degrees of shade from tall trees. Most of these are taken by mobile homes and ready erected tents to rent, leaving just 39 touring pitches available with 6/10A electricity. A good sized pool with toboggans and sunbathing area is the main attraction.
Although open from May to September, the site does not come alive until July and August. It is technically on the banks of the Canal du Midi, although it is not possible to see the Canal from the site and you would need to follow the road round to watch the activity at the lock. The towpath provides a good cycle route for the town or nearby Marseillan-Plage; in July and August there is a bus for the beach. Agde is a fascinating town with origins going back to a 5th-century Greek colony. Built in the 1960s, Cap d’Agde is a very popular holiday resort with a large marina and Aqua Centre. There may be some rail noise on the site as the main line runs close by.
Two traditional style toilet blocks. Facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machine. Bar, simple restaurant, takeaway and bread to order. Swimming pool complex with water slides and spa bath (1/5-15/9). Hairdressing and beauty salon (July/Aug). Bicycle hire. Activity and entertainment programme (July/Aug). Mobile homes and equipped tents to rent. Free shuttle bus for beach (high season). WiFi throughout (charged).
From autoroute take exit 34 (Agde, Bessan). Follow N312 (Agde, Vias) then pick up N112 (Agde, Sète). Pass turnings for Agde until road divides, bearing left for Agde and centre commercial. Site is signed some 250 m. up this road. Turn right immediately after small garden centre. Carefully cross junction to site through part of the ‘zone industrial’ and take care at narrow entrance.Link to campsite location map on google
