The site comes after a long haul down the A63 from Bordeaux behind so many lorries it's hard to see a gap between them.
The staff are friendly and after we put our order in for croissants for the morning, they took us to our pitch. We had booked a larger, all service pitch as we were going to be there for 3 days. All went well until it came to the electrics, whereupon we found it needed a 2 pin connector. Back to reception where they loaned us one, thank goodness. The site is well equipped with a pool, the usual washing facilities and a large shower/toilet block, plenty of bins and WiFi at a reasonable rate.
Any negatives? Well the only one we found, and it was quite significant, was the pollarding of the trees all around us from 8.30 in the morning until dusk. The noise was deafening. If you are due here in the next couple of weeks, expect it to still be going on.
Other than that, a lovely site, made better by the warm winter sun and beaches close by for our dog to run on.

We got a far better deal and WIFI reception at a site we stayed the previous night for 18 euros all included. But what really turned us off were the unisex loos!

We stayed 2 nights in October 2013 on our way down to Spain & 2 nights March 2014 on return. It is a good site with good facilities & in a good location but we were disappointed with cleanliness of toilets & showers. During the 2 days we were there in October the facilities weren't cleaned at all and during our March stay cleaned once so they became quite grubby.
