Nice enough site near the beach and small town. Pitches are mainly level and adequate size rather than spacious with little privacy from neighbours. The inside swimming pool is a welcome facility, but on a sunny day, even when it’s cool outside it was like a greenhouse and too hot to spend much time in there. The cover is removable so probably more comfortable when open later in the season. Sanitations are good and well maintained. Small cafe on site offering snacks and fast food. There is no reason not to spend at least a few days here.

Great campsite, pitches were hedged could be cosy in high season. Toilets and showers clean and well kept.Site is within walking distance of lovely beach and village centre.Pool open looked good but did not use as early in the season.Would I stay here again,definitely yes.Cannot comment on food and drink as low season.

This is a little gem of a site. What makes it so, is the attention to detail. It is the little things that make all the difference. The washbasins, with soap dispensers, - next to the toilets. How rare is that! Another washbasin with soap dispenser outside as well. An easily controlled power spray tap by the chemical loo. The extra shelf in the showers. Mobile phone charging by the sinks. Hairdryers. Proper hot water not just tepid. There is not much english spoken but the welcome and big smiles speak volumes. The bar/snack is welcoming and was showing the world cup matches. The price for a bottle of Muscadet is very reasonable. The pitches are not big but they are well maintained. Cleanliness everywhere is “formidable”. So thank you.

Stayed here with a twin axle caravan in early season (April 2017). Pitches are mainly small but as the site was fairly empty there was a small choice of pitches which were accessible. Site staff are very helpful and pleasant. There is a lovely swimming pool. The new modern toilet/shower block is kept immaculate with plenty of hot water. I only found one water point which is at the toilet block.
The surrounding area is very attractive with beaches within walking distance and a visit to Pornic is definitely worth it. We would definitely return.
