Zeer verouderd sanitair, het water van de douches loopt overal door en onder. campeer plaatsen zijn niet onderhouden .
Omgeving wel mooi , aan de zee. Komen hier niet meer terug .

Accueil sympathique. Grand emplacement plat bien délimité. Sanitaires entretenus mais vétustes. Face à la mer et l\'ile Madame.

Very nicely located site with a short walk to the coast and local shops. Downside for us was the toilet facilities which were OK, but only just! They need upgrading, which would make this site a high scorer. Others may find the toilets/ showers acceptable.
We would stay again but only for short stays.

Devions rester 5 jours sommes restés 3 ; sanitaires très vétustes + carrelage des sanitaires très glissant et dangereux
et uniquement de l\'eau froide pour 2 jours

Après un premier séjour en mai nous avons choisi ce camping pour séjourner avec nos petits enfants en août. Très grande différence entre les deux dates, sanitaires déplorables en août. Emplacement non ombragé. Déçus dans l\'ensemble, excepté la situation parfaite face à l\'ile Madame, et proche de Rochefort.

Een prachtige camping in een mooie omgeving.
Sanitair gedateerd maar wel schoon. Het was echt genieten op deze camping.

Another of those \"We\'ll just stay for a couple of nights\" sites that stretched into ten days and could have been longer. Quiet low-season Sunday night to Friday when the weekenders descend but the rest of the time it is wonderful. Lovely walks along the sea wall, coastal parkland areas and out on the low-tide causeway to Ile de Maman. Facilities are consistently very clean if dated. This is a very big site with touring pitches scattered so you can be together with others or separated as suits you. Pitches are, in some cases, huge with partial hedging and mature trees, daily (except Tuesdays) bread van at 09:00, and a gentle walk into the town with two mini-supermarkets, patisserie/boulanger and stalls selling the unavoidable oysters - this must be huitre central.
We loved the site and wil probably return but just one word of caution, the office closes promptly at 12 and entry for new arrivals is not possible until exactly 2pm - limited space to wait outside particularly at weekends. A lovely site!

We only stayed one night as we were en route & it was out of season. The welcome was very pleasant and friendly and there was a good choice of pitches with both shady & sunny available. If the toilet facilities were not modern they were definitely cleaner than some sites we\'ve stayed in. The small town was basically closed at this time of year. The big plus here is location. A very short distance from the water\'s edge and very quiet we did like it here. If you are lucky enough to get a sunset anything like one we did you\'ll understand why we will probably be back on this site again some day.
