Superb site, pitches and location. The Guerande estuary outside the entrance with decent beaches a short walk. Very friendly and attentive staff. Good Restaurants close by. We stayed for 4 nights but could\'ve done more.

Well organised campsite. Good size pitches with excellent facilities. ACSI card accepted. Small shop with bread and pastries in the morning. Good wifi available as extra. Seafood shops and restaurants along the front easily accessible. Supermarket and town centre at least half an hours walk. Although the entrance faces the sea there are low rocky cliffs there with the sand visible only at low tide. Half a mile to the north is a large sandy beach and many more restaurants and bars. Busy in September 2021. Stayed for 5 days cannot comment on sports or child friendly.

What a corking campsite. Lovely staff, water/drains with lots of space for Camping Car. Pitches flat & airy. Bathrooms cleaned at least once a day, the disabled facilities are well laid out and bright. The gardeners take great pride in the local fauna, the many bushes & trees attract lots of birds (I saw a Hoopoe in our hedge), it is lovely. No pool but a great beach 500m away. Lots of great restaurants nearby. We enjoy cycling, and after the disappointment of cycling alongside the canal du midi, this area has well-maintained cycle paths that are well signposted. Definitely a campsite to keep quiet about ... oops!

This is one of our favourite sites. Opposite a tidal beach but only a short walk from the huge sandy beaches of Le Grand Cote between St Palais-Sur-Mer and La Palmyre. Spotless toilets/showers, large sunny or shaded pitches, well maintained site. Easy access to Royan and all local tourist areas by bike or car. Small shop on site selling bread & essentials, supermarkets 2km, small shops and restaurants a short walk.
This site does accept dogs but be warned, one is free but above that are charged.

If you are looking for a site with high standards this should be your first choice in this area.
The showers have hot and cold taps to control both temperature and flow.No pressing the button every 10 seconds! The toilet block is heated,spacious and very clean.
Many pitches are fully serviced. All are well kept with hedge screening and euro plug electrics.
The office staff are very pleasant and helpful.

Clean quiet campsite with large pitches. Ideally positioned for cycling into St.Palais sur Mer or along the coast as far as Ronce Les Bains. Reasonable restaurants nearby. A great place to spend a few days if you like being out and about along the coast.

Excellent site with beach across the road. Better beach within walking distance. Cycle route outside site directly into St Palais Sur Mar centre 3km. Other cycle routes available around area. Map available at reception. Acsi card accepted earlier than most sites in the area

We were told that this site has very small pitches but although there are some that are very crammed together, many are easily large enough for a caravan, awning and car with room to spare. Some are under pine trees on parts of the site and the very heavy cones do drop occasionally so be warned. Most staff are friendly and helpful, facilities excellent and very clean. Small shop on site sells a few essentials and of course baguettes. There is an excellent bread / pastry shop and fish monger a couple of hundred yards away and many restaurants & cafe\'s within a short walk. There is no pool on site but there is a massive sandy beach (Grande Cote) a short stroll away and a very large naturist beach a little further for those wanting an all over tan. Cycle tracks are excellent in the area. The nearest supermarket is about 2km away in St-Palais-Sur-Mer and there are plenty of shops there also. Royan itself is about 10km away with its many shops & restaurants. La Palmyre Zoo is about 6km. There is so much to see and do within a short car or bike ride. This really is an excellent site in the perfect coastal location.

A lovely friendly, but busy site. Caters well for UK campers as has entry and exit keypads on both sides. The pitches are generally spacious and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. The toilet facilities are very good and a wee shop at the entrance sells bread without having to order in advance. Remember to bring your French 2-pin plug as does not accept blue Commando type. Just outside the gate are great walks and cycle paths, with the sea directly in front of the campsite. The vast beach and numerous cafes/restaurants is only a 5 minute dander from the site. Watch out for the dreaded mozzie. The site is also a have for birds, with Jays and Hoopoe frequenting the pitches.
