Very disappointed. We were told on arrival that the site was a little unkempt because they were having trouble finding a gardener. In fact, the place was over run with weeds and brambles. The pool area was very untidy, the shower/footbath area on entry to the swimming pool was full of weeds, leaves and dirt, the sunbeds were dirty, the pool surround needed a good sweeping, the fence around the pool had weedsgrowing through it. The handrails to the pool were cast in a corner with a pile of dirty sun shade stands, no sunshades were available. We were asked to leave the pool as the owner said he had been visited by the “pool police” and the chemical level was not correct. The outdoor seating areas and BBQ were similarly unkempt. Not being able to find a gardener is no excuse, the owners have had 3 months of lockdown to tidy the place up. Not a good experience at all, no masks worn by staff in reception or in the bar, no hand sanitizer in the public areas. No information or site plan given on arrival. This was his CCA-price not worth.

A very friendly site with helpful owners and staff.
Pitches are large and separated by bushes and trees.

Lovely site with nice clean toilets etc. Best book exchange I’ve ever seen. Fantastic Wi-Fi on site, lovely local dog walks nearby. Only used as a stopover but would recommend.

I requested a shady pitch as we have a tent. We timed our arrival for after lunch but no one was around, our pitch number was on a note on the reception door. We duly went to the allocated pitch - it was in full sun! We looked at other listed empty pitches - all were sunny. It should be noted that the photos shown no longer represent the site as most of the trees have been cut right back. We also saw that the pool was dirty. Having hung around for half an hour and still no staff to talk to, we left and won’t return. Very disappointing as Airvault itself looked lovely.

Another site where money is being spent on bistro and bar rather than updating of toilet block (little changed in 15 years). Also a big increase in the number of mobile homes on site. Some pitches looked quite small although ours was spacious and sunny.
