Einfacher Campingplatz direkt am Meer gelegen. Das Sanitär ist älteren Datums, aber sehr sauber gehalten. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Im November waren froh, dass es keinen Schatten hat. Das Meer ist einfach durch 2 Tunnels zu erreichen. Am Strand entlang ist das nächste Dorf einfach zu erreichen, wo man alles zum täglichen Bedarf finden kann. Auch hat es einen Markt, wo frischen Gemüse angeboten wird.
Wir wollten 2 Nächte bleiben und sind aber erst nach 8 Nächte abgereist.

Camping qui ressemble à une aire d'accueil, peu d'arbre, positionnement sur bitume et déploiement du store ou auvent sur une bande herbeuse.
Accueil sympathique.
La piscine est bien mais à l'extérieur du camping.
Sincèrement je ne recommande pas particulièrement à moins de n'y être que pour dormir.

We used the site as a 2 night stop over. Admitted it was well out of season , which showed in the general appearance of the site. Showers and toilets were clean. Although they could do with a soap dispenser to wash hands after toileting. Access was not the easiest.

Arrived at site and greeted by very helpful gentleman at reception. We pitched up near reception and had excellent free wifi throughout our stay, paid a little bit extra to have 10 amp instead of 6 amp. Toilet/shower block very clean and showers had plenty of very hot water. Short walk through 2 tunnels took you to most fabulous beach. Supermarkets quite a few miles away and nowhere to go for a drink of meal within walking distance so felt quite isolated especially as facilities in site where not open because still low season, but overall a great site and would return.
