Like a French Centre Parcs!

We needed a site near to St Malo after our ferry crossing so picked this one for 3 nights, and were pleasantly surprised! It's a huge site, but we also found we could walk easily to everything. The shower block looked brand new and was kept clean. There were fantastic play areas for the kids, lots of activities (at a reasonable cost), like pony rides, zip wire, Segway). The indoor pool dome had just opened and was amazing for the kids. The restaurants served good food, and we found the staff (English speaking) and very friendly. We would definitely return. Having read other reviews about this site, I'm not sure we went to the same place. We thought it was great for families.

Strangely Disappointing - booked 5 nights stayed 1

We arrived here and were greeted in a rather dated and dark reception by a receptionist who seemed a little confused by who we were. Another receptionist then took over and charged us 14.20 euros supposedly for taxes. When we questioned this we were given a rather vague answer about the environment and handed two purple bracelets, to be worn at all times. (We had been in France for 11 weeks at this point and never been charged this much for tax). We were told where to go which was a very dark pitch so we drove around to find somewhere a little more open and sunny. When we informed them we wanted to move they said we could be charged more if we had a larger pitch. At this point in time the site was not exactly full and the atmosphere was rather that of an old holiday camp with more rules and regulations than completely necessary. In fact the atmosphere of the whole site was rather strange and not what we expected from a '5 star site'. So after one night we moved to a wonderful site just outside St Malo run by the Yelloh Group and which turned out to be a lovely site to finish our 12 week tour of France in. To finish on a positive note the site did have indoor and outdoor pools for families.

A Disappointing Experience

We only stayed one night so we could be in St Malo the next morning for the 10:30 ferry to Portsmouth. Two gripes: 1. Yes, it was the night that England lost to Croatia, but did the family of 4 on the next pitch have to swear so much when they came back from the bar ? An unpleasant experience. 2. We ate in the Restaurant at 18:30 before the match started. We spent 36 euros on a glass of wine, a small beer & two main courses. My wife had fish with an almost inedible sauce & frozen vegetables, and I had a pizza which had barely been heated up from frozen. Very disappointing and very poor value for money. Unlikely we will stay on this site again.

The best showers we have seen in France!

We spent ten days at this site in early July before the UK schools broke up so there were a few pre school children there. It was very quiet with lots of spare pitches. Our pitch was big enough even for our 7.5m caravan, awning and car. The services were located at the rear of the pitch but within easy reach to connect the water, electricity and waste. The showers etc were the best we have seen each being of a plastic pod construction which were cleaned at least twice a day and were easily cleaned after use with the provided tool. The bar opening hours increased to between 1600 and 2300 hours while we were there and we had a meal at the restaurant which was very reasonabley priced and presented well. There was plenty to see around the area with Mount St Michel about an hour away and Dinard and Dinan worth a visit. We found a town called Dol about 45 minutes away which is also worth a visit. One of the best Castels sites we have visited and would no hesitation making a return visit.

Beware sites near the end of the season.

Basically a good site, but, we went towards the end of their season when the restaurant and bar were closed and the shop have very little in it. Luckily we had taken our bikes so could cycle the 3 miles to the local town where there was a supermarket and several bars/restaurants.

Ooooh, this place is posh but what's with the wristbands!

Stayed here for one night as we were getting the ferry from St Malo. It is really posh, pools excellent, inside pool heated to bath temperature and looks like new build, bathrooms also looked new, pitches good, very peaceful, ideal for the morning ferry from St Malo. Three different bouncy castles, lots of activities etc etc Downsides: It is expensive, especially when you allow for the costs of the wrist bands. We were only there for one night and the wrist band was annoying, had we been there for several days then I would have cut it off and lived with the consequences I think.

Nice if you like Trees!

We stayed here as it was close to St Malo (approx. 40 mins) for the Ferry home. the site was very well kept but most of the pitches were surrounded by Trees so lots of shade, which is not so good if you like to take some Sun. Also could not use the Satellite dish but not so much of a problem as we were only there for one night. Our only real complaint was the insistence of having to wear a cheap hospital type wrist band, that was embarrassing when we went to a nice restaurant for our evening meal and could only be removed with a pair of scissors!!.

Pleasant, convenient & well managed

Stayed here for 8 nights from 5 July to 13th on route home. Lovely site with excellent facilities. Pitches are generous - able to accommodate our Fifth Wheel. Would definitely return if in the area again.

Well worth a visit

Stayed here from June 25 to July 11th.  Facilities are very good, especially for families and the staff in reception are brilliant.  Pitches are big and some are shaded by trees.  Great for visiting N. Brittany. Highly recommended.
