Lovely Location

This was the very first site we ever went to in France 28 years ago. It's not that we disliked the site or the area. It was more the case of wanting to go further south with the expectation of better weather. Our stay was only for 3 nights, just to remind ourselves what this part of Brittany was like. Although it rained for most of our stay we won't leave it so long to go back to this part of France. The site itself is, as to be expected, different in some areas but very much the same in others. The entrance to the site is about 200 metres from the sea front and access to the site is easy. However, access in and out of a lot of the pitches isn't. The majority of the pitches are not very large and with the fully grown hedges between manoeuvring can be quite testing, especially as many are on a slope. Our 'van is a single axle and an average size but we had to use the motor mover to get it in to place. We also had to unhook the van, use the mover to exit the group of pitches and re-couple the 'van back up to leave. Large areas of the site were probably laid out originally when the average caravan was 12 feet and pulled by a Cortina. The staff were pleasant and the guy in reception, Stefan, was very helpful. The facilities were average to good but could do with a facelift. Our electric kept tripping although there was very little and sometimes nothing at all on to take any power. It could have been as a result of the rain as none of the installations looked particularly weatherproof. After we'd used all 4 plugs on the post, Stefan had checked our 'van and had reset them a few times, he eventually left the unit unlocked for us to reset the trip switches. French Health and Safety at its best. The area has some beautiful sandy beaches and Benodet itself is a lovely seaside town, not particularly commercialised and a walk around the estuary side is delightful.
