It's Ok

We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of August and the site was probably only about 25% full with British and Dutch caravanners and campers. The French seemed to occupy the chalets around the site. The lad in reception was friendly and showed us to our pitch. We'd booked a fully serviced pitch and he gave us a choice of 3. We refused all 3. They were all on a slope and looked like an allotment or cabbage patch. No grass whatsoever, just stumps and so deeply rutted and covered in molehills, I doubt we would have got off when it rained. He seemed somewhat bewildered that we weren't happy with the choice. When I asked if we could have one of the other dozen or so empty adjacent, flat pitches with some vegetation covering them he said "I must check" and went back to the office. He returned to give us the OK. For the 4 nights we were there nobody else arrived to take any of the other pitches. In Estate Agent speak the site itself is pleasantly secluded. The 'middle of nowhere' to everyone else, which does make for a peaceful environment. Especially as the pool, shop and bar are located in the old outbuildings to the chateau, the other side of the access road. The drawback is that everywhere requires a car journey. The facilities were kept very clean but the site was relatively empty. We didn't use the bar or restaurant in the evening but did sit on the terrace one afternoon for a couple of drinks. It was nice and the staff were very friendly. The pools seemed quite small but adequate. The general area is fairly uninteresting compared with areas such as Brittany, the Loire, Dordogne or the Basque Country. When you've seen one salt marsh you've seen them all. The coast around Piriac-sur-Mer, La Turballe, Lerat and Le Croisic is lovely and Guerande is worth a visit.
