Nice site

Nice site in the trees by the river, with big shady full service pitches. Staff were very friendly and helpful, they also arranged a day canoeing down the Tarn which was the highlight of our holiday. Pool complex was very good, Men's showers were cold but we've got our own.

Would go back in a heartbeat!

We had a week here in late July early August 2018, in some exceptionally hot weather, with temperatures regularly hitting high 30s. The site was extremely busy, mainly with Dutch families in caravans and tents, they outnumbered the French and Brit visitors by about 4 to 1! If you are looking for total peace and quiet all day, this is not the site for you. However it was quiet every night from 11pm to about 7am, so we felt that was very acceptable for a family orientated site. Despite being so busy, everything kept working well, and the facilities stayed remarkably clean. We never had a queue for a shower, and there seemed to be an inexhaustible supply of hot water! Pitches are quite close together, we had no issues with this as we like to get to know the neighbours. I have seen feedback that suggests you have to wait a long time at reception to be helped. This is probably because the staff there are excellent, and really do take the time to help you properly, instead of rushing through to get rid of you. They helped us book a fabulous day out canoeing on the River Tarn which we thoroughly enjoyed, and felt was good value at about £40 for 2 adults for 6 hours activity. The bar/restaurant is friendly and good value - 18.50 euros for a set 3 course meal. They don't try and overcharge like some sites. Entertainment was, shall we say, adequate. We had music a couple of nights and there was some children's entertainment at other times. We didn't go there for West End standard shows! Millau is a pleasant town with most facilities, and again is fair value for money in restaurants etc. It's an easy 15 minute walk from the site. The area surrounding is beautiful, and there are so many activities you could easily spend a long holiday there and not get bored. From splashing around in the river alongside the site to paragliding, you name it it's there. Our only issue all week was that the pitch we had to start with was a little too much on full sun for our tastes, although this was exceptional weather. There are many with better shade than we had, but the site were very helpful in trying to re-site us. We had to move to a superior pitch, but it only cost 9 euros to upgrade, so we cannot complain about that. Be careful when booking to reserve accordingly - the superior pitches generally tended to have more shade - but not all! I'm sure we will be back!

Does what it says on the tin!

We did a one night stop here on our way back from Spain. Overall my review is positive and one must be conscious that the site had only just opened for the season. That said it was scruffy and had an unkept feel to it - I felt that they could have made more of an effort in terms of cutting the grass and so on. To its credit, the facilities were certainly on a par with most other 4 star sites in France with good quality washrooms. We ate at the on site restaurant which was equally untidy but the food was good if not a little expensive. The site were very helpful on the telephone with road instructions as we got lost on the way in. The scenery and local area is stunning but beware of the entry and exit route - you can cook your brakes on the way in and boil over on the way out - the road is very steep. Good sized pitches. Would we return? Yes I would to give it the benefit of the doubt and see what it is like mid or late season.

Good site and lovely location

The site is on the edge of the lovely town of Millau which is situated at the confluence of two rivers and overlooked by a nearby mountain, from the top of which daring paragliders launch themselves and ride the thermals. The pitches are adequately sized, though the trees on their entrances make it quite tricky getting caravans on and off-good job we have a mover fitted. We were near one of the shower and toilet blocks which are clean but I really didn't appreciate the lack of toilet seats! There are pools and there was some form of entertainment though we didn't go ourselves. My biggest gripe was when we were coming in, someone had parked just inside the entrance. Not knowing the site, I thought it was a queue and pulled up behind. I then found that the back of my caravan was blocking the roundabout and several angry motorists sounded their horns. They ought to mark that area "no parking!" A very nice site nevertheless and one I would come back to if in the area again.

Good Site, mostly.

We have visited this site several times.  Staff are friendly and helpful, and pitches are generous in size, mostly shaded under trees.  There are two concerns relating to early-season visits (May >).  1). Lack of security:  there were night time prowlers round our caravan (and around the caravans of our Dutch neighbours) on two occasions.  There does not appear to be any security measures in place outside of high season, despite comments to the contrary in continental sites book.    2).  Early in the year many of the trees shed large quantities of cotton-wool-like floating seeds which get everywhere and adhere to, and can mark caravan and awning.

Beautiful Site

Our first visit, but hopefully it will not be our last. The site is right next to a lovely fast flowing river with its own shingle beach (small). The pitches are fantastic. We have a 8m long Motorhome but you could lose it on some of the pitches all came with 10amp hook-ups water and drainage. There is a pitch for all, small to enormous. The onsite restaurant menu is a bit limited but hey the town of Millau is only a short walk away where you can get all types of food from takeaways to posh restaurants. The town itself is lovely if a little down on it's luck. obviously the main attraction is the famous viaduct and if you approach from the South do stop at he view point. Alternatively if you're coming from the North stop at the Millau Aire. It's a fantastic site. In fact we drove back 9km from the site to just drive over it.

Ideal Location

Visited this site 3 times now in the last 7 years for around 10 days each. A well maintained site with helpful staff. A lovely pool area with 3 pools (1 for paddling, 1 for just a relaxing sit down, and a family pool). Facilities cleaned early morning and mid to early afternoon. Pitches are of a good size and the Grand Pitches are massive, perfect to accommodate a caravan, full awning and small tent with space for an outside table and chairs. The river beach has pebbles, but is a joy to swim in, with shallow areas for younger children. Regular patrols around the site through the day and night by staff for the security and safety of all. The only down side in our opinion, is there is an on site bar with entertainment until around 11:30PM, but his may suit some people. The town of Millau is in a stunning location in the base of the Tarn Valley, the town itself is very nice and through the summer has an evening food market on a Monday night with food and gifts from the local area. The restaurant on site is OK but mainly burgers and pizzas, however within 400yds of the site is a nice restaurant, there are also good eateries in the town it self. Lots of things to do in the area too. Kayaks can be hired locally with transport provided, paragliding if your brave enough, and lots of other family activities. Just to the north west of the town there are some large lakes with sailing, paddle-boarding and sandy beaches The Mediterranean Sea and beautiful sandy beaches is only 1.5 hours away and is a great day out. This is our favourite holiday location, and though we like going to different places, every couple of years we seem to yearn to go back to Millau.

Stop over to and from Spain

On the way down to Spain the pitches that my daughter and my self were allocated were very small, and not well marked as other people were using some of our pitches. Coming back the site did manage to find better pitches for us. Falcilities were quite good, what we saw. Probably would only stay for a couple of days and then move on if traveling that way again. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Ok for overnight

Used this site as an overnight stop on our way further South. Site has good facilities, restaurant, pool etc however not a great deal for children to do. Site is mainly used by Dutch, and plenty of over nighters, we used the site last year as well however this this time it seemed to be litte untidy, the site looked as though it was in need of a good tidy. Toilet, shower facilities ok, however no toilet seats or paper provided. Ok for a stop over, for a night or two, but in my opinion not for longer.

kayaking on the Tarn

Pool nice and clean, the jacuzzi was sometimes spoilt with teenagers bombing into it, it was lovely and warm.The lifegaurd tended to ignore any bad behaviour and only picked on certain people who didnt wear the correct swim wear (budgie smugglers!!) We booked a large pitch which backed onto the small road which should be for cycles and runners but cars did speed along sometimes so would go nearer the lake. However the area is fantastic, you want walk in to Millau, the huge market is great. Canoeing is a must along with a drive round the gorge,  visit the viaduct too. the lake/beach area needs a tidy up as weedy and stoney,,take beach shoes. will go back to Millau. The bar and restaurant was nice with good service.
