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!
