What can I say about this place…… ! We chose this place as it said it had a shuttle bus to the surf beach ( in a motorhome so no other form of transport)also it had electric bikes to hire ( in a motorhome so no other no other form of transport), needed WiFi to plan and explore local area or book a restaurant online. No shuttle bus or surf school, electric bike always broken or owners son taken them and not returned!! Couldn’t pre book for another day either. WiFi was €2 for 2hrs and very poor signal, no mobile dated either due to no service! Staff were quite rude. Shop poorly stocked and shut from 12-5pm, Restaurant on site had nice food but very bad service and attitude. Asked about car hire was told ‘not possible’ but after paying for WiFi I quite quickly managed to call europcar in Concarneau myself however I had to collect and return to Concarneau as no drop off service.There is no cafe, restaurants or shops within walking distance. Kids enjoyed the pool and trampolines but no obvious entertainment for children other than mass football! This is not a motorhome friendly site.
Comment from the Club:
We were concerned to read your review of Camping Le Raguenes Plage, particularly as this has always proved a very popular choice. We have discussed the points raised in the review with the campsite owner and would like to clarify a number of the issues.
There is a surf school at Dourveil Plage, around 400m from the site. However, this activity is very dependent on suitable sea conditions and, unfortunately, conditions were not suitable for a part of the high season, resulting in the cancellation of this activity. There is a shuttle bus from the campsite to the surf school, but only when the activity is taking place. The campsite manager is very insistent that all 'animation' is for all campsite users and there has never been an occasion when any nationality is excluded. Some events are predominantly in French (although many are also in English) but every effort is made to provide activities likely to appeal to all guests. The campsite has a number of electric bikes for hire, as well as traditional bikes. Electric bikes are very popular and frequently booked out in peak season although every effort is made to share the bikes fairly amongst interested guests. There are plans to increase the number of electric bikes.
There is a bus service from Raguenes to Concarneau in the high season suitable for anyone not wishing to use their own vehicle, although the buses are infrequent so car hire may therefore be an alternative. The campsite recommends a local firm who are happy to deliver cars to the site. Staff at the car hire company speak fluent English.
The new campsite shop is open every morning and late afternoon, but not throughout the day (in common with many other campsites) and is well stocked with all 'essentials'
The campsite is located in the hamlet of Raguenes and is around 4km from the nearest town, Nevez (where there is a good range of shops, restaurants etc). We therefore consider that this site may not be suitable for some motorhomers, unless they have independent transport (eg bicycles) and therefore do not flag the site as being 'motorhome friendly' in our brochure or on our website
