Why stay here ...

This large, busy resort has everything active families could possibly hope for. There’s golf and fishing, while the active and adventurous can try archery, paintball, climbing and even a treetop ropes course. New for 2019 is "the dome" which will cover the existing aquatic park and wave swimming pool, alongside an outdoor pool area, allowing enjoyment no matter the weather. The site has a range of restaurants, some of which are open all season, as well as a mini supermarket and souvenir shop.

Although it’s possible to have a great holiday here without leaving the resort, those who do will find plenty to do nearby. Mont St Michel is within 30 minutes’ drive, as is Dinan with its old stone houses and waterside restaurants. Closer to the site, Dol de Bretagne has an interesting cathedral and is the centre of some Breton legends.

Lovely Site but some improvements required for large pitches

I stayed here for two nights in July with my family. This is a very large site but is very clean and well presented. The swimming pools are excellent and I spent four hours with my son outside in the heated pool while it was raining. Despite the fact the site is very large it was very quiet from 11pm. A couple of nice restaurants on site with one doing various takeaway food including cooked chickens. However, the bar was quite small and whilst the outdoor patio was okay, it didn't have any shelter to cater for the weather in Northern France. It rained for two days but was warm so disappointing that canopies were not available. The main disappointing feature with this site was the facilities close to my pitch. I booked a large pitch, which overlooked the lawn and the chateau. The pitch was separated by two large planters and despite plenty of room, everyone was encroaching on other pitches. This was the only site in France that I visited where you were not escorted to your pitch. Not a massive problem if you are staying for a couple of nights. The pitch was close to a newly built toilet block, with showers, individual cubicles with sinks and toilets. It was one big area, which didn't have separate areas for ladies and gentleman. The area was clean with plenty of hot water. Directly outside was a dishwashing area, however hot water didn't appear to make it from the toilet/shower block and I quickly realised why people were going into the shower block with bowels to bring back hot water. The map showed a chemical toilet disposal point close by, but I couldn't locate it. I asked a couple in the next caravan who told me it was the hole in the ground, which had a tap. Yes you guessed it this is the same place that I had just filled my fresh water carriers. Personally, I thought this was very poor, fresh water, waste and chemical toilet disposal in the same place. I have to say that the special pitches were much better, in a different location with a dedicated chemical disposal point. If you do visit this site, I would recommend a special pitch.

Big, busy resort with something for everyone in excellent location to explore Brittany

We visited for 12 nights in August 2016. Our children loved this site so much they asked to return again this year so we are booked for a second stay in 2017. The tropical indoor pool is much smaller than pictured with a very small river section (almost just little bend round a rock) and can get quite crowded. Head down there by 11 am if you have little Ones or like it quiet. The huge wave pool is excellent as are the other outdoor pools. The slides in one aqua park are abit dangerous as you can't see the children at the bottom before you get on the slide so your kids are at risk of being landed on, I just asked my kids to avoid these slides. There are loads of activities for children and teenagers but most are contained in central area away from pitches so peaveful holiday is still possible with the option of all the action. Dol de Bretagne and Dinan are lovely towns with excellent cafes and restaurants and dinnan has interesting castle and museum about local history. St marlo is very close and lovely historic walled city. The children loved the regular onsite entertainment and tried lots of activities. You could stay the whole two weeks and have an action pack never boaring holiday. This site was recommended to us by friends who visit every year and we can certainly see why. We had fantastic holiday.

What a fabulous Site!

If you have children (& even if you don't) this Site is fantastic. There is so much for children to do, kids will absolutely love it. Without a car there doesn't seem a lot close by ..... But that doesn't matter, the activities & facilities are more than enough. We only stayed 1 night on our trip to the Vendee, but would have no hesitation of returning for longer. Without doubt this the best site we have ever visited.

Excellent for families

What a fantastic site in Brittany this is.  While it seems to be very large, the site is spacious and open so never seems crowded even in peak season.  We had a Large pitch and it was at least twice the size of those you would expect in the UK with hedges on 3 sides so nice and secluded too.   We were close to one of the more modern blocks of facilities and they were always nice and clean.  The on site shops, restaurants and pools were very good and didn't charge too much of a premium - the charges for activities were also very reasonable. There are also plenty of nearby towns with supermarkets and French Street Markets so you have plenty of options for food and day trips out as well. There was plenty of space to walk around among the trees and explore, lots of cycle tracks and a great atmosphere.  For our first foray into caravanning in France, this was a fantastic introduction and will be hard to beat!

Wonderful family holiday

Just back from 2 fabulous weeks in Domaine des Ormes. Booked onto huge pitch near new toilet block. Pitches separated by lovely hedges so you had great privacy. Went with 3 boys aged 15, 12 and 4 in our caravan. Should have taken a tent for older boys as there was enough room on pitch for them to camp, and others seemed to do this. This site is huge, with lots of other companies hiring mobile homes, safari tents, tree houses etc. There were several "camping" areas and ours was about 5-8 minutes walk from main centre of resort. There was a Spar shop which was always well stocked, a pizzeria (sit in or take away) a bar and a restaurant. Great fireworks display on Friday night, circus on Wednesday night, and the other nights usually had some sort of theme organised. Older boys benefited most from all activities on site. 3 swimming pools, water skiing, pony trekking, pedalos, bike hire, 3G football pitch, high ropes course, climbing wall, crazy golf. We picked a great couple of weeks for weather, and also it wasn't as busy as it will probably be in a week or two. Free wifi in reception, pub, restaurant, and pizzeria. St. Michaels Mount nearby is a must to see. Supermarket in nearby Dol de Bretagne. Overall a fabulous holiday which we will remember for a long time
