Why stay here ...

This large resort is set in the grounds of the Château des Ormes and has everything active families could possibly hope for. There’s an 18 hole golf course and fishing on site, while the active and adventurous can try archery, paintball, climbing and even a treetop adventure course. There is a new covered dome which covers the aqua park and wave swimming pool, and alongside there is an outdoor pool area, allowing enjoyment no matter the weather. The site has a range of restaurants and bars, some of which are open all season, as well as a 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.

Far too busy for us

Les Ormes, Domaine and Resort

This site is aptly named as a resort as it reminded us of Alton Towers. We purposely went out of high season thinking it would be quieter !! How wrong!! Coach loads of children arrived each day making it very busy. The only eating places were fast food outlets as the restuarant was closed for a seminar. The pool area was ideal for families and a child's idea of heaven! However for a keen length swimmer it was a nightmare. The outdoor pool was small and the water very warm. It would be a good idea to allow this one area to be used by adult lane swimmers only. Toilet block was great and very clean-no complaints but the pitch we were given was not well maintained and the staff had to search for the waste as it was so overgrown, The shop was adequate and sold fresh croissants baked on the premises. Reception staff were very welcoming and accommodating-However the whole place was just too big and busy for us .

Style over substance

Les Ormes, Domaine and Resort
It's a great site for families there is no doubt but we are here for 1 night as couple with dogs on 30th October when the site will closed on 2nd November. At €41.80 it is the most expensive site we have stayed and much of the facilities are closed already. No hard standing pitches and grass pitches are sodden. Also, there is no specific dog exercise area and wi-fi us only available in 2 specific areas or expensive to purchase.

Lovely Site but some improvements required for large pitches

Les Ormes, Domaine and Resort
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

Les Ormes, Domaine and Resort
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!

Les Ormes, Domaine and Resort
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.
