Why stay here ...

Situated between Montpellier and Nîmes, and adjacent to an extensive vineyard, this site is efficiently run and appeals to couples and young families looking for a peaceful stay. It has a natural, wooded setting with well-shaded pitches of varying size and the facilities include a restaurant, pool with waterslides, and fitness trail.

The English-speaking owners are proud of the site and work hard to keep it clean and well presented. Tours of the Massereau vineyards can be arranged at reception and the wines are available to buy.

There’s no shortage of things to do in the local area. A cycle path runs from the campsite to the medieval town of Sommières, with a relaxed atmosphere and several good restaurants, and to Caveirac. Nîmes, with its Roman amphitheatre and temple, is within driving distance, while the vibrant town of Montpellier has a lively University district and some fabulous classical architecture.

A high quality site with a excellent facilities, close to charming Sommieres.

We stayed here for a week right at the end of the season, and love the site and area. The site was not busy, but remained animated and it was easy to make friends. The fully serviced pitch was a good size, with 16A EHU, located between two cabins. The one centrally located shower and toilet block was smart, modern and immaculately clean, but must be very busy high season, and can be a bit of a walk from pitches on the edges of the site. The bar and restaurant building, with shop (but little stock as send of season closure loomed) is most attractive, and the food good if with enormous portions. Disappointingly the bar, restaurant shop closed a few days before the end of season, but the End of Season Party a couple of days before closure was great fun with a great buffet and live music. The staff are outstandingly friendly, helpful and efficient. Sommieres, a bit over a mile away along the cycle route, is charming with delightful bars and restaurants in the old centre, and a good Intermarche on the outskirts: the Saturday market is a “must see”. Bike hire at 19€ a day seems steep, but for those without a car, bikes are almost a necessity. There is a cheap but reliable bus service from the town to Nîmes, only 40 minutes away, and makes a great excursion. We very much hope to return.

This site gets better and better

Spent 4 nights here in early May this year. Last time we were there was May 2016. The site has gone from strength to strength. The restaurant has expanded and the standard of comfort and cuisine is excellent. The facilities are excellent and regularly scrubbed. The staff are lovely, friendly and helpful. The pools are excellent and a walk or a cycle to Sommieres (where Lawrence Durrell spent the last years of his life) is the jewel in the crown.

Great week spent here

I agree with MelliferaRob, Margarita must have stayed at a totally different site!  We spent a week here in August, the facilities were clean and well maintained, the staff friendly and helpful. Our fellow campers were kind and considerate (Margarita, we are professionals working within education so have no choice but to take our holiday during August). We found all the children we met were nice and courteous. The pool was not over busy even at the height of the holiday season.  It was not noisy during the night  (and I am a very light sleeper!) Access over the bridge is tight if you have a large outfit as we do. Had a French driver annoyed and shouting insults at us, but I just waved, smiled and blew him some kisses (even though we had been driving for over 9 hours).  Yes there are plenty of trees, but we were glad of these for shade as it was very hot.  As we have a large caravan we have a motor mover so this assisted us in getting into our pitch.  Yes, the pitches are dusty, but that is what you get in the South of France. If you want lush grassy pitches Margarita, stay in Brittany or Normandy, or stay in Britain! We walked into Sommieres from the site and enjoyed the atmosphere of this lovely town.  There were also lovely beaches within easy reach.  Will definitely be returning.

Is this the same place?

Not sure where the Hertfordshire Caravanner, Margarita, stayed but certainly not at the Domaine de Massereau that we know !
