GOUMAN JM, on this campsite in May 2015

Travelling party: Single

Average: 7.2

Camping propre, bien situé et bien tenu. Le camping est assez proche d\'un petit centre commercial. La plage et Barcarès centre ne sont pas très loin.
Accueil : excellent accueil personnel très aimable, sérieux et efficace. Les sanitaires sont propres et entretenus par du personnel sérieux. Belle piscine chauffée. Les emplacements ombragés ou non (au choix) sont de belles dimensions. Prise en charge des données environnementales (camping labellisé à ce titre). Vous aurez en outre la chance d\'y voir régulièrement des écureuils !
J\'ai passé un excellent séjour au camping « California » et je remercie toute l\'équipe pour sa gentillesse, son sérieux et son implication.
NB: non concerné par \"adaptation aux enfants\"et snack non ouvert.

IL est très regretable que les sanitaires ne soit ouvert toute l'année. L'emplacement est un peu petit.

een goed onderhouden nette camping.
zalig zwemmen in het verwarmde zwembad.
wifi tamelijk duur en zeer trage ontvangst
de broodjes lekker vers en knapperig
de plaatsen redelijk groot.
wij komen nog terug wanneer we in de buurt zijn

We hebben hier in mei 2012 een paar dagen gestaan, op de terugweg uit Spanje. Een verademing na de spaanse campings. Vriendelijk personeel. Prima, schoon sanitair. Vrije keus in de plaats(dat kan in mei) Stil. Op 2 km van de zee. Brood op de camping. We komen hier zeker wel weer een keer langs.

The toilets are very dangerous. I have slipped in 2011 and was operated in the hospital in Perpignan. The staff is rude and does not lend support. Attention, they are not insured.
