"Very good campsite in the village with many shady trees and pitches separated by hedges. Many activities, especially for the little ones. Beautiful swimming facility with built-in 'rapid section'."

Travelling party: Seniors


La Grand Metairie near Talmont St Hilaire is a large campsite which accept Acsi cards. Our greeting was pleasant and a good level of English understood which is always helpful to us :-). This site is mainly static vans with 39 touring pitches which offer shade but not too much! We visited at the start of September 2015, initially for a week but ended staying 17 days!

To enter you need to go through a security gate which works on a fob, in the evening no vehicles allowed to move around on site between 11pm and 6am but there is limited parking in front of reception if you are late.

The two toilets blocks and showers are in central locations close to the touring pitches (and one near the restaurant), there separate facilities for male and female, between six and eight in the block which was open and there was not a problem. Toilet paper and seats or hand soap was not provided but in the female toilets there were seats.

There are two main pools with water slides (indoor is heated), a paddling/ shallowpool, water fall with a \'Whirl pool\', jacuzzi and steam room.

Electricity is reported at 10 amps and we had no problems.

Pitches varied in size and required a pin plug (which was offered as a loan) you can not connect to the plug yourself, it is done for you.... To reduce folk using it without paying?

Water is not on all pitches, but can be obtained from the central toilet block area, although my pitch had water and a makeshift drainage point.... There was a TV point but it was not \'terminated\' correctly. We have a small (normal) sky dish which gave us an excellent UK Freesat signal, awesome! (We checked our Aldi sat set up and this work well too).

For kids, there is a petting farm, more a pen really with goats, rabbits, chickens and goose etc. there is table tennis, tennis, boles etc. and there appears to be activities provided daily, according to the notice board.

There is a variety of shops (about 6 miles) nearby, Lidl and Super U.

A church is nearby and sounds to call parishioners and the hour, we did not hear it before 8am.

There are some really nice places to visit in this area and we plan to return (which is high praise as we rarely return).

This is an excellent holiday park. The access to our pitch was narrow and difficult to manovure the caravan, one parked up the pitch was large and level. The facilities are spotless and well maintained. The restaurant is excellent. Our 4yr old loved the pool and playground. We will definetly be returning. would recommend at least 7 nights as the location is also excellent.

Kwamen op deze camping en hebben direct rechtsomkeert gemaakt.
Dit is geen camping maar een dorp!
Jammer dat er in het ACSI-boekje geen onderscheid wordt gemaakt tussen \"kampeer\\\" campings en pretparken.

Chalet vieux avec beaucoup de choses cassées (TV, frigo, cafetière...).
Soirée dansante du vendredi soir: musique beaucoup trop forte alors que le chalet n'était pas tout près.
Acceptable pour le prix, mais ne mérite pas 4 étoiles.

Camping voor mensen die houden van kamperen tussen de stacaravans. Er zijn ongeveer 20 kampeerplaatsen en deze staan niet op een veld apart, maar tussen de stacaravans in. De gastvrijheid laat te wensen over, de regels worden niet nageleefd. Veel lawaai vooral 's avonds, dit gaat door dit in de late uurtjes middernacht. Slordige, rommelige camping waar wij als ons jong gezin niet graag naar terug gaan. Alle animatie in het frans.

Arrivée le 22 août, chalet non prêt avant 18H (16 normalement) et la même chose pour plein de monde, en raison soit disant d'un ménage pas encore fait! Pourquoi y avait-il tant de saleté sous les lits!
Le personnel, surtout à l'accueil n'est pas agréable, le sourire est pourtant gratuit.
Pot d'accueil le dimanche 2 employés qui présentent le camping mais dès le discours fini partent rapidement et laissent les campeurs picorer 2 pizzas pour une soixantaine de personnes et pas assez de verres pour que chacun puisse avoir à boire!
Le club enfant consiste à faire dessiner les enfants. 2 animateurs sont sensés s'en occuper, mais même dans une simple garderie on s'occupe plus d'eux.
Vraiment, pour un 4 étoiles, on s'attend à beaucoup mieux en terme de prestations. Une grosse déception!!!
La piscine n'est pas pratique pour les jeunes enfants, la jacuzzi n'a pas été mis en service de la semaine et les appareils de la salle de muscu fonctionnent à peine.

Eigenaars proberen hun best te doen om er een degelijke camping van te maken . Sanitair was proper op een paar dagen na , maar dat zal wel meer aan de gasten die tijd gelegen hebben , want dit lostte zichzelf op. Gemeenschappelijke BBQ is NIET juist . Wij hebben er speciaal één moeten kopen , mocht de info van ACSI juist geweest zijn , wij hadden een bbq mee ! Gevaarlijk zwembad met versnellingen.Meerdere mensen hadden kleinere of iets diepere sneeën.
