Séjours début juin, camping dortoir qui ne mérite pas 4 étoiles. Accueil impersonnel, documentation appropriée proposée. Bien situé au centre et piste cyclable. Emplacements pas tjs facile d\'accès et surface minimum. Wifi total et gratuit. Toilettes propres mais pas de papier. Pas de bar, pas d\'alimentation, pas de restaurant, pains industriel. Gros problème: les abeilles sont exterminée au point d\'eau! Tout sauf sympathique! Pour les gens qui aiment la nature.

Door de ACSI card goede prijs-kwaliteit verhouding. Zonder kaart redelijk aan de prijs. Sanitair etc goed bijgehouden. Van alle campings op het eiland ligt deze het meest centraal waardoor echt alles binnen fietsafstand is.

Ondanks september, vrij druk bezette camping. Niet storend druk. Sanitair schoon. Prachtig gelegen midden in wijnvelden, vlakbij ruig strand. Ideale omgeving voor fietstochten. Kampeerplekken wat kaal, zanderig, redelijk privé.

Vanaf 27-08-2014 daar 24 dagen gestaan.prima camping,vriendelijk personeel vanaf 1 sept.ging het winkeltje dicht maar je kon dagelijks vers brood bestellen.zwembad heel mooi en prima onderhouden !
sanitair prima en ook dagelijks schoongemaakt. Veel bomen dus lastig met satellietschotel. Rustige camping en een prachtig eiland om te fietsen. 600 m lopen naar een heerlijk zandstrand. Wat ons betreft echt een aanrader !

situation du camping excellente bien centré sur l\'ile
Sanitaire très propre, points d\'eau proches des emplacements.
personnel agréable plage à 900m.siège de piscine en nombre suffisant et confortable.
si je devais venir avec mes petits enfants je trouve dommage que le petit bassin ne soit pas protégé du soleil.
Je reviendrais sans aucun doute

Extremely helpful staff. Very centrally situated for touring island. Plenty of quiet roads and cycle tracks adjacent. The island is excellent for those who like safe and easy cycling. The village of La Coularde had character and enough shops to cater for holiday needs. Site was 10 minutes walk from lovely beach, close to bus stops for touring island or visiting La Rochelle at reasonable cost. A bonus was an excellent swimming pool with a retractable roof for cooler days. Pitches were good but a bit tight for large outfits, but ok with use of mover.

Ideale camping voor fietstochtjes op het eiland vanwege de centrale ligging Er is geen winkel op de camping tijdens het voor seizoen, maar het dorp ligt op 2 á 3 km. Daar is een grote supermarkt. De zee ligt op 1 km van de camping. Erg fascinerend vanwege het grote eb en vloed verschil. Plaatsen zijn ruim en afgebakend. Sanitair is netjes, heerlijk warm water bij het douchen en afwassen. Gezellige markten, leuke haventjes.
Aanrader: een dagje La Rochelle, met de fiets over de tolbrug (voor fietsers gratis).

This site is very formally laid out, with the pitches in long rows. There are tall hedges surrounding each pitch which makes them reasonably private. The site is quite attractive with plenty of trees. There is a pool, although we didn\'t use it. The toilets and showers are shared (male / female) but are very clean - they seemed to be cleaned at least twice each day. There is a small village quite near to the site, with a small supermarket, a market and a few shops. Cycle lanes lead from the site and it is possible to easily cycle along the coast to St Martin and beyond. The site staff were courteous and spoke English. We enjoyed our stay here in May.
