Travelling party: Young couple


Wir hatten uns den Platz unterwegs rausgesucht und hatten eine lange Anreise aus Spanien. Leider schließt die Rezeption in der Nebensaison schon um 18 Uhr und wir waren 10 min zu spät und konnten nicht mehr rein. An der Tür hing ein Hinweis auf einen nahegelegenen Wohnmobilstellplatz, allerdings nur auf Französisch und ohne Lageplan. So haben wir ewig gebraucht, das zu verstehen und den Platz zu finden. Letztlich hat es uns nichts gebracht, weil es dort keine Toilette gab und unser Bus keine hat. Wir waren sehr verärgert, dass die Rezeption nur so kurz offen hatte, das haben wir nirgendwo sonst erlebt. Wir waren nicht die einzigen, die vor verschlossener Tür standen, u.a. auch ein Paar, das reserviert hatte und ohne Ergebnis die dafür angegebenen Nummer anrief.

We only stayed one night as we were en route & it was out of season. The welcome was very pleasant and friendly and there was a good choice of pitches with both shady & sunny available. If the toilet facilities were not modern they were definitely cleaner than some sites we\'ve stayed in. The small town was basically closed at this time of year. The big plus here is location. A very short distance from the water\'s edge and very quiet we did like it here. If you are lucky enough to get a sunset anything like one we did you\'ll understand why we will probably be back on this site again some day.

Toffe camping, ruime kampeerplaats. Bakker komt \'s morgens langs. Kip aan het spit / visboer / ijsjesman / ... Komen langs op de camping. Het strand is enkel de straat oversteken, i\'le madam heel leuk. Dorp is op wandelafstand, gezellige plek. Komen hier zeker terug.

Abseits des Trubels gelegener, rechts großer Camping; ordentliche, durch Büsche und Bäume abgegrezte Stellplätze. Die Sanitärs sind unzeitgemäß aber stets sauber. Sehr freundliches, auskunftbereites Personal!. In der Vorsaison ist man hier und im Dorf mit dem Nötigsten versorgt und hat einen guten Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen oder Radtouren. In der weitern Umgebung gibt es zahlreiche attraktive Ausflugsziele.

Travelling party: Family with children, various ages


This is a very nice municipal campsite. It's located at the end of a small peninsula, in a lovely, quiet seaside village. Ille madam can be reached by a walkway at low tide, it's a beautiful place to visit, with stunning views. We liked the pool here, there's plenty of loungers and an attendant who keeps everyone safe. The beach is nice for sunbathing and swimming, it's 5 minutes walk from the site. There's a pizza restaurant and bar on the site and a snack bar by the pool, but this was closed while we were there.
Rochefort is a short drive away, it's a lovely old town. We also visited the old fort of Bruage, a fascinating place, with lovely cafés and craft shops. We also made some day trips to the Ille d'oleron, with its lovely beaches.
The one downside, we felt, was the toilet facilities on site. There are some good facilities at the front. And back of the site, but the ones in the middle need upgrading.
There was plenty of activities organised for children and adults.

Camping ideal pour retraiter silence total des 22 h
Manque d'animation pour les ados, superbe animatrice Anayck très bien avec les enfants. Piscine très froide et maitre nageur qui n'autorise pas la crème solaire et le port des chapeaux pour les enfants, douche froide. Le responsable (Julien) pas aimable du tout.
Cela fait deux années que j'y retourne après y avoir passé toute mon enfance dont moi j'ai que des souvenirs mais là franchement, changez de responsable avant de perdre toute votre clientèle car un camping maison de retraite, voilà ce que je pense de mon séjour au camping. Il y avait plein d'animation avant. Cela coute peut-être trop cher.
Donc conclusion: responsable à changer ainsi que le maitre-nageur.

Camping excellent , à conseiller. Wifi très bonne réception (emplacement proche de la réception).Enfant bien heureux.
Port de Barques est un village calme (beaucoup moins de voitures que sur Oleron) et le passage à gué vers l'Ile Madame sympa.

Wir waren mit 3 Familien mit Kinder zw. 9 und 16 Jahren für 2 Wochen auf dem Platz. Der Pool ist OK und der Weg zum Strand (Bassin) ist zu Fuß schnell zu erreichen.
