Mooie camping. Zwembad iets te klein in verhouding met aantal gasten op de camping. Eerste indruk van de plek was niet goed. Stonden twee olijfbomen, zodat we onze auto niet op de plek kwijt konden. Auto op parkeerplaats gezet. Vervolgens elke dag onder de bomen gezeten. Geweldig dus! Sanitair prima. Wel eens vies, maar dat is de schuld van de gebruiker. Sanitair werd twee keer per dag schoongemaakt.

Prachtige camping - parkachtig. Ondanks dat de camping begin juli behoorlijk vol liep: na 23.00 was alles rustig. schone wc + douche - prachtig zwembad en ook een omgeving waar je alle kanten op kon. Supermarkten (Lydl en intermarché) op korte afstand. Wi-Fi van 11-12 uur en van 15-16 uur bij het restaurant. Anders moest er voor betaald worden. In het voorseizoen korting met ACSI en als je voor een langere periode staat ook nog de campingkorting voor lang verblijf erbij!!

Friendly welcome. Large site with plenty of pitches to choose from. Access roads a little tight for long caravans (our two were 7.2 and 8 metres) when negotiating corners. An enjoyable stay.

Heel mooie rustige camping. Beetje zoeken naar zonnige plaats voor onze camper. Prachtige zwembaden - zeer verzorgd, perfect onderhouden en up-to-date sanitair. Kunnen ons voorstellen dat het hier in de zomer vrij druk is. We hopen hier nog te kunnen terugkomen.

Zwembad was te klein t.o.v. het aantal mensen die op de camping waren! Barpersoneel was prima, bewaking slecht! Elke nacht niet wakker van de jeugd maar van de bewaking die al pratend en in golfkarretjes over de camping reed! Veel handdoek leggers, laatste week werd daar wel wat aan gedaan! Tijdens de poolparty heeft de camping echt geluk gehad dat er geen ongelukken zijn gebeurd, het was zo ontzettend druk dat er helemaal geen overzicht meer was! De animatie daar in tegen was super!

Wir waren eine Nacht auf diesem CP. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Sehr freundliches Personal, alles sauber und gepflegt. Die WC Anlage schien uns nicht veraltet, es hat aber verschiedene Gebäude und wir haben nur eines genutzt. Wir würden diesen Platz wieder besuchen.

trop d\'arbres on accroche son véhicule trop d\'ombre: le gazon n\'arrive plus à pousser dès qu\'il pleut c\'est la boue sur l\'emplacement, en plus les haies de séparations trop hautes n\'arrange rien
on s\'embourbe car il faut manœuvrer pou se placer
les piscines ne font pas tout!!!

Wir waren im Juni ein paar Tage auf dem Campingplatz. Es war alles tiptop, ausser den Sanitäranlagen, Diese sind veraltet und hätten eine Renovation dringend nötig!

Te klein zwembad t.o.v. het aantal kampeerplaatsen. Wij waren hier in het naseizoen maar in het hoogseizoen kun je daar echt over de koppen lopen. In het meer mag niet worden gezwommen. Mooie ruime plaatsen op de camping. Op de camping werken veel jonge Oost-Europese seizoenarbeiders die achter op de camping gehuisvest zijn en daar nogal de nodige herrie maken en vooral als idioten over de camping scheuren. Met meldingen hierover door de campinggasten wordt door het management totaal niets gedaan.

Reaction from the campsite January 13, 2015

Heel hartelijk dank voor uw beoordeling over onze camping.
Wij betreuren het zeer dat u een nare ervaring op heeft gedaan met betrekking tot ons personeel.
U hebt het gevoel dat het management niets doet met meldingen en dat is zeer spijtig. Natuurlijk is ons doel onze gasten volledig tevreden te maken en het is absoluut niet acceptabel dat u last heeft van het personeel. Wij zullen er voor zorgen dat dit niet weer voor kan vallen.
