Rob Rijfkogel, on this campsite in January 2016

Travelling party: Couple


We hebben in januari op deze camping overnacht. Bij aankomst van het kantoor gesloten. Na een telefoontje was de uitbaadster snel ter plaatse. Wist on vriendelijk te melden dat het warme water niet werkte. De camping werd voornamelijk bevolkt door vaste bewoners in Chalets. Achteraan de camping waren plaatsen voor tenten en campers. Het sanitair was ronduit smerig en de verlichting werkte ook niet. Het was de bedoeling wat langer te blijven om Istres te bezichtigen, maar deze camping zullen wij in het vervolg mijden. Men vroeg ook het volledige tarief ondanks dat het warme water niet functioneerde.

Very grumpy male staff member who insisted we move in an almost empty site. Female was friendlier. We picked this site because it is described under facilities as \"Located by a lake/recreation pond (max. 0.1 km)\" which is not accurate. Furthermore, it was like being in a prison camp with high security fencing and gates. Over-priced for what you get.

Camping en travaux, sanitaires pas très propres et éloignés, emplacement sans ombre, pas d\'accès aux étangs?

The reception was closed when we got there which was disconcerting. The camping area for caravans was an open field with unmarked sites and the toilet facilities were creepy. The showers did have lots of hot water but the lights were on too short a timer! Good washing machine and dryer.

Camping ligt ver van de bewoonde wereld. We waren van plan een hele week te blijven, maar de goederentrein die vele malen per nacht langs denderde heeft ons na de 1 nacht weggejaagd. Jammer van een mooie en verzorgde camping.
