Special pitches for cyclists and walkers

The restaurant, swimming pool and playground form the pulsating heart of the camping site. This is surrounded by the pitches and the rental accommodation. The pitches are partly located in the shade, but in the centre some of the pitches have to make do without shade. There are special pitches for cyclists and walkers.

Comfort, Grand Comfort and Comfort Premium

The camping site offers pitches in all kinds of shapes and sizes. Guests bringing their own tent can choose between three levels, the standard pitch being at Comfort level, while you have water supply and drainage facilities at Grand Comfort level and Comfort Premium comes with own sanitary facilities. There is a wide choice of rental accommodation: mobile homes, caravans, huts on stilts and so-called Coco Sweet tents.

Restaurant and shop

The camping site has a restaurant where you can have a leisurely meal or enjoy a drink or an ice cream on the terrace. The restaurant also offers breakfast, half board (only in low season) and take-away dishes (including pizzas). The shop stocks local products and daily fresh bread.

Travelling party: Seniors

A very attractive site situated on the edge of a forest. beware the pitches under the edge of the forest, but, in low season plenty of choice. Local village within walking distance, some shops further on up the hill with a medium sized supermarket a short drive away. Friendly staff happy to help.

Very pleasant site with welcoming staff. A good shop on site sells most essential provisions, and takes orders for bread for the next morning. Our pitch was a very good size, although water and waste facilities were a distance away. Would definitely stay again.
