Excellent small family run site with first class facilities. Nothing to much trouble for the owners, who treat all camper as if they are their guests. People may complain about narrow access roads but, then again, if you can\'t manage your rig perhaps you shouldn\'t be driving it.

Site is on beautiful coast, slept on beach, only sea could be heard, perfect. Cycle paths to your hearts content, on beach, through forest, on prom. Family run, owners could not be more helpful and welcoming. Would definitely come here again. Weather was glorious.

Stayed on this wonderful family run site for a week en route back to the UK .
I had stayed at La Foret 20 years ago when my children were very young and I wanted to spend some time there again, it turned out to be an excellent choice. Fabulous, helpful staff, great moules/ frites fresh bread every morning and a pizza van once a week outside the site :-)
The swimming pool was immaculately kept being a perfect temperature at all times,
It was a short walk to an unspoilt beach through the pine forest, plenty of cycle rides and within close proximity to Notre Dame de Monts.

Very small and overcrowded campsite with very little space to even drive to your pitch. The pitches are sandy and compact with little privacy. The toilet facilities are small but clean, however, there were no hand dryers. It is a family run campsite and the couple at reception were so helpful and friendly (even giving us a free laundry token when we forgot to put our washing powder in!) The location was perfect, just outside the campsite there was a short forest path leading to a quiet beach. It is only a short walk to the two towns on either side of the campsite and both also have lovely beaches.

The owners of this site are very friendly,helpful and speak fluent english. While it is a small site it is well maintained with the pool very special as well as the large portions of food on offer. Beaches, walks, bike rides, touring areas by car or campervan etc fantastic. We love the area and enjoy spending time there.

A beautifully maintained campsite at which we stayed 14 nights in May 2012. My son & his wife also stayed 7 nights in June 2012. We all agreed we would go back. The owner and staff could not do enough for their visitors. We met others who visit regularly.

Travelling party: Young couple

Great campsite, well worth staying at for a few days. The site's next to the forest and about 10 minutes walk from the beach. There're loads of cycle tracks and walking options. The site is in walking distance from Notre Dame de monts a beautiful little town with bars, restaurants, supermarket and other facilities.

Reaction from the campsite December 13, 2013

Dear Family Sanderson, thank you for your comment and good notation.
We will be happy to welcome a next time.
All the best for your family,
Greg and Wiebke
