A rustic scene

Liked - La Garangeoire consistently ensure their guests have a lovely holiday. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff always have a smile. We have been coming to La Garangeoire since 2011 and over the years have seen reinvestment and improvements every year. Brilliant campsite and always sad to leave!
Disliked - The impact of Covid seems to have affected staffing levels in the restaurant. They were under pressure the night we dined there as only 2 servers and a full restaurant! In general the food wasn’t as good as previous years. Hopefully this is just as a result of staff issues in these difficult times and we will see the restaurant return to the usual excellent experience on our next visit!

Liked - Very pretty and clean campsite, lovely pool area and lots to do for children. All staff very friendly and helpful. The wine and cheese tasting was excellent and would highly recommend.
Disliked - Unfortunately we are in the restaurant on our first night and had to wait an hour for our main course and our meals were not as ordered, small portions and overcooked. Such a shame as we would normally eat at the camp restaurant many times on holiday and this put us off and we did not return. We have visited other castle campsites and the restaurants and food are excellent. Luckily the takeout food service was good and we used this on a couple of occasions.

Liked - The restaurant was great. The takeaway was excellent. We enjoy the garden bar and pool bar. The brass band was enjoyable.
Disliked - The pool needs to be policed for behaviour.
Parking for arrivals on check in is very poor when in a motorhome or towing a caravan. Access to the bins was not possible in our motorhome and there would be benefit from a couple of collection points for rubbish.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Friendly staff, a warm welcome, spacious pitch and good, clean toilet blocks and washing facilities. The area is beautiful and I got out on some wonderful bike rides. Nice choice of beaches within 40 mins drive and nearer.
Disliked - Pool area is too small for the number of guests - there is not enough space and not enough sun loungers for all. Despite the signs asking people to refrain from reserving or keeping sun loungers they are not using, it happens all the time. Families put their towels out taking many sun loungers and are gone from the pool area for hours at a time.
We were disappointed with the Friday night quiz which we have always enjoyed in the past years. It is now done on mobile phone, can't be done really as a team and the translation of the questions from French to English is not very good. Shame

Liked - Idyllic
Disliked - Pool area is now excessively overcrowded & real concerns to Health & safety , sitting by pool is no longer enjoyable & there were 3 occasions where no room at all & returned to pitch which in hot weather was disappointing..

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Relaxing, superb friendly well run campsite
Disliked - There wasn’t as much to do for teenagers this year. Missed dodge ball and a few other meets that my teens were hoping to get involved in. Sadly they have outgrown the mini golf tournaments, etc . The night swim is brilliant they certainly enjoyed that

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Renovations are very nice. Overall very happy with our stay.
Disliked - Queues at bar were too long and more experienced staff are needed. Bar area could have been kept a bit cleaner to help with flys and wasps. Evening entertainment was quite poor compared to other years and the online quiz didn’t really work.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - It’s the first time we’ve been this late in the year, it was very quiet which was nice but the evenings were long. We think the site would probably be a little busier in normal times.
Disliked - It would’ve been nice to have a bit of entertainment some time during the week
