Campsite Le Puits de l'Auture ****

General information
Guide price €39.10

Camping Le Puits de l'Auture is located in the town of Saint-Palais-sur-Mer (130 km north of Bordeaux). You are here directly on the seafront with a view of the town's lighthouse. The four stars of the camping site probably need some clarification. They are, for instance, not representative of the amenities on the camping site (there is no swimming pool, no restaurant and no entertainment). Rather, it is the intimate atmosphere, the tranquillity, location on the seafront, attractive flowerbeds and excellent sanitary facilities that make the camping site a top destination.

Beautiful pitches and rental accommodation

The 186 spacious touring pitches of Le Puits de l'Auture are located in near park-like surroundings. You camp here on a well maintained, flat grass surface which is demarcated with hedges, bushes and trees. There are numerous open pitches, but also pitches with ample shade.

The well maintained rental accommodation units (21) consist of trekker huts, bungalows and mobile homes. These are modern, in cheerful colours and have a terrace or veranda in front.

Off to the sea

You can easily reach the beach on foot (Grande Côte). It is only a 200 m walk. In front of the camping site are a few rocks, but further along is a sandy beach. Le Puits de l'Auture does not have a swimming pool, organised entertainment or catering facilities.

Pizzas and barbecue

However, there is a pizza takeaway service, mini camp shop and a field with a few brick barbecues which you can use freely. There are also some handy picnic tables. Restaurants and other eateries are aplenty on the seafront promenade. Shops and a market can be found in Vaux-sur-Mer.

Lovely tidy site with excellent facilities.
Very close to a a fine selection of restaurants and beautiful Beaches.
The town of Palais is accessed by a picturesque coastal footpath, and well worth the effort.

We stayed 6 nights, camping is in waöking distance to great beach and fishing spot. Shady pitches with big trees and open feeling since there are no barriers between pitches. Very clean sanitary, good baby bathroom but no small toilet or low washing sink for children. No free wifi, quiet and tidy. fresh bread morning and evening, great spot for holydays.

good campsite in a fantastic location for walking the Grand Cote or back into Saint Palais sur Mer. avoid pitching under the pines as they drop resin. toilets are best I've ever come across on a campsite in France. will return when next in Charente Maritime. reception staff are most helpful.

Extremely good toilet facilities, pitch quite good size, but beware in June. Some pitches have overhanging mulberry bushes/trees, the fruit tastes good, but drops continuously and you cannot help treading etc. will have to clean carpets when we get home. Internet disappointing, only 30 minutes free per day, and even if you disconnected the clock appears to keep ticking, so really it is only one session per day. Recommend the ScoobyDoo restaurant 100 yards to the left as you exit the site, with unlimited wifi.

Our second visit to this site around this time of year and a different experience. Site was packed when we arrived - recommend pre-booking. We arrived with two little dogs and there were a few people moaning about dogs on the site. I was actually told off by a French woman when walking my dogs on the site. I always pick up my dogs' poo and I was annoyed with her reaction. Four mornings the electricity went off on the site and Wifi not working for 2/3 days when we arrived.

A very warm welcome from from all the Reception staff who were very professional. and recommended pitches to suit your outfit. Connection to electric point was locked but dealt with quickly as was all queries.
An excellent site in a good area for cycling or just relaxing some very good restaurants nearby.
