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.

Jürgen, on this campsite in September 2019


Travelling party: Couple

Schöne große Stellplätze (sowohl schattige, als auch sonnige), die überwiegend durch Sträucher und Büsche begrenzt sind. Der Platz ist von der Steinküste (zum Sandstrand ca. 600m) durch eine Straße getrennt, die aber auf dem Platz (zumindest im Bereich des von uns genutzten Stellplatzes) nicht zu hören ist. Mit CampingCard sehr günstig. Sanitärgebäude unterschiedlich neu, alle sehr gut gepflegt. Waschbecken und Duschen im September beheizt. Kleiner Lebensmittelladen, in dem es auch (für morgens sicherheitshalber vorbestellen) Brot und Croissants gibt. Sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal, das auch Infos zur Region bereithält. Über das gut ausgebaute Radwegnetz erreicht man außer Saint-Palais-sur-Mer auch leicht Royan (sehr schöne Markthalle) oder durch die Wälder auch La Palmyre und die Côte Sauvage und den Rest der Halbinsel.

Bon camping, à 200m de la mer, sanitaires correctes et entrenus, eau bien chaude tant aux douches, que pour la vaisselle. Camping calme, à recommander.

Very pleasant in all respects. Sanitary facilities are above any critical comment: just fabulous, spacious and clean, not-to say spotless.
A small administrative problem was solved by the staff in a pleasant way, showing their involvement an concern for their clients.

Top class for active seniors.

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.

Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

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.

Excellent camping, tranquille et parfaitement entretenu. Sanitaires spacieux, toujours propres. Pas d\'animations pour les enfants, pas de piscine, mais une situation magnifique face à la mer, à 2 pas de la plage de la grande côte et de ses commerces. Je recommande sincèrement ce camping: il a été mon premier camping, j\'y reviens tous les ans à différentes époques de l\'année, et je m\'y sent toujours aussi bien. Dès la fin de mes vacances, je programme mon prochain séjour pour l\'année suivante.

Mooie en rustige camping. We hebben nooit een opmerking kunnen maken op het onderhoud van het sanitair. Altijd keurig en netjes

Prachtig gelegen camping, direct aan de Oceaan. Veel fietspaden langs de kust, naar de vuurtoren en de stadjes Saint Palais sur Mer en Royan. Leuke markt in st Palais en een prachtige, uitgebreide overdekte markt in Royan. Buitengewoon veel sanitaire voorzieningen en zeer schoon! Vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel. De camping is dag en nacht rustig met het aangename geluid van de oceaan. Een prachtig wandelpad bij de camping leidt langs de rotsen en de Puits naar St Palais. Wij hebben 3 weken genoten en gaan zeker terug. Overigens mooie ruime staanplaatsen, zowel met zon als met schaduw. Wij mochten zelf kiezen. Het mooie strand , La Grande Cote, ligt op loopafstand van de camping
