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.

BERHIER, on this campsite in September 2021


Travelling party: Seniors

4ème séjour dans ce camping toujours parfait. Je le recommande particulièrement pour les personnes à mobilité réduite, les saintaires handicapés sont vraiment adaptés

Mooi camping die, bijna, direct aan het strand ligt. Mooie ruime plaatsen die niet allemaal even gelijk zijn. Met een wat grotere caravan zijn de bochten soms wat krap, maar wel te nemen. Fietsen via de aangelegde fietspaden is prima te doen. Er zijn wat leuke routes. Voldoende gelegenheid om ergens te gaan eten.

We absolutely loved this campsite. We were staying near to closure for the season but the amenities and staff were 100%. The pitches are spacious and grounds well maintained. Situation perfect. So close to the stunning sea front. Will definitely return.

Zum dritten mal waren wir zu Gast auf dem Platz. Unsere Wünsche (z.B. Schatten) wurden sehr gut bei der Reservierung berücksichtigt. Die Straße haben wir selbst bei offenem Fenster nachts nie als störend empfunden (es ist nichts los nachts). Es gibt einen kleinen Shop und die Baguettes waren immer toll und frisch. Die Schranke ist lang genug per code zu öffnen (23 Uhr). Für Spätankommende gibt es den Stellplatz vor der Tür. Die Sanitäranlagen waren stets sauber. Unsere waren auch sehr neu. Restaurants gibt es viele in kurzer Fußlauf Distanz (wir empfehlen das L Horizon)

Wir waren vom 17 bis 28 August 2021 dort. Schöne Lage am Meer, nur 200m zum Strand. Gute Restaurants in der Nähe (Cote Sud 250m). Freundliche Rezeption. Sanitär 1a. Leider ist der Pool zu. Empfehlenswert, gerne wieder.

leuke camping vlak bij de zee. vriendelijke ontvangst. zeer proper sanitair. Met de ( elektrische ) fiets mooie fietstochten gemaakt en locale marktjes bezocht. zijn hier uiteindelijk 5 dagen geweest en hebben er zeker géén spijt van. Kinderen heb ik er niet gezien , ook géén speeltoestellen op de camping gezien . sportfaciliteiten ?.om eerlijkt te zijn , ook niet op de camping gezien . voor ons een heel goede camping .Zeker eens langs gaan.

Travelling party: Seniors

Ruine plaatsen. Veel schaduw. Vlakbij strand. Gezellig dorp op fietsafstand met iedere dag grote markt. Juni was rustig, met veel plek, september heel vol. WiFi op bepaalde plekken heel goed. Sanitair is simpel Regen geeft op sommige plekken een zwembad.

Very clean and well run site. Large plots in pleasant park like surroundings. Most roomy and well laid out shower rooms.

A very restful break and thoroughly recommended.

Attitude DEPLORABLE ET INADMISSIBLE venant du camping, ma compagne s\'est fait \"matter\" alors qu\'elle prenait sa douche, un jeune homme (que le camping connaît car il vend ses melons aux campeurs dans l\'enceinte du camping !) c\'est permis de regarder au dessus des parois de douche pour la matter.
Le camping est resté sans rien faire, ni même nous rassurer à se sujet. C\'est juste INADMISSIBLE !! A ce jour nous ne connaissons pas l\'identité du jeune homme, nous ne savons pas si il va Continuer de venir au camping.. MÉFIANCE

Holger Lüsebrink, on this campsite in July 2020


Travelling party: Single

Der Platz ist ein parkartiges Gelände. Mit vielen großen, schattenspendenden Bäumen. Alles sehr gepflegt, viel Rasen. Viel Grün und Zwischenräumen, die gepflegt, aber der Natur überlassen sind. Sehr angenehmes Publikum, keine Animation o.ä. Neue Sanitäranlagen die stets absolut sauber und hygienisch sind. Das Personal ist sehr freundliche und hilfsbereit. Direkter Zugang zum Atlantik. 400 Meter bis zur Grande Cote.
