Travelling party: Family with children, various ages

First, it is VERY expensive.

Second, we have a large camper and we told them so but we received a small place that was very difficult to access. Strange because that were truly tons of spaces available.

Also, there is no wifi and when you get it it\'s very, very slow. This is totally unacceptable for a campground that claims to be at the high level. Especially since it just requires the right investment. That\'s very annoying because we couldn\'t plan the rest of our trip.

We were also surprised by the fact that the swimming pool glides closed at 6PM and the swimming pool at 7PM. Thus barely enough time to enjoy it when you come back from a day hike. But what we really couldn\'t accept is the manager response: \"if we close it later then I don\'t see my husband\'. Well, sorry lady but that\'s not our concern: we have vacations once a year and we expect the service to be at par with what we pay. Plus, this is the job your chose, so don\'t complain.

An example of animations for kids: drawings (inside)! heu:(. Is this really what they could find in such a beautiful environment?? this is sooo cheap:((.

There is also a little lake where small boats are available for kids. The problem is that there is no surveillance and it is thus very dangerous for kids. You are supposed to go get safety packs at the reception but of course nobody does it.

There is also very limited lights in the restrooms at night.

Also, no chaire/transat at the swimmingpool! you must lie down on your towel on the wet floor:(

Finally, there is absolutely no hikes/trails starting from the campground itself. This is quite sad as you need to take your car to go to a starting point of trails.

On the good side: the animations for kids in the evening and 2 nice restaurants at affordable prices. It\'s like a \"small village\" inside the campground. It\'s also well located close to Castellane but that\'s not the only such campground.

Travelling party: Couple

Worst and most expensive campsite we have stayed at In our first six days in France. Lovely surroundings but that\'s really the only positive thing I can say. Toilets tired and worn and not particularly clean. Water luke warm in showers and washing up sinks. Pitches all in the shade by 6pm. No WiFi available after a thunderstorm the night before. Only certain facilities open in mid June despite charging a premium. Swimming pool not impressive, we didn\'t even bother with it. Overall not impressed - we have stayed on a lot of Castels sites but this one really is one of the worse. Only stayed one night and moved on.
