In the area of the gorgeous Côte d’Azur and the famous beach resort of Cannes you will find the well-run camping site Les Philippons. Sophisticated coastal resorts as Saint-Tropez, Antibes and Nice are easy to reach from here. After a day at the beach it is great to spend some time on the camping site, for instance at the nicely designed swimming pool or in the attractive restaurant next to it.
The wooded terrain with numerous large oaks and century-old olive trees has a natural layout and is located on various elevations. From the higher pitches you have a splendid view of the Esterel Mountains, whereas on the lower pitches it feels like you are camping in beach-like surroundings. The pitches are demarcated in a natural manner and generally sufficiently spacious. The rental accommodation is made up of bungalow tents, holiday bungalows and a villa.
Swimming pool, lake and sea
Although the swimming pool is not very large, it is beautifully shaped and has decorative tiles, plants, loungers and sun umbrellas around it. There is a separate toddler pool and a female supervisor keeps a friendly eye on things. Looking for a larger pool? The idyllic Lac de St.-Cassien is located at a distance of 10 km. Rather head for the Mediterranean Sea? Cannes is 18 km away from the camping site. Théoule-sur-Mer is even closer (thirteen km).
Summer swimming festivals
On the camping site grounds children can enjoy themselves in the swimming pool, at the table tennis table, the table soccer game and the pétanque court. There is a playground for the little ones. Pool parties are held on Wednesday evenings, complete with music and mood lighting and are an unforgettable experience for young and old.

Liked - Ruime plekken met schaduw en zon. Door bomen ook privacy. Tappunten en elektr. dichtbij. .
Disliked - Beneden gedeelte is mooi qua plek maar: Veel te weinig toiletten en zelden schoon. Dichtbij alleen koud water douche / (af)was. Te ver voor warm water. WiFi beperkt en alleen tegen betaling.
Quiet camping in the middle of the woods with nice surroundings. The camping is divided in two parts by a public road. We stay near the swimmingpool were was few people, In this side of the camping the toilets could be better. We stay for one night.
A very pretty campsite set in an exclusively pretty area with little to do. Frejus & tacky seaside resorts nearby seem the only attactions. Was show to a choice of 4 pitches on golf-cart by very friendly old gentleman, although the younger male owner was absolutely MISERABLE. He was rude to my wife for washing clothes in toilet block supposedly closed. When I challenged, no real apology other than saying that he thought my wife was campsite intruder... Does she look like an intruder? The owner was miserable from the start and made us feel unwelcome. He is running a HOLIDAY destination & the least he can do is smile & greet people... People like to feel welcome when on holiday. Finally left (early) when he suddenly herded everyone next to each other (even though less than 7 people on site). He should try to ensure this doesn't happen when campers are few as people like their privacy.
A lovely appearing site & nothing to complain of other than feeling uncomfortable due to owner.

Liked - mooie rustige camping met veel groen en schaduw
Disliked - cars shouldn't be allowed after 11 o"çlock

If you want a quiet shaded location with wonderful views, far enough away from the business of the coast, you could not do better. Very helpful staff, very clean facilites,excellent swimming. After the tortuous climb from the motorway, a haven of peace.
Liked - Nice place, friendly people
My wife and I are both in our mid 70s and caravan in 2013 we spent 8 weeks with our caravan staying mostly on sites in the CC books, in all cases we found the site information very good,with good directions but the best of the stes was in fact the Les Phillippons the our best stay. which was in mid September, the staf were very helpfull and made us very welcome The near by village was very good with smallshops etc .after Mass on Sundays we visit the very near -by Cafe where we met other campers I can recommend this site and its localion to any one, its got the sea and the mountains and gorges etc.We do wish that the UK site could come upto the standards and cost of those in the rest of the EU we have been travelling in the EU for the past 30 years or so
Liked - A lovely clean and quiet site in June. Nice pool. The site seemed to appeal to couples in both the mobile homes and touring pitches, so quiet, which suited us well. Not that far from Mandelieu, a busy seaside town.
Liked - I like the camping site, we love the location, the people, the intimacy of the location, the kind people, the climate.....and more
