The campsite is especially popular with those families with smaller children who want lots of things to do on-site and nearby whilst having a peaceful area where they can relax.

Although fairly small, it offers a great range of facilities and activities on-site. One major benefit however is the availability of all of its sister campsites facilities and activities.

Right opposite the campsite you’ll find La Sirene campsite which is a larger and more livelier campsite. One of the great benefits of staying here is that you also get to use the facilities and activities at La Sirene. This means that you get the best of both worlds with double the campsite.

If you’re looking for a campsite in the south of France near to the beach then you won’t be disappointed. Located just over 1km away from the campsite you’ll find a glorious sandy beach which is perfect for families of all ages. The beach is easily reached by foot or bicycle however for those who don’t fancy walking you’ll find a mini train that stops outside the campsite and will take you straight to the beach.

Back on-site you’ll find a lovely pool complex that boasts a couple of lovely heated swimming pools, a jacuzzi, slide and sun terrace. Don’t forget though that you’ll also be able to use the massive pool at La Sirene next door.
