This park was too cramped. The roads were very narrow and the placements too small. I have not commented on the facilities as being a retired couple we did not make use of them.

I thought that the park looked a bit tired. The shop was tiny with limited variety of products. Overall the facilities were much poorer than other parks we have stayed in previously and we had to pay to use the heated pool. It was also not at all clear that the park was split in 2 by a busy road.

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We're really sorry to learn you were not completely satisfied with the campsite and its facilities.
It is in our smaller range of campsites and features in our 'Unwind and Explore' category so we feel it is a campsite for unwinding and exploring the local area due to its location.
We really hope that you may consider us again for future holidays - our 'Ultimate Fun' range of campsites offer a wider range of facilities, swimming pools and entertainment

Thank you for taking the time to bring your concerns to our attention.

Kind Regards
Vanessa

The park is very similar to all those we have visited over the last 15 years. We always use the pool facilities but rarely any other organised activities. Our 3 boys loved the tree top zip wires and we all enjoyed the payable pool which could be used for 2 hours in the morning for €2 or 4 hours in the afternoon for €4. We knew about the charge before travelling so were well aware that we had a choice of paying or using the free pool.

What the brochure doesn't make clear is the fact this is a complex split by quite a busy road and the main motorway passes close by so at night you do hear the traffic noise very clearly. The larger free pool is not great and is located at the far end of the complex. The pools near the road and entrances is a pay pool @ 1 euro an hr although discounts for longer periods. This is not a good pool complex either with lots of gimmicky channels and hydro bubbles but after 5 mins its back to the where's the good pool for fun , games and swimming as this one is a definite no no. Having used various sites in France and Italy I would rank this as one of the worst we have stayed in for amenities included in the Base price, but this one is the most we have ever paid for the worse facilities.

Great facilities on site for children such as mini golf, park, football pitch, animal corner and so on.
Supermarket on site was small and pricey.
