You Said

"Accommodation and pools very clean. Lots of things for the children to do. Evening entertainment could perhaps have been a little earlier as 10pm was very late for the children. Reps fantastic extremely helpful throughout stay. Price of caravan very reasonable compared to other al fresco sites in France we looked at and considering the amount of facilities that were available on the site."

INTRODUCING LA GRANDE METAIRIE

A fabulous pool complex both indoor and out, an amphitheatre for shows on long summer nights plus animation for all ages on an unusually wide scale. Its pristine parkland setting and spacious, well-organised layout favour more peaceful and natural pursuits too; a visit to the farmyard, fishing or a leisurely stroll to admire the mysterious megalithic stones, a sort of Gallic Stonehenge. Boat trips to Belle Île, sunbathing and shopping in Carnac and time to roam the historic streets of Auray and Vannes; a fantastic array of exciting excursions await you in this ever popular corner of western France.

Camp site emplacements are too small. Ridiculous when you can see a person in the next mobile close up to the point you can see what they are cooking for dinner or hear their conversation clearly. It's a shame that over the years this gorgeous campsite has been ruined by the need to squash so many mobile homes in - silly mistake. Al Fresco where were our two sun loungers - of course there was no space to even put them out or even park your car in your pitch. However Lindsey & Mani were brilliant and Rossini Riviera mobile home spotlessly clean.

The pool could have been warmer and the entertainment and activities closes before the site does so couldn't really be used. Could have scored higher

The campsite was very full of caravans with few camping areas and these were hard mud without grass.
the entertainment was not really our thing and felt abit how id imagine butlins to be, nowhere to sit for a relaxing drink and nice view.
pools were good but no sunbeds available.

Mannie and Linzie were amazing hosts, the homes were sparkling and they were very approachable. The park could be quickly improved with more staff on at bars and the restaurant. The price of the food, ice creams and drinks is very expensive. The toilets and showers at the pool were not good. The pool was very good however, for smaller kids/toddlers there was no small slides. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and there was 2 lovely parks with good kids clubs availabilities. It is up to the park to improve on these facilities, Al Fresco were very good.

It is a very good place to stay. The entertainment staff were excellent and the pirate games night was a great idea. Kids could walk and play safety around the site. Could do with more loungers around the pool, maybe get rid of the horse field?
