We would have appreciated being advised in advance by email or phone that there was no cafetiere available in our accommodation as they had been withdrawn by Eurocamp - we could have then brought our own.
Firstly I should say that overall we had a good holiday and we would certainly return to this region of France. The reason for the lower score for the park is because of the swimming pool.
The water was so cloudy to the extent that when my daughter and husband dropped their googles in the water you could not see enough under water to find them! The campsite obviously did not have a grip on the chemical treatment of the pool. I suspect it was the pool which was a major contributing factor, if not in fact the cause of, the stomach bug which affected the park during our stay. Many, many campers at the campsite, including ourselves and the entire family next door to us as well, were affected. The campsite I suspect also considered the pool a factor, since it was completely drained, cleaned and refilled during our stay. It should be stated that the Eurocamp Courier were absolutely superb during this outbreak, and could not have been more helpful. Also one other thing which is worthy of note regarding the pools is that whilst one pool is heated, the one for the children with the shutes/slides is not, and the water was surprisingly cold even in August. The lodges were simple but comfortable, and overall as I said earlier we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The region is certainly worth a return trip since there is an awful lot to see. Note if take your child horse riding at the campsite, as we did, it is up to the parent to lead the horse, around a lap near the campsite entrance. A 30 min ride comprises of 4 laps and is not through the surrounding countryside.
The Parc is fantastic. Nice size, lovely pools and a shop/bar/restaurant on site, providing everything you'd need, if you didn't want to leave the site. However, Sommieres is a must, very historical, great markets on a Wednesday & Saturday, lovely little town.
