Waterford, Ireland Family (the eldest child is at school)
- Having spent a long weekend in this beautiful parc in June 2014, we decided to make it a full family holiday this year and booked a Classic Plus with decking for 8 nights. We found ourselves in a very comfortable and clean 3 bedroom mobile home with 2 bathrooms ( 1 ensuite off the main bedroom) with everything we needed for a relaxed and pleasant family holiday. The slightly larger floor plan of the Classic Plus as compared to the 2 bedroom Classic we had gone for the previous year allowed for the baby's travel cot to just fit into the main bedroom which was perfect for us. We were delighted with the location of our accomodation which had a hedge-fringed garden in front of the decking flanked by 2 cherry trees, offering a sense of privacy, space and security for our 2 young children (with the bonus of fresh cherries for breakfast :)
Overall, Chateau Lez Eaux has excellent facilities for all in a quiet and pristine setting; a great covered water park with baby pools and slides, bouncy castles free of charge, a lovely bar, well stocked shop, games room and pool table and even a take-away serving tasty and affordable pizzas, salads, omelettes, lasagne, chips and kiddies meals. There is a tranquil fishing lake at the heart of the site, a children's playground, football and outdoor games areas.
This parc is ideally located to visit the best of what Normandy has to offer, being only minutes from the beautiful beaches of Saint-Pair-sur-Mer and Kairon Plage among others and the interesting and bustling town of Granville. Other sight-seeing highlights for us this year were the excellent zoo at Champrepus and the impressive cathedral town of Coutances, both at no more than 30 to 40 minutes drive from Lez Eaux. The iconic Mont St. Michel is only 40 miles away but a treat we will reserve for when our children area little older. If you are travelling via Cherbourg, don't miss the excellent Cite de la Mer, a fascinating interactive museum of all things maritime, including a Titanic exhibition, enormous cylindrical aquarium and a real submarine to be visited, the Redoutable.
All in all, we highly recommend Lez Eaux in all aspects and fully intend to return with our family in the years to come as there is so much yet to see and do in and around this lovely family-friendly camp.
