Endless beaches, plus a waterpark close by

There’s something about miles of sand on your doorstep and a family-run atmosphere that ticks a whole lot of boxes for families and adults alike.

Les Ecureuils is home to a great pool complex, including indoor, outdoor and a kids’ pool, waterslides, lazy river, fountain and Jacuzzi. There is a small spa and wellness centre on parc, plus loads of family activities arranged by the owners. There’s a restaurant and bar – scene of regular family discos in high season. There are several shops nearby, including an excellent supermarket, open from June onwards. In the evening, the recently extended bar really comes into its own with a great selection of French wine, beers and fruity cocktails. Go on, you’re on holiday!

Loved the parc but the accommodation was less than basic and not to the standard shown in the pictures and the supposedly fully equipped kitchen wasn’t and some things we’re dirty

This was a lovely park and it still is but it is marketed very heavily by eurocamp and so was packed (may half term). Ok when it's sunny but as it rained people were in their cars all the time....defeated the objective of children being able to run free as you spent the time calling them back. On the positives the beach is beautiful and just across the road, lovely cycling routes, laid back bar and lovely pool. Downsides are the eurocamp kids club has been radically changed and we couldn't get in a lot as it only took 16 children, which was disappointing. The times of the clubs and activities had changed aswell - ran reduced time when there were less people at the park and lots of odd one hour activities through the day meaning you had to clock watch. So that (along with the fact we couldn't get in!!) meant we ended up not using it which was a huge downside as thats why we choose eurocamp and that park! The park is perfect if you had one little one under 5 as it's nice and laid back, with just enough for them to do, and you can accompany them on any activities that eurocamp kids club may run. I don't know if we would go back again due to problems with the kids clubs would probably just camp independently at French sites as you pay less but for same experience. The year before though we had an amazing holiday at the same site and I would definately have recommended it then. But we had lots of great weather and double the kids couriers at eurocamp kids club so that was never a problem and very laid back.

Great park with nice facilities. Clean accommodation. Rarely saw any courier around compared to previous years. Kids club was good but disappointed that it had changed to a limit of 16 children-during half term this meant many were sent away and it put us off trying to go.
