Flat and sloping terrain, with main routes and pathways of tarmac. Swimming pool access through footbath.
has the following facilities on or around the site.
A very warm welcome from the staff, who speak perfect English and nothing seems too much trouble.
The site is on a steep slope so, although the pitches are terraced, it's quite a walk up to reception.
The weather is quite volatile due to the location and we went from 40 degrees with unbroken sunshine to torrential rain and thunderstorms to giant hailstones within the space of three days.
Tent pitches are mainly at the bottom of the site and are level and spacious. Because this area is separated from the rest of the site by the large toilet block it has the feeling of a much smaller site. Please note that you need a Euro adapter for the EHU.
The excellent children's playground and bouncy castle is in this area so expect to hear children playing during the day.
There are four swimmimg pools on the site (speedos compulsory), including one indoor and one with waterslides. These never seemed to be overcrowded. There is also a good gym, a climbing wall, multi-sports pitch and table tennis so it's possible to spend the day on the site.
Entertainment is provided for children most days, ranging from crafts to dance evenings.
The only thing that might put people off is the unisex toilet block, although you do get used to this after a day or two. The block contains more than enough toilets and showers, plus the washing up sinks and laundry facilities. All areas were kept very clean.
There's no bar or restaurant onsite but there is a takeaway and you can order bread and pastries for the following morning from the shop. The shop itself is otherwise pretty poor being limited to little more than drinks and ice cream. This isn't a problem as there's a very good supermarket less than a mile up the road.
The town of Luz Saint Sauveur is less than a ten minute walk up the road and has dozens of very good restaurants, bars and shops and a bowling alley.
Highly recommended site!
