A small, immaculately kept site with a lovely, friendly atmosphere
La Cigale is close to the magnificent Atlantic beaches and within walking distance of Arès town centre. The friendly owners’ attention to detail is apparent throughout the site, not least in the abundant flowers and shrubs that are a feature of the site. There are excellent cycle and walking paths in the surrounding area and nature lovers will enjoy the bird sanctuary at La Teste as well as exploring Arcachon bay, famous for its oysters and oyster farming. While here, a climb to the top of the nearby Dune du Pilat, the highest sand dune in Europe, is a must.

Wi-Fi not on pitches (free).
We were camping in a tent. Our pitch was big and not too close to neighbours. There was water and electric on our pitch. The snack bar was good. The restaurant just at the gate of the campsite was excellent. Toilets and showers were very clean. Good campsite location as very close to cycle routes and town was close enough to walk to.

Excellent small site which seemed to have a lot of annual returners. Pitches are a good size. We had our 5 man tent and gazebo and there was still room for the car alongside them. Poolside needs some updating and general upkeep as there were a number of loose bricks whlist walking around the poolside. Good bar and snacks area. Food is well priced but the drinks are a little expensive. The Point at the Cap Ferret is well worth a visit as well as the Dune's near Arachon. Andernos the next village on from Ares has a cosmopolitan fel and a much better choice of restaurants. Will be booking this site again in the future for sure!
