Go somewhere else. It is a boring, low quality, overpriced and badly managed place. Full of false pretences. Nothing is as they commit. A scam. To be avoided. Very nasty and unpleasant staff. Go somewhere else.

I booked in January and still we had the worst property in the resort, it was an oven inside all afternoon and night, impossible to sleep. Property very far from the pool and the parking. Full of extras not included in the price. Resort lack of soul, boring as hell. Further from beach than stated in the advert, not walk... More

Stayed here for a little over a week. Whilst good if suns out, if it's wet then all activities are a long drive away. Not much apart from apartments and pool inside the complex & 1 bar, 1 pub, 1 pizzeria and 1 bakers outside complex. Okay for 4-6 nights but any longer and it's a bit boring. Also accommodation...

Turned up 90 minutes early and pleasantly surprised that our accommodation was available already. After the preliminaries and paying other costs (tip: they do NOT have English TV channels despite being told at reception there were 3, so if your French is not up to scratch, save yourself 35 euros), went to our "house". Mostly fine, although would have liked... More

Really enjoyed our family holiday last year and are looking forward to going back again. Lovely holiday houses, ideal no car areas, so great for the children. Pool is great and easy access to the beach, no need to use the car, which made it all perfect. We especially liked our little cottage with a very private patio and have... More

The property was not well cleaned when we arrived, probably animal hairs.However when we checked out we were watched over while we had to clean, or pay €70 for a 3rd party to clean. Otherwise the resort looks nice with quaint cottages. Watch the small print and extra charges on top of your rental.

We stayed for 2 weeks in August with our daughter, son in law and two grandchildren aged 10 months and nearly 3 years. What we didn't understand until we got there was that the houses all seem to be privately owned and rented out in some cases via Madame Vacances. This means that what you get can vary depending on...

We came here for 2 weeks with our teenage son and his friend, both of whom were 16 at the time. We hired bikes for them and they pretty much did their own thing for the whole time, either spending time on the local beaches or going up to St Jean de Monts. This is a great location for day... More
