Super hot, great deal for school holidays. Do not know about this specific park, but the price is great. We are flying for our May holiday and the cheapest we found near an airport was £900 for 2a + 2c. Different park, booked via a different provider, Eurocamp was double the price.
Can't believe I am voting hot for a Eurocamp holiday, since them alongside Greenbank holidays messed our (and others) holiday in August via the Sun.

We stayed here last May bank holiday and it was very, very good value for money. We were very lucky with the weather which made things nicer! There isn't loads and loads to do there, but it does have a decent size pool, and it is a 10 minute walk into the local town that had plenty of places to eat. There is a massive supermarket 2 minutes away which also was handy, as we ate in and around the camp site most of the time which really kept costs down
We stayed at Camping Bel last July, don't forget the flyspray !! Better still get one of those electric bats to fry the little pests. I agree with MrMatt that there's not a lot to do especially in the evenings.
425 miles from Calais to La Tranche-sur-Mer. Ouch. Great deal otherwise though.
Fantastic price.

The down side is that it's a 7 hour drive from Calais and the weather that time of the year can be iffy.

Worth looking at Newhaven dieppe crossing. We tend to do a night time cross with a cabin
Takes the drive down to about 5 hours
We’ve been looking to do something in May like this again.

This is a good deal but a long way to drive for a week.

There’s loads of campsites that are miles closer than this so if people are looking to go to France, have a good search. Brittany, Normandy etc are all a lot closer.

We went Portsmouth to Caen outwards and l'havre back, it cuts a couple of hours off the drive. Overnight ferry, and stopped off at mont st michel on the way out, three other stops for coffee etc. and even with a steady drive still got to campsite by 5pm. Get a gas stove and kettle, brew up at the services just buy a couple of rolls and some pate or cheese.

Yes, I only point this out because we went Calais to Nantes (and then back to Amsterdam) and it was LONG. With a family now I'd be inclined to trade a longer ferry crossing for less time in the car.

Wow !! I hope you had 2 drivers.

There were two of us driving and we did a music festival in Nantes, so it wasn't driving all the way through. After Amsterdam we went to Stuttgart and Paris, lots of driving but we had a great time.
Nice deal, heat
Wow, just fly!
Stayed here a couple of times, it is a nice small site.
Pool is pretty cold though.
Lots of really good cycle paths around the area so great for going for rides with the kids.
Loads of good beaches.
We stayed last May mobile home hadn't been cleaned properly and there were loads of spiders nests with tiny spiders everywhere!
Don't forget you can also get the ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff, only around 3 1/2 hours or so drive then (ferry is expensive though - just checked and the ferry is over £500!)

Had a nose as also there is St Malo which has main routes down to this and is a good crossing albeit this route is expensive

but if keeping cheap then the Caen route both ways with bike rack on adds £150 to OP's quoted price booked through the site - both of those are quicker than from Roscoff.

May can be a bit hit and miss in Vendee weather wise but definitely would recommend a day out to Puy du Fou that is just over an hour away from here.

The weather is more likely to be nicer in the Vendee. Plus you can always stop overnight half way, that's what we did back in the early 80s on Eurocamp holidays (great times as kids in the back of the car, bloody brother). Then you get to stay in a nice hotel in a hopefully charming French town there and back.

You’re not wrong.

I just think it’s a long way to go, especially with kids for one week. We did Loire Valley for a week and that was enough - 5-6 hours.

So much to see though and just across the pond.

You could take a earlier ferry and stay one night either Paris or bourdex...both nice places also you can find nice cheap rooms for around £50 a night...we stayed in hotel f1 it's really nice for a budget hotel

I think you will find both are used and have seen both whilst there on many occasions - example on the tourism page:

Yes Puy du Fou is an amazing attraction. Like nothing else I've ever seen. Thoroughly recommended.
Good deal but not much good to anyone from the North. 7hour drive to the ferry followed by 7 hour drive to the site. The options for northerners for eurocamp are quite limited unless you want to drive for a very long time. Barcelona and girona airports have eurocamp nearby. Best option in France may be beziers Airport if you don't want to drive, plenty of eurocamp nearby and it's south of France and relatively cheap to fly to.

It would be nice if there was a Hull to Calais or Caen ferry, or even Liverpool to Roscoff. I'm sure in the summer having at least one option would be popular with people up north - if you are rich that is. It would probably cost about £600+ return with car and the ferry journey from Liverpool taking about 18 hours. Would cut out a hell of a lot of hassle though.

theres also a £30 fuel voucher offer if booking direct, i found the prices higher than via Eurocamp but with the fuel voucher offer and if can be combined with Clubcard vouchers too maybe cheaper poferries.com/en/…ers
When we drive that way we stay on southern edge of Paris, just inside the ring road (Kremlin Bicetre Hotel Ibis) to break up the journey.

Parking via the Zenpark app was 6€ for 24 hrs. If you choose a different car park and need to go inside the ring road, make sure you research the Crit'Air badge you'll need. 🏻

the fuel offer and other P&O advertised offers are not valid for half term week sadly...
Did the dover-calais crossing with ferries at 7:25am 23rd and approx 10pm 30th .... £302 for 2a + 4c.

Very happy and just booked, what's the catch?

You can also use Tesco Clubcard points with Al Fresco Holidays. They're the sister company to Eurocamp, and all the major campsites are available. We to the Vendée last year, taking the Ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe, and then driving the 6 hours to the Vendée. Yes, was a long way - but we made it part of the holiday!
anybody tried South France camps end of May week, how is the weather like? Some parks have heated pools any idea what the temp are they?
We went to La Rive in May half term a few years ago. Was glorious!!
