Les Alicourts Resort (Parc des Alicourts), Pierrefitte, Loire, France
My family and I had a brilliant time at Alicourts. Not our first camping holiday but it was the first time we travelled by car taking the eurotunnel which was superquick. We stayed in a 3 bed Thomson Al Fresco mobile home which was very clean and spacious with a large decking area outside where we enjoyed plenty of evening meals. The holiday reps are very polite and was on hand when we needed help or advice for days out.
My partner loved the new relaxation center, as did I. Be warned that the centre is extra and priced per day, or you can pay for a block booking. We just paid for 3 days whilst the kids took part in the Thomson club activities. I also enjoyed the pools and playing water tick with the kids, they especially enjoyed the forest games too. Think the disco's start in high season which we just missed out on. A bit of a disapointment but the kids made loads of friends and still had plenty to do at night time.
The campsite shop was more expensive than the local supermarket with less options so if you have a car then the travel for a big bulk buy as it's worth it. Overall a great holiday with plenty of modern activities mixed with outdoor adventure sports, great for all ages!
Great campsite in a really pretty area, and there's a nice lake by the beach. Campsite was clean and the staff were helpful. We would definitely recommend hiring a car when you are here, as most of the places of interest are not easy to get to from the site. We went on lots of nice walks around the campsite, and spent a lot of time by the pool (although be warned - the water was really cold). There is a basic shop on site, but this was a bit pricey, so I would recommend the Intermarche which is around a 15 minute drive away.
Nice campsite that seems to be well cared for by the owners. The Keycamp reps were friendly and were always easily reached if we had a problem. Campsite has the usual pool, football pitch, table tennis, playground etc. There is also a small shop and a restaurant, both of which we thought were slightly over priced. Evening entertainment is a disco.
