Le Chatelet reviews

The Austin Family | July 2016

I was shocked to read the reviews here so thought I would add my own. This campsite is lovely and certainly ticked all my boxes. It is in a great location to explore or just soak in the sun on the direct beach. It wasn't overcrowded like some of the other campsites we visited on our most recent trip and the mobile home we had was very modern and had a big plot with very nice views. The Canvas active childrens club was ideal for my 11 and 12 year boys and we all had a lovely holiday despite a rough overnight ferry journey. If you after a nice picture perfect campsite which will entertain not only the kids but adults too then I would certainly recommend this to your list.

One day we hired bikes and ventured further a field to discover ruins of a fortress as well as the children being thrilled to find a cluster of caves to explore. The children also enjoyed searching for the special stones known as pierres sonnantes, which made a strange metallic sound when banged together. All in all a great campsite if you want a scenic and less busy holiday.

This campsite is just what we were in search of. A quiet site overlooking a lovely bay with a swimming pool and slides for the children and few fun activities to keep them entertained. We explored some fantastic walks near the cliff edge venturing along St Cast to the Pointe du Garde. Here we found the castle, Fort Lalatte, amoungst fabulous views of the Emerald coast.

Can't believe 'le Chatelet' has been awarded three red tents by the Michelin guide. I had respect for the Michelin guide but they have certainly got this one wrong. Basing it on the location then yes, it certainly does boast great views but the site itself needs a lot more tlc. The shower blocks are a fair distance from the mobiles and are not the cleanest to say the leaste. The lake in the center of the park was littered and uncared for and the speed limit set on the site was rarely marshalled. The evening entertainment music was good but the shop was a little too small so a trip to the local supermarket was a necesity. Le Chatelet has potential with it's impressive location but Michelin really should review this site again!

The Mitchell Family | June 2011

This was our first camping holiday in France. The area was lovely close to the pleasant Le Mont St Michel and impressive beached coves. The beach is within easy access from Le Chatelet campsite but I recommend using the roadway rather than the two marked paths as they can be steep with cliff edges either side, not so good if you have little one’s. The roadway has a pavement and tends to be quiet. The campsite itself was quiet with a small shop, bar and pool. Thankfully the pool is heated and there is a smaller pool for the kids to enjoy.

The kids also enjoyed the play areas and organised football however most days we visited the beach and the kids tended to stay with us rather than attend the kids clubs at the site. A nice campsite which wasn’t too overrun with holidaymakers. Some shabby mobile homes, luckily ours wasn’t one of them, we booked with Keycamp but the park owned mobiles looked good too.
