This campsite was perfect for us. We had an enormous pitch for our motorhome - shaded under the trees, just stunning. There was. generous amount of space in-between pitches so you had privacy. The mobile homes/wooden huts looked really cool too. The staff were so approachable, upbeat, friendly and spoke great English. The pool area was beautiful and included stylish shaded areas with loungers and beds. We had amazing coffee and smoothies at the bar, and you can order a charcuterie board for lunch, as well as fresh bread for the next morning. They also had a pizza/food van turn up in the evenings. The sound of the crickets was unreal and made us feel like we were in the wilderness. We would definitely recommend this campsite to all. Enjoy!

Possibly the best value for money accomodation in the area of Aubagne, the only think you need to bear in mind is that if you arrive after 7.30pm recepcion is closed and while they will leave you an envelope with your keys and a map there will be no one to answer any questions... Our glamping tent, for example, we didn't know how to switch on the exterior lights (there was a lamp hanging on the porch) nor the main light inside. If someone would have been available we could have asked, or they could at least have left instructions. But instead of that we had to rely on the smaller lamps and not have any light lighting our steps to the main path. So perhaps something to take into account for the camping management... Or you could try to arrive before it does get dark and they shut reception. The glamping tent was great and we actually wish we had had more time to spend at the camping. First of all, the tent is like a mini house with everything you need to have a comfy holiday; ensuite bathroom, fully equipped children, 2 rooms with capacity for up to 5 people. And secondly the camping itself is pretty great: lovely natural setting, great swimming pool, plenty of things to do for the kids, a small bar...

Good access to a lovely wooded site with reasonable sized pitches. Sanitary units were clean, with hot water to showers at all times. Staff were extremely helpful and spoke English. Free buses to Aubagne Station then trains to Marseille. The problem with this site is that it has no chemical disposal point for toilet waste (you have to drive to a disposal point in Aubagne) and sink and wash water have to be emptied into a WC - not easy to lift when full.

We stayed for 3 nights and it was great. We rented an tent pitch and we liked it. There were trees, so lots of shadow and the toilets close and clean. The pool was closed but I am sure it"s nice.You can sit at the bar and drink something as it"s really nice.
