Camping Du Poulquer: Great Family Campsite

Booked via the Caravan club in the UK, who always go for the best pitches available. In our case these turned out to be generously sized pitches off a tree lined avenue, with hedging three quarters the way around (pitches about 36 foot long). Many people seemed to park in the empty pitches opposite them, which the owner did mind.<br/><br/>The electric points catered for both English &amp; French style sockets, so there was no need for an adapter. Water points were situated at either end of the row, together with bins.<br/>A Father and Son combination ran the site in a relaxed and informal style with assistance from a couple of lads who cleaned the pool each night, weeded the hedges etc.<br/>Everything was kept in very good order. <br/><br/>The sites on the smaller side, and with the proximity of the Town we never used the bar or cafe, but collected bread daily from their small shop. Toilets and showers are clean and adequate - tiled shower cubicles of a good size (but that annoying push button thing for water that only gives you about 5 seconds before you have to push again!). The toilets are English style, and as usual no toilet paper!<br/><br/>The site is highly recommeded.

There were two main reasons for choosing this site: the pool with water slides for the kids, and the proximity of the town for us.<br/>Both proved to be great advantages and made this site one of the best camping holidays we have had in France. <br/>Firstly the pool: very well maintained with a main heated pool, a children’s splash pool with mini-slide and three water slides that kept the kids happy for hours (although rather inexplicably they did turn off the water slides during lunch time). there were no silly rules about what bathers men could wear - please yourself. Loungers and chairs were provided, and were usually sufficient except on the busiest of days.<br/><br/>It's just a couple of minutes walk from the site to Benodet, which made for a convenient pop out at lunch time or for a pleasant evening walk along the decked prom.
