Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr 769 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Good – mostly hard ground.  Good size.

Nicely spaced – although the site isn’t particularly small  it is laid out in a way that it feels so

Is there water on each pitch?            

No but plenty of taps, with hoses attached, available.  However, we struggled to find one that was actually working!  I eventually found one on the side of the toilet block – we had to pop our hose over the fence though.

What is the electric like?           

Possibly 10A; we tripped it when we had the heating, hob and microwave on at the same time..

Drainage?     

We didn’t find it…

What’s the site access like?        

Very good into the campsite, but approach is through the town.  Head towards Narbonne-Plage/Gruisson – our sat-nav took us a completely different way towards a road that didn’t exist anymore!  However, both the phone maps got us here 🙂 (yes we had the sat-nav, 2 phone maps and a road atlas in use at the same time!!)

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Separate ladies and gents. Acceptable.  A difficult one on cleanliness as it pretty much rained our whole time here, making it difficult to keep floors etc. clean.

NO TOILET PAPER or soap provided

Toilets:                              2 cubicles + large disabled cubicle containing toilet, sink and  shower

Showers:                          1 shower – quite small

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

Dishwashing area (and laundry sinks)

Small, all-weather, basketball court.  Mini-golf.  Table tennis

Reception

Swimming pool, bar and snack-bar (closed out of season – from 31st October I think)

Bungalows and lodges for hire

Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?    

I don’t think so, but I’m having no problem with ours.

Excellent welcome.  English not brilliant (but then neither is my French) – we managed to have a good conversation, with him explaining about the fuel tax protests (manifestations) that were to take place today – 17th November 2018.

How much is it?     

We paid 16.80 Euro per night including electric, + .40 Euro per night local tax

What’s the area like?            

Just 2-3km along the canal path from Narbonne and it’s old town, or 10km the other way to Narbonne plage.  Unfortunately we have arrived during incessant rain and also on the day that ‘les gilets jaunes’ are protesting against fuel taxes across the country..
