This is our third visit to the site but we hadn't been for 6 years and there have been some good improvements with the supermarket and take away. The stage and evening entertainment have changed and been improved. You can use all the facilities at the Beach Garden and Charlemagne sites as well although with the improved curly slide at Nouvelle Floride we didn't feel the need to. Pools are lovely but in a really hot day the smaller pool was too warm! Slides were good and children's area was lovely. While campsite feels v clean with good facilities for restaurant and take away. The usual bakery with bread and pastries in the morning and then pizzas, chips, panini and salads from take away. Entertainment was good. 6 years ago they had resident professional entertainment team, never had such excellent entertainment. Now they have a mix of visiting acts together with their entertainment team. It's still v v good entertainment- starts at 9pm with a mini disco for the younger ones. This is more a mix of dancing/singing and messing about having fun, all in French. My two are grown up now but I'm not sure how they would have managed with it all being in French, but children normally cope! The main entertainment starts at 10pm and lasts 1 - 1.30 hours with dancing to popular songs for about half an hour after that. The beach is next to the entertainment area with a security gate. We were in a caravan one row back from the beach. Great spot but v v tight to get a caravan into and most pitches on the site would need a motor mover to get a big U.K. Caravan into. If you have a beach front plot don't even think about getting a double axle caravan on without a mover as you won't - the road is way too narrow. Beach is lovely - gorgeous sand. Lovely ice creams at the bar and Wednesday is foam party! Great fun. Pool opens at 10am and as long as you're there by about 10.20 July/August you'll get a bed. Children pool is very shallow, bigger pool is from 1.05 to 1.2 m and biggest pool has shallow area where slide drops into and then much deeper section further round. Water aerobics every morning at 11 am in shallower pool. Showers and toilets all v clean - takes about 4 minutes to walk from beach to entrance to camp site. There is a supermarket and bread shop immediately outside campsite and then a walk into town with clothes shops , ice creams and restaurants enjoy route. Takes about 10 minutes to get into the hub of the action. Restaurants are v good. If you check their website they publish their entertainment programme every two weeks. We particularly liked the Michael Jackson night, the cabaret and my favourite was the illusion and dancing night - first class show! They did have a wrestling act one night which I turned my nose up at initially, but I have to say it was hilarious with all the banter from the wrestlers and the heckling from the audience, but they need to work on their acting skills! We had a great holiday on a lovely campsite!

- Lucky you, at the Nouvelle Floride, the sea and sun are right on your doorstep, so just dip your toes into the clear blue water and chill out. And to make the pleasure last longer, our pool is heated from spring through to autumn. ... more less
