Deposit charged on equipments, untidy facilities, not always friendly staff

Jason ELLIOTT

Great location and helpful staff.

02 September 2018
David SHAW

Great if you like an active holiday - lots of cycling/running paths and water sports, but the site is compromised by its noisy neighbours. Huttopia policy is for quiet after 11pm and the site itself observes this, but the neighbouring sites are VERY VERY noisy right through the night to the early morning hours. Do not book this site if you value your sleep. On the site itself, we have been to 7 different Huttopia sites and this one comes bottom for one main reason: it lacks a central hub/bar area like other Huttopia sites and really really needs Huttopia to invest some money in building a proper hub as you find at other Huttopia sites such as Saumur, Sarlat and Lanmary. It also suffers from a lack of variety in accommodation choice.
