Haven't been camping for a few years, we now have two DDs 7&2yrs old. I remember camping in France as a kid with big pitches separated by hedges and it was great. We hate being in touching distance of other tents grin. Due to the big cost of school holidays the camping stuff is coming out again this year to give it another try. Not fussed by entertainment on site but girls like climbing stuff and swinging from things so play area is useful, pool would be a bonus but not essential. Would rather have none if site quieter. Anyone got any good sites they can recommend?

Just been to domaine des ormes in Brittany. Bigger site but quiet and spread out, big pitches separated by hedges, play area, pool etc. Have a look!!

We went to Les Embruns last year. All pitches separated by hedges but just watch you don't get put on a small one if you have a big tent. There's a play area with bouncy castles, three pools - one for the slides, a toddler pool and one indoors - and some of the cleanest loos etc I have ever seen. The beach was great for body boarding too

We have just returned from l'atlantique near beg meil- lovely site with lots of hedges for privacy and shade. We did a eurocamp hol but they do normal pitches too. Great site-wonderful beach!

WE went to Chateau de lez Eaux, one of the Castels sites a couple of years ago, it ticked all the boxes except it is just over border in Normandy. It had a play area, a football pitch, a decent swimming pool complex, in the summer holidays I think there is a kids club but we went at May half term when there wasn't. It's got a shop and a bar/take out restaurant with outside tables, but no entertainment other than a big screen TV, pool table etc. We watched the Champions League Final in the TV room, it was all very civilised. Toilet blocks were spotless.
