This year we flew to Bordeaux and hired a car stayed in Camping Le Vieux port. Even though we had an ace holiday didnt like the campsite it was huge and we had terrible problems with noise and tents too close to each other it was horrible. Also felt that the location of the site was too far to drive everywhere - we did loads of trips but the evenings were boring and felt the this area of france was too dull for us. Am looking at Dordogne with the canoeing etc but the weather in mid July is concerning me Ive been told its boiling. The Vieux port had loads of trees and a gentle breeze from the sea. The boys need pools, fun, cycling and socialising. The site must be less than 2hrs from an airport and flights from Bristol. Any recommendations? Soleil Plage is coming up as a fav.

Near Biarritz there are quite a few little countryside sites which are white isolated but are still close to civilisation. We've never gone to any 'named' campsites always preferring seclusion and beautiful country but this may change when twin Dds come along! grin

We went to the Dordogne this year. Social plage was our favourite but we couldn't get the dates we wanted so ended up at les valades. It's much smaller and less commercialised than soleil plage but was real lovely. Very quiet at night. When canoeing down the Dordogne river we spotted soleil plage. It was very busy and the'beach' was not as the website suggests, but it all depends what you are after.

cAmping Port du Limeuil is fab, right on the banks of the river, where the Dordogne meets the Vezere, so loads of fun riding the river current on inflatables. BBQS on the beach at night, small pool on site. nO idea about airport though as we stayed there as part of a Campervan road trip this year, and it was VERY hot!
This is the beach, if you don't want EHU some pitches are on the riverbanks, we had EHU with a. Fab view.

Sorry, forget the EHU bit, but Eurocamp do have caravans and ready tents there.

La Garangeoire in the Vendee, but go with Canvas rather than Eurocamp (much bigger pitches).
Or La Palombiere in the Dordogne. Fab campsite (although we did see a few snakes - eeek!

In the dordogne I recommend Les Paradis on the Vezere, and in the vendee I recommend Le Pin Parasol. Have stayed on nearly a dozen eurocamp sites over the years and these are the best I have seen. And I totally recommend Safari tents over classic tents and vans...!!
