Wondering if we've left it too late to get a decent euro camp or other similar type holiday in France this summer. We have two little uns age 5 and 3 and need to Tavel outside of school term.
Ideally with air con, close to a beach and somewhere pretty. Anyone with an ideas??

We loved falaise narbonne plage, just south of Carcasson. We had a safari tent which was comfortable at night without air conditioning (in August), but I think the mobile homes had air conditioning.

It’s an easy walk to a huge beach, good choice of places to eat and kids clubs available.

No aircon but we love Huttopia sites. Rille probably our favourite but Land Sud was near the beach which was nice.

You definitely haven’t left it to late - check out www.sandaya.co.uk/ for some different options. It’s a French company, and has a different selection of sites from the more UK tourist-centred Eurocamp, so might open up some more choice for you. We stayed at Riviera d’Azur last year, which was lovely, but not a beach area really.

Eurocamp: we stayed at La Rive years ago, which was fab. Amazing pools for kids, and a beautiful lake beach. I don’t find Les Landes a beautiful area, and I wouldn’t pick it for that side of things, but you can’t find a better campsite IMO. It depends on how keen you are on day trips versus time spent on the site. For a much better area, but no beach, look at St Avit Loisirs. Lovely site, gorgeous Dordogne countryside with endless day trips to chateaux, caves, pretty mediaeval towns etc etc.

Good luck picking somewhere!

Look at Yelloh too. Cheaper than Eurocamp.

There are tons of companies similar to Eurocamp. They usually just have accommodation plots at a much larger campsite
Just Google family campsite with pools in France. Canvas Holidays is one, Yelloh, Vacan Soleil. There are loads

Have a look at Soleil Plage in the Dordogne. It isn't in the coast, but has a beach in the Dordogne river which is warm, plus loads of swimming pools.

We've stayed at a few Les Castels sites (we use our own tent, but quite a few of the sites have cabins etc). They've all been very beautiful sites in lovely locations. We haven't stayed in any of the ones close to a beach so can't recommend a specific one to meet your criteria.

We've been sit St Avit Loisirs like a PP, it's a fab site! Countryside is beautiful and lots of close towns to explore. Loads of activities on site and a great pool

I have been going to them for about 10 years with my two. Domaine des ormes is lovely in Brittany, croix de la vieux pont is nice near Paris and has a man made beach ( I am driving there currently) really nice one in south of France Spain side called la sirene.
They are perfect for children !

I second la Rive. Fabulous site that we've returned to a number of times, the first when DCs were 1 and 3yo. It is on the side of a lake with a soft sandy beach, and the water is clear and shallow for a long way out. Huge pool complex, free evening entertainment, surrounded by forest you can cycle or walk in and close to a couple of big supermarkets (so you aren't tied to the pricier on site shop). It is clean and the owners are constantly reinvesting in it. If you want a proper beach and the ocean, Biscarrosse Plage is only a short drive.
