I am so glad to be here for the third time and so happy to see that it’s just as good as we remembered it. We first came here on a very hot August day in 2010, after a long journey from the north coast of Spain and were rewarded with this wonderful campsite with 2 swimming pools – one outdoors and one heated indoors with 2 Jacuzzis – very generous pitches separated by hedges and lots of space, all within a 5-minute walk to the Lac de Léon, even more beautiful. We came back at Easter in 2011 and it was still quite hot, so we’ve tried it once again and, even though the weather is not as hot as last time for this time of year, it is still warm enough to sit outside in the sun, especially when the breeze drops.
It has been a long and cold winter in most places, so just to be able to sit outside or to walk around in shorts is a luxury not to be taken for granted.
It’s our second day here and, as before, I joined the Aquagym class this morning and thoroughly enjoyed it, though it wasn’t as busy as last time, being after Easter now. Still, more room for the rest of us. We have also enjoyed swimming in the ‘empty’ (no people) heated pool and a relaxing time in the Jacuzzi, all included in the €20 fee per day for the 2 of us, the van and the electricity supply: very reasonable indeed.
We have also been for cycle rides around the lake, taking in all the gorgeous views from various angles and getting busy with the camera.
It’s all very quiet and most pitches are empty, but there are young families in the bungalows, albeit not many, unlike last time.
We have one more day here and then we’ll start to make our ‘very’ slow journey north, hoping to stop at Verteuil-sur-Charente again, then Lac des Varennes on the Vallée du Loir for 4 days and finally at our usual stop-over aires on the way to Calais (Broglie and Wissant).
