ARES, La Cigale

South West France4.5

Selected because this is a delightful little site in a wooded setting, walking distance of the centre of Arès. There is easy access to a small lagoon on the Bassin d'Arcachon and it is only a 15-minute drive from magnificent Atlantic surfing beaches. It is a great area for cycling and walking. The site is beautifully maintained with pretty floral displays and well tended shrubs and trees. It offers a quiet friendly atmosphere where the owners always make you feel welcome. You may be aware of some traffic noise from the adjacent road. There is a discount on the pitch prices if you book in advance, even in the low season.
