BIDART, Le Pavillon Royal

South West France

Selected because of its fabulous location overlooking a beautiful stretch of sandy beach. This beach is perfect for surfing and swimming. This site is named after the Royal Pavilion built in 1890 and perched on the hill next door. The beach is accessed via a gate, operated with a magnetic card, and down some steps. The site is surrounded by a pine forest and inland there are views of the Pyrénées. A long thin site laid out in attractive alleys, it slopes gently from the reception to the beach-view pitches. In spite of its size, it is a quiet peaceful site. There are also 7 golf courses within a 7km radius. A free shuttle bus service runs between the campsite, Bidart and the beaches in high season.

Very crowded and vastly overpriced for the pitch size, pitch quality and facilities but presume you are paying for the location with direct private access to the beach. Popular with groups of surfers, some of whose pitch cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. Narrow access roads for larger motorhomes.

Only at this site to meet other family members who were taking over motorhome. Very expensive, but possibly goes with location. Previously received site rules suggested a stict regime, this proved not to be the case. Welcome at reception was efficient and helpfull. Facilities good but strange set-up, i.e., showers and wash-hand basins in one block, wc's in another 50 yards away. Good on-site mini-market and cafe/take-away. Pitch small but adequate, some parts of site appeared very crowded. Great if you want beach and surf, perhaps not so for older/more mature tourist (me).

You can't fault the location - right above an excellent surfing&family beach. However, the site is lacking some care and attention and has very little open space for playing with the kids. Also quite expensive, and you feel they could spend a bit more of your money on modernising the facilities.
