I have been enjoying coming to this place now a couple of times and especially just before the seasons starts at 1st of July. This is a fantastic place. I have never stayed here without staying at the camping Municipale - the service here has been enormous and kind. When you come here in the early season, the only other people will be the autocampers who by a mistake ended here or the ones that found it the year before.
Here you are staying in the nature - just behind the dunes you find the beach and you can hear the water all day and all night making you calm and relaxed. There, just behind the pale beige sand dune, nature generously gives its treasures up to you. As far as the eye can see, the sea and the sky meet together, the fine sandy beach melts into the dune behind it, and the sea spray is carried by the wind. When walking here you cant see the end of it. Just take a deep breath and enjoy! To the rhythm of the seasons, the sunsets and the tides, it draws you to explore its vast protected areas...
One of the best things about arriving before season is that when you have a beer at the local bar - restaurant you will meet all the local people. I became good friends with the baker, the major and the principal of the camping and of cause all the waiters and the owner of the restaurant. This helped a lot for the rest of the vacation and my son and I had much fun knowing them. My son so much that he wnts to go back there every summer. The people are very very friendly and it helps if you know some French or are willing to try in French.
