We visited this site in April 2019 to check if it was suitable for our Cali & Caravan in view of our foreseen September trip to/from UK.
We explained our setup (Cali+Caravan) to the people at reception and were told it was fine as they had suitable pitches, we had a look around the site and based on this we booked and paid a deposit for September (2 nights).
September: We arrived at the site on a hot (> 30°C) Saturday afternoon in late September to find it was fully booked, but no worries as we had booked more than 4 months in advance. We checked in at reception and were given a pitch number and set off to find it!!!!, the fact that we had to unhitch (to manoeuvre) at least 2 times before arriving at the pitch should have alerted us.
Impossible to get onto the v small pitch as there was too much of a height difference between the pitch (compacted soil) and the tarmac, we would have ripped the chassis off the caravan if we had tried.
We returned to the reception (hitching and un-hitching again) to remonstrate with the owner on how could this could have happened as we had made a prior visit to avoid this type of outcome!!
The owners best form of defence was attack, the conversation became heated and we had no option but to leave the site.
In simple terms we cannot recommend this site, which totally ignored our April visit and was down right obnoxious when we had the gall to complain.
Be warned.
