We stayed in March with our 3 children in a holiday home. Unfortunately the wind wasn't great for kite surfing but the pool was well heated and staff were very good. It all felt very safe. We would definately return.More

Thanks for your comment , we wish you to see you again.
No credit cards, cash only, so the Booking system relies upon the efficiency of the french postal system to ferry cheques back and forth to secure bookings in a set time period. If they don't arrive, the rude and aggressive reception staff cancel your booking and don't bother to call or email. So upon arriving for a long weekend and discovering our 'booked' site had been cancelled, we were undoubtedly upset and disappointed. My advice - stay down the road at Olbia camp site, much quieter, shady, reception staff lovely and they take credit cards!
Thanks for your comment.
Now we accept credit cards, so we don't have this trouble any longer.
But, concerning you personal case. When you did the booking, you had 15 days to send you the caution and the contract. Unfortunately we didn't receive it, so we didn't booked it and you didn't call us again for confirmation.
When you arrived, we explained you the situation (which can happen in every camp) and you thumped the table whereas we tried to find a solution. So we were not agressive, but you did.
Anyway, this kind of thing can happen in every camp and we wish you all the best.
We stayed here from 2 to 9 August 2013 for a relaxing holiday made of sun and excursions.
The camping is nothing exceptional...I wonder about the 4 stars...The services are basic, stardard as in other campings, a part from the entertainment...the guy is cheerful and kind. The shop inside is cheaper than others in the rest of peninsula (a part from Hyeres shopping centres).
It's near the beaches of La Madrague (near the salines area and basins that smell bad) and Almanarre (this one is better, ideal for surf and kite in particular). I recommend the natural reserve and its coast path starting from the Madrague with the beautiful bay of Darboussiere.
The staff (a part from the bar and the entertainment) is very cold and arrogant.
We give them a deposit of 20 euro for a socket and a power adaptor. Then, three days before our departure we finished our solar cream and, as our bancomat didn't work with the nearest local bank, I politely ask if I can have even only 10 euro back to buy another solar cream just not to become red as a lobster under the sun...First I was told to speak in italian because they don't understand my request and then they rudely say that they must hold the deposit until the last day...because we could have stolen the socket and the adaptor...A socket and an adaptor that I can buy with 5 euro!!!! That's foolish!
I ask if it is possible to give my identity card in return for my money. The answer was even in this case NO and with very rude manners.
Anyway...good holiday...the Presq'Ile is a gorgeous location.
Important: There are two campsites on the peninsula, both called Presqu'ile de Giens and run by the same management. I am reviewing the one closer to Hyères, near the rotary intersection (not the one near the port at La Tour Fondue).
We've been to this camping ground a few times by now, and off season, I can highly recommend it to people with tents:
- Tents are set up on a terraced hill, under olive trees
- If you avoid high season, there is a lot of room to set up your tent and you'll be able to keep a nice distance to neighbors
- The sanitary facilities are heated (not in summer, obviously), very clean (cleaned twice a day) and spacious, the showers are hot (but: bring your own toilet paper)
- Overall, the grounds are modern and well-kept
- Staff is nice, and while there are rules, they’re not tacked to every tree and guarded with a near-religious belief
- A small supermarket supplies you with everything you really need, especially for breakfast
- Walking to Giens (the main village) takes roughly 15 minutes
Points are deducted for:
- Not being right at the beach – it’s a short walk, maybe 500 metres
- Noisy animation during high season – but that's a matter of taste
