Camping Les Brunelles - Longeville-Sur-Mer


Recommended Posts

We are looking at this site for this years trip to France and wonder if anybody has any experience of it.

 

Also if so if there is any flexibility on the Sunday arrival and departure rule in August.

 

Thanks

Hi Mike we stayed at brunelles in 2012 late august for a little over a week the site is great i think we were on pitch 242 good size,make sure you've got a extra mains lead as we needed 2 to reach.

The swimming pools are brilliant loads of slides and a rapid type walk ways around the pools.

big bar area only had a take away once or twice think was ok.

entertainment was only in french but you are in there country after-all.

shop got good supply of things but there a super u in la tranche

theres also a good little restaurant out of gate turn right

cycles a must to get about the paths are very good around here well marked up two way in places.

staff very good and help full the only thing is the site feels a bit fare away from a town

hope this helps

we stayed in jard sur mer last year another good site http://www. camping-ecureuils. com/

In later August Les Brunelles accepts Camping Cheques - and the whole idea of that scheme is that you can arrive when you want and leave when you want. I would think that during the first two weeks in August they may stick to the 'arrivals rule' - after that there won't be a problem. Using Camping Cheques will save you a massive 22 euros per night for the last week in August - and they do seven nights for the price of six Camping Cheques.

See www. campingcheque. co. uk or details. Basically they are 'vouchers' (available either in paper form or on an electronic card) which cost £14. 95 each - and each 'cheque' pays for one night on site, for a pitch, two adults, car and caravanning, awning, and one dog! You pay the 'normal' site supplement for children, which you pay directly to the site, which is exactly the same amount as you would pay normally. Some sites do 7 nights for six, some 14 nights for 11, etc. They are intended for 'low season' use, but low season in France is very different to here, and lots of sites take them until mid-July and then again from mid-August and there are a few sites where they are accepted throughout the season. Each site specifies dates on which Camping Cheques can be used. There are about 675 sites in the guide book which comes when you buy cheques, in almost every country in Europe, and also in Morocco!

 

In the 'shoulder' seasons some people combine a week paying the 'normal' tariff, with a week using Camping Cheques, bringing down the total cost of the holiday.

Many thanks. Can you still book in advance using camping cheques or is it only if you just turn up?

On some sites they will accept a booking - it's always worth checking with the site itself - but they're mainly used by people who just want the freedom to turn up somewhere. I would always email and ask the question - the site you want may be happy for you to book in advance and then pay with Camping Cheques.

The Camping Cheque website definitely states that Les Brunelles will accept Camping Cheques from 26/04/2014 to 06/07/2014 and from 24/08/2014 to 28/09/2014, but if you're trying to use them earlier in August then they won't be accepted.

Maybe the Camping Cheques website isn't up to date - it seems to have problems at the moment with ferry bookings too! But to be fair someone ought to let them know - I may send an email as I'm always complaining about the website!
