Site really close to the Pyla Dunes, however, you would have to be a fitness freak in order to reach the beach, or rather. to get back up the biggest dune in Europe! Sites are tiny (for a motorhome), pools great for kids, very busy at the weekend. Charged slightly reduced fee for ACSI membership, as said high season had already started - 23 June - not according to our ACSI guide.. The name of the site was Pyla Panorama (ACSI named it Pyla Camping). We will not return.

Amazing location as near to the dune as you can get with great access. Toilets ok ish but no seats or paper or soap provided but clean. most of them were chained off and closed and disconnected from water supply although the site was open for another week. WiFi expensive.. Very sandy pitches which are expected on a dune but gravelled as wide as our caravan wheel Base. I would not have wanted to have driven off the gravel as one tourer did and sank immediately. we managed to get him out but it took 5 adults and an hour to do it. Our caravan is 8 metres long and we were on the only pitch that could possibly fitted us but no room for awning and the car was very close too. Lots of pine trees dripping tree sap onto car and caravan which was hard to remove. Staff very helpful and let us stay an extra night although they were closed. excellent bus service outside the site entrance onto Arcachon.

Good location right by the sand dune, cafe, shop and unheated poo open out of season. Pitches sandy scattered downhill in amongst chalets in a pine wood. Sanitaries adequate staff pleasant but all a bit tatty and rundown. Due to the topography of the site not suitable for anyone with any mobility problems. There is access to the beach. But it's via the dune and a strenuous walk We enjoyed our stay but on reflection it would have been better to be nearer the town and to have better access to the beach, the views are stunning.

A good place to stay if you want to see the dune, excellent for paragliding. Shower block lovely and warm, lots of hot water. You can get free wifi in the cafe otherwise it is a little costly. Very friendly nice staff. Please be aware the reception is closed between mid-day and 2pm.
