We spent 10 days at this site in July and I have very mixed views on it.
My first impressions were negative but I do not like caravan holidays to start with so admit to a certain bias. This was not changed by the fact that the shower did not work and we were almost 1 full day without running water.
I found the facilities on site to be very basic and the supermarket to be poorly stocked and hugely overpriced. Perhaps my expectations were unrealistic but I had expected a cash machine and they don't have one. Fortunately both of these gripes can be solved within a few minutes drive away where there is a cash facility and a well stocked, well priced supermarket.
Another point worth raising is that the toilet facilities are unisex which some may find strange. It's a novel experience to be standing at a urinal as a group of women walk in chatting. For them too, I expect.
We booked through Siblu and found the staff friendly and very willing to help but sorely lacking in local knowledge. They had little experience and could not provide much more information than was available on marketing brochures. Most had only been in the area for a couple of months. If you intend to go here it would be useful to do some online searching and take the information with you.
On-site entertainment is provided free of charge but don't expect too much interaction in English.
The most positive aspect of the site is its location rather than its amenities.
I worked on Frejus (La Baume) for 2 years for keycamp holidays. I loved working there although i do have to point out the common faults for you.Although all the feed back from customers at the end was fabulous i thinks everyone should here whats not in the brochure. The site has a lot of sewage problems that do become apparent in the high season period. This has resulted in pumping of the drains and rats making an appearance. This is due to the levelling of the campsite in that the sewage pipes from the mobile homes are not all fiteed and level as they should be but i have heard that work is being done to resolve this problem for this year.The only other problem is that the campsite is not very safe to walk around late at night(alone) as there were a few incidents of theft and muggings suspected to be by the local travellers. Also on nights of the cirus four mobile homes were broken into and wallets and clothes were stolen from families.
Sorry to put a dampner but i really think people should be made aware of what can happen.
We all know that the Cote d'Azur is supposed to be the playground of the rich and famous - but why shouldn't the rest of us enjoy it. Thanks to a large number of campsites - providing tents and caravans (sorry mobile homes!) holidays here are more affordable. I wouldn't go as far as saying cheap - but definitely more affordable. Frejus in one town where there are many - most of which appear to be serviced by the big camping companies (Eurocamp, Keycamp to name but two). The site we stayed at was a 2-3mile drive from the town centre, had good facilities including 3 pools and enough space around the caravan. Frejus itself is an interesting town. Quite small, it combines remnants of Roman days (including a mini-Colosseum style ampitheatre now used bull fights), Renaissance church plus the usual Mediterranean facilities - including a lively market. It is well located as a base for travelleing round the Cote d'Azur with Nice, Cannes, Port Grimaud, Monaco (and many other less famous towns) within an hour's drive. I would recommend visiting each of these places. The one place that is worth a visit but difficult to reach is St Tropez. The road into town tends to have a very queue involving a wait of 30-60 minutes. There is a fast ferry from St Raphael which we never tried but which might be the solution. All in all Frejus is a good centre to use as a base for discovering this beautiful part of the world.
