Advantages: friendly, babysitting services, helpful and polite
Disadvantages: none as yet
From Barrow to Dover a drive of six and a half hours, not including stops, stay over at Dover, Ferry over to Calais, Then drive three hours to La Croix, where we finally reach our holiday park. Collapse in mobile home with a cup of tea then remember we are in France where milk is not full fat cream like at home, BUT they are forgiven as beer is cheap.
Keycamps offer the lot in holidays from the minute you book they send you online deatils of maps and other services and keep you uptodate with all new events going on.
When you arrive they will escort you to your mobile home, they use bicycles to get around everywhere, and they show you into your home, you will find a complimentary bottle of wine as well as a fridge full of ice. Last year we had a very young baby and they had even provided a small bag of ice pops int the freezer for her, they said it was so she could cool down whilst we unpacked!!!
The homes are spacious and have two door ways we use the back as our main door and put the table by the front door, they even provide safety gates which go across the full width of the double doors to ensure no roaming children.
Outside you have a bbq, sunloungers and chairs and a table, with plenty of grass areas and a hedge all the way around, they put stones for cars and also to deter youngsters from straying but that didnt stop my madam. The lake is accessible and where we stopped last year was only a few strides away, this year we are further away, so maybe mummy will relax.
The site has alot to offer which I have spoken about in a op. on the site. We stay for relaxing and hubby fishes ont he lake all night so he is happy. Last year he caught the lake record and was proud to have his photo in the lakeside shop. How upset will he be if it isnt there anymore.
The staff are very helpful and friendly and seem to be by far ones who encourage the kids group, they wer elaways about doing things, playing games, and having fu
n, we never saw others the whole time we were there, but knew of keycamp which was why we switched to use them and havent been dissapointed yet.
They offer solutions to your problems quickly and nothing was too much trouble. They helped with translation as w ell as tips to buy things from and where to visit in the area.
The tickets arrive with gifts for the children as well as detailed maps and free car sticker for the ferry and you get to choose the ferry time you want.
I cant fault these people at al and would recommend them everytime.
