Les Castels La Garangeoire
A world apart from the hustle and bustle of the coastal resorts, La Garangeoire lies on the stones of an ancient Gallo-Roman temple...
A world apart from the hustle and bustle of the coastal resorts, La Garangeoire lies on the stones of an ancient Gallo-Roman temple...
Excellent as usual. Bit quite due to the pandemic but suited us ok as we liked the peace. Staff and reception ect were all excellent and are thanks go to all the team that made it possible this year. We cannot comment on the bathing or catering as we did not use them.
Nice and comfortable and in good location for what we like.
Despite the Covid issue and the fact that only a handful of caravans were there all of the services provided were outstanding. Staff were great, facilities were great and kept in good order...no slacking off because it was near season end.
Pitch was large, flat, even surface, grass cut, hedge cut, lust a tree or two in case shade was needed.
The stay was difficult and different because of the Covid out break everyone had gone home But the people on site made as best as they could under the circumstances
Very friendly staff, well set up and maintained campsite.
Great new fun tents. Spacious pitches.
Could be improved by an outside light.
Very clean excellent swimming pool very friendly and helpful staff. A lot of the facilities were free whereas other campsites charge. Beautiful surroundings and great location.
Large well manicured pitches with hedges acting as a privacy screen.
Beautiful campsite, flowers. Lovely staff, hygiene measures due to covid well thought out.
Welcoming staff, lovely chalet, excellent position. Very enjoyable in the covid circumstances.
Spacious, warm and comfortable. Well-equipped and close to all amenities.
Everything. Fabulous pools. Kids loved the slides, the playground, playing football with their new friends from all over Europe, riding their bikes around the site, having more freedom than ever before, did i mention the pools? We loved the countryside setting, the peace and quiet, the kids having freedom (which meant we actually had time to put our feet up a little!), the pools and slides, the playground, friendly staff, activities, so much to do, but too relaxed to do half of it! The perfect antidote to 2020!
We were actually in a different unit which was just fabulous. Quiet location, Sunshine and shade, very well equipped, spacious, clean..
The huge spiders!
Friendly staff, Excellent facilities despite the pandemic. Our third stay at the site.
Good size pitch.
Amazing staff that just could not do enough for you. Made us feel so welcome and attended to every need. Huge praise to all staff.
The fact that we had to leave!
Really like the outdoor balcony
Little tight on space
It was a lovely relaxing stay. Not all the amenities were open but we knew this before hand. It was nice and quiet around the pool and the bar. Toilets and showers were always spotlessly clean!
With the shop being closed it would have been nice to be able to buy milk with the bread delivery. Our pitch kept flooding due to the amount of rain we had,
Nice and spacious.
Flooded several times with the amount of rain we had everyday. A bit too sheltered by the trees as it wasn’t drying the pitch out when it was sunny due to the trees.
Good communication on booking. Reception staff very friendly. Well organised check in.
Lovely spacious pitch and we appreciated the tranquility of the site being at a lower capacity
Some guests not wearing masks in the washing up room and not respecting the one way system in the showers/toilets.
The efforts to make the staff and visitors feel safe during the pandemic was excellent.
It was spotless.
Liked just about everything...
People critisizing the efforts and dedications to those running this place...
Quiet, clean, close to all facilities
Felt really safe as they had limited capacity during Covid-19, peaceful, quiet and relaxing.
Perfect for what we wanted.
Lovely campsite and facilities.
Food choices ran out very early on some evenings.
Spacious, clean mobile home.
We could not be happier with the team and site at La Garangeire. Helpful staff, facility well maintained. Thay told us clearly of limited facilities due to covid but didnt mind. They limited occupancy of the site to 25% so it was well spaced and peaceful. Lots to do in the area if you like walking and nature
Nothing really to dislike. It would have been nice to have a restaurant but had been closed as part of Covid management understandably
Large pitch with water and drainage. Also had a fridge, outdoor dining table.and sun loungers
Staff were excellent 👍
More could be done regarding waste disposal. Over complicated recycling area at the entrance/exit of site
Great sized pitch
Really nice swimming pool and walk / run routes around edge of site. Loved going on the lake in a pedalo.... general feel around the site was nice
classy, clean and comfortable
The site was stunning this year.Beautifully landscaped with lovely flowers.Excellent service as always.
The space around the caravan.Very clean.
Quiet, clean, large pitches, friendly staff.
Large private pitch
Maybe a little too shaded (if that’s possible)
Fantastic, We all had a great break away. We had booked but due to COVID we had to cancel. late July, we got the clearance to travel to France. We got straight on to Anastasia, who was just brilliant we booked last minute for 10 nights. We count ourselves very lucky to have had a holiday here. The staff were just fantastic ensuring all procedures were being met, all the while with a very positive and welcoming approach. The Pools and surrounding area spotless. We knew exactly what facilitates were open as the correspondence was outstanding. We felt part of the Team one big happy family.
It was a shame the mini-market wasn't open, so handy pop in for milk n bread usual. But having said that the team arranged for a bread collection each morning from the Reception bar. you just pre - ordered before 4 pm previous day all had to do was go collect it . Fantastic service in the scheme of what was going on around. Garangeoire thought of pretty much everything that they could possibly do to substitute the closure of some facilities on-site and give us the true family feeling and atmosphere that we usually get when we have been before. Rebooked for next year for the ultimate experience
This accommodation is first class . spotless in every way . Could not fault it at all. The private garden to the beds made up on arrival , abundance of Towels supplied , everything was immaculate. We loved staying here , probably our favorite accommodation so far , we have holidayed at La Garangeiore for the last 4 years in various types of accommodation. The TAOS 3 bed is the ultimate luxury as caravans/ homes go. Plenty of space inside and out , everything was catered for
Not having Air con , We were fine most of the time as we had shade from the bamboo/ garden around our plot but lucky for us we had extreme heat 34-36 few days and we found it a bit uncomfortable at night sleeping , Air con would have been very welcome. It would of been nice to have but not an necessity I would still book this accommodation . The mattress were a bit hard , not much give, almost need a soft mattress Topper top just to make it a little more snug. The beds took a few days getting used to.
Friendly staff, great facilities and a relaxing atmosphere.
Spacious and flat pitch
Location. Staff. Facilities. Support.
Would have berm good for bins / recycling to be a bit nearer. In more locations onsite perhaps? Wider range of takeaway/ food options.
Lovely big pitch. Extra options available like table & chairs. Location. Shade.
Hard ground so difficult re pegs.
Quiet, Large Partly shaded Pitch
Really liked the spacious pitches, the beautiful surroundings, the very good sanitary facilities and the superb poolside amenity.
The restaurant closed a week before our holiday ended which was poor. The size of food portions were very small on the two occasions we dined in the restaurant which made the meals “over priced” for what we received. We must state though that the service staff in the restaurant were first class. In the two weeks we stayed there was entertainment provided on ONE night only. This was very disappointing. We felt that our needs were rather neglected purely because it was near to “the end of your season”.
The peaceful setting of our pitch and the good size of our pitch.
Nothing that we disliked.
We had a quiet relaxing holiday again. The staff were very helpful as usual, particularly with our train journey to Nantes. Restaurant and take away were good.
Shop not opening until 8.30am was inconvenient on a couple of days.
There is a reasonable amount of sun on the pitch for the time of year.
Fittings were a bit tired, but we understand the chalet is to be replaced. We had problems working the gas fire.
Our family stayed in static accommodation and we pitched our caravan - we were all close to each other and able to enjoy a very valued family time
Great sized pitch with plenty of space
Adult swimming facility, lane swimming with no children
No fly screens on bedrooms in chalets.
Loved the shower, and the space of the living area.
No fly screens in bedroom
Horse riding and archery
The accommodation was dirty when we arrived and it took us 2hours to clean. We were going to complain on more than one occasion but because reception was busy we didn't. Otherwise out stay was very good.
Its a lovely place to stay for families with younger children.
Well equipped, attractive and well positioned.
Decking was under a tree which had roosting pigeons..you can guess...however, we accepted that the birds were there first.
The pitch was spacious and surrounded by trees, a quiet spot. The pool, the choice of activities, the archery instructor, kids club, bike route, lake
We loved this camping site set in the midst of a forest! It had activities for all ages. Really fantastic and we intend to go back again next year!!
More shadow opportunities at the Lagoon.
Space, light in-fall, all possible cutlery, very comfortable!!
Slightly softer beds.
excellent location and facilities
the bed was not comfortable
it was spacious
the bed was uncomfortable, the unit had no cooker
Clean site, in well wooded grounds and a most delightful staff who do their best for you.
The old grumpy woman , black hair and glasses, give her a miss, works evenings in the bar next to the swimming pools. A very obnoxious and rude disposition when dealing with me, a widower, can't speak French very well but tries, I would have given this site mostly 10 out of 10 if it were not for this personage.
Near the amenities but still private enough to sit outside in the morning having breakfast and feeding the birds
A little cramped , getting in and out of the shower for a big lad like myself
La Garangeoire is well set, with absolutely everything that you can need on site. Great accommodation, very good pools, good mini-market and superb bars and massive daily entertainment program. The care and attention of the staff is 2nd to none. Lot's of 'rules' - but all without doubt for the benefit of the guest. Eric has got it 100% on track here - winning combination.
space, quality, privacy
the evening entertainment (garden party, circus etc)
i think a changing area by the pool might be helpful
the location and outside area
a few more shelves would be helpful to put things!
Location was wonderful and team were really helpful. Lots of games and activities to keep children and adults happy.
Great location and good size accommodation. Comfortable and clean.
Friendly staff, well organised, clean and beautiful location.
Great value for money, clean and comfortable
Lovely setting in the forest, great pools and lots of space
Hornets outside our cabin each evening
A fantastic place to spend our holiday..the kids had an amazing time at the pool which was a little bit of paradise..lots activities for all the family and enjoyed all that La Garangeoire had to offer
Our Taos accommodation was fantastic. Clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for a family of 6 with great decked area and garden area..we loved it
Garden, trees, bike hire, improved pool
Restaurant very slow and food poor. Too hot at night in the mobile home.
The mini garden, the wooden deck
No air conditioning
Really enjoy our stay here and will be returning again. The staff was extremely helpful and the kids loved the pool.
I would recommend air fresheners in the toilets as many people use them and they smell quite bad. Also the restaurant was a little over priced for the quality of food provided.
Bins being so far away, takeaway not great
Size of pitch
Too many Brit's prefer indeed virtually all Brit's, sites with mixed nationals.
Very efficiently managed site
Ease of use. Calm and quiet
Amazing. Well equipped pitch. Great facilities and loads for kids to do.
Horse riding-my daughter was put on a pony much too small for her.
Private and well equipped
Everything as fantastic as usual. 6th time at this site.
Sun and shade.
Not the biggest pitch
Pool, activities and staff
Shower blocks in need of an update
Fridge and storage area, not too far away from showers and the pool area
The hike to bin area
Very well organised campsite
Comfortable bed, excellent bathroom
A bit small when weather was not perfect and no morning sun
General atmosphere is very relaxed and the personnel on site can’t do enough to help make your stay and outings as good and as smooth as possible. People told us that they had been returning year after year and we can see why. We booked for next year before we left!
The pitch is advertised as being by the entrance driveway as if it’s an issue but it was a perfect pitch for us. It is very quiet and peaceful; cool amongst the trees and BIG! People walk past to go to the recycling so we put up a windbreak as a screen or had a chat with many of them. Access could look tight for a large caravan but we placed our twin axle without an issue.
Overall location, sports animations, orienteering, lack of traffic on site, very friendly staff. Shop well priced.
No ball games in the pool? Not a lot of fun for 10-11 year old boys! Tennis expensive and lots of people playing without paying. Pizzas very average for price.
Clean, good condition
Cramped in places, no oven or microwave.
Loved the premium lodge which had everything we needed
For a premium lodge, the bed wasn’t the comfiest or best quality
Spacious and very well equipped
We really liked the feel of Castel Camping La Garangeoire. We plan to return in the future, probably to the same cabin Boules des ? We liked the location and the grounds. The staff also really made our holiday from reception to maintenance.
Amme the masseuse ( massage over the top of your clothes ). I have experience in receiving similar types of massage and although she is a lovely lady, she is not a good advert for services at Castel Camping La Garangeoire in our view. A real waste of E30, I'd wished I'd spent it on something else for my husband and I.
For a family with a teenage girl and 11 year old boy, the 3 bedrooms was definitely the best choice for us. I also liked the outside furniture. Next year I'm going bring fairy lights.
I'm not sure our BBQ was working correctly which put us off using it a bit. Maintenance was very quick, but all the gas had gone after 2 uses.
The campsite was well run and welcoming. We had a lovely holiday.
We enjoyed every aspect of our holiday to the excellent activities and entertainment provided. To the clean facilities, friendly staff and excellent food and drink. It was my sons second birthday and we had requested before we arrived a dairy free alternative cake as he is intolerant to dairy they where more than happy to provide this for us for our special meal in the restaurant for his birthday and it was beautiful.
Fridge and barbecue was spotless when we arrived. Pitch was an excellent size for our big tent.
loads of activities for kids
lady looking after the bar in the evenings was rude and not a good host, charges for activities annoying when they are free in most other campsites
home cooked food at the takeaway
restaurant books out v quickly
Everything just seemed to work very well. Very friendly staff. It was good how you could bring thw take away food into the main garden/bar. The kids loved the bouncy castle. There are plenty of activities for the kids to do and the organised progrmme is great. The pitch size was really good!
It was sometimes a little noisy on one or two of the the camping pitches after 11pm. It would be good if there was a crepiere and waffle house onsite too. The bands were great and it would have been good if they started at 8:30pm rather than 9pm. There was a bad smell in the male toilets.
The size of the pitch was fab. The hired equipment was in a lovely condition.
Friendly knowledgable staff. Clean and great facilities. So much to do for children and adults.
The only thing that was out of control- some stormy weather!
Great spot, sunny and plenty of space.
A couple of her les in the ground, we should have had filled, but forgot to ask before the tent went up.
What a great place, loads to do if you want, or you can just chill. Big site but plenty of room for all and never felt cramped or busy. Always kept clean and tidy.
Nothing at all
Hugh pitches with privacy, but easy to access with the caravan
Too many English speaking people. Not really like being in France. That’s ok if that’s what you want / expect, but felt a long way to go for a home from home for us. Also, weather was rubbish all week (again home from home). Nothing the park can do, but we did think we’d be going far enough south to get at least mid 20s.
The pitch was great.
Is very small for four people, but is all that was left when we booked.
Friendly helpful lots to do
Not enough sun on that angle of the pitch
Not enough evening entertainment for adults
My family were staying with Canvas Holidays. I still had my independence and we met up.
Pitch was good, staff very friendly and helpful. Site was clean and well organised
Pool was a bit overcrowded and a bit lacking in space for older children.
Pitch size great and bathroom very modern and clean
Pitch was a little dark with the high bank and tree cover
Excellent onsite facilities , rarely left the site , kids loved onsite activities, activities were excellent value especially archery and pony riding
- Mobile home, comfortable with three bedrooms and two showers. - Kids loves the kids club. - Bar with huge garden is great and feels nice and safe for children running around. - Pool is lovely and lots of sunloungers
(Minor points) - Pitch we had last year (Pivoines) was slightly better than this year (Roses) because it had more of a sun trap at the end of the day. - I have coeliac disease (I appreciate I am in the minority) - but a gluten free lagers in the bar wouldn’t go a miss. Overall- no real complaints.
Lovely and clean Showers are nice and powerful Beds comfy
Pillows not that comfortable
Despite all the staff having excellent English, I tried to speak French and appreciated the help and encouragement the staff gave me, instead of just speaking English back.
Would be good to have a "Changing Places" style disabled toilet facility, including an adult sized changing table. My daughter has cerebral palsy and is now too big for baby changing tables.
Lots for the children to do. Staff were very helpful
Reasonable sized living accommodation
Shower door dripped quite a lot onto bathroom floor when opened
Restaurant, lake, walks
Clean, modern and comfortable
4th time staying. Gets better each year. Entertainment this year was better than previous years. Hope to be back.
Very well laid out site. Very impressed with the new modifications at the reception area, very smart and much safer having a cycle path. Enjoyed all the activities we did especially the wine tasting and archery.
It was a shame to have a quiz on our last night (Friday) would have preferred some live music as some of the groups they had on were brilliant.
Space. Away from the camp with loads of garden area, 2 mins walk to the site. very relaxed.
Accommodation is getting a little tired, especially the Bathroom.
Really helpful friendly staff, site kept clean, fantastic amenities for all ages. Pre booking request put in to go back next year
Having the comfort of our own private sanitary block was amazing, truly spoilt!
Great facilities and very clean everywhere. There's so much to do if you don't just want to sit by the pool. The food is great and the service was spot on.
There does seem to be a problem with mosquitoes if you're camping. We got eaten alive the first night which put a bit pf a dampner on the holiday. So it would be a good idea if the campsite could warn people on their arrival so they can cover themselves in repellant every night.
Great space and perfect location.
The whole tone of the site is welcoming yet keen to encourage kindness between campers. Beautifully kept, great attention to detail and loads of great activities.
The bar queues were long and the restaurant was lower in quality than the site e.g. very few vegetables mistakes in service etc.
Noise from the back road at times !
The setting with the chateaux
The yellow toilet block Showers were quite dirty we preferred to walk to the gray block
We had grass not hard standing
We had grass with electric on the Avenue / drive
Nice campsite with large pitches, good walks for the dog around the site, friendly staff on arrival and while there. Would recommend this site.
No disposal for grey waste close by.
Lots to do, friendly staff. Clean and modern facilities
Lovely pitch would ask for the same one again if we go next year
Pedalo. Lake. Atmosphere. Staff.
Pool area - we were in la Guyonniere and the pool complex there is far superior which would influence us to choose it over you.
Great place, relaxing, variety of things to do, great beaches
good staff, very clean site, lots of things to do
it had everything you need
it could benefit with a fly screen on the doorway
Safe, fun family environment where staff are caring, helpful and friendly
Clean, spacious feel, easy access, great shower!
No Barbeque, no mosquito/insect guards on window, kitchen sink was blocking
Well equipped, very clean
We liked everything about the site and the facilities. Some of the best we have seen. The staff were fantastic.
We did receive quite a number of insect bites. Probably because we hadn't used any kind of insect repellent. If we come again we would definitely have to source the best insect repellant available.
The size of the pitch. It was huge, the largest we have ever used.
Nothing to dislike.
Fantastic food and facilities
Mooie, grote kampeerplaatsen, goed en schoon sanitair en leuke animatie
The site is amazing for campers - the size and locations of the pitchers for tourers is the best.
Being here before love the big pitches the eco friendly efforts
All staff are very helpful and always speak and happy to answer any question (we needed some caravan spares). There is lots to do, too much to mention (some free others have a fee). Toilets and showers are OK but see comments below. The takeaway, restaurant, pool bar, bar are all great including the shop with its fresh bread. Like the fact that shoes are not allowed in the pool area and you cannot reserve sunbeds :) . Overall a great site, the negatives are to help you improve further. Great holiday
The signs showing were things are could be improved (Used google) , including the old site entrance sign (confusing). Parking for caravans on arrival for checkin could be improved as the parking is for single vehicles with no trailers (I had to move as I'd blocked an exit point which had no sign). Some of the female toilets had no hand wash facilities, though the gents did! The allocated shower blocked could do with a little upgrading to be like the other
Liked the large pitch and the fact you are taken to it and everything is explained to you.
The pitch (Porquerolles) could be more level and not have the uneven ground to aid levelling the caravan and also getting access to pitch
Great safe facilities for kids, excellent kids club and really enthusiastic animation team. We will return.
Peaceful and part shade from the beautiful weather we experienced.
The friendly atmosphere in and around the campsite, great pitch, wi-fi brilliant. Enjoyed the yoga class. The showers are incredible.
We thought that there were fewer evenings with music in the big bar area compared to our stays in 2017 and 2016. This year 1 band played the week we were there.
It was quiet at night, well kept. very clean throughout
The staff were very helpful.
Relaxed atmosphere, friendliness, camp layout
Pool are could be improved
Big pitch, nicely private
Distance from main area
Everything. The culture of the campsite is excellent. The people are fantastic and helpful and everything about it is relaxed open and excellent value. I know this sounds over the top Can’t recommend enough.
Nothing. Could cater a little better for under 4s but that is really searching for something.
Huge space well Located.
Not to over crowded and loved the trail runs
Our pitch was on a slight slope
Much safer at reception with new layout. Well done!
Quality of food is reduced since last year. Pizzas sometimes only half done or raw eggs... offputting.
Very friendly and welcoming staff. Site was clean and well maintained, with a safe happy atmosphere.
The teenagers congregated on the sports field until after 11 at night, and although not rowdy you could hear them talking and their music.
Well equipped and maintained.
Great set-up had everything you could hope for. Staff were fantastic. We felt relaxed the moment we turned up to the moment we left.
It’s not a dislike but would have liked to of been in walking distance to a local village. But we knew that before going..
Clean and spacious no problems. Loved the table bbq on the decking!
It was very hot while we were there so if you can’t handle the lack of A/C pack a fan!
Both adults amd children had everything they needed.
Perfect and a really shady pitch.
No comment for this customer
Size of pitch was excellent.
New activities - concert and night walk Changes to roadway and parking outside reception
Lovely accommodation with very nice patio arrs
Need a few more umbrellas at the pool to share from the sun
Great patio area
Air conditioning would be great :-)
A clean, well-run site.
Unpleasant smell (sanitation?) near the shop/take-away.
Sanitary block worked well.
Amazing campsite - excellent overall
Not much- shop closing for 5 hours in the middle of the day is not good.
Clean - functional - nothing special but served a purpose.
Air conditioning did not work at night. Crazy! In that heat. Think it needs modernization - pretty average compared to other places I have stayed.
Friendly welcome upon arrival and great size pitches.
A bit too quiet in June for small kids, July would be better.
Great size pitches and easy access to water and drainage points.
Very clean and tidy. Very dog friendly. Not enough entertainment for older people
Take away service quality not good. Was ill next day after eating lasagne
Had all facilities
No all fine
Everything except the weather!!!
Facility for grey water disposal
No of items on menu not available
Liked the campsite, liked the facilities on offer, liked the level of cleanliness, liked the recycling bit which is well thought out. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
I thought the dishes on offer in the restaurant were limited. No vegetarian dishes but 2 mussel dishes?
It was very clean and had everything we needed.
It was drafty! I didn’t like the fact it didn’t have a curtain or cover over one of the doors which meant a loss of privacy. The toilet opening onto the kitchen - never a good idea. And no sink in the toilet which is a pet hate of mine
The staff are incredible in this place, all super friendly, a real credit to the place.
The level of activities was very poor in the 2nd week, I felt that more could have been done.
We stayed in the Taos Premium, it was well worth the spend, accommodation was close to amenities and really nice
While we shouldn't have really needed it, our promised internet never worked, despite numerous visits and attempts to get it to work.
A brilliant site that exceeded our expectations!
Great campsite, great facilities - cant wait to go back !
