We had an excellent stay at La Pa Opton. It was the Bikers week which was why we choose this week to go. You did not need to be a biker though to enjoy the holiday. We stayed in the La Petti Masson (a small villa) which was Ideal for 2. The camp laid on some activities and the bikers...

Thanks so much for the feedback. The little apartment La Petite Moisson has been really popular this year - the first time we've rented it out.

We stayed in a 2 bed mobile home for a week in September 2016 as part of Spring Harvest Bikers week. The site is spotless, the accommodation really comfortable, the pool brilliant, the staff superb and the overall atmosphere wonderful. We will be back!

We had a lovely family holiday in a villa which was spacious and well equipped. The site feels so safe and my grandchildren were able to cycle around on their own. They loved going to the shop and buying our morning baguettes and croissants! Their clubs were excellent and they spent many hours in the pool. The worship meetings were...

We went here for our family holiday. This was our fourth visit as it was so good. We went here with our 10 year old who happens to be in a wheelchair. The sense of inclusion for him is amazing.

Just got back from 2 weeks in a static caravan. The site is well cared for and the staff are very friendly. The kids clubs run 5 mornings a week from 10am-12pm and mine loved it. There is a very safe feel on the site and we felt happy to let our children go round the site meeting up with...

We had a wonderful week at Le Pas Opton. We had a static caravan and my son, his wife and three boys had a ready-erected tent. The site has a good swimming pool, with three different depths and a water chute. There's a shop, a bakery, a bar and a restaurant. There's bike hire and organised sports events if wanted....

Steven M, CEO at Le Pas Opton, responded to this review

Hi Lorri and thank you for the comments - there are quite a few people taking "three generation holidays" now. WIFI around the whole park would be expensive to install and many guests appreciate not being so connected for a while - more time for people! I hope we'll see you again in 2017.

Le Pas Opton would have been perfect if the weather wasn’t so bad. They had floods in that region for the first time in 15 at that time of year, so just bad timing! We went for the Whitsun week spring harvest and special things were on and it was very busy, which didn’t spoil it at all. These are...
