The site was lovely, great toilet blocks. Large spacious pitches. Pool area great. The only downside was the mosquitos. I was eaten alive!! we had strong repellent, citronella candles lit but still were bitten! They were so bad we were cabined up in our caravan by 8pm as we dare not sit outside for the fear of being bitten! went...

Dear Sir, Madam, Thank you very much for your stay on our campsite and your compliments about the sanitary, the pitches and our pool area! This year we were also unpleasantly surprised by the fact that our village was infested with mosquitoes this summer. The area around the campsite is treated with biological products, which destroy the larvae before hatching....

We enjoyed a lovely family holiday in August using a campervan on the river. It was hot and the pool and area was great. The water slides were good fun. The cafe and restaurant was of a high standard. The staff were all very friendly and all spoke English.

We stayed here for 4 nights between 1st and 5th of August. When we first arrived reception was heaving and the girl who was suppose to escort us to our pitch got confused and took the wrong family. Eventually things were sorted. The pitch was more or less as far away from reception and the pool as you could get...

We had a really good week here. We stayed in a Taos mobile home which was really amazing with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a private deck with sun loungers and garden furniture. It was so relaxing to hang out there in the evening. The people on the reception are super friendly and super helpful. One girl found as recommendations...

Thank you very much for your recommendations! We are sorry for your first impression, which is so important. Our reception desk sure is small, but should not look shabby and dirty! We are sorry we gave you this impression and will do everything to avoid this in future. We are very glad you did have a nice stay with us!

Good site on banks of the river, varying pitch sizes but all big. No swimming allowed in the river. Very fast flowing, but very pleasant sitting on the bank side. We stayed here for three nights on our way back North, travelling in a 25ft motorhome. Outside pool area was very good, lots of space and areas to sit or...

There are several categories of pitch at this very large site, the best having a river view. These are the most expensive but are the sunniest least claustrophobic. Our visit was in mid June and apart from the bar nothing else was open, a bit disappointing considering the 26 euros / night it cost us.

Thank you very much for your stay at Hippocampe! During the month of June, our swimming pools, bar and restaurant were open, only the camping shop wasn’t open yet. We also organized activities during the weekends. Of course, this is not as intensive as in the high season. We hope you did have a nice stay even though.
