Our #Bristanbul adventure continues, and we endeavour to keep you up to date all along the way. So here's our second site review (our first really as last night was a bunk on a ferry).
It really is going to be hard to put this into words (hence the pictures) so let me start by simply saying stunning.
After a 5am start following a 3.5 hour sleep and then covering 375 miles this is just what the doctor ordered. The site boasts more than just impressive looks. The onsite facilities are spot on and plentiful. The shower block has enough showers for everyone as well as separate changing rooms with sinks and benches. The only thing that bothered me was he stop start shower but that's not uncommon so just a personal snag for me.
There are three pools, 2 outdoor 1 of which is for the children, perfect for the summer dipping, and if it's a tad on the mild side you can use the indoor pool. The pitches are a very good size and set in idyllic French countryside. For those who want to visit, and trust me you should, you can use both static and touring accommodation. There are also glamping huts available which are located at the front of the park.
Of an evening you must visit the onsite restaurant and sample the home made authentic French cuisine. Simon Howard, Baileys Marketing Director, decided to fully embrace the French cooking and ordered the snails. When in Rome (France). Good size portions packed with flavour that comes with a very, very reasonable price tag. As we are in wine country it would be rude not to try a locally made red wine which was glorious. As was the second bottle.
This is a family friendly site so we do have some children on site which for me personally is never an issue. There are enough activities on site to keep the children happy and entertained while the adults can relax and soak in all the perfect scenery. The site is large with lots of different accommodation types and an onsite restaurant that serves the best French food I've eaten in quite some time. So if you like wine country, stunning scenery and generous on site facilities this is the site for you!
You can check out the site in more detail here or look through our pictures below, and remember to check back tomorrow for a review of our next stop in Lake Garda, Italy! You can also stay up to date with Bailey's Bristanbul trip via our Facebook and by following #Bristanbul across social media.
