Wow. This is one of the nicest campsites we've been to, and that's coming from a die hard Martragny addict. We arrived about 7 ( had a fight with the sat nav) and immediately saw people in swim suits walking around and had the fantastic idea of taking the kids off to the pool while Hank sorted the tent out.
