Opinions and experiences of visitors with Arnaoutchot (Arna)

Wonderful site right on a magnificent beach! The relaxed and friendly feel of this site has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. The shop/bakery are superb, the local cycle trails to Leon market are safe and make a good half day out, you can walk naked for more than 3 miles north (and find an almost totally secluded section of beach if you want). At night all you hear is the Atlantic surf! A site to return to as soon as possible!

This is a memorable, stunningly-sited holiday - in a forest that leads to the entire western seabord of fine sand!
Great people, always a treat. We've been three times, with and without our family.

We love this place. It is the ideal sit down in the sun and do nothing place. We always stay at least 10 days and have no desire to go of the site for anything during this time as everything you need is on site. The facilities are very clean and well looked after. we are going there again in three weeks time and cant wait to get there. This will be our third visit. Cant think of any other place in France i would rather be

Stayed here twice out of peak season when our children were young and fell in love with tranquility and the phenomenal beach - big skies, big surf and sand backed by pine forests and dunes stretching both ways as far as the eye can see.

As the kids have grown we eventually had, with some trepidation, to try during the school holidays. It was still lovely. Busier but with the same relaxed vibe and semi-feral children running wild in nature, making new friends and memories in a safe environment. Do naturists have better behaved children I wonder? Maybe not for you if you want absolute tranquility, but bliss for families.

I have stayed at a dozen different naturist camp sites across France & I think Arnaoutchot is the best!
I have been going there almost every year since 2004 (12 years at time of writing)

Very relaxing indeed and as well as the excellent facilities on site a stroll along the beach at sunset on the shores of the Atlantic is an experience that will stay with you always.

An incredibly relaxing facility in the pine forests with a beautiful beach. A long walk along the beach at sunset is a pleasure not to be missed. The quality of the facilities are very good and constantly being updated. The only downside is a 900 mile drive from the UK

We had our first experience of 'naturiste' break here in may 2013 which we were both somewhat nervous of. We had such a good experience that we will be returning again in 2014. We cannot compare this site as we have not visited others but can recommend as a wonderful place to relax after a long winter season working in the alpes.

We have been to Arna many time during the last 20 years and find it to be one of the best sites around. We have stayed in both rental accommodation and with our own caravan and enjoyed both. The only drawback is that it is a two day trip to get down there but you make that part of your holiday enjoyment. We look forward every year to our holiday stay at Arnaoutchot.

Arna is a truly beautiful place. You can feel any stresses and strains just drain out of you, and as soon as you arrive you can smell the sea, the sand and the pine in the forested area. Pitches are good, and there is fridge rental in a block by the washrooms/shower area. The shop and restaurant are excellent, and there is often evening entertainment. The beach is stunning, and you can walk/run for miles. There is also a running track around the site.

When you lie in your tent at night you can hear the sea, but not much else unless there is entertainment at the restaurant. Shower blocks are clean, and attended to regularly. Prices are very reasonable in off peak season which is when we go on holiday anyway. Arna does get very busy in the school holidays, and we wouldn't come then; the french schools do seem to have a long summer break.

We have been to Arna many times, and would recommend it to anyone.

Possibly the best naturist campsite in france.
goldi | 22-10-2012
A busy but friendly and uncrowded sea side site.
Very cheap off peak rates available
Lots of facilities as you would expect with this size of site.
Beach is excellent as are the local bike paths going in all directions
Clientelle mainly French with British and Dutch.
Excellent and very clean washing/toiletry facilities
