Opinions and experiences of visitors with Centre Hélio-Marin Montalivet

Racist staf speak excellent English ibut only if a white person is present. Otherwise they jointly pretend not to understand a word.

This is our third visit and it is getting better. There were far less clothed people than in previous years.
We have two concerns.
1. The showers are (at best) warm at worst.... brrrr!
2. Some noise in night from campers returning in early hours. and noise from the beach most nights / early morning
Pitches are very sandy but generally this is an excellent site, great pools, lots of activities, very clean facilities.

We stayed here with our camping car in Summer 2016.
Is a great site with lots of activities and facilities. It's very large and has two pools both are excellent. There are a range of shops and restaurants. Cycling is easy and there are some great paths in the area. The pitches can be very sandy and its easy to get stuck!
Our only problem is that it is more clothing optional than naturist. Even though it was the height of summer about 1/4 of guests were clothed for much of the time. Many of the activities seem to be clothed as well which gives the OK for others to be.
There's quite a lot of children/teenagers many are fully clothed all the time and they tend to congregate (loiter as teenagers do!) It's understandable but sometimes makes it feel like a textile site. Pools are totally naturist.

We have been going to CHM since 1987. For us, it is the best Naturist site, and we have tried quite a few.

We started staying in mobile homes and gradually moved to bungalows and bought our own bungalow in 1999.

The atmosphere in CHM is special, we relax totally within 30 minutes of arriving. It is the size of a medium town (circa 12,000 people in high season) and as such you have to make an effort to be a part of what is happening; no-one is coming to find you.

We have found it to be safe for our children; from a very early age we could tie their name badges onto their wrists and let them off. There are so many activities for them to do; we would always have the morning to ourselves as the staff were looking after them at football, surfing, archery, crafts or whatever.

We tend to use the site shower blocks as it is much quicker for the family; even now with the two of us we still go to the shower block. Expect them to be crowded at peak time in peak season, c'est la vie.

We have found it to be the only large site where you can feel comfortable going nude all day, to the shops, the restaurants, the reception.

We love the fact that you cannot pay music that can be heard by anyone else. we love that nudity is enforced.

In a word - Superb.

We stayed in 2014 and the place was fair, this year in 2015 a total disaster and we will never go back. The booking system and pitch control are a joke, the toilet and shower cleaning very poor, overflowing bins, noise, dirt, you name it. We stayed in the camper van area on hardstanding but the remaining pitches are basically dirty soft rutted sand. The only thing in its favor are excellent shops and restaurants, but you can get these on much better sites. Don't waste your money!

Expensive, no atmosfere, long hot walk to pools like the suburbs of Birmingham without the rain.
