Camping Pachacaid Reviews

Pachacaid Holiday Park

On a lovely hillside setting surrounded by lovely wooded hills is Pachacaid camp site. Away from the hustle and bustle of the Riviera this is a lovely site. So, if you’re looking for a peaceful setting with all the glam and glitz of such places as St Tropez close at hand then this is a winner for you. There is a friendly reception where they are happy to speak English and love it if you try your French even more. There are a number of shops, don’t expect to beat Oxford Street during the sales but you can get last-minute self-catering emergencies and gifts. The site also has very handy laundry and drying facilities.

There are 415 pitches at Pachacaid so you get loads of facilities without it being too large.

Your accommodation is in lovely chalets, purpose-built for your holiday and you have a number of choices. Firstly, bedrooms, either two or three sleeping a maximum of 8 (two on sofa beds in the lounge). Each chalet has it’s own shower and toilet and a separate living and kitchen area. The kitchen area has all the space and facilities you need (gas ring, oven, fridge freezer and microwave) to rustle up a more than acceptable family meal. You can also choose a chalet with outside decking which is great for using the barbecue that’s provided.

Facilities & Activities at Pachacaid

There is a onsite animation team where they play live music and arrange competitions and kids shows as well as an on site Fun Station which is great for keeping the kids occupied. The Fun Station runs regular morning, afternoon and evening events such as Super Hero Training, Art Attack, Spooks and World of Wizardry which keep the kids amused and give you some cracking down time.

Feeding, other than self catering, can be a nightmare but Pachacaid has a restaurant that serves food with rustic touches and gladly also has a kiddies menu. If they’re hungry during the day (when aren’t they?) then there is a snack bar and take away serving pizzas, chicken, burgers and all the other usual suspects.

Pachacaid has it’s own swimming in a lagoon which is great for all the family. There is also Niagara Pool Complex which is a fantastic water park that is on-site and opens to the public. It’s open from 2nd June to the 9th of August and is sure to be a winner with the children. You can also indulge in diving lessons, tennis, table-tennis, five-a-side football, basketball, volleyball gymnasium, archery and boules (see I said there was lots to do). It’s worth pointing out not all sports are available all season so you might want to check before you book. There is also a large modern bar and night club where there is live entertainment on a regular basis. The entertainment includes discos for children, family and adults. If that doesn’t keep them amused there is also a TV room.

Off site you can also go windsurfing, canoeing, dinghy sailing, kayaking, horse riding, golf, boat trips and all are less than 10 miles from the campsite. Don’t forget the Rivera’s jewels, St Tropez and Cannes so grab your OK! Magazine and try a bit of celebrity spotting. Local towns and villages such as Croix-Valmer and Cavalaire-sur-Mer are worth a visit for their lovely sandy beaches. And Aquavision d’Agay is a glass bottomed boat trips lasting 45 minutes and Grand Canyon du L’Verdon, the River Verdon gorge, is a 21kms long and 200-700m deep canyon with great raft rides for experienced rafters.

    We’ve always been to France for our family holidays since the birth of our 8 year old girl. Our last holiday took us to Camping Pachacaid in the French Riviera.

    The site really is a 5 star complex, with lots of activities and sports facilities you’ve always got something to do. The pool complex is very impressive although you do have to pay a small fee if you want to use the beds. My daughter loved the kids club and it didn’t take her long to make new friends.

    The restaurant is nice with a wide range of food, so even the fussy eaters will find something, however it is a little pricey.

    We did plenty of sight seeing and visited the beach on a few occasions.

    We usually never go back to the same place twice but we might break that rule for Pachacaid.
