Friday 7th August - Saturday 8th August
Osssh, it's gettting too "People-y"
After a couple of days of relaxing on small quirky aires, we decided it was time to change gear again. Before we left Les Peupliers we picked a beautiful looking campsite with a glorious pool and stunning beachside location. Unfortunately, as we were finding more and more in the South of France, the site we picked was full. Sooo, we shrugged our shoulders and continued along the coast towards Montpellier.
Between the city of Montpellier and the Mediterranean Sea is a series of ponds (small lakes) and a spit of land called "Palavas-les-flots". The Palavas-les-flots had 3 campsites dotted along it, all had swimming pools and on paper looked more than good enough to us. When we arrived at the first one reception was closed and we were told to come back in an hour. So we moved on to the next one.
Camping Montpellier Plage was a solid 3 star site. There were a couple of fast food restaurants/take outs, a couple of shops and a nice enough pool area. The toilet and shower facilities were good, totally in line with 3*s. BUT it was huge and dusty and so so busy. Everything about the site was fine, but we didn't fall in love with it, so we moved on the next morning.
