Douce Quietude – A French Mediterranean Campsite Paradise

Douce Quietude, A Cote d’Azur Campsite Paradise

Last summer, Jane spent an amazing week in Douce Quietude campsite. She loved it so much that she decided to let us know what the best parts of the campsite were.

 

Upon Arrival at Douce Quietude

Located on a picturesque hillside and only 5km from the sea, upon arrival you immediately find a welcoming atmosphere. A fantastic climate, plenty of palm trees and colourful flowers – there’s everything you would expect from a Mediterranean campsite. A new botanic garden on the campsite is perfect for a pleasant walk. This is made better by the sultry evenings, with the red glow of the Esterel mountains in the sunset. One of the things I loved about Douce Quietude is how the mobile homes are laid out. There is plenty of room between each of them, giving you a great feeling of space.

There is 1 waterslide, lots of sunbeds and a lifeguard dotted around the beautiful pool area. There is a playground in the campsite for smaller kids. Douce Quieude has many sports facilities on site for older kids like archery, tennis, mini golf and much more. Throughout the month of July and August there is entertainment onsite and there is also a sound proof disco at night.
