We have just returned from our second visit to La Carabasse with Siblu. Our children are aged 2 and 4. We stayed in a 3 bedroom mobile home with full deck and awning. The mobile homes are spacious- ours had 2 toilets and 2 showers, a great washing machine and full kitchen. We had air conditioning- highly recommended. Its a very relaxing holiday with simple pleasures. Lovely fresh baguettes and croissants every morning from the site supermarket. Kids club at 10am- A huge mention to Emilie and Margaux- they remembered my kids names from the moment they first met- had great english, loved playing games with them and listened to them. The girls loved them- the kids show every night from 8pm-9pm was the highlight of their day- Max, Patch and Lili Mascots were there and there was dancing and games every night where they were all included and made sure all kids were invited to participate. We rarely stayed later for the adult entertainment- friends told us it was good. The pool area is huge with 3 pools and ample amounts of sun loungers. The animations team do aqua aerobics and really fun pool dancing every day. The lifeguards are friendly and vigilant. Thank you to Carlos for looking after my 2 year old- she stood on a weaver fish at the beach and I took her back to the pool lifeguards- Carlos was excellent with her. The beach is fantastic- don't let this put you off going- you can buy pool shoes or jelly shoes for kids to wear at the beach- we were just a bit unlucky. We had a few minor issues regarding maintenance in our mobile home- Siblu are extremely Efficient- there was a maintenance person at our mobile with 30 minutes of reporting and all issues were resolved immediately- this is a huge bonus. We also found the reception team to be friendly and accommodating- especially Lisa who resolved our very first request on Arrival. There is free wifi in the bar areas- the drinks are expensive if you go beyond local wine and beer. You can purchase wifi for 2 devices for a week at 21 euro (devices cannot be used at same time though) and the signal was decent. We have already booked to return next year- we can't wait- brilliant family holiday, thank you to the entire Siblu team.

La Carabasse is absolutely amazing; the staff, lifeguards, groundsmen and management team are absolutely brilliant meaning we have returned on numerous occasions. The site is pretty big and the pool can get quite busy at times but its beautiful, well kept and offer plenty for kids and adults. Vias Plage has a lovely strip with plenty to offer and the beach is pretty and clean. We have three kids who have enjoyed the clubs and activities laid on as part of the fun pass which allows us to relax a few times a day. We have never booked direct with Siblu, preferring private rentals via directholidayhomes but have never had an issue during the 4 years we have holidayed there. The pool complex is something else, two large pools along with a toddlers pool keep everyone entertained during the day, plus the sun dances and water polo put on by the English speaking staff. The nighttime entertainment is also very professionally done and captivates the audience whilst sipping the reasonably priced drinks. There is a superb Vineyard just over the road selling excellent wine for less than 2 euros for a litre. when wine is that cheap and that good, why drink water!
Flights to Beziers (a 20 euro Taxi away) with Ryan Air cost about £200 per person return from Bristol (flights also available around London) and the average cost of a private 6-8 berth van around the £1600 mark.
The onsite shop means you self cater without leaving the site although the supermarkters are worth the bus ride as is the market in Vias!

Go to this site every year with family and I cannot fault it at all! We usually drive down from Calais with a few stops on route and it may be a boring journey but it is very easy. The site layout is good and very well maintained with all the caravans getting your own personal space. the activities on site are really good from the pool to the tennis courts there is always something to keep the kids happy. The local town is also good there are very nice restaurants down there to eat out aswell as a small supermarket if you didn't want to use the one on site! I would recommend getting the meat from the camp shop it is very nice! Also euro park across the road is a must. Beach is within walking distance but the pool is also very good. I'm on the countdown to my next holiday here in July. My word is try it out you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely love this place! Bit of a late review, but hey ho. Me and my family always come here every year. We love the little town up the road from the campsite. Campsite itself is really big and spacious, caravans are always lovely and very well presented. Swimming pool is nice and big and you always feel very safe as the lifeguards do a fabulous job. Kids love it here and keeps them very well entertained for 2 weeks, they enjoy coming back twice a year and we are already on a countdown to our next visit this July! Staff are always friendly and welcoming and we always feel safe on this resort. They have lots of entertainment on through the summer months and the kids clubs are good too. Overall siblu thanks for amazing holidays year after year.

Rented thru a friend who owned on site, he introduced us to a private rental.
Even though rental was private, still collect keys from Siblu reception, u pay extra for fun passes about £85 for the 3 of us for a week.
The trip was for end of May half term, we arrived 28th May mothering Sunday in France, pool was very busy, much less so rest of week.
The mobile home was superbly equipped and in a great location, both French and English near buy and felt really comfortable in our surroundings and not too far from amenities but not noisy either.
The swimming complex was well run and the lifeguard's mostly French with some English, lead guy was English and have to say really good structure to their policing of the pool.
Small incident where a girl hurt her leg, outside of pool area but come back inside to see friends and had difficulty walking was intercepted by a guard whom summoned transport and made sure she was taken to her parents in a safe manner.
The entertainment team are very nice people, I didn't get the first couple of shows and to be honest wasn't impressed, it was also clear the team had just been formed and were working out routines etc, Friday was cabaret which meant Carmen an English jazz type singer took the lead, Alicia keys, Whitney Beyoncé and others, really good.
the main show they had rehearsed for Saturday was rained off, only rainfall we experienced in our week, heavens opened. I am sure with what I had seen the show it would have been good.
The complex is a short walk from the strip, vias plage is a collection of shops, almost kiss me quick English style English resort type and various eateries, apparently this will be improved.
The strip was however excellent for eating options, we had various meals at the Brasserie and Saint Barth whom both offered 3 course meal deals, the Brasserie had a very good 15 euro 3 course which was very good, white bait, pork in a Dijon mustard and ice cream for desert. saint barth had a 17 euro deal which was really special, I had a Chinese style crispy rolls, should have had 3 but wife and daughter didn't hold back, main course 8 oz steak and a really decent size lemon meringue pie with sorbet ice cream, so impressed I want to high light for others to visit, it was outstanding!
If you walked to the end, nice bars on beach too.
Despite difficulty in getting here from Stansted airport and car hire problems we so loved this holiday we have already booked for 2018, it is that good!
