Total relaxation

Review of benson from South West England / United Kingdom, September 2008

Review is based on the year: 2008

You couldn't beat La Jenny for a holiday of unwinding, relaxing and just getting back to nature.
The site and surrounding countryside are beautiful, calm and tranquil- except at night when the cicadas are going for it hammer and tongs, trying to outdo the constant roar of the ocean. Fabulous sea, endless golden beaches, dunes and acre after acre of pine forest mean fresh air scented only with pine and sage. This isn't an area for sightseeing - if you're looking for 'places to visit' and a busy itinerary of ticking off tourist spots go elsewhere.
Once on site, it's hard to leave as everything you could possibly want is already there and you can do as many or as few activities as you want.
The place is somewhat weather dependent in that you are more likely to enjoy it if the weather is sunny and warm. The sea breeze means it never gets too hot or sultry (we were there early September so I can't speak for earlier in the year)but even rainy days were enjoyable - and skin is waterproof so just get on with it!
We took a 'Mesange' chatlet for 3 x people and the extra bit of room that it afforded us was worth a few extra euros. The chalets were well appointed, clean and landscaped in such a way that we didn't overlook anyone else or ever feel we were squashed into 'holiday homes'. People have previously taken issue with the cooking facilities - 2 rings and a microwave and I can see this might make preparing meals for a family a bit difficult but for two people it was quite adequate. It was a shame not to have been able to cook outside on a barbeque but being surrounded completely by trees and dry undergrowth the fire precautions obviously wouldn't have made this possible anyway.
The pressure cooker (provided) was a boon as was the coffee machine and there was a full complement of utensils in the (very tiny) kitchen.
My one criticism of the site would be around food: The on-site supermarket was expensive and poorly stocked (possibly this was because it was the end of the season and they were winding stocks down). The restaurant too was very expensive for what you got (we only ate there once) as was the cafe next door.
Maybe we were harking back to impressions of Auberges and traditional French cooking which are no longer extant but we couldn't find anywhere to eat locally which didn't just pander to the pizza/burger/moules frites menu which was pretty disappointing. The best bet is to go to either local markets, side-of-the-road stalls for fruit and veg or stock up at the huge L'Eclerc supermarket in Ares (about 15 minutes drive away or if you're feeling energetic a couple of hours' cycle along one of the many 'piste cyclables') whose fish stall makes Harrods look like a local Spar. With a weak pound/strong Euro it's noticeably more expensive than France used to be but more satisfying to buy and cook your own food to eat out on the deck each evening than be ripped off.
All of this pales into insignificance when you consider what you do get from La Jenny; The place is well run, the staff charming and multi-lingual and even though it was the end of the season and they must have been pretty tired they genuinely seemed to want you to enjoy your stay.
With the sea only a 10 minute walk through the site and up over a dune the obvious place to swim was in the ocean but if you didn't fancy that the piscine is huge, varied and not overly chlorinated. It's also warm. Each section is a different temperature and has fantastic jacuzzi-type jets (great for massaging your weary limbs after tennis, golf or archery).
The beach is glorious as is the ocean. The water is clean, bracing and, in September, warm. There are dangers: 'Le Baines' is a sort of rip-tide which may look innocuous but will sweep even the strongest swimmer out with the current. When we were there the beach was lifeguarded until 6.00pm every day and the guys take their job very seriously, keeping watch all the time. They post a daily chart of high and low tide times, sea state and any particular hazzards that day - like 'medusas'(jellyfish) of which we only saw one the whole time we were there. Especially fascinating was watching the tide bring in huge shoals of fish which appear to be suspended in the enormous waves.
Once you've marvelled at yet another perfect sunset on the beach - look out for La Ray en Verte - stroll through the surf for as many miles as you wish along an almost empty beach and relish the moment.

The best place to get naked in Europe

Review of Dr.D from South East England / United Kingdom, January 2009
Language of the review:
Review is based on the year: 2007

If the ultimate in relaxation is a holiday then the natural The Jenny really is the thing. We spent some extra money to get a big Challet - Louisianna - in order to be sure to have shade as my wife is very fair. Hence the accommodation was much more than adequate. It was clean, there was a good kitchen and plenty of room even when it rained. Having said that, the previous year we had a Tortourelle and it was perfectly adequate despite the owner next door suggesting that it was one of the poorest Challet on the site. The owner of our Louisianna had made it very much a home from home, and I doubt that one would find a more homely wooden chalet without paying through the nose for one of these fancy Swiss affairs. Challet Each sits in its own sizeable space so you never feel cramped.
Everything that you need to get by is available from the supermarket site, although on occasion it is necessary to be a little inventive with one's cooking. However, this is not really a problem since there is a good restaurant on site with some exciting food at times (foie gras icecream for example was utterly delicious). There is a little oyster bar several times a week where half a dozen oysters and a glass of white was reasonable five euros - you could not get the wine for that in London. There is a fresh fish stall two or three times a week. Furthermore it's only a fifteen minute drive to the enormous' Super U 'on the Cap Ferret and there's an excellent market just beyond there.
The staff are very professional, although it is a slight shame (French employment law I guess) that they are not naked. Moreover, it is also slightly dissapointing that in 2007 the weather was not brilliant and there was a fair amount of textilism. Nonetheless, nudity is required at the pool and on the beach. I hope that reports that some naturist resorts are experiencing a takeover by part time textiles are exaggerated.
The beech is wonderful. It is supervised by professional lifeguards. The sea is not warm whilst tollerance, and almost always rough and invigorating. Do not come if you're looking for Greek-style still-warm sea bath. If you like kite flying, this is the place for you. This breeze that whips up the sea also keeps the temperature at a reasonable level. Irarely seems to get above 32ish. The pool is very good, quite large, although there's no shade and there are no sunbeds, chairs only.
There's entertainment most nights. Hugely funny is the Eurovision Song Contest 'Karaoke - that is it was funny to us, our friends contenental took it very seriously indeed and gave us dirty looks as we grinned loudly!
We've been to naturist camp sites but got tired of slumming it. If you want something approaching an apartment style naturist holiday, this takes some beating. Just do not come if you do not like being naked, it's not appreciated.
