SITE

Arna is a large site of 110 acres, containing permanent chalets, pre-pitched tents and caravan/camping pitches.  The location of the entrance is at N43.9073° W1.3614°.

 

We spent twelve nights there in July.  When we arrived and signed in at reception we were then directed to wait for someone who would site us and connect the electricity.  Presumably they don't want just anyone connecting to their power supply.

 

There is a large supermarket and a small bakery together with other small shops selling newspapers and magazines, toys, beach equipment etc and a hairdresser.  There are also five bars and restaurants.

 

While there we visited the market at Leon - N43.8754° W1.3025°; and the Etang de Leon - N43.8874° W1.3155°.  On the way to Arna, there is a water tower that has been beautifully decorated - N43.9152° W1.3042°.

 

We didn't like Arna as much as we had liked Euronat the year before.  The pitches seemed smaller and the whole place seemed more cramped.  However we particularly liked the large supermarket which sold a wide variety of fresh meat and fresh fruit and vegetables as well as general groceries - but we did miss the Euronat baker!

As Arna is only about fifty-five miles from the Spanish border, one day we decided to drive down to Spain, just because we could.  The transition from France into Spain was most unexciting, as we just drove across a river bridge and there we were - in Spain.  No border checks, no passport control, we were just there.  We then drove a further fifteen miles into San Sebastián and spent a couple of hours or so exploring the town before returning.

Euronat - entrance at N45.4162° W1.1299° - is a vast site of about 830 acres set in pine forest.  It is divided into several 'villages' each named after one of the continents, a large caravanning area and a large camping area.  The villages are full of chalets and the camping area is laid out along several winding roads.  The main road through the centre of the site is about 1.3 miles long.

 

There is a large Market Place with many shops around it, but it lacked a well-stocked supermarket.  We particularly liked the bakery, where a young man in his late twenties produced the most wonderful bread.  We had a different loaf each day and didn't sample his entire range!  One of the shopkeepers had a swallows' nest in the roof of his porch and he took great delight in showing us his babies.
