The walk.

On the outside of the Porsche Curves from the D92 roundabout. Access is straightforward.






Our reviews

2018 review by  MCBMCB

I've stayed on this site in 2012, 2015 and 2018. I can't compare it to other sites as this is the only place I've stayed at Le Mans.

Pros

- Security: A private campsite with 24 hour security from opening on Wednesday to close on Monday
- Facilities: 3 shower blocks and 3 toilet blocks. Never had a queue for the showers, very small queues for the toilets at certain times. Facilities are constantly cleaned.
- Bar costs: €5 a pint of beer, a general selection of food, some hot (breakfast rolls a must) all at reasonable prices
- Marquee: has bar, plenty of tables and chairs both inside and out. 2 tvs showing the race and any football games that are on
- Entertainment: put a band on Friday and Sunday, a lot of fun
- Private Viewing: this is the biggest selling point for me. They have their own private viewing bank on the outside of the first Porsche Curve. You can see all the way back to the kink just after Arnage. Great location to stagger back and forth between your tent, the bar and the toilets and a great spot on the circuit
- Walkable to Arnage village
- Easy access in and out for cars, especially if driving from Arnage direction
- Circuit bus stop is across the road, easy to get to Mulsanne and Arnage parts of the circuit
- Pre erected tents available if wanted. We travelled to Le Mans by train and some of us took advantage of this, saved a lot of hauling of luggage
- Quiet site: this could be good or bad depending on what you like. No craziness that you may get on the other sites.

Cons

- Cost: the above doesn't come cheap, you pay for what you get
- Quiet site: this could be good or bad depending on what you like. No craziness that you may get on the other sites.
- Location: it is a bit out of the way for the rest of the circuit. The tram takes 45 mins to walk to, front straight area 25 mins, Tetre Rouge an hour on the outside of the circuit. Bring comfortable shoes.
- Noise: right next to the circuit. There is no relief from the car noise, light sleepers beware.


Overall this site would suit people who like things to be organised for them. This suited me, our group live in London so most people don't have a car. We were able to turn up on the train on the Thursday and know everything would be ready for us, with 13 people to herd this made life a lot easier. It's away from the main circuit action but over the course of a weekend there's plenty of time to see all the areas anyway. Arnage village is a 30 min walk and has plenty going for it. The staff are friendly, the bar is 40% cheaper than on circuit, and you have a great viewing location right at your tent.

As long as I'm arranging the trip I will use this campsite.
