Let’s start at the very beginning. The main gate have stopped using the Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) that enabled those using the camping site to enter without a card. So, it’s back to the old system of going into the office and buying a card, which can then be waved at the sensor post by the cabin. The office has a chap sitting by the entrance dispensing hand gel. You will need ID, preferably a passport, to get the card. However, Camping Oltra are still using their ANPR at their entrance.

The office at the camping now has a queuing system to rival some theme parks. If it gets to the end of the line, no idea where you stand next. But so far, after two visits, we were at the head of the queue both times. There are two downloadable forms on the website to warn you about what to expect. Wear a mask, and take your own pen. By the way, for a Saturday in June, the place is empty compared to normal.

Thanks for the updates.

Glad to see the back of the ANPR system on the main gate. No problem with Oltra using it though.

Guess the card is still valid for 12 months..?

There is a lengthy list of prices iat the entrance to the Office. We paid €25, that being for the camping season, but it looked as if there was an annual rate, with a discount if you lived in Agde. There wasn’t much else to read while the man with the hand sanitiser decided if we might be allowed entry.

The annual price for a pass is 210 euros, this hasn't changed for the last 3 years.

If you live in Agde, only and can present proof you get a discount 10-20%.

If you can get sponsored by a Cap business (Carte de Parrainage) it will cost 50 euros

We know that the title is Changes, but this is a non Change. In October last year, there was a lovely map at the sea end of Port Nature, showing various works that should have occurred on the seafront between Tantra and the Camping. It had many lovely lines, and shaded areas, but no key to say what they meant. The map has now gone, and no work seems to have been carried out.

Just finished afternoon walk round village. Please bear in mind that it’s a Sunday, although it is Mother’s Day here.Port Ambonne has Pilouterie and Palmerie and Bodega Bar all open. Area around Melrose no signs of life. Crossing over by Waikiki, that’s shut, and no sign of any restaurant being open. Sea end of PN, Chicken Restaurant open, but no customers. Pizza Restaurant closed down and now clothes shop. Baskin Robbins open. Mississippi open, but few customers. Staff are wearing masks, but as chin ornaments. Calypso and Horizon both shut. Ô2Bizou open, so stopped for a drink. Got lowdown on walkway failure. Was scheduled to start on Monday 16 March, but after Macrons speech it never started. If they can afford it, maybe next year. Swimming Pool not even filled. Onto Helio. Gymnos open, but no takeaway till 14 June. Green Bazaar, Bakery and 1664 all open. Spar has had a makeover, looks nice. All 3 beach bars built but not open. Sun Beach Restaurant now open, and that was rammed yesterday. Back to Campsite via Allé Mer. Total of 11 Caravans on it, 2 of which were Gardiennage drop offs, and unoccupied so far. I’ve seen better occupancy on 15th March.

We will miss you. Quite frankly, the whole place, including Plage de côchons, needs a few more people to make it work! Early days though.

Thank you so much for your updates. We have already missed two short visits we had planned this year. We do have two more booked for last few days of August into September and at the very end of that month.

Could you please let us know if Eden is open and if the 2+2 / Histoires d' O sauna looks as though it might start again this year?

Please keep posting. Thank you.

The afternoon walk included Jardin de Eden. The main door was open, so managed to have a look round. The pink pool has been filled with water, but nothing else appeared to be open. One apartement had its shutters up. No visible sun loungers, but the blackboard by the door suggested that a bar should have been open. Also explored Jardin de Babylon, no signs of life, no cars outside, no doors open to go in and have a look. Natureva Spa did appear to be open though. Down at the sea end of PN, La Canne a Sucre, a Tapas bar/ restaurant has now opened. Calypso will be reopening shortly judging by the wood staining team. Waiki Beach look to be opening shortly, as all the tables now have glasses and cutlery. Wine and spirits were being delivered as we went past. Couldn’t see if they had filled the pool. Mississippi look to have scrapped the evening service, as all table condiments, ashtrays and umbrellas were being cleared by 5pm. The beach, as viewed from Ô2bizoux terrasse had about 8 people on it, but the two very cold beers consumed were much appreciated. Had to turn down the peanuts though.

Hi. Tbanks . I had to post the keys recorded delivery to the new agent as I cannot travel ( cancelled flights). Glad to see Joys is open - one of my all time favourites. I see their menu every day as I follow them on Faceboox. The Terrasse cafe beside Joys is also now open ( again I follow them on a social media site).

Your updates are very useful. I guess it must be a strange experience being there now. ( compared to previous Junes)

The next big announcement will be on Monday 22June by the French PM. Until then, no club will be able to open, so Tantra, Le Juls, etc, including the Saunas will have to stay closed. If you follow a website called France 24 English, they cover the pressers, with an English translator.

Cap D'Agde/London

I think Macron has done a very good job under difficult circumstances which has tested most world leaders.

He's been humble enough to admit that they made lots of mistakes at the beginning and during the confinement, but magnanimous to reward all workers during the crisis.

Quite a contrast to the Uk (and the USA) where its leaders have been patting themselves on the back despite the disastrous outcomes, in both the infection/death rates and economic consequences.

And what reward will all those front line workers get who risked their lives helping others.

More pay freezes and cuts to go with the 10 years of pay deflation suffered in the UK by the public services.

The good news from Macron last night was ‘“I will be very clear tonight, compatriots: the Republic won’t erase any name from its history. It will forget none of its artworks, it won’t take down statues”

Apart from the Oltra water features at the entrance to the campsite, and near reception, is anyone aware of any other monuments that need to be looked after within the Village? The one on the roundabout looks secured already by the size of it. Also artworks?

Another, shorter, afternoon stroll. Beach now much busier. All 3 beach bars/restaurants/loungers now open. No sight of any lifeguard stations being open. Glamour looks shut. Foam Party area had an open door, so looked through. The pool bit was empty. The cafe next door is still closed. Couple of drinks in Ô2Bizoux ,very nice. The menu has been expanded a bit. The lads have taken on a new barman/cook. Menu in English due next week. Calypso now open. Horizon still closed. Tantra looks closed with the sign board by the swimming pool still covered. Talking to an English Couple, they reckoned that Missisipi and Calypso have been crowded in the evening. Round to Hélio, hairdressers all open, just in case you get here after 4 July without your locks having been coiffured back in the U.K. The Buffet Volante le s now open, was called the Blue Lagoon, or something like that. Hot and Tasty is also open, but bas had to remove some tables.The Spar supermarket, that we said previously had been given a makeover has got an extra bit added on, integrating the old clothes shop between it and 1664. The Thai Restaurant near 1664 is now open. So, back to the campsite, where an extra shop has been added at the entrance. No signs, no idea what it is for as yet. The fish shop at the entrance is now opening on 26 June. And the front of our mobile home has now been fixed after speeding groundstaff put three holes in it by kicking up stones. Free and Gratis, which was nice. May do another walk tomorrow, after the gas inspection, and also the ing. Have a nice night.

Forgot something from yesterday’s stroll. Just by Horizon, work has started on a large wheelchair access ramp system on three levels. Presumably this is the start of the boardwalk plan mentioned earlier at the sea end of Port Nature.

This is outside the village, but the bus journey starts at the Village. For those who used to come down at the end of May, they may have gone to a wine tasting event, over 3 days, at the main harbour in Le Cap d’Agde. €3 for a wine glass, and tickets for 3 tastings. As nobody ever wanted the tokens, rather more than 3 tastings could be managed from the 150 or so stalls. The d*unk chap at the Besson Wine Co-op was dispensing large measures by lunch! Well, it’s back on from Sunday 12 July to Tuesday 14 July. Bit smaller, with only 70 stalls though. If you don’t want to walk, the Number 4 bus is quite easy to use for €1 each way. Would recommend the a Monday though, as limited service on Sunday, and no service on Tuesday as it’s Bastille Day.

Back from a rather hot afternoon stroll. Not complaining. Top end of Port Nature. Melrose is being made ready. Asked the owner when though? After a Gallic shrug or two, she reckoned some time in July, when they let her. There are now two icecream shops open near Waikiki. You can surely only eat so much? Waikiki is open for drinks and evening meals. Must remember to go up a floor or two to see if the swimming pool is filled. Back to Port Ambonne. Pilouterie have changed their baby pink chairs to white. Bodega Bar swimming pool is filled and in use. Saunas are now open. Porn cinema closed. The Fetish Club, Clair Obscur, was advertising events for this Friday and Saturday. But, you have to wear a mask due to La Covid 19. Whether a gimp mask would suffice was not specified! Finally Hotel Eve still looks closed, along with Jardin de Babylon. Back, and time for a beer at Le Croq in half an hour.

Thank you. Hopefully the ban will lift soon for you all. One further update for camp site dwellers. By Le Croq, there used to be two telephone boxes, although we are going back 15 years or so. They were then repurposed, after becoming obsolete due to mobile phones, to storage cupboards. The left box is now a ladies loo, the right a gents loo. The doors have been changed so you’re not on display!

One other thing. Some bars, as you approach, the staff are trying to put masks on. A simple wave, and the masks are put away. It is .... failing?

Today’s stroll included the Swimming Pools. Waikiki pool is filled and open. Kama Sutra pool, at the sea end of PN is filled but not yet open. My guess would be that it will open this weekend as the beds are laid out, and they are putting the parasols in. On the camping, Allé Mer, that at the start had just eleven caravans on it now has 11 occupancies in the statics for rent, 53 caravans/camper vans/tents, and 2 occupancies in the super expensive Pearl Cottages. Things are on the up.

We arrived this afternoon after the usual stress free drive down the A75. Our usual hotel had a thorough covid regime in place although the days of the fab breakfast has been sidelined.

Arriving in the village we had expected a huge queue at the office where we had to collect our residents passes. However despite only one member of staff on duty the whole process only took a couple of minutes longer than usual.

Inside the village it would appear to be business as usual not a mask to be seen.

Early days but it’s great to be back in the land of dreams.

Repost about barbers and waxing (épilation), from another thread, just to help anyone who arrives here without having their regular beauty treatment in the UK. There is one in Hélio, two shops, one for hair, one for waxing. Just about next to Gymnos. Called La Garçonnière. Appointments phone 04 34 53 12 86. Extensive range of treatments available, the waxing starting at €8 going up to €105!

Is tomorrow due to be the announcement about air bridges? Have to admit to being a bit confused about the latest travel guidance from England to France ( not including Leicester, Scotchland, Whales, and Ireland, North and Republic) .

Two things at the sea end of PN. The disabled ramp has now been concreted, and it looks ready for some landscaping. To our knowledge there is at least one wheelchair user on here that goes to the Village, so that may make life a little easier. And Horizon is getting ready to open. Sun beds are being cleaned, coverings checked, that sort of thing. No idea on a date yet.

Yeah, supposedly going to be an update saying France is among a group of countries we can now visit without having to quarantine on return. Rumours are it will start from 6th July, which will be perfect for us!!

Any idea what the situation is regarding the use of shower blocks on the campsite? Are they still in use, if so what are the restrictions?

Also are the pitches on Allee Mer distanced or occupied next to each other?

Thanks.

The shower blocks are nearly all open. If there are partitions, then there appear to be no restrictions. Some blocks are closed, but this is a normal thing. For instance the block behind us is closed for showers, but it is never open till mid July, so no change. The sinks, for either personal washing, or crockery cleaning, are partly blocked off, so one open, one closed etc. There are no restrictions on the camping sites. They are all available. Hope that helps?

Thanks for your reply, yes that does help.

We are thinking of going in August, was a bit worried about standing next to people at sinks etc. but if they are distanced will be ok. At first were worried about being on a pitch next to someone, but then thought they are big enough to distance ourselves anyway, so will be ok

If you are worried about distancing, your journey to the cap alone will have little to no distancing between individuals. Probably best to skip this year if you are that worried.

Forgot to mention that some of the facilities have a one way system in place as well as the spacing. Getting a beer at Le Croq is a little on the complicated side. Queue to pay in the first one way system, then back into the road, and round the corner to pick the beer up. Drink beer, leave via separate exit!

As Fab Swingers is La Covid-19 compliant, I can state, here and now, that Pig Beach is empty, and nothing is happening. In other news, a porcine figure has just flown over my head.
