We like Jouillat plage as well. The " french version of Ian Fleming" aka Bob the builder , is a brit & probably the nearest he's been to interpol is watching an old Maigret episode . His dog is nice though :lol:

I use the one at Genouillac and although we have cards I have never been asked for it & there is no barrier where you drive in & out. If it's your first time it may be prudent to take a piece of id with your address on it .
