superb location for many chateaux and for recreational easy cycling , all on off-road quiet routes suitable for trailers / children, and almost entirely flat so no great fitness required. Multiple "velo vert" routes pass through or nearby to Bracieux, right out the door of the site. You genuinely can do Chambord , Cheverny , Billesavin by bike easily, and Blois if you're keen. bloischambord.com gives you the routes. Site washblocks are the cleanest I have ever seen in france , and would pass muster at a flagship CMC uk site as well. And they have paper! Pitches are a little awkward with a large unit - trees are randomly distributed around the site - they are not sown in rows or edges or whatever, they've grown randomly over time. these can be almost in the middle of pitches. Our originally allocated pitch we could not get into with a twin-axle, due to a low tree branch. fortunately there were plenty of other free pitches we could move to. then we had a motorhome using the neighbouring pitch parked within 2m of our caravan, but they couldn't really go anywhere else on that pitch because of another tree. if they'd not been leaving next day I'd have asked them to move. As the site was more than half empty (3rd week of august) we asked reception to block that pitch for any future arrivals and they did at least do that. I therefore suspect it would feel cramped in the main mid-july:mid-august peak if all pitches were in use. great outside that peak. water: is a faff if you are in a caravan so be prepared. there's a motorhome service point right at the entrance so alright for those.. The washblocks, have no taps that are easy to fill a caravan barrel from - nothing with a threaded nozzle or a hose connector, and all are over basins of one sort or another. you need to bring a hosepipe with a large flexible funnel end that you can push or hold onto a tap (the taps are quite big) and a pipe that is long enough to reach barrel on floor whilst going round a large sink. There is ONE standpipe in one corner of the camping area but its very well hidden we only found it couple of days before we left. There are also no grey waste emptying points. I took mine to the site's perimeter hedge every night. given the supermodern wash block, these two points are baffling to me. many other french sites have a tap and drain per pitch. there was an all-night rave (9pm-9am) last weekend of august somewhere nearby, loud enough to keep awake most of night. nothing you could do. other than that, very peaceful! shops - bracieux has the basics and is walkable, but the village carrefour express is small and isn't up to much more than basics. Much better intermarche super in mont-pres-chambord. then there's a huge Auchan hyper on the S side of Blois in St Gervais La Foret that has everything. Go to the chocolate factory next door: they do tours, tasting, have gourmet chocolates for sale, and superb ice cream.
