We stayed for three nights in September 23. On arrival the reception was great and we were given a large pitch overlooking the woods. The facilities were clean and plentiful. We were there out of season so the bar area was closed. There is a restaurant in the village which opened in the evening and was delightful. There is a shop in the village as well. The lake on site is lovely, we sat one evening in the late September sun with a gin and tonic and looked out over beautiful French countryside. Well worth a visit.
A beautiful🤩, peaceful site set in the lower Ardennes - well placed for exploring the area or simply sitting and chilling out. The site is owned and managed by Petrie and Tony who give an excellent smiling reception and assistance from the moment you arrive. They simply cannot do enough for you! The site is very quiet and tranquil. It is very well tended with green hedges creating privacy between spacious pitches. The overall environment is very tidy. The 2 chemical points were probably the best I have encountered! We didn’t use sanitary block or showers as we had those facilities on own pitch! But they looked well kept and clean. I would suggest the private, on pitch facilities, may be a bit chilly in cooler weather! There are 2 playgrounds for children along with a boules pit. The outside lake water swimming 👙🩳 pool looks inviting but may be cold in early season! The onsite pizzeria 🍕and friterie 🍟are both very good - offering more than just pizza or chips! There is a good ice cream 🍦stock - used almost daily during our stay! The little onsite shop caters for necessities and also offers (very good) bakery items to order daily. La Samaritaine is also part of a well designed and informative App (for the business that controls a number of sites overall) with lots of info and where bakery, pizza, friterie items can be ordered too. You can sit back and listen to the birds at dusk with a babbling stream in background creating further atmosphere. There is a proliferation of wildlife in the area, teeming with cuckoos, dragon flies, birds, insects…… The Beaver trail walk (the shorter of 3 from sites) takes in all of the wild life on offer.
We stayed here for 5 nights in mid-August and enjoyed the site. Good size pitch, takeaway on site made good burger and fish and chips and you could order pizza too - these proved good value for money as were quite large and my family thought they were delicious! There are a lot of children on site which wasn't overly noisy, but maybe not the site for you if you are looking for peace and quiet. Facilities were good. Toilets and showers clean, but think a large mat going into the toilets would've stopped mess from dirty shoes being trodden in, and it was very dry when we were there too, would've been worse if it had rained. We managed to get a shady spot which kept the heat off as we had a couple of 30 deg C days. Staff were helpful and it was very well set up, can definitely recommend. Good base for visiting WW1 forts, etc around Verdun and popping into Belgium.
This was our first stop as part of a 3 week touring holiday. Stayed 2 nights. A quiet site with very friendly staff. The local village is VERY quiet and has one small supermarket, one restaurant and one bar. We would reccomend going to Vouziers first as it has good shops and supermarkets and easy parking. Market day was Saturday morning and worth a visit. There is a nice friendly takeaway on site and you are encouraged to eat your meal around the various tables laid out at reception. There is swimming in lake adjacent to site. Pitch was fine our was elongated and in drive on drive off layout. Would go back to this site. Andy
Quiet and relaxing site, owners are very helpful including speaking to local vet on our behalf as our French was not good enough to explain our dog needs. The bread delivered to site was one of the best we ever eaten, in it self that was worth it. Pitches are good size and not over regimented. Good and clean facilities, wifi was free and effective. The only downside was we suffered with mosquitos and meant we had to curtail sitting outside in the evening. If travelling from Calais then can use D925 via Vouziers, quickest route in & out. If heading to/from South/East do not use the Sat Nav as roads are tight. Go via Stenay & Verdun to/from Autoroute
