Le Château des Marais

We used this site on the way South and on the way home. A fairly large site with a holiday camp style feel, mainly a British contingent with the Ducth obviously! Nice pools but very busy, good play area for children with bouncy castle, swings etc, good looking resuturant and bar, with a pizza restaurant which we used however the service was pretty much slow and hopeless in the end we just walked out coundnt wait for the desert. Toilet facilities are ok and reasonably clean for the the amount of people on site however they only seemed to be cleaned once a day, so you probably get the picture. Pitches are a good size and not to dusty. Wouldn't want to spend to long here, as other have said its a little Britain, however good for a stop over for a day or two.
A convenient site for a three day stopover in a good location to get a taste of the area. Pitches are level but sandy and little grass cover although we were there at the end of the season. Our allocated pitch was unavailable on arrival (previous occupants still there) which was disappointing as we could not be next to our friends who had paid a supplement for a pitch adjoining ours (they had booked independently). We were offered a choice of two pitches neither of which were easy to access with our motor home and was really dark under trees as well as being a distance from where we should have been. Eventually, after another trip to reception and having expressed our disappointment and frustration (there was no understanding that the people were still on our allocated pitch and there was no interest in pursuing that) we moved to another pitch nearer to where we should have been. The shop was good and well stocked, take away was adequate, pool area enjoyed by all. However, we wouldn't go back.
This was our third stay at this site, but the first time in our own caravan and we think its a great site! Ideally located for exploring the Chateau's of the Loire valley, with a great pool complex and a really nice relaxed feel to it. We found everyone to be friendly and helpful and whenever we needed it, they pointed us in the right direction, so all in all, we had a great stay at the Chateau des Marais and we'll definitely be back again!
