This site is probably as described by the CC, it is peaceful and good for families and couples alike. Do follow the directions given by the club and not a sat nav as I believe it will take you across a metal encased bridge which only allows a max width of 2m each way! It's fine if you have dropped off your caravan and are just popping to Lidl as it's the quickest route.
The site is level and pretty shaded due to the trees. It is a little tight once through the barrier for larger outfits but as long as you take care there isn't an issue. As with most foreign sites a motor mover is a must but we also made a point of telling reception on arrival that we had an 8 meter caravan thus we were given a good sized pitch. There are different sized pitches for tents/motor homes etc. Most of the pitches have a bit of a view of the Loire even when you are not next to it. The site has toilets with toilet roll and the showers are mixed but separate cubicles and cubicle washbasins. There are also a couple of hairdryers fixed within the shower block. The site has washing machines at 4 euros and a tumble dryer. there is good washing up facilities too. The pool has a few sun loungers scattered about and there is also a toddler pool. For the children there is a bouncy castle and two trampolines with safely nets. There is a small restaurant on site together with a bar, we tried the bar but did not eat so cannot comment on it's quality. They have a few vendors come onto the site a couple of evenings a week selling food and wine.
The site has direct access to a cycle path through a coded gate and it is a 2 minute walk to Montsoreau which has a few bistro's, bakers and a 'spar' type shop for essentials. There are a few winery's offering wine tasting within walking distance. The larger town of Saumur is about 10 mins in the car. Park for free besides the river or pay & display in the town. The Lidl supermarket is also in Saumur on the other side of the river to the main town and there is a le Clerc's hypermarket too.
A nice site that was very similar to CC back home. We would return to this site if returning to the area.
