We stayed here for 11 days in July 2018. Weather was fantastic the whole time and the area is a wonderful area to explore by car / bike / on foot depending on distance. There are lots of lovely towns and villages especially those on the Alsace wine route. Colmar old town is a good place to visit with lots of eating places to choose from as was Strasbourg. Germany's Black Forest is within easy reach and well worth a visit. We were welcomed at the site reception and shown our pitch which actually turned out to be one of the better ones but was still well overgrown and under large trees so the van and car got filthy from the tree sap. I pitied those on the pitches that looked worse than ours of which there were many. The toilet blocks were cleaned in the mornings although they could have been cleaned more thoroughly to be honest. The showers were hot and you needed to press the button often to keep the flow of water going. Early in our stay, a high number of the men's toilets were broken and by the end of our stay there were still a number not operating fully. There was no dedicated water or waste water points. Water had to be taken from the taps in the laundry sinks, grey water tipped in the hedges not what many will be used to. The bar / restaurant was basic and a bit overpriced for what you were getting. We didn't use the pool but it looked well used by families so don't imagine there were any huge issues on that front. All in a great holiday that would have been better had the site been better. It is a bit disappointing that we put our trust and our holiday money in sites based upon what has supposedly been inspected prior to being added to the overseas sites brochure. I personally would not recommend this site but the area is great.....
