Why stay here ...

Situated just outside the city of Nancy and close to the Lorraine Natural Park, Le Brabois is a friendly site popular for overnight stops. The welcoming reception staff, who speak some English, are attentive and helpful.

Most of the pitches, which are of a good size, have some shade and hardstanding is available. The small shop sells eggs and other produce that is grown onsite, and a snack bar and takeaway are open in peak season.

The main attraction is nearby Nancy, which can be reached easily by the bus that stops 100m from the site entrance. There are also some lovely walking and cycling routes in the forested area around the site.

Good for one night but avoid the acorn trees in september

Tired campsite but clean. I'd avoid staying there during acorn season. I have a small metal roof camper van and I spent the night on the allocated pitch being kept awake by falling acorns. There are 16 small impact dents on the roof and two on the bonnet from said acorns. My roof gutters and windscreen gutters were full of acorns the next morning. Other people were complaining of the acorns too. I also had problems with my domestic kettle tripping out the pitch electrics three times. This was only used with internal LED lights and the fridge. It wouldn't be possible to have any heating on if you wanted to boil the kettle. Can't comment on anything else as this was a 1 night stop over (fortunately ).

I Don't Know Nancy but This Is More Of A Transit site

Used as a stop-over on both inward and outward journey to Venice. As with others we got the 'special' pitch and paid £22 which is OTT for what you get. Pitch was decent size, did have water and waste disposal on pitch but it did slope upwards and so the drainage pipe was trying to go uphill on our pitch and so pointless! Lovely staff but little English spoken if you are linguistically challenged! Bar/cafe etc on site and lots of recycling. Supermarket and cheap fuel 2 miles away. Can't agree more with the comment about the chemical waste disposal - it is part of a unit where drinking water is dispensed and that is unforgivable! Can't believe the Club has recommended this site if only for this reason! We were at the bottom of the site from this 'facility' and so our waste went into one of the toilet blocks!

Bit of a shame

Its a shame this campsite has not had more TLC, the pitches are poor and the facilites are neglected. It is set in a great location with good public transport very close and a supermarket within 2km. We were made to book a super pitch at extra cost due to the size of our outfit, this turned out to be an overgrown grassed area at the edge of the site which had water close by and 15amp electrics. As it rained heavily on our first day we were in danger of getting stuck so agreed to move to a hardstanding pitch in the centre of the park which was much better but did not have water and only 6amp electic - neither of which we minded and would happily have booked this in the first place had we been allowed (also saving some money). This is an expensive camp site which could be well worth visiting but at the moment it is extremely poor value for money and very neglected.

Good short stay

We booked at le Brabois for 6 nights but decided to leave early after 5. Whilst the site was OK, if was a bit tired and needed TLC. The staff were generally friendly and helpful and the site is well located for getting to and from Nancy and other towns - Strasbourg approx 1hour. The bus service to Nancy is very good and takes you directly to the central square. The restaurant on site is however very disappointing. The pitches are good size although for some inexplicable reason, we were put under the trees - although there were plenty of spaces available elsewhere. Need to use steel pegs to secure the awning. The drinking water point is located in a small unit which also houses the chemical disposal point. The drinking water tap is approx 2 - 3 feet from the Elsan disposal flap and also next to the rinsing tap. - Plenty of opportunity for cross contamination and splashing. Not the most hygienic system and not what I would expect from a Caravan Club approved site. If I decide to return to Nancy, I would probably use the site again but would use the on board facilities.
