Why stay here ...

With its lovely, family atmosphere, Saint-Émilionis ideal for families with younger children. Pedalos and kayaks are available for free use on the pretty fishing lake that borders the site, and the facilities are modern, with an excellent restaurant at which evening entertainment takes place in high season.

The friendly owners are keen to encourage guests to explore the local area and offer a free shuttle service into St Émilion, as well as organising excursions to nearby attractions.

There’s lots to do around the site too. St Émilion has many private wine cellars to visit and the underground church tour makes for an interesting afternoon. A free vineyard tour is available within walking distance of the site, and Bordeaux can be reached by train. Being set among vineyards, the site is also close to many scenic walking and cycling routes.

Lovely site in a great location for the Saint Emilion vineyards.

We spent three nights here in the middle of June and the site was a pleasant surprise located in the middle of the extensive Saint Emilion vineyards. Part of the Yelloh group we received a very warm welcome from the reception staff with lots of information what was available locally. There had been a torrential thunderstorm just before we arrived and our allocated serviced pitch was flooded, but there was no problem at all with us changing pitch. Pitches well laid out divided by hedges. Good toilet blocks with modern facilities and loads of hot water. Strangely the newer of the two blocks is located next to swimming pool complex which is well away from the main Caravan and Motorhome pitches. Communal BBQ’s one taken over by a rally group of ACSI motorhomers one vending who provided excellent ad hoc Bavarian entertainment. Great location especially to visit the old town of Saint Emilion where the site runs a free bus shuttle twice daily (bookable in advance at reception). The town is very much rustic France and has a plethora of shops extolling the virtues of the local red wine and there is no shortage of samples to try. However be aware prices are much higher than buying direct from the vineyard doors. Most of the vineyards do tours and tasting so there is no shortage of places to visit locally. We will certainly stay again if we are back in this area.

Good site

Stayed here for 8 nights brilliant facilities and very clean. Pitch sizes are good and level. This is a family site however personally I wouldn’t want to stay in July or August but the children would love it. Friendly staff and very helpful. Lovely walk around the lake. The restaurant serves excellent food at a reasonable price.

5 night stay September

Stayed here for 5 nights second week of September-2 adults no children. Site was easy to find, well equipped and well placed for visiting the surrounding area. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool area which we believe had been renovated this year. Bar, restaurant and shop were all good as were the other facilities. The historic St Emilion is a half hour walk on a back road through vineyards and is well worth the effort. It is very popular with many different nationalities present and there is a host of wine outlets as well as other shops and restaurants to choose from. We also visited Bordeaux (tip if you want to use the park and ride tram system you need to get to the car park early). Bordeaux again is well worth the visit and is quite a contrast as a big city compared to St Emilion. Staff at campsite friendly and very helpful. As we had passed high season entertainment was reduced but we enjoyed the free wine tasting from a local chateau by the lake on the Friday evening. All in all a good site and worth a visit.

Busy but well provided for in July!

This Yello Village site provides some very good facilities for caravaners but as with many large sites, becomes a little impersonal because of the size. The organisation themselves are about making money so beware - they charge for anything they are able to levy a fee on including the provision of wi-fi on the pitch. We also found that while the shower and toilet blocks were very good - they perhaps needed more thorough cleaning when busy!! However, the pitches were of a fair size and many offer shelter from the sun we experienced when there - a necessary comfort when the temperature is in excess of 30C-34C. Overall the site is of good quality for campers or caravaners and, there are also some statics and cabin accommodation there too. The town of St Emilion is a comfortable twenty five minute walk away (and certainly not 15 as described by another reviewer unless an athlete) and though a very busy place, it offers the red wine lover plenty of scope for choice. With 118 wine chateaux under the St Emilion banner, almost every field is a vineyard!! The underground church is certainly worth the money for a guided tour and the steep cobbled streets of the town also provide many restaurants; wine shops and local produce is also available.

Good Site

Very good site with its own small lake with canoes and pedalos that people can use (provided life jackets obligatory). Very friendly staff. Good shop, bar and restaurant. We had an entertainer on our first night who did an excellent mix of English and French songs and made it a special evening for everyone. Very good heated outdoor swimming pool. Very useful shuttle service into St Emilion. We got a lovely non-service pitch away from the lake overlooking a field. Unfortunately the water supply to our end of the site was out of action, so water was some distance away. Apart from the, good site.
