Stayed one night as a stop over from the south. Site in full swing so very busy but seemed to cope. No idea on the area but will say the cleanliness of the showers was somewhat lacking.

A good stop over

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.

We used this site for a mid-way overnight stop on a long trip back to Calais. Helpful English speaking and friendly staff. Good sized and shady pitches. Good facilities (Pools, bikes, peddle-cars, takeaway etc) but not very peaceful.

A piece of England in France

This site has a great location as a transit en route to the South of France, and is nicely planned with large plots and an attractive swimming pool complex. The toilets and showers are OK, not great. And there are some fantastic chateaux to see nearby. But the site is almost entirely occupied by raucous English holidaymakers, so the atmosphere is not French at all. There are three British tour operators present on the site, and the only conversations you will hear (late into the night, and everywhere in the playground, shop, bar and restaurant) are in English. Definitely not for those who actually want a French holiday. By contrast, there is a large, pleasantly located municipal campsite within 200 metres, on the banks of the beautiful Loire river, that looks like a better and much cheaper proposition for few days stay.

Not for us.

a poor choice on our part. The noise level well into the night is just unacceptable. I am happy to stay on family friendly sites but do not expect shouting until midnight and beyond to go unchallenged. The facilities whilst good were very crowded and as adults there was little to no chance of enjoying the pool at anytime. The restaurant was okay as was the shop. A complete lack of hot water in our shower block on one morning, sporadic cleaning and an absolutely awful wifi means we certainly won't be returning, There are better spots to explore the Loire Valley from.
