Why stay here ...

This peaceful site is situated in the south of the Ardennes and perfect for a short, relaxing stay. The level, grassy pitches are separated by neat hedges, and the site’s small size gives it a friendly feel.

Facilities are limited but well presented, with a snack bar/takeaway available over the summer months. There’s an entertainment programme for children in high season and the nearby lake is ideal for swimming and fishing.

The secluded setting means there are lots of good walking and cycling routes nearby, while key attractions are accessible by car. Verdun is an hour away and an interesting place to learn about the First World War. Reims can also be reached in a little over an hour and is worth the trip for Notre-Dame Cathedral and Tau Palace.

Good site can definitely recommend

We stayed here for 5 nights in mid-August and enjoyed the site. Good size pitch, takeaway on site made good burger and fish and chips and you could order pizza too - these proved good value for money as were quite large and my family thought they were delicious! There are a lot of children on site which wasn't overly noisy, but maybe not the site for you if you are looking for peace and quiet. Facilities were good. Toilets and showers clean, but think a large mat going into the toilets would've stopped mess from dirty shoes being trodden in, and it was very dry when we were there too, would've been worse if it had rained. We managed to get a shady spot which kept the heat off as we had a couple of 30 deg C days. Staff were helpful and it was very well set up, can definitely recommend. Good base for visiting WW1 forts, etc around Verdun and popping into Belgium.

Stopover at start of Motor Home July Holiday

This was our first stop as part of a 3 week touring holiday. Stayed 2 nights. A quiet site with very friendly staff. The local village is VERY quiet and has one small supermarket, one restaurant and one bar. We would reccomend going to Vouziers first as it has good shops and supermarkets and easy parking. Market day was Saturday morning and worth a visit. There is a nice friendly takeaway on site and you are encouraged to eat your meal around the various tables laid out at reception. There is swimming in lake adjacent to site. Pitch was fine our was elongated and in drive on drive off layout. Would go back to this site. Andy

Stay as part of our holiday

Quiet and relaxing site, owners are very helpful including speaking to local vet on our behalf as our French was not good enough to explain our dog needs. The bread delivered to site was one of the best we ever eaten, in it self that was worth it. Pitches are good size and not over regimented. Good and clean facilities, wifi was free and effective. The only downside was we suffered with mosquitos and meant we had to curtail sitting outside in the evening. If travelling from Calais then can use D925 via Vouziers, quickest route in & out. If heading to/from South/East do not use the Sat Nav as roads are tight. Go via Stenay & Verdun to/from Autoroute
