Why stay here ...

Set in the Forêt d’Orient Regional Park and 100m from a large lake, this site is good for family stays and as a stopover when travelling south. The facilities are well-maintained, and there’s a good pizza restaurant opposite the site entrance.

Children will enjoy the pool complex with its paddling area and slides and evening entertainment is put on during high season. There’s also a sailing school on the lake, and pedaloes and kayaks are available for use.

The area is perfect for keen walkers and cyclists, with many routes traversing the park. Troyes is nearby and has an impressive, Gothic-style cathedral with fine stained glass windows and exterior carvings, and some intriguing museums.

Excellent stop over site in champagne area

This was the first site on a 3 week tour. It is approx 400km from Zeebrugge. Site is well located close to Lake resort which is beutiful with excellent facilities which are well used by locals. The lake is a few minutes walk away. Pitches are good size and excellent value. Worth noting there is a new Leclerc supermarket just after you leave the motorway which is going to have a fuel staion added in a few weeks time. There is a small village with bakery etc about 1 Km away. There is a nice restaurant with lake views just across from site entrance which is good value. On good idea is they do not allow footwear in shower area and have shelves at entrance for your shoes. Would be happy to return.

Great site for stop over or longer stay

This was the 3rd time we stayed here previously were stopovers and decided we would like to stay longer .The stay coincided with the heatwave.The pitch that was reserved for us was large at 156m2 offering good shade .The facilities were kept clean.The onsite shop was well stocked with essentials.Few minutes walk to the lake where there are snack bars and water activities.Good access from A26 .We hope to return next year.

Excellent site

This has to be one of the best sites we have ever stayed at. The pitches are large and well laid out. The facilities are definitely the best we have ever encountered. The on site shop has essentials and of course you can order croissants and bread daily. The on-site restaurant does good takeaways as well as dining in. The location beside the Lac d'Orient is lovely and there is a nice lakeside beach. The pool and children's play areas looked good.

STOPOVERS AUGUST 2018

We used this site as a stopover both on our outward & return journeys; there are two motorway junctions 20 minutes or so from the site. The staff were very welcoming and English is spoken if needed. Pitches seemed generally of good size and most have shade; the site facilities are good - excellent sanitary block but the pool area seemed small and always crowded. We did not use the restaurant but chose to eat off site in one of the food outlets along the side of the lake. It's worth pointing out, certainly at weekends, that the lake is very popular and some patience is needed to get to the site entrance getting through the crowds and many cars. I would imagine for families with smaller children this site would be ideal; there is the 'Nigloland' theme park nearby but we felt it was too busy for us in terms of a longer stay. Having said that, in the evenings we were there, things quietened down around 11pm. There is a 24/24 filling station in Lusigny sur Barse nearby which we found useful.

OK for one night...

If you have a family this site I guess would be great but for us (retired couple) it is only worthy of a 1 night stop over which is what we used it for en route from Annecy to Calais. Good motorway access. I found the site cramped and lacking in any sort of privacy whilst on pitch. The picture of the well stocked shop on the CC web site is a bit(very!) misleading as when we visited the shelves were poorly stocked. The pool looked nice and there seems to be loads for kids to do on site. We didnt try the bar or to buy any meals on site so cant really comment on those. The sanitary blocks were absolutely spotlessly clean. Access to the nearby lake is excellent. We would only use it again for a stopover but can't say we would want to spend more than one or two at the most nights here.
