Why stay here ...

This established site is set in a park with views over the château and a small lake. It’s well-maintained, with grassy pitches and a friendly atmosphere. Although it offers entertainment and facilities for families, it’s a relaxing place to escape to and enjoy the natural scenery and local wildlife in the heart of rural France.

The restaurant, housed in one of the estate’s restored outbuildings, serves excellent cuisine, while the pool complex and lake provide opportunities to swim and canoe.

The medieval town of Boussac is a short walk from the site and has a range of amenities. A 30km drive takes visitors to Montluçon, a sizeable town which is dominated by its 15th century château and home to some fine townhouses and pretty public gardens.

What a gem !!!

What a gem. My wife and I have just returned from 2 weeks at this delightful site. For couples this must be one of the best sites for a relaxed and peaceful holiday. The facilities and site in general are first class & spotless and the staff were always attentive without being over bearing. The weather whilst we were there was not typical, but everywhere seems to have suffered from unreliable weather. We had long hot spells which usually ended in a thunderstorm. I also enjoyed the fishing which will suit the casual fisherman. 9 x double figure carp (best 17lb) in 4 short trips - I found early morning best but also caught during the heat of the day, but be warned there is little shade and it can get hot. All in all a very nice holiday and we will return. CliveNMargaret

Fantastic Poinsouze

We arrived in early July and stayed for six nights. The site was very quite which surprised us, because everything about Le Chateau de Poinsouze we thought was fabulous! The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, the pitch was enormous (leveling blocks required) with uninterrupted views over the lake. The shower/WC/Laundry facilities were all spotless and the swimming pool was never crowded. The local area is very rural with some lovely little villages that are well worth exploring. All in all great location for some R&R.

A beautiful and peaceful site

We stayed here in early July and the site was still very quiet. We had a lovely pitch overlooking the lake - very big although we needed levelling blocks. Views and wildlife amazing. The toilet facilities are very good and clean, the shop well stocked and we had a nice meal in the restaurant. The staff are very friendly and helpful particularly when we needed to visit the gendarmerie to report damage to our caravan on the motorway. We would never have managed on our own without Monsieur accompanying us! We would love to return here.

Wonderful in May early June

We stayed here for 3 weeks in May/June. The site was lovely and quiet with only about ten vans pitched at any one time. We wanted peace and quiet and we certainly got it. We were sited on the largest pitch 105 at the far side of the lake, with our own electricity. water and toilet waste emptying facility. There are pedalo's and canoes for hire on the lake and a swimming pool, which unfortunately only opened when we were about to leave. Mme speaks fluent English but encourages you to speak French and we learned a few new choice phrases. There are a number of Chateaux to visit and Boussac, which is only 3km away is worth spending time visiting. Unfortunately the guide does not speak English, but we managed with the little French we understand. There is a lovely Carrefour in Boussac, which also sells fuel 14/7, we went to larger supermarkets further afield, but found this one far superior. The Thursday market in Boussac is a must, with everything you may need. There are also a number of Brocante outlets in the area where you can spend time browsing. This is not a site for families we don't think, but if you want peace and quiet, at this time of year it has it in spades.

Peaceful surroundings

We stayed here en route to Switzerland. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the site was very pretty and the facilities were excellent with water, electricity, and drainage for both grey and black water on the pitch. Most pitches seemed to be slightly sloping when blocks might be necessary. We were there in May when there were only three or four other caravans on site. We had dinner in the restaurant which, unfortunately, was very disappointing. For a stopover it is rather a long way from the main road but is ideal if you want a very quiet holiday in rural France.
