Excellant Site

Les Gorges du Chambon
We originally booked this site for a three night stop-over in June 2017 on our way to the Dordogne. The site is very spacious with the pitches being arranged in a circular manner around the facilities block. The pitches are a good size and offer some well needed shade. The site as a whole is clean and tidy. The pool is spacious with sufficient sun beds and is regularly cleaned. The stars of the show, however, are the staff. They are bright, cheerful and nothing is too much for them. While at this site, I was taken ill and needed hospital treatment. The staff couldn't have done more: calling the ambulances (yes, plural !), translating my symptoms, and looking after my wife while I was away. They even called my next site to explain that I was delayed ! I very much recommend this site.

Lovely Site

Les Gorges du Chambon
We were met with a warm welcome when we checked into this site and offered the upgrade to a larger pitch for 5 Euros per night which we took. The site is well layed out and all of the facilities are easy to get to. The toilets are cleaned between 7am and 9:30am which seems an odd time of the day to do it to me, but they are always clean and plenty of them. We did not eat at the restaurant, but the food smelt good. The site is an excellent base for exploring the area with Angouleme, La Rochefaucauld and Montbron not being far away. Montbron has a choice of 2 supermarkets, fuel and other services. The site is approx 3km off the main road and easy to get to. Unfortunately we did not see this site at it's best as it constantly rained for the 5 nights we were here. It is a lovely quiet site although this may change during the main holidays/high season. All of the staff were helpful and friendly, there is a shop selling the essentials, a bar, cycle hire and in the high season there are canoe tours I believe.

August 2016.

Les Gorges du Chambon
Had difficulty finding this site but don't let this put you off.Our visit was at the end of august and we had lovely weather.Site was nearly empty and our pitch was one on the outer edge of the circles so plenty of space though if busy pitches adjacent may create a hemmed in feeling. Near to French supermarkets and cheap fuel.

Les Gorges du Chambon
Stayed here before, found site easily. Fairly compact site but with plenty of open spaces for kids as well as good play area. Staff very friendly and helpful. Shop good. Facilities clean with plenty of hot water. Some pitches a big small but generally recommended as a site.

What a site!

Les Gorges du Chambon
From the moment we arrived we could not be anything but impressed, helpful friendly staff, super pitches and location. Great facilities, super hard working staff, special mention for the efforts of the restaurant staff! Plenty to do on site and close by, don't hesitate to ask the staff, their information folders are fantastic. Follow the directions from the club for the best arrival route. We will be back, to do more walks, canoe, play tennis and visit the nearby towns ..... for starters!
