Why stay here ...

This campsite is set on the banks of the river with lovely views and direct cycle paths along the Loire. A peaceful small and friendly site in one of the most beautiful areas of the Unesco classed “Loire Valley”. 

Clement, the enthusiastic and friendly owner, speaks excellent English and enjoys introducing his campers to the local wines and gastronomy with organised wine tasting and visits, therefore the campsite is closed to arrivals until 14.00 to allow customers on site to enjoy a peaceful lunch break à la francaise.

This campsite is great for couples, although children are welcome, adults are the focus of this campsite. 

There is a high amount of British campers on site. Clement is very happy to introduce everyone to the French way of life in this happy and popular campsite.

The pitches are flat and grassy with some situated along the riverbank and others central in this well kept site. A new dog shower has been installed, so now dogs can stay clean and fresh.

In high season, take a boat trip from beside the site and sail down to the beautiful Saumur with its château, wine caves and Cadre Noir.

Great location right on the banks of the Loire

L'isle Verte
Very interesting site, located on the banks of the Loire just outside the town of Montsereau. A member of the C’est Si Bon group of sites, it is in many ways a little difficult to complete a review on the site. Let me qualify that by saying there was absolutely nothing wrong with the site or the facilities or it’s location. Unfortunately our allocated pitch was just over the road from the swimming pool complex which was a little noisy and added to that there was a bouncy castle opposite, where the pumps were running from 10 am till almost 7 pm with a continual whining noise. However, despite this we spent four lovely days here. It was less than a 10 minute walk into the village, where there were two bars, a restaurant, patisserie, and a small convenience store. On site, there was a bar restaurant and you could order bread for delivery the following day, but we chose to walk up into town. Staff were friendly English is spoken, all the site facilities were clean, tidy and well maintained. Good location with plenty of walks and cycle trails leading in both directions from the site. Definitely worth a visit, and we would come back again sometime if we visit this area again. There is a mention of the metal bridge over the Loire at Montsereau - It is manageable with care - We arrived and departed over the bridge without any issues.

Still Little Britain

L'isle Verte
Good area for exploring local chateaux, cycling etc, loads to see. You need to take your own bikes as nowhere nearby to hire them. Reception were always busy, but tried their best .Lovely boulangerie in the village within a couple of minutes' walk, plus other little shops, bars, cafes etc. Good Sunday market, and 2nd Sunday of the month there is a large flea market in Montsereau. It was very hot in June when we were there, so couldn't do much sightseeing beyond midday. As per a previous review, there was a high proportion of British 'vans here, including a specialist caravan rally. Depends on whether or not that would bother you. There were issues with unreliable electricity supply voltage when people started to cook in the evenings and then switch on their Air Con. People around us were having to reset their power at the posts. Don't try to use domestic-style appliances, and electric bbqs are banned. We had a private sanitaire, which meant a bigger pitch and no queueing. Be prepared to clean it yourself at the end of stay - otherwise it's 70 euros. One thing we liked was that the site enforced the 'no arrivals before 1400' rule so you all got a bit of peace and quiet. There is very little off-road waiting area, so usually a queue at 1400, but if you have booked then you'll be OK as the site was full every day we were there. Someone else has mentioned the enclosed steel bridge just west of Montsereau - do not let your sat nav take you that way!

Great site next to the Loire

L'isle Verte
Spent two nights here early September and unfortunately caught some rain so pitch very muddy - nothing anyone can do about that! We liked the location and found the access to the bike paths excellent. Cycled to Saumur and had lovely lunch before heading back and visiting the troglodyte caves. Fantastic and not to be missed. Restaurant very popular but we didn’t visit. Right on edge of pretty town and lovely castle.

No t the sort of site we like to many British vans/ caravans. Felt like a British enclave. Prefer a smaller site with more international. Location nice but nothing in village but nice if you cycle up to villages further away. Site staff friendly and good cleanliness.( toilet paper provided) if with ACSI don’t book over website as won’t get ACSI price but phone the. Dropped changer there. Would not go back.

Lovely Location

L'isle Verte
We stopped here just one night between main sites. The pitches were great, large, flat, and some shade. We also liked the location. Our only issue was the evening entertainment - a band - they were entertaining but did not finish until 23:20 - We felt this was late for a family campsite.
