Different

Chanteloup
Visited for 4 nights in late June on our way back to Calais. This is a nice site with a very relaxed atmosphere. We were given a pitch on a large field with a large tree in the centre. All pitches were around the outside increasing the impression of space. Water points were plentiful but the only grey water disposal point was by the motorhome service point - quite a distance with a full wastemaster! Can't disagree with the comments re the restaurant - they seem to have gone a bit overboard with the shabby-chic theme, however on the one occasion that we used it, our food was good. There are numerous deckchairs and shades dotted about the site, which add to the calming atmosphere. Facilities are 'rustic, but clean and acceptable. We would visit again.

Lovely location set around the château

Chanteloup
Centred around a large château and its many outbuildings the facilities are generally good located in some of the outbuildings in the old courtyard. tired. Pitches are generous in size set out around the lake and lawns that surround the château. There is a wooded area behind the Château with additional fully serviced pitches set amongst the trees together with a number of new glamping lodges. The courtyard to one side of the château and the main château building itself, house a small restaurant, reception, games room, tv room, bar and washing up facilities. Bread and croissants available every morning delivered by local boulengerie who sets up a stall on the lawn outside the château. The only downside was the restaurant which a number of other reviews have made reference to. We were disappointed with the quality of the food and the general appearance. Set in the wooded courtyard under a marquee, it was in need of a good clean to remove the tree debris from the roof and the table cloths need washing. The site has a very relaxed atmosphere about it and whilst we were there was not particularly busy which suited us. We only stayed for one night on this visit but will be back for a longer stay.

Pleasant , quiet and very spacious

Chanteloup
June 22 Really nice Castels sites. Great booking procedure with rapid response and check in excellent . Our pitch by the lake was excellent and more than big enough for car and large caravan . As units place around edge of field huge amount of space for sitting out and games for kids if appropriate. Website states lake side pitches all have water and electric , ours only had electric . Plenty of fish to catch in lake but beware baby cat fish with very sharp spines . Not sure fishing here is suitable for children . Chateau has very attractive lounge/games area .Has a bar we did not use .Have refrained from commenting on Restaurant but have responded to owners privately .Our neighbor on pitch who was in restaurant shared our views but said in the many prior years they visited it was excellent. A very pleasant place to stay to chill particularly on way south or north or if wanting to visit Le Mans . Big supermarket 15 to 20 mins away with fuel.Local village has baker and small shop ,we did not have time to try nor to visit the small bar /restaurant as it shuts on Mondays but as would use this as rest stop site again will be sure to give restaurant a try

July '19 - Great site

Chanteloup
Holidayed for a week at Chanteloup in July 2019 with a caravan. Initially we were allocated a pitch that was a bit far away from all the amenities but after a friendly discussion we were reallocated a pitch that was a bit more central. The pitches are grass and not particularly clearly defined but nonetheless we found it good and easy to get pitched onto. Other pitches looked similarly sized with all appearing to have reasonable access for large outfits. The weather was good which always helps, some may suggest it was too hot as we hit the peak temperatures in France at that time which peaked over 40C. The bar area was good with good service and a seating area both inside and outside, the outside area had a large TV screen. The restaurant and take away food had a decent menu and service again was good. The toilet / shower areas were clean and all had hot water at all times. The site had a market and a BBQ on two of the days we were there. The market was limited but all sellers had good products (no cheap rubbish).The BBQ had free wine and the BBQ was provided by the site, just bring your own food. It was around 10 miles to Le Mans which has some historical areas worthy of a visit and the light show onto the buildings around the old quarter of the city is worth staying around for until dusk. A visit to Le mans would not have been complete without a visit to the race track / museum. We only visited the museum (adjacent to the race track) which was a good two hours spent with many cars on exhibit. There were many large supermarkets to choose from in Le Mans, just take your pick really... We also golfed one day and whilst it was not a championship course, it was an interesting and enjoyable round at a reasonable price. All in, a very enjoyable stay and a site we would highly recommend.

One of the best Castels sites

Chanteloup
A return visit to this first class site. Everything about site is high quality. Pitches are arranged around the edges leaving central areas clear to enjoy. The owners are hands on and can be seen watering lovely plants from morning till night. Lovely terrace bar great garden swimming pool. Restaurant and shop. Nice toilets. If in Motor home ask for directions to Quayside free parking in Le Mans. Rural location but supermarkets in Le Mans. Bbq on Sat nights July August.
