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.

Thank you so much for your review. The restaurant was managed privately this year and the manager had trouble recruiting staff and keeping up the good quality that we expect at Chanteloup . They hope to do better for 2023. Thankyou.
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.

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
