Why stay here ...

This beautiful site on the banks of the River Creuse is a spacious, natural haven with a convivial atmosphere and lots for active couples and families to enjoy. The site is peaceful in low season, getting livelier in the summer with entertainment arranged for all ages, a lovely swimming pool complex and brand new, well equipped gym.

The area has lots to enjoy, from the town of La Roche Posay, which has a casino, thermal spa and a range of bars and restaurants, to the nearby Brenne Natural Park, home to a variety of flora and fauna. A free shuttle service runs from the site to the town, and keen golfers receive a 20% discount at the local course.

Good site overall, enjoyable stay.

We spent 13 nights on the site at the end of July and in to early August. The site is very well kept. Reception staff were really helpful and knowledgeable, speaking brilliant English. Showers, pool etc are very clean. Our pitch was 129 and it was about as far as you can get away from the pool and toilets. It wasn't miles but became a bit of a drag towards the end of the stay - especially if you forgot something! The pitches were really well divided with mature hedges and this was great. There are small lanes off a main loop road that have about 8 pitches. There was limited shade in our lane and because of the heatwave it was very very hot with no escape. The pool was very busy during the heatwave and when it had cooled down the outside pool which was not heated tended to very quiet whilst the covered, heated pool was too busy. The river beach is about a 10 minute drive and is great fun - really nice to swim in with free parking and life guards. This seems to be well used by locals and we preferred it. The area is beautiful. It is very quiet and so not like the more traditional holiday spots where you get the night markets etc... Much more very old history etc... Our stay was made by the other people around camping/caravanning around us. By a big majority the others families were Dutch. Probably at the peak there were 6 British campers/caravaners - not a problem for us but we have never encountered this to this extent. We had a great time and our children attended the kids club each day and loved it - they were the only English speaking kids but were really included. Overall, a really nice site. We will look at a similar type of site by a river but perhaps in a more traditional holiday area for the future.

La Roche Posay

Spent four nights here mid July, very nice site good size pitches and well bordered. Had a slight issue with the gas bottle and the owner John who speaks excellent English took me to the garden centre and sorted out a conversion pipe.The facilities were clean and plenty of hot water. No shop on site but only a ten minute walk to the Supermarket and garden centre

Super site

Lovely site which we stopped at for 3 nights early in June '15 on our way down south & again for 2 nights on our way back. The owners John, who speaks excellent English, along with his English wife are extremely pleasant & helpful. Pitches are very generous, well kept with many being enclosed by hedges which we like. Very quiet in June & we were able to have our choice of pitch on both occasions. There is a small bar with limited takeaway in June, excellent swimming pools both open & under cover. Toilets are supplied with paper and the wash facilities are a good size with plenty of hot water & were kept clean. You are able to order fresh bread & croissants for collection in the morning which we appreciated. Would highly recommend the site and we will certainly stop there again.
