Chez Sarrazin is a former farm now comprising 3.5 acres of gardens, lawns and wooded grounds and is surrounded by arable farming land, vineyards and fields of sunflowers. Our small, intimate, 6-pitch campsite is suitable for tents, small/medium caravans and small RVs. The 6 generously-sized pitches are in front of a mature oak wood which provides good afternoon shade. Access to the site is by a 400m hard-core track down a gentle slope of about 6 degrees.
The campsite is a tranquil setting (deer are sometimes seen walking through the site of an evening) but please note that you will hear trains on the line that is a kilometer away.
The whole campsite and swimming pool area is provided with free, high-speed Wifi. The alignment of the site allows for excellent satellite TV reception.
There is an in-ground, full-depth 12 x 6m swimming pool with Roman steps at one end. The pool is open between May and September from 9.30am to 8pm. Sun-loungers and umbrellas are provided. Children under 12 must be supervised in and around the pool by an adult. Outdoor activities such as football, swings, croquet, badminton, boules and table tennis are available in a grassy area.
Hot showers, sinks and toilets are provided in a modern block. A washing machine, iron and ironing board are provided for guests' use.
Well-behaved pets are permitted but are not allowed in the pool area and must be leashed at all times on the property.
