We had read a lot of the reviews and they are, in all fairness, correct.

The 'welcome' is a good as has been reported and the owners, Stu and Syb, have a good local knowledge that they are happy to share with you.

There are various 'nights' organised such as a Pizza Night, a proper sit down meal night etc and these go a long way in helping people to share experiences and to make suggestions to each other on places to visit.

The Loire valley is a good place to base yourself if you want to visit Châteaux

The Tank Museum at Samuer is worth a visit. It is every bit as good as Bovingdon in the UK and has the benefit of having exhibit labels in three languages: Some British museums could learn a lot from their example

It is nice to see some of the names from UKCS cropping up in the visitors book

The showers and WCs were clean and tidy and there was always a proper supply of hot water

There is an above ground type swimming pool and that should be good fun during the Summer months.

There's some interesting 'wild life' in the area and it's worth taking a very powerful torch to spot the animals watching you from the far end of the fields at night. If you are lucky, you should be rewarded with some splendid Deer watching.

The owls are great fun and there are both Barn Owls and Tawny Owls around. As you drive to Le Chant you will often see Buzzards sitting on fence posts on the field margins. We heard a woodpecker that was not one the UK ones, a totally different call to our native species, but did not get a sighting so we were unable to identify it. It should be a good area for Nightjars but September is too late in the year for them as they would have started their migration by now.

I have always found looking at the number of repeat bookings is a pretty reliable way of judging whether or not a site is worth visiting. On this basis, Le Chant must be up there amongst the top 10

I have visited this site on 2 occasions, In 2010 by myself and this year with my family. The welcome received is fantastic, with refreshments on arrival. The facilities are excellent with clean showers and toilets and excellent splash pool to cool down in. There is a very peaceful feel to the site and the no noise after 11pm rule is followed by everyone. The different food nights on offer in the barn are excellent and prove value for money, this is an excellent way to socialise. The children's play equipment in the centre of the field/garden kept our 8 & 10 year old happy for the duration of the stay and they made many friends. We have again booked for summer 2012 and are already counting the days.

We stayed at this site because we wanted to visit chateaux and gardens in the Loire valley. It was an excellent choice. It is a small quiet site with a really rural French feel but with all the comforts of home. The owners, Stu and Syb, were really welcoming and went out of their way to help us get set up, they have a good website where you can put in orders for food packs. The site provides electricity and we were able to hire a fridge for the tent. The toilet/shower block was always clean with plenty of hot water, there is also a kitchen for visitors use with plenty of utensils so you don't even need to cart everything from home. There is a play area for children and good meals are provided two or three times a week and a daily bread delivery. Nearby Mouliherne and Vernantes provide good shops. We would definitely recommend this excellent camp site - one of its recommendations is that people return to it year after year.

This was our third visit to Le Chant and I can only say that the place just gets better every year. Stu and Syb are the perfect hosts - hosts almost seems to be too impersonal since we have come to regard them as friends in the relatively short time that we have known them. From the welcome with a cuppa from Syb to the reluctant farewell two weeks later, we had a wonderful time.

This year perhaps more than on our previous two visits, we spent a great deal of time on the campsite during the day just relaxing and enjoying the priceless peace and quiet. We also spent many lovely evenings in the barn enjoying meals with our fellow campers some of whom we had met before on our visits.

There are plenty of places to visit in the area, places to suit all tastes and age groups - the list seems endless but it is the site, the owners and the friendliness of Le Chant that has drawn us back each year and will do for many more to come I am sure.

I am proud to finally be able to call myself one of the 'Boomerang Gang' - one of many who return year after year to this perfect little gem in the Loire valley.

Our first time camping and we went purely by the recommendations on here. We chose well!

We found this to be a fab site with friendly owners and a fab location. Our two boys loved the freedom on the site and felt very safe.

Only possible downsides, the pool was too cold to be able to enjoy it properly and the washrooms tended to get quite muddy, despite regular cleaning.

The camp kitchen was a real bonus as was the shared fridge.

We really enjoyed our stay despite it raining heavily for probably half of our 2 week stay.

We looked at loads of sites and decided on this because of the reviews and we were not disappointed. For us the main plus point was the fact that our two kids (under 5yrs) were perfectly safe playing in the central play frame area with the other kids and as its a small site we were never worried for their safety - so it allowed us to relax more than otherwise.

The pitches are all a decent size, the campers kitchen is an excellent idea, the pool is ok but probably not ideal for our kids as it was deep for toddlers and they needed to climb in. This was not so much of a concern as the weather was bad so they did not want to go in it much. The other older kids loved it though.

The food cooked on site varied from chilli, lasagne, paella. We only had the paella but many other campers ate on-site and all said the food was good. Most attractions are a half hour or more drive but this is probably to be expected as France is so vast. What we enjoyed the most was going to a local lake/beach and having picnics and visiting one of the local markets.

We went to Puy Du Fou on one day (around 1. 5 hours) and this was excellent.

Stu and Syb are very nice and helpful also.

I would say there were only two small issues we had. Our pitch was n the corner of the site so is nearest to the covered dining central area, the main through fare for toilets, and next to the inwards track to the site. This meant that it was ocassionally a little noisy at night times as we could hear people up chatting - this was more the case the first week with some guests that were staying. Whilst normally this would not have been an issue, we have kids of 3 and 4 so they found it hard to sleep and so we sometimes had tired kids during the day as they had not slept. We did end up having to ask some people to just try and keep it a bit quiet one evening. Maybe if other guests have small kids it might be well to ask to be situated away from the central eating area to avoid this?

Also, I think it would be great if Stu and Syb could just ask guests to keep some of the older kids quiet after a reasonable time. As parents were having a good time drinking and chatting in the central eating area, some of the older kids were still running around yelling and playing loudly well after 9. 30pm and sometimes past 10pm. As its such a small site some of the younger kids were kept awake by this and us, and some of the other parents with smaller kids had the same issue and had to ask the kids to be quiet (so we knew it was not us being fussy)- I suppose we just wished the parents would have been supervising them a bit more but I know that people are on holiday so want to relax. It just became and issue for us when our kids were still awake at 10. 30pm and wanting to go out and play but completely exhausted.

The toilets were kept as clean as possible considering the muddy weather. I wish they were not unisex and that they could have a separate ladies loo as they did have that mens toilet smell (especially when lots of boys were on site)

Other than these minor things - we loved this site, and thought the owners had thought of lots of things to make campers stay relaxing and peaceful. We would love to return and really enjoyed our stay.
