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.

What a lovely place and the owners Stu and Syb are the most accommodating I have ever come across.

Every second night they cook food for anyone on the site site that wish to partake, this is of course chargeable but is excellent value for money.

Site facilities are good and cleaned often.

Plenty to do in surrounding area, markets on most days. We would say that the one at Samour on Saturdays was the best one we visited.

There are bicycles on site that you are welcome to borrow free of charge, and the surrounding roads are very peaceful you may only see about three cars an hour.

There is a small pool on site although not heated is still nice to cool off in the mid day heat.

There is a kitchen with cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle, again free for anyone who wishes to use it.

We will definitely be returning again. What a gem

At last we got here! What a find! Stu and Syb are such a welcoming couple, from the cuppa when we arrived to waving us off when we left 4 days later! We got to know everyone on the site, only 7 pitches were taken when we were there and it felt like a large family! The Pizza night was our first night which made us feel very welcome and we also enjoyed the meal night on Fridays, all round one big table with wine flowing and 4 courses all for n12 euros 50 per head! Loved the chickens wandering round, the 2 cats and of course Bracken the dog! Saumur was a lovely afternoon's visit and we were told the market on Saturday is wonderful. Lovely to just take off in the van and meander around the little villages with their lovely little churches. It was very hot when we were there and the splash pool was very welcome. The loos etc were kept clean, with soap and a hand towel which was changed daily. The 2 gites I was shown round were very well equipped and beautifully arranged. Lovely little wooden playground in the centre of the site for children. Will be back!

This is our 4th visit in 5 years to Le Chant d Oiseau, what else can we say. Anyone that has visited this site will understand why we keep returning. We had one week here and our first week in the Vendee at a Castels site. This visit mid two weeks of June. The weather could have been better, but we have no control over it? But when in paradise ‘everything is so good’

The 3 Gites have had makeovers, not that we were in one, but the owner let us have a look at them when they were empty. The meals were as good as ever, put on twice weekly, Monday & Friday, Pizza night on a Wednesday. All chargeable for those that wanted to indulge themselves.

Will we go back?

The answer is-
