Reviewer: Jayne Neadley 5 reviews from this member

Well, today is a sad day as we are having to leave Le Chant d'Oiseau and make our way home. Sometimes you visit somewhere after reading reviews, get there and wonder if the reviewers had actually been talking about the same place. Not in this case - all expectations were lived up to! The welcome cuppa was greatly appreciated and Stu was on hand to give us novice caravanners advice on pitching up. We arrived on a Sunday so were in time for fouee. These are just too delicious and one is definitely not enough!

We went to three meal nights whilst we were here and each time the food was absolutely delicious - Syb is a VERY good cook! We also had pizzas - Stu had a record evening with 41 pizzas to cook, all having to be done one by one. These evenings are a great idea as you not only get fed well with no effort on your part, but you get together with everyone on the site in a relaxed atmosphere. We just loved these evenings and met some really lovely people. Fresh bread and a wide variety of delicious French pastries are delivered every morning so breakfast is easy too!

We had a caravan we didn't use the campers kitchen but it's a great asset to those in tents. We didn't have any children with us on this occasion but can see what a wonderful, safe environment it is to bring them to. The pitches are all round the edge of the site with the play area in the centre so that you can see your children easily. The site is secure with the gates shut at all times so there's no escape routes for them either which again means a more relaxed time for mum and dad!

The children here have loved the pool with shrieks of laughter coming from it. There are guidelines for the use, again to make it as safe as possible for all. Finally Syb's mum. I don't believe for one minute that she's 3006 although Stu is quite insistent! She's a lovely lady who enjoys a chat so when you come and stay please pop and see her - she's very easy to find as she sits outside their home enjoying the sunshine most of the day.

Would we recommend Le Chant d'Oiseau to friends, with or without children? Most definitely! Will we return sometime? Hopefully! If your want a wonderful little haven in the Loire then this is a 'must visit'!

Absolutely fantastic! Just returned from a fantastic 17 nights at Le Chant D Oiseau, where do I begin-best holiday to date yet in france. Upon arrival and first meeting Stu & Syb and the lovely Bracken a welcoming cuppa.

The campsite is lovely good size pitches means you never feel as if you encrouching on the person next door, the toilets always clean with soap and clean hand towel daily, you are encouraged to mop the shower when you finished helps stop as much mess and always ensures it is left clean for the next person and saves any accidents from excess water.

The campers kitchen is a brilliant idea although we didn't use it that often or to its full potential has mostly everything from a kettle to a stocked bookshelf, to a brush and the walls are filled with info on things to do in the area and Stu is always on hand to get directions or a postcode from the office. The pool is great and the outside undercover area for doing dishes is lovely. The recycling is very easy to get to grips with but when doing ours did notice the odd piece of something in the wrong place-easy mistake but a little thought to the person who then has to empty it would save a lot of work.

A great play area for the kids and plenty space for ball games. In the heart of the site is a lovely little barn where Stu & Syb on a fri/mon night serve up a wonderful 4 course meal, prepaired in their own kitchen a sunday night is Fouee which are little bits of heaven with various fillings of which you can choose & wed is pizza night cooked outside in their very own home made pizza/bread oven. On site their are bicycles which you can borrow to get a feel of the area another nice little touch.

A pool table and ping-pong kept my two boys (19 & 15) occupied for hours. The atmosphere on site is great, a great place to just chill and yet meet people. Stu and Syb work Incredibly hard to make our and everyones stay as enjoyable as ever, we are after all staying in their garden and infront of their home. They made us feel very welcome. WE WILL BE BACK a great base for lots to do in area. X

Another wonderful time here!Arrived in time for Pizzas and again on way back for a meal! Both excellent and enjoyed the company of the other campers. Cup of tea welcome is wonderful !Toilet block small but clean. New hand towel every day and soap provided. Hot showers. Pool remarkably warm as it had been coolish weather. Saumur Market on Saturday excellent. Bauges worth a visit, small town, market on Monday afternoons. Stu helped sort window problem on van. Thanks ! Well worth a first stop from Caen, St Malo, Le Havre, Cherbourg on way down and a relaxing stop for a few days on the way back. We'll be back next year, you feel like part of the family !

We have just returned from a two week stay at Le Chant Doiseau. It is a the best campsite we have stayed at. Stu and Syb have done a fantastic job in creating a safe and wonderful campsite suitable for young and old. We were there with our 3 children aged 1, 3, 5 and they loved the freedom they had. The site is so safe you can be completely relaxed when the children are playing. The meal nights ( especially the pizza night) are a fantastic idea and a lovley way to meet people and have a drink together. The Campers Kitchen is a fantastic facility and certainly made camping with 3 young children a lot easier. Syb was so nice that when our washing finished we were out and she hung it on the line for us! What more could you ask for. Our 5 yr old didn't to leave and is already talking about going back next year.

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.
