We had one of the tent pitches in the 'shady' areas of the campsite, although a bit too shady because weather was not that warm, it was a bit overgrown and a struggle to find hook up points which were a tangle of wires in another pitch. Generally for kids this site is great, it is in a very quiet location so at night really peaceful, they can wander to see the rabbits, chickens, goats, pigs etc. And its flat and perfect for cycling around. They have a pretty good little cafe/restaurant with basic but good value food and wine. Marianne was extremely helpful and obviously works really hard to keep everyone happy, she personally walked us to our pitch and always had a smile for everyone. There is a good playground for the little ones which is in view of a lot of tent pitches. The equipment for the older kids needed repairing and was taped up.

The pool is NOT heated which is probably a relief on very hot days but not to good if weather is cooler. Even my daughter did not want to stay in for long and I can't usually get her out of the pool! There are lots of showers and toilets and they have double/triple showers which are brill for getting all kids showered together with lots of room in one cubicle BUT - the

Water pressure was awful, down to a trickle and quite a lot of the time cold - so touch and go as to what you would get once undressed and ready to push the button! When they did work they were amazing though!

They run lots of free activities - bread making, walking the dogs (they call nature walks) tractor rides and feeding goats and sit on donkeys for photo. Unfortunately this is one of my other gripes, bearing in mind the farm animals are a big lure and hit for the kids, they were not very well looked after, the sheep needed shearing and was matted, one donkey which was very badly lame should have been (in my opinion) rested in a stable, the pony had overgrown hooves and the rabbits were extremely bony, kept in a pen with turkeys and chickens with no water bottle, just bowl of mucky water which made my daughter quite sad and concerned.

If you take your bikes, the 'la Loire a Velo' trail is not far away with excellent cycling along the Loire. You can pick it up from Chaumont-sur-Loire. Chateaux at Chaumont is also good, also trip to Blois and Amboise worth a day out.

General overview, great site, could do with a bit of attention, tidying up and TLC to the animals! If possible, wander the site before choosing your pitch to see what suits depending on weather and how close you want to be to playground etc.

We stayed here because it was part of the ACSI off season discount scheme and we were not disappointed. The pitches were large but the hedges were very overgrown restricting the area available to pitch, especially in the older, more shady part of the site. The toilet facilities were excellent with fantastic showers. The site is in a rural location and is very quiet - but bread is available even in low season. Our dog thoroughly enjoyed the walks round the fields which were accessible from the site.

Tip. There are pitches with open views on the eastern edge of the site. Electricity points can be quite difficult to locate - find a point that you can access when choosing your pitch.

Our group was two families with four children aged 7 to 11 staying for a week. We shared a large flat pitch lined with hedges with fantastic views over fields on the edge of the site, complete with electric hook up. We ordered very welcome pizza from the bar on arrival which was delivered while we set up our tents. The kids loved the small pool, especially the special 'night swimming' session which they do once a week. They cycled all over the site, and made friends with the farm's goats, donkey, pigs and chickens who live in a field at the end of a short track. There is also a children's play area. We found plenty to do in the area. Lots of beautiful chateaux, the town on Amboise is nearby. The owners were very friendly and helpful and I would highly recommend this site, particularly to families.

We decided on this site after reading the reviews and we were not disappointed.

We stayed in our tent here for 7 nights

Upon arrival Marie gave us lots of leaflets and info about the area and a plan of the site then took us to our pitch and asked it if would be suitable for us.

Our pitch was in between the trees just near the playground so we could sit at the tent and still keep an eye on our five year old.

The play ground was great for our little boy with swings slide and roundabout he loved it.

The toilets and showers were clean and plentiful with several family showers with 2or3 showers in one cubicle.

There are a couple of washing up areas with fridges/freezers free to use and everything was kept clean

There is lots of things to keep the children amused with ride on a tractor trailer to go and feed the animals, or making bread or crafting something but our little one especially enjoyed fishing from the boat on the small lake and catching a fish. Fishing poles line and hooks are available from the bar.

The bar overlooks the swimming pool and serves drinks food and ice cream and is reasonably priced there is also a tv room and a table football.

This was a brilliant site on a working farm in the countryside an ideal place to relax

Will we return? We most surely will

Just a delightful site. The pitch was vast, level, bordered by hedges and with a view to die for across the French countryside. Excellent walking around the farmland, dog-friendly and with lots of animals (sheep, goats, pig, Poitou donkey etc ) if you have children (they do tours round the farm on a trailer). Very quiet, with lots of wildlife (we saw stone curlews!).

The lady in reception gave us a warm welcome. She had limited English, but this was good as it forced me to dredge up my O level French (largely unused for 50 years).

The shower/toilet block is still undergoing some work, but there were plenty open, with the most spacious showers I have encountered on a site, We didn't use the pool, and the bar does not open until July.

If you want a quiet, attractive site within easy reach of many of the Loire attractions (e. G. 5 miles from Chaumont-sur-Loire) then this is the place for you.

As previously mentioned this is a working farm and way out in the countryside.

The site was under going major refurbishment and upgrade / extension of the facilities with additional toilets, showers and dish washing facilities. Because we visited so early in the season this work was still ongoing. I still think the finished facilities will be basic but functional and clean. New roadways had been laid, but I think if the trees and hedges grow much more they are in danger of catching windows or side panels With overhanging branches.

We had a friendly welcome from the owner who's english was better than my French. She showed us to an area where we had a choice of pitches which was so big I was able to do a you turn on it in our 9m motorhome. The pitch overlooked the enormous field next to the site, there was no hege, so the grass stopped and the field began, you could see for miles.

The site was virtually empty with just 1 other motorhome on it. This meant it was incredibly quiet and as we had fantastic weather it can only be described as memorable.

We were given a very handy 'what's on' guide so as well as visiting Blois we also went to the picturesque town of Amboise so visit the market and explore, a great recommendation.

We had a great time and loved it, but I don't know if it would be the same if the site was busy and it was raining!
