I loved this pretty little campsite and found everything immaculately maintained. Monsieur could not have been more helpful, and whilst we only stayed overnight we would gladly go back for a week or two.
Lots to do in the area, but the site is in a beautiful location only a couple of miles from a pleasant town with supermarket, etc.
Whilst not much English is spoken, with free wifi- just download the google translate app to your smart fone. If you get stuck, just type it in and press translate!
Everything said in the previous review stands and I can't add a lot to it really.
This isn't a all inclusive geared for kids and families site, but it is a lovely site, well located and with excellent facilities (and I wouldn't want the above).
The site was easy to find. Signposted from Chatel Guyon. I telephoned the day before to make a reservation but it didn't seem to matter. The guy who runs the place's favourite phrase seemed to be 'Pas de problème'!
The showers are excellent. Warm and never a queue.
The site's water supply is fed from Volvic so what you are drinking is what you'd pay £1 a bottle for in the UK!
There was Wifi which was nice. What was even better is that we had it at our pitch! No idea how when I can't get it at the other side of my house sometimes!
There is a boules (or petanque) area. A little kids play area with a swing, sea-saw and a trampoline. There is a small pool which seemed popular (can't comment myself). Also a restaurant which looked decent, but again we didn't try it.
Very few to no other British people there when we were which for me was excellent as I got chance to practice my French. That said I'm sure if you didn't speak much French you'd get buy, everyone was very friendly.
Pricing wise, a confusing and individually unique system like every campsite seems to have. I didn't really try to work it out but it cost us around €11-€12 per night based on the final bill.
Locally places to visit:
The Puy De Dome mountain, also many other ancient volcanoes to walk up/around.
Chatel Guyon is a nice town, Royat has a nice spa/pool.
For a rainy day there is the Maison de Pierre which is about Volvic rock and also the discovery of the Volvic water source.
Overall - I'm struggling to find a reason not to give this place 10/10. If you don't speak French I'm sure you'll cope absolutely fine with pointing and a basic phrase book. (They might even speak English, I never actually tried)
