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)

Great location, a hilside campsite affording panoramic views of the valley on the south side of the Puy de Dome.

Pitches - are spacious with electricity optional, and many are terraced to enable the fabulous views.

Facilities - 10/10 The showers wer like wet rooms!

Pool - there is a small pool overlooking the valley - great to cool down on a hot day and enjoy the view.

Minibus - a mini bus came onto the site every hour from 08:00 to shuttle people into Chatel-Guyon.

Bread - delivered daily to site, but there is a lovely patiserie a short distance away in Chatel-Guyon.

Supermarket - Large ELeclerc in Morzat, nr RIOM which is a short distance away.

General

We found this site en route to Loubeyrat and were pleasantly surprised. We could have been in Tuscany, the views were lovely.

The concierge on site was passionate about it job and ws obviously something of a local character judjing by his popularity and the many, photographs in the accuiel.

We have definitely added this to our list of 'must go back' places.

We used the site as a base, we visited the Puy De Dome and a number of local historical sites in the area. I would highly recommend this.

For us 2 adults, one tent, one car it was only 11 Euros a night, so a bargain too.
