Reviewer: Joolb 22 reviews from this member

We stayed at this site for 6 nights during some very wet weather. The pitches are all grass and became very boggy by the end so we had some difficulty moving the van even with a motor mover. We booked a castels pitch through the caravan club but shouldn't have bothered, as the fridge was in a terrible state as were all the others we could see-obviously had not been checked at all.

The site is very attractive -lots of fruit trees and hedges-mostly supplied wth electricity, some with water and drain.

The walk into quimper town centre took us nearly 45 minutes but bus line 1 goes into the centre every 12 minutes until about 7 pm. Plenty of cafes/ creperies/ restaurants to suit all tastes, and there is a coffee shop across the road from the site gate. There's a bakery about 10 minutes walk away and a big carrefour about 30 minutes away but we went in the car as the traffic wa quite heavy and not a nice walk.

Site staff were few and far between but there was always someone at reception with no big gaps in the day.

Clearly the end of the season, no shop, bar open only when dinner being served, I don't feel we saw the site at its best and wouldn't go again.

Pleasant welcome when we arrived and the lady at the desk was very informative about the area.

A very attractive site, with grassy hedged pitches amongst trees, and plenty of water points. Lots of bird life and red squirrels. The site is part of an estate and you are free to wander round the grounds and, when there is not an event such as a marriage on, around the gardens. The disadvantage is that people who visit the grounds are free to wander around the camping area and stare into your van, presumably thinking you're included in what they've come to see. This also means the site is not very secure. The site was very quiet, only four units on it when we visited. The men's san facs were closed and everyone had to use the ladies', but it's not unusual in France to have unisex facilities. The san facs were okay with loo seats, paper, soap and drier. The wash-ups were a bit grubby and it was obvious that they weren't cleaned at all between our arrival and when we left 2 days later. Because the san facs that were in use had no laundry facilities people were washing their clothes in the wash-up sinks, and there is also a baby bath in with them. It's a long way from reception to the campsite and as the laundry facilities are at reception it's not practical to use them unless you want to hang around with a book or whatever. The bar, shop and cafe are around this area too, though they weren't open when we visited. Phone reception is poor, wifi is available and is fairly fast but expensive at 8 for a day. There's a MVWP that was okay for us but big motorhomes might find it awkward. We paid 20. 10 with an ACSI card.

It's a pleasant walk into Quimper through woods and then alongside the River Odet. The site's details say it's 2 km but to reach the main part of town it's nearer 4. Quimper is an interesting city, with lots of shops, museums and creperies, and it's enjoyable walking around the old streets.

On arrival greeted by very friendly English speaking young lady who was very pleasant indeed. We were using the ACSI discount card which was readily accepted. Allocated a very large pitch for our caravan which had shared water supply with 5 other pitches but as we were the only one in that area we had water and drainage to ourselves!The electricity was standard CEE(3 plug)system with normal polarity so we did not need to use 2-pin converters. The whole site is in former woodland so there are plenty of trees around which makes it a very relaxing ambience and most pitches are separated by hedges for privacy. The swimming pool was still in use and this is a fantastic pool with slides and fountains, surrounded by rock formations. Water was heated to 23 degrees so very pleasant in the warm September sunshine. The bistro was still open for lunches and we had a lovely brown grain crepe with ham, cheese and egg filling. Again, the young lady waitress was very pleasant indeed and found the time to chat to us. We looked at the restaurant menu but found it quite expensive so did not eat in there. As usual at this time of the year when it is fairly quiet the second toilet block was closed but we found the remaining one(about a 200metre walk away) very modern, clean, and well presented. They were separated into male and female showers/loos. However, this lead to the only negative comment about this site. On an open weekend when the chateau was opened to the public, they closed all the male toilets giving access to 'visitors' only. This meant using the ladies facilities which then became over crowded. I actually got told off by a French lady who ushered, me towards the male loos until I told her 'Hommes ferme!'. We felt at this time to be treated as second class citizens to casual visitors when we had paid good money for the facilities. The walk to Quimper took about 15/20 minutes and could be taken through a lovely woodland walk or along the main roads. I suggest the former as a more pleasant experience. Quimper is a lovely city but the downside was that the beautiful cathedral ( I am told) is undergoing major renovation and was completely closed off by large hoardings so you could not see anything. The market on Tuesday is fantastic with plenty of stalls selling almost everything. There was even a local brass band parading through the market with jugglers, stilt walkers, mono bikes, etc. , creating a really festive atmosphere. Don't miss the lovely town of Douarnenez on the coast. It has a marine museum where you can see many old boats including a Thames barge. The walk around the bay is fantastic and there are lovely sandy beaches if you fancy a swim in the sea.

Altogether, a lovely site with good facilities and one which I would recommend. Just one minor point to mention. The actual camping area is a very long way from the front entrance and reception, restaurant, pool, bistro, etc. , which could be a handicap if you are less mobile. However, on the positive side there is plenty of parking in this area so the car can be used if necessary.

Just returned from a 4-night visit.

Tent, pitch with electric and water. 2 Adults and 2 kids.

Arrival - we were with Eurocamp Independent, who don't seem to have their act together to be honest, Reception sent us to Eurocamp who sent us back, all at 7pm after 15 hour's travel. Needs sorting out.

Apart from that, reception were fine. Pitch was good, flat, sheltered - we were lucky to get fairly close to the play area and toilet block; I can see that some of the more distant pitches could mean a lot of walking. All very child friendly, though. Kids loved the playground.

Toilets and showers were clean and functional.

Walking around the grounds is pleasant, you can explore around the house and the local woods. But you do have to drive if you want to go far outside the site.

The shop was a bit sparse but perfectly acceptable, and there is a big supermarket about 3 minute's drive away. The pool was great fun, but quite cold (has to be said that the weather was unseasonably cold as well).

Overall we'd stay there again, especially if it was a bit warmer!

This campsite was recommended to us by a number of friends and relatives - great for kids, stunning location, etc, etc.

As we arrived via an industrial estate, we checked in and were given a very small, uneven pitch that also doubled as an access point for other cars. We called reception (which was a good quarter of a mile away) to change it and got a better spot.

We then checked the pool and shops - the latter is a nice looking design but freezing cold with all waterslides switched off. The shop and bar were both closed so we walked all the way back. When the shop did open (very short opening hours) it was almost empty.

We looked at the playground - overgrown and very tired looking. Our kids tried the trampolines; fun until our daughter, aged three fell through the netting (it hadn't been tied at the bottom so it's very dangerous) and very nearly broke her arm.

The atmosphere too was very Home Counties/Golf - a wee bit snooty, lots of claret cords and brand new Audis. For reference we have a pretty new VW California campervan but still avoid anywhere snooty like the plague.

And the location - we'll happily walk miles but 'walkable' to Quimper is stretching the point rather far. The nice buildings - all private and almost inaccessible. The river frontage showed on the marketing materials - the same.

The facilities are clean and all work fine but it just felt rather tired overall.

So despite having paid for two nights, we left after one. This site clearly suits many but for us, it did nothing for the kids and nothing for us.

A lovely campsite! Large site in the grounds of a chateau on the banks of the Odet. Huge pitches in orchard/garden-like setting, with some hedging between. Two loo blocks, one newer than the other (read blue & white as opposed to red & green!) but both cleaned regularly. Good showers with the usual presta 'timer' button and not scalding hot. Washing up and laundry facilities good too. Reception, bar/restaurant, shop, laundry and pool (with slides and fountains and 'lazy river' constant flow as well as a toddler pool) are grouped together and around a 5/7 minute walk from the camping area. Another smaller pool and kids playground within the camping area. Beautiful grounds for an evening stroll or early morning run.

We went for a premium pitch so had hookup, water nearby, a table, chairs, BBQ and fridge included. If you have a 3-pin electric hookup block and hire a fridge you'll need to have a converter from French to UK 3-pin plug (Seems obvious, but we'd not thought this through and had to bodge a shaver adaptor).

Order your Croissants, Pain, etc the night before. English, German, French (!) spoken.

Oh, and a 9-hole golf course, driving range and practise putting greens. There are keycamp units here too, as well as cottages for from 2 (by the river) to 10.

Please don't go here, you may get 'our' place next year. ;)
