A lovely tranquil, rural setting. Tucked away from all traffic noise with only the sounds of nature. A true 'getaway from it all' place. Small site with lots of space electric hook ups, surrounded by open fields. Clean, warm, out of season facilities, plenty of local information and maps, library and games to use. Play areas, lovely plunge pool. Covered outdoor eating area with communal barbecue Bicycles for all to rent cheaply to explore the surrounding safe country lanes. Shops and large supermarket close by. Lovely people, great place. Excellent gite to rent and very accomodating caravan storage /service. We have already booked for next year for our piece of heaven in France.
I have to agree with the previous comments that the owners are very friendly and helpful. However, I was a little bit disappointed with the campsite as it is little more than an extension to their back garden and in the middle of nowhere. Perfect, if you want somewhere quiet.
It has the basic facilities - 2 toilets and 2 showers - and they were clean and hot. Laundry can be done by the owners in their house. There was also local info available although it was quite out of date.
However, there is little to do or see in the immediate area without driving.
Personally, I didn't feel that I got good value for money and seemed to be penalised for being single (all other campsites took this into account with pricing).
[I actually paid less for a campsite with bar, shop, laundry and heated swimming pool, walking distance from Mont-Saint-Michel. ]
I can not recommend this site enough, I have stayed at many sites in France over the years and this one in a beautiful rural setting is a gem in the Loire region. My family including our two dogs were made welcome from the start. The owners are British, they are experienced enough to let you 'get on with your own thing', but are friendly enough to assist in any way they can when an issue arises that may need a bit of local knowledge. The toilets and showers were spotless, the site had a great pool which was a blessing during the hot days. The local area was very pleasing with a small village not far from site, it also benefits from having a great 'Super U' supermarket a short drive away.
Whilst we were there we had the chance to look around the available 'Gite' to hire, this was a lovely self contained house on the site that would easily seep four with its own terrace at the front for sun and dining, meaning next year perhaps I can bring non caravanning relatives over to join us during our stay.
I cannot add very much of substance to what has already been said. This is remarkable site. People actually interact and seem to gel remarkably well. Adam and Theresa strike a beautiful balance of care and interest without being intrusive. The site has an open aspect which is a rare finding! The facilities are more than adequate, ensuring a very comfortable stay. Our dogs were graciously tolerated by everyone and we all enjoyed exploring this area. I could say more and eulogise at length - but we want to book for next year!
I have reviewed this site several times because we store a caravan there and would not miss a few nights to chill out on arrival and a few to get organised prior to departure.
I don't really need to praise the site again as the positive reviews below say it all but I will simply confirm the same high standards as every year.
We had booked 3 nights on arrival and wanted to add a couple more but the popularity of Le Serpolin made sure it was already full after our booking. Our friends had a leaking water cylinder and Adam in usual helpful manner had a qualified caravan engineer on the site within a couple of hours who replaced the item with a reconditioned unit at a very reasonable price. I think that says everything about customer service. Adam also came up with a battery charger and previously an air pump. I should shut up now or we won't get a booking for next year! Well done Adam and Theresa - still the best site in France.
This is a wonderful small campsite in a quiet, rural location. The owners Adam and Theresa provide a lovely welcome, and are always on hand to answer questions, and assist (milk on a Sunday!). The facilities are unisex, and are very well maintained, and regularly cleaned. The plunge pool is a lovely feature, especially as we were there in 30c weather. There is a pond full of fish, a real fascination for my young daughter, and a good way of disposing of the stale bread. The nearest services are in the local villages and towns, (Bread/Milk - 5 minute drive away, anything else 15 minutes away). The local area abounds in many sites to visit, we were amazed by the amount of sights and places to see and visit, and have we have decided a return visit is a must. We must mention the Zoo at Doue Le Fontaine (20 mins), it is a must see, both for the animals, but also the location - fantastic. We stayed 4 nights, but would recommend a week at least. Finally, travelling with small children, the need to feel comfortable and safe is paramount, and this site offered both, being a small site it had a lovely homely feel, and everyone on the site interacted. It is a genuine gem that deserves a visit.
