Reading the reviews we nearly didnít go, but it would have been our lossÖ adults only would be an attraction for us, but as it was September, it was of little consequence.
The site is isolated, but thatís the attraction, peace and quiet to relax. Yes, at night it is very dark, but surely nobody goes camping with out a torch? If you need shopping you do need to pick it up while out and about as its not practical to pop out for that bottle of wine you forgot! But thatís no different to any site you stay on; you donít want to be getting in and out of the car all day.
The welcome to the site by the owners and their team was very welcoming and informative, well organised with a useful hand out and then personally accompanied us to select our pitch.
There did appear to be lots of regulations, but to be honest it was all just common sense and common courtesy towards other campers and staff. If there is a need to point out obvious considerations like; cleaning the toilet bowl after use it just demonstrates the shortcomings of other inconsiderate campers that have probably stayedÖ.
The facilities were all clean, the pool area was very pleasant as was the terrace and bar areas, nice to just pop down to for that little appero early evening and have a chat.
Good base for visiting the surrounding places of interest.
We stayed four nights and really enjoyed our stay, would definitely return if in the area again.
Returned yesterday from 2 weeks from Chateau de Lacomte and had an amazing time. The reviews made me a little concerned as we had already booked the site after meeting Sheila at the NEC.
If you want a really rural setting, no road noise, black skies where you can see the milky way every evening this is the place to visit.
We knew it was a car ride from the supermarket so took plenty of essentials and bread can be bought on site and ordered until the bar closes every evening for the next day.
Previous people complained about loo rolls! Stayed at a municipal site on the journey back and also at Caen where no paper provided. It means no trails of paper all over the toilets as you are paying for it you are more careful.
Dark campsite little lights- yes! fantastic bring a torch.
The site was really clean- toilets, showers and pool area and that is most important to me. Very spacious site with woodland areas and we even had deer come in during the morning. Lots of places to visit within 30 mile radius.
If you want a really peaceful retreat in a beautiful area this is the place to come. Any regrets in choosing this site- none at all
I'm a journalist of French/Italian origin. I chose to stay on this site because English people I met on my travels mentioned it to me. I did not know or understand the concept of Adult Only Camping. This form of camping is not known in Europe so a good subject for me & I wanted to see what it was like.
Well, I very much liked it here, relaxing & peaceful all the time. Very pretty picturesque area, lots to see & enjoy. Walking routes are good, cycling too if you are fit. On site hospitality very friendly & helpful. Site facilities very good & very clean. Toilets always clean & I never wait for a shower. The camping area was lovely, lots of space & my own tap. Beautiful countryside all round me plus much wildlife. Pool very large, great for swimming in August with no children, this was nice especially no screaming. Relaxing on a sunbed was for me heaven, so different without children. Price for 4* site I did not think expensive.
I very much liked the food served in the restaurant, prices like other campings I stayed, but service, presentation & taste better here. Snack meals & take-away food were good, gooooood pizzas, M'mmm, nearly as good as my Papa's ! Bread, croissants & other nice things baked each day on site, you order by 11. 00pm the night before. Band night with the curry I enjoyed, lovely dessert, good price, band was very good, great music.
I liked the freedom pitch service with use of a car, made my site-seeing very simple with a small vehicle so many lovely places. I definitely recommend this concept of camping, & stay again this year but in the gÓte. The other rental locations, Mobile Homes & Chalets are very nice & well equipped. This time I prefer to stay in the gÓte as I stay with my Family because there will be no children. I enjoyed very much my stay here last year, and recommend this site. It will be interesting for me as I did not identify myself to the owners or staff. I look forward to introducing myself & complimenting the owners, on their camping. They moved here not speaking French in 1991 with their three small children designed, created then built their business together. An incredible story. I hope to hear more next time I am there. Enjoy your Holidays, who knows maybe I meet you this year. Alexandrea
This was our 2nd trip to Lacomte first time was August 2010. This really is a little quiet haven, very clean, very friendly and absolutely ideal if you want to enjoy a peaceful holiday without children running around, screaming and making a mess all over the place.
I can't believe some of the reviews I've read on here people complaining about taking their own Loo Roll to the loos. Even when I've stayed on sites that do supply loo roll I still take my own anyway! I have seen many times on different sites through UK, France, Spain and Portugal, people unnecessarily wasting loo roll because they feel they've paid for it. After spending so much time in France I have experienced how expensive loo roll is so Stuart & Sheila and the team no one really gives a damn about the loo roll you make a difference in far more important areas like providing a great ambience, clean safe surroundings, great food in the restaurant and your band nights were the best fun ever!
Well done to you and your team keep up the good work and look forward to seeing you next season.
We've just returned from Chateau De Lacompte after our 4th visit in 3 years ( twice this year). Yes, It really is that good!
If you are searching for peace and quiet and the chance to relax and unwind at your own pace, then this has to be the place. The pitches are generous, well tended and separated by hedges which offer much needed shade in the middle of the day. At night the absence of light pollution reveals the best view of the night sky I have ever seen. Many times we have stayed up until the early hours stargazing and counting the satellites and shooting stars.
The toilet and shower blocks are large and spotless, although I have to admit that the full-service pitches mean that we have rarely used the showers on a regular basis.
The pool is one of the most inviting we have ever enjoyed. Spotlessly clean, cool and never crowded; whenever we have arrived at the pool we have always had sunbeds available and have never been disturbed by other bathers.
The restaurant is excellent and, whilst the menu is quite narrow, the quality of the food is excellent and good value. The twice weekly events and live music have also been enjoyable and of good quality, especially the barbecue.
In short, this is our favourite campsite and owners Stuart and Sheila, together with the very friendly and helpful staff, deserve great credit for making Chateau De Lacompte such a peaceful paradise for adult campers.
We have just returned, having spent 2 relaxing weeks and what a superb site to recommend. Friendly and very helpful owners and staff. Lovely, well kept site that is ideally situated for days out to nearby towns and villages, although we didn't do too many as the weather was glorious, so we were more than happy to relax by the lovely, clean pool on site. Great bar, restaurant and terrace area to have a chilled drink or two. Pitch 46 was a good size and ideal for our caravan, awning, table and chairs and sun loungers. The freshly baked bread and pan au chocolates were delicious each morning, thanks to Stuart. Enjoyed the evening entertainment and spending time on the terrace chatting to the other holidayers. We didn't have a problem with the lighting or the toilet roll as described in other reviews and think some people are just too pickie. The toilets and shower area were spotlessly clean and that's all that matters to me. We cant find any faults and will definitely return next year and our friends want to come too. Thank you for a great holiday, shame it wasn't longer.
