Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

We had noted this town as being of interest when we were last in the area, so decided to stay at the campsite and explore.

This site was in the ACSI book so we gave it a try. It was easy to find from the directions in the book, seemed a bit of a climb out of town. The site is situated just outside the town, off a quiet residential area. The site is quite flat and the pitches are grassy. They seem to have caravan storage here, plus a number of chalets. The clientele were almost all British, seemed to be regulars judging by the groups sitting together.

Check in was efficient, the owners are English but will converse in French if you prefer. We were allocated a pitch, the site was quite full. There is a bar and restaurant and a pool, none of which we used.

The toilet block is quite modern, unisex and clean, and the water was hot. Washing up is outside under cover. This is the only site I have ever been to in France which has toilet paper, plus 2 convenient handwash basins with liquid soap, and a hand drier!

We cycled into the town, not far, mainly downhill. The centre is old and interesting, we got a map from the TIC. There are a few shops and a supermarket on the outskirts. And a very pleasant surprise is the Museum, which has a good collection of cutural artefacts on display, all free of charge.

All in all, a very pleasant experience. However, we agreed that the site, though faultless, just felt like a little bit of Britain, and that is not really the experience we are looking for on holiday.

Pleasant overnight stay. Nice site & very spacious pitch, could get our large motorhome on sideways.

Wash facilities adequate.

Bistro meal very good but rather expensive when you compare to the all inclusive 'menu du jour' prices regularly available off site.

It is advertised & has been reviewed as British owned & very popular with Brits. If you are ok with this that's fine but if you want something more 'French' & used by other nationalities would suggest you go elsewhere.

We found this pleasant site in the Camping Card book, run by an English couple, who had taken over 3 days before we arrived.

Pitches were a good size albeit slightly sloping amongst some trees and bushes. Toilets, showers, basins are all housed in one building with each cubicle separately closed. Could do with a bit of extra cleaning though.

There are the usual washer/dryer facilities as well as a bar/restaurant, although there was no chef when we were there so we canít comment on the food.

Free wi-fi is available all over the site, for those that need to stay connected. Most of the people here were English or Dutch and many seem to be long-stayers, or leave their van there for the whole season. There are also a number of static vans around which we understand will be available for hire.

The new couple, whilst very enthusiastic, are not campers and have not run a site before, so have quite a lot to learn. It was a suitable stop for a couple of nights on our way south, but we would not want to spend longer there.

Arrived on 04/06015 having booked an ACSI pitch for 5 nights. Reception was closed until 4pm! Looked on the door to see which pitch we had been allocated but we weren't on the list. Waited until 4pm only

To find that the site had changed hands in May and the new owners, while trying very hard, weren't quite up to speed! Were told that the names and pitches on the door were from yesterday and that they had forgotten to post today's information. We were allocated a pitch that our outfit wouldn't fit onto and each time we were sent to a different pitch we found that there was already someone on on it. Eventually we pitched our van and said we would stay for one night only, moving on tomorrow. The next day we moved onto a more suitable pitch and did stay the booked 5 days. The site is almost completely occupied by Brits, lots of whom store their caravans there. Toilet block needs a deep clean but is serviceable. The new owners are very pleasant but are fully aware that people are coming to the site having read about it on the website and the information on there isn't current. They need to get to grips with sorting out immediate needs and be available when needed, not taking a three to four hour lunch break! Would we go there again? Only for a short stop over on the way to somewhere else and probably to see what the new owners have managed to make of the place.

Arrived whilst reception closed, however pitch details are posted on the door, so easy to find the pitch!

We had a huge pitch, large enough for our van sideways, awning & car, plus further space.

Pool wonderful, not huge but adequate, tended to get busy towards the end of our stay as a lot of regulars seemed to arrive and their children understandably spent a lot of time in the pool.

Mainly British, but a few French and Dutch whilst we were there.

Very quiet at night, apart from the last few when a group of children would ride at speed around the gravel roads in the dark skidding & screaming now and then making you jump!

The children's play area is great but aimed at smaller children, there is a boules area and a table tennis table.

I cant comment on the toilet facilities as we always use our van, but on the one occasion. I used them from the pool, they were ok.

Cant comment on the restaurant, but we had take away frites one night.

Wonderful walks / cycle rides down by the river, or into the town itself.

Large Intermarche on the outskirts of town with a petrol station.

If you visit, a trip to Chateau Oiron, wonderful place and amazing art display within it, but very off the wall!

Stayed here for 2 nights on the way to the Dordogne

Absolutely superb had a great stay. Lovely walks down by the river and a pleasant stroll into the town hills mightbe a bit much for the less able.

Site facilities are spotless even when we were there in high season especially like the music in the toilet block it was very relaxing

Super staff could not do enough for us plenty to do in the local area and lots of information in the office

Will use again
