Another fantastic stay at Le Chant D' Oiseau. STu and Syb as welcoming and friendly as ever. Even lent me a hot water bottle on a very cold night ! The meals on. Friday are really good, the pizzas on Wednesdays are great and a good way to meet everyone else on site. There are some new chickens this year!

The pool was very welcome on the hot days.

Market days in Bouergueil and Saumur are always worth a visit.

The gite our friend stayed in was lovely with everything she needed.

Wee. Will be back again next year!

Just back after 25 idyllic days at this peaceful and tranquil site. We had wonderful weather for all but 2 days of our stay. The pool was very welcome when the temps. Peaked at 40 degrees ! Cannot say enough good things about the owners Syb & Stu { aka Ian or Fred :)}They were so friendly and helpful and you simply could not wish to meet more genuine and down to earth people.

Superb home cooked food, delicious fresh pizzas and lovely evenings under the stars around the fire pit and communal BBQ.

Tours is a lovely city (went there by train ) Saumur is not to be missed with its lovely markets and chateau and walks along the Loire river. Fabulous walks and easy cycling all around this site. Highly recommended, we are already planning our return next year, next time with our children and grandchildren.

This was probably our 6th visit to Le ChantD'Oiseau and we love it! Stu and Syb are wonderful hosts and the pizza nights, meal nights and now barbecue evenings are great. In spite of the wet weather we were made welcome and were pitched up by the barn on our first visit this year as the ground was so wet. ( this was the same throughout our time in France this year!) on our return the land drains were working very effectively and the camping ground was being used. The cups of tea on arrival are very welcome. Our friend stayed in the little gite and loved her stay there. We went out to the market at Bourgeuil which we love and visited the Church at Candes St Martin and the Panorama from above the church, well worth the walk. It was interesting to see the heavily flooded Loire. We will be back next year.

We stayed here for 10 nights from end of July to early August. I booked this site after many hours of research online looking for the perfect site. All reviews were great and when I booked in January I got the last pitch so we had high expectations. We had a nightmare journey and really hoped the site wasn't too good to be true. When we eventually arrived we were greeted by Stu & Syb who are the loveliest couple. They are always smiling, helpful and make you feel very welcome.

The site is very spacious and you don't feel the pitches are on top of each other. There is a small pool which our daughter used a few times, a table tennis table, pool table, bikes which you are welcome to borrow, play area for younger kids and for ours there was was the all important wifi! The kampers kitchen was great with sinks for washing up, kettle, microwave, fridges and cooker. There were also books to borrow and lots of leaflets for places to visit. The covered barn had the table tennis which was great on a rainy day (yes we did have one of those) and also had tables with benches for eating and even playing Lego on. There were 2 toilets and 2 great showers which given that the site was always full we never queued. The building was a bit rustic in keeping with in character of the converted barn they were in, but we're always clean with a basket of toiletries to use if you had run out or forgotten something. I am a bit fussy about toilet blocks and these were just fine.

Stu & Syb cook 4 nights out of 7 which is just fantastic meaning I had a break. This is eaten in the covered barn and means you get to know some of the other campers. You can buy wine by the carafe to enjoy with your meal. Syb was there every morning with our bread order and was even kind enough to realise when we had forgotten and ordered us some anyway. There isn't a shop on site but you can buy milk. Also there is a very good supermarket in Vernoil about 10 minute drive.

Days out.

We went to Chateau l'Islette, near Azay le Rideau, which is family owned and has very pretty gardens.

In Saumur we did a wine cellar tour at Bouvet Ladubay which has some lovely sculpture in the stone walls. They even do a cycle tour which we couldn't do as you have to be over 14 years old. We enjoyed some crepes in the square which had pretty umbrellas hanging across the road.

We also went to Chateau Villandry but only to walk through the stunning gardens. They are definitely worth a visit if you like gardening.

The kids borrowed bikes a couple of times and we walked around the quiet roads meeting a couple of friendly locals.

We had planned to go out more but our kids aged 16 and nearly 12 were very happy just to relax on the site as were we. They have already said they want to back there next year. I just hope by giving this site a well deserved great review that I can book again myself. Thanks Stu & Syb for a wonderful time.

Another fabulous 3 weeks spent at the best campsite in France! Weather was excellent, fellow campers were great company and, most of all, Stu & Syb--the owners-- did their utmost, as usual, to make this the perfect holiday. The new barn is looking wonderful and hosted several 'meal evenings' where everyone got to know one another better and new friends were made.

Hope to be back at my favourite campsite very soon.

This was the 4th and last camp site of our 3 weeks trip to France and in terms of hosts, location and atmosphere it was the best. Owners Stu and Syb welcomed us on arrival and gave us a free run in terms of how the caravans were positioned on the adjoining pitches we had pre-booked. The site is well laid out with plenty of shade, the picnic tables and benches are a nice touch.

This is a lovely site and the absence of children during our 6 night stay meant it was very quiet. Showers and loos are adequate - loads of hot water and good water pressure (no running around to get wet here !), the newly completed barn makes a fantastic centre piece (our builder friend was very impressed with the quality of the workmanship) and a lovely setting for the meals Stu & Syb cook for the guests. Sadly we were only able to partake on one night but the food and the company were great (excellent value as well), a lovely way to get to know your fellow campers.

Like most small sites electric hook up is only 6 amp but this didn't cause any issues as we come prepared with a low amp kettle. Both Stu and Syb are a mine of local knowledge and all their recommendations were sound (cycle routes, chateau and places to eat), the extensive welcome pack is probably the best we've seen and provides good reference material. The pool was a godsend as it was over 30 degrees for most of our stay - a lovely way to cool off.

The area is great for cycling - loads of shady woodland tracks and the roads are exceptionally quiet. We really enjoyed our stay and found the set up very relaxing - Stu and Syb are fantastic hosts and the site is a delight and a world away from the larger more commercial ones - we all loved it.
