A great stopover en-route to & from the South, but we often linger an extra day or so as it's so relaxed and immaculately maintained. It tends to attract a mainly older clientele, so there aren't many other children for ours to play with, but there is a Base de Loisir in the next village at a reasonable price and Jura lakes and mountains to visit to keep children entertained - our favourite is Lac de Vouglans. The ATAC (and a new Netto) supermarket is within 1 mile of the site and the pretty town is just a little further down the road, with a weekly market and cafes. Reception stocks a few basics and bread can be ordered for the following morning. Chips are offered at 1. 70 euro per portion 3 evenings and week and a pizza van visits on a Tuesday in high season. A peaceful site in the Burgundy countryside.

We have been here before! It's a fabulous site with pitches where you place your unit and still have space to play a game of cricket! Lots of space and the facilities are very good. Place your order for chips for your evening meal if you are so inclined the lady makes them for you. Great little pool and lovely and quiet. Supermarkets either side and the local town of Pont de Vaux well worth a visit. Not far from Macon which again is worth a visit with good restaurants and lovely walks down the river

I can highly recommend this site it's a great stop over for the trip north or south and I would definitely spend more time here. What can I add. It's a great site!

Lovely rural site, we struggled to find it but that was driver / Sat Nav error. We stopped for three days on the way to the South and could have stayed longer. If only all pitches were this size. Good showers, nice little pool although a bit chilly. Little play area for the kids but ours didn't bother. The owner is a nice chap and is even more accommodating if you attempt a little French. More importantly, he stocks the basics in his little office, chilled Lager, what a hero. You can also order bread and croissants for the following day.

Owner also posts anything of interest on a whiteboard at reception on a daily basis.

Wi fi works near reception if you feel need to update your facecloth status whilst on holiday.

Pont Du Vaux is a lovely little town, the church is worth a gander, along with the market and the local swimming pool. The restaurant we visited was also very good, 'Crispiz' on the way into town on the left from the site.

Nice site, pretty town, worth a visit.

This is the second time we've been to this site and it won't be the last. We managed to book the same pitch. We love everything about this site and it's owners. They very kindly lent us some tent pegs as we were short. It's a fab site for a couple of nights or even longer. Love the pitch sizes and the chilled atmosphere on site. Facilities on site are very good. We didn't have kids with us but I'm pretty sure if we did they would have been fine on site. Plenty of room to play. Great for shopping around the area. Will definitely return.

Reviewer: Parlourbarn 10 reviews from this member

We visited in September and the site was still busy initially. Very well used by the British it seems, there were many there and even the hook ups were British plugs not French! The pitches are of a very good size with some extremely big, most with 10 amp electrics however we managed to fuse ours twice and the owner got quite grumpy! The site advertises it has Wi fi but this is only immediately next to reception and is quite intermittent. We had a fair amount of rain, and the grass is not kept short on the pitches and therefore your feet get very wet very quickly. Equally the trees between the pitches are all overgrown both in width and height and therefore you see very little of the sun. Pont-de-Vaux is only a mile away with a supermarket, petrol and all the shops you will need and there are some lovely villages nearby.

This is the only French campsite we've ever gone back to for a second holiday. It's still as lovely as ever - quiet, spacious, well maintained, lovely atmosphere. We cannot recommend this site too highly. All the points in our 2011 review still stand.

We would only add - do take a drive over to Cluny and enjoy the vineyard countryside. Mont St Romain has breathtaking views and a badly maintained approach road! We also had a long day out driving towards Gex and enjoying stunning views of Mt Blanc, Lake Geneva and Geneva itself.
