All the positive comments from previous reviewers hold true. Toilets and showers very clean and sufficient in number. Pitches big and a mixture of shade/open. Pool, small but well maintained. Pont de Vaux is a small town but with ample restaurants and cafes and a small Carrefour supermarket. Cycling along the canal is pleasant and easy. During our stay it was mostly Dutch campers which took away a little of that French 'feeling' but maybe that's just us. The owners are pleasant and available without being intrusive. Would recommend it.

My review of 2014 still holds true. Great site, friendly owners and very good facilities. The owner puts up the weather forecast and where and when the local markets are due. Try to get to the local markets early though, when we went the town was full! No where to park! Remember too, that the sewers need environmentally friendly Elsan products so be careful when using the chemical disposal point.

What a wonderful site! This is our second visit, we stayed one night last year as we headed further afield and just had to come back this year for more, staying 3 nights but would happily stay one or two more.

It's obvious to the eye that this small site is well loved by its owners with everything pristine and incredibly well kept and cared for.

My kids, age 8 and 10, love the pool which is the perfect size for a site of this size, there are bird houses, insect hotels, log piles and pea wigwams dotted here and there. A herb garden with cherry tomatoes. Ping pong table, a couple of shady seating areas around the pool, a kiosk open every other day selling ice creams and snacks. Wifi near the reception area.

For us it is the perfect place to stop, reconnect as a family (after packing the 'van and initial travel traumas) and relax into holiday mode.

I write this from beside the pool, wishing we were not leaving in the morning. (That's what I said yesterday morning too!)

We spent 8 nights here at the end of August and really enjoyed the peaceful nature of this campsite. The pitches are very generous in size and nothing is a long walk away. There were mainly Dutch campers during our stay and not many children. You do get some road noise on the pitches 30 through to 41 as they are on the sides that face the main road and this noise did fluctuate during the course of day. The pitches 37 to 41 border fields and benefit from a great views across the fields and sunsets over the distance hills. The campers on those pitches faced their caravans and chairs towards the fields rather than toward the campsite to enjoy the scenery. The owner was very helpful and was always around. The pool though small and not very deep was ideal for cooling off during the heat of the day. Showers and toilets were always clean and never overcrowded (not at 9 am anyway). You have a choice of a supermarket a small Intermache Contact (turn left onto the main road) or a larger Atac towards Pont Du Vaux. The nice feel about Les Ripettes are the gardens that you can water and tend to if you feel inclined. Wifi reception is restricted to around the pool and reception area so there was a gathering of people with phones, tablets and laptops in the evenings.

So in summary, large pitches, and no real hustle and bustle you get with larger campsites.

A lovely environmentally friendly site only stayed for a few days but loved it. A small site very well managed with lovely facilities

The site owners clearly love the job they do. Only a few grumbles we were given our pitch number and on arrival we had to clear up a pile of vomit that the previous occupants had left us.

Also when we were out for the day some dog owner had let their dog do their business on our pitch. Yeah thanks for that ? THIS HAS NO REFLECTION ON THE SITE OR OWNERS. And I would definitely return

Fabulous site. We only stopped over for two nights as we travelled from the South of France to Dover. We have vowed to go back some time to experience the site and local area a little more. Really tranquil, relatively small site but with massive grass pitches - there would be at least two pitches in the same space in the UK. The owners are very friendly and helpful, living adjacent to site. The pool is small but I would say big enough for the site. Facilities ok. Caravan and motorhome users worth noting that the site is not on mains sewerage (presume a septic tank) so you can't dispose of toilet waste containing normal blue toilet fluid. The site will provide a green alternative but that's no good if you have travelled there with the toilet set up using blue fluid.
