We had eight nights a Les Saules, and it was a brilliant stay! We have camped in the UK, but this was our first experience in France. I was keen to make sure it was a good experience and read lots of reviews carefully before we booked. I made a really good choice!

The first thing that struck me was the friendliness of the staff. I was worried that my rudimentary French wouldn't hold up, but everyone spoke perfect English very happily. Check-in was a breeze, and as others have stated it was great fun following the man on the bike to our pitch. The owner came around shortly afterwards to make sure we had everything we needed, and was always on hand to help out. The pitch was big (easily taking a Kalahari 8 plus porch, a car, and table/seating) and the electric hook-up was standard fitting. It was very level and smooth, making pitching easy, although the ground was hard.

The kids loved the amenities. Free crazy golf, table tennis, wifi were a real bonus, and the pool was very pleasant. There is a fairly large games field for playing, and a 'walking' area with a trail cut out of a meadow with fitness equipment and info about local birds. We also liked the catering. We had takeout pizza and chips several nights, which were pretty standard prices. We also tried the menu of the day in the restaurant and had a lovely meal. The menu changed every day with local dishes & produce - pretty straightforward but done nicely, and good value at 18 Euros for three courses. We also ordered fresh bread and croissants every day, and the kids said these were better than those bought elsewhere.

The area is lovely. There are loads of vineyards & chateaux to explore, and Cheverny village was very pleasant. It was geared for tourists and presented very well. We also hired bikes from the site and followed a short family route around the area. This was very well signposted and easy to ride. A great value afternoon out.

The facilities at the site aren't new and are a little dated, but they were always very clean. Showers had plenty of hot water, and they never got too busy despite the site being full. A laundry proved useful, and good value.

Others felt the site was a bit cramped, but we didn't agree. There was a logic to the layout and plenty of space. Even though there were lots staying there it didn't get too noisy and we didn't feel overlooked. It stayed very quiet from 10. 30pm until 8. 30am and we always got a good night's sleep. The pitches are quite shady as they are mainly tree-lined, but we felt this was a bonus as it kept the morning sun off the tent. The sun did hit our seating area and we enjoyed evening sunshine (with a nice glass of wine!) and felt we had the best of both worlds.

We had everything we wanted from our first French experience. We aren't a family that goes for theme-park sites and so this one fit the bill beautifully. If we wanted hundreds of pitches and lots of water slides we would have looked elsewhere, but we were very pleased with our choice and would definitely recommend it to like-minded people. Top marks from us!

Arrived two days earlier than booked after having to escape a horrendous site in Royan but the staff were welcoming and let us in. We really loved this site! Yes it was busy but the pitches were large and space wasn't a problem. The site owner rode around on his bike smiling and waving and would stop to chat. The kids loved the pool (although for the amount of campers it was a tad too small), the playgrounds, mini golf, TV room (free wifi) kid's club and exercise area. We used it as a base for exploring places for too numerous to list (read the guide book) but the main draw was Tintin's museum in the nearby chateau!

This is a lovely area with lots of green space, cycle paths, quaint shops etc but only a ten minute drive to the nearest supermarket should you need it. As cheapskates, we didn't eat in the on site restaurant but it looked lovely! The shop was great too as it stocked locally brewed beer so for beer snobs like us that was a bonus. Also available was fresh bread and croissants in the morning, if ordered the night before.

This site is family run and it has a nice feel to it, we were relaxed about letting the kids explore on their own. Staff were helpful and spoke better English than my French. Facilities - toilets, showers etc were clean but busy due to the fact that it was peak camping season.

A nice site in a nice area. Very happy with this one.

Great site for kids! lovely welcome by the owners and great to have free wifi at the reception, good clean toilets and showers lovely pool and crazy golf, stayed for 8 nights would use the site again, but would stay less nights found the pitches a little open and very shaded in the woods, easy to find off the motorway and useful for a stopover site would visit again.

A really nice site with a nice flat pitch amongst the trees. We used it as a stopover on our way down to the South of France. The facilities were good and the toilets clean. There was a nice area to walk the dog and the children liked the pool and the crazy golf. What really made it though was the exceptionally warm welcome and the really nice person running the site. The only criticism was that the restaurant was pricey and the food was very average. The staff all were very friendly and English was generally well spoken when my French let me down (which it did frequently!). Will definitely go back and would recommend as a stopover not sure about staying longer.

We stayed at Camping Les Saules in June 2013 for three days. It's one of the best campsites we've ever visited and it was recommended by friends. Unfortunately there were storms and flooding when we went and our cheap tent couldn't cope. Mercifully the campsite manager could not have been more helpful. He moved us to a chalet at the same cost as a pitch to help us dry out, pulled our friend's van out of the mud when he got stuck and constantly lifted our spirits with his general chirpy demeanour - he could not have been more friendly or helpful. And as it was our first camping trip abroad (with two young children) we will be eternally grateful to Camping Les Saules - we cannot recommend the place highly enough.

Just left rally at this site. It's a great site. The facilities could not be better and all pitches are level and well spaced out, under trees for shade and most on grass. The shade wasn't a problem. Weather not really good but the stewards were always helpful and never intrusive. The owners were superb, spoke good English and kept the site immaculate. The rubbish disposal point was quite a walk away but through a lovely campsite. We would definitely go there again. Plenty to see in the area and two large supermarkets a short drive away. A really good site.
