We stayed here for 7 nights from 28th May to 3rd June 2017. We took the tent instead of the caravan this holiday and our bikes. We found the campsite and went to book in. We had paid a deposit by card and we were expecting to pay the remainder there and then, however, the very friendly receptionist just asked for the booking reference and some ID(I used my C&CC Card) and we were shown to our pitch by the very friendly owner. No mention was made of the outstanding amount. There are 2 shower and toilet blocks, we were pitched in the middle of the campsite and was equidistant from both of them, the one near the pool has unisex Toilets, albeit split in two, with separate showers and sinks, which were always very clean, both had washing up facilities and clothes washing sinks. The site is large and all the pitches are separated by trees, the pitches are very large and level. There are 2 swimming pools on the site, one is outdoors and the other has a cover but the sides can be raised, which the owner did daily and covered them at night, so they were warm.

There are many cycle tracks in the area and they pass by the site. We cycled to Chambourd, Amboix and a few other circular trips. The tracks are either off road or on very quiet side roads, we very rarely saw a car, but plenty of cyclists, all who were very friendly and helpful when you took the wrong turn.

We Drove to Sancerre for the vinyards and the wine. We also drove to Chenonceaux(not sure of spelling) where the chateau is accross a river. We Booked well in advance and the site was very reasonable at around 15 a night.

I can recommend this site and will be going back

Stayed here for 8 nights middle to end of the month. Great area for cycling and walking etc not much was going on when we where there but this was maybe down to low season the place was quiet empty as it was near the end of August when we arrived. Not much for an 8 yr old to do but she got on with it, the bar was ok the food also, overall it was ok I was not impressed with the amount of noise from the the long road which runs along side the site late at night and early in the morning but that maybe just me and for that reason I would not go back but the owner was fantastic and the toilets where just ok water was not very hot for that time of the year. The pitch was great which gave us the morning sun. Overall from my point of view ok site but as I said already road noise will keep me away.

It was a real shame because the weather was awful this particular weekend. The site is in a forest of silver birch trees and is very pretty when the sun shines through. Pitches are level mostly and nice big areas. The toilets were clean, but because they're quite open to the elements were quite cold and drafty this particular weekend; toilet paper is supplied but you have to collect how much you need at the entrance to the toilet block. Washing machine/tumble dryer available, but you need to buy tokens at the office. The bar area and shop were well stocked, and the lady opened the shop especially for us when we arrived. We didn't eat there, so can't review, however it did seem to be pretty busy. The swimming pool is now covered (unlike the photo shows) and apparently is 'very warm'. Rubbish and recycling is a fair hike to the entrance of the site. Everyone very friendly, and always a happy smile.

We spent 6 nights here. Check in was easy, staff all very friendly and helpful. The owner cycled round the site several times a day. We were given a choice of pitches, as it got busier people were directed to specific pitches. We did not feel overcrowded and had plenty of room to park caravan, full awning and car next to each other and still have plenty of room for table and chairs in the sun or dappled shade of the trees.

Pitches are separated by trees rather than hedges so not as private as some but this was not a problem. Although busy it was always quiet from about 10:30 pm.

Swimming pools were lovely and there is still playing field and walk, didn't try other activities.

Bar takeaway and restaurant were all very good.

Lots to see and do in the area, Blois was nice for a day out also Cheverny chateau and village. There is a large supermarket 5k down the road. We had bread every day from the site shop.

If you like cycling this is the place for you, our neighbours did several rides using maps from reception and said they were excellent. #

Facilities were very french and always clean and tidy.

We would definitely return

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.
