Stayed in a 'cottage plus' chalet for a week over Easter 2017.

No signs of previous flood - all clean and site well tended.

Chalet clean, modern, and everything in good working order. Double and twin rooms were inevitably small (only a few inches of space around/between the beds) but comfortable mattresses, and beds all made up, quilts and linen clean (with disposable mattress and pillow protectors too), with extra pillows and blankets available. Plenty of bath towels provided, electric heaters in rooms, powerful shower, separate toilet. Kitchenette well equipped with large fridge with freezer, but only 2 rings on hob and a microwave (no oven, grill or electric toaster) and strangely had a coffee machine but no kettle (had to boil a saucepan for tea!). L-shape sofa area and kitchen bar/worktop seats a family of 4 adequately (but I would not want a 5th person there). Patio area with table and chairs outside would be lovely in warm weather. Nice 'village' layout to the chalets.

Shop on site quite expensive (as expected) but has fresh croissants and baguettes from 8am and sells fresh (not UHT) milk (hard to get in parts of France). Bigger supermarket 10 mins walk on other side of Seine in suburb centre.

Shuttle bus from campsite to metro is essential as its few miles to walk there (Bois de Bologne park on east and river on west, so no nearer metro stop). Bus is modern, full-sized, with reliable service (runs every half hour early morning to lunchtime then returns half hourly between 5:45 to 11:45 pm); 1E70 each way if you buy 10 tokens at a time. Metro at Port Maillot is 1E40 (if you buy 10 singles) to anywhere in centre - its in a useful location on a central line 1 (between Arc de Triumph and La Defense) in Zone 1 and you can switch lines without paying twice. Children have to pay full price travel from 12 years, but are mostly free for museums etc.

Wash rooms on site were also modern and clean, lots of showers and private sink cubicles, and about 8 toilets BUT all unisex.

Table tennis tables, a volleyball/boules court and a nice kids playground on site as well as a pizza van and a restaurant (quite expensive when you've a family with big kids to feed and our exchange rate is so poor, but everywhere is dear in Paris!)

Easy drive from Calais to the end of motorway but the last few miles were tricky with so many direction signs to digest and busy traffic. The worry of city traffic and unisex toilets tempted us to rent the chalet (rather than pull our own touring caravan), and we were very relieved we did - it didn't cost too much extra after taking into account the cheaper ferry crossing without our caravan, and it was nice to arrive with everything set up ready to go exploring!

All in all, would highly recommend the site as a base for visiting Paris, and it was an easy drive to the stunning Palace of Versailles to the SW of the city (can go by train too).

Was worried about driving so close to Paris itself, but the satnav was spot on. Heavy traffic, but no problems whatsoever. The site is easy to find and in a great location if you want to visit Paris itself. Very welcoming with good facilities - unisex toilets and showers - and an acceptable restaurant for the time of year. Good walking around the Bois de Boulogne. Used it as a stopover on our way south through France and on towards Spain.

This is the second time at this campsite. Indigo have been renovating it during the winter so it is looking good. Great campsite by the Seine, although you can't get to the river as it is fenced. It is very convenient for public transport. They do have a bus service (for which they charge), but we used the Paris bus service. The bus stop is 8 mins walk and it takes you to Porte Maillot Metro. Service and frequency is very good and once you have a Paris pass you can use it on the buses and metro.

Although we didn't use the showers, the blocks are all new and very clean.

There are individual sites with low hedges between and lots of trees for shade in summer.

There is a shop which has the essentials and later in the season a pizza place.

Staff were very helpful. Main road beside campsite is busy. Campsite is easy to drive to.

Excellent base to see Paris

Bus from site runs promptly every 30 mins to nearest metro.

Site was well laid out & facilities good, shop well stocked & restaurant offers lovely food at reasonable prices.

Toilet blocks where cleaned daily, though floors were often very wet which created a hazard for one of our party who is disabled & has poor mobility. Facilities for disabled people could be greatly improved. Only one block had a disabled shore & toilet, which was very basic and could be improved, the fixed shower seat was in poor repair and dangerous.

This site is based in Paris in the Bois du Boulogne (hence the name). This makes it about as good as it gets for sightseeing, one can leave the car and use the excellent bus service that runs to the city centre.

The B du B has a bit of a reputation at night-time, but security was very good and we had no qualms.

The site itself is basic: a shop, a bar/restaurant and a take-away are there, but really for the quiet evening you can't be bothered to go into Paris (nice whole roast chicken from the takeaway though). This suited us much better than having people rolling past the tent in the small hours. Toilets and showers are again not the most modern, but were clean and did the job.

All pitches are gravelled, which we were a bit concerned about being in a tent, but this turned out OK with no sharp stones to rip our groundsheet. In fact it was better than camping on pitches bereft of grass that happens on many busy sites. Given that we are in Paris, the site is pretty quiet, even at night.

Our pitch was quite narrow but very deep: plenty of room for the car as well as us. It was also nicely private with mature bushes marking the perimeter. But pitches come in all shapes and sizes so if you've a big van or motorhome it's probably as well to set down your requirements when booking.

Finally, this was our first visit to Paris and we had been warned about the rudeness of the locals. Our experience was the exact opposite. Everyone was polite and friendly to us, and when our car malfunctioned (its electrics went wobbly & frizzed the satnav, leaving us with no idea where we were), a really kind Parisian motorist actually drove miles to the campsite entrance so we could follow.

We would certainly use this site again

Although a busy road runs next to the site the showers etc are regularly cleaned and are heated a bonus as it was rather nippy during our visit at the end of Sept/Oct. A bus runs at regular intervals (payment required) from the camp site to the nearest Metro, this was so useful the biggest plus of the site. A shop sold the basics, the cafe seemed to be shut most of the time. The reception was ok and the site secure. We will use it again as so much to see in Paris.
