Used this site as a one night stop over on the way down to south France. Mixed toilet block with the toilet paper outside the cubicle so remember to grab some on the way in. Toilets all clean and showers hot and powerful. Site clean and tidy pool was a great plus after the children had been in the car for 6 hours no shorts allowed as in most France sites. Arrived at 4pm and soon after all overnight hardstanding full. Man at reception spoke excellent english but also helped me along with my dreadful French. Not a cheap site but very easy to find just off the motorway. A bakery van calls at the site in the morning great for in car food for the last leg of the journey. We definitely would use again.
Visited this campsite over the French bank holidays. Was fairly busy despite being at the beginning of the season.
We did not have an electric hookup and were sited right opposite the toilet block - which isn't as bad as it sounds! The toilet block was discreetly camouflaged and set far enough back from the main thoroughfare to not be an issue.
The pitch was very spacious, and we comfortable held our 4 man family tent (Vango Albany 400).
As it was the beginning of the season, only the unisex facilities were open. Facilities were clean and well appointed, however, none of the toilets were stocked with toilet paper. Please note, this is not due to an absence on the owners part, they just simply don't have the toilet roll holders in the cubicles. So don't forget your own!
There were also a couple of washing machines and a tumble dryer for use.
In addition, there were a few sinks for laundry use, and for washing up.
We didn't get to use the swimming pool as although it was briefly open during our 3 night stay, the owner was completing some repair work. It did look very clean and compact.
The local village was very pretty and if a Vide Grenier is on during your stay, it is well worth a visit just to have a look.
The reason for the lower Customer Service rating was due to the attitude of the owner when I reported an incident in the unisex bathrooms. Although the matter was resolved, the initial response was less than satisfactory, given the high standard of the campsite and the pitch fees.
Stayed at this site for a couple of days on our way south. Agree with people about the high hedges, it did seem to make the pitch claustrophobic, but other than that it's a lovely site. The sanitary facility was the best we have ever seen on a European site, spotlessly clean toilets and showers, with plenty of washing up/laundry sinks together with washer and drier. Our pitch was very near the swimming pool, and we loved the hustle and bustle of the youngsters enjoying themselves. As a couple we have stayed on 'adults only' sites, and we know which we prefer! The town close to the campsite doesn't have much to occupy you, but Le Puy De Dome was brilliant. We walked to the summit, the view was well worth it, with hang gliders taking off below you, and a view of the surrounding volcanoes and Mont Blanc 100s of miles in the distance, perfectly visible. Clermont Ferrand with its cathedral built from volcanic rock was well worth a visit. We found the site value for money, but we got it at ACSI rates - 16 euros per night. A really lovely area which we would love to explore further on another occasion.
We stayed here for a few nights this month and were disappointed. The high hedges (well over two metres) made the pitch feel very enclosed and the pool was tiny with very little opportunity to find shade.
The site is pleasantly located in a beautiful area but, because of the hedges, you wouldn't know this without leaving the site. The facilities are clean and the staff helpful but I would not go back since the prices charged for a pitch are so high and nearby municipal sites offer better facilities for less.
We stayed here for three weeks in August and it was excellent. The staff, a Dutch family, were always polite, helpful and accommodating. The pitches were excellent - 100 square metres surrounded by tall hedges which provided shade or shelter during wet weather (the locals said it had been a poor summer this year.)
The bread van that visited every morning delivered newly baked bread, croissants and cakes - delicious!
The staff that worked with the children were kind, imaginative and kept them involved.
The large shower block was state of the art; there was always hot water and they were kept spotlessly clean (they were cleaned during the night and by section so that there was no inconvenience.)
The surrounding countryside and villages are lovely, there is a swimming pool, there are local tennis courts, a playground and 'Vulcania.' Clermont-Ferrand and Issoire are less than 30 minutes away. The campsite has an arrangement with a canoeing club for campers to have a couple of hours canoeing each week,for approximately 20 euros, with instructors.
We really enjoyed our stay.
