We chose this to be able to visit friends locally, and because it looked like it had facilities to keep our 7 year old happy (pool, playground, potential bike rental, little snack bar etc). We were planning on staying for 5 nights.

First impressions were that the reception folk were very helpful, but reception had a jaded, slightly unloved feel to it. The site is landscaped and wooded, with holiday lodges near the pool and playground, and camping pitches further into the shaded, tree area. This was separated into seasonal pitches and ordinary pitches. Seasonal pitches looked old, run down and ramshackle, which added to the air of neglect.

Don't get me wrong, flower boxes had been placed regularly at key points, but it feels like a 1970's Butlins holiday camp that needed a good injection of cash and a good lick of paint. It has great potential.

I can't comment on the pool or the snack bar as we didn't go. The Loos and washing facilities were cleaned regularly. The cleaners were polite. The porcelain was spotless, doorframes, windows etc were dusty and cobwebby.

The nearest water pipe to us had a blocked drain, the bin overflowing, the pitch we were on stank of sick and had plastic bottle tops, general rubbish, silver foil, and 'smoking paraphernalia' (not tobacco) all ground into the dirt.

The camping area was less than half full. The majority were French seasonal, and there were some Dutch overnighters and one English caravan overnighters.

On arrival we had to drive through a crowd of campers who made no attempt to move or to say hello.

The French campers/holidayers were loud, rude, swore a lot and their behaviour was intimidating even when not directed at us. I have never been scared on a campsite but I was scared on this site. I felt like I had been transported to a rough part of Montpelier. (I grew up in a rough inner city area in UK but have lived in France). My French friend (female) and I were hassled/intimidated deliberately on the way to the loo by men playing boules. We went around their game politely but got lots of rude suggestions and our way 'barred' in drunken jest. We were well and truly 'clocked' (outfit, car, us) and the body language of some of the men both when we ran the gauntlet to the loo and back, and of those who pitched near us confirmed that we should move on as soon as possible.

We left the following morning and we would not recommend this site

First impressions of this family run site were our lasting impressions. VERY friendly and welcoming staff who spoke excellent English. The site has mainly Dutch campers who tended to use the site for stop-overs on a longer journey. The toilet blocks were thoroughly cleaned twice/day. The newer of the blocks was the largest which had spacious shower cubicles and combined shower/basin cubicles, toilets were separate, there was also a washing up area with dedicated sink units for clothes rubbing. The snack bar on the lake proved popular and portions looked of a decent size although we didn't eat there. There was a fishing lake supposedly with pike, perch etc. Although my hubby didn't catch more than a couple of smaller samples of tench and perch. The site has 2 pools, not of an olympic size nor were there slides, but it was clean and the water quality was tested regularly. The site is well placed for visits to nearby Trier in Germany, which is well worth a visit, it's also well placed for the Moselle and trois frontieres (France, Luxembourg and Germany), with Luxembourg city centre only 35 minutes drive from the site. Access to the pitches is quite tight and larger units will struggle without a motor mover as manual intervention is required. Pitches in general are on the slightly smaller side compared to other french sites and larger outfits may struggle to fit a caravan, awning and car onto the pitch, however ample parking is available opposite the reception area. This site offers exceptional value for money costing only 23 euros per night (including 8 amp electric hook up). All in all a good site which we would visit again if we come to this region of the Lorraine.
