This site is just over the border of Indre into Limousin, it is located close to Boussac. To say it’s “In the sticks” would be an understatement, Boussac is a 5 Minute Drive away and it has the standard, Bakery, Butchery and Mini Supermarket, They have an average sized Market on Thursday’s and a Night Market on Friday (in July anyway). If you are looking for Big Supermarkets eg. Auchan, E’Leclerc and Lidl they are around 25-35 minute Drive away.

The site has a small shop which is stocked primarily with Lidl goods that have a little ‘Convenience Margin’ added to the price. Bread can be ordered via reception for delivery the next day and they have a small bar and restaurant on site.

The site is huge and has around 145 Pitches varying in size and location, A lot have dedicated water supply and Grey water drains, you can select pitches with different Amperage supply as well upto 20A which is rare to find in France. Our pitch and it would appear many others had drain access for emptying Toilet cassettes as well, rare on any site. When you check-in you should note reception shuts between 12:00 and 13:30 (even though they did open early for us) as this didn’t seem to be visible on the web site or correspondence that we received. All these little ‘Plus Points’ certainly add up to the beginning of a very positive view of this site. On check-in we were very warmly welcomed and were given loads of information along with answers to every question we posed them with. Full payment is on arrival we paid 37 euro a night for the 1st two weeks of July for a pitch approx 10m wide and about 25m deep with 16amp supply, Own water, grey and Black waste with a very over a stunning Lake. We were escorted to the pitch and shown all the water and waste points. We couldn’t have been looked after more.

Around the site, we’ll start with the Toilet Block as everyone likes a good Toilet to talk about, well here you won’t be disappointed, It looks to be recently built and has separate sides for Male and Females, with Toilets, Showers, disabled facilities, even down to toilet seat covers if you want. They are cleaned throughout the day and we never saw dirt on the floor or a toilet without paper they were kept to an excellent standard. In the same block as the toilets is vast array of sinks for washing up all with foot pedal taps so you don’t have to keep turning taps on and off(Look like a fine idea) You also have washing machines, tumble dryer, ironing board Freezer for Ice Blocks and an information room with all the leaflets you could ask for.

The bins, rather than central large bin areas that you have to drag all your rubbish up to they have opted for a unique idea of placing a general waste and recycling bin every 3-4 pitches and then by the Toilet block is glass recycling handy to get rid of all the bottles the morning after and Cardboard recycling is by the Reception. They even want old bread and veg peelings to feed to the animals (More on them later)

Other things around the site include a couple of play areas for Kids (2-10yrs), a small farm area with Goats, Rabbits and a Donkey. The pool area is very good although looked like if the site got busy the pool could get over run as their was limited Sun loungers and space, however the many pool is mounted on the hillside with an infinity edge looking down the valley, there is a small toddlers pool, an area with loads of fountains and water spraying everywhere to amuse any child small or not to so small and nice water flume into a dedicated pool (care should be taken if you are a big kid as the bottom of the pool is quite rough and the flume will fire you out at some speed and elbows can get a little grated). The bar and restaurant have unusual opening times so it's worth familiarising yourself with them. We dined in the restaurant just on one occasion and found the service exceptionally friendly and attentive, the menu’s are simple but of an excellent standard, 4 courses 22. 50 or 2 courses for 17. 00. They also do a small takeaway service as well should you so choose. And finally one of the key features of the site is the beautiful lake with Chateau mounted behind it.

So far everything I can think of is positive about the site, negatives are few and far between, the only thing that affected us was the WiFi as we were on a pitch right at the edge of the range it was a bit patchy, good enough the read emails and facebook but don’t bother with iPlayer or Netflix.

Would we recommend here, Yes, Would we come back, Yes without a doubt. It is probably the best site we have stayed at in France for facilities both range and quality.

We have just returned from a 2 week stay on this site (Myself, my wife and 3 year old daughter) and I have to say it is one of the best sites I have ever stayed on and this is our sixth visit to France.

The site is within the grounds of the chateau and unlike many others there is more green space than pitches so it never feels crowded. The plots are huge (2 times larger than what I would normally expect).

The pool and slide are modem and clean and we spent a large proportion of our time there.

Food on site is very good with the Restraunt booked up fully most nights but they also do Take Away which is excellent.

The local town of Boussac is 5 minutes drive away with two small supermarkets. There is also a nice walk from the site into the town which only takes 40 minutes. Most importantly market day is Thursday and this one didn't disappoint with all the great local produce you would expect including a reassuringly smelly cheese stall!

The site is lovely and quiet on an evening with all noise gone by 10 at the latest. It seems to attract nice families and the three of us made lots of new friends as families came and went. I liked the fact that there was a good mix of nationalities with what seemed like an equal number of French, English, Dutch and German.

The lake is a nice feature with Pedalo, Canoe and Boat hire very cheap (about 5 euro an hour).

A lot of people were using the site for an extended stay over on the way back from the south of France and it is clearly well located for this.

The chateau owners are very actively involved in running the site and they and the staff are very friendly and it has a nice family feel.

A great site and a credit to the people in charge we will certainly return in the future and have already started to recommend it to friends.

We spent 3 nights here on our way back from the South.

The site is absolutely beautiful, and we didn't want to leave !

We have a twin axle and I had requested a large pitch on booking. The pitch we were allocated was absolutely huge, and I didn't see a small pitch on the site as we had a wander round, so no worries about pitch sizes !

The toilet / amenities block is immaculate. We didn't make use of the bar or restaurant but they looked nice. The pool area is small but very well situated, and our teenage girls spent a nice day there.

The whole feel of the site was really lovely, and we loved the fact that the pitches are not set out in straight lines, and some of the front ones have great views of the lake and the chateau.

All in all, a really relaxing 3 night end to our trip, and we booked before we left for a longer period next year.

After a two year gap we returned here. Still as well managed as ever. It now accepts ACSI cards which makes it wonderful value. The sanitaires block is the best I've seen in France. Thee pool has wonderful views over the lake and the country side. There is fishing in the lake. The animals are still there for the children, goats, donkeys rabbits. Boussac Bourg as pleasant as ever, especially on market day, Thursday. Spacious pitches, many with views of the lake and chateau.

Well worth a visit.

Return visit to this lovely site. Had pitch near lake for 3 euros more than our camping cheque price. Lovely outlook from wherever your pitch is I would think. Just as good as in 2009. Pool wonderful. Toilet block with dish washing and ironing facilities exceptional, clean and spacious. Visited Abbe de Peneboit nearby again and Boussac, pleasant little town. Excellent value with camping cheques though we were told they are going over to ACSI next year as the site gets a better deal. Would return again.
