Reviewers - mature couple with campervan

It's some years since we stayed here, and we found they are having some major improvements.

The entrance used to be in the centre, and the facilities were beneath the municipal swimming pool at one end of the site. Now the pool has had a major redevelopment and the campsite is having a swanky new reception cum facility block built near the entrance. The building is up, it appears to be waiting for the interior to be completed.

So, at present, the entrance is at the lower end near the municipal pool. The first part of the site is rather narrow and on a bit of a slope, with rows of smaller pitches facing each other. The reception is in a portable cabin higher up. Then at the top where the site goes back away from the road, there is a lovely wooded area with many natural pitches amongst the trees, divided by high hedges so it is possible to find a private area. There was plenty of grass when we were there, and these pitches are nice and flat.

When we arrived at lunchtime the reception was closed, so we chose a pitch, and the warden came to find us when he returned. Check in was quick and efficient, we were given a map of the town.

The sanitary facilities at present are housed in portable cabins, separate for men and women, and all nice and clean. Only problem was at night, it was dark in the vicinity, and the electric was off in the ladies loos, so I needed a torch. Showers were nice and hot, and lights worked.

A very small facility building which says it's for disabled still remains, and the only washing up sink is outside this, however the water was hot enough.

Because the site is up a steep hill, it can be a bit of a trek on foot into town. We found using the steps and paths the best, rather than the road, and it's very pleasant in the woods on the cliff side.

Adjacent to the campsite, at the top of the hill, is a church well worth a visit. There is a town trail, and at the bottom of the cliff below the campsite is a river source, which gives an opportunity for bathing.

There are plenty of places to eat in the town, and there is a supermarket just outside.

We enjoyed our stay here, as we have done in the past. I have marked it down because the facilities are not finished.

This is a pretty good site. Toilet facilities are at one end and can be a bit of a walk but they were clean when we were there. Pitches are a good size but some on a bit of a slope. Swimming etc. Just about on site.

The major advantage is the proximity to the town. A fairly steep but pleasant walk through the woods. The town is interesting and has some good restaurants - the tourist office was particularly helpful. There is quite a good supermarket on the further side from the campsite but it is a bit hidden. This is an excellent site for a couple of nights break in the long trip south and also as a centre for exploring the region.

Recommended.
