Stayed for 5 nights and loved it. This is a proper 'French' camping site for those who want something laid back and not overly fussy. Its a shabby chic site. Though more chic than shabby. Lots of trees and dappled shade. Toilets and showers are plentiful and although initially seem basic, are actually very efficient, e. G shower doors have two hooks, lots of hot water, loo paper supplied, always seemed clean. Pitches are big. Other reviews have said the English owners are aloof but actually, talk to them and you'll find they very friendly and helpful and hard working as are the other staff. This is a very good standard standard site, in a stunning part of France, though perhaps not for picky caravanners. Put it this way, its full of Dutch. And if you know your French camping, you follow the Dutch! Agree that play area is a bit naff.

Booked as a stop over for one night on the way to the South and for two nights on the return journey, however after one night decided to forego the prepaid deposit (which they said would be deducted on the return journey to ensure we returned) and stay elsewhere on our return.

Site is very tired and needs some tlc. Grass is overgrown and some of the toilets are broken. Some of them are tiny and your knees touch the door if you sit down. Generally needs to be freshened up.

Play area is ok, couldn't swim in the river as it was too high and fast but there seemed no easy way down to it anyway.

Pitches were an ok size but drainage was bad.

Staff were pleasant but the owners (despite rolling the fresh pizza dough) came across as pompous and unapproachable.

The local town is within easy reach with various local shops.

Generally the feeling was that it needs some tlc and that it is now a 'money cow'.

Found the whole site to be lacking any care. Grass was very long and when we enquired if it was possible to cut it, we were told probably not. Pitches are large and plenty of shade (35 degrees when we were there. Not possible to swim in river by site it is only about 12 inches deep. Sanitary facilities are old and some broken and not very clean. The takeaway food is cheap (8 euros) but very small portions, and nothing special. Bar is OK but expensive. We did not find the owners to be very interested in the well-being of the site.

Fantastic site. Situated next to a beautiful river, well laid out and roomy pitches. Plenty of shade and a nice bar (albeit not cheap but then France is no longer cheap!) and very good value take away meals on offer if booked earlier in the day.

The facilities are excellent. Clean, plentiful, no problem with hot water and no silly restrictions via push buttons or coin operated showers etc.

Lovely owners who will book up things like canoe rides etc. Very laid back.

A Baker's van comes around in the morning with fresh bread croissants etc.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful, with loads of places to visit.

I will definitely be coming back to this site and would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone.

We have stayed here for about five years and really like it. In the past we have camped but brought our own caravan this time.

It is very convenient, just of the A71 but in a quiet uncommercial area.

The camp-site is quirky, quiet and very clean. Different meals are available most nights.

Lots of play areas for children. Swimming is in the river which is accessed from the site. It is quite shallow (came up to my knees in most places). Nice little shop and bar with free wi-fi access which worked much better on this site than others.

Ebreuil is a lovely, quiet little village with necessary facilities - shops, banks, tourist info, pharmacy etc.

All in all an excellent site and excellent value for money.

We have just returned from 11 days camping at La Filature and couldn't praise the site enough.

We were made very welcome by the owners John and Jane. The toilets and showers were clean and well maintained as was the whole site. Each day a menu was put up of a delicious home made meal. You ordered it earlier in the day and then collected it freshly made and took it back to your unit to eat in your own area. Each meal we had was first class.

There was plenty of play areas for children and the river running beside the site offered canoe trips for the more adventurous.

The local village was just a mile away and had a small supermarket which was quite adequate.

In the area there is plenty to see but without any commercialism.

We have camped all over the UK and Europe and Canada and this one is definitely the best we have ever stayed on. It met all our needs and was more than we could have expected.

Thank you John and Jane for giving us a truly relaxing and happy holiday. All being well we will be back in 2015.
