Reviewer: Louise Latimer 7 reviews from this member

We stayed at this site for just one night on our two week road trip, and both our teenage sons and my husband and I, fell in love with it immediately!

It was boiling hot when we arrived, but according to the instructions at reception, we found our own spot and pitched up, right next to the river.

After putting our tent up, we went for a dip in the river, my husband was adamant he was only going for a paddle, but within 30minutes he had the spare air bed inflated (obviously I don't recommend this as it specifically states on the side not to be used as an inflatable!)and they were cruising down the small rapids!

We spent about 3hours in the river, then ordered pizza from reception. But got a lovely surprise when we picked it up, as we then had to take it to the outside pizza oven for it to be cooked. The pizza's were huge, yummy and great value for money.

There was plenty to do whilst waiting for pizza to be cooked, including table tennis, Boules, a little shop and a reasonably priced bar.

The reception/bar staff were lovely and all spoke enough English to understand what we were asking for. The site has been owned by a lovely English couple for the past 30yrs, so they definitely know what works.

The facilities were clean and quirky with lots of loo's

and showers.

The bread van came around in the morning so you could get your supplies.

There was a big storm in the morning, but as it had been predicted, the owners were very safety conscious and moved anyone under the big willow tree encase of lightening strikes!

Lovely site and good value for money, 32. For the four of us.

Would 100% come back to this site.

We found this delightful site in the ACSI book and the caravan club directory. It is run by a very pleasant, helpful English couple who have owned the site for 30 years.

The pitches are a very good size offering plenty of shade. The toilet facilities are spotlessly clean and plentiful for a site this size and the site is very well situated for touring the Auvergne.

The site is situated by the river and there is easy access for a paddle. For those who like to swim a short walk to the village, beside the municiple site will afford access to the beach which enables swimming in the river. Walking, canoeing and horseriding are just some of the activities available in the area.

The site do an excellent take away meal every evening which is very good value for money and extremeley tasty. I would recommend this site for a short or long stay particularly as it is easily accesible from the A71.

This is a lovely site in a peaceful location a few minutes walk from Ebreuil. It is owned by a very pleasant english couple who provide a different takeaway meal each night. These were good value for money and delicious. There is a small bar with reasonably priced drinks.

The pitches are large and some shaded as the site was once an orchard.

You can paddle in the river which was very cooling during hot weather, you can take a short walk to the village where there is a park with access to the river for swimming.

There are a few restaurants in the village, market on Thursdays.

Nearest supermarkets are in Gannat not far away.

The site facilities are quirky including a bathroom, washrooms with marble worktops and gilded mirrors in some!

All were spotless and had plenty of hot water.

We love this part of France for its tranquillity and secenery, there are pleasant drives to the local gorges, Vulcania park or Vichy.

We loved the site and recommend it for long or short stay, as it is not far from the A71.

There is a children's play area and laundry facilities as well as a lounge with fridge and tv.

ACSI is taken.

Great site that we only found while parked in an Aire checking out the Acsi app. Easy access from motorway. Arrived at lunchtime but a notice on the door of reception told new arrivals to go & find a pitch then check in at 5pm. Lovely big pitches by the river, some with shade or partial shade - take your choice. Fairly level so easy to pitch. A water tap by each pitch. It was so lovely just listening to the river tinkling so close by - very peaceful. Plenty of clean toilets & showers, yes they are old but you can't keep building new blocks when there is nothing wrong with the existing one! Toilet paper provided & clean. The little bar was nice to use while waiting for your takeaway meal which is a great idea on a stopover. We intended just 1 night but stopped 3 on our way down south. Good free wifi near the reception/bar with chairs in the shadet so a nice touch. In the village you had a small Spa shop, but we went over to Gannat where there were several large supermarkets. Gannat a nice place with plenty of bars & restaurants in the square for a spot of lunch. The English owners were friendly & informative about the area. Overall a lovely peaceful site that we would definitely use again.

What a great campsite - we loved the quirkiness, the welcome and the location. We parked right by the river for one night and stayed for three! The owners, who are English, were helpful and gave us frozen bottles of water as the weather was very hot. They make evening meals to buy and take away, provided in ceramic dishes which you return. The food was so tasty. My husband had the meal every evening!

The toilets and showers are clean and plentiful (more are locked ready for when the site is busier). Not a turkish-style toilet in sight and toilet paper provided! Bliss!

Great to have a little bar on site and a small shop too. People gravitated to the bar for a wine or beer early evening. We met so many friendly people there and we loved paddling in the river to cool off.

Ebreuil is very quiet. Has a helpful tourist information office, interesting church and while we were there, an art exhibition. The market is on Thursday and a little life comes to the town. We loved cycling into the town on the back road.

We will go back to Filature!

When I see such negative reviews ( there are a couple here), I sometimes wonder if we went to the same campsite!

We called in en-route from the south without a booking. Arrived in a huge thunderstorm and torrential rain. Owner told us to park anywhere we fancied and check-in with him when the rain had abated. This we eventually did. No problems. Decided to try their home cooked take-away. Only 8 and VERY GOOD SIZE PORTIONS and excellent taste. We found the small bar to be cosy and not unrealistic prices.

The heavens opened up most of the night with very heavy rains. In the morning, we expected to see a lake outside, but the pitches had drained very well and driving on and off was NO PROBLEM.

We liked the site so much that we decided to stay another night. Yes, the showers and toilet buildings look a little dated but they work perfectly well, are very clean and are most adequate. Unlike most French sites, they even supplied loo paper! A bonus.

We found the English owners to be friendly and most helpful. They were not aloof as someone else on here commented and we enjoyed our chats with them. Other people staying seemed to enjoy the site and the owners.

Highly recommended.
