Clean sanitary blocks and plenty of hot water in showers and basins. Toilet paper provided, but not soap or any way of drying your hands. Weirdly have French Virgin Radio playing 24 hours in the sanitary block, which got a bit irritating after a while.

Playground is only tiny, and has sand around it making it quite mucky. But games room is nicely equipped and there are two Boule Pitches as well.

The swimming pools are really the centre piece of the place - really nice, heated outdoor pool with a good waterslide and another indoor pool which is really warm and has a little slide in it. There are shallow areas and deeper areas.

The whole site is pretty small, which makes it nicely friendly.

Bread, croissants etc can be ordered for the morning, 0. 90 for a baguette. There's also a small general shop, everything rather overpriced as you might expect, but good for those essentials you need at short notice.

Freezer available (Free) for refreezing your ice-blocks for cool boxes.

Parts of the site are sloping, and the ground is rather hard and stony. There are quite a lot of young trees providing some shade, and the area round the swimming pool in particular is planted with lovely flowers which are full of bees and butterflies.

Pitches separated by hedges, but not overly hemmed in, the hedges have gaps in.

There's a restaurant and a takeaway. Pizza to take away is from 8. 50.

Nearest Supermarket is a SuperU in Neuille Pont Pierre. It's not massive, but has most things. The campsite owners put up a list of local markets locations and times, well worth visiting at least one.

Good spot for exploring the Loire Valley, and also not far from the A28 so you can get there pretty quick from Calais.

The village is rather lovely despite the occasional agricultural smells from the cows.

For the first time ever, we're considering returning to a campsite a second time.

We have used this site once before and were impressed by the friendly welcome of the owners. The site is in need of a little TLC and would not take much to make a huge difference. It was very wet whilst we were there and the site roads were in a bad state having been washed away and full of large potholes. The grass on the pitches was long and being wet made things difficult. The infrastructure looks as if it has been built by a not too good DIY enthusiast.

The restaurant is excellent, offering a good choice at reasonable prices. I do like the site very much and the above negatives are made to be constructive.

A small-ish, sloping campsite not far from Tours and the A28 autoroute. The pitches themselves are mostly flat, grassy and of a good size. There are plenty of water points.

There are several unisex toilet blocks. They are of a good standard, though the floor was constantly wet.

The site is on the edge of a village which did not appear to have any commerce. There are plenty of places to walk dogs without encountering much traffic.

The on-site restaurant serves reasonably-priced food to eat in or take away.

Used this site for a stopover on our way further south. Near to motorways. Clean and pleasant site near a small village. Access to the site is via a steepish hill. Reception friendly and helpful. Wifi access was excellent on our pitch, priced at 2 euros for 24 hours.

Cannot comment on restaurant or swimming pools as did not use.

Would use again for a stopover. ACSI site costing 14 euros when we visited.

Contrary to previous review, we found this site very well kept. The pool area was weed free but there was a wobbly tile. There's also a gymn and a jacuzzi. Hedges newly trimmed, and tidy touring pitches of good size. Huge water pressure at taps and very clean loos and showers.

Cycling is ok on the roads around but paths more for walking than biking. Village has a bakery. Internet access E2 per night or reduced for 7nts. ACSI site

Overall an excellent site

We stayed at l'arada parc for 11 nights in a mobile home. The mobile home was great. It was spotless and I think we might have been the first people ever to stay in it as everything was new.

The welcome we received on site was also fantastic and any contact I had with the staff was very positive.

The site is a little shabby though. The pool area had weeds growing between the tiles and one or two wobbly tiles. The weather was bad when we were here so we mostly used the indoor pool. This was a great facility but once again could have done with a good clean/update. The shower tray of the shower beside the pool was dirty throughout our stay.

The children's play area was also a little run down. It obviously hadn't been weeded this year and could generally have done with an update.

All in all I think this campsite would be ok for an overnight stopover but is not up to a longer stay, especially if you have young children.
