This is a lovely family campsite. We were in the area without electricity at the top of the site. Even though it was the school holidays I have never had so much room, with the nearest other people pitching 20 metres away. It is a beautiful natural environment with wild birds, butterflies, stag beetles. But rather a problem with mosquitoes.

The owners are very helpful. They lend you a whole folder of info when you arrive. Some are pages of rules about the pool and recycling etc, but also lots of useful local info like which local supermarkets are open on Sunday.

All of the staff are Dutch, but they all speak English too. There are some great activities laid on, eg group campfire twice a week - they provide marshmallows for the kids, lamp procession around camp - all the kids decorated their lamps earlier in the day.

We stayed 5 nights. Some days we went out sightseeing eg Vezelay basillica, Grotes D'Arcy ancient cave paintings. But we also enjoyed relaxing at the campsite. The pool has a great view, but the depth takes a bit of getting used to. From 1. 7m to 2. 6m. They provide lots of woggles and floats, but still it made our kids nervous.

Overall a lovely campsite, but we needed better insect repellent.

A nice site set in a lovely rural location and quite easy to find by following the signs from Coulaanges-sur-Yonne through which the N151 passes. We were welcomed by the very friendly and helpful Dutch owners and allowed to choose any available pitch. The site is situated on a wooded slope and not all pitches are clearly defined but we settled on a level piece of ground towards the lower end of the site which gave us good morning and afternoon sunshine but, like the rest of the site, not much late evening sun. We also had a nice view of Andryes church through a clearing in the trees. This has an interesting clock which chimes double time on the hour! At the end of a long dry spell the pitches were bare of any grass and a little dusty but as we enjoyed only a light breeze throughout our three day stay this didn't prove to be a problem. The toilets, showers and washing up facilities were kept spotlessly clean and supplied plenty of hot water. In the low season the owners provide two excellent little services. Bread can be ordered by writing your requirements on a list hung outside the Reception and is delivered to your door the next morning and on occasional days it is possible to sign up for a one course menu which is then delivered straight from the oven to your pitch at your chosen time in the evening! All we had to do was sit at our table with plates, cutlery, wine and a table mat at the ready. Then, on time, a stainless steel, foil covered dish, was placed before us and we served ourselves - all for a total cost of 15 euros - and excellent food it was too!

There is a large Saturday morning market at Toucy, about 40 kilometres from the site, which sells pretty well everything. Vezeley, an historic old town based on a steep hill rising above the surrouding countryside and crowned with a huge basilica, is well worth a visit.

We stayed here for one night en route to the south coast so cannot comment on the local surroundings and things to do.

We found the Dutch owners very welcoming and helpful. We were lent an extension lead as our 25m lead was not long enough to stretch to the hook-up point.

Toilets and showers were very clean and plentiful washing up sinks, we never found a clean water point but I'm sure they were there somewhere!

Heavy overnight rain meant we struggled to get our caravan off the pitch as the water had not sunk into the hard ground leaving a muddy surface. We needed the motor mover plus the aid of a couple of strong Dutchmen. Due to the rain we did not see the site at it's best as it became very dark due to all the trees. I'm sure that it must be lovely in good weather though.

To sum up, we would use again for overnight stops, or possibly a short stay. Used ACSi card so only 15. 20 Euros per night.

This is a lovely site in a nice rural area. Nice friendly staff, site kept very clean as they all work hard.

Good area for bike riding. We also used the tennis courts in the village.

I would advise using rock pegs as the ground is very hard. Also insect repellent, plenty of bites!

Recommend a visit to Noyers sur Serein, beautiful picturesque village. Clamecy is also nice.

The toilet/shower facilities on site are excellent. Very clean, no queues. (Take your own toilet roll).

The pool is lovely but one negative is that it is too deep. The shallow end was above my head, I couldn't let my son go in on his own.

Truly beautiful site, terraced with wide spaced trees, distant views through the gaps, wild flowers including orchids, woodpeckers, owls, buzzards overhead. Really quiet and well kept, loos especially clean and showers untimed and free. Good night lights in the electric points. Plenty of children's toys and pool but what more can a child want than a wood to play in? Its a fabulous base for exploring the region and is ideal for country-lovers. Take a spike and hammer to get pegs into the stony ground and when wet leave slip-on shoes at the tent/caravan doorway as the soles will get a bit muddy. Lovely rural village close by. Canal cycling (2 and a half miles away) is superb - truly beautiful bits and in September it rains walnuts. Very good restaurant just off canal in Chatel-Censoir. There were several British there (9/2011), plenty of easy-going dutch, German and French. Great supermarkets in Clamecy 15 minutes away. Run by Robert and Henriette. A nicer couple hard to find.

We stayed here with our 2-1/2 year old son for five nights and were very impressed. The facilities were excellent and cleaned daily. There's even a bathroom specifically for kids with a baby change too which had rainfall showers! The pool was lovely and clean (if a bit deep and cold) and there's a kiddie pool with lots of water toys. Beautiful view from the pool. There's also a sandbox with loads of toys and a lot of playground equipment. The whole place is very kid-friendly. There are quite a few trees around the campsite and you don't feel like you're right on top of your neighbors. The owners are nice and helpful and speak English. The surrounding area seemed pretty quiet when we were there, but you can rent cycles from the campsite and go along the canal and there are some very pretty quintessential French towns nearby. There's a big grocery store only 10 minutes away too. We will definitely come here again sometime.
