This site didn't live up to expectations.

It is situated in a small village that has a bar, a small shop and a local produce outlet, which is well recommended for the comedy value alone. The nearest supermarkets are about 15 minutes drive away.

The welcome was curt and unenthusiastic although other staff encountered were helpful and friendly enough. The shop has all basics, fresh bread can be ordered every day, the snack bar has 2 dishes offered, pizza and chips and sausage and chips. Free wi-fi and TV in the bar.

Toilets and showers are unisex but there are no toilet seats!They are clean in the mornings after 7am but unfortunately do not stay that way due to the actions of selfish people and woe betide you if you need to visit the toilet before 7am, the vomit encountered is horrible. Hot water is a big problem due to the reliance upon solar power. If it rains don't expect a hot shower which also have ridiculously short running times. The longest running time I could get was the first shower on the right in the main block; five seconds. Washing up was always done in luke warm or cold water.

Some pitches are incredibly tight to get into and some are also very small. This can be due to the trees that grow in the middle of some pitches! You may need a long lead for EHU as it may be on the other side of the service road. There is no feeling of space due to pitches being back to back, so little privacy despite hedges.

The 'absolute silence' rule from 10pm is not adhered to and we found it very noisy well up to midnight on several nights. This may be due to the transient nature of most visits, just 1 or 2 nights.

There is lots to do if you're a young child such as the swimming pool, petting farm, games room, play area etc.

Cycling in the area is excellent with lots of well marked routes. We cycled to Mont St Michel, the cheapest and easiest way to do it. You can leave your bike and then catch the free bus over the causeway or cycle over and leave your bike at the end of the causeway, which is not encouraged but we did it.

There is a plethora of places to visit in the area, lots of lovely small villages and towns and although the Normandy beaches are a long day trip they are worth making it, as is Bayeaux.

If you're looking for somewhere to watch the 2016 Grande Depart of Le Tour, I recommend a different site. It could be wonderful but it isn't.

We wouldn't the site again although we will return to the area.

We stayed here for a week, to take in 4 stages of the Tour De France. A great little site with all facilities you could need. Clean hot showers, clean toilets and good laundry & washing up facilities. The pitches were of a really good size, flat and well kept. Plenty of electric hook up points and adequate drinking water taps dotted around the site. The weather was fantastic, so the pool was very welcome, every day. Again, the pool was clean, tidy and has a bar attached to it.

The site shop was fairly basic, but all supplies could be bought locally very easily. Fresh bread was available to order each day, but there was a boulangerie about 1/2 K down the road. Site is well positioned for touring and in a great area for cycling. Will definitely stop at this site again.

Perfect for a three-night stay for a visit to Mont St. Michel, Avranches and the beach at Genets. Lots of people using it as a stopover for one or two nights on their way south, presumably. Surprisingly few Brits, lots of French and Dutch.

Toilets not as fresh as could be, and remember to take as much paper as you need into the cubicle - the dispenser is outside! Showers lovely, pool great and bar/restaurant perfect for venue - friendly service and good pizza and ice cream. Free wi-fi tops it all off - meaning I am writing this review on site!

Stayed here for 2 nights in May using the ACSI card rate. Pitch was a decent size with hedges around it. Electric point was a little further away than we would have liked and at the front of the pitch. That meant that we had to park at the front of the pitch which was a little strange. We didn't use the pool but it seemed well liked. Shower facilities were okay. The restaurant was closed when we were there and disappointingly, the bar closed at 8. Especially disappointing when the bar is the only place you can use the wi-fi. The shop was reasonable and the staff were very helpful. We don't have any kids but it felt like lovely facilities for them, including the animals (donkeys, pony, goats, chickens). The local town of Courtils was dead as a dodo. There was a bar but with no one in it, we decided to give it a miss so can't give an honest review about it. So all in all, this felt a little remote and a site we would only use if we wanted to go back to Mont St Michel.

This was a busy site with lots of facilities and lots of open space for recreation at the bottom of the site. Each space is a little tight, however, and in August it was quite noisy at night. Our children loved the pool and the 'no baggy shorts with pockets' rule was not observed. The shop was very good and very reasonable. The staff were very friendly. There was a bar in the shop area and to the side was a very decent, simple restaurant with reasonable prices. The toilets are unisex which was a bit of a shock for our children and very, very smelly. The showers, next door, were fine. This is a good, fun, family site which we only used because we wanted to see Mont St Michel. We should have stayed another night. Not the sort of site to stay on if you like peace and quiet.

Just returned from a 'tour de France' and stayed here for 3 nights - and watched the 'tour' go past.

Prices of course had gone up for the tour coming through (29 Euros) per night including power.

Showers were clean, we never used the pool ( little cold). My eight year old had a ball, playing in the play park and the football pitch.

All in all, good site. Downside? The shop could be better stocked as the shop in the local town was hardly open.

If you are planning to so the tourist bit in Mont St Michel, be aware that its 16 Euros, to park a motor home. Tip, leave your vehicle in the car park for the supermarket and walk or cycle over !
