Great site, this is the second time we've stopped here and will definitely be back again.
As with many people we've used this site as an overnight stop, last year on our way to Italy and this year on our way back from South of France. It's ideally located going in either direction, easy to find, just a few minutes from the Autoroute and approximately 2 hours from Calais.
The owners have clearly put a great deal of time, money and effort into the site since taking it over and whilst some reviewers have commented that they feel the site is expensive (I personally don't think it is), the money they make is clearly being re-invested back into the site (such as the excellent new toilet block added over the winter of 2012/13). There are good facilities for the kids with the pool, trampoline, playground and exercise area, for the grown ups there's a pleasant decked area around the pool and bar area (with good quality furniture) and importantly for us they serve food until about 9pm at night (really don't want to be cooking or looking for places to eat after a long day driving).
The owners speak excellent English and we've never found them to be anything but friendly and attentive, this year for example we asked if they sold bottled beer that we could take back to our van (they don't), so instead they offered us a couple of pints and told us just to bring back the glasses in the morning.
We stayed at this site as a stopover on our way back home. We stayed here last year for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. This year, the owners have built a new sanitary block, swimming pool and are currently building a sauna and massage area. The villiage of Guigincourt is quiet and typically French. It has a small Carrefour supermarket, with fuel and a rail station, with services into Reims (about 40 mins) The owners are friendly and helpful and you will receive a nice welcome. The pitches are large and level and we normally find one near the river, for the dog. The site is fenced and there is a code for the security gate, so you can walk along the river. Plenty of UK tourists, with a smattering of German and Dutch. It is a nice, friendly site, with nice views of the village and riverside. There is a take away service for frites and pizza and the owners will also do steak or chicken if you wish. They have a poolside bar with quality garden furniture so you can relax. There is a playground for the children and plenty of open space. I was not aware of any crime problems and I certainly did not feel unsafe. This is a lovely site and the owners work really hard so you can enjoy your holiday. I will definitely use it again.
Well we have just left and this is a wonderful site well run by the owners. They are really working hard and have built new toilet block. They are friendly, extremely helpful and I would give this site 10 out of 10 except for the following.
We planned to stay for five nights. The night we arrived we had our clothes stolen out of our car. Lucky only clothes cos other campers had jewellery, cash, cameras, phones pinched. Gendarmes involved and owners could not have been more attentive. Then to cap it all thieves hit again last night (4th night) and broke into two caravans whilst their owners slept.
This made us all feel very vulnerable and I could not be more concerned for the owners cos we certainly won't be back for this reason
