We stayed at this site as a stopover on our way to the south although we would be happy to stay longer next time. The site was well laid out, with very clean facilities. The person at the reception spoke some English which was helpful. The municipal pool on the site looked really good although we didn't have time to use it. A short walk from the site takes you into Cluny which is a gem of a town and well worth a visit in its own right.
Stayed here for an overnighter on a midweek night in mid July.
Brilliant site. Reception was very efficient, you are given a pitch number, plan of the site with the barrier code, a full list of what is available on the site and a town plan. Also there is a blackboard with all the events which are on in the town for that week. The site was quite full but there was still one area which still vacant, possibly being saved for longer stays. As previous members have said the railway line is very near, however we didn't find it disturbing and the trains don't run during the night.
Toilet blocks were kept very clean.
WIFI is now available you need the code from the reception.
The municiple swimming pool attached was very busy. It is free for campers, again go to reception for a wristband.
All in all a very good site and we would definitely use it again.
This site is a gem. It is 20 minutes from the Autoroute de Soleil on the outskirts of the beautiful town of Cluny.
The site has easy access and two toilet/washing blocks. The reception is very welcoming, and they are straightforward for dealings. Only one improvement that I'd recommend - there was no Wifi.
The site is immediately next door to a pool complex run by the municipality - a diving pool, infant pool and a large swimming pool with loungers etc &(with surrounding gardens for picnics or lounging). Do not mistake the fact that this is a municipal pool for thinking that it might be a dreary urban verruca bath - it is a clean, well managed pool with a splendid view over the old town.
The town is a stunning feast to the eye. The old Abbey in the middle of the town and surrounding churches with medieval towers. Cafes, sandstone buildings, some quiet live music in some streets, roman remains, church history aplenty and surrounding green rolling hills. 6 miles north is the community of Taize - a centre for meditation in the Christian tradition around issues of peace and justice. Large nubers of young people from all over the world stay there - but visitors are welcome (musical meditation at just after mid-day each day, in the company of hundreds of young people)
The site opens on directly to a 40 mile tarmac (flat) cycle path which meanders through the valley on the site of the old railway line. Must be wonderful in low season when the weather is not quite so hot.
One reviewer mentions the TGV Train Track a hundred yards or so from the site. Yes it's there and yes they can be heard, but you'd have to be particularly irritated by noise for it to intrude on your holiday.
A glorious site in a great setting - and will return.
This site was perfect for us as we have a Motorhome. The facilities were clean and well laid out.The municipal swimming pool was directly linked to the site. The Staff were friendly and helpful.
Best of all were the cycle paths which were also accessible from the site. You could go for miles walking or cycling along the old railway lines that have been tarmacked over and the stations have been converted in to rest areas with toilets and refreshments.
Nearby it has a beautiful historic town to walk around with lots of interesting shops and cafes.
Large and very well organized municipal adjacent to the town outdoor swimming pool and sports complex. Site is gently sloping, but there are flat pitches for tents. Some pitches are open, some with hedges, most have services elect and water, on the pitch. There are two large sanitary blocks which have full facilities, and are well maintained and clean. The site overlooks the town of Cluny, and has a lovely outlook for the evening BBQ. There is a TGV line runs along the back of the site, with frequent trains, which could be a nuisance, although the trains make not much noise, and we got used to them very quickly, they are doing max speed at this point ( 150 mph ? ). There are cycle tracks at the back of the site, the swimming pool has discounted entry for campers, and there is tennis etc on the sports ground. The town has a full compliment of shops, restaurants etc, and there is an Intermarche at the top of town. Cluny itself is of Roman origin and is a site of exceptional historic interest. Far too elaborate to set out here, but for anyone interested, start with www.cluny.fr and a bit of research will turn up a mass of info.The French national shire horse stud is also in the town, organized visits are possible, or if you are dopey like us you wander round as if you owned the place, but I wouldn't recommend the approach in general. Cluny is in the Macon region which is very attractive, and nearby there are grottes, the hill of Solutre where in prehistoric times, hunters drove horses over the cliff to kill them for food, and for the wine buff you are in the centre of "macon villages" territory
