Reviewer: Argente4 15 reviews from this member

Stopped here for three nights on our way back from the Dordogne at the end of July. We had phoned the day before to check availability since it was peak season.

Very nice site. A mix of nationalities, busy, but not too noisy. At about 10. 30pm each evening it all quietened down and stayed that way until about 8am the next morning.

Sanitary facilities were unisex and the toilets had proper seats and loo paper in each cubicle. There were individual sink cubicles and the showers were the push button type, water pressure and temperature both good. The facilities were always clean and I only had to wait a few minutes for a toilet on one occasion.

Didn't have EHU so can't comment.

We paid for Wifi but it was very slow.

Pool was nice, the outside one was rather 'fresh' at first but not too bad. They also had a covered pool which was much warmer. There was also a paddling pool for little ones. Other facilities included a sports field and a tennis court (free, but you had to book it at reception), and table tennis.

There was a small shop that doubled as a takeaway serving pizzas and snacks. The pizzas were ok and reasonably priced. You can get bread and croissants in the morning without pre-ordering. There's a bar and restaurant across the road but we didn't use it. There's also a small adventure parc here.

Supermarket with fuel are a five minute drive.

If you want to visit Tours by public transport the bus stop is close to the site which takes you to the tram stop where you can travel to the city centre. Make sure your ticket is valid for the tram as well as the bus, or buy separate tickets for each. We had a bit of confusion when our ticket was checked on the tram, and had to pay again! Alternatively some of the tram stops are park and ride. Ask at reception for a route map and bus times.

We stopped here on the way down to the Dordogne and we had a great time! Very nice site and very friendly Staff. We were told where the available pitches were and to pick the one we liked and let them know.

The site is in a beautiful area and fuel and supermarket are very near.

We had a lovely walk around the scenic lake and then got a takeaway from the site cafe. Very nice and just what we wanted.

Thanks to all involved as we had one of the best 'stopovers' since we started using the caravan!

Used this site as a stop-off, but stayed for 4 nights. Very pleasant staff who were happy to use English. On arrival we were given a colour coded map and told to choose any vacant pitch we liked, paying 2 per night on top of the discounted price for water & waste facility.

Did not use swimming pool(s) but both, covered and uncovered, did look very good. Sanitary facilities, in my opinion were both plentiful and clean. This was the only site out of three we used on this trip which had seats and paper in the wc's, not a huge deal but appreciated.

At the discounted price we paid per night for the standard of the facilities on this site, it is extremely good value compared with our own Caravan Club charges. How is it that this and other French sites, considering the extremely short season most have, can charge what they do and prosper when our British Clubs with in some cases year round opening say they need to charge so much more?

This is a lovely site. Staff are helpful, little shop is well stocked, pools are clean and warm, playground, football pitch and tennis court kept the kids happy and there is even a little train at 6 every evening to take the kids on a ride around the site.

You are able to choose your own pitch which is a decent size - shade or sun, grass or woods but be warned, whichever you choose there are midges to bite you EVERYWHERE!

The site is very quiet apart from a Saturday night when the resident singer is on in the Auberge over the road. He has a large sound system and starts at 8pm for around four hours. You either put some earplugs in, sit outside your tent with a bottle or three to appreciate his wailing or get yourself over there and join in with the various Tom Jones renditions.

The site is near a beautiful lake if you are feeling energentic enough to jog or kayak, with lots of cycle routes to local villages. Tours, the main town is a short drive away and you are handily based for visits to Amboise, Blois or the many Chateau such as Chenonceau or Villandry. There were also enough vineyards and wine tasting caves around here to keep me very happy!

My only complaint is that there weren't enough toilets so at busy times - mornings and evenings - there was always a queue to use toilets, showers and sinks.

Would we go back? There are lots of campsites in this area so we like to try different ones but we may well do, because this one is nice!

Used this site as an overnight stop so didn't get to fully use it.

Positives -

Location great, lake nearby looked pretty & nice walks around it

On arrival they give you a map & tell you which colour pitches are they type you have booked & let you drive round & choose

Staff friendly & english speaking

Hedges between pitches so feels reasonably private

Decent shop & cafe selling great pizza on site.

Large woodland playground for kids on site

Wifi access could be paid for - we didn't use it as Orange one was cheaper!


I guess its possible we missed one but we only found one facilities block right by reception which was all unisex! Only 3 toilets, 2 showers & 3 sink cubicles for a huge site! Not sufficient in my opinion for 177 pitches(!) but to be fair we didn't queue but that is likely to be because we were up early! It looked clean but toilets smelt of urine!

Wouldn't return due to wash/toilet facilities being poor.

Very friendly greeting and most helpful reception. Plenty of sites to choose from with shade, if required. Good size pitches, all with electricity. Showers hot with clean toilet block. Swimming pools both excellent with plenty of sun loungers. When it came to cycling into Tours cycle maps were quickly provided and it was under 10 kms of easy cycling. Tours itself was a pleasant surprise with a range of very interesting shops, all closed as it was bank holiday! Shop on site had a range of bread each morning and food each evening.
