Stayed at this lovely site for one night on our way further south. It's a nice quiet site, away from the main roads, with a lane along one edge. Pitches are a good size, mostly flat with electricity. Rates were reasonable. Wifi is available at the restaurant for those eating a meal only. We were quite near to the restaurant and daughter could get wifi on her tablet from our pitch.
Small but functional municipal indoor swimming pool is right next door to the site and free for campers to use, you could either lock up your clothes or take them poolside. There are plans on the walls for a new pool which when it's done will be lovely. The site does have a small playground for younger children.
Restaurant was reasonably priced and food very nice. Bread is available to order in the morning.
There is a nice little walk along the river directly downhill behind the site. The town centre is a little walk away, we didn't have time for a wander round but on taking a wrong turn trying to find the site, it did look really nice.
Toilets are in a couple of different blocks, showers in the main, small but maze like block. Take your own toilet roll.
A nice little site whether for a one night stop off or for a few days.
Lovely friendly site, warm greeting from the bouncy happy Madame. No English, but we managed very well with her words and ours. Very wooded site, large pitches, but if you want satellite TV forget it, too many trees in the line of sight. Lots of sunshine came through, so a pleasure to sit on the pitches. The toilet block, always clean, is a maze. You find new parts of it each time you visit. Bonneval market on Mondays well worth a visit. Oh and once we saw a red squirrel. There is a municipal pool next door for campers use if requested a ticket is issued. A walk along the river is lovely, but hazardous for lone children.
An excellent experience. Quick response to my email then a very warm welcome on arrival from Madame. No English spoken but we managed fine!
Out of season so we could choose where to pitch. I think all pitches have hook up.
We close unwisely as we went in the trees which was delightful except we needed to use our satellite (for Internet so we can work) and it wouldn't lock on. If you want satellite you need to turn left past reception!
We had lovely entrecôte at the restaurant on site, and were able to order bread and scrummy pain au raisins for breakfast
Loos etc were clean. Need to take own loo paper as we find seems normal in France.
Nearby river has steep drop so children would need keeping an eye on.
Bonneval looked interesting and we will certainly return for a longer visit.
Stumbled across this site by accident whilst looking for a stopover travelling south. Really friendly welcome. The owners speak little english but speak french slowly to help you and we had no trouble making ourselves understood with our 'holiday french'. The site has a great play area for kids, use of the municipal pool just outside the site (which my 8 year old son and other half raved about - they loved the starter diving boards!)Electric hook up, hedges to give privacy and really good sized plots. We had our campervan and a huge awning and there was still lots of space! The river is lovely and right next to the site; there are picnic tables along the bank. The town is pretty and worth a wander. We didn't do the river trip as only stayed a couple of nights but worth a look as its so picturesque. Close to use as a base for visiting Chartres or Chateaudun to the south.
As previously mentioned the toilet/shower block is HUGE.
Site was really quiet while we were there even though peak season and we would definitely stop here again.
Stumbled upon this site after refusing to stop at our previously chosen site. Wonderful greeting on arrival, we explored site on foot to select a pitch. Lots of choice, shaded or sunny. You pay on the afternoon before departure, so no problem with open bookings. Main sanitation block as previously mentioned was like a tardis, I was still finding new parts of it up until our 5th and last day. Was always clean with hot water. There are also smaller toilet blocks on the perimeters. Lovely woodland walks along the le loire river. The snack bar was inexpensive and created a lovely evening out and was completely unintrusive if you weren't there. Bread could also be preordered for the following morning.
Locally, a visit to the village of Bonneval is a must, your are able to hire electric boats and tour the town from the water. For the more enegetic you can hire canoes/kayaks or like us just enjoy the tranquil setting with a picnic in the locality of the canoe/kayak club. Chateudun is well worth a visit, we visited the caves which then lead to a discount on the electric boats in Bonneval.
We also just enjoyed the peaceful tranquillity of the site itself. They do have a website camping-bonneval-28. Mon site-orange. Fr. Site fees were very reasonable 15. 85 euros for two adults including electric, also included complimentary swims at the adjacent pool (again this was unintrusive). Fantastic stopover being only 4 hours from Calais, I am already planning for next year incorporating this site on out and inward journeys.
