Could not have chosen a more friendly and pleasant Campsite to spend our weeks holiday on. Very clean toilet block, lovely big showers and plenty of hot water, Washing machines rotary line very handy. Good Restaurant lovely swimming pool, An ideal place for children, dogs are allowed very dog friendly, Boulangerie in the Village. The Owners and the Wardens are very friendly and helpful, Close by is a great Zoo to visit. Puy Du Fuy, 50 Km away well worth a visit, In all a very pleasant and relaxing Holiday.
A really lovely site - the owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. The site itself is stunning with lots of greenery and pitches with enough privacy you didn't feel like you were being watched but open enough to be sociable.
The site is very well maintained with an army of workers gardening and tidying almost every day. The bar/restaurant is very good and ideal for a lazy evening. The pool is very well maintained and clean, the sun loungers are plentiful and comfortable - the umbrellas round the pool were a little sparse but then we weren't there at the busiest time so maybe more are brought out later in the season. The toilet/shower block is open and airy, fabulous showers with loads of room. Two washing machines and a communal washing line make for easy laundry days. There are some smaller activities at the site (badminton, ping pong, crazy golf).
Although we didn't take our dogs the site was clearly very dog friendly.
The site is quiet and despite being near a main road you don't notice the traffic noise (other than the few loud motorbikes which go by) The site is ideally situated, you can walk to the nearby village (5 mins down a little track so you avoid the main road) where there is a boulangerie and also a van selling melons. The town of Doue-la-Fontaine is five minutes drive away and has four supermarkets to choose from as well as a small town centre. Plenty to see and do within a one hour radius.
We would definitely visit again - in fact many people there were regulars which shows how good the site is.
Personally thought this site was brilliant, stayed only one week, but owners could not have been more helpful. The toilets were exactly as advertised, very clean. Showers very clean and spacious. Henrys bar was great for a pint of lager. It was empty of kids when we stayed but there seems like plenty for them to do. We used acsi card here. All in all one of the better ones we stayed at in 5 weeks in France. Plenty to see locally too.
Recently returned from a very pleasant stay at this lovely campsite. The pitches vary in size and shape but all separated by hedges and trees and none too far from the toilet block. Friendly owners and staff. Loads for children to do, though none on the site whilst we were there. Play area, crazy golf, boules, table tennis, zip wire, basketball, volleyball and the pool. The main pool is quite deep 1. 5m and was cleaned daily whilst we were there til it closed on 15th September. It is positioned well to get maximum sun so despite our stay being at the end of the season we were still able to enjoy a swim. There is also a paddling pool but this had been drained, presumably because it was low season. We only used the bar a couple of times and didn't have any problem with prices or choice of menu and enjoyed a nice meal there one evening. The reception area has a good selection of tourist leaflets and the owners are very knowledgeable about the local area.
Its worth mentioning that the site no longer allows charcoal barbeques. There are gas ones to hire but we thought the 10 euro charge (that does include gas) was a little steep.
My only criticism of this site was that towards the end of our stay the toilet/shower block cleaning became a bit irregular. A notice in the block stated they are cleaned daily at 11am and initially this was the case but not so at the end of our stay which was a shame.
Loads to do in the surrounding area. LOTS of local vineyards to visit and the zoo and Monday market at nearby Doue la Fontaine and the Troglodyte village at Rochemenier (6kms north of Doue) are all well worth a visit. Further afield we enjoyed trips to Angers, Saumur, Montreuil-Bellay, Chinon and Turquant. Turquant had a well signposted walk round the village (takes approx 2 hours) which was really informative about the local life both past and present.
We came upon this site in 2002, on our way back to Caen, the present owners had just taken over the site, only stayed a couple of nights, but what we saw was good, so good we booked a holiday the next year. We again spent 2 weeks in August 2011 the facilities are better and very much cleaner than most ( we generally use our 'vans superb facilities but when the sites are this good !)
Parkland features throughout the site, nice touches like Flower arrangements abound. There is a superb pool area (nice to see no drinks or shoes allowed in this area ) The small bar and restaurant has a good selection of beers & many local wines to taste, the menu is as expected, not vast but Hey! it's a caravan park not a Chateau restaurant. What was served us was good food served in a pleasant manner, the drinks we found were of a par with other local establishments Euro 2. 50 for a beer or glass of wine (an even better buy on the wine if bought by the pitcher ).
The site is situated superbly to enjoy the Chateau, Loire, Zoo and many attractions nearby. Looking forward to staying here again when in this part of France.
Great pitch, good pool, fab neighbours - we were happy here for a week. BUT - bar overpriced, 5euros a beer so we stocked up at supermarche and drank a la van most of the time.
Showers and loos big and clean but roof not attached to wall so drafty when weather not hot, push button showers with no water temp adjustment so you get what you're given.
Nothing in the local town but only a few mins drive up to Doue le fontaine, nice places to eat and the zoo is definitely worth a visit. Bread etc delivered in the morning if you order night before which was nice.
Owners seemed a little disinterested, ie beer prices, food menu very limited and uk pub style ie fish chips and mushy peas, not really what we fancied in August but each to their own. Didn't eat once as only 4 or 5 options and nothing we fancied plus expensive!
Holiday made by having fab neighbours who helped us put the awning up and who we shared drinks with a few nights, if we'd been alone I think we'd have left sooner. Thanks to them for being friendly campers and we hope they got home safe -we learnt not all insurance policies are made equal!
