This site is a gem. The facilities were very good. There was free wifi in the information marquee. Most importantly the pitches were large and well kept. Not for those who like large and noisy sites but it still has everything for a good family holiday, swimming pool, bouncy castle, zip wire run, sports facilities etc. Supermarket five minutes drive away. The Bio park Zoo is breathtaking. Site takes acsi card as well!

One of the best campsites we have ever stayed at. The owners were helpful and friendly. You could order bread for the next morning. There wasn't much to buy in 'the shop' but there didn't need to be as just 5 minutes up the road in Doue la Fontaine is a massivveuper U. We could swap our freezer blocks into the freezer any time we wanted and for no extra charge.

Perfectly located. We visited the Biopark and Terre de Rose. Both brilliant. Saumer is only a short drive. Very peaceful.

The pitches were a great size (and flat) and were edged by hedges and so our tent was in dappled shade all day, perfect. The toilet block was always clean with a supply of toilet paper. The showers were amazing.

The swimming pool was lovely, perfect temperature. There were play equipment for the children: ping pong, crazy golf, bouncy castle, zip slide, volleyball net, swings, slide. To play all you had to do was ask in reception for the equipment. No extra charge.

Conclusion: An amazing campsite in a great location. Would definitely go back.

Reviewer: Joodfirst 1 review from this member

Have stayed at this site previously in 2014 and there are differences between now and then, I have also written a review under Firstjood.

The first noticeable difference is the ownership of the site, it is now French owned.

The facilities are pretty much the same (see previous review) and apart from a couple of minor gripes the cleanliness of the toilet block remains good, gripes are cobwebs in corners and bird droppings down walls and doors.

There didn't appear to be any wardens on site and the cleaning was done by the owners.

Reception and the bar/restaurant have been changed and redecorated and the pool is now heated, better on cooler days.

There is a large marquee for socialising, book borrowing and WiFi (which remains free), at the top of the site.

We were here for 2 weeks and saw only one wine tasting evening and one food tasting evening, priced at 15 for sampling bread and filling it seemed a little pricy (didn't attend). There were no discos, quiz nights, karaoke nights. The menu includes pizza (lots of choices and well tasty), steak, fish and salads. Plenty of desserts there too. Breakfast can be ordered and bread is available by preordering from reception (boulangerie in village had closed down).

There is a football pitch and children's Bouncy Castle on site and bicycles can also be hired.

The only other noticeable difference is the lack of cutting back of hedges between pitches, these also have large brambles and can catch you unawares.

Given that the cost of this site is 32pn for unit, 2 persons, electricity and tourist tax I expected a little more entertainment.

There also appear to be less holidaymakers this year than in 2014.

As regards locally, it remains much as in 2014, as well as the bakery going the restaurant in the village has changed hands, new owners, new decor and new menu, plat du jour (5 courses) 12. 80.

What a gem of a campsite! As soon as I arrived I was made to feel very welcome by the receptionist. I was allowed to choose a pitch that I wanted (given a list of those that had been reserved), I chose a pitch that fitted my large 6 person tent, an area to set up table, chairs, gas cooker and with plenty space for my family car to also be on the pitch.

The site is adult, child and dog friendly (one couple even had their pet rabbit on a lead!). The site is classed as rural but has just a short walk along a footpath to the boulangerie that also sell basic staples as well.

In the village itself it has a number of vineyards that you can go sample their wines. There are great bike rides for all the family straight from the site entrance.

The site is ideally located for many big attractions such as the Puy du Fou, Bio Zoo, Cadre Noir, Loire River, Saumur, Angers, dou la fontaine to just mention a few.

The site has a lovely outdoor pool with sunbeds which is cleaned daily and a childs paddling pool in high season. There is a great bar that was open in the afternoon for a couple of hours as well as in the evening. In the evening there is food served in the restaurant which is reasonably priced and good (I loved the moules and frites night they had), served by cheerful friendly staff, they had entertainment on some nights and the warden who did the quizz night was hilarious!

The toilet and shower block I would go as far to say are the best I have come across on a campsite and kept impeccably clean (had loo rolls too)

To finish off I want to say a big thank you to the very friendly and approachable owners who helped me out with a problem I had. The wardens were very friendly, helpful, always had a smile on their faces and always willing to help.

Friendly welcoming site with plenty to do for the kids - park, zip wire, crazy golf and table tennis. Events are held at the bar on a frequent basis, although late in the season when it's quiet they may not run.

The sanitary block is modern and clean with huge shower cubicles. Bar food is simple and reasonably priced.

Didn't use the pool as the weather wasn't quite warm enough but then we were there at the end of the season. Looked clean and inviting though.

Be aware this is quite a rural site, and apart from a cafe and Boulanger the nearest shop is a couple of miles up a steep hill (I wouldn't want to cycle up it!)

Also if you opt for EHU you will need the two pin converter plug.

Wardens on site were lovely, lovely people. Two went over and above the call of duty when our car broke down and when a jump start failed to fix it drove my husband to get the parts to fix. Wonderful help in a stressful situation!

Attractions nearby are good quality and quite varied. Within an hour you have futuroscope and puy du Fou, both of which I'd recommend, a zoo within 5 minutes' drive and lots of beautiful chateaus and vineyards very close by.

Would definitely return.
