It felt strange to have all British fellow campers, but it made a change. Mike, Cath and Bessie were perfect hosts during our 11-night stay. Our pitch was perfect being large, flat and with shade. The loo and showers in the portable buildings would have been adequate but it was a bonus being allowed access to the bathrooms in the unoccupied studios with their excellent facilities. They are offering these facilities until new ones are built now that they have been granted planning permission. My OH very much appreciated the televised coverage of Le Tour onto a large screen in the barn. Enjoyed days out and about, particularly Loches on Saturdays for its market, fine architecture and restaurants - went twice. The 12. 60 lunch in Saint Flovier at Auberge de la Source was excellent value for four courses and wine. Would definitely use again particularly as it is just over four hours from the ferry terminal at Ouistreham. Bit of a pain having to go off site for bread on the days when mobile tradesmen do not call. Definitely one to use again.

My son and I recently spent 5 days at Le Cormier, using it as a base to watch the Tour de France. It's a wonderful place, quiet and Mike and Cath couldn't have been more welcoming. Fabulously large, flat pitch with easy electric hook-up, clean loos and showers. We were greeted on arrival by Mike and walked around the site. As the Tour, Wimbledon and the Euros was on at the time, they had set up a screen in their barn. It was nice joining other campers watching the sport - not noisy but a bit like watching TV at home with one's mates!

Daily visit to the campsite of the baker and on one afternoon the butcher was a bonus. We brought our bikes but only got out on them once! However, perfect cycling countryside and Mike provided us with a map of possible routes. Chateau and wine country so lots to do in the locality.

I am sure we will return - we would have loved to stay for longer after finding this absolute gem.

Well we thought about keeping this wonderful site a secret but can't be that selfish. We arrived early October with the intention of travelling on to Spain but we found the site and area really nice and really handy for our two dogs so decided to stay until near the end of January.

We were very lucky with the weather as it stayed mild until well into December. We managed to cook outside both Christmas morning and New Years day.

The site owners are extremely friendly, helpful and obliging. Nothing was too much trouble.

The site is really well maintained and managed.

The bakers van visits three times a week, even Christmas day, the butcher calls once a week.

There is a great choice of supermarkets fairly close by in Loches, also two weekly markets well worth a visit.

We were lucky and visited two Christmas markets and two huge car boots/markets.

So many places to visit from the site, historical, lakes, pretty villages, towns.

We are going back to the site in the winter this year on our way to spain and will return again early 2017.

Bessie the camp commandant is Mikes mother and a lovely lady who lives on site who is always happy to have a chat on her daily walks.

Very very highly recommended site as a stopover to the South or Spain or longer.

We used this site as a stopover on the way down to the Lot valley and on the way back. It is well placed to access from the motorway system from both the north and south. As you approach the site you do end up on small country roads but once you arrive it is well signed and easy access into the site itself.

Within a few minutes of arrival Mike met us and made us feel welcome. The site was still busy in August as expected and nearly as busy on the return in September. Despite that we were offered a choice of pitches on both occasions all of which are large pitches with plenty space. Some are shaded and some are a little more open but all look to be level and easy to access.

All pitches have satellite connection to Freesat services which saved me unpacking my dish and the wifi signal is probably the best I have come across in France.

Before parking up Mike took us on a tour of the site and facilities which are very good and would suit families with children or the more mature like ourselves! He explained the lack of a modern toilet/shower block was down to issues with planning. This, he hoped, would be resolved in the new year so those visiting next year may find a new facility in place. The temporary facilities are clean and functional and perfectly adequate. On the return visit in Sept the apartments on site were unoccupied and these were available to use as an alternative shower and toilet facility, a nice touch.

For those with dogs, just out of the site are numerous paths so it's easy to walk the dogs off site. This is a lovely country site, off the beaten track and if you want a quiet peaceful time then it is ideal. Locally there is plenty to see and do and shops within a short drive.

We looked into what there was to do locally and as we enjoy walking this appears to be the ideal location for that and Cath confirmed this when we talked on our return. With that in mind and the site being spacious and well serviced we are now planning to visit for an extended stay in 2016 and are looking forward to it.

We came across Le Cormier after a previously recommended site was unable to accommodate us; having just come to the end of a week's stay with them how happy we are now that was the case!

The owners are two of the best hosts/campsite owners we have come across during all our years of camping. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were also brilliant with our two children aged 13 and 8, even introducing them to the cat and kittens. This was one of those rare occasions when we really felt we had been welcomed into the family.

The site is centrally located for easy journeys to most of the major attractions of the Loire. We went to Loches, Amboise and Chenonceau Chateau, all of which were fantastic places to visit (particularly the latter which we spent a whole day at). We also spent a really enjoyable afternoon at Bellebouche where we were able to swim in the lake and just generally take it easy all for the cost of parking (4. 50). However, on the slight downside, be ready for a drive as all of these, with the exception of Loches, took between 45 minutes and an hour in the car to get to.

The site is very flat with huge pitches (we have never seen one so large) and despite temperatures for us regularly into the mid-30s we were able to find some shade and keep cooler. As mentioned before Mike and Cath could not do enough for us, and everyone else, regularly dropping by just to check we were okay and, on one night when a thunder storm was forecast, coming round to warn us all and to offer us the barn to store bikes in etc. This couple work incredibly hard seemingly never stopping work but they always have time to make their guests feel welcome. For the children the plunge pool and the barn (with table tennis and darts) also provided some gratefully received cool down time and light relief.

The toilets and showers are currently housed in portacabins on site but I understand that planning permission is going through for more permanent fixtures. However the portacabins are, again, kept clean and fresh.

All-in-all this is one of the best sites we have ever stayed on and we are sad to be leaving. If I was ultra critical it would have been nice to see more French campers as nearly everyone staying there was British but this did not at all detract from the great time we have had and all at an extremely reasonable price. In fact, if you were nervous about the language barrier of camping in France, this would be a brilliant site to visit.

I'm sure that we will return at some point.

Mike + Cath really work hard for your enjoyment, nothing is too much trouble. We booked in advance and got immediate responses to e-mails. Large pitches with electricity, good wi-fi and water near by. Toilets + showers in Portacabins (but very clean) while Mike fights for planning permission. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed a fab days cycling around the local area. No attractions or shops close but that is how we prefer it.

Highly recommended,
