Reviewer: Robinsnorman 2 reviews from this member

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,

What a hidden gem. The welcome from Mike and Cath is top class. A cold beer was in hand within minutes of arriving. Choice of spots, very very clean and welcoming site. Great location for cycling in the local area. I just hope they get permission soon for the shower block and this will be one of the best sites in France. Local pub is a must visit.

What can I say except wonderful, if you like peace and quiet this the place for you, Mike and Cath are two of the nicest people we have ever met, and not forgetting Mikes lovely mother, Bessie.

It would be impossible for any camp site owner to be more helpful, they work from early morning to dusk, cleaning and improving the site.

I would add that the site is also Mike and Cath, s home so they do expect people to respect the peace and quiet, and in my opinion they are very successful at maintaining the lovely peaceful surroundings that I know most people enjoy.

This was our second visit and this coming September may be our third.

We had a lovely warm welcome, and were shown around the site before pitching. We had a fabulous pitch. Really big with shade and sun in different parts all day long, so the best of both worlds. The weather during our stay was quite changeable, and after a terrific storm Mike came around the site to check everyone was ok, (and to see if any damage had been done to the pitches so that he could put right). Nothing is too much trouble for mike and cath, and they were great hosts. They had had some trouble getting planning permission for their proposed shower and toilet facilities so units had been hired in. Not the greatest units, but clean and perfectly useable. Although now the planning permission is through for the new facilities I am more than confident that these will be as well planned and thought out as the rest of the site. And kept neat and tidy too. The above deck splash pool is great, wifi which is available from most pitches. There is also a pond with ducks etc. And the use of things like dartboard and TV inside a barn building. The surrounding area is lovely to explore. We had a great time, and definitely hope to visit again soon. Nearby there is a lovely restaurant where lunch is under 14 euro, and they also have a takeaway pizza service on Friday and Saturday nights. Mike and Cath are very knowledgable about the area so you can find out anything you need to know from them.

My wife selected this campsite (she does all the research!) and as usual she was spot on! Of course it depends on what you are looking for in a site but if tranquillity and beauty are on your list then this spot has it in spades!

The site was easy to find though I would warn caravanners and owners of large motor homes to ignore the first turn off to Obterre in St Flovier and go a little further to the heavy lorry route turning. (About 200m after the first turn). If you are coming from Azay Ferron there are no problems at all but the turning on the edge of Obterre for those coming from Charnizay would not be fun with a caravan.

Anyway - to the site. There are a small number of excellent flat pitches with power hook ups and some but not all have good shade for part or all the day. In summer you would probably prefer those pitches if they are free. Power has French type sockets but they are NOT reversed polarity so one less complication to worry about. Mike, the site owner reckons their EDF electricity supply can be unreliable but we had no problems in the three weeks we stayed there.

Showers - at the moment Mike is engaged in a long running struggle with the French Bureaucracy to try and get a shower block built. I believe permission has finally been granted so hopefully these will soon be in place. For the present however, fret not, as there are a number of apartments and a gite on the site and Mike and Kath open the unoccupied ones up to campers and they are kept spotlessly clean. There is also a washing up room and access to washing machines and tumble driers via Kath. They also sell the local wine which I believe is excellent and they will add the cost to your bill!

Whilst we were there Mike was in the process of erecting a new splash pool. This was a source of entertainment to many though not Mike as he is a perfectionist and the thing was not cooperating though by now I imagine it is in place and operating.

The site is perfect for bird watching or as a base for lazy country walks or for setting out to explore the lovely local towns and villages. The camp site was entirely occupied by Brits while we were there but beyond that we hardly saw anything other than the local French folk who are very friendly (obviously not been Dordogned by foreigenrs). The whole place exerts a kind of magic on you, my wife felt it was a medieval landscape and completely unspoilt by the 21st century.

Possible drawbacks?

No clubhouse or children's play area (plus for me personally)

Very noisy cuckoos and hoopoes (Brilliant!)

Off the main tourist routes. (another plus so far as I am concerned)

Finally - Mike and Kath the site owners and Mike's mum Bessie make everyone feel very welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. We are going again, sooner rather than later!
