Stayed at this site from 11th August 2013 for one week in our caravan with 2 children aged 7 and 11yrs.

The site was immaculate and the pitches were very spacious and private. As people have said the site is rural but that suited our needs. There is plenty of things to do and see within about 10-15 mile drive and the cycling in the area is fantastic.

The children's entertainment is second to none and they keep the children amused for hours with different themes.

A local market attends the site twice a week and this is mainly wine, meat and local produce such a fresh fruit and Veg. I can not recommend this site enough and will look to return when next in the region. The swimming pool is a 25 metre x 10 metre pool and the cover is over it at night to keep it warm. In the day the cover retracts fully giving you a great area to sunbathe.

It is very quiet by around 1030pm at the latest and this lasts through until about 9am.

The bar is expensive and the food is not great but if your planning on self catering or eating out then its a great place for a holiday.

We spent 5 days on this site in our motorhome and our friends rented a Tithome on the next pitch. The site is very clean and tidy. The staff are some of the friendliest staff I have ever met on a camp site. They clearly enjoy their jobs, their English is great and they couldn't me more helpful. The site is very large with free trampolines, bouncy castle and play areas for children. We did not have children with us but watched the staff entertain the little ones in the evening at the side of the bar area. There is a large heated pool with ample loungers and chairs available and a small separate children pool with a slide. There are also tennis courts. There is a small bar area which serves food (not great quality) and drinks. There is some entertainment in the evenings which we enjoyed. There is a small market once a week where locals sell wine, meats, fruit/Veg etc at good prices. There is Wi-Fi for 7 euros per week but only works in the bar area or on certain pitches nearby. The shower/toilet blocks were spotless and spacious and we never had to queue. The site is well looked after and I would recommend to others to pay it a visit. It is a short drive away from Angers and Sanmur which are nice places of interest to visit.

Stayed at this campsite for four nights 13th - 16th August as a stopover down to Landes region.

Arrived early morning as caught ferry overnight to Caen and probably got to site about 11:00am but no problem checking in. First impression was that it is in a very rural location. You are pretty much a good drive from anywhere and particularly a supermarket.

Lovely site overall and extremely quiet, we noted there were a lot of empty pitches and pretty much had a quite a lot of choice. As we had a motorhome 7metres we looked around first as they provided us with about four options and then came back to reception to say we chose a pitch pretty much next to the bar area/swimming pool etc. I was a little concerned it may be noisy but the bar tends to close about 10:30 as pretty much nothing happens there and entertainment I believe is two nights a week. We never saw any of the entertainment so could not comment on this. We ate at the bar night before leaving and the food was good though the bar is expensive and that is probably why there is no body there.

Could not find a motorhome disposal or water point, backed up to a tap on an empty pitch to fill with water.

Pitches are a little bit sloping in parts to a lot on others and high hedges separate a lot of them. Some pitches have water taps on them, avoid these as it tends to be not just one tap but four and these overflow onto your pitch. Under the tree pitches are very dark out on the edges of the site and far away from toilets etc. If you needed them at night. If you liked a get away from it all pitch these were pretty much your ideal place. Electric cables will also need to be long on some pitches.

The pitch we were on was quite noisy during the day with the green behind us for kids to play on and bouncy castle and trampolines to the side of us. We did not mind so much as we had two children 6 and 10. They enjoyed these facilities including a good park, climbing frame etc. Excellent for cycling around camp site to which my youngest enjoyed the freedom as it feels quite safe there as most people there have youngsters and adhere to driving slow. However some of the delivery lorries coming in could do with a lesson in speed limits and children so beware early mornings and your kids on bikes.

Heated swimming pool was great and covered when cool or raining, good size but as people have mentioned before you do get some unruly unaccompanied children there which spoils things. It is also open quite late too which is good as well as an aqua aerobics class about 5:00pm. No slides or anything for children over about 5 at the pool and these were only in the toddler pool.

Our kids did not use kids club but it seemed to have a good following and kept the little ones entertained.

Toilet blocks were fine, as mentioned earlier it was quiet on this campsite, not what I expected that time of year, so no issues getting showers etc.

Reception was excellent with lots of information and very helpful too. A bit cryptic about the ordering of croisants etc. As early morning it is at reception then at the bar then back at reception! This is also the same of the delivered items you have to collect the next day. Shop was very basic so do not expect to survive on this at all and it is a trek in the vehicle to go get stuff so stock up well if you don't plan on moving off site.

All in all and excellent site for families, so quiet at night and mornings, most people not surfacing until 9:00am even with little toddlers as no sound to wake people up.

Would not return as our oldest (10 yrs) pretty much was at the maximum age of this site unless they introduce more things. Teenagers who were there generally looked bored or got up to silly screaming and mischief early evening but nothing you would say was an issue.

Stayed one week. Lovely campsite in a nice rural location surrounded by vineyards and beautiful little towns. A bit of a trek to the nearest town but not too bad. Site was spotless and the facilities are great. Supermarket a bit limited but ok for emergencies. Pitches are large and kept spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. We had some issues with late night noise on our second night but a quiet word with management saw this dealt with swiftly. Nice pool and although we didn't have any young children, you could not help but notice how well catered for children are with their Kids Club and other organised events. All in all a great site. Will return again.

Stayed here for 9 nights July/August and this was our first time camping abroad. I think we grew to enjoy the site more and more as holiday went on. We were on pitch 155 having rejected the 2 allocated pitches 135 and 136 that were too undulating caused by tree roots and too sloping for 2 large tents. Eric was helpful in trying to find a suitable on the booked up site. Pitch 155 was huge fitting on our 2 large tents an Outwell sliding canopy, a trailer and with a squeeze the car it was really sheltered and private with mature hedges and a stone wall. Our pitch was really tranquil although a long walk to the toilet and shower block. It was so peaceful in the evening with the sound of crickets and the odd peacock and the sky was really clear for star gazing which was very relaxing. We lay in till about 9am most mornings as it was so quiet.

The kids club seemed great for younger children and the site would definitely suit a young family. I did not think there was a lot organised on site for children aged over 7. I think a football and volley ball tournament was organised weekly for under 12ís and these were cancelled because of lack of attendance when we were there. My children played table tennis (bring your own rackets), crazy golf (free but a bit rough), hired go Karts and used the pool. I found my children 9 and 10 were getting on each otherís nerves if we didnít get off the site each day to do some site seeing. There are some lovely walks along the Loire River and lots of places to visit. The site reception has plenty of brochures. The local area is really pretty with so much to see and we really enjoyed see some of the local culture.

The pool was nice but rather busy and had no life guard so the odd child got a little bit carried away at times. The bar was pleasant for a change of scene in the evening we went when a singer was on. The circus that visits the site is good I believe the price is negotiable if youíre willing to make an offer!

Showers and Toilets were clean and hot and we never had to wait. If you have young children it would be a squeeze to fit both of you in a shower cubicle.

I found everything about France expensive my Euros did not go far. The fresh bread to order on the site was £2. 50. The local market in Brissac Quince was much cheaper than the supermarkets to buy fresh salad and vegetables. A small market also visits the campsite a couple of times a week, we did some wine tasting and bought a couple of bottles that were pleasant to drink.

LíEtang Park is only 10 minutes away which the children enjoyed. The campsite linked to LíEtang looked nice when we walked around but I surprised how easy it was to access it unchallenged, I think I would have felt a bit vulnerable if weíd chosen that site.

I have to say Parc de Montsabert has been the best campsite Iíve stayed at, so very different from UK camping. However I canít imagine ever going back the drive is just too far I think it was 14-15 hours campsite to door. We used the Euro tunnel and it was a good 6 hour drive from Calais towing a trailer.

We have just returned after staying here for 3 weeks. I mostly agree with some of the previous reviews.

Firstly- the kids club was excellent- my children aged 6 and 8 loved it. It was free, 2 hours in the morning with sometimes an activity in the afternoon such as giant table football. There was a mini disco most nights which they really enjoyed. The Kubb game mentioned on previous reviews was only played once a week and there was no sign of Bob.

The pool- this had a retractable roof which was a bonus as the weather was mixed while we were there. Sometimes it was very boisterous and on occasions there were unsupervised children present which was a bit dangerous and annoying.

The bar- drinks were quite expensive so we didn;t go very often but it was nice with a live band twice a week. The circus was good fun.

The park- this was a big hit with my 6 year old and she was able to have a bit of freedom as it was very safe and the kids enjoyed riding their bikes. In fact my daughter finally got the confidence to ride on her own as the paths were so good.

The toilets- these let the site down a bit as they were too few in number although were cleaned regularly. I had to queue for a shower a couple of times.

The pitch- we had a large pitch and it was very private with hedges on 3 sides with just trees in front- pitch 121. This was good in a way but didn't allow for much socialising.

Overall we liked the site but 3 weeks was a little too long as we didn't find much to do in the local area and we all missed the beach so I don't think we will be returning.
