The campsite is well situated near to the river Somme, with easy access on the cycle route to Amiens which is approximately 5k. The staff are helpful and speak good English. Bread is delivered daily to the site. All facilities clean, toilets, shower block and washing up, hand washing facilities. Easy access for the Somme battlefield sites. We loved it.

The site has a good location just 3 miles from the centre of Amiens. It is located by a local park and surrounded by lakes and a river. This can mean there are a few midges about!

Welcome was good, particularly as we arrived early but this didn't pose a problem, we pitched straight away. There was always an English speaking person on duty. Fresh bread can be ordered for collection at reception on a daily basis. Lots of local information available in reception and staff were always willing to fill in the gaps.

We didn't use the cafe but it did have very limited opening hours and menu. There is no shop but there are plenty of supermarkets are within easy reach of the site.

The site does have static caravans and lodges, so caters for all types of holiday maker.

Pitches are large. There is no over crowding. There is a feeling of space which aids relaxation. The EHU can be a problem if you do not have a long lead. There is plenty of shade from trees as well as wide open spaces.

There are separate toilets for men and women but shared showers. Both were kept very clean and there was always hot water both in the showers (push button but a decent time lapse) and with the more than ample washing up facilities. There is no soap dispenser in the toilets.

The cycling in and around Amiens is very good and it is nearly all off road into the centre. Amiens itself is a pleasant city and there are plenty of places of interest to visit.

The journey to the Somme Battlefields and all the towns of interest including Albert and Thiepval is an easy one, taking about 30 to 40 minutes depending upon where you want to go and which route you take.

Most stay for 1 or 2 night stop overs but on reflection I wish that we had booked a few days longer than the 4 nights we stayed as it was a very pleasant site with lots on interesting places nearby.

Having been really spoilt with lovely campsites during our tour round France, I was pretty disappointed with this one. It was 'fine' but that's about it. And considering it was the most expensive one we stayed in, and four star rated, I expected more.

The toilet block was too small for such a large campsite. Everything was old and tired, the play areas being three bouncy rides in a sea of mud.

The snack-bar is open only Wed-Sun in the evening. However, they did freeze our blocks for free.

The non-electric tents are right down one end, as far away as you can be from the snack bar etc and there aren't even any water pipes there, you have to walk to the next section. We felt a bit like the poor relations!

The location is superb for the onward trip to Calais and Amiens itself is well worth a visit. I'm just not sure I would choose to stay here.

We made an overnight stop at this site last week on our way back to Calais, as we have used it previously. The setting of the site itself is pleasant and the Reception staff polite but the washroom facilities need much attention. We noted the following:- out of two blocks only two Gents toilet cubicles were in operation for the whole site, which was quite busy (we reported this to Reception). On the Ladies side both disabled cubicles were locked and the hand dryer out of order. The unisex showers and washing cubicles were reasonable but only one light above the sinks was working in the block we used. The Reception office was fine but its exterior lacked the 'welcome' factor and looked as if it had been boarded up! On arrival we were told that the Restaurant was open but it was displaying a 'Closed due to technical problems' notice. A lady made a phone call and then assured us it would be open and the notice was duly removed by her. Obviously no-one had kept them informed either way. We ate there and had a choice of 2 meals or alternatively a Take Away. It seems such a shame that this site is being allowed to deteriorate when it has so much potential.

Used the aire here as a stop off point. It was OK, but nothing special. Access to city was fairly good. The city itself is lovely and well worth a visit.

The aire itself is flat, if a little narrow, but it was relatively quiet.

Sadly the staff working at the site were rude to us and our children (despite one of us speaking fluent French!). Perhaps they don't want people using the aire? Given the treatment we received, we shan't be coming back and would certainly not recommend this site to others.

This site is on the edge of Amiens but it has security features of a city centre site. The gates are locked shut overnight.

We received a warm welcome and English is spoken by some of the staff. There are information leaflets in reception and we were invited to choose our pitch.

Each grassy area is 'fronted' by concrete so it would have been possible to move your van onto hardstanding in inclement weather. The pitches were not particularly private and the markers were not too specific so pitching and electric hookup was a bit random.

Only one toilet block was open and this was not as clean as we would have liked.

Despite the number of units on the site, (certainly about three quarters full), there was no bar, tv room, shop or friterie. Disappointing, really.

There are lots of places to walk, though it is a long walk into the city. Catch the bus if you don't have a dog. The drivers don't always let a dog on, so we had to content ourselves with riverside walks - you can walk for miles!

The site is only a short distance drive from Albert, Thiepval and all the Somme battlefields. As always, near a city, there are supermarkets and industrial estates close by.
