We are a couple in our 50s and stayed here for one night on our way down to Spain and again on our way back. We found it very pleasant and would definitely use it again.
As the site is in a forest we weren't at all aware of there being an industrial zone nearby. The only environmental issue may be the proximity of a couple of lakes/large ponds and therefore mosquitoes. They weren't a huge problem by any means but we did get bitten a few times here, more than at any other place on our 3 week holiday.
Loos - English style, paper provided, unisex, outdoor, kept very clean. Site wasn't anywhere near full when we were there so suspect that provision may be slightly insufficient if site at full capacity.
Showers - clean, some queuing at peak times, push-button, v short intervals, adequate hot water, not enough space for stuff.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
Pitches - variable size and accessibility, private and separated by hedges, v shady, ground quite rough, imagine it would be quite muddy during heavy rain.
Shop - v small, no fresh veg. Didn't use restaurant or pool.
The town of Rambouillet looked very pleasant and there is a big Carrefour nearby.
There are lovely forest walks and bike trails so would probably stay a few days next time to make the most of it and to visit Rambouillet.
Stayed here 4 nights. Thought we'd booked over the phone but on arrival our booking was recorded as unconfirmed - at a different Huttopia site! Despite this the staff proved very helpful, squeezing us in anyway. We had wanted to be fairly near Versailles which was about 30 minutes drive away, close enough for us. Rambouillet proved a lovely place with a very helpful tourist office. Went on pleasant flat cycle paths through woods, visited chateau and gardens, also lots to see and do within a short drive e. G. A butterfly house, sculpture garden, etc.
Site itself is within woods, rough but level ground, not hardstanding, its quiet and peaceful. Some pitches have picnic tables, not all have electrics, a few have water at the pitch. Can be a bit difficult to drive large outfit into smaller pitches. There is no internet access or easy satellite dish set up (too many trees), however in the office a single computer is available and the staff helped us order and print tickets for Versailles Palace. Office sells bread and milk if ordered the previous day. Evenings the cafe / bar is open. Toilet / shower blocks are a bit rough and ready but all work well. No washing machine. Did not use pool but other families kids were enjoying themselves.
Overall we enjoyed it but its certainly not commercial or well appointed with mod cons and might not suit all.
Stayed here on the way to the Hoek of Holland from the Dordogne. Quite a different experience. Friendly staff - a young girl on golf like buggy took us to our pitch which was clearly defined by lots of shrubbery. There is so much shrubbery it is quite easy to get lost on way back from the loo! There is a pool for youngsters - adequate shower facilities and everything kept very clean. There appeared to be lots of activities laid on - much of which included in the price. As it was only an en route stop cannot comment on the surrounding area but there is a shop on site which sells the basics and we placed an order for baguettes and pain au chocolat for the morning which was duly delivered and beautifully fresh. I think Huttopia is a bit of a concept and not sure I quite get it but a large multi national crowd seemed to enjoy it.
