Date of Visit: June 2015 Unit:  Touring Caravan Rating:
Reviewer: AndrewMoorey 15 reviews from this member

Very well presented site, Reception friendly and efficient. We were touring with another couple and had requested adjacent, serviced pitches. We were allocated adjoining pitches in the main field across the causeway which were flat but stony so rock pegs were needed to pitch the awnings and canopies. We were able to connect to water and electricity OK but grey waste still has to go into a waste hog as the disposal is central between the pitches and we would have needed pipes about 20 feet long and the connection to the drain is about 9 inches off the floor. This meant we had to trundle the waste a little way away to get a ground level drain

The site was very busy but quiet as there were only a few pre-school kids and although we were right next to the central play area noise was never a problem. The sanitation block was cleaned very regularly all through the day, plenty of hot water and the washing up area large enough that we never had to queue. The pool was a godsend as we had several very hot days reaching 40 degrees on a couple of occasions, the pool area is clean with shade available. They stipulate budgie smugglers for the men but no-one seemed to worry about it as the pool is unsupervised so most blokes were wearing shorts. The take away food service was great, but book early for the restaurant, its very popular. The bar was pleasant enough and the wifi was adequate. Around the site there is a very nice restaurant on the river 10 minutes walk away and the hamlet itself is pleasant. We visited Louhans, Dole and Chalons but spent the majority of the time on site just relaxing. The site was occupied mainly by Brits, Dutch and German couples plus there was a rally on site for the Dutch Hobby Caravan Club but they were having a good time and not harming anyone. The overnight travellers were pitched near the chateau and never bothered us.

For me the midges and mozzies were a problem, I got constantly bitten despite repellant while my wife had no issues at all. (they wouldn't dare!) I understand that this year there is an epidemic of the darn critturs in France but we'll not be staying by standing water again. The two fishing lakes were alive with em and there is a feed to the lakes from the river which I think is the main problem as when we were out walking the dogs in the cool of the evening we would attract them, and a couple of times when driving out we drove through clouds of the things.

Overall a pleasant, well run site. An 8 hour jog from Calais we got down in one hop but broke the journey on the way back. Ignore the sat nav once you turn off the main road and go under the railway bridge and follow the signs. The sat nav will try and take you in the back road which we managed but it was a bit tight.

I can't think of a reason not to stay here although like anywhere there are minor things that could be a bit better. The reason this site gets so busy (it was full at 2 weekends even in early June) is because it is in a great location and most things are a notch above other sites. I still don't get the open urinals but that's the French for you! If you pick a pitch over the bridge it is a lot more peacful than by the chateaux and has a large green space in the middle which makes up for the longer walk to the toilets. Staff were great. Definitely recommend this site.

I'm not sure why one of the previous reviewers was quite so negative.

We always stop off here on the way to the south and always make a point of staying for 2-3 nights on the way down and back as it is a nice way to start and end your holiday.

We like the fact that despite it is fairly big, it is quiet and well spaced out with big pitches. As somebody else mentioned, it is split into two areas with the area over the bridge further away from the main facilities. However there is still a toilet/shower block in this area, so maybe one of the previous reviewers missed it. Toilets and showers are spotless.

For younger children this site is really good, for older children they may find it a bit quiet unless they are into cycling in which case they would probably enjoy a bit of touring around - the roads are quiet and perfect for cyclists.

One thing I enjoy is sitting in the courtyard in the evening enjoying a beer.

If I was to pick any negatives then it is that the bar closes a bit earlier in low season (10pm). We have also stayed here in high season which at this time of year we think is a bit expensive. Also, in the far field we once camped along the back next to the road. We found local farmers traffic woke us up early, so if you are in a tent I'd stay further away from there.

We stayed 2 nights at this campsite on our way to the French Alps. We were placed on a nice pitch near to one of the lakes. The facilities were close for us, but seemed quite a trek for others situated further down the site. They were clean enough but maybe the site could do with another set of wash blocks? We ate in the restaurant one night, it was fairly busy and the takeaway was extremely busy. Food was delicious and the menu was quite substantial. We visited the nearby town of Chalon-sur-saone and wandered around happily looking at the cathedral (which is worth a visit) and small shops. Great for a stop-off on our journey.

POSITIVES

Nice but basic pool. Sauna and jacuzzi are extra.

Good restaurant and takeaway.

Nice setting

Near to motorway and easy to get to.

Helpful staff

NEGATIVES

Expensive - the most expensive campsite we stayed at in our four week tour but not the best equipped. Our ten year old was classed as an adult. Price didn't match the facilities in comparison to other campsites.

Toilets - Too small for the size of the site and could do with a good clean.

Layout - Both toilet blocks are near the chateau so most of the pitches are a bike ride away.

Mosquitoes - Only time I was bitten in four weeks away. I attribute this to the stagnant ponds described as fishing lakes!.

Site in very pleasant location with some pitches having view to fishing lake.

Excellent outdoor pool, there is also a heated smaller indoor pool.

Toilets and showers are good but Unisex.

Did not use restaurant but take-away beef bourguignon and frittes very good value.

Excellent and friendly staff who spoke english.

Wifi seemed ok in the bar area.

**** Would definitely use again if in area.
