Reviewer: Swedley 1 review from this member

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.

We liked this site so much we stayed eight days. During our stay there weren't many occupied pitches so it was very peaceful. I imagine in the height of the season it is very busy with both caravanners & campers. The pitches looked a bit worn for what was the start of the season, but they are private & level. The facilities are very good. The restaurant serves good food but at expensive prices. The staff were very friendly & helpful. We enjoyed our bike rides around the adjacent flat countryside. We had a great day out visiting Beaune. The only disappointment was the poor Wi-Fi which could only be accessed at the bar, which itself weasn't always open.

Reviewer: Minimoos 17 reviews from this member

Useful stop off, open well spaced pitches, playground outdoor pool (pretty cold even in July), indoor pool pretty busy! There was a lot for kids to do, including donkey rides and bouncy castles. Nice restaurant and pretty looking chateau. Shop sold all you needed, and place had a nice feel to it. I would say this was perfect for our needs a pleasant pass though, but a bit remote for me to have a holiday in this area.
