We stopped overnight here on our way to Calais. The site is very convenient to the Autoroute A5 situated in Arcis, by the river. The site is small and peaceful with lovely well maintained pitches surrounded by flowers. The sanitary facilities are clean and in one block. Close to local shops, restaurants, banks boulangerie Owner helpful and speaks English. Good for visiting city of Troyes nearby.

Agree with all the reviewers about this site. Regarding the breakin of the Motorhome, this must be a 1st as we have overnight stopped there for many years with no problems.

French squat toilets are now permanently locked out of use. This makes the 2 UK toilets busy in the mornings. Very hot water for showers and dish washing always available.

Motorhome facilities are at the end of the toilet block where grey water drainage is in the roadway. Water, with extended piping is on the wall opposite. Toilet cassette drainage is in one of the French squat toilets now used for this purpose.

While the camp site facilities are similar to a French Municipal, the overnight price is not, in May 2013 we were charged 21Euros for two people and electric!

We have just visited this site as the one we normally stay at was shut.

When arriving it looks a lovely well kept site on a small island with a park backing onto it.

Overnight whilst sleeping we were broken into by robbers. They cut the blinds off and jammed the lock. Then cut the rubber rim around the motorhome door window. Then gained entry to steel my purse with euro's and bankcards and pounds from my husbands wallet. They also stole my 7' smartphone that I had just purchased to keep in touch with family at home.

This was in the middle of the night and there were no notices on the reception to say who to ring in an emergency. We tried the camping book number and luckily this was the owners mobile number.

He came straight away and called the police for us. He translated and drove us to the police station the next day.

He was very helpful to us but we felt the security of the site was not good. There was no lighting at all and so was pitch black at night. The fence surrounding the campsite was just wire and not very high which meant it could be climbed over or under very easily. Also the gates at the front were locked but also very low and so easily climbed over.

The owner said he had cameras at the front but not around the site itself. I did look for cameras but personally couldn't see them so cannot confirm this. Either way they were not helpful.

My concerns are that others may also fall foul of this and considering the owner doesn't accept C. Cards under 90 euro's it would be obvious to any prospective burglar that people could well have cash on board.

Needless to say we did not pay for the night's camping and moved elsewhere.

It is a busy and useful site as just off the sutoroute so people use it as a night halt on route. This I think is what the robbers were aware of as it seemed organised to me.

Please beware of this as I would hate someone else to experience this.

A cracking short stop/ overnight site, if you are travelling south or north. We had not booked a site on our outward leg chancing on a selection of 4 as potential overnighters. After the journey to Dover and an early morning crossing we decided that 200 to 250 miles was our limit on the French side of the Channel and therefore picked Ile Cherlieu as our stop. A quick phone call en route and we were in. We were told turn up, ride around the site and pick your pitch, with an assortment of sizes and shapes this was made easier for us by arriving just before the 4pm rush. The site manager a surprisingly humorous Dutch chap by the name of Ton greeted us just after our arrival (word of caution they do not accept bank cards for fees of less than 90 euros) so if you are overnighting take cash.

The facilities are basic but functional, showers and toilets are clean if a little dated. No other facilities on site as such but they do tend to cater for the short stoppers, good range of shops and a couple of decent supermarkets in Arcis itself most of which are within easy walking distance. Worth a visit is Troyes a short 20 minute drive away.

This 3-star 80 pitch campsite is ideal as an overnight stop on the way to/from the south, being around 230 miles from Calais and only a very short distance off the A26. It is easy to find. Leave the A26 at exit 21, follow the road into Arcis-sur-Aube and turn right at the town centre into Rue de Chalons. The campsite is up this road on the right. It is in a lovely position, on its own island in the middle of the Aube river. There are many flowers on site.

On arrival you will be allowed to drive around the campsite and choose your own pitch. The pitches on this site are generally smaller than average so larger units may have problems with some pitches. Electricity points are located all around the site.

The site has most of its facilities at the front of the site. The older style toilet block houses French style and UK style toilets without seats, showers, washing sinks, laundry and dish-washing facilities. These are kept very clean.

There is no shop or restaurant/take away on site although the site is situated within walking distance of the town where these facilities exist.

Wifi is available on around 80% of this site for those who require it.

There is an Intermarche hypermarket close to the site where you can refill the car if required.
