I'd agree with the above review - and also would mention that the price is very reasonable, at just 10 euros for car and caravan, two people, and electricity when we visited in September 2010.

The sanitary blocks are segregated into Male and Female areas (not common on a lot of municipal sites) - and are interesting in a very French 1960's sort of way. However, the shower fittings look to have been replaced recently and delivered a very efficient shower which could be regulated to any temperature just like at home! The block was immaculately clean when we visited.

There is a medium sized Carrefour supermarket nearby on the Montlucon road, about 5 mins from the campsite, with cheapish fuel. A range of several types of bread can be ordered from reception, to pick up from 8.00 am the following morning onwards (and the Baguette Traditionelle was amongst the best we've ever had).

Access can be a little tricky - as the town still operates 'Priorite A Droite' - and there are several unfathomable junctions, but the site is very convenient for north/south journeys heading towards the A75 free autoroute. All in all highly recommended.

An excellent little camp-site on an island between arms of the River Sioule within a park with many leisure facilities. The campsite is enclosed in a strong metal fence and the park around is closed to vehicles at night. The toilets and washing facilities are adequate and clean. There are no other facilities on site but it is only a 5-15 minutes walk to the town centre for all your needs!

One day there was a wine and cake sampling - free!

Pitches are quite large and well defined by hedges &c. There is a large area without electricity which effectively is the tenters - many one-nighters use this.

The town has a large number of restaurants and bars for all tastes and pockets. There are some reasonable walks in the area (as at one of the two Tourist Offices which open on different days). The countryside around is mainly flat with a few light hills. The town itself has interest for half a day or so . A reasonable distance from Vichy which should not be missed and possibly for Moulin but rather a tedious drive to Riom, Volvic and Clermont. The railway station is closed.

The superintendent has an office nearby in the park but is there for very limited hours (and her English is not great) but very helpful. [She travels around on a sit-up bicycle - if anyone taught their youngsters French using 'Muzzy' she would remind them of Albert . ]
