I have stayed here on and off for around 6 years. It is one of the nicest 'basic' campsites in France. The site isn't large and does fill up quickly as it is a good stop over site as it is close to major routes if heading south or returning north. The site is mostly flat with a couple of gentle sloping areas, all grass piches, plenty of power and more than adequate facilities which are kept clean. The site is the former chateau orchard and is surround by hedges and walls which gives a nice sense of privacy. All ways a quiet calm place, the village is lovely to go for a stroll, or head into Amiens for more of a city buzz and choice of restaurants. There is a large Carrefour about 10 mins away as you head into Amiens.

We used this as a night stop over on our way south and it was wonderful! The lady who runs the site was lovely and so accommodating, we had reserved a pitch but she said we could chose one ourselves if we weren't happy with the one allocated however we were more than happy! Large pitches, wonderful friendly atmosphere and set in a lovely quaint village next to a château. The toilets are clean and more than adequate. The lady who runs the site only speaks French but she speaks slowly and even with my small amount of knowledge was easy to converse with.

The play area is small but kept my 9 and 4 yr old happy for a few hours.

Will happily return and stay for longer next time.

Close to the motorway and easily located. There is a supermarket and petrol station in the next village approx 5 miles away.

Lovely campsite set in beautiful grounds. Quiet village and no noise from traffic. Heavenly. Toilet block, showers, and washing up facilities were all excellent and kept very clean. Pitches were sectioned off with low hedges. Really friendly atmosphere, lady running the site was just lovely. Brilliant Carrefour supermarket about ten minutes away, sells fuel as well. Location of campsite very good for visits to Somme memorials and war cemeteries. Miss it already and can't wait to go back.

Just returned today from 5 days at this site and have been really pleased with it.

Just 33 pitches set amongst fruit trees with 3 toilets and showers each for men and women and then 2 separate shower / toilet units for 'handicapped' people which you can also use. We could always use the toilet and/ or shower when needed. Facilities were clean, showers hot and loo roll provided!

There is a tiny play area with 4 pieces of equipment so not a site if you have very active children expecting a big play area.

Site was quiet, other campers friendly and considerate ( a lot of Dutch campers whom we find quiet and friendly on the whole!). We had pitch number 4, I would recommend pitches 2- 9 as along the bottom is a fairly busy road and there would be road noise there.

No soap in toilets so bring own hand wash and you need a two pin adapter for the electric hookup - we spent ages trying to buy one locally, then discovered for a 20 euro deposit you can borrow one from Reception

The local village is very french and peaceful - hard to believe we were just 4 hours from our doorstep! Bread van at 8 am very welcome.

The site does get very full every evening but by 9 o'clock most people have moved on so we had the showers and loos without queues. We didn't experience noisy departures most people hooked up the night before and left quietly.

I would definitely return again and I am very fussy ! There is a lot to do locally and this site is a lovely haven.

You must be prepared to speak some french however as the lady on reception does not speak English.

Oh and you can only pay in cash and you need to have a passport or drivers licence for them on arrival.

Think that's it - hope you all enjoy the site as much as we did - vey depressing to leave the sun and hit the rain at Dover !

Super rural French site next to an impressive but not famous chateau (which can be visited at 5. 30pm each day with a guide). Site is set in an orchard and has lovely large pitches. Lots of people stop for one night but as many choose to have a longer break so it is not like a port site. Half an hour away from WW1 sites; best ones to see are Thiepval and Newfoundland Memorials. The War Museum in Albert is very dated. Bertangles is a delightful quiet village. Nearest shop (Carrefour) is in Villers Bocage a short drive away. Baker van comes to site 8am avery day. Amiens Cathedral is worth a visit and the Summer Son et Lumiere show is amazing; only the French know how to do this stuff so well. Don't miss it. 45 mins away from la Manqueterre bird sanctuary also very worthwhile visiting. Best to book this site on phone or email and you need to do it in French. They have a reservation system that is non-computerised and very efficient. Lovely friendly owners and many people return.

Reviewer: Strathlinn 4 reviews from this member

After studying choice of campsite for weeks before departure this was to be our main destination for our first trip to France with our caravan. I have to say though that it ended up our least favourite of the 4 sites we used. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and our reserved pitch was waiting for us, on hindsight we should have opted for another pitch further back from the '1 night stopover area'. We got sorted and went out for an explore of the surrounding area and some food shopping, when we returned about 5pm it was like coming into a different site, very very busy with people pitching all over the place, felt like we were on a motorway service area and was not at all restful. Facilities were adequate but really struggled to cope with volume of use, so whilst they may manage to stay clean when site quiet, they quickly went downhill due to sheer numbers using them, including campers 'out on the street' who could not get on site so just parked up alongside. All the over-nighters left early the next day and there were a couple of quiet hours before the afternoon rush started again.

I thought we could access the chateau grounds during the day, but this was only at a charge and the laundry consisted of 2 Belfast sinks with no plugs. Am sure the site is lovely when quiet but obviously best to avoid the weekends. We left after 2 nights.
