As we were visiting Nantes we stayed here after leaving another site (La Pindiere) early as we were not happy with it. Petit port was much better. The site was in a great location, a tram stop was just outside the entrance for trips into the city. Even cycling into town was ok, taking about 15 mins and mostly on cycle paths. It took longer on the way back being a bit uphill (NB we are in our fifties and NOT very fit!). The site is off a fairly main road but there is very little noise and you do not feel as if you are in the city. A small river runs alongside.

The whole site was very well maintained, good security, the staff helpful. A busy but fairly pricey restaurant on site serves good food. Very nearby there are lots of supermarkets, shops and cafes including burger bars. Although there is no pool there is free access to the municipal indoor pool literally just over the road. Our grassy pitch was a bit muddy after recent rain so we put some cardboard down. We arrived on spec so if booking ahead maybe best to get a hardstanding pitch. Some pitches have mains water for which you can get an adapter at the office. Toilet blocks were great with 24 hour access, very large cubicled unisex showers, proper toilets with paper, soap for handwashing and even a free wall mounted hairdryer. Nantes has a lot to offer. We got a lot of help from the tourist office and enjoyed following the green line on the pavement which takes you to hundreds of interesting artworks. Cycling round the city was very easy. Do not miss a ride on the mechanical elephant at Les Machines de L'iles!

Excellent site with great access to the city. The site is very park like and it is hard to believe that you are in a city.

Reception was very friendly and efficient with loads of local information.

Pitches were a good size with electric and water. The water needed a special connection which we were able to borrow from reception.

The washrooms/showers cubicles were huge with a shower and washbasin in the same cubicle with lashings of hot water. Washing up, laundry and chemical toilet emptying all in the same block. We had no problem with queues etc for the facilities.

The restaurant had very limited opening hours (restaurant was only open on a couple of nights a week) but take away pizzas were available every night. However it's very easy to get a tram into the city where there was a vast choice of places to eat or drink.

There is a tram stop across the road to get a tram into the city. We asked about getting tickets at reception but were told that as we only wanted to travel on the tram and not a 'freedom pass' for the boats and attractions a 24 hour ticket was available at the machine at the tram stop for 5 euros so we used this.

No on site pool but there is an indoor swimming pool complex across the road.

The city was fabulous and the Isle de Machines a 'must visit'.

There is a motorhome aire on site for those not wanting full facilities.

We heartily recommend this site for anyone wanting to visit the city and will definitely return again.

Reading the previous positive reviews I'm glad to say standards haven't slipped.

The site is well signposted and easily found.

Reception staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

The pitches are spacious and clean with 16 Amp electric, as others have stated water is available on the pitches but there is a motorhome service point nearby for those that haven't got the right adaptors (although these are available from reception).

The amenities block was very clean although they could do with a few more cubicles.

The staff at the restaurant were extremely helpful too.

The tram into town is easily accessed from the site, the city is well worth a visit especially Les Machines de L'Ile (make sure you go on the elephant).

The aire is situated on the same site but was full, fortunately we'd booked onto the campsite because we'd planned to go to Les Machines de L'Ile, which was just as well as the site was full (but didn't seem busy).

This municipal site was easily as good as, if not better than many commercial sites.

Very positive experience staying at this site. Staff friendly and the gentleman who booked us in spoke excellent English so even though I'd polished up my 'O' level French it wasn't required in this instance.

We were holidaying with friends and when making our email bookings we had requested nearby pitches. The site was able to do this for us and kindly allocated adjacent pitches on arrival which were hard standing with a sandy surface.

Power (16amp) and water availability good. As per a previous review; you need an adapter for the water points on the pitch however you don't need an adapter if you fill up at the motor home service point and push button taps were scattered around the site for small containers.

Toilet and shower facilities very clean and well maintained. The shower cubicles were huge and included a washbasin.

Limited offering of food in the restaurant but well presented. The menu wasn't in English but was easily understood with only basic French knowledge.

You can order fresh bread in the restaurant for collection the following morning. There is a small convenience store nearby but it was closed for the holidays during our stay.

As per previous reviews, the tram into Nantes in just outside the entrance and is easy to use. I believe you can buy tickets at site reception but they had run out so we used the machine at the tram stop.

Sightseeing in Nantes - as well as 'Machines of the Isle des Nantes', we visited the beautiful cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul) and Chateau Des Ducs De Bretagne. All very worthwhile attractions. The old part of town is also good just to wander around and enjoy the atmosphere. Tourist information available at site reception.

We used this site for an overnight stay as our friends were there.

Reception was friendly and efficient.

Large, private, shaded hard standings.

Difficult to believe you are in a city - the site is very green and quiet. Smart, clean sanitary blocks. On site restaurant was pleasant enough, nice pizzas if a little overpriced. We sat on the terrasse and so could watch the kids play mini golf (free) and on the park.

We used the free swimming pool across the road. Indoor but wave pool, couple of slides and very clean.

We would definitely return for 2 or 3 nights and 'do Nantes' although be warned our friends cycled into the city centre and had one of their bikes stolen whilst they were sightseeing.

Brilliant site for touring the city. Tram stops outside the gate and tickets are available from reception (24hr ticket for 4 people 7euros50). Staff were very helpful and all spoke very good english. Free access to the swimming pool over the road and discounted skating at the adjacent ice rink. WiFi coverage exellent over the whole site.

Three pin electrics with 16amps. Own drain and tap on pitch. Adaptors for the electric and water available from reception.

Toilets clean and tidy at all times of the day.

Free mini golf! on site bistro where you can also order bread and morning pastries (although it was the worst bread we have encountered in France).

Lots of things to see and do in the city. Les machines de l'ile is a must.

Expensive for our budget but you can't beat the location.
