An absolutely excellent small, quiet site with a most helpful lady 'guardienne' with good English - she even let us use her personal freezer for our blocks. The facilities are excellent, clean and with lots of hot water; washing machine and drier; electric hook ups.
The site is nice and open - which we prefer to small hedged pitches - with quite a few static caravans round the edge with friendly locals: if you arrive in the afternoon when the office is not manned you just borrow a card for the barrier from someone and check in later and get your own card. It is very cheap: about 7 euros!
It is 5 mins walk from the village with 2 boulangers, a bar, a newsagents, a basic shop in the centre and on the edge an Intermarche supermarket, and a pizza/kebab place. The site backs onto the Seine and on the other side is a nice canal with pleasant walks/cycle rides along it. There is no restaurant but there is a 'Routiers' with cheap simple food about 10 minutes away - not much else. Large E. Le Clerc supermarket about 15 mins.
One downside: in humid or wet weather: a lot of mosquitoes!
In sum: an excellent site for just relaxing quietly; probably not so good for active children. Nearest place of interest - well worth it - is Troyes (30 kms?).

This campsite is just north of Troyes, not too far from the A26. Mery is a small village, we spotted the campsite whilst driving through en route to a stopover. It is a small, friendly site situated between a canal and the river Seine, almost in the centre of the village. The warden was a lovely lady who spoke very good English, she seemed genuinely glad to see us. The site is flat, a circular shape, with no marked pitches. There seemed to be a few static vans on the site.
The facility block was new, in the centre of the site, with separate facilities for men and women. The taps in the ladies toilet didn't seem to be connected, but the shower room was fine, though there were no enclosed basins. The washing up was outside under cover.
The village had few shops, we bought bread from the paper shop, but there was a small supermarket about 10 mins by bike.
There was no restaurant on site, and maybe none in the village either.
Because of the proximity to the canal and river, there were pleasant local walks.
The village was not particularly interesting, but there are places to visit in the area, including Troyes.
The campsite was the cheapest I have ever been on, and we stayed there on our next trip too. It is a lovely peaceful site, probably worth more than just a stopover.
