 Everything others have said is true, but a real downside for us is the lack of phone signal. That makes you dependent on the site wifi. Unusually these days is charged for and extortionate! We are not heavy users of internet, just a phone each for Whatsapp and a tablet each for a newspaper. For 4 to 7 days the charge totals 43eu, more than sites charge for electricity.

But electricity has a substantial cost to the site, whereas the incremental cost of wifi is zero. And no, setting up a hotspot from one device doesn't work, though tediously sharing via Bluetooth does.

The site has been reducing its opening dates due to lack of custom and this must surely be a reason.

This is such a pity because it is an excellent site in other respects.

 Back again this year. As my previous review. It’s a lovely naturist site. Convenient for A20 autoroute but right out in the sticks. About a 10mile drive into Argenton-sur-Creuse which is a nice town well worth a walk around. It has a Lidl so good enough for us.

Very little phone signal at the campsite & only a bit of 3G. You can just about make a phone call but if you want internet then you have to pay for their Wi-Fi 16€ pw but it works well all over site.

Takes ACSI card until early July then again in Sept. Jul/Aug prices are high but not outrageous. Well worth a visit.

 Naturist campsite in central France conveniently located about 6 miles off main A20 autoroute so good for a few days if heading north or south or for a longer stay. Brenne area is very pretty & uncrowded.

Site is Dutch owned with most campers Dutch so feels like Holland in France. English spoken by owners & Dutch campers alike so no language difficulties for UK campers here.

Nice bar & restaurant if you want it but pricey. Lidl about 10miles away in Argenton-sur-Creuse so ok with us. Site is signposted as you get near so follow these not your sat nav. Access to site is good & most pitches fairly level & easy to site caravan. After siting caravan cars must be parked in car park at site entrance.

Very large site so good for long walks. 2 smallish pools one of which has sliding roof which can be closed in bad weather. Toilets showers & wash up facilities are rather old & tired. Plenty of hot water & good water flow though so quite adequate.

So overall it’s a lovely site & well worth a visit. Takes ACSI card early & late season

 This really is a lovely site run by lovely people. The amenities are all clean and well kept. The site is large but so much space means an uncrowded feel. There are two pools one covered one open. A sauna restaurant a bar and snack bar. However opening times are dependant on season. There is s lake which you can swim or fish in. This has a small sandy area. The lake did not seem that deep when swimming in it. The restaurant has evening meals for about 21 euro per person. This really has a nice feel about it.

On arrival we were offered a drink and then with some other people were told about the site and admin carried out. You walk around chose your pitch in our case and return to the bar area. Cars have to be left outside the site except in one field. This was not a problem although we normally do have the car next to our tent. Would really recommend this site.

 Originally we stayed at La Petite Brenne because we managed to come over to France 2 days before we originally planned before going South and as the site had been recommended to us we wanted to take a look.

After being away for a couple of weeks we decided to go back and spent the rest of our holiday, 9 days here, as we loved it so much.

The site is so peaceful and relaxing, the staff are so friendly and the pitches are huge, what more could you ask for

Our one fault was that the boules courts were out of the way under hedges and trees and were not looked after, we enjoy having a game but didn't because of the state of the courts

We loved the space and the naturist walks that are marked and will certainly be going back to this fantastic site

 We visited this site for the first time as a stopover on our way down to Cap d'Agde, and wish we could have stopped longer. Having ran a Naturist campsite ourselves, we can honestly say this is the best Naturist Campsite we have ever been to, bar none. The way it has been set up is perfect, the communal buidings are beautiful, typical french rural, the various camping areas are extensive, large pitches, lovely views, facilities are second to none, and the owners are friendly and helpful, insisting we sit down and have a complementary drink before we put the tent up in the exceptionally hot weather. They are also multi lingual so no problems with language wherever you are from!

The previous review gives all the practical information, one small addition that we noted was that unlike a lot of other rural french sites, for some reason there was no problem at all with mosquito or other bites, not a one! Whether a seasoned naturist or a wary newcomer, this place is perfect whether for a couple of nights or a couple of weeks holiday.

We will definitely put ourselves out to visit this little piece of Utopia again.

 Le Petite Brenne Naturist site.

After a fairly long “Back Road’s” run to do the last 100km’s to Le Petite Brenne, we pulled up at 16:30 on a Sunny May Afternoon. Firstly watch where sat nav sends you, basically aim for J18 of the A20 and then look out for the small signs(follow them not satnav). There are other routes HOWEVER if you are pulling a 7. 5m, 1. 5tonne caravan, avoid other routes unless you are a VERY experienced Shed Dragger or just Daft (we are somewhere in the middle), as they take ‘Back Roads’ to a whole new level.

On arrival you can tell this is a quiet site and I mean quiet, even the Cicara’s shut up during the night. It’s in the sticks and the owners won’t take more than 150 units which are spread around 5 areas - By the Lake, The Play areas and horses, the courtyard etc. So in peak season I wouldn’t think you would feel hemmed in, as the pitches are huge and really well spaced out.

Park up in the car park and go into the reception area (This is also the bar) I was greet by Carel who was preparing the evenings Restaurant Meal (I’ll come back to that) before wanting money or passports he sent me back to the car to get the other half to have a welcome drink and have a chat with him, unusual but I followed to see what happened. The Reception/ Bar was a fantastic old Barn Conversion, complete with numerous cats, a couple of cracking dogs and some rather nice beer! We were advised where all the facilities were around the site on a map and then invited to walk round to select the ideal pitch for our requirements (We went for one overlooking the lake, which was very nice). Now this was a first for us - they didn’t want paying any money. Instead an account was set up for us and if we wanted a beer in the day or a meal in the restaurant we just put it on our tab and you pay on departure. Very trusting and very practical for a naturist site, not having to carry money around. Once you have decided on a pitch, they will drop the chain on the entrance and you can bring your van in and set up. Point to note here- they don’t allow cars to stay on the pitches so once you have set up they ask you to return it to the car park. If you ‘Must’ keep your car with you there is a small area for such people but we found the lack of cars was nothing but a positive to the ambiance of the site (Carrying the Beer and Wine to the van can be done by wheel barrow available to use at the entrance). Other points to note when choosing a pitch- the electric points can be a long way from some pitches so either have extension cables or choose one close to then bollards. Water is available from loads of points around the site. The pitches vary quite considerably in how level they are but you don’t have to put your setup perpendicular to the road with the corner of the van against a little peg you can set it at any angle with your awning facing in any direction you like (It would appear that the wind tends to come from the bottom of the site by the lake).

Facilities: Toilets and sinks are located in loads of locations around the site with the showers primarily in the main toilet blocks, all were kept immaculate all the time. Chemical toilet points were also located at most toilet blocks (Use organic chemicals and you can empty into any other wise you are limited). WiFi is available and is provided by an external company and covers the whole site. Signal strength does vary quite a bit depending on location (Just as we were leaving they were upgrading with a LOT more antennas), various packages are available €16 7 days as a base. TV signals, we got a range of French Freeview channels. Mobiles will get average reception as well. There are 2 pools, one indoor that was a very pleasant temperature and an outdoor one, although it was solar heated, it was still a little chilly at the beginning of June. Both pools and there surroundings are well maintained and colourfully decorated with tile mosaic seating areas. If you fancy being a bit more energetic they have sign posted out 3 “Hikes” of varying lengths (Up to 1hr) that are pretty flat walking through the woods at the bottom of the site. I’m pretty sure they are suitable for naturist walks as you don’t leave the site really. There is a sauna (availability varies depending on seasonal demand) the bar area and restaurant are very nice where you can book for a 3 course evening meal for €19pp - a daily menu is shown on their boards. Chips and pizza are also available from 1800-2000. A local baker delivers daily, just place your order by 1900 and collect from 0830 the next day. In reception/bar they do sell a small range of goods should need them otherwise the nearest shops are about 20 minute drive away in Argenton-sur-creuse. One place that is a must to visit if you stay on 29th of each month is the Market a Les Helles. It is massive and takes over the entire village and takes 1 ½ hrs just to quickly walk round the maze of stalls selling everything from clothes and kitchenware to live chickens and rabbits. It starts at 08:00 and gets very busy so go early.

The areas we thought needed work on - Simply nothing. This is such a relaxed and friendly site we didn’t find any negative points.

The all important question would we return? Well, after spending an amazing week there in June, we decided to go back again for 2 weeks in July. The peace and tranquillity of the site is amazing…what was also amazing was that once we’d spoken to the owners about availability, they even let us leave the van in a storage field – for three weeks – for nothing! We expected to pay something for leaving the van, so were bowled over when they wanted nothing…except to see our review of the site!

This really is a gem of a site – beautiful surroundings, really friendly owners, and a brilliant relaxed atmosphere…everything we want in a site.

We were booked to go to a site in the med, but have cancelled it to return – the sites in the south of France can sometimes make you feel like you’re just a number, and part of the machine that is camping – not at Petite Brenne… it feels more like a community and we can’t wait to return!

 One of our favourite naturist campsites in France. Run by a Dutch family, who are both efficient and friendly. Full facilities including a lovely solar-heated pool, (and another covered heated pool if the weather is bad) - and a natural lake to swim in as well. Loads of naturist walks in the woods & fields around the site. Plenty of toilets, showers etc - everything is spotless, of course. Lots to do for families, including horse-riding & all sorts of organised activity if you wish. Evening meals available en-famille - great way of meeting people. Region around is very quiet, quite a trip to the nearest supermarket (Argenton). We love cycling on the quiet local roads.

Summary - we always end up staying longer than we planned.!
