 Great site stayed here on our trailable Narrowboat each direction prior to a month on the Canals and Rivers.

Fine welcome from the owner, pitch sizes good and showers with plenty of hot water and none of those annoying buttons you have to keep pressing.

Free WiFi, ordered the rustic farm bread which we enjoyed

Will return

 A smashing site to just 'chill out'. Vast pitches with shading provided by tall ash trees (hence the name of the site) on the older part of the site, whilst the newer section also had huge pitches and tall hedges. We were here in August and there was no shortage of space, though the pitches in the older section always seemed to be occupied first each day. Facilities very clean and cared for - 3 or 4 toilets, 4 showers with lovely hot water and temperature controlable, several cubicled wash basins, washing up facilities and a washing machine (though no tumble dryer).

There isn't much to do in the near vicinity other than some gentle walks. Troyes is within easy reach and is worth a look. We drove for about 90 mins and spent the day at Guedelon - the mediaeval style castle and village the French are building as part of an archaeological experiment. We could have gone back a second day as there was so much to see.

As has been mentioned before, WiFi is available free for an hour a day or unlimited for a small charge. It worked VERY well and we didn't mind paying that bit extra as the site was so reasonably priced. The previous reviewer who mentioned the poor mobile phone signal was either unlucky or a new mast has been installed as we found the signal very good.

If you feel like treating yourself during your stay then B&B is an option and the rooms are lovely (don't know about the food but should imagine it was good). Quite a number of the campers seem to have a room for the last night so they can take their time packing, have a good night's sleep and make a prompt departure in the morning.

 We are at this site at the moment staying for four nights en route to Spain. The site is situated in a small village and it is very rural. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The site was easy to find. It is an attractive site in the grounds of very pretty, traditional French farmhouse-type buildings. It is not a big site but it has very large pitches of which probably half have gravel hardstandings. Most seem to have EHU and taps. EHU seems to be a good amperage as we have run our heating, kettle, microwave etc without any problem. The site has a small shop selling local produce, wine, and home made jams and preserves. The only bread you can pre-order is a rustic artisan-type loaf. The nearest shops are about 5km away in Auxon. There is a small Inter-Marche supermarket there but this shuts at lunchtime and does not re-open until 1430hrs. It also has a petrol station and there is a pharmacy too. There has been a lot of rain while we were here but the drainage on the site is excellent. The gravel used on the pitches and the road in the site is level and does not get dirty or develop puddles. The site has an hour's free Wi-Fi a day or you can buy a package - we bought 3 days' unlimited supply for 8 euros and the connection was very good. However, the mobile phone signal and 3G is very poor although the weather may have affected it during our stay. The showers are clean with plenty of hot water. There is a washing machine but no tumble dryer. There is also a very pleasant television lounge. There is a children's play area but the site is probably more for those who prefer a quiet, relaxing site or just need a stopover.

 Completely agree with the previous reviewer. This is an amazing little site with the biggest pitches I've ever seen, ranging from huge to enormous, some with a hardstanding area and some all grass. It is well signposted from the N77 to/from Troyes and just a few minutes from the main road. The turn into the courtyard from the fairly narrow road may require care from larger outfits but otherwise access is good.

The site is open all year and has a loyalty card (no expiry date) where after 10 nights you get a free night's stay - though it was only 14 euros a night for outfit + 2 + 10 amp electric anyway!

It seemed to attract a mixture of overnighters and longer stays while we were there, about 50% Dutch and 50% other nationalities, and was probably about half full each night.

It is on the edge of a small village with beautifully restored farm buildings housing the usual facilities and a large room with comfy chairs and settees and a small TV, books to borrow (in a variety of languages) and log-on instructions for the WiFi, which is apparently free for 1 hour's use per day.

The numbered pitches are slightly less obviously divided to the front of the farm while those to the side (newer additions?)seem to be separated by higher hedging. They are so vast, though, that there are no privacy issues wherever you are. Each pitch has electric hook up and there are water points by most pitches. The grounds and garden areas are well kept and there are plenty of trees (the tall ash trees the farm is named after) to provide shade when needed but not enough to detract from the open feel of the site. In this rural setting the predominant sound is birdsong and little else!

Home made jams, saucissons and cider products and a range of crafts and cards are available from Reception, but only bread from a local farm (nice malty flavour but heavy in texture and expensive!) is available to order. There is a new, small Intermarche with 24 hour fuel, a boulangerie and the usual small shops in a village about 10 mins away by car (on the other side of the main road) but for major supermarkets you would need to go to Troyes, about 15 miles away, which is well worth a visit in its own right.

There are cycling and walking routes close by but not for fairweather cyclists like us, I'm afraid - too many hills!

However, if you want a quiet, relaxing few days in rolling countryside, then this site is perfect.

 Stayed four nights in high season in our Outwell Vermont in this gem of a campsite.

As far as touring is concerned there isn't much close by to drive to visit, but that isn't the point of this completely relaxing site.

Although high season the site was barely half full, which made for peace and quiet. The pitches are huge and grassy and mostly level; most are individually defined by very tall mature hedges which insulate you from neighbours. We had a bit of rain and were pleased to see the pitches drain well and don't become muddy.

Prices are very good value; we paid EU 14 per night with EHU - about 11 per night. There are no surcharges for kitchen tents/awnings etc.

Entry to the site is via a courtyard that contains the site office (which sells wine, local cider and local terrines etc. ) toilet block and recycling centre. Once booked in by the very friendly owner (who hasn't much English) one is free to choose one's pitch - of which I guess there is always a good choice going by our experience. The whole place is well thought out and very welcoming.

Toilet facilities are limited but were never busy, always clean though a little dated (the French equivalent of avocado bathroom suites). Showers are free and are temperature adjustable.

On site is a small children's playground, but a fantastic find is a full-sized maze at the rear of the site - in which I spent a good 20 minutes (the last 5 of which were getting a little panicky :-)).

The campsite is well lit at night until around 11pm when the site lights are switched off - so a torch is useful. While this may be about saving power, the rural setting means there is no light pollution to speak of; we had mainly clear nights and the night sky was utterly amazing - constellations were so clear it looked almost like one could reach out and touch them.

The village of Eaux Puisseaux is a picturesque gem. Opposite the site is a farm shop selling poultry and eggs. Within the village is a cafe, a fine-dining restaurant, a shop and a cider museum (well worth a visit). An ATAC supermarket and fuel station are only a few miles down the road.

Campers were a good mix of tents, caravans and campervans, a few English but mainly Dutch. Most were couples, young and old, but not many children. Expect very courteous neighbours and lots of peace & quiet.

We were originally only going to stay for a night or two, but are glad we choose to stay a bit longer before carrying on with our summer tour. We would definitely stay again if in the region.
