 Handy site for first stop after Calais, not to far off main route.

Go to the back of the site for pitches with grass area in front of pitch. Quiet site.

Lovely lady on reception and she spoke good English.

Will most likely stop here on our way back too.

 Very pleasant welcome, very friendly couple, pitched easily,

The site has residents, who seemed very friendly,

As an overnight stop very easy to access via the N154,

Toilet blocks are a bit tired, but then the site is situated in old France.

Ideal for fishermen

 This site is great. The WiFi is free and very good. The showers are in an excellent heated block. Staff are exceptionally friendly.

The pitch was a little muddy having had rain sometime previously, but it was not a problem.

The electric supply is a full 18amps!

There is a great dog walk through fields and around the lake.

I will definitely stay at this site again

 Very handy winter stopover en-route south (big plus), reasonable access to & from main route. Compact village and fairly tight access into and onto main site (bit negative but managed). Barrier access. Facilities were fine for us overnighting. Pleasant owners. Mainly seasonals & full timers on site.

Suggest do check details and opening times before winter visiting - we rang a couple of hours prior to arrival en-route.

 Stayed in February, extremely helpful staff, English spoken, only stopped 1 night, but ideal for a stopover, basic amenities but very clean, close to N154, small cafe bar across the road. We arrived late and in a snow blizzard staff came out and asked if they could assist, would definitely use again

Reviewer: HertsCamper 10 reviews from this member

 We stayed at this little campsite with a tent for an overnight stop on our way further south. The campsite is well located to reach from an 11am Dover to Calais to ferry and straightforward to find.

I found the owner to be friendly and helpful and he speaks a reasonable amount of English. He directed me towards the rear of the campsite which is open to choose your own pitch. We didnít have an electric hook up so I canít comment on that. It is a good, flat area but the grass was quite long which wasnít very helpful since we arrived in pouring rain and the kids quickly got soaked up to their knees! There is a little play area which the kids enjoyed (hence the rapid soaking!).

The wash block was in the process of being overhauled so only one half was open, which meant that the facilities were temporarily communal. They had clearly been already overhauled and were pleasant, modern and clean with individual wash cubicles and decent showers. No toilet paper though. Our location towards the rear of the campsite was as far from the wash block as possible, but it was still only a short walk and the site is adequately lit at night.

The campsite is very quiet. The only other occupants seemed to be resident. There is no bar etc, but a few drinks are available in reception and bread can be ordered for the morning but unfortunately for those making an early start it is not available until 10. 30am. There is a useful room with sofas and a dining table with a free to use microwave. There appears to be very little in the village, so you do need to come prepared to arrange your own food and drink. The large town of Dreux is about 10 minutes drive away.

In summary, as a one night stop I would use this campsite again. It has decent, clean facilities and conveniently located. It wouldnít suit me with a young family for a longer period since there is nothing to entertain us without getting in the car.

 Stopped over on the way back from South. New owners are friendly and very helpful but the reception seems seldom to be manned in September. The site has many very old scruffy units which look like they are permanently occupied. The facilities are not wonderful for the 18 Euros we paid. This will be a great site if the new owners can get rid of the old squalid live in residents and tidy the whole place up. 

Date of Visit: October 2013 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Caravaninggreens 2 reviews from this member

 We visited this quiet campsite because it was the only one open in the area in October. It was under new ownership, the new owners being a very pleasant, helpful young couple who, when we stayed, had only owned the site for two months. The site was home to some rather dilapidated permanent caravans, but the touring pitches, in quite an attractive part of the site, were large, flat and each had their own electricity point and tap

Wifi was free, but we needed to be close to the reception when using it.

There was a small play area and a large area of grass with a river beyond.

The toilet facilities were very clean and the water hot, but there was only one 'proper' toilet and two continental in the ladies' and ideally they could be closer to the touring pitches. The new owner told us he was hoping to improve the toilets and indeed, during our four day stay, there was always someone gardening, cleaning or painting.

There is no shop in the village except for a 'tabac' but there are shops 4km away which we cycled to along quiet roads.

Dreux is a short drive away and well worth a visit. Anet has a lovely chateau and there are cycle routes not far away.

Reviewer: P*ssarro 2 reviews from this member

 Driving back from Spain each October we always have the problem of finding open campsites in the Chartres/ Dreux area. We stay on this one simply because there are no others but it is a grim experience not helped by the fact that we are usually the only tourists on the site. It consists of over a hundred dilapidated mobile homes and touring caravans which have not moved for many years. The permanent residents are generally polite and quiet and keep themselves to themselves - although this year there were a group of very noisy people behind us.

There is a free clothing bank at reception. The toilets are dire and how it managed to be approved by ACSI is a mystery.

On the positive side, the lady at reception is very nice and it is probably safer than staying on an aire or in a lay-by.

 My wife and I stayed here for one night on our way home from Benidorm. It is quite easy to get to from the N11 and D152 to the west of Dreux. For me it is only an overnight stop.

The lady who runs it is very nice and speaks enough English to be of help. The site has plenty room to drive around with a caravan, no tight corners.

There are several large pitches available which are gravel with water and electric. The caravan site is home to some very old caravans. Some look empty and some seem to have permanent residents.

There is a barrier at the entrance for security. No shop on site and I could not find a shop in the town but a bakery van drives around the site at about 9am with a good selection of bread and cakes.

There is a small pub in the town.

The toilets showers etc are dated but very clean. No soap dispensers or hand drying facilities. One wc in ladies and one in gents. There are also 3 French hole in the floor toilets if you are desperate.

No playgrounds. A small river runs by the edge of the site.
