Reviewer: BlackpoolBelle 14 reviews from this member

 I can only echo what the previous reviewers have said—this is a lovely site in a nice area.

The pitches are terraced, with a mixture of wooded ones with plenty of shade and open grassy ones. As we arrived in the middle of a thunderstorm, it became obvious that the higher wooded ones were the place to be! Having said that, the little bits of bark everywhere do tread into the caravan but its a small price to pay.

The owners are lovely, very helpful and pleasant but with very little English. I managed to converse in my fairly limited French & Monsieur made sure I understood what he was saying before I left the office. Nothing was too much problem, eg. If the internet didn’t work on our high up pitch, we could move to a better one next day—its free for as many devices as you want, but sometimes a little slow.

We didn’t use the pool due to rain/cool weather but it was very clean and looked great. The facilities are spotless and have some of the most spacious showers I’ve ever encountered. There were also washing-up sinks, 2 washing machines plus a chemical emptying point in both the ladies and the gents. Each pitch has water and electrics & you can either hook both up or not.

Bread is delivered each morning but the snack bar was closed for the season when we were there (middle of September). The campsite is just outside a small village so its very quiet, but only 5 mins drive from Mozac which has every shop you could ever need, including a huge Leclerc with 24hr petrol. It is easily accessible from the A75 or A89 and good for a night halt, although it deserves a longer stay.

All this for €16. 60 a night for 2 adults & a caravan with 10amp electrics on a fully serviced pitch! We will be back.

 We visited in August this year with 2 children aged 13 and 10. The site has a little play area and a small heated pool which our children loved. They spent hours playing and swimming on the well maintained and safe, clean area.

The toilet block is clean and showers are excellent. The washing up area is good and has plenty of sinks.

The pitches are a good size and there are taps for each pitch and it is possible to have your super pitch water working.

The bread man to its his horn at about 8. 30 every morning and he also brings apperitf's in the evening. Th on-site restaurant is fine though we only ate their once.

The wardens are very friendly and helpful but do not speak much English.

The site is perfectly situated for Clermont and the volcanoes and Mont Dore.

This is a lovely quiet, friendly site with few English people. We loved it and at 23 euros per night for the four of us, this is a fantastic site.

We would definitely go back.

 I loved this pretty little campsite and found everything immaculately maintained. Monsieur could not have been more helpful, and whilst we only stayed overnight we would gladly go back for a week or two.

Lots to do in the area, but the site is in a beautiful location only a couple of miles from a pleasant town with supermarket, etc.

Whilst not much English is spoken, with free wifi- just download the google translate app to your smart fone. If you get stuck, just type it in and press translate!

 Everything said in the previous review stands and I can't add a lot to it really.

This isn't a all inclusive geared for kids and families site, but it is a lovely site, well located and with excellent facilities (and I wouldn't want the above).

The site was easy to find. Signposted from Chatel Guyon. I telephoned the day before to make a reservation but it didn't seem to matter. The guy who runs the place's favourite phrase seemed to be 'Pas de problème'!

The showers are excellent. Warm and never a queue.

The site's water supply is fed from Volvic so what you are drinking is what you'd pay £1 a bottle for in the UK!

There was Wifi which was nice. What was even better is that we had it at our pitch! No idea how when I can't get it at the other side of my house sometimes!

There is a boules (or petanque) area. A little kids play area with a swing, sea-saw and a trampoline. There is a small pool which seemed popular (can't comment myself). Also a restaurant which looked decent, but again we didn't try it.

Very few to no other British people there when we were which for me was excellent as I got chance to practice my French. That said I'm sure if you didn't speak much French you'd get buy, everyone was very friendly.

Pricing wise, a confusing and individually unique system like every campsite seems to have. I didn't really try to work it out but it cost us around €11-€12 per night based on the final bill.

Locally places to visit:

The Puy De Dome mountain, also many other ancient volcanoes to walk up/around.

Chatel Guyon is a nice town, Royat has a nice spa/pool.

For a rainy day there is the Maison de Pierre which is about Volvic rock and also the discovery of the Volvic water source.

Overall - I'm struggling to find a reason not to give this place 10/10. If you don't speak French I'm sure you'll cope absolutely fine with pointing and a basic phrase book. (They might even speak English, I never actually tried)

 Great location, a hilside campsite affording panoramic views of the valley on the south side of the Puy de Dome.

Pitches - are spacious with electricity optional, and many are terraced to enable the fabulous views.

Facilities - 10/10 The showers wer like wet rooms!

Pool - there is a small pool overlooking the valley - great to cool down on a hot day and enjoy the view.

Minibus - a mini bus came onto the site every hour from 08:00 to shuttle people into Chatel-Guyon.

Bread - delivered daily to site, but there is a lovely patiserie a short distance away in Chatel-Guyon.

Supermarket - Large ELeclerc in Morzat, nr RIOM which is a short distance away.


We found this site en route to Loubeyrat and were pleasantly surprised. We could have been in Tuscany, the views were lovely.

The concierge on site was passionate about it job and ws obviously something of a local character judjing by his popularity and the many, photographs in the accuiel.

We have definitely added this to our list of 'must go back' places.

We used the site as a base, we visited the Puy De Dome and a number of local historical sites in the area. I would highly recommend this.

For us 2 adults, one tent, one car it was only 11 Euros a night, so a bargain too.
