 Huge pitches!

Ours was 10 metres wide and 25 metres deep!

Although there are riverside pitches, access is not immediate as there is a fence all along the river path.

Pitches are very shaded/shaded/open. So choice according to your taste.

There is a grass and sand 'beach' area which is used by many locals, and can be noisy-ish. Not that it bothered us much. But, if you'd prefer not to be near that area, there are tons of other pitches well away from the beach area.

To access the beach means exiting the campsite and walking down the adjacent path. Good swimming and boat launch for paddling either up or down river (the current is not excessive).

On the other side of the campsite is the famous Canal de Bourgogne. Access immediately on leaving the campsite. Great cycle/walking path (fully tarmac-ed). Another option for your boat/canoe/kayak

The ablutions are clean and well maintained. Reasonably modern. More than adequate.

Washing machine and tumble drier. Use, and pay at reception.

Walk, pedal or drive into town. Slightly run-down feel, but not totally lacking in charm.

Three good restaurants we tried: In order of preference:

1. Autour du Pressoir

2. Le St Pere

3. Le P'tit Gourmet

All were, at least, good. Number one had a lovely outdoor eating area, small, freshly cooked and excellent menu and wine list.

The campsite offers a nightly menu cooked/prepared by the campsite manager. Very good value and not bad at all! He has upped his game since earlier reviews intimate!

From the campsite we visited :

Auxerre. Great cathedral.

Chablis. Pleasant old town. Eating and drinking the famous wine in town can be expensive!

Noyers-sur-Serein. A beautiful medieval town well worth visiting

Fontenay Abbey. The largest and oldest surviving Cistercian Abbey in the world. Well worth the visit.

 Nice open wooded site situated across the river from village centre, in between river and canal.

Unmarked spaces, clean and modern toilet block, some noise from trains at night but not bothersome.

Excellent value using ASCI card.

In a lovely country area with lots of châteaus and abbeys.

 Excellent clean facilities. Helpful warden. Close to town. Good centre for touring. Shame about the TGV train noise throughout the day and night. Grass could have been shorter. Site set between the river and canal. No set pitches just find a space! Plenty of spaces for tents. Four static lodges on site. Site office not open during the afternoon, check the sign on the door. Plenty of leaflets in the office to give ideas of where to go. Bread can be ordered daily.

 The site is located midway between Troyes (on the A5) and Auxerre (on the A6) and suited us for an overnight on the way back from the south of France. It is on a block of land between the canal de Bourgogne and L'Armancon river.

The site is casually run by a very friendly but laid back owner/manager. The charge was about €20 for unit, electric and 3 people. Free WiFi is available in the vicinity of the reception area.

The sanitaires are separate for men and women. There was plenty of hot water, with good showers and washing cubicles. The block was adequately clean and in good condition.

The site maintenance is slightly neglected and the pitches could do with being clearly marked. On arrival the owner indicates you to find a pitch, which is troublesome as it is not clear where they start and end.

The owner recommended the Marco Polo restaurant for our evening meal, which was located about 1km from the site. We had a very good meal for the price, especially as the wine was only €4 for a demi-litre carafe. The town has an interesting trail which includes the view from the church and the Fosse Dionne resurgence.

The site is located about 200 metres from a railway track. On arrival there was no noticeable noise and the first time we became aware was when we were walking back from the town and watched a very long goods train pass. It was only when we had settled for the night that it became a problem. It was only then that the rumble just got louder and louder until it was really loud. The noise was such that I was woken every time during the night on what seemed a fairly regular basis. It may be that this is not a nightly 'feature' of the site as it is not mentioned in the previous review. If I was to use this site again I would definitely wear ear plugs. The town's name - Tonnerre - translates as thunder, perhaps for a reason!

It was quite surreal first thing in the morning to see the mist above the canal and the sight of a boat silently moving past the campsite.

 This municipal site is right on the banks of the Burgundy Canal, which is great for cycling.

The site could be absolutely beautiful with loads of mature broadleaf trees all over, but there is an element of laid back casualness about the whole place.

There are no designated pitches so you park wherever and however you like. The electric supply is 30amp as they hadn't bothered to put in lower rated fuses.

There is an asphalt road within the site and hard standing areas for motor homes dotted around.

The sanitaires are a bit bizarre, they are are clean, with the hottest water we have ever encountered in the washing/washing up areas and the shower rooms. However, the modern building has acres of floor to ceiling glass, so you can be brushing your teeth and waving to passersby at the same time.

The site drains very well, even though the soil is a bit claggy. The dryer sites are those bordering the canal fence, up by the sanitaire block.

There is a cafe/bar on site where the 'guardien' will enthusiastically, but inexpertly prepare meals.

There is a very large LeClerc centre about 2 km in one direction and an Auchan and Lidl, an equal distance in the opposite direction.

Tonnerre is worth a visit and is a very short walk from the site, Chablis, Nogent and Tanlay are all in cycling distance and worth seeing.

No double axled units are allowed.

Definitely worth a stopover or even longer, especially at the very cheap rates and free wifi.
