 This is the 4th time we've stayed on this site. We usually stay for 4 or 5 nights, as we never stay on any site for much longer than that. We mainly go for the cycling, which is possible to do on very quiet roads in the surrounding area. The site is relatively new (2011), and set in a quiet area near Grillon. Pitches vary in size, but all are a decent size. They are quite flattish, but a lot do suffer from ruts, so be careful! The pitches at the front have much less shade than those further back. There are also quite a few statics, which are mainly to the right of the entrance. There is a pool and also a bouncy castle for children. At the time of our stay that only operated for the weekend.

The toilet block is unisex, and all inside, with heating on cold mornings. No loo paper. Cleaned early in the morning, so not interfering with wanting a shower at 8 or 9am. There are 2 washing machines, but no driers. But with the mistral sometimes blowing, it takes no time to dry your washing!

Owners speak English, and the site doesn't close at lunchtime (at least not when we've been in June and September). I went in a couple of times to ask something when they were having their lunch, but they cheerfully interrupted it to serve me even though I said I could wait.

Grillon is a small village with a market on Saturday, it's within walking distance.

The site accepts the ACSI card at 15 Euros per night.

For us the site suits what we want from it, and we'll certainly visit again if in the area.

 We came across this site courtesy of the ACSI app when were trying to discover a site of infinite loveliness so we could put down some roots/corner steadies for a week or more. This wasn't it, so we moved on after just one night.

The pros:

If you have a young family, there's a bouncy castle, an oblong swimming pool (quite new) and floor fountains.

The cons:

Pitches are scrubby and stony. There's not much shade. The overall effect is shabby. The sanitaire block is basic, no frills.

I know this is a relatively new site but, the owners could make so much more of it; with just a bit more care and attention (fill in the holes in the access roads/cut the grass/trim the hedges and re-plant where necessary. Make the site look as if somebody loves it!).

One night was enough for us. There are better sites in the area.

 When approaching this site come via Grillon on the D20 rather than approaching up from the D18. This latter route is really only a track from the vineyards and is narrow, ditched and potholed.

The site is new, set up in 2011, so some of the hedging between the plots has to be imagined, rather than seen, Most of the pitches are flat(ish) but often rutted, they vary in size up to very large. Those overlooking the fields towards the villagr of Grillon, have a wonderful view for now. The whole fence has Leylandii type trees planted which will block it in 4 or 5 years.

The unisex sanitary block is new, with good powerful showers and plenty of hot water; there is good fast free wifi throughout the whole site and a rather posh swimming pool with waterslides.

There are a couple of bakers in the village but Valreas with its LeClerc, Lidl. Aldi and Intermarche is under 3 miles away.

The site is isolated but the whole area is so flat that the cycling is very easy ( we don't do hills or headwinds!). Apart from Valreas there is Richerenches (the self styled truffle capital of the world), in very easy reach.

Further afield there is Nyons, Grignan, Vinsobres and even Montelimar with its overpriced nougat.

It is a calm relaxing campsite and worth at least a night or two.
