 An excellent site which we chose based on the reviews on here. Everything is beautifully kept with the owners constantly cleaning and gardening to maintain high standards. The riverside pitches are lovely and we enjoyed just sitting on our pitch watching birds. I did have a paddle and saw others swimming in the river.

We had a problem with our motorhome and the owners were really helpful, immediately phoning a garage who came out within half an hour and they checked the next day that they had come again with the part.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and made use of the food van having steak frites for 12. 50 one night. There is an excellent patisserie boulangerie in the town - best croissants and bread of our trip! Good little bar to have a drink in in town too. There is a really pleasant ambience on site and in the town.

 Great site, next to the river and a short walk into Confolens. Very friendly and helpful owners.

Food van on site every evening and bread available every morning.

Note that you may need a very long electric cable as it can be quite a distance to the closest hook up point.

Would stay here again.

 The previous reviews are correct, this is a lovely site. The pitches are of a good size, well delineated and flat.

The ehu is on pods of 6, so you may need an extension. Also the water points are dotted around, so may entail a walk.

The new shower block is extremely modern, but the attached toilets are on the outside adjacent to the washing up area.

All other aspects are near perfection:- free wifi over thw whole site, a little sandy beach for the River Vienne, free canoes and fishing rods and a baker arriving every day with loads of goodies.

The town is extremely pretty and there is a very large covered market hall for the bargains.

Loads of well marked cycle routes, of varying length and difficulty, start from the centre of the town.

All in all amazing value for money site

 This is a superb site in, for us, a perfect location on the edge of Confolens a lovely old town to walk around. Situated on the river bank pitches vary in size but are all flat and a good size. The sanitary facilities are very good and clean(no toilet paper) but one block has toilets opening onto the dishwashing area. A bit too close possibly. The young owners are delightful and speak good English. Bird tables and insect houses are dotted around the site. We had 3 nights having planned 1. First 2 were high season and still only 21€. Very good value for the standard of site with good free wifi. At ACSI rates it is a steal. Do visit local villages St Germain and Esse by bike or vehicle. A nice circular route. Hope to return as it makes a great first stop from the ferry.

 Recently purchased by the new owners, Dorothee and Benjamin who previously managed the site for 2 seasons. This is an immaculately kept site, on the banks of the Vienne. Free canoeing and fishing. Good children's play area. Bread delivered to the site 8. 30 everyday. Sanitaires recently refurbished. Lovely eco friendly couple. Hot food cooked on site twice a week. BBQs available to use, picnic area by the beach. 10 minute flat walk into the very historic town centre, With plenty of small shops, bars and eateries,

Can't praise this hidden gem enough! Only 13€ with electric and free wi-fi all over the site with ACSI. Come!

 We are outnumbered at least 5/1 by campervans on this lovely riverbank site.

Very well maintained site with clean modern sanitary facilities. We are here in early June and remarkably busy for time of year, but I think that reflects the €13 per night ACSI prices and free wifi which is not the fastest, but at least seems to work all across the site.

Little to add to excellent previous reviews but there is a reasonably cycle friendly road passing the site which is on a recognised cycle way with signs to say it is a shared space, if motorists read them?

Friendly warden service. If you like easy access to shops, cafes, etc. You won't be disappointed with this site. I think canoë hire is free on site. The lovely River Vienne is accessible from the site banks but infants would need supervision. We'd come back here.

 We're sitting here overlooking the Vienne on a glorious evening. The pitch is private with surrounding hedges. The sanitary blocks (2) are immaculate but like most French sites no loo paper and seats. The showers are hot and clean. Free fishing plenty of carp, barbel etc. , located just outside town but easy 500m walk into centre. Site managers could not be more helpful and on arrival we were told to pitch where we liked. This is a popular site so get here early to get a good pitch near the river. You will also need a long lead to plug in electric and you could find yourself walking a distance to get water, depends where you pitch. There is an Intermarche not too far away on the edge of town and an Aldi. Staying here for at least a week cos at 11euros a night you couldn't wish for better and the fishing is great (much to wife's dismay he he) I recommend this site highly although no bread in the morning. Good for my waistband! Not much here for the kids but the river is shallow and we did see some kids mucking about in canoes (which are free) and a lot of people were swimming in the river which seemed to be waist deep all over and not fast flowing.

 The english speaking hosts are welcoming and nothing is to much trouble. The site is very well maintained new modern upto date shower toilet block. The river vienne runs along the site excellent for fishing and free canoeing or pleasant evenings with a chilled bottle. The quaint town of confolens is 2 mins walk which has local amenities, intermarche and lidl 5 mins drive. This site will be visited by us again to explore the surrounding countryside. This is a hidden gem many thanks for a quite and relaxing stay.

 Excellent site! good communication with site operators and very close to town. My wife and I enjoyed our visit at this site when we used this site on route to Spain. Many thanks for all the help we received being a disabled person nothing was to much trouble from the staff, will visit again.
