 I rang the camp up to check they took 8m motorhome as the ACSI book indicated they didn't. We were given a good size pitch but the overhanging tree branches caught the roof so we asked to move.

Think a lot of branches were in need of the chop. We paid Ä17pn with ACSI. Only 1 facility block was open which was near the entrance and a long walk from our pitch.

This included the elsan. We didn't use the indoor pool and outdoor 1 was closed. It has a drive over grey waste disposal. We did order bread. It is a busy site and very close to the town.

We ate at Le Boeuf Noisett (might need to book) and although the choice was very narrow - steak or fish at Ä30 for 2 courses it was the nicest meal I had in all our 6 week holiday.

 A busy camp site in September. Noisy but not excessively so going quiet by 11 in terms of bar and social areas. Facilities are ok unisex toilets/ showers.

Shower cubicles are fine & good size but showers themselves are poor with 10 second maximum on water delivery before need press again and the shower heads so close to wall that it is difficult to get underneath the water.

Swimming pool is reasonable size but probably can feel very full high season. Pitches are reasonable size and bush privacy screens for most of them, which is good as everything is close together.

It is basically excellent for access to visit Saumar Town centre which is a short flat 10/15 minute walk away.

A small tourist train comes direct to camp site and does a circuit of important historic areas for 8 euros per person. Both French and English speaking guide of town, including castle ( you can get off and go inside if choose and catch later train back ).

There are cycle routes nearby along Loire River.

There is Lidl 10 minutes from the site in the opposite direction to the town.

Bread can be ordered night before.

Staff are friendly if a little harassed, but it is a really busy town site.

There is a barrier and code access and you won't get in until 14. 00 if you are just arriving as this is when the office opens for booking. However once they open it is a quick easy process. Highly recommend booking before arrival as several people were turned away who had not booked.

NB there is a camping carpark area just by the side of the camp site which has several pitches if you don't want park facilities just town ease of access.

 A large and busy commercial campsite on an island on the Loire river, about 15-20 minute walk into Saumur town centre.

Reception staff spoke English, if your French isn't very strong, and the site itself attracts international visitors from across Europe.

Great view of the chateau from the swimming pool and the poolside restaurant was good but not cheap.

Site fees otherwise are reasonable (although we weren't there during peak season).

 The pitch had no grass so if it rained dread to think how muddy it would be. It had a tap and drain.

Overall impression of site was not good as too many trees and felt very scrappy.

Would not go away.

 Yet another visit to this site to again take part in Anjou Velo Vintage.

We love the location and the cycling opportunities at this site.

We knew the site would be busy for the AVV weekend (normally in early July but moved to the end of August due to Covid) so had booked well in advance. Others who had not booked were turned away as the site was full so keep an eye on the dates). Reception was closed between 12. 00 and 2. 00pm as it was out of high season but booking in after 2. 00pm efficient and quick.

Our pitch this time, C82, was large, quite flat and the ground was very solid. Due to the trees it was mainly in the shade but that was welcome in the hot weather. We chose a Privilege Pitch which had EHU, water and drainage on the pitch itself but standard pitches are available. There are some new pitches that look as if they have a private toilet/shower and kitchenette on them but as the site was so busy we could not really check them out.

The facilities were fine and cleaned a couple of times a day. Hot water was available at all times and we never had to queue despite it being busy.

We ate in the bar/restaurant one night and the food was good and reasonably priced. It did get busy though so booking is probably advisable. Bread had to be ordered from Reception the day before and collected from there unlike last time when we collected it form the cabin near the bar.

We didn't use the pool but it looked inviting and was always busy.

Even this late in the season there were still some organised activities for youngsters along with wine tastings and a small craft market for adults. There was live music in the bar one night but we didn't go as we were out in the town.

We really like this site and will no doubt return again.

 We booked 5 nights at Ile d'Offard.

The site was everything we had hoped for in a site.

Some of the pitches were VERY shaded but through luck we got allocated one which got quite a lot of sun. (I don't know if you could choose your own pitch as we saw newcomers driving round so I don't know if they were lost or just trying to choose a pitch (we arrived on the sunday of the busy Velo vintage weekend)).

The only downside to note, and it is not the campsites fault, is that there is a trainline that runs through the North of Saumur that has trains running on it occasionally through the night. But this would effect the whole of the town and not just this campsite. But to sum it up, we would go back there.

 This was our second visit to this site.

It is ideally situated for us, a short walk/bike ride from Saumur town centre which is well worth a visit.

There are a variety of pitch options, including fully serviced (electric, water and waste on pitch), standard (electric on pitch, water nearby) and Campetoiles which are wooden tents on stilts for sleeping with a fixed table and benches under, designed for those without car such as cycle, kayak and walking tourists. There are also a number of safari tents and cabins for rent.

The Reception was friendly and efficient, even though the site was full over the weekend due to the Anjou Velo Vintage festival in the town which we there for.

The site has a gate with code for entering and exiting. It's nicely laid out and has many trees etc in the camping part, offering some shade. Pitches are separated by low bushes.

The pitches are not huge but are adequate and have been stabilised with matting as the site is quite sandy. This had rucked a bit so we were glad that we had a groundsheet with us to help flatten things out.

The facilities were good and cleaned at least twice a day. In each indoor block there were shower cubicles which included a sink as well as a shower, washing up sinks and clothes washing sinks plus coin operated washing machines and dryers and a communal freezer for ice blocks etc at no extra charge. There was always plenty of hot water. The toilets are in the adjacent block, plus there were some outside toilets and the black water disposal. The toilets had paper, soap dispenser and a hand dryer.

The pool was being well used while we were there though we did not use it. Adjacent to the pool there's a bar/restaurant. We ate there a couple of times and found the food good and the prices reasonable. We didn't book and got a table each night, though we do eat early. Bread etc can be collected from the Cabin next to the bar/restaurant but has to be ordered the day before from either the Cabin or Reception.

For children there was a simple play area, bouncy castle and a play fort with slides, climbing frame etc.

In the evening there were events such as a small market, wine tasting etc a few evenings a week and live bands at the weekend.

The Petit Train which tours the sights of Saumur, including the Chateau, stops at the entrance to the campsite and you can get on and off there if you wish.

Despite being on the river we were not bothered by any biting insects etc and there was a team of groundsmen on site each day looking after the grounds and keeping the gardens nice.

We really like this site though from other reviews it's not everyone's cup of tea. We will return next year for the Velo Vintage but would happily go back at any time.

 Although on an island in the middle of the Loire, you couldn't really see any water and you had to hire one of the cabins if you wanted a view of the chateau. I found this very disappointing.

Our pitch was OK but the place seemed very crowded, like camping in the middle of a campervan showground. Lengthy queues at reception.

The restaurant was very good, the saving grace for us. We wouldn't go back.

 Rather disappointed with the site.

My main gripe- I chose the site as it has a heated outdoor pool. Iím a serious swimmer and need a pool wherever I go. The water was so cold I only stuck it for 20 minutes and Iím a dedicated outdoor swimmer. I only saw one other family try the pool while I was there and they left after 5 minutes.

The pitches arenít large and are a bit scruffy.

Reception sells a few groceries but there is no shop as such.

Good position near Saumur.

Toilets etc very clean, mixed sex.

Staff speak very good English.

Riverside pitches arenít actually on the river but behind hedges.

Lots of cabins etc.

Good for children I would think.

Some pitches a long way from water supply.

At the time of our visit only the main toilet block was open so we were all rather crammed into one area.

I would not return.

 Nice clean site. Level large private pitches. Shame not direct on the River. Toilet and showers clean and modern take your own toilet roll.

Nice pool very busy didnít get chance to use. Great location over the bridge to Saumur and the wonderful chateau.

Would recommend.
