We spent nearly 2 weeks here (a couple in our 50s, on our own). A lovely site, not too big or too small for us, near a small village. We were very warmly welcomed and had a super pitch with drainage, water and electricity. The site partly slopes so make sure you have a wheel wedge or similar. Pitches vary in size, they are not huge, but most are separated by hedges so it does feel private enough.

There were a few other British Dutch and German families on site when we were there.

Toilet blocks were basic but clean and tidy, with free hot water, normal toilet seats and paper provided, but take your own soap for hand washing afterwards. Lots of free hot water for dish washing and laundry. There is a washing machine on site.

As it was June there were few children around so maybe we were spoilt as it was fairly quiet.

The pools were delightful - excellent indoor and outdoor pools, with loungers and parasols, great for hot days, though the pools were only moderately sized so not for serious swimmers.

You can order baguette and croissants for mornings at the office which doubles as a small shop.

On site there is a cafe /bar /restaurant run by the owners/ staff. We ate there a couple of times but the choices and quality of food was not great.

We found many things to do and see just by picking up leaflets in the office.

Locally there is not a lot to see but we had bikes and drove to various attractions in the Loire valley - Tours is the closest city which has enough to see for a day or two, Amboise is not too far to drive - there is a good Aquarium near there. In the other direction is Fleche with a well known zoo. It has very large grounds so lots of walking required.

Overall a well run and well appointed site for a summer break.

As suspected, we returned here for a second year. They have just retiled the pool and restaurant area, so it's all very neat and tidy. Sanitary blocks still clean and plenty of hot water for showers etc. No soap or means of drying your hands, but toilet roll is provided, and these are UK-style toilets.

Pools still the highlight for our kids (two teens and a ten yr old). The evening entertainment was amusing and stopped by ten o'clock.

Clean sanitary blocks and plenty of hot water in showers and basins. Toilet paper provided, but not soap or any way of drying your hands. Weirdly have French Virgin Radio playing 24 hours in the sanitary block, which got a bit irritating after a while.

Playground is only tiny, and has sand around it making it quite mucky. But games room is nicely equipped and there are two Boule Pitches as well.

The swimming pools are really the centre piece of the place - really nice, heated outdoor pool with a good waterslide and another indoor pool which is really warm and has a little slide in it. There are shallow areas and deeper areas.

The whole site is pretty small, which makes it nicely friendly.

Bread, croissants etc can be ordered for the morning, 0. 90 for a baguette. There's also a small general shop, everything rather overpriced as you might expect, but good for those essentials you need at short notice.

Freezer available (Free) for refreezing your ice-blocks for cool boxes.

Parts of the site are sloping, and the ground is rather hard and stony. There are quite a lot of young trees providing some shade, and the area round the swimming pool in particular is planted with lovely flowers which are full of bees and butterflies.

Pitches separated by hedges, but not overly hemmed in, the hedges have gaps in.

There's a restaurant and a takeaway. Pizza to take away is from 8. 50.

Nearest Supermarket is a SuperU in Neuille Pont Pierre. It's not massive, but has most things. The campsite owners put up a list of local markets locations and times, well worth visiting at least one.

Good spot for exploring the Loire Valley, and also not far from the A28 so you can get there pretty quick from Calais.

The village is rather lovely despite the occasional agricultural smells from the cows.

For the first time ever, we're considering returning to a campsite a second time.

We have used this site once before and were impressed by the friendly welcome of the owners. The site is in need of a little TLC and would not take much to make a huge difference. It was very wet whilst we were there and the site roads were in a bad state having been washed away and full of large potholes. The grass on the pitches was long and being wet made things difficult. The infrastructure looks as if it has been built by a not too good DIY enthusiast.

The restaurant is excellent, offering a good choice at reasonable prices. I do like the site very much and the above negatives are made to be constructive.

A small-ish, sloping campsite not far from Tours and the A28 autoroute. The pitches themselves are mostly flat, grassy and of a good size. There are plenty of water points.

There are several unisex toilet blocks. They are of a good standard, though the floor was constantly wet.

The site is on the edge of a village which did not appear to have any commerce. There are plenty of places to walk dogs without encountering much traffic.

The on-site restaurant serves reasonably-priced food to eat in or take away.

Used this site for a stopover on our way further south. Near to motorways. Clean and pleasant site near a small village. Access to the site is via a steepish hill. Reception friendly and helpful. Wifi access was excellent on our pitch, priced at 2 euros for 24 hours.

Cannot comment on restaurant or swimming pools as did not use.

Would use again for a stopover. ACSI site costing 14 euros when we visited.
