Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

This site has appeared in the ACSI discount scheme this year, so we decided to try it for an overnighter. The site was easy to find, at the top of a hill on the way out of the town. There is a barrier at reception, the friendly warden invited us to choose our own pitch.

The site is an attractive wooded area, on a bit of a slope, with a large touring area and some mobile homes towards the back of the site. The pitches were not well cared for, the grass was long on most pitches, and wet ground had been damaged by wheels. However, many were very large, and as it was quiet we had lots of choice.

The sanitary block is in the middle of the site, well described by others, however it was not all open, and though it was mostly clean enough, the presence of heaps of dead leaves indicated that it hadn't been prepared for the season. The lighting was on a timer, and went out unexpectedly after a short time, leaving you in the dark.

There was no evidence of a bar or restaurant being open.

There is a path leading down from the site to the river, this was becoming overgrown, and we found it wasn't possible to follow the river into town, the path just led steeply up back to the site.

We cycled down the road into town, only 5 minutes or so by bike, but a bit longer pushing back up the hill. Town is very attractive with waterways, worth a visit.

We weren't struck on this site, maybe it would be better in season when it was busier, but then the facilities might be a bit stretched. It just felt very unloved. However, it was ok for a stopover.

Excellent wooded site near interesting small town. Large pitches well shaded. Near river. Adjacent to good free town swimming pool. Nice walks near river into town. Good rural walks and bike rides.

There are new owners who were very friendly. Excellent pizzas in the small snack bar. They have regular falconry displays. The owner is a falconer and was feeding his baby owl when we were there. WiFi is in snack bar area. Wash blocks clean and good.

Stayed here for a week.

Large pitches varying between open, partly shaded or completely shaded.

Was quite empty whilst we were there, only about 25% occupancy.

Delightful site with modern facilities (the main ablution building is a maze of showers, basins, toilets, washing up areas. Exploring finds new ones at each visit!). Some pitches are quite a distance from it.

The Restaurant offers fairly standard/simple fare based on grilled meats with Frites. But servings are generous and prices reasonable. The bar likewise.

There is an outdoor area for eating/drinking as well as a large indoor space with wooden tables and chairs.

WIFI is free, but may only be used within the confines of the bar/restaurant area. A daily password is issued, and 'madame' is insistent that no attempt is made to use wifi from your pitch, even if you have 'long range' equipment. She monitors it!

The site is a ten/fifteen minute walk from the delightful small town, which is ringed by a canal, fed by the local river. Well worth boating round as there are several 'displays' set up, which can only be seen from a boat. We launched directly from the campsite (access path from site to river is 200 metres through the wood owned by the site. (walks along the river are lovely). You can paddle to the town. Then, a bit of portage, to get over the lock/weir gets you onto the towns canal for the circum-navigation.

We visited Chateaudun, which had a huge medieval fair on at the time (jousting, gruesome 'field hospital' enactments (very funny), lots of stalls and market. The whole town alive with festivities. A great day out; Paris was an hour plus (depending on time of day and traffic); Versailles; Chartes with its fantastic cathedral (best stained glass windows in the world!) and its fabulous, free, son et lumiere (walk about) show. Not to be missed. Chartes is about a thirty minute drive.

All in all this was an excellent week.

Stopped here overnight on way from Calais to Dorsogne. Lovely site, access fine especially with large twin axle like ours. Baguettes and croissants etc that can be ordered delicious.

There's a play area for the children, a bar and restaurant and the facilities ie toilets etc are all fine too.

Would use again, but a little far from he main tolls, so potentially added to our journey by using this site

Stayed at this lovely site for one night on our way further south. It's a nice quiet site, away from the main roads, with a lane along one edge. Pitches are a good size, mostly flat with electricity. Rates were reasonable. Wifi is available at the restaurant for those eating a meal only. We were quite near to the restaurant and daughter could get wifi on her tablet from our pitch.

Small but functional municipal indoor swimming pool is right next door to the site and free for campers to use, you could either lock up your clothes or take them poolside. There are plans on the walls for a new pool which when it's done will be lovely. The site does have a small playground for younger children.

Restaurant was reasonably priced and food very nice. Bread is available to order in the morning.

There is a nice little walk along the river directly downhill behind the site. The town centre is a little walk away, we didn't have time for a wander round but on taking a wrong turn trying to find the site, it did look really nice.

Toilets are in a couple of different blocks, showers in the main, small but maze like block. Take your own toilet roll.

A nice little site whether for a one night stop off or for a few days.

Lovely friendly site, warm greeting from the bouncy happy Madame. No English, but we managed very well with her words and ours. Very wooded site, large pitches, but if you want satellite TV forget it, too many trees in the line of sight. Lots of sunshine came through, so a pleasure to sit on the pitches. The toilet block, always clean, is a maze. You find new parts of it each time you visit. Bonneval market on Mondays well worth a visit. Oh and once we saw a red squirrel. There is a municipal pool next door for campers use if requested a ticket is issued. A walk along the river is lovely, but hazardous for lone children.
