We used this site for an overnight stop only. The site was busy even in September and the four pitches per hedged bay arrangement were incredibly cramped and offered no view or privacy whatsoever.

The facilities were clean and of a decent standard and the staff were pleasant. The river area at the back, through the gate, was open to general public use and was quiet at the time although not especially clean and you would not want to picnic there.

We paid 19 euros with an ACSI card - extra charge for 2nd dog and didn't feel it was good value.

In conclusion this site is badly let down by the arrangement of the pitches and we would not choose to use it again.

Only wish there had been more reviews of this site before we visited. For the previous 2 years we have been incredibly lucky and visited the most amazing campsites and looking through the website for this one we had the same high hopes, but this site really does not compare. We were a group of 9 - 3 families, 2 of which stayed in a chalet and 1 family camping in a tent - so we experienced all of the variations.

To start positively - yes it is only about 10-15 minutes from Isle Sur La Sourge, which is pleasant enough as a town (if expensive) BUT what the brochure doesn't tell you is that it is just off the main route into town, not a real problem during the day - but you can really hear the road at night - add to that the noise from a nearby kennels, dogs that barked NON STOP through the night, getting worse at feeding time at about 6am, this was not the peaceful idyll it suggests.

Yes the site is on the river, which can be accessed through a private gate - again sounds wonderful, but this was the side of the river where the canoeing ended, so there was minibuses and coaches zooming down the road close to the fence making it dusty and dirty. There was only a little portion of the river bank you could sit on and this was filthy, the 1st day we went there to have lunch and perhaps swim we had to clear broken glass, the left overs of the previous days lunch, dirty tissues. Also as it is the end point for canoeing the small woods smelled as people were clearly using it as toilet. You wouldn't want to send the children there on their own (and ours were 12!) due to the vans, canoes and some really unsavoury large groups of men. Again not the peaceful idyll it suggests.

The campsite itself was ok - a lot smaller than it looks in pictures, infact the pitches, which are described as 100 square foot were infact for 4 pitches. Yes they look big, but when you try to cram 4 plots on there, not so large! Tents were in with caravans and campers - there was even a plot in front of the chalet. Crammed on top of each other with little room for personal space. Just seemed to be interested on getting the most out of the small footprint of the site, which meant that when our neighbours decided to stay up until 2am drinking, swearing and laughing - so did our children. No 10 O'clock quiet at THIS site!

The cafe/snack bar/pizzeria? It was open, but slowing down clearly for the end of the season - 2 women, one permanently on the phone, the other smoking - yes as she was cooking. We had take away chips from there one night which were fine, but wasn't an experience I would recommend.

The good points? The people on Reception were very helpful (until we tried to check out, then they made us clean, clean & re-clean the chalet with no cleaning implements or products including mopping the floor with a disgusting floor cloth)and helped us with canoeing bookings etc.

There was a play ground - sparse.

There was a games room with a pinpong table, table football and pinball machine in and a tv room.

The shower/toilet facilities were fine - clean and warm.

There was laundry facilities (but at E5 a time the most expensive I have seen)

There just seemed to be no personal touches, just really not a family run site, not somewhere with lots to do at the site and really not a very peaceful place.

Isle de la Sorguette.

To start the camp site within 1. 5km of one of the most lovely small towns I have come across in southern France. The town is full of very nice restaurants and bars, as well as excellent independent shops, all along the river front. It really is beautiful.

So to the camp site. It is well situated with good links to Avignon and Le'Orange, as well as into the near by hills and vineyard country. There are also plenty of activities around including canoeing which we took part in which was a lot of fun along the Sorgette river.

The reception staff at the camp site were on the whole very helpful, and could offer advice, or help with bookings, and spoke good English.

The camp pitch itself offered good shade which was very nice in the 36 - 42 degree weather we enjoyed. However the pitches are very small. We had room for our tent, and our car but little else. Once the tent was up there was no room to sit out, or even put up a swing ball. It did feel cramped. The pitch was also quite baron and dusty which is understandable considering the prolonged heat wave, but it did mean everything we had got extremely dusty and dirty.

The Toilet / Shower / Washing facilities were all excellent and were the strength of the site. They were always well stocked and clean and maintained to a good standard, and to our relief all the toilets had full toilet bowls.

The Site restaurant was a big disappointment, it wasn't very nicely appointed, and the staff were very dismissive. It is never nice seeing someone cook your food with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth. Enough Said.

The claim from the site of direct river access is also slightly misleading. The site has its own gate with a keypad lock which gives access to the riverside. The site does not own, or developed any of the riverside. The river itself is very nice, and there is a lovely swimming area around a weir. However it is extensively used by locals and other tourists and the overgrown bank becomes very busy, with many groups of local teenagers. Not the most relaxing. The same river bank is obviously used at night as well, as it is littered with the usual fallout that come with being used as a youth night time hangout.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, however if you are looking for a site that can cater all your needs without leaving the site, this inst it. However the facilities were good, and the location was excellent, so if like us you were just using it as a base, and somewhere to sleep while you explored the area, then it is more than adequate.

It's interesting to read the two latest reviews of this site. It's one of very few places over the years where we have gone in, looked around, and left without staying. Why? We just didn't like the 'four pitches in a bay' set up. All the bays had one or two caravans there already, had spread out their gear to try to discourage others coming in, and we felt we would be intruding wherever we pitched. So we left. Am I allowed to submit a review for a site we didn't stay at !

Reviewers- mature couple with campervan and bikes.

An update on our review from last year.

When we arrived at the site reception it was closed for lunch, and as there is a barrier, it wasn't possible to choose a pitch without checking in. However there is a large car park just outside, so we waited for them to open.

When we were there last, low season with tent, we were told to choose a pitch, then come back and tell them the number, but this time we were given about 5 pitches to choose from, and had to make a fairly quick decision as there were several people checking them out, this is a popluar site.

The pitches are all good quality though.

I think the toilet blocks are getting a bit tired now, in need of some refurbishment. The shower I used, late evening, had no light, it relied upon an automatic switch, and if no one else was around to set it off, you ended up in the dark!

The site does try to be green, there are lots of signs around about recycling and cutting down on the use of water and lights. You certainly need a torch.

We have used this site many times and always look forward to coming back. It is situated about 3k (10 min cycle) from Isle sur la Sorgue, a pretty town known for its huge Sunday Brocante and Provencal market.

The pitches are enclosed for 4, some of them have chalets or static vans in 1 or 2 of them. Some of the pitches are rather hard for tents too.

There are several facilities, mostly shared, though there are separate private washbasins. Washing up is good, and I think there is a laundry. The reception has a small shop, or there are supermarkets in the town.

The site backs onto a river, we have seen canoeing on there, and there are restaurants in the vicinity, and a patisserie not far away.

Negatives for me are just the shared facilities, and it's quite pricey, but good value.
