 Excellent customer service. Mike greeted us on our arrival, and both him and Cath made us feel very welcome, providing us with a nice bit of hardstanding, and lots of information.

Excellent walks directly from the campsite ( Mike gave us a map), and close to the village of Obterre.

Be warned- come prepared with food as there isn't a local shop or restaurant ( possibly in the summer?), although a bread van comes to the campsite some days.

Many thanks for a lovely, quiet stay - we might be back!

 What a lovely site, set in rural France, lovingly owned & managed by the very friendly & helpful Cath & Mike.

We were warmly welcomed on arrival, shown to our very spacious pitch where all the services were explained.

The toilet & shower block is modern & always immaculately clean.

The bread van arrived every morning with delicious goodies, which were delightful. Lots to see & do around the area & Loches the nearest big town was charming, especially on market days.

Great area for walking & cycling too. We would highly recommend Le Cormier.

 Mike and Cath are great hosts, they work tirelessly to make the site attractive and enjoyable. The pitches are huge - when Mike showed us to our pitch I originally thought it was two pitches but it was all our own space.

The pitch had a number of trees which was great as we had a choice of sun or shade by moving around within the pitch, but in view of the heatwave we mostly wanted shade.

The pitch also had our own picnic table which was a nice touch. Unfortunately, due to the heatwave, the site had a bit of a "scorched earth" appearance to it with the trees shedding their leaves even though it was only mid-July.

Other campers were predominantly Brits. The showers and toilets were modern and immaculately clean, although the shower head seemed to produce a very fine spray that went everywhere rather than a nice deluge.

One really nice touch is that we were given a business card with Mike and Cath's phone numbers on so we could call for help if we found ourselves in trouble.

All in all, a very pleasant and peaceful site which we would happily use again if we visit that part of France again.

We didn't find a great deal to do in the immediate area, although I don't think we stayed long enough to explore properly, and the intense heat meant we were disinclined to go searching for places to go so we probably didn't do it justice.

Had to drive quite a way for a supermarket which closed most days 12. 30 to 14. 30, and the petrol station wouldn't accept UK cards for self payment when the kiosk was shut.

 We stayed here again on route to Spain. Great site with exceptionally friendly and helpful owners. The site is very good for walking with or without dogs. Lovely pretty village and good shopping further afield. We will be back on our return home. Thanks to Mike, Cath and Bessie

 Huge, well demarcated pitches with enough space for our folding camper, car, and - had we had them - pup tents, with space to play too. Pitches with varying amounts of shade were available. Darts and games were to be found in the barn, and the plunge pool was an added luxury. The whole site was very orderly, and well kept. The proprietors were friendly and extremely helpful. The toilets and showers were well looked after and clean. The local area was lovely and we were very much taken with the nearby town of Loches. We were only there for a couple of days, but are already planning to go back.

 Just returned from our second visit to this very peaceful site, we were welcomed my Mike and Kath like old friends. Because my wife and myself are into our 80s'Mike offered to help with our awning which was very gratefully accepted, The site is immaculately kept and the loos and showers though in portable enclosures were also very clean and tidy. There is plenty to see and do in the area with the market at Loche a must. The highlight of the day was when Bess ( Mikes mum) stopped to chat while on her daily walk around the. We will certainly visit this site again though it might be in one of the quite lovely studios which are also on the site

 Blissful site - 10/10/10

Found this site through UKCampsite.co.uk and sent an email to the owners, Mike & Cath, who left the Uk to give this a go 9 years ago. From the outset their service and attention to detail was brilliant.

The site is five acres around a typical French farmhouse courtyard, which houses a barn, and three gates/ studios as well as two owners' residences. The pitches are huge, served with electricity and satellite feeds, plus they encourage you to drain your grey waste tot he hedge - so much less faff than using a Wastemaster and very green.

The site is extremely peaceful, and set in very pleasant countryside with a mass of small villages and hamlets nearby. Nearest town is Loche, which is delightful and supports multiple visits, as it is rich in history as well as offering commanding views of the countryside.

Tours is about an hour away by car, and offers all the big city stuff, as well as some delightful churches, monuments and restaurants, but perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the site is how relaxed it all is.

We met several couples that return each year, Sangria was shared around the table, and it is easy to understand why so many people go back year after year after year.

As Mike told us when we arrived, they wanted to create the kind of site that themselves enjoyed staying on, and despite the worst efforts of French bureaucracy to stop them are doing a great job.

Only downside at the moment is the washing facilities - due to French red tape they are still fighting to put up a purpose built shower block, but hopefully this will be in before Easter 2018. We were't bothered as we use the facilities son board the van, and fresh drinking water is just a few yards from the pitches.

Will definitely return - there are only 12 pitches, so booking is a good idea!

 Lovely quiet site. Ideal size for us as it was very peacful and relaxing. Everyone very friendly. Facilities spotless. Plenty of villages and towns to explore nearby. One tabac in the village 5 mins walk for a drink or goods from the shop. Van delivers bread etc a few times a week. Loches within 15 minute drive.

Would definitely return.

 As predicted, we did return, but for a three-week stay this time since we had found it so relaxing, as do many of their returning 'guests'. We even reserved the same pitch as last year! This period also coincided with the Tour de France which my OH could view in the barn with other campers.

Mike and Cath continue to work hard updating facilities as well as running the 'ship' on a day-to-day basis. The plunge pool was open and in use during the hot spell. The 'garden-setting' grounds are maintained to a high standard, even down to removing the falling leaves when they littered the pitch. We were again able to use the shower room of an unoccupied studio ahead of work starting shortly on a dedicated amenities facility, though towards the end of our stay portable loo and shower cubicles were installed since the rental studios would be in use during the coming weeks.

We revisited some of our favourite haunts as well as seeking out some new ones. Having never visited a chateau during many holidays in France (some say when you have seen one, you have seen them all), Mike and Cath recommended Chenonceau as their local favourite and we were not disappointed. We did Vouvray the same day and bought a few bottles of the 'tiny bubbles' from a wine cooperative.

Montresor made another pleasant excursion, though we didn't visits it's chateau. There's a pretty stroll beside the river though, and a small art exhibition (unusual 3-D stained glass technique) installed in an old timbered building. Good lunch in one of several restaurants.

Our visit to picturesque Angles-sur-l'Anglin coincided with a medieval weekend and craft fair. Tasty lunch at British-owned No. 15 tea room.

Again we had lunch at L'Auberge de la Source in Saint Flovier, ten minutes away. Same price at €12. 30 for four courses and house wine - a no-brainer, don't know how they do it for the money. Their take-away pizza (chips available as a side order) on Friday and Saturday evenings is excellent too. Friendly ambience, clean, frequented by locals as well as tourists.

Excellent markets at Loches and La Roche Posay (another pretty town for strolling) with smaller one for fruit, veg, fish and meat at Chatillon on Fridays. Bread van continues to call on site several days a week, plus there is a small grocery store for basics in the village which is about a 10/15 minutes stroll. For a 'big shop' we used Intermarche at Chatillon.

In conclusion, one of my all-time favourite French sites.
