 This site was better than expected: a good new sanitation block that was large and clean,

Friendly staff, a good leisure room,

Good refuse area and, critically, located directly on the river weaving its way into Chartres,

1 mile from the spectacular cathedral.

 We'd heard that the campsite name had changed so made a visit hoping that other changes had been made. And found a great refurbished sanitary block.

The M/F toilets are now in separate rooms, the shower and basin room is still mixed but there are lots more cubicles now.

Some of the pitches now have all weather matting to protect them, and a new MH service area was being built across from reception. They seem to be doing bike hire now too.

A food van was there for 2 of our nights, we didn't use it.

Very pleasant young people in reception.

 This is our second visit to this site and improvements are ongoing however certain areas still need attention.

It's a very convenient site to visit the historic town of Chartres and only takes about 15/20 minutes to walk into.

In May the site filled up as the afternoon progressed and by evening it was very busy.

The facilities block has been refurbished internally and now the external needs to done soon as it looks quite shabby.

Would still recommend this site as a stopover to visit Chartres.

 This site is good for a stopover. It is set in woodland and there are good sized spaces. However the downside is the unfriendly welcome and lack of interest in helping the camper. The sanitary facilities were inadequate badly needing an upgrade. The shower block was shared by both men and women and the water was barely warm, similarly with the washing up sinks. Water points that worked were hard to find. Would avoid at busy times if at all possible.

 Excellent site for a stopover in July. Easily findable by satnav from the route through Rouen. Lots of pitches (not soggy at all), partially shaded. Didn't use the facilities, so can't comment. Had difficulty finding a tap (in the washing machine room) & waste bins. ACSI had finished but only paid a Euro more.

 Another update for this year.

We were meeting friends so stayed here as it is very convenient. There had been lots of rain all over France, the pitches were a mess and the mud was smelly. Apparently the warden had had to tow vans off with his tractor. However, he didn't tell us any of this when we checked in, just took our money as usual. We finally chose to stay on one of the roads at the end of a cul-de-sac, in line with a number of other vans. Very few went on the pitches.

I wouldn't have minded, but the ACSI discount had finished and we paid full season price, which I considered quite expensive for a roadside halt. Had the warden told us about the condition of the pitches we might have had second thoughts.

Reviewer: Feelyjordan 17 reviews from this member

 Not the most friendly reception, and my wife speaks good French.

I tried 3 stand pipes before I found one that would supply water. Only one sit down loo in the gents, so gents were using the ladies. To be fair the facilities were kept clean, but in desperate need of updating.

A public path adjacent to the site didn't look to be securely fenced, although we didn't have any bother during our stay.

Early end to ACSI deal so we paid 43 Euros for two nights at the end of June. Very pricey compared to the rates and facilities of other sites that we visited.

Positives - free WIFI at reception.

The town of Chartres is a bit of a jewel, and well worth a visit. We cycled in via a safe route along the river then a steep climb up to the cathedral area. It's a longish but do-able walk.

Pity the site isn't better, but tolerable for a couple of nights adjacent to Chartres.

 Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

Just an update as there have been no reviews so far this year.

We stayed for 1 night on our way home, we meet friends who live locally so this site is very convenient. It is also convenient for the town, via the foot/cycle path along the river.

No change to the sanitary block. Say no more. But not expensive.

 Yeah the old bird on the reception is a grumpy old cow and she speaks only French but is that a problem ?. No it isnt as ifyour visiting then you should at least have respect to try the local lingo as the world doesn't revolve around the uk. The site is tired but cheap so I'm well happy and there's a lovely walk along the river which me and the hounds love. The cathedral in the centre is amazing and there's a lovely bar right outside that serves amazing food and beer. Not the best campsite in the world if your a snob but if your in France and want to feel like your in France then this is the place to stop. On the other hand your in France and want to feel like your on a caravan club site then its probably best you stayed in tbe uk and left us proper campers to have all of the fun !.

 Even though previous reviews on this site are quite varied, we decided to stay here because of it's location, which suggests it is within walking distance of the town and the beautiful Chartres cathedral. We booked in and drove to find a pitch. We noticed that there were several twin axle caravans and also several white vans on the site. These, along with the sheet we had been given about locking away valuables, made us feel a bit uncomfortable about staying on the site, and we decided to leave. To be fair to the man on reception, we were given our money back! We may have judged this site harshly, but did not feel happy to stay there.
