 Loved this site. We were given a pitch at the far end of the site, where the pitches were much bigger than those nearer reception.

Clean and modern washblock. Easy walk across the bridge to town. Very picturesque.

 This is a lovely well kept municipal site. After a warm welcome we were given a huge pitch which overlooked the town. The river Loir runs between the camp site & the town & there is a gate that leads from the camp site into the town which is very handy. It is only a short distance to walk into the town. There is a large market held on a Wednesday.

The toilet & shower facilities were very clean, modern & well kept with toilet paper in each cubicle. There was also soap, hand dryers & hair dryers. There is a pool, & the usual play equipment for children.

You can buy fresh bread each morning & a different food van eg fouee, pizza, burgers & frites, comes in the evening if you don’t want to cook.

La Fleche zoo is not far away & well worth a visit, we were lucky enough to see the grizzly bears, Arctic wolf, white lion & polar bear amongst many other animals kept in a lovely environment.

All in all this is a very well run camp site with very friendly staff & very well priced, less than 18 euros a night with 10 amp electricity, including tourist tax. We would be very happy to return.

 This is a superbly run friendly site.

We had a huge pitch with a great view over the river towards the town which is a few minutes walk away.

Reception were welcoming and English speaking.

 Recent visit one very hot day in mid July. No pre-booking made.

We arrived on spec' knowing it was a large site of about 185 places.

Thankfully this proved to be not a problem and the lovely staff offered us our choice of pitch and explained all the facilities and directions to the town.

The pool was great for a cooling dunk but way to hectic at this time of year for relaxing or swimming as children were not supervised or restrained in any way by staff nor parents!

There's tennis courts and pin-pong and three amenity blocks with showers and laundry facilities of a decent standard.

They also had a free solar charging point for mobile phones and a very good pitch-specific Wifi system which was also FREE.

A bakery visited each morning with their fresh bread and pastries and there was a free to use freezer and TV room.

Amazing value for such quality facilities and very centrally located.

A very short walk over the river bridge to the pretty town for a good selection of bars and bistros.

 Rather annoyed that hitherto we had by-passed this site.

Every thing the previous reviewers have stated is spot on.

There is now free wifi and the signal and speed were perfectly adequate.

Because of the park like layout of the site, shade can be at a premium.

A tip: The sanitaires are clean and well maintained but the central block can get a bit crowded. There is a new block, tucked away in the corner by the gate into town and hidden by large luxuriant flower beds. It is much better.

We definitely will use again. Those facilities at such low prices make it impossible to ignore

 We had spotted this site from across the river last year and assumed that it must be expensive due to it's location and space. - how wrong we were.

We used it as a stop-over going to and returning from Royan area but plan to stay for longer in the future. I cant remember the exact price but it was some way south of €20 including hook-up in August. Our pitches were large and bordered by hedges with a water point nearby.

The toilets were modern and spotless and the small pool area was lovely too.

La Flèche seems a lovely town and there is a Carrefour Express a 5 minute walk from the campsite or a larger L'Eclerc hypermarket a mile or so away by bike or car.

Opposite L'Eclerc you will find a country park with man made swimming lake and beach. Lots of cycling and cycle paths in the area.

The site had a mix of overnighters, longer holiday makers, rentals and a few seasonal pitches.

We would highly recommend this site for either a stop over or longer stay.

 We originally pulled in here for a single night and stayed for 5. The site is in a large park with the usual municipal facilities and has very friendly and helpful reception staff, with some English spoken, although we prefer to try to get by in our rudimentary French. The only down side was that the campsite didn't provide bread (although they may do in the high season), but a boulangerie is close by. There are several wash blocks, all very clean and smart with loo seats and paper. We were allocated an area near the perimeter fence adjoining a lane leading to a small backwater of the main river. A few vehicles up and down, but no real intrusion. A gate in the fence means a short and easy walk over the river to the small town. We found some excellent dog walking along river paths. Some pitches on the site overlook the river and have a pretty view of the town. WiFi is available, but doesn't extend very far beyond reception. Our stay (ACSI) with 2 dogs came to 15. 10 euros a night.

 We came here after a disappointment at a previous site. We arrived during the lunch period so simply parked beside the entrance and settled down for our own lunch. As soon as the office opened we went in to a friendly greeting. After previous problems we said we were not sure how long we would stay but could be about a week. This was no problem, simply pay day prior to leaving. We were allocated a pitch in the only area being used during this quiet period, obviously so that only one facility block would be used.

We fell in love with this site almost immediately. As previous reviewers have said, it is opposite the town, but we did not notice any disturbance from traffic noise. Pitches a reasonable size. Yes, the push button taps were a problem so I took to using a watering can to fill our aquaroll. That was just a minor inconvenience. At least the tap was on the corner of our pitch.

An easy walk into town. Had to go to shop each morning to buy bread, but that was just out of site using gate by amenity block, over the bridge and out to the road and turn right. Then a short walk to a small parade of shops with a superb boulangerie. About ten minutes each way, quicker if you cycle.

For supermarkets, we preferred the Leclerc to the east of the town on the D323, only a few minutes drive. In fact, one day we walked there, taking a route along the river and lake side.

Market day is Wednesday and worth a visit as it is not a tourist market, well not yet. Found a stall where you could select your own vegetables and pay at the end. Also bought fish for the evening meal.

Plenty of excellent cycle routes from the town, some starting from the old railway station. One trip to Bauge en Anjou was well worthwhile as it is a lovely old town. Much of the cycling is on old railway tracks so easy going.

As previously stated, we loved it here. OK, there is a security issue, but do not be surprised if you see a couple of local police walking around the campsite with a ladder, they are just checking the security cameras. Any campsite has a security issue, just bear in mind and make sure everything of value is out of site.

We would not hesitate to recommend this site and we will hopefully return another year. If it were not for this security issue, we would have rated it higher, but do not let that put you off a visit here.

The wifi was free but I noted although I was receiving email, I was unable to send. Strange.

 This is a deceptively large, spacious municipal site, well signposted from the main roads and with easy access. It has good sized, grass pitches divided by hedges, with 10 amp electric hook ups and a tap between every 2 pitches (push button and very slow to fill an aqua roll - can't get round it by holding it pushed in all the time either as this stops the water flow!). The pitches were very dry and hard and the grass a little sparse in places, even in April, but give me that over mud anytime! Modern and very clean shower and toilet block (the one we used nearest the entrance was anyway, there are other blocks on site but we didn't investigate those), showers again push button but lasted a fair while and had adjustable temperature controls. There is a play area for children, boules pitches and an outdoor pool (not open in April!). There is no free wifi on site but the tourist office (on the main road about a mile away) provides this and a very pleasant area inside the office to sit and use it.

The site is well situated just across the river from the town centre, with a shortcut for pedestrians and cyclists from the site, and about 2 miles from a large commercial centre with Leclerc, Aldi and Lidl supermarkets and other big non-food shops (with good cycle paths alongside the main road to get there). There is a leisure lake with a beach and a path all the way round it just across from here, and the path links to one of the off road cycle paths, which you can follow back to the town. There are several walking and cycle routes in and around La Fleche and the tourist office ladies are very helpful in providing details, maps and leaflets. There is also a zoo just outside the town.

This is well used as a stopover site but is also a pleasant base base for a longer stay to visit the attractions of the area.

 A great site. Reception is excellent. English spoken and very helpful. Pitches are large and flat, well defined with hedges for privacy. Great swimming pool. There is a good play area for the kids, if you have any! and a tennis court. Just a short walk into the local town and a short drive to supermarkets le clerc and Aldi. Toilet block emasculate and good laundry facility. A great stop on your way from or to the ferry at Caen or for longer. Will definitely use this site again. Highly recommended.
