 We stayed for one night while travelling south, without making a booking.

The lady on reception was very efficient and helpful.

Facilities were always clean and tidy.

We would visit this site again maybe for longer to explore the area more.

 Lovely appointed site with outstanding facilities. The toilets and showers are mixed which didn’t bother us but worthy of note.

There’s a shop on site which has the usually bread and pastries every morning. There’s also a bar / cafe on site and a pizza van every night.

Site is used mainly as a ‘transit’ campsite for many travelling south which is a shame because the area deserves a longer stay.

We didn’t book ahead, but both nights the site was full.

The hosts are friendly, very helpful and speak excellent English.

We cycled into Orleans along dedicated cycle paths and then along the Loire.

I would stay again if I was in the area and I would book ahead.

 Very difficult to add to previous comments. The site is 277 miles from Calais, taking us a bit under seven hours to drive, including a lunch stop.

We used it as a stop en route to the Med coast. Our route was down to Rouen, then A13 and N154 past Chartres and Dreux, before dropping onto the A10 and A71. It's pretty straightforward, with a bit of time lost on the N roads but much more pleasant than autoroute.

Easy access to the site off the A71, but make sure you turn left into D15 from D2271, else your sat nav will take you through the houses. The D15 skirts the town, then to the D14.

Good job we booked, site was full on our arrival at 5. 45pm.

Exceptionally friendly staff; top notch.

Nice (very little) bar on site. The pizza van was already cooking up when we arrived; 8 euros per pizza was quite acceptable.

Free WiFi kept our teenage daughter happy, while we sat in the sun on our pitch; surrounded by high hedges you can either have a bit of privacy or not, whichever you prefer.

Standard 3 pin electric hook up available, with water and electric on a facilities post on the neighbouring pitch.

Loo block is 'mixed' but very clean and warm. Be warned though; no seats on the loos and you need to take your own toilet paper!

We used this site as an overnight stop and would certainly return, maybe for a longer stay next time. Thoroughly recommended.

 This site is branding itself as Camping D’Olivet now, it’s still the same site.

We’d tried to book onto this site earlier in the week but there were no vacancies but had success for later dates, on arrival we found that I’d booked for the following week, fortunately the friendly and helpful staff were able to reorganise things to accommodate us. The staff speak English (amongst other languages).

The pitches are on grass but are of a good size, most are partially shaded or in full shade. Electric distribution point may be on a different pitch to you so you may need an extra lead, if you are on a pitch with a distribution point it also has water. There are other water points around the site, there is also a motorhome service point.

There is a small kids play area in front of the sanitary block and an outdoor games area behind. Reception also has a bar and there’s a terrace where you can enjoy your drink. Bread and viennoiserie can be ordered from reception where you can also buy tram tickets.

Another nice touch are the pots of herbs which seem to be available to campers to use for cooking although if you don’t want to cook, the pizza van visited a couple of times whilst we were there, the pizzas were very tasty too. The sanitary block is unisex and was very clean, there are also washing up and clothes washing facilities. We also used the free WiFi.

The campsite is a 10-15 minute walk from the tram stop, from there it takes just over 20 minutes to get into Orléans. We got off in the centre of the city and it was a short walk to the main square which is dominated by a statue of Jean D’Arc.

From this square it is also a short walk to the magnificent cathedral which is well worth a visit. As expected there are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants where you can obtain refreshment and nourishment.

Olivet itself has a small market in the main square on Friday afternoon, Olivet was easily reached by cycle in about 10 minutes. There are also the usual shops in the town however, if you want more provisions there is a Leclerc supermarket between the A71 autoroute and the site. Also nearby is the Parc Floral de la Source although we didn’t take the opportunity to visit.

We liked the site and were pleased with the site’s facilities and impressed by the attitude of the staff, our only disappointment was that we didn’t spot any beavers which are reputed to inhabit the river that passes through the site (an offshoot of the River Loiret).

The site was very popular and rightly so, we would recommend booking. If we were in the area again we’d definitely use this site again.

 Used as an overnight stop. Excellent municipal site on the outskirts of Orleans.

Wooded site either side of a small river. Toilet block looks to be recently built and is kept clean, best we have Seen on a Municipal site.

Very popular site, particularly for one night stops, as it is not far from the A71. Pizza Van visits daily.

Free Wifi accessible on most pitches.

Site was full and would recommend booking, which can be done on the web.

 We decided to stay here again as we wanted to cycle into Orleans.

There had been lots of heavy rain all over France, but most of the pitches were ok. The friendly receptionist allocated us a pitch for 2 nights, though there was a sign on the gate saying they were full, this is a very popular site.

The cycle into Orleans took us 35 mins, it's a lovely city to visit, and the cycle route is mostly off road.

There was a group of young people turned up on bikes and camped in the field behind the sanitary block. They tended to dominate the sanitaires for a while, and cooked themselves a meal on the front area, however they didn't make too much noise late on, and left in the morning.

I'm not a huge fan of unisex facilities, so tend to avoid sites with them, though everything here is kept very clean.

 Stayed at this site for one night on a stop over going home. When I arrived I discovered that I had booked for the previous night and the site had a notice to say it was full.

Expected to have to go and find a new site but they managed to fit me in and I didn't lose my deposit.

The site is very good. Facilities are very clean and the staff are very friendly. I enjoyed the site so much that I intend to stay for more than one night next year.

 Used this site for 2 nights on the way down to the Dordogne. What a little gem, beautiful setting on the river. We had a full service pitch, the pitch was a little uneven but we've had worse. The reception staff were lovely, very helpful and spoke good English. The facilities were spotless, and as usual unisex. We cycled into Orleans on the cycle path, we got got a map from reception and she drew the route for us, it took about 30 minutes. It it is well worth a visit if only to see the magnificent cathedral and the statue of Joan of Arc. As usual you can order bread, croissants etc from reception for the next day and there is a small shop with limited selection. Can't comment on kids facilities as we didn't have any with us but there didn't look to be much for kids to do. We never went into Olivet, so can't comment on it, but we would definitely stay here again for a bit longer to explore a bit more. Would definitely recommend.

 The facilities are immaculate and the whole site beautifully maintained.

The pitches vary in size but there are none terribly small.

If you have time and are not using Olivet for a quick overnight, the town is a normal untouristy place. You can walk there (35 minutes for 2 doddery wrinklies) in 15 minutes or get the no 13 bus from the top of the entrance road.

The cycling is a dream, miles of flat, well tarmaced, dedicated routes. You can get into the centre of Orleans in 20-30 minutes. Ask in reception for 'l'AgglO a velo'

There is a LeClerc hypermarket about 2 km in one direction and an Auchan, a similar distance in the opposite way. The Auchan is easier to get to.

The site-wide, free wifi is a good fast service, and there is 16 amp electricity

The site is small and very popular, so as you approach school holidays, French or English, you will need to book.

 Just spent 2 nights here, heading home, sadly, from south of France. Really lovely site, fabulous staff, excellent modern loos etc. Cycled in to Orleans, 20 mins on cycle tracks. Joined the Loire cycle way and have enjoyed a stress free cycling day. Honestly, this is a great site for either an overnight or for visiting the Loire region for a holiday. Very pleasantly surprised as I had thought municipal sites would be more basic. Btw, free wifi too!
