 Very pleasant site on an island next to an attractive park, 5 mins walk from the town centre.

Decent sized pitches divided by low hedges with a central, fairly modern, toilet block. Separate rooms for showers and loos (the shower rooms are locked at night) with washing up/ clothes washing facilities at the back of the block. Good free WiFi and cheap - 11. 10 for a tent, motorbike and 2 people.

For kids entertainment there is a jungle gym in the park with tree top platforms and a zip wire, and you can hire mini electric cars - both looked great fun!

 Well, we did indeed return this year and found the campsite, the town and the tourist office with its free wifi and chilled water fountain just as good as last year! My comments about the site from last year therefore still stand.

The majority of visitors still seem to be overnighters of different nationalities, at this time of year mostly French motorhomers, but it's a shame that more people don't stay a little longer to explore the area.

There are a few 'long-stayers' however, and we recognised and chatted again to an older French couple from Dunkerque who spend 2 months on the site each summer as it is nearer to their family and they can visit their grandchildren during the summer holidays.

Although there are no major attractions in the immediate vicinity (though several within 15 - 40 miles) it is just a lovely little bit of 'real' France.

The campsite is also a bargain at still only 14 per night high season and a little bit less in low season.

 Lovely setting as detailed below, with sufficient trees to provide partial (much needed) shade on most of the 59 pitches whilst still maintaining a pleasantly open aspect. The approach through the town was fine, the only remaining Priority from the Right being as you enter the town on the D46 from Moulins.

To enter the site you have to park at a barrier, then check in at the Reception (which also doubles as the park Snack bar and rents out go karts and mini golf equipment) a minute or so's walk away, before getting the barrier code to let you in and out. We were allocated a pitch but were told we could choose our own if we wanted (which we did).

English is spoken by the man at reception, though French is preferred, and he was helpful advising on the area and best way to get to places. Bread can be ordered for the next morning (delicious). The pitches are all large and some positively huge, and divided by lowish hedges, with plentiful 10 amp electric hook ups and several water points throughout the park.

During the last week of August and into September when we were there, there were many overnighters but the site was quiet and peaceful at all times. The site is well kept and the attractive looking toilet and shower block clean and nicely tiled, with fully adjustable domestic style showers, and surrounded by flowers.

There are washing and washing up sinks along the outer edges of this building, under cover, and also a washing machine. There is no wifi on site but it is available free of charge at the Tourist Office just a short walk along the road/river.

We found St Pourcain a pleasant little town with a very informative Tourist Office and plentiful cafes and restaurants, within very easy walking distance. The Carrefour Marche supermarket looks to have been recently extended and has a self-service fuel station and there is a new looking Lidl on the other side of the same road.

Leaving the town the other way there is a Colruyt supermarket, also with fuel, and a MacDonald's, and also 2 Total filling stations. We enjoyed the drive to Vichy and also to the Puy de Dome (amazing views) via Volvic, though for speed returned from there on the motorway (5 euros well spent!). We did not visit Vulcania, though it looks like a good day out (sounds to be similar to Futuroscope on a smaller scale and based round volcanoes).

This site suited us perfectly - we came for 2 nights and stayed for 8 - and we loved the area. We will definitely be returning for longer to explore the area further and to enjoy this site - oh, and it was amazing value at 14 euros a night for 2 adults, car and caravan, including electricity.

 I'd agree with the above review - and also would mention that the price is very reasonable, at just 10 euros for car and caravan, two people, and electricity when we visited in September 2010.

The sanitary blocks are segregated into Male and Female areas (not common on a lot of municipal sites) - and are interesting in a very French 1960's sort of way. However, the shower fittings look to have been replaced recently and delivered a very efficient shower which could be regulated to any temperature just like at home! The block was immaculately clean when we visited.

There is a medium sized Carrefour supermarket nearby on the Montlucon road, about 5 mins from the campsite, with cheapish fuel. A range of several types of bread can be ordered from reception, to pick up from 8.00 am the following morning onwards (and the Baguette Traditionelle was amongst the best we've ever had).

Access can be a little tricky - as the town still operates 'Priorite A Droite' - and there are several unfathomable junctions, but the site is very convenient for north/south journeys heading towards the A75 free autoroute. All in all highly recommended.

 An excellent little camp-site on an island between arms of the River Sioule within a park with many leisure facilities. The campsite is enclosed in a strong metal fence and the park around is closed to vehicles at night. The toilets and washing facilities are adequate and clean. There are no other facilities on site but it is only a 5-15 minutes walk to the town centre for all your needs!

One day there was a wine and cake sampling - free!

Pitches are quite large and well defined by hedges &c. There is a large area without electricity which effectively is the tenters - many one-nighters use this.

The town has a large number of restaurants and bars for all tastes and pockets. There are some reasonable walks in the area (as at one of the two Tourist Offices which open on different days). The countryside around is mainly flat with a few light hills. The town itself has interest for half a day or so . A reasonable distance from Vichy which should not be missed and possibly for Moulin but rather a tedious drive to Riom, Volvic and Clermont. The railway station is closed.

The superintendent has an office nearby in the park but is there for very limited hours (and her English is not great) but very helpful. [She travels around on a sit-up bicycle - if anyone taught their youngsters French using 'Muzzy' she would remind them of Albert . ]
