With this site, you can't get better for an overnight stop in transit up or down the A6. It's just minutes from the junction and very easily accessible on the outskirts of town. When we arrived the site had been severely flooded and the River Saone had claimed a lot of the pitches so we were very glad that we had booked. We had a good spacious pitch on a hard standing with a grassy area to the side. When not in flood, most of the pitches are grass and quite flat. The manager of the site was very friendly and was not phased by the constant stream of people trying to get space at the site. By early evening, he had managed to maneoveur people into all available areas even allowing some to pitch adjacent to the restaurant terrace to make sure that they had somehwere to stay. Very impressive. The site itself is well maintained, with basic and clean toilet facilities and a small restaurant bar serving pizzas and sausage and frites. You can buy local wine at reasonable prices in there too. The Carrefour supermarket with cheap petrol is about 5-10 minutes drive from the site and we also passed a Lidl next to a McDonalds on the way from the motorway junction. In summary Camping De Tournus has everything you need very close to hand with friendly efficient service. Although its not the prettiest site we have used, we would also consider using it for more than one night to explore the area too.

An update on my review of 3 years ago.

The site is much the same, also very popular, it fills up quickly every afternoon.

About half of the pitches are hard standing, separated by grassy areas.

The sanitary block nearest the entrance is better equipped and has more hot water than the other, but they are both very clean.

The site gives ACSI discount.

Reviewers - mature couple with campervan and bikes.

We came to the town because there is a cycle museum here, and decided to stay at the campsite too.

I can't add a great deal to the other reviews, it is a pleasant site with flat grassy pitches and some shady trees.

We were made very welcome by the Warden, who is on duty from early until late. He gave us a map of the town and highlighted the places of interest.

There is a snack bar where they cook pizzas, chips etc, very good and not expensive.

Two toilet blocks, kept nice and clean. Washing up outside under cover with plenty of hot water.

Not a cheap site, for the facilities available.

This is a lovely site and ideal as a stop over or for a short stay. It is close to junction 27 of the A6.

We had booked for one night as we were using the site as a stop over on the way further south. It was wise to book as it is very popular and there was a long queue of campers who were waiting to see if there was any space. It is important you let the site know if you are going to arrive after 6pm because this is when they release 'booked' pitches that haven't been taken. We only noticed this when we got to the site as we arrived at 5:45 with minutes to spare! If there is a queue when you get there you should be able to drive to the front if you have booked.

Once we had got to the front of the queue the receptionist was very efficient and helpful. The reception area has a bar which also serves meals. Wifi is available in the bar area. There are two shower blocks on the site and these were kept very clean. The pitches are a good size and all are level. We found the site to be quiet. I consider myself a light sleeper and was not disturbed by the train noise which I would describe as a light rumble from goods trains rather than the sudden woosh of a high speed train.

We walked into Tournus from the site which is just over 1km away. There was not much open on the Sunday night but we did find a restaurant that served good food.

There is a Carefour market a short distance from the site which also has a fuel station, ideal for filling up before getting back on the A6 autoroute or before exploring the area.

This site is a very popular overnighter for those heading south, particularly with the Dutch, as it offers easy access from the A6. The result is that early in the morning the site empties, we were there in mid July and there was plenty of room.

It is a very pleasant open site with a mix of grass and hardstandings, with shade if you require it.

It is only a 200metre walk from the Saone but though you can not see the river from the site, you do see some of the bigger river traffic, which is a bit bizarre. It is a very pleasant river walk to the town, which is delightful and the Abbey is impressive.

The town has everything that you want, including a very adequate supermarket. I thought it was a shame that many overnighters, in their rush to the south, did not venture from the campsite to explore the town, they do not know what they are missing.

You can cycle northwards along the river, towards Chalon, though a lot of this is grasstrack. Southwards you can cycle towards Macon on a designated voie verte which is in the process of being upgraded. There are a number of designated walks from the town.

The campsite is very relaxed, pay for one night and stay as long as you like, we stayed for 3 nights. Reception was superb. The sanitary facilities were fine, one newer block and there are plans to put more showers in and heat the block, together with a sauna & jacuzzi.

There is a bar area with TV & free Wi Fi available. There is a dedicated motorhome service point. There is a swimming pool next door. As the previous review, you do pick up some train noise.

We used this site on our way home this year.The site is easy to find from autoroute and is signposted before you reach main town, access is easy for any unit. The french receptionist spoke very good english and although the facilities are basic they were very clean.The site is well laid out and overlooks the river,approx 200yds.

There is a nice walk along the river bank into Tournus, approx 15 minutes.

The town although not large has enough cafes bars and shops etc for any of your needs.

The only down side is distant train noise if you are a very light sleeper.
