Would agree with previous reviews, a well placed site that very clean and tidy with excellent staff.

Very easy to access from the ring-road - one road all the way in with a few roundabouts. We did miss the entrance as someone had parked a van in front of the sign but straight past to a roundabout and back to site no problems.

On the rubbish bin front you are given two sacks on arrival - one for recycling and one for not. These are collected at the end of the stay, most people hung them in bushes around the pitches.

We did find it quite noisy whilst we were there, the noise came from people walking along the river-path next to the site (other site of river and behind a fence) two nights running there was shout and screaming late into the night.

We purchased our tram ticket from reception 9 for 24 hours unlimited use for up to 4 people. There is plenty to see in the city, the Chateau Du Ducs is free to enter and beautiful. Tower Bretagne seemed to us to be a very tall office block - you can go to the top but only after 3pm.

We love the Ile de Machines - something a little different and well worth seeing. The Grand Elephant is incredible.

Overall, it's a perfect city site, well kept and secure. We would use again to visit the city.

Well, only reinforcing previous reviews, was reasonably quiet when we were there, tourers mixed with cabins, very pleasant and helpful staff, tram over road to town, bar prices not out of order, bread picked up from bar in morning, only thing was no refuse bins actually on the site, it all had to be carried out to the beat waste at the entrance.

Showers clean, loo paper, never busy, though time visited may have helped.

Go again ?

Unfortunately our experience here was tainted by our pitch not having any water despite paying 2euros for the adapter at reception when we first arrived having read previous reviews. The tap and drain were there but problems with the water system that half the staff in reception didn't know about-it's taught us to check the wAter connection in future before we set up and level the van! Unsympathetic at reception-couldn't understand why we were so cross as there was water available 100 yds away. Other than that we had a great time.

Dinner cruise on the bateau nantaise excellent despite only understanding a tenth of the commentary !

Tram system works beautifully-no need to drive anywhere-we did a supermarket shop at the biggest leclerc ive ever see at grand val-tram terminus right outside.

I agree machines de lisle a bit overrated- more about future development of their new project. The elephant is certainly impressive but didn't get to ride on it unfortunately.

Very easily accessible from the peripherique but constant traffic noise could upset some. Excellent security with multiples codes used at the barrier. Restaurant/ bar hours very odd but it was the end of the main season.

San facs always clean-staff constantly around the site.

Agree with all prior comments. Lovely site in a canyon - well shaded - poor satellite reception. Reception closed 12. 30 to 15. 00. Normal price 35 Euros pn - ACSI rate 18 - both with electricity. Free wifi. Trip into town is easy on the tram. Reception staff are very helpful. At this time of year restaurant only provided take away pizzas - but they were very tasty! Town is interesting with river trips available in season. The Japanese garden on the Isle de Versailles was worth a quick visit and the views from the Tour Brittanique (entry 1 Euro) were good. We thought the Isle de Machines was a bit over rated but teh elephant made the trip worthwhile.

As we were visiting Nantes we stayed here after leaving another site (La Pindiere) early as we were not happy with it. Petit port was much better. The site was in a great location, a tram stop was just outside the entrance for trips into the city. Even cycling into town was ok, taking about 15 mins and mostly on cycle paths. It took longer on the way back being a bit uphill (NB we are in our fifties and NOT very fit!). The site is off a fairly main road but there is very little noise and you do not feel as if you are in the city. A small river runs alongside.

The whole site was very well maintained, good security, the staff helpful. A busy but fairly pricey restaurant on site serves good food. Very nearby there are lots of supermarkets, shops and cafes including burger bars. Although there is no pool there is free access to the municipal indoor pool literally just over the road. Our grassy pitch was a bit muddy after recent rain so we put some cardboard down. We arrived on spec so if booking ahead maybe best to get a hardstanding pitch. Some pitches have mains water for which you can get an adapter at the office. Toilet blocks were great with 24 hour access, very large cubicled unisex showers, proper toilets with paper, soap for handwashing and even a free wall mounted hairdryer. Nantes has a lot to offer. We got a lot of help from the tourist office and enjoyed following the green line on the pavement which takes you to hundreds of interesting artworks. Cycling round the city was very easy. Do not miss a ride on the mechanical elephant at Les Machines de L'iles!

Excellent site with great access to the city. The site is very park like and it is hard to believe that you are in a city.

Reception was very friendly and efficient with loads of local information.

Pitches were a good size with electric and water. The water needed a special connection which we were able to borrow from reception.

The washrooms/showers cubicles were huge with a shower and washbasin in the same cubicle with lashings of hot water. Washing up, laundry and chemical toilet emptying all in the same block. We had no problem with queues etc for the facilities.

The restaurant had very limited opening hours (restaurant was only open on a couple of nights a week) but take away pizzas were available every night. However it's very easy to get a tram into the city where there was a vast choice of places to eat or drink.

There is a tram stop across the road to get a tram into the city. We asked about getting tickets at reception but were told that as we only wanted to travel on the tram and not a 'freedom pass' for the boats and attractions a 24 hour ticket was available at the machine at the tram stop for 5 euros so we used this.

No on site pool but there is an indoor swimming pool complex across the road.

The city was fabulous and the Isle de Machines a 'must visit'.

There is a motorhome aire on site for those not wanting full facilities.

We heartily recommend this site for anyone wanting to visit the city and will definitely return again.
