Date of Visit: September 2016 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Greatskua 6 reviews from this member

 This is a simple municipal site with pleasant grassy pitches. All pitches are level. Most pitches have 230volts. The loo/shower block appeared to be pretty good and clean but we didn't use it. The site sits beside the River Vire. We used it purely for a stop over on our way south to Île de Ré. I don't recall s playground. Pont Farcy has a boulangerie and a tabac but I don't think it has any other shops, but it does have a fuel station. However nearby Tessy sur Vire has a good supermarket and other shops and at least one bar. The lady in reception was very helpful (only French spoken).

 We stayed at this site on our outbound & return journey Aug/Sept 12.

All points are covered in the previous review accurately, & there is little I could add.

I would just like to point out that you can arrive up to 2200, or if later there is an area outside of the gate that you are allowed to stay, but it is on hard ground so not suitable for tents. It is ideal if you crossed on the afternoon western ferry to Caen or Cherbourg.

 We overnighted on our outward and return journeys from Calais to Brittany in July and August 2011. The site is located south west of Caen just after the A84. It is literally 5 minutes drive from Junction 39, from which it is signposted, of the A84 thus making it ideal as a night halt. We did not book the site but on the outward journey we phoned ahead whilst travelling to ensure they had room.

The site is set in a beautiful wooded valley and on a bend in the River Vire. I think the location may have previously been a boat quay as there are some remnants of this and the river widens into a basin. The site is fairly narrow and extends along the banks of the river with many of the pitches separated from the river bank only by a low fence. There are approximately 50 open, grass pitches with plenty of shade from mature trees. The site is a little unkempt in appearance with a number of pitches where the grass was in need of cutting - this was particularly so in the half of the site furthest from the entrance and reception, which was predominantly empty.

There was a large, modern sanitary block with separate male and female toilets and laundry and washing-up area. This block, also, had an upstairs games room but this was not open during our stay. The CDP was located in tiny, older sanitary block at the far end of the site but the toilets in this block were boarded up.

There was a new children's playground near the toilet block and a number of single pieces of children's play equipment distributed around the site - although some of these had seen better days. River fishing was available at the campsite and a card could be purchased from Reception. It must be said that the whole site appeared to be in need of a little more loving care but its idyllic location compensated for this.

Another considerable asset was the friendly and helpful lady warden. She spoke some English and was always attentive and keen to please. When we asked what the departure time was she said that we could stay as late as we wished. On our outward journey we stayed until we had eaten our picnic lunch on the riverbank.

On both of our visits we were told to choose our own pitch and chose ones right on the bend in the river so that we were able to point the 'van towards the river and have the views in both directions along the river. The views along the wooded valley were lovely with horses and foals gambolling in the fields on opposite banks of the river.

There was a nearby water point but a slight disadvantage was that the EHU point was on the opposite side of the site access road so we had to run our hook-up cable across the road. On our first visit we needed to use our additional hook-up cable to reach the EHU point.

Although roads bordered the site on 3 sides they were relatively quiet country roads and traffic noise was not obtrusive. Surprisingly, given the site's closeness to the autoroute, there was no road noise whatsoever from the A84.

The small, picturesque village was 5 minutes walk away. It had a baker's, bar and a petrol station with a very well-stocked food shop. The fuel was, however, very expensive - the dearest purchased during our 4 week holidays. Bread could be ordered and collected from reception. Opposite the campsite was a small 'park', unfortunately a little overgrown, where a WW2 Bailey Bridge had been relocated. We visited this by walking through the village and over the flower-decked bridge.

Walking and cycle routes in the Vire Valley were advertised on a large map in the village and the area seemed worthy of further exploration. There was a small town of Tessy-sur-Vire about 5 miles away on the other side of the autoroute.

I can highly recommend this rural campsite both as a night halt and for longer stays to explore the area. I hope that this review will help it to get more visitors as it deserves - that might help to smarten it up a bit. At £9. 95 per night for the pitch with EHU for the 2 of us and Max the collie it was tremendous bargain too.
