Rustige camping, prima voor een paar dagen. Vichy op loopafstand (2km), mooi park met strandje aan de rivier op ca 1 km. Op de camping nette ruime plaatsen met overal gratis WiFi. Plaatsen zijn deels afgebakend en er is voldoende zon en schaduw. Sanitair verouderd en ondanks dat het niet druk was matig schoon. Alleen gewone wc\'s zonder bril. Klein, niet erg aantrekkelijk zwembad: ijzeren hek met daarachter een kale betonplaat met een bak water in het midden. Brood komt uit een automaat die door een bakker wordt beheerd. Smorgens om 8 uur was er geen brood. Bakker is overigens dichtbij en daar is de keus natuurlijk een stuk groter. Tussen 18 en 20 uur zijn er een paar snacks (tosti, pizza, friet) te krijgen bij de receptie. Receptie is vriendelijk en geven desgevraagd genoeg informatie.

Haben diesen Platz nur als Übernachtungsplatz gewählt. Schöne Stellplätze teils sonnig/schattig. Sanitär sauber alles gepflegt. Rezeption nur stundenweise besetzt. Ruhig in Stadtnähe. Würden wiederkommen.

Etant en cure à Vichy au mois de septembre 2014, j\'ai apprécié les qualités de ce camping et la disponibilité des propriétaires. Séjour très agréable de 2 semaines à proximité du centre de cure et quelle économie avec la carte ACSI!

A pleasant enough site with some pitches better than others so if possible have a good look round before settling. Staff were helpful with a little English being spoken. The site has free wi/fi but you will need help from staff to set it up. Good facilities which were cleaned every day - plenty of hot water for showers and dishwashing. Site sits just back of the river but we had no bother from mosquitos. There are lovely walks from the site along the river into the city which has an interesting history but we found expensive although the spa water is very drinkable and free, the locals carry it away by the gallon. This is a city site and once you have visited the city there\'s not much to stay for. Never the less this is a pleasant site and if I was in the area I would use it again.

Goede rustige camping voor een niet al te lang verblijf. Mooie locatie om Vichy te ontdekken, te voet of nog beter per fiets. Verouderd sanitair maar netjes onderhouden.

Very unfriendly staff. No map or info given on arrival. We do not speak much French. Next day when trying to find more info re area the older gentleman said to us in a dreadful loud voice. SPEAK FRENCH. We were very upset. My husband did try to speak french. I got the impression that they do not like English people Would never go back to this site.
Most French sites are very friendly.

Reaction from the campsite September 6, 2014

Thank you for your comment, I am very surprised by your reaction. Are you sure to not be deceived camping because I\'m not old (50 years) I have no recollection of having been rude to you, if it is really the case I apologize. It is true that with humor, I always try to speak French to our customers and this is generally well accepted.friendly. Nicolas.

Der Platz hat eine angenehme Größe und durch die lockere Unterteilung der einzelnen Stellflächen mittels Sträucher sehr angenehm. Leider war das Schwimmbad nicht geöffnet (Vorsaison), wobei das Wetter zu schwimmen eingeladen hätte. Leider gab es keine Möglichkeit sich den Stellplatz (wetterbedingt) selbst auszusuchen, so war unser Stellenplatz, von Mittag bis Abend, in der prallen Sonne. Ein schöner Übernachtungsplatz bei der Durchreise oder Aufenthalt bis zu 3 Tagen.

Ich war Mitte Mai auf dem Weg nach Spanien auf diesem Platz. Das Schwimmbad war noch nicht in Betrieb.
Mein Eindruck war aber ein guter. Die Sanitäranlagen sehr sauber und an der Rezeption war man mir sehr behilflich.
Brot mußte ich am Vortag bestellen, ist aber in Ordnung für die Vorsaison
