Douche drukknop tevens mengkraan. Terrein vlak met zon / schaduw plekken. Ons goed bevallen. Supermarkt in Chateauroux. Enkele wandelroutes in omgeving. 5 Autominuten van rijksweg, die we ’s-nachts niet hoorden en overdag geen hinderlijk geluid.

Aardige receptie, makkelijk bereikbaar en kort maar buiten geluidsafstand snelweg.
Restaurant was gesloten omdat de kok met de noorderzon verdwenen was.

Stopped for one night on way north. Plenty of pitches on open grassland or in woods. Not enough toilet facilites were open and not much hot water for washing up. Pitches were great but facilities let this site down. Close to A20 so Ok for one night when heading north or south.

Staff on arrival were excellent, pitch in woods or on open grassland.
Facilities appear to have been uplifted to a excellent standard. Wifi free and fast in lounge.
As in ACSI book ideal stopover for travelling North/south.

Een echte overnachtingscamping met restaurant.
Vriendelijke ontvangst met uitleg.
Camping bestaat uit twee grote grasvelden en een bomenbos, maar er zijn te weinig stroomaansluitingen dus vroeg komen. Geen broodservice.
Sanitair is vrij nieuw en schoon, maar echt veel te weinig voor de grootte van de camping.
WIFI gratis bij de receptie.
Omgeving is mooi. Automuseum en kasteel binnen een uur rijden.

prima geschikt op doorreis. zelfs 2 dagen gestaan om lekker te ontspannen. grote kampeerplekken. jammer dat anderen dat niet zo zien en het liefst bij je in de dissel parkeren. douche, wc in 1 ruimte maar dat zie je wel meer. wel schoon. restaurant aanwezig maar niet geprobeerd. omgeving weinig te wandelen. zwembad gesloten maar was bekend. een aanrader voor een tussenstop

We use this campsite as a stopover on our way south to Spain and north to UK in off season. It always has plenty of room and has a very pleasant atmosphere. The facilities that are open to us when we are there (3 times) are two showers, two toilets and a sink in the same location for washing dishes - not great!

Overdag een rustige camping, maar \'s avonds erg druk. Niet vreemd voor een passantencamping, maar voor meerdere dagen is deze camping minder geschikt. In het hoogseizoen is er een tweede washok, waardoor er voldoende sanitaire voorzieningen zijn. Echter door de passanten, die het schoon houden van sanitair niet zo belangrijk vinden, is het lastig voor de beheerders om alles netjes te houden. De schoonmaakpomp van het zwembad was defect, als dit weer gemaakt is, is het een goed zwembad. Supermarkt, winkels en een stad (Chateauroux) zijn dichtbij, de snelweg echter ook, wat voor geluidsoverlast kan zorgen.
