A very attractive site situated on the edge of a forest. beware the pitches under the edge of the forest, but, in low season plenty of choice. Local village within walking distance, some shops further on up the hill with a medium sized supermarket a short drive away. Friendly staff happy to help.

Das Gelände ist sehr schön,wenn auch etwas holperig.Die Toilettenanlagen sind nicht sehr sauber, da etwas zuwenig geputzt wird und auch rel.kompliziert.In nächster Umgebung kein Rest.

Großer Platz direkt am Loire-Radweg gelegen. Von hier aus kann man mit dem Fahrrad sowohl Amboise (25km) und Blois (19 km) gut erreichen. Der Radweg ist gut ausgebaut und führt z.T. auch an der Touristischen Weinstraße entlang, an der auch einige Cave liegen.
An der Rezeption findet sich zahlreiches Informationsmaterial zu der Umgebung, ebenso kann man ermäßigte Eintrittskarten zu den Schlössern erhalten.
Der überdachte Teil des Schwimmbades ist beheizt. Im kleinen Supermarkt können leckere Baguettes und Croissaints bestellt werden.
Für Kinder gibt es einen Spielplatz mit u.a. einem Trampolin und einer großen Hüpfburg. Die Kinder-Animation ist abwechslungsreich.

Negativ sind die drei sanitären Anlagen aufgefallen. Diese sind zwar nach Geschlechtern getrennt, allerdings finden sich in einem Raum sowohl Duschen als auch Waschbecken und Toiletten, d.h. letztere nicht abgetrennt von den anderen Bereichen. Es findet sich keine Seife und Handtrockner in den Waschhäusern. Diese werden auch nur morgens und nachmittags gereinigt. Die Waschhäuser sind zudem unzureichend beleuchtet.

Mooie familiecamping waar veel Nederlandse gezinnen verblijven. Zwembad, animatie en zelfs een markt met streekproducten. Blois (mooie stad) ligt op zo\'n 15 km via fietsroute bereikbaar.

Nederlands sprekende eigenaar, super vriendelijk. Omgeving voor fietsers zeer de moeite waard. Sanitair is schoon, maar mag zeker wat ruimer van opzet.

Mooie camping. Gastvrije ontvangst. Leuke fiets mogelijkheden naar o.a. Blois. Heerlijk verwarmd zwembad.

Stayed 8 nights in a caravan. Superb site well placed in the Loire valley for visiting chateaus, towns and markets. Good cycling from the site. Staff very helpful nothing seemed to be too much. Great pool although can get busy. Facilities always clean. Ate in the restaurant freshly cooked, good service and good value. Would not hesitate to recommend or return to this site

Very pleasant site with welcoming staff. A good shop on site sells most essential provisions, and takes orders for bread for the next morning. Our pitch was a very good size, although water and waste facilities were a distance away. Would definitely stay again.
