This site is like no other I know in France. The majority of campers are British and it is like picking up a very good site in the UK and dropping into a warm climate. We always make this stop over on our way back through Europe. The food is excellent and very British,but after five weeks of good French and Italian meals it is a pleasant change. The toilet facilities are clean and the site is kept to a high standard The town is not wildly exciting but there is plenty to see and do in the area.

We have just left the campsite(the last to leave for the 2013 season!) The campsite is just as lovely as the last time we visited. We received a very warm welcome from the owners Alistair and Jo. Even though it was the very end of what I hear to have been a very busy season, everything was still running to the usual high standard! We are looking forward to returning next year. Many thanks!

The toilet shower/toilet block disgusting. Floors looked like they had never been scrubbed. Dirt around all the basin taps. Old large cobwebs hanging from ceilings. The chemical toilet unit was filthy with flush tap not working.

Staff are very helpful and friendly, and a nice atmosphere at this camp. Our base camp as we store our motorhome here.
Totally recommend it :-)

Very friendly site run by Brits with mainly british campers. Facilities were good and cleaned regularly. Pitch sizes were ok although we did have several patches of mould growing on the pitch were previous residents must have disposed of food debri. Grey water was disposed of around the bushes on the pitch. We had a meal in the restaurant which was good. The village was about 15 minutes walk away, it was not a very lively village but it did have a large supermarket on the outskirts.

Nice local fields for dog walking, good sizes pitches good information leaflet, close to town Airvault, toilet facilities very busy. There is a bar/restaurant on site but while we were there it was serving fish and chips! not quite what we came to France for. English owners could well explain why the site was overwhelmingly English campers. We having a man playing an organ in the bar was a little old fashioned.
