We stayed here twice during the same holiday. The second time there were substantial renovations to the washrooms which may improve their quality but not their number. We suspect that if the site were full the washrooms would be found lacking in capacity. The facilities are warm and there is ample hot water even during sustained cold weather. The pitches are well marked but, owing to steep kerbs it was sometimes difficult to access them, especially with the narrow access roads. The site does suggest caravans should not exceed 7 metres in length. Longer outfits would have a limited choice of pitches. The site is next to a swimming pool complex and a busy suburban road which means that traffic noise is present but not overly intrusive, it is quiet at night. Tournai is quite interesting and Lille, a bustling historic city, is easily accessed by train from the station, both about a half hour\'s walk from the site.
Convenient nice little site within walking distance of the nice pretty town of Tournai. The pitches are a decent size and all hedged off for privacy. The site is well kept and the toilet block is clean and well maintained. There is a swimming pool next door for the kids with a few water slides. Overall a nice quiet site will stay again.
We loved this small campsite, stayed for one week, the facilities are kept very clean- cleaned and supplied with toilet papier and paper towells daily. Each spot has its own light, water and electric and is surrounded by lovely hedges. There is a brilliant swimming pool with 4 water slides next door (which offers a Huge discount to the Campers. Our kids love to swim so we spent hours in the pool. You can also rent waterbikes on the beautiful lake next to the pool and there is a lovely playground next to the pool and lake. Very good value and a lovely place to come.
We have a cycling holiday every March/April, based at this campsite. This is Belgium in early spring, often wet and cold. The warm shower block, and the warm washing up area are both very welcoming facilities when it\'s cold outside.2016 saw the introduction of free wifi, an excellent addition. I have seen the remarks about the management, in our experience having visited 4 times, we have only had kind, helpful contact. If you\'re English try speaking another language, my French is terrible but attempts are appreciated, how often do English campsites speak the language of their continental visitors? We hope to visit this lovely campsite many times in the future.
Nice site with large pitches and high hedges which is let down a little by the lack of toilet paper and soap in the toilets. No wifi and the guy on reception doesn\'t smile a lot and didn\'t seem keen on speaking English. Very cheap for a large tent and car with no electricity. Very handy for the city centre and was nice and quiet at night.
Not enough toilets or showers are provided, must be difficult in high season! Pitches good, need an adaptor for the electric if you only have a normal plug. Lovely walk along the canal into the centre.
(Tourist office best for toilets).
I am sorry to say that this campsite fell down badly in a number of ways. My wife and I booked a camping pitch to stay for up to three nights whilst I worked in nearby Tournai, which is a lovely city. On our first night (Saturday) we were sighted opposite a group of Dutch campers. They spent the evening drinking heavily and were increasingly rowdy and very very noisy, not going to sleep and keeping us awake until nearly 4 am. I am aware it is difficult for site owners to police such matters, but it was obvious by the reaction from my complaints when I returned from work on Sunday, that the owners, did not really care about the comfort of its guests. As I was also disturbed by the lack of cleanliness in the washrooms, the soap and paper towel dispensers were empty, and the urinal bowls and handbasins were dirty, I had no other option than to cancel the rest of our stay and move to another site. There were other failings at this site, but I think I have made my main complaints clear.
