Site convenient for Vichy. Pitches can be muddy in wet weather. Staff friendly and helpful. Good walk along river to town

Robert Peacock, on this campsite in September 2014


Travelling party: Seniors

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.

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.

Pitches reasonable size, quiet location. Limited food available and no restaurant within easy reach. Never seen so many Mosquitos as soon as the sun went down and they were still there in the morning!

Great location and easy to find. Very well maintained site with spotless ablutions. Great river side walk to Vichy which is a lovely town to explore. Lovely surroundings and friendly staff. A very pleasant experience.

Probably not seen at its best in the rain and 12 degrees. In walking distance of the city. But I wouldn't be tempted to return, good weather or not.

Setterington, on this campsite in September 2012


Travelling party: Couple

15 min walk into Vichy, either thru fields or on riverbank.
Quiet site at this time of year but all clean and in good order.
Good stopover and Vichy is an interesting spa town with a chequered history.

We stayed for one night on our way south and would have stayed longer if the weather was warmer. We would stay again if in the area
