Travelling party: Couple

A disappointing experience. Pool wasn\'t open although it was advertised to be open. Restaurant menu more like an American Diner than a French restaurant. Toilets very basic. Pitches sloping. Positives were reasonable washing facilities and motorhome service point. Near to motorway. Possible one night stop but I\'m sure there is better nearby.

Travelling party: Seniors

Stayed here 5 nights at the start od Sept. The site is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the town of Chatel Guyon. The facilities as befitting a 4 star site are good and kept spotlessly clean. Good English spoken by the young and friendly staff This is a large site with static chalets but plenty of room for tourers. Site was in 2 parts one part under trees with complete shade the other more open. My one complaint with this site was the pitches which were small and difficult to manoeuvre into.
Overall a pleasant site, best probably in the low season

Travelling party: Couple

The site was easy enough to find and we liked the town of Chatel-Guyon. The pitch we were given was fairly compact and with a quite large tree beside it it was a little gloomy. The facilities were adequate and we would use it again though I doubt we would stay long on this site.

Travelling party: Couple

Used as a stopover site. Sloping pitches not mentioned in acsi, we were on chocks to the top and still sloping. The receptionist was incredibly rude to us. The washing up sinks had Luke warm water at best. Showers were ok, toilets outside and old. Pitches were a good size and water close to pitch. Close to motorway to use as a stopover. Wouldn\'t recommend.
