Show more

The campground is located at an elevation of 400 m. The spacious campsites stretch out over a rolling landscape. You have different views everywhere. You can get a spot next to the castle or along the forest, but also on the side of a hill. There are spaces with, without and with some shade.

Castle room

There are mobile homes and tents for hire on site. There are various luxury chalets in the forest. You can also spend the night in a real castle room! On Wednesday and Sunday, for a small fee, you can visit the 15th century castle with a tour. The restaurant with a small menu is located in the courtyard of the castle.

Natural stone swimming pool

The swimming pool next to the castle is completely made of natural stone. There is an outdoor pool and a small heated indoor pool. You can enjoy the jacuzzis and the slide. There is also a sauna. From the campground there is a walking path to the river de Allier where you can swim. You can hire canoes, kayaks and mountain bikes at the reception.

Climbing adventures

There is a playground and a sports field on site. You can play table tennis and use the jeu-de-boules pitch. You can play tennis, go horseback riding, ride ponies and practice archery for a fee. There is an activities programme in Dutch for the kids. For children from about ten and for adults, the via ferrata is a climbing adventure.

Het was enorm slecht weder wat bij ons mischien de somberheid heeft erger gemaakt.
De percelen liggen tussen de bomen en zijn vrij groot het sanitair is oud en geeft een verwaarloosde indruk. De ontvangst op de receptie was vrij vriendelijk.
Het eten in de restaurant is van matige kwaliteit en de glaasjes wijn klein.

De camping is prachtig gelegen, alleen een paar minpunten. het regelement staat vol met wat niet mag. De eigenaren zijn behoorlijk zuinig, men vindt dat 4 minuten douchen volstaat, afwassen in de avond in het donker, omdat het licht niet aan is, van het tweede sanitairblok één van de 5 douches open, cabines allemaal dicht, één toilet open. De eigenaar vindt dat hij niet meer kan doen voor die prijs. De plaatsen zijn wel mooi en groot. .

Bijzondere camping met een prachtige kasteel en mooi aangelegd zwembad. Bijzonder mooi uitzicht.
Je zou zeggen, wat wil een kampeerder nog meer. Helaas in september werden wij (en nog meer Nederlandse kampeerders, verwezen naar een plek achterin de camping waar, zo zei de eigenaar, ook een sanitair gebouwtje was. Dit werd de dag na aankomst gesloten vanwege het feit dat de eigenaar geen zin had in de schoonmaak werkzaamheden en kosten van warm water. Iedereen vertrok voortijdig en was door de houding geïrriteerd. De plaatsen zijn zeer scheef waardoor caravan stellen een probleem is. Het prachtige zwembad (werkelijk een unieke locatie) was glad door alg in het water. Zeer verouderd sanitair. Suggestie om toiletpapier op de toiletten (geen toiletpapier is toch echt uit de tijd voor een dergelijke camping) werd beantwoord met \"daar heb ik dus zin in\". Wat er aan de hand is met de voorheen zo vriendelijke eigenaren is mij een raadsel.

Personeel, twee meisjes achter de receptie die prima hun best hebben gedaan. Verder geen personeel voor reinigen van het sanitair op de overnachting toen wij er waren. Sanitair niet schoon muren douche vuil. Het stonk! Slechte verlichting bij het sanitair tw 1 lampje. Zwembad vies van de bladeren geen toegang. kasteel verpauperd enorm t.o.v 2018. Geen restaurant open ook niet voor af te halen. In de binnenruimte is werkelijk niets open voor kinderen en ouderen. Helaas zullen wij deze camping niet meer bezoeken. Nogmaals ik heb respect tijdens corona maar er hoort personeel te zijn wat relevante zaken schoon moet maken en houden.

Slechtste camping die ik op 10 jaar Acsi campings ben geweest. Lauw water in een ijskoude grote douche ruimte. Wifi buiten gebruik. Binnenzwembad verwaarloosd en sauna en massage niet voorhanden. Buitenzwembad niet om aan te zien. Als je dit dan bij de uitbater meldt, dan is het van, nou nou, alsof je veel van ze verlangt, maar 20 euro betalen vinden ze dan geen probleem. Mij zien ze nooit meer terug.
