"Beautiful castle camp site with very spacious and grass green flat pitches. The sanitation is excellent. There is a small lovely lake with canoeing opportunity and suitable for the beginning surfer. Furthermore, there is an nice swimming-pool with water slide. Lot of excursion possibilities in "La Creuse"."

We intended to stay for ten nights but left after four. The site was very quiet being less than 5% full. Staff very efficient and friendly.The ACSI guide is very misleading in that the majority of pitches are not level and most pitches are subject to a supplementary charge for additional electricity amperage.
The surrounding area is very rural and there is little to see without driving fairly long distances. First and last visit for us.

We are most surprised at the negative comments here as we found everything on this site absolutely faultless. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, were impressively multilingual and nothing was too much trouble. The sanitary facilities were immaculate and in excellent condition, cleaned at least 3 times a day and continuous hot water too for washing up etc. Our pitch was large, a bit sloping, but with a lovely view of the lake. The site is big with wonderful woodland walks and lots of dog walking and swimming in the lake opportunities. We took out a canoe which was great fun. One day we walked into town which took about 45 mins along the off-road marked route. The bar is open most evenings, as is the excellent restaurant. Yes, it is in a quiet region of France but if you want a campsite in beautiful, peaceful and relaxing surroundings then this is highly recommended. And within a short drive from the site there is lots to see and do if you want to get out and about.

Having read some of the negative comments here I think they must be referring to the wrong site. The staff were polite, helpful at all times. The toilet/shower block was A1+ and always clean. The pitches are large and well kept. All in all this is a fantastic site for just chilling out and taking in the lovely surroundings with the added bonus of a swimming pool etc. We took advantage of the takeaway which was also first class. We will be returning to this little oasis.

We (family with 5 children, aged 5-17) stayed at this very well-kept quiet campsite for a week. Fantastic pool area, great pitches with a lot of privacy. Toilet building absolutely clean at all times. Very helpful staff. We will definitely return.

Travelling party: Group of friends

Just come back from 12 nights at this site. We booked through Caravan Club and got excellent pitches. Pitches were flat, well kept and very large. Site was quiet but very friendly. Staff were excellent. Can't understand what the issues are (other peoples comments) with the owners as they were great. The surroundings are beautiful. Fishing is really good in the campsite lake which is vast. Montlucon worth a visit. This is not a "blingy" site but a relaxing, spacious, well kept and lovely site. If you want bling with full-on entertainment then don't go!! All in all a great holiday destination.

We didn't book a pitch just called intended to stay 15 nights but only stayed for 3 instead, we knew the site was slightly sloping but most of the pitches were sloping and needed to use stackpads on legs to level up. the place was deserted averaged about 24 pitches being used and dotted all over the site. Only real time you spoke to anybody was when someone walked past or over at the toilets/washing area.Toilet facilites were spotlessly clean at all times. Fishing wasn't that good unless you are a carper and have all the gear . Way out in countryside area very quiet. Nearest big town 35 kms away. there is a small carrefour about 10mins away.

This is a charming place run by very miserable people. The standards are high, but the atmosphere is like school.

Very relaxing site in huge grounds with safe bike tracks for younger children (around lake and in woods). Kids club ran 3 well organised 1.5 hour sessions per day. As already noted pool was on the cold side for a heated pool, but when the mercury pushes 40 who cares? Water park for smaller children is great. Although we didn't camp this year (stayed in a mobile home) the pitches looked larger than average and generally level. Children's play area could do with a bit of an upgrade. Takeaway covered all the usuals (apart from pizza). The wider area is typical rural France - you'll be hard pressed to find somewhere to spend an afternoon, let alone a day with young children once you leave the site. Nearby Boussac has all you need including Carrefour and pizzas to take away.

Travelling party: Family with children, various ages

A very clean site with reasonable facilities the pool is a bit small and is very cold even thought it is supposed to be heated. Entertainment for very young children is good and occasionally a football or volleyball match was arranged for the older children which was very well organised. Not much to do in the area. Used mainly as a stop-over site. Not many english on site mainly dutch!

Excellent site with excellent hosts. A superb holiday venue. What was intended to be a pass through two day visit saw us spend the next two weeks there!
