This is our favourite site in France, large pitches and beautiful surroundings; the Dutch family that own it are very friendly and hardworking, everywhere is very clean and tidy will return for sure.
Lovely tidy campsite with very large pitches and new facility block. Owner greets all new arrivals. Bread delivered to each pitch is a bonus. Walks and cycle routes are provided. sorry to leave the site as we felt so comfortable here.
The young owners were very welcoming and on our first night did an excellent 3 course meal including Lettuce and shrimp soup, all other amenities were very good stopped her to visit Oradour sur Glane.
Friendly Dutch owners, who were only to pleased to answer all queries. Largest pitches we have found in France, also level. Clean, new, well laid out ablution block. Wifi iffy, but no worse that anywhere else. Would definitely stay here again.
In six weeks of touring in France, this was my favourite site. It was before the French holidays so very quiet which probably helped. The Dutch owner, is a really laid-back character and met us, shook hands and showed us around to choose a pitch. The pitches are enormous - the biggest I've seen , and immaculately kept. The toilet block was brand new and not yet fully open but was superb in every way. They even had toilet paper!! Once a week you can order a roast chicken, and on another day he does full meals, and your bread order is delivered to your door each morning! The pool is also superb. the nearby village is small and attractive but with no shops to speak of. The only grip I could possibly have is that I had to walk close to the office to get wifi. This is something you encounter all the time and I wish someone could deal with it in this connected age! The site is ideal to visit the awesome Martyr's Village, Ouradure-sur-Glane ..
Excellent site with huge pitches, the owners are really nice and give you a tour of the site on arrival. the new facilities block was near completion and is spotless, I could not see ramp access to the block which is slightly raised although they have disabled facilities I think it deserves more stars that it currently has and will definitely stay there again .
A lovely quiet site. The new toilet/shower block was still partly incomplete, but approx 50% of showers and toilets were in use and were excellent. Obviously brand new but spotlessly clean. We were early in the season so not all activities were underway, but bread delivery was much appreciated.
Above all we must mention the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. We had a plumbing problem in our van and they couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you.
We just love this site and the wonderful young Dutch couple who run it. First discovered when friends had a house nearby, but now we just go for the site, usually on our way home from Spain. Alouettes is handy for visits to Limoges and Oradour sur Glane. There are plenty of walks in the surrounding forests. Early morning and evening bird choruses are amazing in spring. Pitches are very generous and the new impressive sanitaire building was just about to open when we left. Fresh bread and croissants are delivered to your van in the morning and you should try to get to one of the twice-weekly table de hotes meals. Last time we found ourselves the only Brits among a dozen Netherlanders but were made to feel very welcome. There's also an excellent little restaurant called La Mandoline in the nearby village of Cognac-la-Foret. A gem of a site.
After being turned away from a camp site in Rochechourt due to being a double axle caravan we discovered this site and were made very welcome by the owners. Nothing was too much trouble for them and the family atmosphere was amazing. Bread was delivered each morning to your door and t was a lovely quite and relaxing site.
We stayed for 4 very enjoyable nights (pity it was not longer), whilst there we joined the set diner, which was alfresco very well made and good value. Overall the pitches are huge, and the site is extremely well kept. We would definitely use again if in the area.
