Fantastic and very helpful, we had problems with gas bottle and they let us have the use of one of theirs. Excellent site and lovely people.
Lovely site, very large pitches, toilets and showers basic but very clean with a new block being built for next year. We attended the meal on the monday night which was a great social evening giving us the opportunity to meet the other campers, the local village is about 5 minutes walk away and the nearest town about 15 minutes drive away.
Very good value for money.
Enjoyed our relaxing 6 night stay. The Dutch owners were very helpful.
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.
Visited the site in September 2015 so many things were closed/not available as expected. The swimming pool was closed but looked attractive though may be a little small if site were full. Pitches are mostly larger than on many sites. Pitched a twin axle caravan without any problem. Pitches marked out with low hedges and fences. There are not many sites where your morning bread is delivered to the door or where the owner shows you around before you choose your pitch!
Really pleasant husband and wife team who are always available to help.
Toilet block is probably the cleanest we have ever seen. Although two years old the block looked as if it opened that week!!
Would certainly recommend it and will definitely return.
This is a unique and beautiful site, very welcoming. It isn\'t often if ever that the site owner shows you to your pitch. The pitches themselves are absolutely huge, and any ordered bread etc is delivered to your pitch each morning. The toilet block is well maintained. I would however prefer if toilet paper was supplied rather than having to bring ones own! This is a great site for visiting Oradour sur Glane, which is well worth a visit; it is very poignant. I would definitely recommend visiting the Visitor Centre firstly, (well worth the admission fee) as this sets the whole atrocity in historical context, and adds to the subsequent visit to the town. I found it a very moving experience.
Having read reports of this being the best campsite in France we were initially diappointed. A rather parched field on a remote hill, outside a small village with little to offer. The martyr village of Oradour sur Glane is a drive away. Onsite, the unisex facilities are immaculate but only half were open; bring your own paper. The pool is small but good and the wifi free. One feature, however, makes this site special. We were lucky enough to be on site on a Monday. The owners provide a three course, communal meal at a long trestle table. The linguistic skills of the Dutch made this a delightful event.
An excellent, well maintained and friendly site with large placements. Good surrounds, able to walk/cycle into local village with shops and cafés and very near Limoges and Oradour sur Glanne. Owners offer a communal meal twice a week which was lovely and morning bread orders are delivered to your door. Good sanitary block but lost one point as no toilet paper supplied. Would definitely recommend this site.
Dutch owned site with some enormous pitches – grassy, hedged and level. Wifi to pay – but couldn’t get on.
Lots of Brits on site whilst we were there – Rotarian Rally. New toilet block with warmish showers, no toilet paper. Walk to plan d’eau down the road with lots of frogs, manmade beach too, swimming possible.
An extremely warm welcome from the owner when we arrived. He personally showed us the facilities and helped us pick a sunny site, then helped us set up. We had a problem with our water heater whilst on site and Antonie (the owner) spent many hours scrabbling round under our van trying to resolve it. He also phoned a supplier to try to get us the spare part we needed. The whole campsite was immaculately clean. Whilst I was using the free internet in the bar Antonie's wife put a large heater on behind me as I was cold. (Wifi was available for 1 euro). On our day of departure Antonie was ready and waiting to help us manually move our van, as it was a tight corner, then he hitched it up for us and he and his wife waved us on our way. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for this couple and we will definitely return and would definitely recommend the site.
