This is a category out of standard which corresponds to sites of exceptional size + 150 m². On these sites you can easily come to 2 families. The great location is limited. For this reason they are assigned priority to hosts who really needs, either because of the size of their camp, or because of the number of occupant.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Liked - Campsite La Truffière is a wooded campsite, with several camping areas. Some pitches can be found on the edge of the large playing field, but others have varying levels of shade in the wooded areas.

On arrival, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff in Reception, and allowed to choose our own pitch, wherever we wanted. The pitches were all clearly marked and large. The area where we set up was shaded by many oak trees, and the ground was hard soil, with no grass. This allowed us to set up a hammock and small tent, as well as park our camper van, and still have plenty of space for tables, chairs, and cooking equipment.

There were two unisex sanitary blocks, with paper provided. Both blocks were clean whenever we visited. We didn't encounter any queues for toilets or showers. There were no seats in the WC cubicles, which is not uncommon on French campsites. The water pressure in the showers was good, and the temperature fine. The shower and wash cubicles and sinks were in a separate room in the block, and you were expected to leave your shoes at the entrance. This was a good policy, as the floor was always clean.

Dishwashing and laundry sinks could be found outside the block.

During the evening large numbers of moths descended on the sanitary block, we had never seen so many moths in one place. Butterflies and moths abound in the area, so it's not surprising they head toward the light of the sanitary blocks at night.

As well as a reception and bar/restaurant, there is a pizza takeaway. We didn't try the bar/restaurant, but the pizzas (between €10 and €12 each) were a little disappointing. This is perhaps the only negative we have about the site.

The reception doubled as a small shop, selling essential food items, and cold wine and beer were also available from the fridge. Bread could be ordered for the following morning.

There was a large field for games and a good children's play area, as well as two pools. The pool was quiet in the mornings but busy in the afternoons and was more a play pool than a swimming pool. The sunbeds were comfy, but could have done with a few more during busy periods. Parasols provided the only shade around the pool.

A free shuttle bus (a 10 seater Mercedes Vito) was provided 4 times a day to nearby Saint Cirq Lapopie. This beautiful medieval town is well worth a visit with its architecture and many artists shops and eating places. It is possible to walk to the town in half an hour, mostly downhill, but the steep uphill return journey is best undertaken by shuttle bus.

We intended to stay only 2 nights, but remained for 4 nights, and this is a site we would visit again if in the area.

Travelling party: Seniors

Liked - It was towards end of season but the campsite which we have visited twice over the last couple of years looked very run down with the staff unmotivated. All the pitches were very muddy and when we visited two years ago were dustbowls. Really some effort should be made to line the pitches with gravel as any grass is non existent. Lack of drinking water taps throughout the site was a problem which needs to be addressed. Will not be visiting this site again and would advise others not to if they don't want to come away either covered in dust or worse still...mud.

Travelling party: Young couple

Liked - Lovely campsite, enjoyed the pool and the bar. The owners are very welcoming and helpful and our pitch was quiet with a stunning view. The little shop in reception had great reasonably priced local wines and also packaged essentials, enough for impromptu tinned or packaged meals, but you may as well eat in the restaurant which is good value.you can order fresh bread for the morning from the reception. there were no particular activities planned during our stay, so my score is just left blank. if you count pool an activity it would be a high score. great stay thank you
