Camping between water

The grounds are tidy with good, paved pathways. The camping site actually consists of two sections. Both sections have two sanitary buildings. These were renovated in 2013 and look spotless. The circular section of the camping site borders the sandy beach by the lake. The pitches here are demarcated with hedges. In addition, there are several types of rental accommodations (such as bungalow tents, mobile homes, chalet homes and a Tit'home).

Activities by and on the lake

The camping site is located on a lake and the adjacent beach consists partly of sand and partly of grass. It lies in full sun, but there are a few sun umbrellas for some shade. The lake makes this a very popular camping site for families with small children, but also among anglers and water sports enthusiasts.

You can practice your skills in several sports on the camping site, such as tennis, pétanque and beach volleyball. Entertainment for children and adults is organised in peak season. For instance, sports tournaments, live music and karaoke.

Dining with a view

In July and August, the café-restaurant is open and you can choose from a limited menu. You can enjoy your meal with a view of the lake.

Liked - Pleasant site situated next to a lake. After we pitched we had a very enjoyable walk around the lake. In the town of Marcon we found the excellent bakery (advised of this at reception when we arrived), I would certainly recommend visiting this establishment the cream cakes are amazing and the bread excellent
Nearest supermarket and fuel together with a launderette we found was at Montval-sur-loir. Wonderful walking/ cycling area worth a visit the glass factory at Ponce-sur-Loir also Jeanne d'Arc Tower at La-chartre-sur-le-loir while there visit the Tourist office for other excellent info..

Disliked - My exceptions maybe higher than some, but I was slightly disappointed with the toilet and shower block. With two doors of entry, one had no handle,the other a cracked window, no loo seats, but it was spotless clean. As for the rest of the facilities we where traveling out of season and everything was closed. However we may stop there again.

Liked - Location right on the lake was amazing. We stayed at the end of school holidays so the site was relatively quiet. The activity centre next door was really good and had a lovely beach with 2 water slides.
Disliked - As it was little quiet not much going on for the kids but we still enjoyed our time and would receommend.
