Camping in the forest

The camping site is easy to reach via the N-149, which leads you through a hilly and green landscape to a pine forest. The camping site is well maintained, with respect being paid to the natural vegetation of shrubs and tall pine trees. The pathways are partly unpaved and the pitches are very spacious. Each pitch is demarcated with natural vegetation, providing privacy and shade. There are some occasional picnic tables. Rental accommodation consists of a Mongolian yurt and luxuriously furnished glamping tents.

Swimming pool

The swimming pool is a standard type pool, but provides sufficient playing and swimming fun during warm days. It is located in full sun, so sunblock cream is recommended. It is surrounded by loungers with sun umbrellas where you can enjoy reading a book in peace.

Entertainment in various forms

The camping site has a mini golf course, two playgrounds and a recreation area with a table tennis table, table football game, pool table, small library and TV. No excuse to be bored here! You can go for fabulous walks in the adjacent forest.

Pizza from the wood-fired oven

On the camping site you can get a snack or a pizza from the wood-fired oven. There is also fresh bread daily. You will find a supermarket, a bakery and a snack bar within walking distance.

A lovely site set in quiet woodlands with walking and bike trails close to Futuroscope with a village only 800m away.

Did a two night stay here on route to Caen which works well as it’s a good distance and not far from motorway. Lovely warm welcome from English owners who made our stay very enjoyable they made us feel like part of the family. We arrived in a heatwave for which the site is perfect lots of large shady pitches. There is an English speaking vets in the village so a good place to get your dog wormed before return journey. We will definitely be using this site again and can not recommend it highly enough.

Very relaxing stopover en route to Italy from Brittany. Friendly English couple running the place and lots of shade which was good as it was so hot. Short dog walk on site and good sized pitched. Given the location it was quite expensive for a stopover and we might have stayed another night had it been a little cheaper. To be fair there were facilities which we did not use but might justify that cost.

What a gem of a site! Simple, slightly rustic, but with huge pitches, all with electric hookups, set among dense woodland of oak and fern, honeysuckle and broom with woodland walks and the sounds of crickets, cuckoos and a host of birdlife. This is a rural French delight unspoiled by the ritzyglitzy megasites around this part of France.
This is what makes it special, while the British owners who bought the camp site two years ago and have been become with their children part of the local community have a totally hands-on approach. We should also mention the incredible quality of the FREE wifi connectivity - Madame Mayor after battling the authorities and providers finally got high speed cable broadband into her commune of 700 and connection at the site is actually FASTER than BT provides us with their so-called \'premium\' connection in the centre of Plymouth.
Vivre le France et Mme le Maire au Chalandray! The bar serves two varieties of draught bier - including the challenging Grimbergen . . .
Currently, the UK TV series Escape to the Sun has been recording a programme about their experiences of acquiring the site, while in a few days (from the time of writing - May 25, 2018) they await the visit of the inspectors who decide what category the site should be listed as. Currently, it is a lowly - much too lowly! - 1 star, and they hope for an uplift to three. And we would support that wholheartedly.

We've just returned from a week on at this campsite with our 2 children aged 2 and 5 and we loved it! Beautiful setting in the forest which the kids loved exploring. Also great facilities with the play area, crazy golf, tennis and the pool so lots to keep them entertained. Great little bar too serving drinks for us and ice cream and smoothies for the kids. Super friendly owners who made us feel very welcome.

What a gem! Delightful camping amongst mature trees. Very spacious pitches. Good clean facilities. No need to be pressing buttons during your shower, just switch on and go. Water nice and hot. Lovely village with boulangerie and well stocked SPAR within easy walking distance. Friendly new English owners (Henry and Kat), couldn't be nicer. Nice walking routes in the area. What a fabulous find. We were sorry to have to leave and will definitely be back.

"Quiet campsite situated in a forest with many tall trees, only 1 km from the local shops. The campsite has a nice swimming pool, a tennis court with practice wall and a fine English owner. At the campsite you can stand on the 0 Meridian. Many bicycle and hiking opportunities in the immediate vicinity."
