Detail information about this campsite

P.C.H. Scheers "Family campsite with tall trees on the river La Creuse, 1.5 km from the tourist (SPA) town of La Roche-Posay. Very spacious pitches. Ideal to discover the charms of the Poitou-Charantes region and the castles of the Loire. The campsite offers water sports activities and, in the high season, many fine children's animation."

Liked - Great pool
Disliked - No soap in washrooms.

Soap is a basic requirement in toilets. Imagine all those hundreds of people on the campsite having pooed, wiped their bottoms with thin paper then not washed their hands properly! It is disgusting!

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - The campsite is so clean and well looked after. Staff are so friendly. The cottage was clean and in good condition. The children love all the amenities. It feels safe.
Disliked - Nothing we disliked but we felt the bar food could be better quality. It would also be very nice to have a lane in the swimming pool for adult swimming. Maybe a couple more washing machines so you don’t have to queue.

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

Liked - Staff are very friendly and helpful. Waterpark is a decent size. Indoor pool can get busy in late afternoon but still manageable. Overall play area is relatively expansive for size of site and has multiple sport options like basket ball, table tennis etc.. Morning bread service very handy. Bathrooms are kept clean and showers work well. Site overall has a very relaxed atmosphere.
Disliked - Recycling could be better - could actively promote it and add lots of signs. Food in bar could be a little cheaper and better (especially the pizzas). Owners could make the animations for younger kids more varied and engaging though the staff do their best with limited resources. Washing machines don't clean clothes that well.
