Reviewed 15 December 2016

Wonderful area to visit with lots to see. Despite 4 days of heavy rain out of the 5 we were there the site remained well-drained and accessible. The newer facilities were very good but the older ones were in real need of up-dating.

Useful convenient stop in part of longer tour of the area. Not somewhere I'd return to. Loos were smelly, dated and rather nasty. Didn't use showers. Shudder at the thought. Went to see what was on offer at restaurant but declined. Nothing to tempt me. Frankly was glad to leave the next morning. Within walking distance of town of Chatel-Guyon...

Mobil home 25, dog friendly, dark and dingy, spongy shower room floor, cramped. Not nice. Grass on site very long, looked uncared for. Local town had no interest. Wouldn't rent a Mobil home from them again, expensive for accommodation given. Breakage deposit €460, total joke.

Hello, This is not without surpise that we have read your comment about your stay in our campsite. To respond to your comment about the grass being too long we want you to know that it is cut every 3 week or one month. As you may have seen, while you were in our campsite all our employees were trimming...

On our way back from the south of Spain, we decided to have a stop with our camper onot this camp site, not knowing what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with the motivation of the owners, the clean sanitary building, and the wild west theme that is everywhere, even in the restaurant! The restaurant serves very good meals for...
