We stayed here for six days in July. It was our first visit to the area as part of a tour of France that took in Dijon, Chamonix, Sancerre and Epernay, and have to say it was a perfect spot for exploring the area.
Our pitch was at the back of the site next to the ever busy cycle path and as we were there while the Tour de France was on, boy was it busy. That said it was great to listen to the differ nationalities chatting as they whizzed by, even if some enthusiasts were out at the crack of dawn.
The swimming pool complex was fab and clean and the restaurant was great too though a little pricey. On our last night we had some take away frites and ate them with a couple of fried eggs - delicious.
The staff were always cleaning the shower block and toilets but I didn't really think they were as clean as they could have been. My main annoyance was the toilet paper... For some reason that is beyond me, there was no loo rolls in the cubicles, instead there were two on the outside. Now I don't know about you but when I go to the loo I never know if I need one sheet or more, so to have to guess how much to take in with me was a pain in the, well you know where. It also led to blocked toilets with people taking too much in and then stuffing it down the loo to block it.
That said we would stay here again for its closeness to the lake and the fab views out across the water.
