Stayed in a motorhome twice for the Paris Marathon in April 12/13. Ok on both occasions, nothing spectacular and a bit tired and basic in places, definitely not caravan club type camping, more like basic uk camping from few years back and once you've got your head around the fact that you stay because its a good base for Paris, and not for the camp leisure facilities, all should be ok. Road noise tolerable, it's a city! Toilets,taps and showers aren't salubrious by any standard, but they are indoors and they all work. We rarely used them as water and power are on each plot which suits us with a whale type water system as we can keep the water connected, a bucket under the waste and empty as required, easy. Toilet waste point is hole in the ground with a hose nearby, no big deal really, and it's no suprise if you've ever noticed what traditional French toilets can be like?! Reception had two pc's permanently online, the staff spoke English and genuinely tried to help, shop had bread, cheese, milk, beer, toiletries etc, didn't need it, but it's there. Bus runs from the gate and 15 minutes or so later arrives at Port Maillot Metro which goes direct to Paris, simple. There is also a local bus which stops just further up the road, never felt the need to use it. We didn't witness "lady's of the night" near the camp and it wouldn't have worried us if we had, some of properties and leisure facilities not so far away are very smart and I've felt more vulnerable in deepest Manchester at times or near Mon Marché/Sacre Coeur, so don't let that put you off just keep your wits about you as you would in any major city. They only down side to the whole trip was an on hire UK motorhome that pitched next door and kept the engine running for, and I kid you not, a couple of hours at a time which I had to question especially when it got late, my tolerance reached a limit and everyone was trying to bed down, the response..... "sorry, but we've haven't got a power lead and need to charge the iPhones via the 12v socket, shouldn't be much longer" absolute morons! That aside, would I use it again, definitely, even though it is expenive, but Paris generally is unles you supermarket everything, and makes the UK and London itself look like fantastic value at times, don't believe me? ever paid £10-15 for a large beer in London, I doubt it!
