We chose to upgrade ourselves a little this year from the simple tent and we took a 4 four berth cabin ...ashamedly only for the two of us. we were positioned at the end of the campsite between the pool and the river, with a direct view of the Chateaux from the decking outside the cabin itself. it was perfect!
If you have a camper van the pitches tend to be very dusty due to the dry weather and the camping pitches are really only for overnight cyclists. We didnt sample the delights of the toilet block as we had our own but judging by the cleaning staff they didnt seem to bad.
We wondered at the amount of people likely to be going past us to the pool but we needn't have worried it is peaceful despite the number of children on the site. The pool is great to cool off and isnt freezing cold and there's plenty for the kids to do including an end of week show!
We found the two young girls at the desk very friendly. If you need trips out they can get them discounted especially for trips to the wine producers and also if you need to know whats on!
The cabins themselves are modern and clean, a little cramped perhaps for four but they can get incredibly hot if the windows are closed when you go out. We tended to put the valubles in the car and leave the windows open during the day which helped. You could bring an electric fan but that would depend on your luggage limits.
The coffee maker is a filter type so if you like a cafetiare like us bring your own. You can order bread and croisants on site but it is a little pricey when compared to the supermarche. Dont forget your sheets pillow cases, tea towels as they aren't provided. A spare loo roll will help too!! Also you need to make sure that you clean up before you leave.
A word of warning as it is near a river the midges are out and when night falls they are definitely biting!!!.. so bring your citronella candles and your bite cream with you.
