We really liked this campsite. The owners are very friendly and efficient, on arrival we were given handouts of useful information and the option to change our pitch from the allocated one. The pitches are more or less level, a bit dusty and vary in size and shape. It looked as though all the pitches had some shade to a degree as the whole site is quite wooded.
The sanitaires were modern and very clean – in fact it seemed to me the cleaners lived in them, they were cleaning so often!! The two unisex blocks between them contain 11 showers, 7 toilets, 1 urinal, 6 private washbasins, 2 non private w/b, a baby bath, 2 washing machines, 1 tumble dryer and 4 washing up sinks. Despite the fact the campsite was full whilst we were there, I only had to queue for a toilet, but not for a shower. There is no soap in the toilets but plenty of toilet paper – no plugs in the washing up sinks – take your own universal plug.
There is a restaurant – limited choice but food quite good – also provides take away pizza & chips, a swimming pool 20m x 10m plus a smaller pool for young children with poolside bar, a small children’s playground, trampoline, volleyball net, area for playing boules and a charcoal bbq area. There is a lovely parkland area with a small lake containing fish – no fishing though. One facility not normally seen on a camping site is a car washing facility, so it was a pleasant surprise to find a dedicated car washing area complete with equipment. When we visited wifi was free and Le Haras was the only site we stayed at where we could actually use wifi in our caravan without having to walk to reception for a connection.
You could order bread at reception but we used the village boulangerie or nearby supermarkets – also in the village is an excellent fruit & veg shop (also sells eggs & boxes of wine), a charcuterie, a boucherie, tabac, spar shop, pizza takeaway and more. There is a very pleasant large lake (Plan d’eau) a small distance from the campsite which you can walk round.
A very pleasant site in a great location and very keenly priced. What’s not to like?
