Another site that lures you in with heated pool it might be time to add another cup of hot water as it was cold? The toilets could do with being sorted out and up dated lovely site could do with spending some of the wifi money. Lovely site but will not be back.

Only night halt, but it’s in a great area. Short walk to river and if a bit warmer would have liked a swim. Interesting toilet arrangements, showers were hot.

Stopover only on way to the Ardeche. There is not a lot for us in the area, so we use it for convenience to the motorway. Staff and restaurant are great , views are good, but rest is basic . Will still use it , but wont do more than one night

Arrived on site at lunch time but notice to say pick a pitch and contact reception later which we did. Nice pitches overlooking scenic Valley. Staff/owners very friendly and welcoming. Toilet facilities are very good and indoor pool is small but lovely to relax in. We had our evening meal in the restaurant and would highly recommend it. Great site for a stopover with easy access to motorway yet no road noise. Would definitely use this site again.

This place is a gem, just loved it. We chose our own pitch which had good hedges making it seem very private. The site was very tidy and a joy to walk around the different tracks discovering things such as the orangery and the walk down to the river. The sanitary block was clean although I did find the indoor pool rather fresh. The restaurant provides a basic menu and was good quality at a fair price. Fresh bread was ordered, it was excellent quality.
The family who owns and has run the site for 32 years are friendly and when I raised a reported a blocked sink caused by another camper it was dealt with immediately.
A site in a lovely location which I am sure we will return to.

Overnight after long journey. Approach via narrow last bit, and reception closed. Note to choose pitch and pay later on door. Some pitches have great views of the river. This is an old castle/chateau so facilities are based around that. Pitches large and easy to navigate. Will use again as i will fish in the river next time. Only indoor swimming pool open, and indoor toilet blocks near that open, but all acceptable. Good access to and from motorway

Nice site situated in the grounds of an old fort. Owned and run by a Dutch couple. Bread ordered for next day. Showers and toilets although clean could be updated showers only warm. Most pitches are tight to get into so a mover is required . wonderful views over the surrounding area. Have been stoping here for years to and fro south of France and Spain.

Stayed here for one night. Chateau gardens are beautiful. Staff at reception (?owners) were extremely friendly and helpful. Staff at brasserie were efficient and very friendly and we spent a very pleasant evening chatting to a French couple and a Belgian couple. Food was good and reasonably priced. However we thought the pitches needed some attention as the hedges were very overgrown and the pitches were mostly soil with sparse grass - surprising given we stayed early in the season. I am sorry to say we found the unisex sanitary facilities to be inadequate.

What a fantastic site. Very picturesque and authentic. Showers excellent. Take own paper to loos, which are spotless. Walk in to the village pleasant but not much to see tbh. The bar is lovely and Philipe an absolute delight

We stayed just one night in September on our way south. The site was easy to find and although reception was closed we were invited to site ourselves and on checking in later were given a warm welcome. We chose a large open pitch with lovely views, some of the pitches on the other side were quite enclosed and seemed dark. It was a fair distance to the toilet block and these did look as if a little refurbishment was needed although the water was hot. We enjoyed a reasonably priced tasty meal from a small menu in the brasserie.
