The campsite itself was fine, and the position by the Saône is attractive, but the sanitaire was dirty and not cleaned in the 3 days we were there. The washing up area looked as if it had not been cleaned for a month! We will not be going back there again.

This has to be the worst site we have ever had the misfortune to stay on. Only plus is 10amps of electricity, which after 2 months of 4-6amps in Italy was welcome. However, that had reversed polarity. Toilets and showers were filthy. Didn’t try the restaurant as it was closed at lunchtime. Lots of flies, wasps and ants in August. Better facilities in some aires!

Well, where to start..... wish I'd read the reviews before entering this site. It appears nothing much has changed since 2011, the 'sanitaires' are still in the same condition. The ladies was locked and was told to use the gents, only went in once as the site was quiet, used the motorhome toilet after this, as it was a better experience. I know the French aren't bothered about separating male and female, but us English are more prudent. My husband went and showered in the gents, but he came back and said they were dirty, which I thought that when I entered the gents.

The guy was very attentive when we first arrived, rushing to greet us from the opposite end of the site and take our money for the 2-night stay (appalling for such disgusting facilities or lack of). He said we could use any pitch as it wasn't busy and it was very muddy too.

The restaurant wasn't open either.

We will not be returning to this site and hope that someone reads these reviews before booking/staying, unlike myself.

Basic riverside site, with easy walk to town. Very poor sanitary facilities most in need of cleaning & repair & no doubt inadequate when site is busy. As previous reviewer has noted, be aware that Acsi discount card is only accepted about 6 weeks in the year - poor value!. Extra charge for wi-fi.
