    Visited at the end of September and felt that everything was closed around us, restaurant, two of the three sanitary facilities closed but pool open but Weather not conducive to using it. Felt that the sanitary facilities were in need of deep clean, not helped by dirty footprints, leaves etc from the weather.
    Easy walk ( off road path from the gate) into lovely Loches, well worth visiting. The market is amazing, spreading through the narrow medieval streets.
    We were offered larger comfort pitches at extra cost when we arrived but we declined and looked around at the others, which we thought were mainly of a fairly generous size and water closeby, long electricity leads may be needed if the site were busy.

    A lovely site which we have visited before. A nice view of the castle.

    This is a great site, either for a stopover or longer stay. Its location is ideal whether in a caravan or motorhome as it\'s only a few minutes walk into the lovely town with its chateau, cobbled streets and lovely shops and a large supermarket only 1km.
    The site itself has large pitches, many shaded, spotlessly clean showers & toilets and a nice pool.
    Plenty to see in the local area and a visit to Chateau De Chenoneau (about 30km) a must.
    Note that the reception is closed daily from 12.15 - 14.15 but if arriving during that time there is plenty of parking outside the entrance.

    We stayed for 2 nights on our way south. The site is ideally located for visiting Loches being only a short walk away. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful.The pool and surroundings looked good although we did not use. Would recommend approaching the site from the south as the road through the town is alternate single lane and busy.

    Lovely site, well maintained with green borders and large pitches. Indoor swimming pool was great for time of year. A pain however that WiFi was charged and expensive. A 10min walk into town which is easy. Would happily stay here again. No kids with us and didn’t see any around as it was early May.

    First time visit ... this campsite is closed from 12 noon till 2.15 pm with the barrier down... why oh why do some sites insist on keeping you waiting until they reopen rather than leave the barrier up, choose your pitch and we will book you in after we reopen...
    we chose a larger pitch that i found was an extra 3€ per night, couldnt be bothered to argue after waiting two hours to get in so just paid up.
    nice town within easy walking distance that has fairly large markets on Saturday and Wednesdays
    Great pool complex, toilets and showers in need of refurb but clean and plently of hot water.
    Would i visit again... yes if i timed my arrival for when they are open

    Stayed here at end of August and things were shutting - bar was running out of drink and restaurant had very limited food - just what was left. However superb position near to town and easy to walk to (10 minutes). Town is lovely with many restaurants and good to walk around with good market twice a week. The main plus of this campsite is its position. A lot of English on site and many permanent locations. Pool was good but pleased that we were there out of season. However, I would think it was good for children in the high season.

    So we came back in June! See my previous review from last October - site was very quiet in early June so we got a pick of pitches which were in beautiful condition. The sanitaires are a bit dark & dated although there are a couple of newer showers. No bar or food facilities were open during our 8 night stay. Bread could be ordered at reception. The site was very peaceful & relaxing. The pool complex was very clean with a new slide addition for this season. It did say in the Acsi book that book 7 nights but pay for 6, however we were there for 8 nights & I did ask if we got one free night but got a curt \'no\' from Gilles the owner so not sure why, maybe as we were on a comfort pitch? All in all a lovely stay with plenty of time to explore beautiful Loches.
