Weinig plaatsen voorzien voor ACSI-leden wel mits bijbetaling zijn andere plaatsen te verkrijgen. Ideale camping voor gezinnen met kinderen. Bijna een speeltiuin met camping er omheen.

Excellent site nestled amongst large trees giving shaded and partially shaded pitches. Pitches are generally large and many have individual electric, water and waste at no extra charge. Toilets are cleaned regularly and are of high standard. Hot water for washing up and hand clothes washing and washing machine available. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great for families in high season and us oldies in low season. Pool facilities good. Bar and restaurant good but a bit pricey and nowhere else local to go that\'s walkable. We\'ll situated to visit Châteaux at Chaumont (by bike easily), Chenonceau, Cheverney, Amboise, Blois, Chambord to mention just a few. Would definitely come back.

Das Gelände ist sehr schön,wenn auch etwas holperig.Die Toilettenanlagen sind nicht sehr sauber, da etwas zuwenig geputzt wird und auch rel.kompliziert.In nächster Umgebung kein Rest.

Großer Platz direkt am Loire-Radweg gelegen. Von hier aus kann man mit dem Fahrrad sowohl Amboise (25km) und Blois (19 km) gut erreichen. Der Radweg ist gut ausgebaut und führt z.T. auch an der Touristischen Weinstraße entlang, an der auch einige Cave liegen.
An der Rezeption findet sich zahlreiches Informationsmaterial zu der Umgebung, ebenso kann man ermäßigte Eintrittskarten zu den Schlössern erhalten.
Der überdachte Teil des Schwimmbades ist beheizt. Im kleinen Supermarkt können leckere Baguettes und Croissaints bestellt werden.
Für Kinder gibt es einen Spielplatz mit u.a. einem Trampolin und einer großen Hüpfburg. Die Kinder-Animation ist abwechslungsreich.

Negativ sind die drei sanitären Anlagen aufgefallen. Diese sind zwar nach Geschlechtern getrennt, allerdings finden sich in einem Raum sowohl Duschen als auch Waschbecken und Toiletten, d.h. letztere nicht abgetrennt von den anderen Bereichen. Es findet sich keine Seife und Handtrockner in den Waschhäusern. Diese werden auch nur morgens und nachmittags gereinigt. Die Waschhäuser sind zudem unzureichend beleuchtet.

Mooie familiecamping waar veel Nederlandse gezinnen verblijven. Zwembad, animatie en zelfs een markt met streekproducten. Blois (mooie stad) ligt op zo\'n 15 km via fietsroute bereikbaar.

Nederlands sprekende eigenaar, super vriendelijk. Omgeving voor fietsers zeer de moeite waard. Sanitair is schoon, maar mag zeker wat ruimer van opzet.

Mooie camping. Gastvrije ontvangst. Leuke fiets mogelijkheden naar o.a. Blois. Heerlijk verwarmd zwembad.
