Positives: The site manager was really friendly and spoke excellent Franglais :-) The shower rooms were warm and the showers were piping hot. Motorhome area hard standing nicely located with view of lake
Negatives: I couldn\'t get their wifi down at the Motorhome area. Quite a lot of road noise including lorries overnight. No water supply at the toilet cassette emptying point.
Overall a decent overnight stop if you need electric and shower but next time I\'d probably go for the nearby aire

Lovely site and would visit again. We turned up on D Day in June which was very busy everywhere (most sites fully booked up) having booked a completely different site 6 h drive away by mistake with a similar name, but the owner was lovely and still managed to find room for our Motorhome. We couldn\'t use the Acsi card on those few dates as it was peak time but it was still a great value .

There is a small pool but it has a cover and the temperature of the water and air inside was beautifully warm. The pool area itself was immaculately clean with modern sunbeds positioned around the outside so a lovely ambience for relaxing. The owner was actually in the pool himself on day 2 of our stay scrubbing it clean.

There is a motor home grey water dump area at one end of the site and a long black hose pipe producing mains pressure water so you can fill up your water rank quickly.

There\'s a clean modern heated toilet / shower block ( separate male and female ) with 2 good showers in each. There\'s a chemical toilet dump point outside and a tap adjacent for washing out the toilet cannister. Showers are lovely and hot with adjustable temperatures. Toilet paper is provided and paper hand towels.

The local town is around 6 to 10 min walk away and a good Lidl supermarket around 8 min walk or a 2min drive. There is also a nice walk around a couple of small lakes next to the campsite . We saw people fishing there.

For kids there is a small sports area with astroturf fir playing football or basket ball and there were also hers in the pool for water sports.

There is some occasional minimal road noise at the pitch but it wasn\'t a problem. The pitches are a good size, private with nice hedges around and have good spacing. There\'s electric hook up too at the pitch. Athough there\'s no water at the pitch you can fill up a water container at the toiiet/shower block which has big sinks for dishwashing and laundry washing. There\'s a washing machine and dryer available too at the utility block.

There\'s also a small café /bar on site with some nice decking and seating outside .

Overall the site has a lovely friendly ambience and we would visit again. The French couple who run the site were very helpful. We found our 2 night stay relaxing and hassle free. We would recommend this site for caravans and motorhomes . They also had chalets for rent which looked modern, neat and tidy plus a couple of well constructed half pod half tent type things which you could hire. The hedges and grassy pitches are well maintained , despite one night with heavy rain, the pitch didn\'t get boggy .

Just lovely .

Stayed here on nights of 13th and 14th June 2019 on our way back to Cherbourg. The camp site is neat and tidy and the pitches were a good size and well maintained.
The location is excellent with short easy access to the motorway and the Leclerc hypermarket at Agneau is only a ten minute drive for food and fuel.We booked while on another campsite and found communication with Valerie quick and easy and excellent and really went the extra mile to help us sort out a problem of our own making.

LES Lac des Charmilles was an excellent find for us and we plan to stay again next year.

There was a good welcome at this campsite and we found the new managers very friendly and helpful. The pitch was a decent size. The facilities were clean and the water was hot. It is just moments walk from the small town which we found very French & appealing - we would return here.

Warm friendly welcome, large marked pitches, excellent toilet facilities. A large lake and park directly accessible from the campsite. Supermarket within a short walk.

Have stayed here for the last 3 years, site now appears to be under new management but still very good. Toilet facilities are good, pitches tend to be sloping but with a few bits of wood unit easily levelled. Swimming pool good. Nearness to town an advantage, walks around the lake lovely for a stroll after evening meal, if you have a dog even better. Lidl supermarket within walking distance. For the dog owners looking to get pet passport stamped the vet at Conde sur Vire is ideally placed and very obliging. All in all a good site for all ports, Cherbourg, Caen and Le Havre.

Used this site as stop over both north and south on our trip to the Vendée. We tried last year in June but it was closed as the new owners were not ready to receive campers. This year they were open. A site well located for access to the town of Torigni that is no more than. 5 minute walk. A Lidl supermarket also in town was very handy. The lake that is adjacent to the site is a lovely walk especially with the dog.The new owners are very friendly and willing to helping all ways. Toilets and showers are very good and clean. The pool was covered when we were there owing to the adverse weather but it looked very nice and welcoming. The pitch that we had the first time need a cut of the grass, some were better tended than others. You will need levelling blocks as the pitches slope sometimes in 2 directions. There was a bar/restaurant but was closed at the time of our visit. If you have a dog then this site is very handy for the vet to get the passport stamped for the return to the UK, not within walking distance but not too far with a decent sized carpark for us motorhomers!!

Stayed here 2 nights in May 2017. Great setting with easy access to lakes with walks around each and via one into the town with a range of shops and bars. Town centre market all day Monday with local products, e.g. honey, vegetables, fish and meat plus clothing and accessories. Grass pitches well screened, sunny and some shade, but can be a distance to water tap or hook up. Our 25 metre cable just reached via someone else's pitch. Owners very helpful and friendly always ready for a chat (in French with a bit of English). Swimming pool looked very inviting but no time to use. Toilets and showers heated but only 2 of each - no problem during our out of season stay. Wash up & laundry sinks with very hot water plus a machine. Recommended for a quiet country/water setting.
