On the positive side this site is open all year and only just off the motorway. It also has a heated washroom. Sadly this site has suffered with under investment for some years. There is a complex barrier system that requires a code to enter AND leave. The entry key pad is before the new arrival park so you have to back up to operate it. We were given a wrong code so ended up tailgating in and out on our 24hr stay! You receive an A3 colour plan of the site with information about the surroundings which is really unnecessary (and costly) for over nighters. In March only the main washroom was open. This was in a poor state, ceiling coverings hanging down, lights not working, clothes hooks missing, shower heads blocked, but as stated earlier it was warm with plenty of hot water - a pity there has been little or no maintenance. The pitches consist of compacted earth without the usual gravel covering - even with little rain before our visit mud was a real problem. Most pitches have water and drain, however our drain was blocked with leaves which along with overgrown hedges and trees again points to little or no maintenance. The site claims to have dishwashing facilities but we couldn\'t find them - perhaps they were in the facilities that were not open. This is a top price ACSI site that doesn\'t deliver.
Great site for visiting Lyon. The staff were very professional and helpful, despite being very busy. The pitches vary in size a bit and have varying slopes. Worth driving round and finding one that suits. WC/shower facilities were ok but need a bit of a tidy and the shower I used (at the end of the run) had very poor flow and needed some maintenance, but my husband said the gents was fine. No food was available on Sunday but we were directed to a restaurant just outside the site. Bus stop to Lyon just outside site.
We stopped over here on St David's day. Despite being so early in the season (March 1st) the welcome was professional, and the site well organised. We arrived at rush hour, the traffic was heavy and tempers in the van got a bit heated as instructions were tricky to follow even with a sat nav! The weather however was dreary and we moved on without seeing Lyon. Toilets and showers great.
Busy place! Don't arrive in the evening rush hour or you'll think you're driving through London! Awful traffic, but it is a busy city.
Not a fan of this site personally, pitches were poor but the showers were great. Stayed one night, and that was plenty.
Staff were really helpful, especially telling us how to get into Lyon. We spent the whole of September in France and Spain and only used ACSI sites (16 in all), and all toilet facilities were brilliant as was the staff. Always helpful and spoke good English.
We stopped for 2 nights so we could visit Lyon. We found all the staff helpful and English was spoken.In reception there are suggestions of where to visit in Lyon and we were given explicit instructions on transport(bus and train- easy).We bought our travel tickets in reception, not expensive. The plots are hard standing and OK for a short stay. Some taffic noise but then you are just off the A6 which is very convenient and there's a hypermarket 5 mins away. A well run site and one I would recommend.
Had a two night stop to visit Lyon. Campsite staff not over friendly. Only one Sanitation block open as low season. Sanitation block under reception and good and clean. Found it had to orientate pitches with map given at first as unusual layout. Pitches narrow and along the roadways. Had to use leveling blocks as pitch on a slope. All hard standings. Unfortunately don't have motor-mover and while we were out someone pitched very close to our draw bar making it awkward to hitch up. Free wifi hotspot but didn't work with our chrome book.
Drove into Lyon on Sunday and found free parking along by the River Soane. Less than a mile to walk to roman ruins and Basilica. Site easy to miss but very close to Petrol station on roundabout once you go through Porte de Lyon Arch.
