Probably the rudest reception staff we have encountered in 40 years of camping We were allocated a pitch on arrival(no choice) Our pitch was muddy,impossible to level van and trees were hitting the top of the van.When we tried to pitch elsewhere met with unpleasant reaction,
Toilets unclean .
A site to avoid

Wat een teleurstelling was dit. WC gebouw is van binnen ouwe meuk en zoals mijn moeder altijd zei niet schoon maar wel fris in de ochtend dan net na de schoonmaak. Douches hebben ze geprobeerd zoveel mogelijk in 1 ruimte te proppen maar zijn wel nieuw. Zwembaden zijn prima maar let wel op de eerste tree van het trapje is heel diep en daardoor kan je je knie lelijk stoten aan de zwembadrand. De plek wordt toegewezen, de camperplaatsen zijn deels verhard (bandensporen). De grasmaaier was al heel lang stuk, hierdoor geeft het een hele onverzorgde indruk. Vroeg in de middag stikt het er al van de muggen zonder dat er water in de buurt is? De ligging tov Riom en het dorp is prima. \'s Avonds eten in het restaurant, eerst werd ons te verstaan gegeven dat we hadden moeten reserveren terwijl dit nergens aangegeven staat en niet is gezegd, want ze stond maar alleen en als iedereen zomaar het restaurant binnen komt lopen dan ging dit niet goed komen? Nadat we dan toch mochten plaats nemen was de helft van de kaart niet beschikbaar en bestelden we allebei een andere hamburger maar kregen we hetzelfde. Het was dus een hele slechte ervaring en zijn hier in plaats van 2 nachten dan ook na 1 nacht met gierende bandjes vertrokken!

Wat een dooie boel hier! We zijn hierop doorreis, maar hadden deze camping zorgvuldig uitgezocht. De plaatsen zijn allemaal vreselijk schuin. Het restaurant is toevallig vandaag dicht, waar ik dacht de streekgerechten te proeven. Daarbij missen we nu ook 2 voetbalwedstrijden vanavond. Er is hier niks.er wordt geen enkel alternatief geboden ook. Ik kom hier niet meer.
Ook veel muggen hier!!

Douchen donker ook bij daglicht en geen TL licht aanwezig na 10 uur. Klagen bij receptie geen zin kunnen ze niets aan doen is automatisch. Maar ze wjsten de tijd ook niet precies. Ook nergens aangegeven wanneer warm water en licht er wel zijn. Zeker geen 3 sterren waard.

Ondanks de in september gekregen verzekering t/m week 44 te zijn geopend sloot de camping na week 43 bij gebrek aan voldoende kampeerders. In week 43 was het douchewater bijna koud, werd het sanitair ver na het invallen van de duisternis pas verlicht en was het restaurant gesloten. Een en ander anders dan in de vermeldingen in de campinggids. Kortom, men had geen zin meer.

Stayed here 5 nights at the start od Sept. The site is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the town of Chatel Guyon. The facilities as befitting a 4 star site are good and kept spotlessly clean. Good English spoken by the young and friendly staff This is a large site with static chalets but plenty of room for tourers. Site was in 2 parts one part under trees with complete shade the other more open. My one complaint with this site was the pitches which were small and difficult to manoeuvre into.
Overall a pleasant site, best probably in the low season

Der Campingplatz ist groß, geschotterte Wege, Plätze sind ziemlich schräg, Wasser und Strom am Platz. Schwimmbad ist sehr einfach, nicht geheizt. Liegen waren ziemlich schlampig. Toiletten und Duschen in Ordnung, doch alles machte einen nicht ganz gepflegten Eindruck. Die Speisekarte war sehr klein und das Essen nicht besonders.

Camping sympa. Propriétaires attentifs et qualifiés mettant tout en oeuvre pour des vacances réussies. Camping très propre. Sanitaires toujours impeccablement propres. Aucun papier, et autre ne trainent dans le camping. Point de départ pour visiter l\'Auvergne en véhicule ou à pied. Camping sécurisant. Restaurant impeccable, avec des prix démocratiques. C\'est sûr que l\'an prochain, nous y retournerons.

Belles vacances en Auvergne ! Camping bien situé sur terrain ombragé. Bon accueil et ambiance très conviviale car le personnel est toujours à l\'écoute. Les animations pour petits et grands sont appréciables. Le restaurant du \"Ranch des Volcans\" vous propose aussi des assiettes gourmandes avec de super hamburgers maison par exemple !

Belles vacances en Auvergne ! Camping bien situé sur terrain ombragé. Excellent accueil et ambiance très conviviale grâce à de nouveaux gérants vraiment sympas ! les animations pour petits et grands sont toujours appréciables. Nous avons apprécié ce séjour où les activités n\'ont pas manqué : découverte d\'une belle région, Vulcania... mais aussi détente et repos au bord de la piscine sans oublier les délicieuses soirées au restaurant du camping !
