Overnight stay planned but extended to 2 nights and would have stayed longer time permitting. Good site for dog owners as walks in abundance just outside camp entrance. We liked the \'feel\' here. Good sized pitches spread around, not all in rows. Excellent walks / cycle paths into the town and there are many restaurants / cafes along the riverside with a pretty park adjacent. The pool was ok. Very warm covered pool, but the surrounding path was hard on the feet ! As standard it closed about 7.30 pm which we think is too early but all the sites we visited seemed to operate this policy ! Would definitely go back here. The bread ( order night before) was lovely.

Stayed two nights in May. Weather was hot and the pool a delight- heated. Toilets were well maintained. Would have liked more pressure in shower and piping hot water. Staff on site friendly and very helpful. Campsite tucked away from main road. Walk into town was around 20mins. Lovely river cafe on the way.Would happily stay again if passing through. Vichy was interesting to visit.

Wir waren 2 Nächte im April auf der Durchreise hier. Weil sehr schönes Wetter war sind wir mal ins Schwimmbad. Leider war da beim Einstieg kein Geländer. Bin sofort ausgerutscht beim ersten Schritt ins Wasser. Also kann ich nur raten ein Geländer anzubringen.

Bezoek was in het begin van juni. Camping was erg nat en was vergeven van de muggen. Na lezen van alle beoordelingen komt dit al jaren voor. Moesten \'s avonds de caravan in vluchten

We love this campsite, it is the only site we have visited every year on our annual French tour. We have witnessed improvements to the facilities each year, the covered swimming pool is excellent. There is always plenty of hot water for showers and dishwashing. The wifi is free and you can order bread etc at reception each day. There is a good choice of pitches, most with some shade. One of the reasons we like this site so much is that there is a feel that you are camping in the wild, it has not been manicured beyond recognition. The site is run by a lovely family, they even remember which pitch we like to have. Vichy itself is interesting and beautiful, with plenty of walking and if sport is your thing there is so much to see and do, from canoeing on the river to watching the horse racing. There always seems to be some sporting activity taking place when we visit. We will be back in 2017 for our 7th visit, can\'t wait!

Rustige camping, prima voor een paar dagen. Vichy op loopafstand (2km), mooi park met strandje aan de rivier op ca 1 km. Op de camping nette ruime plaatsen met overal gratis WiFi. Plaatsen zijn deels afgebakend en er is voldoende zon en schaduw. Sanitair verouderd en ondanks dat het niet druk was matig schoon. Alleen gewone wc\'s zonder bril. Klein, niet erg aantrekkelijk zwembad: ijzeren hek met daarachter een kale betonplaat met een bak water in het midden. Brood komt uit een automaat die door een bakker wordt beheerd. Smorgens om 8 uur was er geen brood. Bakker is overigens dichtbij en daar is de keus natuurlijk een stuk groter. Tussen 18 en 20 uur zijn er een paar snacks (tosti, pizza, friet) te krijgen bij de receptie. Receptie is vriendelijk en geven desgevraagd genoeg informatie.

Haben diesen Platz nur als Übernachtungsplatz gewählt. Schöne Stellplätze teils sonnig/schattig. Sanitär sauber alles gepflegt. Rezeption nur stundenweise besetzt. Ruhig in Stadtnähe. Würden wiederkommen.
