Mike Wade, on this campsite in October 2016


Travelling party: Seniors

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

Travelling party: Seniors

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

The site was easy enough to find and we liked the town of Chatel-Guyon. The pitch we were given was fairly compact and with a quite large tree beside it it was a little gloomy. The facilities were adequate and we would use it again though I doubt we would stay long on this site.

Used as a stopover site. Sloping pitches not mentioned in acsi, we were on chocks to the top and still sloping. The receptionist was incredibly rude to us. The washing up sinks had Luke warm water at best. Showers were ok, toilets outside and old. Pitches were a good size and water close to pitch. Close to motorway to use as a stopover. Wouldn't recommend.
