    Lovely family feel to the campsite. Felt very safe and a great atmosphere. Rent a tent was great. Everything you needed to just turn up and start your holiday. Good 3 night stop on our way down south.

    Disliked: 

    Pool was pretty chilly but I'm sure this was mainly due to the lack of sunshine for our stay which apparently is unusual for the time of year. No toilet paper in the toilets.

Excellent site with friendly english owner with clean facilities 28/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Simon the owner and his family and helpers are so friendly and welcoming. Massive site but it feels like a family site with large pitches underneath the trees or out in the sun if you wish. Plenty of walks in the forest nearby with maps available FOC from the bar. Simon has time to chat with you and mainly english & dutch so language not a problem. If you want peace and quiet this is the place to come. Swimming pool not large but fine for what is needed. Shower and toilet facilities are getting on and a bit quirky at times but they are well maintained and clean and in fact the quirky just adds to the charm.

    Disliked: 

    Weather wasn't too king but you can't do anything about and the Wifi is restricted to the bar area but I was lucky we had a pitch quite near and I was able to use my booster to get a signal in the caravan.

Directions


Local attractions

Nearby is the small village of Saint-Bonnet-Tronçais with its own lake, sandy beach, a number of shops (small supermarket, pharmacy, newsagent, souvenirs and cycle hire), a bar and pizzeria, and a doctor's surgery.

The forest walk starting from the village is very popular with visitors. All through the forest are spectacular sculptures and archaeological sites to be seen along the well-signposted trails.

A number of châteaux and villages can be found in the area, most noticeably the medieval village of Hérisson. The area has many vide-greniers (yard sales), the one along the banks of the Canal du Berry being particularly popular.

During the summer months medieval and artistic fêtes are a feature of the area and in August there is a donkey fair.
