A shop and bakery are 600 metres from the site and the local shopping centre is a kilometre and a half away. A public pool, available for a small charge, and a tennis sports centre are within 300 metres.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Take the A6 past Nemours, then take the A77 and exit at junction 24. From there take the D4 towards Sancerre. Crossing the Loire, take the first right after the bridge and continue until you reach the campsite.
History first? Local medieval town Saint-Satur is a kilometre from Sancerre, a village built up around a medieval castle and still with centuries-old houses in its Old Town.
Within about 22 kilometres from Saint-Satur are La Charite-sur-Loire and the Abbey Church of Notre-Dame, once one of the wealthiest monasteries in France and now a UNESCO world heritage site as one of the places on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.
Another historical option is Aubigny-sur-Nère, the French town with Scottish and Stuart connections that still celebrates its French-Scot alliance on Bastille Day. You could also have a look at Nevers, dating back to Roman times and with a spectacular Ducal Palace and Place de la République.
And then biking… among the many Loire Valley cycle routes is the 11-kilometre ride from Sancerre to Couargues to Pouilly-sur-Loire, past the Sancerre vineyards and with spectacular views over the Loire valley over to the woodland of Puysay in the distance.
And then wine? Over 300 vineyards are in the area in and around Sancerre, covering a few thousands hectares of hills. Several of them have wine caves where visitors can stop to try and buy the wines; if you're in the region to pick up some French vino, make the wine centre of the Maison des Sancerre an early stop.
The wine regions of Pouilly-sur-Loire and Menetou Salon are also close by.
