Fabulous site, would love to stay again 21/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Lovely site. Stayed for 6 nights in a pitch with 'shed' which included toilet, sink, fridge, bbq, table and chairs. Large pitch. Space for caravan, awning and ar. Plus dog!
    Swimming pools where lovely and clean.
    Reception staff very helpful
    Vets we used for our dog was within walking distance and very helpful. Cost of treatment required to get back into UK was 48EUR.
    The best think was the town of Loches. So much to do within the town and within walking distance.
    Lovely boulangerie a few minutes walk away.
    Very large supermarkets and fuel within 1 km also small supermarket in town.
    Lots of restaurants. Brilliant markets and entertainment in town.

    Disliked: 

    Sadly we seemed to be the only dog owners who picked up after our dog. The lovely path along the river into town was covered in it. Also the dog recreation area on site was also covered and no bins to put it in to encourage others to do it.
    None actually on site but spoilt the lovely path/walk.

    Be aware that the pitches we used back onto the sports fields and once during our stay football was played from 7am by some very loud player.

    Also which can't be helped but neighbouring pitch occupants during our stay seemed happy for their toddlers to scream until midnight then start again at 6am. I appreciate this cant be helped but there is no need to sing to them or shout at them even louder..... not the sites fault though.

    Liked the large pitch and having your own toilet in the Gold pitch

    Disliked: 

    Very expensive for what you get. Very noisy pitch no 6, we were right beside the walkway in the village. People were walking by constantly even very late at night. Staff did not speak much English and could not answer our questions.
