Alan Rogers Review

Vivier aux Carpes is a small quiet site, close to the A26, two hours from Calais, so is an ideal overnight stop but is also worthy of a longer stay. The 65 well spaced pitches are at least 100 sq.m. on flat grass with dividing hedges. The 40 for touring units all have electricity (10A), some also with water points, and there are special pitches for motorcaravans. This is a neat, purpose designed site imaginatively set out with a comfortable feel. The enthusiastic owners and manager speak excellent English and are keen to welcome British visitors.

The layout takes full benefit of large ponds which are well stocked for fishing. There is also abundant wild life. The cathedral cities of Saint Quentin, Reims, Amiens and Laon are close, Disneyland just over an hour away, Compiegne and the WW1 battlefields are near and Paris easily reached by train (1 hr 15 minutes from Saint Quentin). This site is good for couples or fishing enthusiasts.
