Alan Rogers Review

In the heart of the Oise valley, close to Chantilly and within striking distance of Paris, Camping de l’Abbatiale consists of a small traditional campsite of 30 pitches, a section with 25 mobile homes to rent and a large area of 245 pitches devoted to residential and seasonal units. Ten pitches have hardstanding, the rest are on level grass including a pleasant little group, separated by hedges, round a central grassy area with a covered picnic table. Electricity (6A) and water connections are available, and five have their own electric connection, tap and drain. Mature trees offer some shade in places.

Nearby is a lake with swimming, fishing and boating, the banks of the River Oise are within walking distance and a large Natural Park is a short drive away. The impressive abbey from which the site takes its name, now the parish church, stands on a hill overlooking the valley. The town has a number of shops, bars and restaurants, and there is a market each Saturday; there is also a train service which will get you to Paris in less than an hour. The nearby Château de la Guesdière is worth a visit and there are numerous parks and several ‘Forêts Domaniales’ in the area. The attractive town of Chantilly is an easy drive away and offers a wider choice of places to eat and shop.
