Alan Rogers Review

Le Merle is a low cost woodland site located on the edge of the Morvan Nature park. There are 59 pitches here with 43 for touring and all have 6/10A electricity. The irregular shaped, slightly sloping and uneven pitches are laid out naturally under mainly silver birch trees, which give pleasant dappled shade. The site is on the banks of a small lake and the adjacent watersports centre, open in July and August, has pedaloes, bikes and canoes for hire. The snack bar and bar overlook the small swimming pool, paddling pool and lake. Twin-axle caravans are not accepted. Rock pegs are essential.

The lake, fed by spring water, has a sandy beach and a lifeguard is on duty in peak season. Fishing is very popular here and the lake is well stocked with carp, tench, perch and others. Cycling is also very popular, with over 500 km. of marked trails in the region. By way of contrast, the Formula 1 circuit at Magny-Cours is close at hand and hosts numerous events throughout the year. Another popular excursion is to the city of Nevers, the principal city of the Nivernais, with a history dating back to Roman times.
