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 more extended stay. The 65 well-spaced pitches are at least 100 sq.m, mainly on flat grass with dividing hedges. The 40 for touring units all have 10A electricity, and there are special pitches on gravel for motorhomes. This is a neat, purpose-designed site imaginatively set out around attractive fishing ponds, which are naturally unfenced, and has a comfortable feel. The enthusiastic owners speak excellent English and are keen to welcome British visitors.

This site is ideal for fishing enthusiasts and couples seeking a quiet holiday. Facilities for children are excellent, but there are no organised activities, and there is a lot of open water to tempt young children. The outlook from pitches on the largest of the ponds is most attractive, with small animals (sheep and goats) in a field on the other side, linked to the camping field by a small footbridge. There is also abundant wildlife. The cathedral city of Saint Quentin is within easy reach and has a wealth of history and architecture to offer as well as good shops, bars and restaurants. Other possible destinations for days out could include the cathedral cities of Reims, Amiens and Laon; Disneyland is just over an hour away, Compiegne and the WW1 battlefields are near, and Paris is easily reached by train (1 hour 15 minutes from Saint Quentin).


The clean, modern toilet block has spacious shower cubicles (pushbutton controls) and a couple of washbasins in cabins. Toilet facilities may be under a little pressure at busy times. Separate, heated suite for disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Basic motorhome services. Open-air snack bar and takeaway (July/Aug). Large games room. Large play area with an acrobatic structure and football area. Pétanque. Fishing (about € 6 p/day, € 35 p/week). Gates open 07.00-22.00. Rallies welcome. WiFi over site (charged). Cycling and walking tours from the site.
