Alan Rogers Review

Although this attractive site is small, the hardcore roads give access to remarkably large grass pitches separated by small hedges. The larger pitches have little shade but at the far end an area of trees offers smaller shaded pitches for tents. There are also 27 immaculate mobile homes and 10 chalets. Electricity (10A) is available for 14 pitches and there are two hardstandings. The site is Tourisme & Handicap approved and offers two chalet and facilities specifically for disabled visitors. The friendly, English-speaking owner is justly proud and offers a warm welcome to her eco-friendly site. Quietly positioned, it is ideal for those who wish to enjoy relaxed rural pursuits.

A charming reception serving as library, shop, and tourist information is housed in an old farmhouse, together with a communal room used for occasional theatre, talks, visitor participation and low key entertainment. A ten minute walk to the village provides a supermarket, restaurants, bars and shops.
