Alan Rogers Review
This traditional rural campsite, located in oak woodland in Burgundy, is surrounded by agricultural land and is within striking distance of the towns of Auxerre, Gien, Joigny and Montargis. There are 29 good-sized touring pitches, with electrical connections (10A) available, and a further seven tent pitches; the remaining 55 are occupied by seasonal units and rental accommodation, including two wooden chalets. The nearby village of Champignelles has a few shops and cafés and a couple of restaurants, while Auxerre is a lively city, a Ville d’Art et d’Histoire and a major centre for wine and gastronomy, with the vineyards of Chablis just a few kilometres east.
A drive of two hours from Paris and close to the A6 and A77 motorways, this could be used either for a stopover on the journey to or from the south-east or as a relaxing base from which to explore the Auxerrois countryside and the vineyards of northern Burgundy. There are museums, churches and castles to visit, walking and cycling trails provide opportunities for the energetic, and fishers will be delighted by the choice of ponds and rivers in the surrounding area.
Heated sanitary facilities include provision for disabled visitors. Bar and restaurant (with a menu of local produce). Bread and pastries, wines, souvenirs and gas available. Heated swimming pool and paddling pool (seasonal). Tennis, bowling, volleyball and basketball. Orientation course. Games for children. Bicycle hire. Wifi (charged). Entertainment programme in high season.
From Auxerre take D965 southwest to Mézilles, then head northwest on D7 towards Champignelles. From north on A6 leave at exit 18 and head west on D943 then immediately south on D3, southwest on D14 and D160 and west on D132/D7 towards Champignelles. Bois-Guillaume is signed to left before the village.Link to campsite location map on google
