Alan Rogers Review

Situated behind the arches of a 19th-century viaduct, not presently in use, this ten-hectare site is a real delight, being divided by a small river, which is dammed for swimming, with a short causeway crossing. The owners have developed a site which shuns the razzmatazz of many holiday sites yet is welcoming and relaxing, making the most of its natural setting. There are 137 touring pitches ranging from small to very large, all with 10A electricity. Although one side of the site is on a gentle hill, all pitches are flat and almost all are shaded. A few have wooden terraces overlooking the river.

The bar and restaurant area is set at the entrance to the site and has a large, welcoming, covered terrace, which is also where the WiFi is located. The village of Saint Jean-le-Centenier is some 2 km. away and has a restaurant, a bar and a small supermarket. Some simple activities are arranged for children and adults in high season. This is a site to get away from it all and recharge those batteries. Excellent English is spoken.


Two refurbished toilet blocks and a newly built block are kept very clean and tidy. Baby room. Facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Bread is available in high season from reception. Outdoor heated pool (15/5-31/8). Bar (15/6-31/8). Small restaurant (July/Aug). Well constructed play areas. Boules. Fishing. River swimming. Bicycle hire. Chalets for rent (plus 2 gîtes at the farm).
