Alan Rogers Review

The village of Lyons-la-Forêt, with its Mediaeval covered market and magnificently preserved half-timbered buildings is classified as one of ’les Plus Beaux Villages de France’. Within walking distance of the village, next to the playing field and public pool, this quiet municipal campsite is a delightful and peaceful spot. The site has 100 level grass, numbered pitches, separated by hedges with a variety of mature trees providing shade. There are 53 for touring units, each with 6A electricity, water and drainage; hardstandings are available. Seven chalets to rent occupy some of the pitches overlooking the clear shallow stream which runs the length of the site.

Along the bank is a narrow, beautifully-tended lawn with occasional garden seats and the essential life-buoys. The site is well cared for by a pleasant young couple, the husband ensuring that even the lawns of the privately-owned seasonal caravans and mobile-homes are kept immaculate, The village has a wealth of historical and architectural treasures, a few dating back to the Gallo-Roman period. The austere but impressive brick-built Hotel de Ville was constructed in the 18th Century as were Les Halles, the open-air but covered market place that is still at the heart of village life today. Among other buildings of note are two 17th Century Convents and a group of three stone-built water-mills from the same period. The Church of Saint Denis is on the edge of the village having been built in the 12th Century on the site of an ancient pagan place of worship.
