Alan Rogers Review

In a peaceful, verdant location in the Sarthe Valley, between the major cities of Le Mans and Angers, Hippodrome is a three-hectare, municipal site close to the river. A towpath nearby leads directly to the town centre with its picturesque square, shops and restaurants. There are 67 touring pitches here and seven mobile homes to rent. The pitches (min. 80 sq.m) all have 16A hook-ups. The site is run on strong environmental principles, and welcomes visitors with disabilities - more than half of its pitches and one playground are accessible. Dinner cruises along the river are popular, and 2015 celebrates the famous Petit Sablé biscuits.


Two sanitary blocks with hot showers, washbasins in cubicles and facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machine and dryer. Motorcaravan services. Small shop in reception (1/5-30/6). Fresh bread and pastries to order (May-Sept). Outdoor unheated swimming pool (15/6-15/9). TV room. Playground. Fishing. Themed evenings (July/Aug). Charcoal barbecues only. Bicycle and canoe hire.
