The site is a very well maintained Les Castels site which also includes Eurocamp & Keycamp mobile homes. The site is laid out very well and is quite small so wherever you are staying it is never too long to walk to the main facilities. There is a shop with fairly reasonable prices (although it will never compare with supermarkets), a bar on site as well as a restaurant - food was good and again reasonably priced. They also do take away pizzas. There are 4 swimming pools - 1 with water slides, one deeper pool, one shallow pool and one toddler pool with small slides. Also a bouncy castle and a games room near the shop and various swings, climbing frames etc. dotted around the park. Lots of other activities including pony trekking.
There were lots of British, Irish and Dutch on site plus a few French, German and Belgians while we were there. The site is ideal for younger children and seemed to be popular with these sort of families. Not too many older children who I guess may get a bit bored here. We loved it as did our 2 year old daughter, particularly the pools. Close to Saumur (6km) which contains all amenities you require (shops, petrol, supermarkets etc.)
The site was generally very well kept and although we were in a mobile home I did look at the wash blocks and toilets for campers which were always very clean. Washing machines, dryers and irons available there too. We stayed in a Eurocamp mobile home which was great and catered for everything we needed.
The camp has a quiet policy between 10pm and 8 am which seemed to be well observed.
The local area is very beautiful - this was our first visit to the area but will certainly not be our last. If we return we will certainly look seriously at staying here again.
