we stayed at parc de montsabert from 11/8 till 25/8- 2 adults and two children aged 8 and 6. we rented a Tit home on site which was excellent value for money - proper beds (well sort of..), a sink unit and hot and cold water, a fridge and a toilet! very clean and new. the facilities at the site are great - fantastic pool, lots of sunbeds, bouncy castle, trampolines etc. our kids loved it as they are just the right age. older kids might be bored. our kids adored the kids club - they were heartily entertained by the lovely group of 'camping kids' staff - a really enthusiastic and committed team. there was a kids disco each night, boules, petanque, water polo, colouring competitions, stuff throughout the day if you wanted that.
the management were a bit odd - we saw a couple of times that the site manager got really upset with children being a bit boisterous on the bouncy castle - theres a way of dealing with these things and he didnt do it at all well. also on our last day - with a dozen kids waiting for kids club to start the management cancelled it and told the staff to do cleaning duties instead - not impressed with that!
the bar/restaurant is ok. tended to be shut by 10pm. food a bit limited although we had nice crepes there a few times. we thought the prices for soft drinks and ice creams were horrendous- E2.50 for a can of lemonade for example!!!
fab things to do nearby - brissac quince - gorgeous town esp on market day; saumur - beautiful; angers and chateau; doue la fontaine bio parc/zoo - excellent; nearby caves where you can see mushrooms growing and snails being bred. also sold lovely wine. overall fab holiday but two weeks in one place was too long for us - we would do week max here if we came back. supermarket nearby - 20 mins drive to Super U in Gennes. or a small shop in coutures 2 k away.
