Having not been abroad camping with our little ones (2-4 at the time of the trip) understandably we were nervous. We had no need to be. There are so many reasons we love this site... 1) It is small, gated, safe so we had no concerns letting our small people run around with their new friends. 2) It has everything...

Yet again we had a great time at Le Chant. It has everything that a camper needs and all clean and in working order. Lots of other reviews tell you what is available weekly so I won't go into that. What I will say is that it was the reviews of Stu by the non-attentive, maybe even non-caring, parents that...

Just got back from an enjoyable week staying here. We stayed in the lovely, picturesque Heron gite which was well equipped and spacious. The hosts, Stu and Syb are very welcoming and friendly. There's lots of lovely touches at the site such as a baguette, cheese, wine, milk etc waiting for you in the gite when you arrive, during the...

We camp a lot but this was our best camping experience so far. We were planning to spend just a couple nights there but we ended up spending our whole week! Stu & Syb were really friendly and chatty from the first minute we arrived (we got a `welcome here` cup of tea). They helped us a lot with maps...

Hi Amanda. Thanks for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to have you all here. Just picking up on your point about the 'lack' of toilet/shower facilities that we have here, I'd like to mention that there are rarely queues for the facilities, even in high season, and many of the reviews we get here on TA and elsewhere...

Having read lots of great reviews of this small cl type campsite we decided to make it our base for 6 nights recently whilst visiting this area. It was absolutely charming and the owners Stu and Syb went out of their way to make you feel welcome. The facilities are a little rustic and could do with an update but...

Just spent another week at Le Chant, admittedly it had been a while, but it was just like coming home.

Spent a week at LCDO campsite being looked after by Stu and Syb. Great site with amazing facilities - the barn and camp kitchen all made for a great atmosphere. We really enjoyed the meal night, pizza night and the impromptu bbq. Small camp site in the country - quiet (except for all the owls hooting!) with fabulous skies at...
