This is the second time we've stayed here (the last was in 2015) and it was just as lovely as before. Still my favourite campsite in France. This year felt particularly wonderful as it was such a contrast when coming from Lockdown England (and we now wouldn't be able to go because the new quarantine rules). Basically, it's got 'classic' campsite stuff i.e. heated pool, toddler pool, bar football table, cafe serving pizza, nice locations for all sorts of camping ( we brought our own tent, but there were lodge cabins, cabins and placements for people who want electricity as well.), but it's also got an indefinably charming atmosphere. The location helps a lot: it's a beautiful stretch of the Loire, which just begs to be swum in, but there's a sort of free for all with regard to rules. Not that it isn't Covid compliant (there was hand sanitiser everywhere, the bar staff wear masks etc.), but it's just free. No 'set' time for going to bed, but everyone seems to get on. My ten year old son loved playing in the impromptu football game that took place each evening; my twelve year old daughter liked wild swimming in the Loire and reading her Kindle in the hammock by the river; my six year old liked pottering about on his bike, and jumping into the pool. In terms of new developments, there's now a Zipwire facility on the site (though run independently) but that too kind of integrates well into the environment. It integrates into its location beautifully. Personally, my experience with Richard who runs the camp is totally positive. And on the one day when a storm was threatened, he and a colleague personally toured the tents making recommendations about where the water could rush through, if it were a massive storm (which it proved not to be). They go the extra mile. Love it.

Room Tip: The 'loft' cabins look amazing, though we didn't stay in one.

Please be cautious with regard to this campsite as there are a number of unresolved health and safety issues. In our family’s case one of six dangerously unsecured metal pool umbrellas standing over six feet tall and five feet wide blew off its post and caused a head and neck injury which resulted in hospitalisation, a CT scan and treatment for a severe head ache and whiplash. Two of these umbrellas were by the children’s pool. Two attempts to resolve the safety issue with the owners resulted firstly in a major argument in which our bag was thrown across the pool area by Richard and he told us twice to F*** off and threatened to throw us off the campsite when it was clear that we needed to attend a hospital. On the second occasion we spoke to Sophie who explained that they already knew there was a problem with the umbrella’s missing a safety catch and she attempted to ignore us and then sent Richard to our pitch to ask us not to complain. When we left a week after the incident no action had been taken to make the umbrella’s safe. For a campsite that is allegedly eco in culture and boasts a wellbeing area you simply cannot conduct your business in this unsafe manner or shout, swear and argue with your guests, particularly one with a head injury, irrespective of whether you find them “a bit rude” to use Sophie’s words. The matter was a health and safety issue and a guest has been injured and needed treatment, unfortunately the dispute became about Richard’s ego. We were offered no help whatsoever and no support to attend the hospital. An apology is an alien concept to these people and we wished we had read the negative reviews prior to booking a two week holiday for young family which mentioned rude and dismissive owners. At least the umbrella did not land on one of my children’s heads. The insurance company are now involved and have passed the incident to their legal team. Next year we shall be staying on a Huttopia site who boast excellent safety and customer services standards. Having been keen campers since 1998 we were utterly shocked at our experience at Cosy Camp and hope that they will look to revise their safety and business practices. We also reported the incident to Cool Camping.

Lovely campign, beautifully situated with gorgeous views. We loved the atmosphere, there is much to do and everything is relaxed and simple, yet perfectly organized. The frog pond, the marshmallows at the campfire, the canoe to borrow, the swings, pool, the fact there are many games around the campsite. We loved also the safari tent we rented. It was very spacious , comfortable and very well equipped. The restaurant was good, simple dishes but good food. Nice variety, we ate there 6 nights ina row and did not get bored due to the daily dishes. The surroundings are beautiful: nature and culture And very little tourism.

The usual concern - why write a review that will lead to idyllic tranquillity getting busier? Because we were at Cosycamp for what must have been one of their busiest times, and were still in absolute heaven. I was worried two weeks in the one place might wear thin, but there were still so many things we were wishing we'd had time to do. The campsite is thoughtfully designed with fantastic attention to detail, and great care taken in its maintenance. We stayed in a Lodge Cabin which was comfortable, cool despite 30°C and peacefully located at the back of the site. The 3 kids in our group (6, 6 and 8yo), were in great form and more than entertained for the entire time. The combination of no cars, and bikes lying around everywhere lead to hours of some game (there my have been water pistols involved...) leaving us adults with lots of time to read, chat and drink coffee on the shady veranda. Lovely for them to have independence in safe surroundings. The pool is gorgeous, and highlights in the area were canoeing from Monistrol, Son et Lumière in Le Puy, lace museum in Retournac (me not the kids!), the market in Yssingeaux, and the public pools with waterslides/ diving boards in Vorey and Retournac. We'll be back. Just with fairy lights next time.

Beautiful camp site by the river Loire. Choice of rough camping, glamping of small lodge. Not too big. Great base and so many things to do (walking, swimming, zipwire, kayaking, Velorail or jsut sit by the poor). great hosts and fab little restaurant. Very untouristy. Most people seem to return at least once!!
