We are a family of 2 adults and 2 boys age 11 &14. We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend as you can get a train for the village into Paris.
On arrival we were greeted by a gentleman on reception who may have even the site owner. He spoke brilliant English and was extremely friendly and very very helpful. He gave us a map of the site and advised us to park up and have a walk round the site to find a pitch we liked.
The site is in an old quarry so is on lots of different levels with some Nice open pitches or little nooks and crannies to get tucked into if you prefer. We chose a pitch on ' L' up near the top and close to the footpath that's leads you into the village and straight to Lidl! Result! The electric points are cleverly hidden in the trees or disguised as rocks. Water points are fast flowing and spread around the site.
This is not a prim and propper site, it's very relaxed, you don't have to have your jockey wheel on a square ! Just find a pitch you like and park up. The grass is very rough and wild. The boys loved it as they were allowed to make small camp fires on the pitch, and as explorer scouts and scouts it was right up their street. If you have a hammock,find the right pitch and its perfect to put one up. Ideal also for groups to get together .
The bar/cafe was pleasant although the beer I found to be overpriced €5 a pint. Food also quite expensive €4 for chips etc. there is a very tired table football(free), table tennis, badminton/volleyball net( take your own stuff), children's play area and a fab slide and castle for the younger kids.
The pool is pleasant, a little cool, lots of free loungers.
Toilet and washing up block we're very clean and toilet paper provided.
Fresh bread, croissants etc can be ordered and delivered to site the next morning.
Overalls very nice site with extremely helpful friendly reception staff.
Although you cAn get a train into Paris we were advised by staff that it was easier to go in the car. On street parking is free at weekends and ALL of August. We were given maps and shown where to park. Very very easy,park near Eiffel Tower.
If going into Paris and you want to do the Eiffel Tower I would advise getting there when it opens or go at night. The queues were horrific.
A great holiday and would definately return. There is so much to do and see in the area, we only stayed for 3 nts and wish we had booked for at least 6!
