best campsite ever visited.
"We have been to many sites in France and this has to be the best. The pitches are all good in size with a mixture of shaded and sunny. Be sure to make your request or it could spoil your holiday.
It is true that the site is predominantly British but this has to be an advantage when you travel with kids.
It is definitely a site for the younger children but not a lot for teenagers. The pool is geared up for primary age kids with the lazy river a must.
We went in all the pool over Whit and although you had to be brave to get in, when in you could stay in for a long time before feeling cold.
You have to have the patience with the takeaway but this is typical of France!
My son had his most animated holiday ever. All the children seemed to play together, with a large water fight taking place each night. To me happy children make for a great relaxing holiday.
I loved the pool complex and the general ambiance of the site overall. The toilet facilites for campers were plentiful with 4 blocks in all. 2 of them had the shower area enclosed for early season. The owners just want you to have a good holiday. They even provide high speed internet for FREE!!
I am already planning to go back in August and hope that this time I am away from some of the less than friendly Caravan Club members."

Very Nice site
"Weâve visited this site twice on our way back to Blighty from trips further afield and found it to be very pleasant. Typically rural French itâs spread over a wide area with large pitches and plenty of open space all separated by trees and bushes. We have stayed both as a tourer and also in accommodation provided by Eurocamp. All the accommodation looks to be modern with decking, the touring areas are in sections of about 10 pitches.
The centre piece is the pool area with a couple of outdoor pools, slides, lazy river and a covered pool if itâs chilly. Thereâs a nice bar and cafÃ© area, a small shop, playground and main reception kiosk with lots of information on the local area. The village centre is 5 minutes walk and larger supermarkets in the nearby town about 10 minutes drive. We stayed in a Eurocamp mobile home which was fresh and modern with decking. Also, the toilet facilities are very good for campers.
A large proportion of guests are well behaved British visitors, not a problem, though it does dampen the feeling that you are holidaying in Europe. Thereâs loads of things to do and see nearby, we went to the zoo in Beauville which was fantastic, took a long trip to Puy du Fou which was worth it, visited local Chateaus and canoed on the river but picked a windy day which made it very hard going. We also did the informal wine trip organised by the reps â you walk there and look around the local rustic farm and then have the chance to sample and buy various produce if you want â no pressure.
The site is within a days drive from Calais and overall is very nice and relaxed."

Excellent holiday, booked last week in...
"Excellent holiday, booked last week in August with family which consisted of a 12 and 3 year old. weather was perfect about 25c most days.
Pool was superb, warm and spotless, hired mobile homes direct with the campsite, good spec. clean. Worth visiting the chateau at Chambord very impressive. Hired kayaks and spent a morning on the Loire, bike hire is available with excellent cycle paths between all villages and into the Chateau grounds.
Blois is a nice town / city only 10k away.
The village is small and clean, had local wild boar available at the butchers. We ate at the only restaurant in the village (by the river) which was excellent (10 out of 10!). Worth visiting the local vineyard (200 meters away) where you can sample and purchase the wine.
Altogether and excellent, quiet and relaxing holiday.

Booked the holiday a week before leaving...
"Booked the holiday a week before leaving, therefore no time for maps, or welcome packs to be arranged, first down side. Camp it's self was very clean and very pretty, but that is really all I can say. The one resturant on site had a limited menu, chicken, steak, or salmon, and at an average of 15 euros a time for a piece of meat and spoonful of vegetables, was not great value for money. The entertainment was none existent, as most people were in bed by 10, definately a site for young kids not teenagers! The shop sold the very bare essentials, and was also over priced, nearly 3 euros for 1 litre of coke, and the bar wanted 4 euros for a pint of larger and 3 euros for a coke or coffee, at todays exchange rates that not good. As for the reps, I saw one when I arrived and 1 when I left, not really a great "keycamp" experience, good job it wasn't my first."

"After a great holiday in a mobile home at the Le Chateau des Marais campsite, I would like to say how clean and well maintained the site is. Plants are watered to bring the countryside into the campsite. The sites are separted by bushes and the site was very quiet at night. The meal at the restaurant was relaxing and young children can play while you enjoy your meal. The only problem I had was the swimming pools were polar, but the lazy river was warm and the jacuzzi was warm, however neither were warm enough for our 4 month year old."

"Excellent. Good sized pitches, excellent play area for the kids, nice quiet bar, which also had a play area. Pools were fantastic. The location was stunning, just round the corner from Chambord Chateau, which was out of this world.
The staff were very helpful, the weather was great. Loads to visit in the area. Chateau lovers!
The only downside was the showers were always cold and this was no good for the kids. Entertainment was provided outdoors on the large play area. Definitely recommend this campsite and would definitely go back."
