This is an ideal parc for young families. The pool area is very good with warm pools and cooler pools, covered pools and a great lazy river! My grandchildren enjoyed learning to ride two wheeler bikes and loved going to the eurocamp club. The village has a few shops and there is a supermarket about 15 mins away. We all had a superb holiday!

Accomodation: we had a classic tent for 7 nights, initially all looked rosy, except the pitch we had (f4) looked a bit bare and scrubby. Then we had a thunderstorm that lasted for a few hours, the pitch turned into a muddy river with the water from the road and other pitches flowing into it. At all times the tent remained dry, but thats not really the point, the site is not drained well. After another afternoon down pour we asked to be moved, and our second pitch was perfect, grassy, sunny and reasonably drained - probably into our old pitch!.
We are a family of 4, with kids aged 12 and 14, the parc is aimed at younger families, but the kids enjoyed the pool, and we enjoyed its location in the Loire, perfect cycling to Blois, Beaugency, and Chambord on the La Loire a' Velo cycle routes.
The Parc shop is great an has most things you'll need, plus theres a Super U in Mer about 5km away, which is expensive but comprehensive.
Great location and holiday, spoiled only by a poorly drained site.

We all had a great time and we feel it was good value for money as we took advantage of 4 hours of fun station everyday and the daily free swimming lessons.

The girls at the fun station were fantastic and helped coax our son into the activities when he was a little unsure about them.

The swimming lessons helped our son a great deal as he was very wary of water prior to the holiday but by the end of the week he was diving in the pool!

Lots of kids around and quite a lot to keep them occupied.

The accommodation was basic (espace) but did the job. Not a huge amount of space and trying to cook a meal was a challenge due to the lack of kitchen space. Next year we are going to try the aspects as they are a bit bigger.

The options for food were a little limited on site. There are two restaurants but one only seemed to serve pizza for adults and the other had no vegetarian options. As my wife is vegetarian we ate a lot of pizza!

Overall a very positive experience and we will certainly be back.

Our second site on a two site holiday. We have visited before but there were more families there this time, hence the pool complex was much busier. Had we realised this before booking, we would not have used this site. I would suggest a review of the wording in the brochure. Weather was indifferent however countryside and wider location really interesting.

The parc was very good. The kids were very well catered for, by Eurocamp and the parc facilities. I didn't think the Eurocamp couriers delivered anything really.

Pretty, clean parc. Alas, very busy and at times pool area overwhelmed. We stayed in a Treehouse which was great for space - including the tent provided just below. Bit disappointed with the design of the treehouse, as essentially two rooms with a terrace in between - so no wow factors internally. FYI the "composting toilets" are just buckets in a commode set-up (so no smell).

Shop onsite was small but reasonably stocked and moderately priced. Plenty of supermarket options nearby. Location good for Chateau visits etc.

Overall fine. Our kids are 11 and 13 and I think a little dull for them. Clearly very popular with small children. Wifi was 3euros a day or 30mins free at the bar.
