Chateau des Tilleuls March 2015, May & June 2019
We last stayed here a few years
ago and there have been lots of improvements since then - a smart reception building, shop and cafe, and some interesting types of accommodation as well as the usual pitches and mobile homes. There is a variety of unusual tents to rent, some raised up on stilts,
some described as "bivouacs", some "tentes suspendues", and four amazing and luxurious tree houses (one even has a sauna and a hot tub!) There are about forty touring pitches, generous in size, and lots of permanent pitches and chalets.
appears to be plenty to do in high season, with a tennis court, basketball court and beach volleyball as well as a swimming pool, and three ponies and a donkey! In low season it was very quiet, but we enjoyed walking around the site, and listening to the birdsong.
We even heard a turtle dove, which was a treat.
The main toilet block is fully enclosed, heated, unisex, and very smart and modern. Loos have seats and paper, showers are operated by the same fob that opens the barriers. You are allotted
a certain amount of time but we found it ample, and the temperature is controllable. However the cubicles would benefit from an extra hook. The smaller second block is much more basic.
We stayed at this site on our way to the Dordogne
and again on our way back. It's just over an hour's drive from the Tunnel, so it makes a very convenient and pleasant overnight stop.
