Camping Le Bohat     June 2008

 We did not do a review at the time.  Some notes will follow.  My recollection though was it was good.

Maine et Loire, Clere sur Layon

Camping Le Serpolin    December 2012

We did not do a review at the time.  Some notes will follow.  My recollection though was it was a good  English owned CL type sight with camping field and a couple of hardstandings.  Owners very friendly, we were greeted with a mug of tea.

Storage facilities on site, both covered and open.  Leave your caravan, it is towed into storage, then put back on a pitch when you return.

Castel Le Bien Assise             June 2012

A useful site at Calais.  We did not do a formal review as we were only there one night, but I recall a nice big pitch!

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.

There 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.
