We stayed in August '13, had an unforgettable time.  A true escape.  Relaxing atmosphere after a warming welcome from Tracey and Pete.  Made us feel at ease enjoying a drink together in the evening.  Friendly fellow campers.  Felt comfortable on site.  Great facilities.  We used their canor along the river one day and it was so tranquil and secluded, unforgettable paddle with the damsel flies.  We are looking forward to a return in the future!!

We stayed for two weeks in August.  The site is peaceful, calm and laid back.  Quiet, as it is adult only which we like but hard to find in France.  There are no 'set' pitches so you have the freedom to locate where you want and there is enough space no to be on top of  each other.  There is an above ground pool which is great when it gets hot.  Tracey and Peter are great hosts, they can't do enough for you but give you lots of space.  Exactly what you want on a campsite.  The location is great, in a stunning part of the Charente.  The stars at night are breathtaking as there is no light pollution.  We have really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this site.  

peace and quiet  *****

We stayed in July/august.  This is a superb rural site within easy reach of Confolens and many small French villages.  Not too far away are some superb swimming lakes.  The site is very well kept by Pete and Tracey who make you feel very welcome and find nothing too much trouble.  The facilities are first class with plenty of hot water and space to get changed.  As this is an Adult only campsite you can enjoy the company of other like minded people with plenty of space around you.  The swimming pool is superb for a dip to cool down in the day or late in the evening.  You can find a nice relaxing spot down by the river to read a book or do a spot of fishing.  It is even possible to borrow the campsite canoe.  All in all I thoroughly recommend this campsite to anyone wishing to get away from it all and enjoy the beautiful rural countryside.
