The extensive Loire valley 'Loire à vélo' cycle route is only about three miles away, via country roads and local cycle tracks.

Access to the site from the main road was difficult, as the instructions said there was a sign to it, on the central reservation of the dual carriageway, but unfortunately this was missing.
Toilet block always clean however, there were only 2 plate washing sinks - this didn't affect us but if the site was busy it might have caused congestion. There was another block, but a distance away.
Very helpful reception staff - booked us a taxi and spoke to the driver to arrange meeting point for our return journey - also booked this for us.
Just one minor comment - there was no dedicated Motorhome service point - the drainage gully was in the middle of the road at a mini roundabout, which was a bit odd - holding up traffic!
Lovely planting through the site, making very pleasant walkways through.
- Location: Country
