Possibly the most welcoming of 6 sites visited on this trip. Restaurant good but not inexpensive. Small shop providing staples. One minus point was difficulty in levelling motorhome on (mostly) sloping pitches. Small herb garden with "Help yourself" sign. Would return to this site if in area.

A wonderful site with great views over the surrounding countryside, direct access for a small river. Very open spacious pitches and excellent restaurant. The whole site is run following strictly eco-friendly principles but that in no way spoils you enjoyment.
