Just outside of Le Mans we found a lovely site. It was a location we chose based on a fifth wheel recommendation. This site was closed for many years, but reopened in 2017 and is gradually being renovated and increased in size. Martyn and Louise are a lovely English couple and happy to chat and help where they can.
Just outside the site, there is a stunning weir and grass area, perfect for a picnic. The beautiful village nearby is a short walk and has most of the things we needed (and plenty of patisseries our waistlines could have done without), if only there was a laundrette as well! Louise recommended a laundrette in Le Mans about 15 minutes from the site outside the large Auchan shopping centre.
The toilet block is mixed like most in France, but it was very clean and even though my first shower was a little cold, after a chat with Martyn the temperature was turned up.
Access to the site
Each pitch is large with plenty of space for our large RV, car and still space to sit outside and play. The campsite is pretty with lovely plants and we were lucky enough to see lizards, red squirrels, bats and giant snails.
There are a few exploratory walks marked out, one which passes alongside the site and then follows the river into the town.
The site is open 365 days a year, which is rare in France; though you have to book in advance for the winter months!
