Small, busy, friendly campsite right on the edge of town. Lovely heated swimming pool. Lots of pitches overlooking the river. Small shop stocks basics and local wines. Nice hot showers and lots of electric sockets to use a hairdryer (mine has a French plug).
The visit to the Valrhona factory across the river was definitely one of our best outings and the Train du Gorges was excellent too although you do need to sit on the right hand side of the train as it is moving forwards for the best views.
We were woken up at 0200 one night by a river cruiser docking right outside our tent. We felt the crew must have been deliberately making a racket as normally the cruise boats just came and went without making much noise at all. It wouldn’t put us off going back though because the site has so many other good points but knowing in advance would have lessened the shock.
Very good. Our pitch was right by the river and we loved watching the ships going up and down the river. Lovely views out over to Tain at night.
Only the very noisy river cruiser that docked in the middle of the night and which we were not expecting.
