As we arrived at lunchtime in low season we expected reception to be shut for lunch and were pleasantly surprised to find it open and a welcome waiting, especially as it was raining heavily.
On the plus side, there are two warm swimming pools, one indoor and one out. On the minus side, the site roads are rather narrow and there are a lot of trees. However, at the time of our visit, early in May, there weren't many visitors, so not many vans to manoeuvre around.
The site prides itself on its care of the environment and has solar heated facilities. Sometimes we didn't find the water as warm as we would have liked.
There are a few places to walk and cycle close by, however, be aware of signs restricting some paths. Chateau Cheverny is just a short trip up the road. The house is interesting, supposedly the template for Marlinspike Hall in Herges Tintin stories. The park is extensive and you can take a boat ride. We also visited Blois and, a little further away Amboise (Clos Luce, home of Leonardo de Vinci)
Nearest supermarket, a SuperU straight down the road, to the first roundabout on the outskirts of Contres, about a 15 minute drive.
