Le Vivier aux Carpes

Overview

Cycle routes lead into this lovely and historic area straight from the site.

This pristine, immaculately kept little site is a paradise for anglers and makes for an ideal break not far from home. In the heart of the Somme region, nearer to Paris than Calais and close to many cathedral cities and Great War sites, it makes a superb base for exploring historic Picardy and further afield. There is lots of useful advice and information available from the friendly owners, simple food and drink at a little kiosk with outside seating, and a large and comfortable upstairs meeting room.

This is the second time we have been to this site (once with a tent and once with a motorhome)...

This review is for Le Vivier aux Carpes

This is the second time we have been to this site (once with a tent and once with a motorhome) and on both occasions we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The site is very well laid out with plenty of pitches, both grass and hard standing. The facilities were perfect for us. The site is situated in a village which has a shop and (now) a restaurant. If you go don't miss a trip to the British Cemetery just up the road from the camp site - very moving. At just 2.5 hours from Calais and very near the A26 it is very easy to get to for (e.g.) a weekend away. All in all this has to be one of our very favourite camp sites. I suspect we will return (again and again).

Clean facilities - only one comment that a toilet in the men's block was continually flooded.

Clean facilities - only one comment that a toilet in the men's block was continually flooded. When I mentioned this to Francesca she said they were going to replace it. Well worth a visit. She was soooo welcoming and pleasant that it over rode any faults with the site.

we stayed 3 nights on route back to Calais.

This review is for Le Vivier aux Carpes

we stayed 3 nights on route back to Calais. site was very busy, seems half are seasonal pitches the other half transit due to its close to main route back to Calais. Brits seem to make up the majority people on site. Owner was very helpful and made a booking at the vets to get our dog sorted for passport home. Lots of WW1 museums in the area. Laon is worth a day out.

This review is for Le Vivier aux Carpes

The owner of this lovely site Alexandra, worked very hard to ensure that all her visitors enjoyed there stay. The site is fairly small surrounded by water, therefore possibly not a good place to take very small children, but it does have a small playground. The lake is stocked with a variety of fish, and many people went to the site just for the fishing. The site is clean and has indoor washing up facilities. We were close enough to visit many of the World War I sites. We also discovered on the last day that Paris is only one and a half hours away on the train from St. Quentin. We will definitely return to this pretty little site.
