A modern, good quality city site in a parkland setting on the outskirts of Amiens
A modern, good quality city site, convenient for the A16 motorway, the cathedral city of Amiens and exploring Picardy. A warm welcome is extended to members here and there’s plenty of information on hand about Amiens and its cathedral light show. Further afield, the First World War museums in Péronne and Albert along with the moving Somme memorials are all highly recommended, while Paris is only one hour by train.
Managed by Alban de Francqueville, English spoken.
A16 motorway one mile, Amiens centre three miles (by foot); (20 minute cycle ride). Paris 85 miles, Calais 100 miles, Le Havre 113 miles.
Open pitches; 130m²-160m²; most with electricity (10A), some with water and drainage, some hardstandings.
Perfect for a relaxed break in beautiful surroundings, with the town close by.
Still a peaceful haven after visiting all the sites.

has the following facilities on or around the site.

Modern wash blocks
Pitches very small for caravans and awning. Probably more suitable for motorhomes. It is essential to look before you agree to pitch. Our pitch was so small that we were allowed to use the neighbouring pitch (40 and 39).
Toilets were very smelly and in each of blocks only one WC working. For one day, no toilet paper until 10:30pm. Queues at toilet every morning.
On the plus side it is 5 minute from a new canal walk which is beautiful. Also beside a lake park which is useful for walking dogs - no option otherwise.
I couldnt really recommend it

The site has a good location just 3 miles from the centre of Amiens.It's located by a local park and surrounded by lakes and a river.This can mean there are a few midges about!
Welcome was good, particularly as we arrived early but this didn't pose a problem,we pitched straight away.There was always an English speaking person on duty. Fresh bread can be ordered for collection at reception on a daily basis.Lots of local information available in reception and staff always willing to fill in the gaps.
We didn't use the cafe but it did have very limited opening hours and menu.There is no shop but supermarkets are within easy reach of the site.
The site does have static caravans and lodges, so caters for all types of holiday maker.
Pitches are large. There is no over crowding and the 6' club ruling is very definitely followed. There is a feeling of space which aids relaxation. The EHU can be a problem if you do not have a long lead. There is plenty of shade from trees as well as wide open spaces.
There are separate toilets for men and women but shared showers. Both were kept very clean and there was always hot water both in the showers (push button but a decent time lapse) and with the more than ample washing up facilities. There is no soap dispenser in the toilets.
The cycling in and around Amiens is very good and it is nearly all off road into the centre. Amiens itself is a pleasant city and there are plenty of places of interest to visit.
The journey to the Somme Battlefields and all the towns of interest including Albert and Thiepval is an easy one, taking about 30 to 40 minutes depending upon where you want to go and which route you take.
Most stay for 1/2 night stop overs but on reflection I wish that we had booked a few days longer than 4 nights we stayed as it was a very pleasant site with lots on interesting places nearby.

Although the site facilities were basic compared to UK standards they were adequate and clean. The bus stops outside the gates and takes you directly into Amiens (well worth a visit) The traffic noise can be intrusive particularly in the early morning and late evening. Being next to a lake and having few hardstandings the pitches can be a little soft after rain, you may also need a very long electric cable depending on your chosen pitch.
