A great site in a lovely area, smack in the middle of the vineyards! Very friendly and helpful staff, relaxed atmosphere, facilities spotlessly clean, great bar and restaurant with good tasty food. Our pitch was on the lakeside which provided lots to watch and some serious fishing is available if you're an enthusiast. Most pitches are of a good size and are sheltered by trees which is very welcome in hot weather. We particularly appreciated the free wifi coverage in the restaurant/bar area ( provided that you bought a drink). I recommend taking advantage of the free vineyard tour which is in walking distance - this is very interesting and given by a family who are obviously passionate about their craft and you don't have to buy any wine although the prices are very reasonable considering the quality. The free shuttle bus into St Emilion is great, the town itself is stunningly beautiful - if a little touristy! Not surprisingly every other shop seems to sell wine!! A walk around the perimeter provides some excellent views.
