We planned to camp at Defiplanet for 5 nights and soak up the sun. We booked a pitch which had electricity, a shed with a fridge inside and sun beds. At £125 all in we thought this was great value. Reception staff kindly spoke excellent English and we all had a giggle that we had arrived in horrendous rain. It... More

We stayed here in the stargazing cabin. Our expectations were high, but unfortunately it was terrible. We arrived in the afternoon, everything went well at the reception, no doubts about that, but when we arrived at our cabin, it was extremely hot inside, like a sauna because the cabin was made of wood. We opened the door and the roof... More

Many thanks for taking the time to post your feed back. I am glad that the reception was welcoming. As described on the site and in the photos effectively the accommodation is built in wood as are the majority of our accommodation. The accommodation is cleaned during the morning and is closed after cleaning the temperature can climb during the... More

We stayed on the campsite here while travelling through France. We found it in our camping guide books and on paper it sounded ok. It is attached to this extremely odd collection of attractions. The reception is under manned and unorganised. It was very, very expensive and included only the very small swimming pool. The pitches were huge but had... More

We stayed one night in a roulotte. The reception staff were welcoming and quick. The roulottes were situated in the trees, and we found they were well spaced and very shady which was lovely because it was over 30 degs when we stayed there. Fly screens on the doors and windows would have been a good idea. They were small,... More

I was a little concerned about this trip, having read some of the reviews and being both retired and disabled - but my friends had booked it and invited me to join them! We had a wonderful few days staying in extraordinary accommodation (The Sprites' House) which was built entirely of wood. The rooms were all clean, the beds comfortable... More

We (2 adults, 3 children) stayed in a gypsy caravan at Domaine de Dienne for a week in August. The campsite is located on the outskirts of a small village but was easy to get to with sat nav.
