Chateau De l’Eperviere Holiday Park

Set in grounds of 16th century chateau in the middle of France’s best know wine making region the Chateau de L’Eperviere is a pretty location for your holiday. If you’re looking for Blackpool or Ibiza types of entertainment then this one’s not really going to do it for you but for small families it’s perfect. Perhaps you’re looking for an overnight stop on a longer journey south? If so you’ll find it pushes all the right buttons as well. On arrival there’s a reception where you’re on safe territory as they speak English which is just perfect when it comes to organising the internet and WiFi access that’s available on site. If you want to bring man’s best friend (the dog not Match of The Day) then they’ll also be pleased to help out. The site has a number of other useful facilities that include laundry and dryers and are also pleased to welcome guests who need disabled facilities. There are also 3 safe playgrounds for the little ones.

This is a small campsite with only 160 Pitches and is open between 31st March and 28th September for guests staying in chalets. If you want to stay in a tent then they open a little later on 14th April.

For 2012 all tents will be refurbished with new external and internal canvasses. They will have two bedrooms and a separate living and kitchen area and a set of patio furniture for you to use. The kitchen comes with grill, gas rings and a fridge and you also have a charcoal barbecue which will help you put together some memorable family meals in the open air. You tent will also have external walls that can be completely opened up during the day putting your holiday bang in the middle of the French countryside.

The chalets at Chateau De L’Eperviere are two bedrooms, one double and one twin and all have shower and toilet facilities. They also have separate kitchen and living space with an additional two sofa beds in the living room if you need them. Your kitchen is perfect for self-catering, a real home from home, with everything you’ll need. There’s even a charcoal barbecue outside which is perfect for the summer evenings. You may want to choose a chalet with outside decking which is perfect for summer dinning.

Facilities & Activities at Chateau De Eperviere

There is a small on site animation program which organises wine tasting events which is probably what you’d expect for this part of France. They are organised between 7th July and 19th August.

There is a restaurant on site that is actually inside the main château building where they serve traditional regional specialties and where they also have a children’s menu. Take away pizzas, chips and other French specialties are available from the pizzeria in the main château. Forgotten the bread? There’s a handy little minimarket that’s perfect for self catering stock ups and a main shop for more general holiday essentials (post cards, sunscreen – that sort of thing).

Chateau De L‘Eperviere swimming is very family oriented. There are three pools for you to choose from. One is an outdoor pool for toddlers only and the other two, one indoors and one outside, are suited for all the family. If you are looking for more sedate water sports activity then there is a whirl pool and Jacuzzi and sauna open between 25th April and 30th September.. For a really low level of activity there are sun loungers available of the sun terrace. Activity wise the site offers table tennis, football and fishing and boules tournaments that they arrange on a regular basis. If you’re looking to get out and about there is also cycle hire shop with all the accessories (helmets, kiddie seats) you’ll ever need. Chateau De L Eperviere also has a small friendly bar that is just perfect for a late afternoon refresher.

Off site you can find canoeing, tennis, gymnasium, golf and boat trips all within short distance of the camp site. The area has plenty of attractions not least of which is a street theatre festival between 21st and 24th July in Chalon sue Salone. Don’t forget you are in France so look out for street cafes, bakers and cheese shops that are so different from our own supermarkets. The kids will love them. Best of all, track down a market but just remember to get there early. Local attractions include the Touro Parc en Beaujolais which is a wildlife park with small railways to get around in. The Parc Touristique des Combes is a leisure park with summer bob sledge, train rides, various other theme-park rides and makes a great day out.

    Superb location also an ideal campsite to stopover if you are travelling to Southern France. The mini-market and bar are both well stocked :)

    The site grounds are very pleasant and clean, the local area includes some great walks if you like that sort of thing.

    The kids will love it, practice your table tennis before you go.
