Relaxed & beautiful
Review of La Forêt du Morvan
Jun 1, 2015, by vaughanb1976
I have recently returned from a one week stay here and my family loved it. It is beautifully situated with most of the pitches set in a spacious flat, mown, individual areas enclosed by natural shrubs, trees and grasses and set into the side of a hill looking down a partially wooded valley. There is an abundance of local wildlife as well as an ever escaping donkey, a goat, a puppy, wandering rabbits and a gang of chickens with a real taste for baguettes.
The bathroom facilities were partitioned rooms in a barn with tiled floors and containing a shower, toilet and sink area and were available to hire privately although it is worth considering if there is any point out of season as in the week I was there I never encountered anyone else in the bathrooms at the same time.
The same barn housed the washing up sinks and fridges which all seemed fine and in good order.
It is a fantastic site for children with another adjacent barn full of kids bikes and tricycles, a table tennis table or two, a gymnastic crash mat, a basket ball ring and a big slide as well as loads of trees, car free green space and a pond full of salamanders ( or newts I couldn't decide) and with a trampoline set in to the floor next to it. There is loads for them to do but it doesn't seem too managed or ordered which I think adds to the charm.
The family that own it are very helpful and friendly and seem to work their socks off, even the children help out, with the young lady who is the owner's daughter offering to give up her free time to do arts and crafts with my 4 year old. A big sacrifice indeed for a teenager !
I don't have any criticisms of the site and can only say that if manicured lawns, a disco, Jazzercise classes and a well stocked on site Aldi are your thing then you will hate it, but if you like a chilled atmosphere, nature, views, the dawn chorus, talking to donkeys and value peace and quiet then you won't want to leave !
