La Coccinelle, Blot l’Église, France

A member of the ACSI discount scheme. 

This site comes with really good reviews. Which we always flick through before attending any site. One review stated that one of the approach roads was a little hairy. So, as the Satnav took us nearer we were ready for it. The road had a few tight bends and a couple of switchbacks but nothing that unnerved us. Driving through the village, Blot l’Église, was a little narrow in places, but again manageable with our 7m caravan. 

Run by a Dutch couple, Fred and Ria, the site isn’t very big and welcomes tents, tourers and motorhomes. We are walked onto site by Ria, and shown the facilities then onto choose a pitch. Pitches are spacious, grass and separated for privacy by beech hedging. There are a few small static caravans dotted about the place for hire, all seemingly unoccupied during our stay. 

A swimming pool and play area stands to the side of the site. The pool, alas, was empty during our stay.  Plans for it to open mid June. There is also a small playing field to the side of the play area. A tennis court and climbing wall for the kids are located behind reception. With a table tennis table to the side of the tennis court. 

Facilities are communal, a dishwashing sink area and laundry facilities are available at a cost of €6. Wifi is free with strong signals across the site. The best wifi that we have had on the whole 7 week trip. A small restaurant opens six days of the week for a few hours in the evenings, serving pizza on a Wednesday. We didn’t get chance to try out their food sadly. A small library for borrowing or swapping magazines and books is located in a covered area near the toilet block. Dogs are welcome on site and must be kept on a lead. There is no dog walking area but you are able to take advantage of the local walking routes close by.  

Within walking distance of the village where there is a local store, that sells everything, a bit of an Aladdin’s cave, a bakers and a Huilerie, that sells local oils, soap, beer and other products. 

We paid €25 for two nights for two people including visitors tax.
