Given the uncertainly we are all facing we want to give our guests peace of mind when they book with us. We have abolished deposits for all touring emplacements. You can now book without any prepayment or cancellation fees. Deposits will continue to apply to accommodation but we will refund all monies paid if your stay is affected by COVID 19 lock-down or travel restrictions in your home country or in France.
Applicable to all new bookings made from 05/05/2020
Compte tenu de l'incertitude à laquelle nous faisons tous face, nous voulons donner à nos clients la tranquillité d'esprit quand ils réservent avec nous. Nous avons supprimé les acomptes pour tous les emplacements de passage. Vous pouvez maintenant réserver sans frais de prépaiement ou d'annulation. Les acomptes continueront de s'appliquer à l’hébergement (location chalet ou tente), mais nous rembourserons toutes les sommes payées si votre séjour est touché par le confinement du COVID 19 ou les restrictions de voyage dans votre pays d'origine ou en France.

2020 What a year! Thank you to all the lovely guests that stayed with us this season and to those of you who thought of us and sent us kind messages when we were closed. We are grateful to you all and really appreciate your continued support. Finally, a BIG thank you to the French Government who have bolstered the tourist industry during this difficult economic period.
We welcomed a lot of new guests fleeing from Spain at the beginning of the pandemic, unfortunately we were unable to remain open long enough to welcome everybody before we were locked down ourselves. We hope you all arrived home safely and will take the opportunity to visit us under better circumstances. We would love to meet you.
For those of you that postponed your vacation or event to 2021 or 2022, just drop us an email when you are ready, and we will amend your booking and send you an updated booking confirmation.
As usual the campsite will remain open over the winter with reduced facilities, welcoming guests mainly travelling to and from Spain. You must let us know you are coming as we only have a limited number of winter emplacements.
We are both looking forward to seeing you next year.

Whatever happens with BREXIT we are here for the long term and will continue to improve the site for the enjoyment and comfort of our guests.
See you next season

P.S. We are open all winter if you are passing through Le Mans.
Thank you for your continued support. We have had a fantastic year even though it started very wet leading to extraordinary floods in June (see flood photos in gallery); followed by a hot dry summer.
It was lovely meeting so many new guests and welcoming back so many familiar faces. The campsite is evolving and once again we thank you for taking such a positive interest in what we are doing. Again, a big big thank you to those of you who took the time to leave reviews.
Some of you may have noticed that we have changed the name of the site to ‘Camping Neuville’. We decided to change the name to reflect the strong affiliation we have with the village, Neuville-sur-Sarthe and to avoid confusion with other sites in France named Camping Le Vieux Moulin.
We will remain open over the winter to provide a safe haven for travellers heading south when the majority of campsites in Northern France remain closed.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy New Year and look forward to welcoming you to our campsite in 2019.
Finally a big thank you to Becky who tirelessly ironed all the accommodation bedding and weeded the flower borders in July/August. And of course Martyn’s parents who give up their time to help us each year and keep us stocked up with home cooked treats.

We would like to thank all our 2017 guests for their support during our first season. We have met some really lovely people from all walks of life from as far afield as South Africa and Australia. We have been blown away by the interest and encouragement we have received from so many of you and hope that you will return in the future to see the progress we have made. At the end of the season we will sit down and reflect on what went well and what we need to improve on. We already have an extensive plan of work that we want to complete before we open next year.
An extra big thank you to those of you that took the time to write a review and post photographs. We are already benefiting with an increase in enquiries from your recommendations. Our only fear is that your excellent reviews will raise expectations.
We frequently struggled to find a French campsite open outside of June, July and August. With this in mind we will open from all year and will continue to do this for at least 3 years to ascertain demand.
