Booked this campsite for 8 of our family as we were going to Disneyland Paris and wanted to keep the cost of our trip down but we were also wanting somewhere close as not have to travel too far each day as well.Le Chene Gris was perfect! Set in a lovely wooded area,so quiet and peaceful we wished we had been able to spend more time at the campsite but the trip was mainly about Disneyland.It was about a 20-25 minute drive away and mainly through small winding roads through the woodland.We found the campsite to be quite empty but the pool/pools area to be just about right in terms of people and space to be able to swim so if in the summer it was full the pool area would be far too small to cope.We arrived at the campsite about 1pm and had to wait until the reception opened at 3pm to check in which was a real pain as we had shopped on the way and had bags of food(chicken etc.) and it was baking hot.Luckily they allowed us to store it in the fridge in their main kitchen for a couple of hours so all was not lost.So beware of the check in times but they are stated in the booking terms to be fair to the campsite.My only other niggle was that there are 2 toilets next to the pool but no soap/basin to wash your hands after which to me was not acceptable.A nice bar and restaurant area overlooks the pool area and the pizzas we had were very good.We had emailed twice to have our 2 static homes close together to which we never received a reply and when we got there they were apart, we complained and as there was 1 empty next to one of ours we finally got the 2 together.(why does everything have to be such hard work?).The wifi was free when we went but has to be paid for in high season.The toilet/shower blocks were spotless on the 1 time that i used them and looked very new.The shop was handy to have but quite pricey so i would recommend the intermarche which is a five minute drive from the campsite.On the whole i would highly recommend this campsite for trips to Disney but not just to stay at the campsite in high season if you are not going to Disney..I would also say it is better for people with younger children and not older teenagers.I would definitely use this campsite again if going to Disney.
Many Thanks Le Chene Gris.
