Camping IíIles des Trois Rois, F 27700 Les Andelys, Tel 0232542379  

To Find Site:- From N154 exit north of Evreux onto D316 signed for Gaillon and Les Andelys. The D316 changes to the D313 on the approach to Les Andelys. As you enter Les Andelys there is a roundabout. The site can be accessed either directly off this roundabout or by doubling back on yourself and taking first right to campsite. It is well signed.

This campsite has a lovely situation right on the banks of the River Seine and overlooked by the ruins of Chateau Gaillard. Depending on how busy the site is they try and allocate the riverside pitches to those staying longer than just over night. It is a site of two halves! The many seasonal pitches are at the far end of the site and separate from the 100 or so touring pitches which are nearer to reception. Pitch size varies but most are more than generous and larger outfits should not experience any problems. Pitches are individually hedged and most are longer than they are wide. Even in late September the grass was green and in excellent condition. In the touring section electric points are via CEE17 blue connectors and the supply rated at 6amps. Water points are few and far between although you do have the option of getting water at the two toilet blocks. The only grey water waste is at the chemical disposal points or the motorhome service point. Both toilet blocks in the touring area are of the same vintage and in need of a refurbishment and modernisation. One of the menís containing a mix of Turkish and pedestal non-seated toilets, although paper is provided. There are only two pedestal toilets for men  in total so I would imagine they struggle to cope when the site is busy. The ladies are better catered for. For late stayers they close the second block on 1st October and turn off the site taps! There is a small playground for younger children plus a volley ball and Boules court. The site has a small bar/snack restaurant with a terrace overlooking a small swimming pool. There is site wide WiFi and time may be purchased online but it is fairly expensive. During the low season the site accepts the ACSI Card. Date of visit late September 2012.

This site is used a lot for overnight stays but a longer stay is well worth while even if you just sit on the river bank watching the river traffic. Les Andelys is within walking distance of the site but is a fairly long trek for those not fully fit. There is also the option to cycle into the centre. Nearer to the site is Petit Andelys which is right on the river with several restaurants. The town has quite a large market on a Saturday which is worth a look.  Chateau Gaillard can be visited on foot or by car. For those going by car it is still a trek to actually get to the ruined Castle.
