Camping La Fountaine des Clercs, 1 Rue
de L’Eglise, 62170 Montreuil-sur-Mer, Tel 0321060728,
To Find Site:- From north or south on the D901 (formally the N1)
take the D349 towards site and follow signs. (Do not enter the
walled town.) The final approach is quite narrow.
Camping la Fontaine des Clercs is set out in terraces directly under
the walls of the town on Montreuil. This site is open all year.
There are about 76 pitches on a mix of grass and hard standing. They
vary in size from small for tents to quite generous for caravans and
many sizes in between. There are two sections of hard standing
pitches either side of the Reception building with level access all
other pitches are of quite steep terraces working their way up from
Reception to the fortified walls of the town. Some of the pitches
are taken up with permanent caravans. Electric points are rated at
10amps and have CEE17 European blue connectors. On some pitches it
may be necessary to run your electric lead across a site road. Water
points are dotted around the site. There are two toilet blocks. The
one next to Reception is adequate and clean with seatless toilets
and no paper provided, however it could do with a makeover to bring
it up-to-date. There is no onsite shop but the town is only a
relatively short walk away. Reception has limited opening hours and
the form seems to be to select a pitch and go back later to book in.
The site has free WiFi, we were able to pick it up in the van but we
were near reception. Cost per night during our visit for two persons
and electricity was €18 a night. Date of visit early October 2010.
The delightful walled town of Montreuil is a few minutes walk from
the campsite and is well worth a visit. The coast is not far away
either. For shopping there is a supermarket on the ring road and of
course any number of individual shops in the town.
