Camping les Cochards, 1 Rue du Camping, 41110 Seigy, St Aignan, Tel 0254751559
To find site:- The campsite is on the south bank of the River Cher and has direct access off the D17 about a kilometre east of St Aignan.
Camping les Cochards has the look and feel of a large municipal campsite located on the banks of the River Cher and not far from the attractive town of St Aignan. This site is open until mid October so handy for those taking late holidays. The couple that run the site seem very pleasant, Madam speaks very good English. There are around 125 touring pitches which are on grass and quite generous in size and well shaded. In some places you might need a long lead to reach the electric points which are rated as 5 amps and have continental connectors. Best to check for reverse polarity. Water points are dotted around the campsite but a fair way from some pitches. Their are several toilet blocks around the site which whilst not being the most modern are of a good standard with seated toilets and paper provided. There is a small swimming pool. Children are quite well catered for with play equipment, pitch and putt golf and a large playing field across the access road to the site. In the main season the site does snacks and takeaway rather than having a full sit down restaurant. Next to reception is a small shop selling essential and next to that a TV room. The site has WiFi available at reasonable prices and although listed as being available at reception a good signal can be picked within about 100 metres further out. Date of visit early October 2009
The small town of St Aignan is only a short distance from the campsite. There are lots of opportunities to explore the valleys of the Cher and Loire and all their associations with history. If you are interested in waterways there are canals in the area to be explored. For shopping there is a Super U a couple of miles from the site on the outskirts of St Aignan.
