To Find Site:- Leave A75 south of Clermont Ferrand at junction 12. Turn sharp left as you exit slip road and continue to roundabout where you take the first exit. Follow signs to campsite. (route can be seen on first picture below)

This is a handy stop over site close to the A75. It could also be used for a longer stay to explore the area. There are 133 grass pitches  all of a good size, some verging on the generous which are allocated on arrival although there is flexibility if you wish to change. They are mainly individually hedged but some are marked out as pairs of pitches. Road access around the site is good. Ground conditions are quite firm but after heavy rain we did get some water build up on the site roads. Electric points are rated at a useful 10 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Water points are also close to each pitch and could be connected  to units with if you have your own hose. There are a couple of toilet blocks of various vintages with seated toilets and paper provided. The older block is in need of an upgrade but there is a newer block further into the sites which is more modern. There is a Salle de Jeux which has a TV and Pool tables. There is a play area for smaller children and a kick about field for older ones. Like a lot of Municipal campsites there is an adjacent sports complex so there will be a degree of noise at certain times. There will also be some background noise from the A75 on the furthest pitches.  The site offers free WiFi but this is only within a hundred metres of the Salle de Jeux. Every morning a bread van calls in at reception. Not the cheapest Municipal campsite, and not in any of the discount schemes,  but in a very convenient position.

For shopping and fuel there is a large supermarket on the opposite side of the A75. If you get a town plan from reception it shows how you can walk to it but it is a fair way unless you are reasonable fit, likewise it also shows how to get to the town of Issoire. There is a Leisure centre near the entrance and several fast food style restaurants also nearby. Just outside the entrance is a lake and a river offering walking opportunities.
