We chose this location as it was fairly central to our travels, based out in the rural countryside rather than in a large city or town, and kept costs down so that we could maximise our spend on other activities we had planned across ten days in Loire Valley (including Le Mans 24hrs). We booked a package deal through Brittany Ferries for ferries and accommodation and got an incredibly good value holiday with their January discounts.
From the outset we had low to medium expectations, and as such the resort delivered for us based on where we set out!
We're used to staying in better accommodation than this, it's very functional, utilitarian, but if you want somewhere to rest your head between busy days it's actually a fairly cost effective way to plan your holiday. The only serious disappointment for us that the advertised wi-fi (signal) is only available at the main reception building so you can't get it in your rooms.
> Rooms are reasonably sized, secure with plenty of storage space
> The site is kept clean and presentable
> The health centre has a reasonable pool
> There is a decent sized fridge
> Shower rooms are access friendly for people with disabilities
> Rooms have their own outdoor patio with furniture / umbrellas which are secluded in some part by planting
> Site is peaceful - no rowdy bars / discos / noise at nights (demographic is quite senior)
> Can't park near your room - shared carp park at top of site)
> No access to wifi in rooms
> Cooking facility is basically a microwave / grill which makes cooking anything interesting a challenge
> If you don't tidy and CLEAN your room there is additional charges post leaving
> TV has no UK speaking channels that we could find
> Beds are slightly 'old skool', so wear yourself out in the day.
Our initial impression was slightly disappointed, but once we'd been out to Carrefour, bought some food / drink and spread ourselves out we just acclimatised and got on with it. If you arrive with high expectations you may be disappointed, but if you take it on face value its fine.
Staff are quite helpful, and the rural location whilst initially hard to find (due to a few one way streets!) is peaceful and picturesque (and only a short drive from the old town - 1.5 miles / 10 minute walk). Be warned if you walk into Azay it's a very steep walk back!!
