General Description:-
This is a well run popular site with, when we arrived, virtually all pitches occupied by “snow birds”.

Everything on the site is kept in tip top condition and despite all but us and one other being Dutch or German we were presented on arrival with a thick regional booklet printed in English.

Toilets and Showers:-
There are several facilities blocks on the site and all modern and kept in spotless condition. The block nearest us has all the requirements but the next along has no hand dryer in the gents toilets. The toilets although as good as any are are sadly inadequate at times of high need.

There is a laundry, rather expensive at €6.50 for what is a small machine.

The restaurant looked quite good but we didn’t use it

It would seem from the above that this is an ideal site that should come highly recommended. It should but it doesn’t. The site is in the form of a big rectangle with 11 rows of caravans/motorhomes and one of static caravans with about as much ambiance as a carpark. It is not helped by the fact that Maastricht Airport is less than 5km (3 ml) to the north and the site is directly under the take off flight path, still Stansted it is not and only a few planes per day seem to take off, sadly there is one at 21:45 and, at weekends another at 21.50 and yet a third.

We stayed here for 14 nights getting (as part of the ACSI deal) two free thus reducing the price per night from the standard ACSI rate of €17.00 per night to €14.57 plus tourist tax of a whopping €2.40 per person per night.
