I am on Holiday in Les Alicourts Resort Pierrefitte-sur-Sauldre, France. This site is for Caravans, Tents and Chalets and is brilliant can recommend it to any one Swimming pools, Bar, Restaurant, Take Away, shops, Kids play area, fishing lake and swimming lake brilliant. It is situated in the Loire Region a very beautiful area and out of season it cost me £450 for 10 days including cost of Tunnel good value for money goes up to £1200 in high season not sure that is good value.
The Chalet we were in was small but comfortable for two of us but they certainly do not build these for people my size the toilet was as about the width of my shoulders, showers slightly bigger. The so called double bed was only big enough for me and the mattress was of poor quality which gave me aches and pains first thing in the morning all week.
Yet after saying that the region is quite beautiful with lots of lakes, chateaus and churches plenty of places to visit. What I found amazing was there is very little traffic and the roads are straight for miles in this region maybe someone can explain the history of that.
The towns and villages seem to have very few people milling about and their opening hours are like the UK was in the 1950’s. Shops do not open on a Monday, Supermarket open till 12.30 on a Sunday (that I think is a good idea) most shops, businesses seem to close for 1 to 2 hours at Dinner time and restaurants open 12 noon till 2pm and then in the evening. So a very much a cultural difference from the UK which makes the holiday more interesting as it seems the rest of the World is being homogenised
