||I am writing to say how much my family enjoyed our stay at Le Chaponnet. The campsite was excellent and could not be faulted, the facilities were very good and the mobiles were excellent. All in all a very enjoyable experience as it was our first trip to France.Mr.H.C. We had a great holiday with Quest en France in Le Chaponnet especially with the wonderful weather. All the plans worked out well and we certainly enjoyed both the campsite and the area.Mr.L.K.
