We've had 2 amazing holidays at Fournil and we're going back next year. The site has a river flowing through it and a lake both are great for fishing, the pool is a great attraction as-well. The squirrel accommodation is great value for money and is well equipped. If you're looking for a relaxing peaceful holiday in beautiful surrounding then Fournil is the place to go.
