Spacious pitches

General

  • Small farm site in a quiet walkers’ paradise with a large fishing lake
  • A 15-minute drive from Bourbon-l'Archambault and 35 from Moulins
  • Cycle hire, pool, pétanque, tennis, games room, TV room and wifi

Find your way to the fab Le Coeur Du Moulin for a brill break close to the geographic centre of France. This top-notch place is set around the ruins of an 18th-century watermill on a vast fishing lake, so it’s very much easy on the eye.

The surrounding area is also scenic – head out on the nearby walking paths and country roads to get a load of the landscape before retreating to the park for a splash about in the pool. Follow up a dip with a glass of wine in the large, green garden and perhaps a bit of grub grilled on the barbecue.

For more meal options, make your way to nearby settlements in the Allier department. The region is scattered with plenty of pretty villages, flea markets and cheese farms, as well as a whopping 500 castles. It’s also home to the Saint Pourçain wine region – so there’s no excuse not to schedule a tasting at a vineyard.

Bring a bottle of vin back to the park to stuff in your suitcase as a souvenir, then expend any energy you've got left during a session in the games room, on the tennis courts or at the pétanque pitch. Fishing’s also fantastic at the lake and bikes are available to hire on site for riding off into the countryside.

Once you’re back again and dusk starts setting in, don’t forget to look up at the night’s sky. Because of the lack of light pollution in the area, the Milky Way sparkles overhead on clear evenings.

Please note

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 30/06 and 10/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Directions


Local attractions

To learn about local history, visit Bourbon-l'Archambault (15 minutes’ drive), which served as the capital of the Dukes of Bourbon in the 15th century. The towering Château de Bourbon L'Archambault is a highlight here, and it’s also worth making your way to Moulins (35 minutes) – another spot in which the duchy based itself – to wander around the old town's cobblestoned streets and timber-framed houses.

Once you’ve satisfied any curiosities you have about the Allier area’s past, head for the Plan d'eau de Vieure swimming lake for a dip or to rent a canoe. If the kids are with you, schedule in a day out at one of three theme parks in the region: Le Pal (an hour), Vulcania or PALEOPOLIS (both an hour and 20 minutes).

If you’re happy to travel a little further from the site for a trip to some striking old towns, head to the famed Clermont-Ferrand, Vichy or Bourges, all of which are also under an hour and 20 minutes away.
