- 18th-century forge among champagne vineyards
- Between two sandy beaches
- Trout fishing lake, indoor pool and bar-restaurant
A stay among the Champagne vineyards in the grounds of an 18th-century lakeside farmhouse, with access to the sandy beaches of Lac du Der Chantecoq and Château Cirey-sur-Blaise, anyone?
A full range of excellent on-site facilities await at this peaceful and well-appointed resort, first and secondly the heated indoor pool and large grassy sun terrace for splashing and lazing time in between sightseeing trips. Then there's the lakeside bar and restaurant, with big terrace overlooking the lake: here you'll be able to sample tasty regional dishes from set and à la carte menus, or order snacks to take away (during high season, the takeaway service extends to pizza delivery direct to your pitch).
You could continue your French food odyssey by sampling fine local wines and champagnes and the region's best cheeses out on the restaurant terrace too – but don't fill up too much, because Sainte-Marie staff say the tractor trips to the regular barbecues that take place at a friendly farm nearby are absolutely not to be missed.
After spending the morning on a gentle woodland walk while the kids are thoroughly entertained with archery, football and other outdoor games via the kids' club (aimed at ages four to 14), spend the afternoon on the multisports field competing in archery or pétanque tournaments. Fishing fans can also cast their line into the trout-filled fishing lake if they pick up a permit from the local off licence, and evenings are covered too, with live music nights and a campfire to sit around and tell tales.
Open from 20/04/2018 to 07/09/2018

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Do you like champagne? Course you do... and around here there's lashings of the bubbly stuff on offer: make plenty of time for investigating the local cellars and region's fizzy wine, and for trying regional charcuterie meats and artisan cheeses.
Get out and about on one of the site's recommended hiking or cycling trails – pick up info at reception and follow one of the many routes that begin from the grounds. Alternatively, the Château du Grand Jardin in nearby Joinville is just the job for a leisurely afternoon of strolling around historical landscaped gardens.
Lac du Der – Europe's largest artificial lake – lies less than an hour's drive from the site. There you can rent a boat to go fishing or birdwatching, or explore the 250 kilometres of marked walking and cycling trails around the water. If you fancy doing absolutely nothing, then just stick to sunning yourself for an afternoon on the lake's sandy beach.
