General

  • Family-friendly site by a lake five minutes' drive from Brûlon
  • 40 minutes' drive from the motor circuit at Le Mans
  • Swimming pool, mini farm and lots of kids' summer activities

Keep the small sorts happy and the family hol’s a breeze – that’s the thinking at Sarthe site Le Septentrion, by a lovely lake and the Vègre river five minutes’ drive from Brûlon.

Clever types Dominique and Marie have accordingly stuffed their site full of things to delight les enfants (and hopefully, in turn, their grownup companions), including a mini farm, miniature golf, table tennis, a trampoline and a volleyball court. Splashing at the swimming pool and paddling pool can continue through high season whatever the weather, for they’ve got both heated waters and a natty cover that can be drawn when dark clouds threaten.

Quite possibly of equal interest to all ages are the kids’ activities that run through the summer – the nippers can get stuck into fun things like canoe trips, archery sessions and craft workshops while the grownups have a bit of free time to play pétanque or chill out with book in hand (or, just possibly, a glass of vino – you've earned it).

Even the eats have been cooked up with family harmony front of mind: the bar-restaurant menu features familiar faves (burgers, pizzas and the like) for the picky ones and a selection of local specialities for those with more adventurous tastes. There’s also a barbecue area for folks who fancy a bit of alfresco cooking; it’s free to use as long as you clean up when you're done.

    Beautiful location, relaxing and peaceful in the day, great covered pool area, lovely park for children.

    Disliked: 

    Terrible noise during the night sometimes until very late, we had problems with a large group of people drinking behind us, shouting, laughing til very late, also very loud music across the lake until very late, campsite not regulated as it should be so maybe encourages group of drinkers, not great for families. Shame, this spoilt what would have been a lovely holiday, very little we could do about it at the time as I don't speak French and no one there spoke any English so there was a language barrier. We did ask the group to keep the noise down and when I say noise, some nights I couldn't hear my husband talking to me who would be right next to me as the noise was so loud,kept my 3 children awake until sometimes 3am, we think some of these people actually worked at the campsite, when asked to be quieter we were rudely ignored. As we were staying 15 nights, this was a huge issue for us.

Local attractions

More evidence of a family-friendly setup is in the list of activities a mere toddle from the site. A few minutes’ stroll takes you to the river, where there’s a sandy beach area (and a lifeguard on duty in high season) and plenty of spots from which to dangle a fishing rod. A similar saunter leads to a lakeside activity centre that’s got fun times both water-based (sailing, canoeing, paddleboarding) and on dry land (paintballing, climbing, disc golf).

Getting around on two wheels is a good way to explore, and made easier by the presence of bikes to hire on site. Those who favour a bit more power to their vehicles may like to take a trip to the racing circuit at Le Mans, 40 minutes away and home to the famed 24-hour races.

For somewhat gentler days out, stick around in Le Mans to wander through its historic centre (time your visit for a summer evening when the landmarks are all lit up if poss). Château de Malicornes sur-Sarthe, the Mosaîque Garden and the Saulges caves are within a half-hour drive too; wilder times can be had meeting the beasts at Zoo de la Flèche, 45 minutes away.
