Camping de L'Hippodrome: Chalet exterior with decking

General

  • Well-kept grass pitches by the Sarthe river, in the Pays de la Loire
  • A five-minute walk to Sablé-sur-Sarthe and 45 minutes’ drive to Angers
  • Family site with pools, shop, entertainment and sports facilities

Dotted by mature trees and bordering the Sarthe river, Camping de L’Hippodrome is set on three hectares of peaceful grounds. This pleasant spot is really well set up for family breaks, offering a baby-changing area, drying room and children’s playground with swings and ping-pong, as well as tennis courts and a TV room for older kids.

Life centres around the two pools (one of which is a paddling pool for the kids) during the day, and at night in high season there’s regular entertainment to keep everyone happy – pétanque tournaments, barbecue nights and even karaoke, if you’re feeling in good voice.

You can try fishing on the river, and there’s easy access for boats too, as well as plenty of options for active types within half an hour’s drive, including golfing, cycling and horse riding. The site is near the handsome town of Sablé-sur-Sarthe too, with a riverside path leading you right into the centre in a few minutes (on foot or by bike) to have a nosey around its castle and clutch of museums.

With neat hedges providing privacy at all the pitches, a round-up of amenities includes two smart shower blocks with full disabled access, and a handy little store (May to September) where you can pick up your daily baguette as well as local produce (like the renowned Petits Sablés shortbread) and drinks.

If you’ve forgotten something (hairdryers, iron or bedding), chances are Reception will be able to help, and staff there can also fill you in on day trip information and bike hire.

Local attractions

There’s nothing like messing about on the river, and you can hire canoes, paddleboards and pedalos on the waterside to potter down the Sarthe, or stroll down to the quay for organised cruises past the grand 18th-century castle in Sablé-sur-Sarthe (five minutes’ walk).

There’s masses for culture vultures too, with exhibitions on monastic life at Abbaye Saint-Pierre de Solesmes (10 minutes’ drive), while the medieval village of Asnières-sur-Vègre (20 minutes) is known for the frescoes in St. Hilary Church. Le Mans (an hour) mixes up Roman and Renaissance architecture, and in Angers (45 minutes) you can explore castles, museums and botanical gardens.

Treat the kids to sea lion shows at Zoo de la Flèche (40 minutes), or take them deep underground to see prehistoric remains in the Valley of the Caves of Saulges (30 minutes). And who could resist the chance to dig into regional shortbread after a tour of one of Sablé-sur-Sarthe’s famous biscuit manufacturers?
