Swimming pool

General

  • Lakeside site in a national forest, a kilometre from a big sandy beach
  • Heated pool with deckchairs alongside; watersports centre next door
  • Snack wagon, bike hire, playground and grocery shop

Settle down in Sarthe for a lakeside site in a national forest at Camping Lac de Sillé, near Sillé-le-Guillaume about half an hour from Le Mans: whether it's forest hikes or watery sports you're after, you'll access outdoorsy activities of all sorts from here.

The woodland around the site is part of the national forest of Sillé, covering over 3,350 hectares of green and peaceful land popular for hiking, mountain biking, climbing, ziplining and fishing. A leisure and watersports centre is right next door for arranging rafting, canoeing, windsurfing and sailing.

Start off with an amble over to the friendly team at reception, for tourist info on the vast amount of stuff to see and do in the region. There are books on the area here too, as well as a free internet point and board games for peaceful afternoons. Bikes can be hired next to reception to take out on the lakeside paths or on the trails further into the forest.

Next? The heated pool, perhaps, with deckchairs and parasols available alongside, and then perhaps a stroll to the snack wagon for a bite to eat on its terrace or to take away to a quiet spot by the lake...? Volleyball, table tennis, table football and pétanque are also around to try; there's a sandy playground to occupy the kids, and an entertainment and activities programme runs in July and August with archery, forest pony trekking, sports tournaments and a kids' club on weekday mornings.

Concerts, theatre, open-air cinema and themed dinners are held on summer evenings.

A lovely family friendly, clean and relaxed site 24/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    The central hub was great with a lovely swimming pool, food truck with terrace area and a games and Wi-Fi area. Also table tennis, football, badminton and a load of games to play.
    The location is fab with easy access to the lake beach area and the surrounding walking and mountain biking trails.
    The toilets and showers were good and were kept well cleaned and also had a useful freezer for ice packs.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches were not well marked out so we had some difficulty in working out where to set up with the other people already set up.

    Only stayed here one night on the way home but we were really impressed and would happily have stayed for more. Seems to be a site perfect for families with young children (suitable small pool, playground, kids activities etc - our kids loved our short stay) set in lovely location in woods by edge of lake. Facilities clean. Really lovely site.

    Disliked: 

    Make sure you have extension if you have electric hook up, some of the pitches seemed quite far away.
    Overheard a teenager complaining about slow wifi (!) but didn't really bother us (and they had a computer with internet access available in the reception).

    The site is excellent, with a medium size pool, a nice playground and an area with games and clean showers and toilets. Washing machines available (which we didn't use) and a freezer for ice pads. The camping has beautiful trees and green/wild areas so the feeling it is very much as being in a forest. Two amazing lakes next to the site and great green lanes for walks or cycling. One of the lakes has a beach ten at minutes ride with facilities such as restaurants, cafes, ice creams and churros. As well as lifeguards and toilets/ showers. A small village within 20 mins ride has a couple of supermarkets, Bar, etc. The staff is friendly and there is an entertainer for children a couple of hours a day, Pizza, hot dogs and chips. The weather was great and the site very tranquil apart from one night when a group close to us was celebrating something

    Disliked: 

    When we arrived they couldn't find our booking so we had to stay at reception for a while. They finally gave us a pitch and the next day told us everything was sorted. I don't know if it was their fault or Pitchup, in any case, they solve the situation reasonably well. A few times there was no toilet paper but a bit later was solved. So a minor thing if you have a spare one. Wifi only in the reception area, the first night on site was not available.

    A great site, well maintained site that was perfectly laid out for families. The staff were great, very friendly and ensured the site was always very clean and tidy. A great range of activities for kids, lovely pizzas and crepes available from the snack wagon and a lovely bar area for socialising. The lake was accessible within a 5 minute walk from our pitch and the beach was about a 20 minute stroll away. Overall we had a wonderful, relaxing family holiday on this site. We stayed for 11 nights and only went off site twice for days out. We would highly recommend it.

    The lake is a beautiful 15 minute walk away, pitches very good size, clean facilities and excellent staff.

    Disliked: 

    Possibly electric points could be a bit far away from pitches and are shared. So make sure to have a 25/30m, we did but noticed this with other campers.

Directions


Local attractions

You don't have to go far to access spectacular Pays de la Loire forest, countryside and beach days from the site, or to drive far to get to famed regional highlights like Fresnay-sur-Sarthe and department capital Le Mans.

The red town of Le Mans is a green space too – famed as the second greenest in France, in fact – so seek out some garden time after a stroll around the Old Town and the Roman walls. Among its many green areas are the Jardins Pierre de Ronsard, the Arche de la Nature and the Jardins des Plantes, covering five hectares.

Getting into the countryside, trek along to the Alpes Mancelles and the Normandie-Maine Regional Natural Park, a land of moorland and forest, orchards and rapidly flowing rivers: look out for deer, rabbits, hares and wild boar on your scenic travels.
