Prepare your paddling arm: Camping l'Île Cariot is in the Marais Poitevin, the second biggest wetland in western France: here you can/certainly should take a canoe out, or a kayak, or perhaps just relinquish the paddle and allow yourself to drift dreamily down its waters on a guided flat-bottomed boat…
Camping l'Île Cariot is a friendly and easy-going site, in a peaceful place about 20 kilometres from the beaches and watersports of the Atlantic coast, and 40 minutes' drive from the smashing port city of La Rochelle. Countryside and coast activities like fishing, hiking, riverside cycling and birdwatching are all around in the surrounding area.
Among the many facilities on site are a heated pool with a shallow pool for kids (open from June to September), a food shop, a playground, a pétanque court, a TV room and a restaurant. Bike hire and fishing are both available on site.
The site also has shower and toilet blocks, disabled facilities and a launderette. Free wifi is available.
Open from 01/04/2017 to 30/09/2017

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 15/06 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Party: 2 adults
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.

Coming from the north on the A83 come off at Exit 7 signposted La Rochelle, Ste Hermine, Luçon. Continue on D137 following the direction of La Rochelle. Cross Saint-Jean-de-Beugné, Sainte-Gemme-la-Plaine, Moreilles and just before leaving Chaillé-les-Marais, turn to the left and follow the sign "stade municipal". The campsite l'Île Cariot is on your right just after the stadium.
Coming from La Rochelle, on the ring road take the exit signposted La Roche-sur-Yon, Nantes. At the roundabout, take the second exit and continue on N137. Go through Le Raguenaud, Marans and continue on the D137. Just arriving in Chaillé-les-Marais, turn right to the first road after the grocery shop. The campsite l'Île Cariot is on your right.
Whether your tastes are ticked by a peaceful stroll along country lanes, a whirl around lively La Rochelle, gently stalking local wildlife or basking on the beaches of the southern Vendée, Camping l'Île Cariot is well placed for weeks' worth of active and chilled out days. The famed old abbey buildings of Maillezais, Nieul sur l’Autise and Saint Michel en l’Herm are also within easy reach.
Boats of all sorts should be investigated around here too, first up with a canal trip along the rivers of the Marais Poitevin, then with a lazy afternoon being rowed around the Venise Verte, the marshland crisscrossed with teeny canals. Or take the binoculars to the wetlands of La Baie de l’Aiguillon Natural Park, home and migratory stopoff to thousands of wading birds and waterfowl.
Just along the coast, have city days out at Fontenay le Comte and La Rochelle.
