- Holiday park in a lively seaside town
- Huge waterpark with several pools, spa bath, slides and fountains
- Nightly entertainment, restaurant and three kids' clubs
A French beach break? Le British, le Irish and heaps more holidaymakers from Europe and beyond find big and lively Les Charmettes a tiptop option for sunny stays: it's the Siblu group's flagship park with first-rate facilities and services in the busy seaside town of Charente Maritime.
There's so much to do here that you'll want to alternate days on the nearby Atlantic beaches with long days whirling around or unwinding on site, whether you fancy active days or lazing about. First up is the huge waterpark, with indoor pool and a spa bath, two outdoor pools, a paddling pool with nearby play area, giant waterslides, fountains and an aqua splash zone – just to get you started...
When (if?) that gets too much, ask the staff to book you a beauty treatment, or trot along to the gym for some activity indoors. Or you could join in the daily programme of activities for all tastes while the kids get stuck into the three kids' clubs: Bubbles (ages one to four), Pirates (ages five to nine) and Barracudas (ages ten to 14).
Accommodation here is in mobile homes, all with kitchens, terraces and private and hedged spaces alongside. Barbecues are allowed on site if you want to sort your own food and eat alfresco; if not, the Charmettes restaurant, pizzeria and creperie serves a wide variety of meals and drinks all day.
Also around – yes, yet more – is a swish indoor entertainment venue with summer events for all ages, including concerts, circus acts and magic shows.

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.
