The bottom lake

General

  • Laidback site centred around a couple of well-stocked fishing lakes
  • A five-minute drive from Montendre and half an hour from Cognac
  • Swimming pools, bar, kids’ play area and plenty of green space

Cyclist, walker, angler or dog owner? Whether you’re one or all of the above, Twin Lakes France, a relaxed site set in the countryside with a couple of catch-and-release fishing lakes (PS: chances to angle for carp and roach are included in the price), is a friendly bolthole in the Charente-Maritime.​​

If you’d rather take to the water than rest beside it with a rod, the park also has swimming pools for a spot of submerging and a bar with a view of the lakes for putting your feet up while sipping a cold beer (or three).

When thoughts turn to getting out and about, Twin Lakes is close to many pictureworthy French villages hosting authentic markets, and cycling and walking paths are easily accessible. It’s just over a five-minute from Montendre – stop here for a supermarket – and half an hour from tasting sessions in the liquor houses of Cognac.

Back on site after a bit of booze, there’s ample green space next to the lakes for you to spread out on while the dog snuffles about and the sprogs take on the play area. Events are organised through the year, including weekly trivia nights and bingo, and mornings are given a boost with bread delivery from a local bakery (during high season).

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/06 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Hi Lesley.
Thank you for your comment. We have plans in place to update our electrics on site over the next coming year to accommodate more camping.
You may not have seen but we also have a brand new play area for children in the bar area for them to play safely in and we have a children’s swimming pool.

Thank you for choosing Twin Lakes and we hope to see you again soon.

Directions


Local attractions

Make your way to the outskirts of Montendre, your local town while at this park, to meander around the Mysterra maze set in woodland (10 minutes’ drive) or roam around the Baron Desqueyroux Lake.

Set foot in the centre for a nosey at the castle, then head on a jaunt to Jonzac (20 minutes). This pretty little town is home to the geothermally heated Les Antilles de Jonzac waterpark – visit for dips in the lagoon and wave pools or to bask in the bubbles of the Jacuzzi.

To offset all this rather indulgent R&R, channel your inner high roller in the casino or leave town for tasting sessions in a Gironde estuary vineyard like the Maison de la Vigne et des Saveurs in Archiac. Cognac (30 minutes) and its surrounds also have brandy-production places open to the public if you’d like to learn more about this famed area’s alcohol-making heritage.

If it’s not a hol without a walk on the beach, bound over to the seaside resort of Talmont-sur-Gironde (55 minutes) or roam to Royan at the mouth of the Gironde estuary (an hour and five minutes). Back inland for more tipple tasting, Bordeaux and local wine villages like Saint-Émilion are around an hour’s drive.
