Twin Lakes France: One of the lakes

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).

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.

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.

Please be aware, although the site is open all year, there will be maintenance carried out between November and April. In these months the bar is only open at certain times and there is no daily bread delivery. Water facilities are limited, and only one shower and toilet block will be open.

    We are very impressed by this place and the hospitality of its owners. There was a hail storm during our stay which was pretty scary under the tent. To keep us safe during the night, the owner offered us a drink and a stay in one of his cabins, all free of charge! We also had some nice conversations and all the guests were friendly. It kind of felt like one big family. The facilities were clean, and the pool was nice too. The restaurant serves a variety of foods and drinks. The surrounding lakes are beautiful.

From the manager...

Thank you for leaving a review.

We are very disappointed and a little surprised that you gave us low scores in some areas but we appreciate the feedback.

We are a rural campsite in the countryside which many of our customers enjoy.

The day before you arrived this area of France experienced the worst storm in over 10 years. As such on the day you arrived we was repairing damage and cleaning away debris, we pride ourselves on ensuring the site is clean and tidy but accept due to the storm on this occasion the cleanliness might not have been up to the normal 5 star standard that most of our other customers rate us.

We believe we are good value for money compared to other sites in the area. The cost of your pitch includes access to the swimming pools and the use of the fishing lakes. We have a very reasonable priced bar and restaurant with our drink prices lower than any other bar in the area.

Although there was another bad storm the night you stayed I would like to understand further if possible which pitch you was on as I wasn't aware that any pitch was left underwater.

I'm not really sure why you disliked the chemical toilet facility as its pretty normal..... If you could feedback further on this that would be much appreciated,

In terms of the weather, that's out of our hands I'm afraid.

We are a small family run business and we listen to all feedback in order to help us improve, we are always on hand to help day or night, If your stay was not up to expectations it would have been nice for you to raise this at the time rather than just writing a review, that way we could have tried to put the problem right or compensate you in someway.

Kind Regards

    The staff were fantastic .Very helpful always there to lend a hand.
    The pitches were plenty big enough and very private.
    The bar and food were excellent with plenty of choices
    Pool kept very clean and tidy
    Toilets and showers to die for (as much hot water as you wanted)
    My husband loved the fishing lakes (i think he would have stayed there forever)
    All in all a fab campsite with great amenities and plenty of places to visit
    Will definitely be back

  • La Faïencerie, Montendre, Charente-Maritime, France, 17130
  • Timezone Europe/Paris CEST (GMT+02:00)   GPS 45.2990°N 0.4358°W

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.
