The stunning four-hectare lake

General

  • Scenic site on edge of a large lake in the Charente countryside
  • A 300-metre stroll from Bignac and easy driving access to the A10
  • Large pool, sports courts, wifi, play area, restaurant and fishing

Aimed at families and couples looking for a quiet and laidback holiday but with plenty of services and entertainment in high season, Camping Marco de Bignac really does have the best of both worlds... Set over nine hectares and with a spectacular four-hectare lake, this site’s most definitely a sizeable and scenic place for Charente countryside stays.

As well as longer breaks in the second-sunniest part of France, this park in the Poitou-Charentes (Nouvelle-Aquitaine) region to the country’s west is also well placed for stopovers to Spain or Portugal. It has easy access to the A10 and the toll-free N10 to get to and from ports as well as regional highlights like Angoulême, half an hour’s drive to the south, and Cognac, 45 minutes west.

When you’re not perusing the paper museum and Saint-Pierre cathedral in the former town or sipping on the famed alcohol in the latter, plenty of entertainment’s on hand at the site. Sporty sorts might like to get active in the big pool or on the tennis, badminton and pétanque courts, while angling aficionados can get busy fishing on the lake.

If you didn’t catch a creature for supper, the popular restaurant at the park might lure you in… Breakfast’s just as easily organised as dinner thanks to the daily bread and pastries delivery, plus a supermarket is just outside the local commune of Bignac about 300 metres away.

Please note

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 20/06 and 05/09 (subject to weather conditions).

    What a lovely warm welcome from Sarah & Family when we arrived, we were shown to a large Motorhome pitch with plenty of space. Lovely dog walk round the fishing lake. The pool was lovely and much needed as temperatures were in the high 30’s. Had a lovely 3 course meal in the restaurant, enjoyed it that much we went back the next night, the salmon with dauphinois potatoes were delicious!! The toilets and showers clean and well kept. Didn’t use Wi-Fi. All staff were following Covid-19 regulations, from masks, signage,disinfectant, to table distancing. Had a lovely time laughing & chatting with all the family, they couldn’t have been more helpful & friendly,
    Thank you Sarah and all the family we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you and will definitely return.

    This is our second stay here and everything was exactly as we remembered. The family who own the site are very friendly and will help all they can. The site is clean and very well kept with large pitches situated beside the lake.

    There is a small bar and bistro serving great food which is really useful as there are no other restaurants within walking distance.

    Toilet block and washing up areas clean and well maintained.

    We will definitely be back next time we are travelling through France

    Peaceful ( in daytime) beautiful site. Welcoming staff

    Disliked: 

    All facilities like bar, bikehire etc closed . Not that surprising but therefore seemed a bit expensive. Rather unfortunately there was some sort of motorbike rally going through village that night which was noisy up to 11pm

From the manager...

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
The washrooms cope perfectly well during peak season. There are 2 blocks which in total have 10 showers, 7 private washrooms, 10 toilets, a family bathroom, an accessible bathroom and clothes and dish washing areas. In October the campsite is generally quiet, it is always worth contacting campsites direct as we do discounts for single travelers, therefore it would have been better value for you.
We were very lucky to have the bike rally for the first time this year, we weren't warned at all about the event or the noise but how exciting for a small village. We're glad that when you left you said that it hadn't actually disturbed you. I'm very glad that you would recommend our campsite and return, we look forward to seeing you again maybe.
Many Thanks

Sara (Owner)

Directions


Local attractions

Just like the rest of France, Charente’s no stranger to a château – and the handsome one at Gourville is just 10 minutes’ drive from this park. An even grander castle’s at La Rochefoucauld (35 minutes away), with a staircase said to be designed by Leonardo da Vinci.

See more stately buildings at Jarnac (30 minutes), including a museum housed in a former wine storehouse and the Courvoisier centre dedicated to the history and production of Cognac, or head 45 minutes away from the park to the city of Cognac itself for yet another château and pretty public gardens. Into historical distilleries? Tours can be taken here at the grand riverside complexes of Hennessy and Remy Martin.

If you’re thinking of scheduling in swimming and boating off the lakeside beaches of Saint-Yrieix lake (15 minutes’ drive), it might be best to do these before a tasting – especially if you’re planning on cycling here on a bike hired and delivered to the park…
