Nest to the outdoor pool

General

  • Peaceful 45-hectare woodland site two kilometres from Brossac village
  • Four-hectare lake with beach for wakeboarding, fishing and swimming
  • Snack bar and restaurant with huge terrace overlooking the lake

There's a lovely lake at Camping Étang Vallier two kilometres from the Brossac in the south of the Charente department – and a splendid setting too, as the site is lushly laid out among a forest of oak, pine and chestnut trees.

This 45-hectare holiday village has its own four-hectare lake, where you can rent boats and try your hand at fishing, waterskiing and wakeboarding, or just lounge around and sunbathe on the sandy and roomy beach. Prefer to pedal? The site has bike hire and easy access to mountain bike circuits, a greenway and local looped trails: pick from nine loops of varying lengths and difficulties on the three circuits that lie nearby.

There’s plenty more here too, including a summer miniature golf course, a squash court, and beach activities arranged by the team in the summer season.

Eats are sorted at the snack bar and restaurant, which has a huge terrace overlooking the lake. The village a 20-minute walk away has two restaurants, bakeries, a butcher's, a mini market and a petrol station.

    Disliked: 

    Receptionist didn’t speak English and my french is very limited. Not really a reason to dislike more my fault than the campsite.

    Le lieu en bordure d'une petite station balnéaire.

    Disliked: 

    proximité de voisins slaves gênants, très bruyants et vulgaires. Rixes entre eux en pleine nuit au point de faire intervenir la gendarmerie.
    Les responsables du camping devraient à l'avenir contrôler davantage leurs locataires.
    Présence de légions de moustiques, prévoir citronnelle.

    Es war ein toller Aufenthalt für uns alle (Mama, Papa, 3 Kinder 8, 11, 14 und unseren kleinen Hund). Wir haben eine Woche in einem Mobilheim entspannt und es genossen. Es war sehr sauber im Haus, wie auch auf dem Campingplatz.
    Wir wurden sehr freundlich begrüßt und für alle Gäste gab es eine kleine Willkommensfeier (der Pineau ist übrigens sagenhaft, sehr zu empfehlen!!!) Es ist ein sehr höflicher und familiärer Campingplatz und man hat sich von Anfang an sehr wohl gefühlt, auch wenn wir nur etwas älteres Schulfranzösisch sprechen konnten haben sich alle Mühe gegeben uns zu verstehen :-).
    Wir machen Urlaub, um vom Alltag abzuschalten und auch frei von der Technologie zu sein. WLAN gibt es in dem Park, aber man muss schon nah an der Rezeption sein. Unsere Männer haben sich gemütlich am Sonntag an die Rezeption gesetzt und haben dort Formel 1 über Handy geschaut. Ich persönlich finde, dass dies im Urlaub auch voll und ganz reicht. Mehr WLAN braucht man nicht :-).
    In der Mitte des Campingparks haben sich täglich alle Kinder auf dem Spielplatz getroffen, haben dort gespielt und sind gemeinsam zum See gegangen.
    Der See ist übrigens ein traumhafter Ort, sehr sauberes Wasser und der Sonnenuntergang ist unvergesslich. Live Musik wurde am Clubhaus, direkt am Strand gespielt und sogar ein Konzert von Jive me hat auf einer größeren Bühne statt gefunden, es war großartig!
    Unsere Kinder liebten es die Eidechsen im Wald zu beobachten und wir Eltern haben die ruhige Zeit zum Entspannen genossen und haben nachts auf der Terasse der Eule gelauscht. Es ist eine tolle naturbelassene Umgebung und man kann schöne Spaziergänge mit dem Hund machen.
    10 Minuten mit dem Auto, ist versteckt ein toller Ort, den wir empfohlen bekommen haben. Er heißt Sentier de découverte des carrières d'argile. Es ist ein stillgelegter Bergsee, um den man spazieren gehen kann, aber der Ausblick ist einfach wunderschön und unvergesslich.
    Wir träumen heute noch von diesem tollen Campingplatz am See und der Umgebung und würden jederzeit wiederkommen. Wir wären gerne länger geblieben, aber jeder Urlaub hat leider ein Ende, wir haben fernweh, aber denken jederzeit wieder an diesen tollen Urlaub zurück.

    Es war alles nach unserem Geschmack, wir können nichts negatives berichten :-)

Directions


Local attractions

There are 14 hiking trails in the countryside around Étang Vallier, along with three cycling circuits of varying lengths and difficulties.

Several vineyards are also within easy reach of the site, including one less than five kilometres away that’s been family-run for five generations and gives visitors tours on a little train. If you’re in the market for foodie souvenirs, the vineyard shop sells cognac, wine, walnuts and walnut oil, as well as the region’s aperitif Pineau des Charentes.

Also around five kilometres from base is the Guizengeard clay quarry, where there’s a nature trail through to an artificial lake created to fill the holes left by the quarryworks’ excavation of kaolin, a white-coloured clay that gives the water a spectacular turquoise tint: the team at Étang Vallier says this is an absolute must-see.

For road trips, Brossac lies rather conveniently between the Dordogne, Charente-Maritime and Aquitaine regions, and the splendid seaside spot of Royan and other major cultural destinations of Bordeaux, Cognac, Saint-Émilion and Angoulême are all within 90 minutes’ drive.
