Camping des Ribières

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Riverside site on the outskirts of Confolens
  • Hire canoes and fishing kit to take out onto the river
  • Pool, playground, shop and summer snack bar

Hire a canoe and get onto the river right from the Charente region's Camping des Ribières – and if you fancy fishing, that's on offer straight from this peaceful site too.

Canoe trips can be started as well from des Ribières's local town of Confolens, where there's also a public pool, horse riding centre and tennis courts. The town's in the triangle between Poitiers, Angoulême and Limoges for further exploring; for family days, an animal park and an adventure park are both within 15 kilometres.

Camping des Ribières is a spacious and quiet site, in a wildlife haven and walkers' paradise on the banks of the Vienne. It has free wifi throughout, a playground and a pétanque court for leisure, and a drying room, launderette and washrooms with toilets, showers and accessible facilities covering the amenities.

The small shop on site sells drinks, souvenirs and camping gas. In summer there's also a snack bar and a small market a couple of times a week.

    Beautiful setting by the river, good size pitches and an easy walk into Confolens. The lady on reception was very friendly. The shower block was clean and modern. Loved the Hen and her 10 chicks wandering around.

    You would be hard pushed to find a more peaceful site than this with a superb riverside location. It is just outside confolens but within east walking distance. There was a food truck serving burgers chips etc. while we were there and the food was great. Good sized pitches, nice and flat.

    Disliked: 

    My only quibble, and I’m not big, but the shower cubicles we’re in the small side.

    Everything!! What a wonderful campsite, right on the banks of the river and just a five minute walk to the town of Confollen.
    This site thinks of everything, there are kayaks and bikes that are free to hire, a frites van that visits every evening and a Boulanger every morning. We would definitely stay here again!

    Great riverside location. Very accommodating hosts, relaxing atmosphere on site. Great recycling facilities, including compostables. On-site veg garden.

    Disliked: 

    Access could be tricky through old town if you had larger motorhome/caravan. Water from showers gushes rather than sprays.

Directions


Local attractions

As well as the fishing and canoeing straight from the site, you can find swimming, horse riding, tennis and more canoeing within a kilometre at Confolens.

After all that, stick around in town to access a trip along the former railway line between Confolens and Roumazières, or – much recommended – taking your own velorail along the old railway track via rivers, forest, grassland and viaducts. If you're around in August, Confolens is the annual host of the International Folklore Festival, which sees hundreds of performers turn up to tell their tales.

By car, La Colline Enchantée animal park 10 kilometres away and the Lacs de Haute Charente adventure park (15 kilometres) should see approval from the kids; within about an hour are the cartoonish attractions of painted walls, comics festival and Museum of Cartoons at Charente capital Angoulême.

Châteaux are simple to get to from here too: try Château de St Germain (five kilometres), Château de Rochebrune (15 kilometres) and Château de Peyras (also 15 kilometres).
