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.

    Nice site by the river. Facilities very good considering this is one of the cheapest sites we've stayed on. Bread van comes around each morning for crossants etc. Easy walk into the town which has a couple of bars and restaurants, however they don't open every night of the week.
    The owners are on site and are very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing about the site, but the town is a little quiet, need to be able to self cater for about three to four nights a week as the restaurants don't open every night in the town.

    Fabulous site, really well situated near town on the banks of a river. Owners really friendly and very helpful, could not do enough and catered for everyone. The place was spotlessly clean, showers great.
    We have this place at the top of our list now for whenever we go to France :)
    Canoeing was a bonus too!

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).
