General

  • Lakeside site with fishing and a sandy beach
  • Three pools, one covered and heated to 30°C
  • Many hiking, cycling and horse riding trails nearby

Lovely Lake Lavaud, the biggest lake in the Poitou-Charentes at 200 hectares and a place for boating, sailing, fishing and canoeing as well as for birdwatching: over 170 species have been spotted from its shores.

The campsite is located on a lake with a sandy beach, a nautical base and the possibility of fishing. It has three swimming pools, one of which is covered and heated to 30 ° C. There are many circuits of hiking, cycling or equestrian.

And lovely Camping des Lacs, so short a walk (100 metres) to the lakeside that a good part of the campsite has views overlooking it: if you need more water on your French hol, the site is also just a minute's walk from Guerlie beach.

Des Lacs has modern facilities to suit all sorts of guests from families and couples to solo travellers: there's an indoor and outdoor pool for swims in all weathers, as well as a paddling pool for safe tiddler splashing. Both pools are equipped for guests with reduced mobility.

For kids, trampolines and a bouncy castle are at the playground set handily close to the pools and the snack bar, while sporty sorts have volleyball and badminton courts, a pétanque area and oodles of hiking and biking trails nearby. A games room is also on site and rounds of miniature golf can be tackled at the beach.

Other facilities include a snack bar and restaurant dishing up tasty meals at decent prices. The amenities block has toilets and free hot showers, and there's also a washing-up area.

A grocery shop selling daily essentials is a 300-metre walk from the site; a beach snack bar, a restaurant and an English pub are all nearby.

Please note

The indoor swimming pool is open between 01/04 and 31/10.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/04 and 31/10 (subject to weather conditions).

  • Liked: 

    Very good sized Pitch on a very well managed site. Many pitches with great lake views. Excellent location next to a lovely lake with catamaran, canoe and horse rental on the other side just over the bridge next to an English Pub. Tried the pub twice, very good food and reasonable prices. Site shop limited but the normal pre-order bread etc. On-site bar/restaurant by the lake beach has a good size sun terrace and reasonable prices although we didn't try the food. Overall a good value family/couples site which I would very happily return to when in the area. Didn't try the swimming pool but looked good from the outside. Toilet blocks kept reasonably clean but don't forget to bring your own toilet roll (French thing) (Maybe out of High Season, paper provided)!! A must visit is to Casino Magnus (the largest Roman Baths outside Rome being restored). Reasonable entry price and very interesting. Good site to have or rent a bike as roads very quit.

    Disliked: 

    Very minor niggle, a little far from nearest shops for main provisions, so stock up on the way in, but worth it for the site, staff and location..

    Friendly staff and good sized pitches. Good location next to lake. Good showers etc and well maintained

    Disliked: 

    Site maintenance e.g. hedges was a little lax.

    Showers and toilets were cleanish but weren't cleaned properly every day. Maybe because the site wasn't that busy or maybe the person cleaning them thought power washing the floor and tiles was sufficient.

    Wifi was free but only available at the bar.

    This campsite is in a beautiful setting, on a slight slope with views over the lake .
    Large , and perfectly maintained grass pitches. with mature trees and shrubs separating the plots. A bird lovers paradise, with some I have never seen in UK.
    There is a very good restaurant on site run by English, with the best homemade fish & chips! I have ever seen Very popular with the French too. This place is also very inexpensive to stay. but you do pay for some facilities, i.e. drinking water,sewage disposal, and the swimming pool( which is immaculate). Unusually though Free ! washing and tumble drying facilities . Because it was "pre season we the only we were the only people on site,but with unusual temp of 36 degrees...in May) It was such fun just lazing around enjoying the views and savouring the peace and quiet.

    Disliked: 

    My only disappointment was that the lovely lakes in France are no longer allowed to be used for swimming due to some algae, which affects some waters. This lake was perfectly clean, but apparently, this rule applies now all over France.

    Though spotless, I do think that with 83 pitches, it is rather short of toilet and shower facilities, Especially as this is a very busy summer site

Directions


From Angoulême, take the exit in the direction of Limoges (RN 141) to La Rochefoucauld. There, turn right at the second traffic light towards Rochechouart (D 13). After 26km, in Verneuil, turn left towards Pressignac.
Three kilometres further, cross the dike on the lake: you've arrived.

Local attractions

This is the land of the green and the outdoors: the Charente Limousine and Haute Vienne regions are known for their scenic green landscapes and their outdoors activities like hiking, cycling and horse riding trails, all in a handsome natural setting.

Get out by hoof via the two equestrian centres on the lakeside where you can canter around on horse or pony, or go out onto the water at the watersports centre with canoe, windsurf, kayak, paddleboard, rowing boat and catamaran hire as well as lessons for those who need them.

The lakes of the Haute Charente are popular in the area for fishing (remember you'll need a fishing licence) and for watery activities like sailing, kayaking and canoeing. Lake Lavaud a short walk away is a big pull for twitchers because of the many bird species spotted here over the years, as well as for boaters and watersporters: dinghies, canoes and kayaks are all available to hire at the lake's boat centre and instructors are available if you're new to the art.

Camping des Lacs is also well set for finding out more about the local cultural and historical heritage: try trips to the eleventh century Château de La Rochefoucauld and Rochechouart town, the old Roman village of Cassinomagus and its baths, and the ruins of village Oradour sur Glane, where there's now a permanent museum and memorial to the hundreds of inhabitants killed here in a few hours in World War II.

Within day trip distance, have trips to comic strip town Angoulême and porcelain town Limoges (45 minutes), the Périgord-Limousin Regional Nature Park (one hour), Cognac and the primate park La Vallée des Singes, both within an hour and 15 minutes.
