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.

And lovely Camping des Lacs, so short a walk (100 metres) to the lakeside that a good part of the site 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 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.

Best campsite we stayed in by far 02/09/2018

    Great size pitch (huge!) was offered a choice. Both electric & water at each pitch. Owners really helpful as our French is basic ! You can order bread & croissants for each morning. We visited the supermarket whilst there about 10 minute drive. Great location & views over lake. Did eat at the pub a 10 mins walk across the bridge. Travelled from Belgium through France stayed at many campsites & this was definitely the best by far.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing

We thank you for this comment ! We hope you had a good return in Belgium !

A superb campsite with great facilities. Perfect for families. 31/08/2018

    We spent 2 superb weeks at Camping des Lacs and could not find fault there.
    Our pitch was the largest we've ever had in our 10+ years of camping. We had both water and electricity on the pitch which was really practical.
    The campsite is quite literally in the middle of nowhere, which is what we wanted. The nearest village has a bakery and the nearest supermarket is about 10 minutes away.
    Access to the lake is really simple, our kids particularly loved the pools and trampolines. We enjoyed the peace and quiet (no WiFi, very little network which may put some people off, but we loved the fact that our teenagers had no choice but to look up from their phones! ).
    Staff were helpful and friendly and always had time for our questions. The shower block was cleaned daily and cleaners were always friendly.
    I would not hesitate to stay there again.

    Pitch sizes - huge(!) and about as private as you can get on a campsite.
    Friendly and helpful staff.
    Beautiful location on edge of lake.
    Kids loved the swimming pools (and trampolines/slack lines etc).
    Electric hook up & water taps on each pitch.
    Snack bar (serving pizza/steak hache & chips, drinks, ice cream etc) staff were really friendly and we enjoyed eating there with the kids on a couple of evenings, beautiful setting looking out over the lake.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing really, we had a great time (mini-golf felt a little tired but minor thing).

Wonderful campsite, highly recommended! 22/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    This is the best campsite that we've ever stayed in! Not only is it in a gorgeous location, but the pitches are huge, each with its own water and electricity. The ablution blocks were spotless each day, with plentiful hot water for showers, and sufficient washing-up and laundry facilities that we never queued for anything, despite it being peak season. Helene and her team provided fantastic service and nothing was too much trouble.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches overlooking the lake would be even better if the bushes between the pitches and the lake were trimmed down a bit.

From the manager...

We thank you for this good review ! We are happy that you have appreciated our camp site and we will cut hedges from the lake this winter for a better view ;)

    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..

Directions


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 (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.
