- Small, friendly adults-only site by the River Charente
- English-run in a peaceful setting close to St Laurent de Ceris
- Canoeing, fishing, pool and plenty of peaceful riverside spots
Let your troubles and stresses wash away at the peaceful adults-only Camp Laurent, an English-run site on the banks of the Charente river, just outside Saint-Laurent-de-Céris in the south west of France.
It’s easy to get out and about from Camp Laurent, as the site is on one of the region’s many bike routes and there are more than 1,000 kilometres of trails in the surrounding area – rent a bike on site and get in that saddle... Prefer to explore on water? No problem: there’s easy river access at the bottom of a wooded bank for fishing and canoeing.
If you’re hanging around the site, there are plenty of peaceful riverside spots where you can sit with a glass of wine and watch the butterflies flitting around in spring and summer, or you can cool off on hot days in the on-site pool.
Camp Laurent is just under five kilometres from Saint-Laurent-de-Céris, where you can grab some grub at the market or boulangerie, or sit down to a meal at the bar-restaurant. If you’re angling to fish in the Charente while you’re in the area, pick up a temporary permit at the boulangerie while you’re in town.
Open from 15/05/2018 to 30/09/2018
This is an adults-only site. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.
The outdoor swimming pool is open between 15/05 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

If hiking and cycling haven’t been enough exercise for you, head to the Haute Charente lakes, 30 minutes from Camp Laurent – follow the trails on horseback or by foot, throw out a line to try your luck at fishing, go kayaking, boating, canoeing or windsurfing, or just relax on one of the sandy beaches.
Take a break from the go-go-go by slowing things down for a dive into the history and culture of the area. Visit the stunning châteaux at Rochechouart and Rochefoucauld, both within 35 minutes’ drive of Camp Laurent, or make the trip to the nearby Confolens to wander the medieval streets and – if you time your visit right – join in the August Festival de Folklore.
You could also explore the many museums, galleries, theatres and spectacular churches in the town of Angoulême, a 45-minute drive from Camp Laurent, or, for something a little different, build up a rivalry at laser tag or try one of the town’s escape rooms.
If you have the time, and are with a patient driver, the town of Cognac is an hour and a quarter’s drive from the site. While you’re there, you can do tours and tastings at the Hennessy, Remy Martin, and Meukow distilleries and, when you’re finished, test whether you can still walk in a straight line with a visit to the public gardens.
