This is said to be one of the sunniest areas in the whole of France – and while the weather can't be guaranteed, there should be plenty of good times in the forecast for those staying at Camping de la Grange au Maire. This small family-run campsite is in the southern Deux-Sèvres, in the centre of the four departments that make up the Poitou-Charentes, and there's lots for all the family to do and see.
The site is in sleepy countryside but just a handy 10 minutes’ drive from the N10 motorway, making it a handy stopover point on journeys to or from the south of France or into Spain. It's also close to the three main airports of Poitiers, Limoges and La Rochelle, which are all within a 90-minute drive.
What to expect on site? Spacious grass pitches have parking by your accommodation and access to refurbished showers with a shaver point and hair drier, a washing-up area and a chemical toilet disposal point. Also useful are the 16-amp electric hook-ups for all the pitches.
Pitches are within fully enclosed grounds behind large gates and hedges, ensuring that your stay will be a peaceful, secure and secluded one for everybody, especially the children. A small communal room has a selection of books and DVDs for any days when the weather’s not cooperating.
Please note, if you're arriving late on Saturdays or after midday on Sunday, there are no shops open in the area, so make sure you stock up before you arrive. The local supermarket is in Sauzé-Vaussais (five minutes’ drive).
Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.
Discount cards and gift vouchers cannot be applied to bookings made via Pitchup.com.
The games room is open between 01/04 and 31/10.
Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.
Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.
If reception is closed on arrival: please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.
As the site is on a septic tank and not mains sewerage, guests must only flush toilet paper in the toilets and only green or eco-friendly toilet fluids should be used in chemical toilets.

There’s so much to do within an hour’s drive of the site. If you’re holidaying with the kids, head for Futuroscope (55 minutes’ drive) for a day on its immersive 4D rides, dancing with robots and playgrounds for younger kids. La Vallée des Singes (half an hour) is the place for feeding sessions with free-roaming monkeys and the chance to see silverback gorillas, while DéfiPlanet' (an hour) has a petting zoo and treetop rope courses.
In the walled city of Angoulême (50 minutes), there are comic-book museums to poke around and 30 giant cartoon murals spread across the city. When you’re done with culture, there’s a manmade beach at Nautilis, along with indoor and outdoor pools and paddling pools for toddlers. If you fancy a day at the real thing, the sandy shores of historic La Rochelle are an hour and a half away on the Atlantic coast.
Closer to base camp, at Ruffec Rejallant Canoë Kayak (25 minutes), families can kayak down the Charente River to the historic town of Verteuil-sur-Charente and its château.
