This small and friendly site is just the ticket for families and dog owners, with plenty of scenic walks straight from the gates. A pool, play area, tennis courts, pétanque, a games room and miniature golf are all on site; a bar is open daily and wood-fired pizzas are served twice weekly.

Wine and cognac, old old towns, and theme parks featuring the past and the future are what you might like to dive into first around Camping du Bois de St Hilaire, along with the many local marked paths for walking and biking.
A couple of other early stops should be the Poitou-Charentes capital of Poitiers for its medieval centre and nights in its many student-friendly pubs; and the old fortified town of Parthenay, also with a medieval centre as well as ancient town walls, a 13th-century gateway and medieval timber-framed houses. The old port city of La Rochelle is an hour and a half away on the west coast.
The theme park of Puy du Fou will let littlies feel they're in the past at its medieval town, Viking fortress and replica amphitheatre; to feel what the future might be like, take them to Futuroscope, about 30 kilometres from base.
