General

  • Eco-friendly holiday park with a wide range of activities on site
  • Finnish sauna, hammam and Jacuzzi tubs
  • Bar, pools and restaurants including an Elves' Grill and Table d’Hôtes

You don't need to be a superhero to stay at splendidly eco-friendly DéfiPlanet' in the Vienne, says its team; all you need is a hankering for saving the planet and preserving the natural environment – and possibly entering heroically into the spirit of regular sauna trips too…?

DéfiPlanet is the biggest holiday village in France, as well as a leisure park with activities and events for visitors to take part in during their stay or on a day entry. Covering 47 hectares, it has a vast range of stuff to do for active or relaxed superhero breaks, and a magic forest where resident elves and leprechauns greet small adventurers.

Grownups can boldly go where they haven't before and make for the scenic spa, where there's a Finnish sauna, a hammam, two Jacuzzi tubs and light therapy. Or spend some time venturing gallantly into the heated pool complex, and then to the snack bar alongside for superhero fuel... or get stuck into the loads of other outdoor options on site such as horse riding, high ropes, archery and miniature golf, some free and some available for a few extra superhero coins.

A champion range of choices is around for eats of other sorts, including a Table d’Hôtes grill; a weekend gourmet restaurant; the more budget Elves' Cauldron restaurant, and the splendid Elves' Grill, where groups of up to eight can have platters of meat, fish and other tasty treats delivered to a wooden chalet to grill on the central barbecue table.

Barbecue packs, takeaways and breakfasts delivered right to your door are all available too.

Please note

Facilities/activities including archery, horse-riding, treetop adventures are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/06 and 30/09 (subject to weather conditions).

The indoor swimming pool is open between 05/02 and 03/01.

    great campsite, very clean with polite helpful staff. lots of activities for kids on site.
    High ropes was great and they have differerent courses for all ages.

    Disliked: 

    The bar shut at 7pm, you had to reserve dinner in advance and no option to buy food or drinks on site after 7pm. The campsite is in the middle of nowhere, you cant take a stroll into town or even a local shop. I was travelling alone with a small child and had hoped to have more of a social atmosphere (drinks, music, themed evenings) no such luck and i felt very chlostophobic and alone by the end of the week. When i asked about things for adults to do in the evening, i was offered a vending machine and a ping pong table :/

    we went in the theme park for the day, but unfortunately our swipe card was not working on most of the stations, not sure if it couldnt process the translation, it was the card or the station that had been swiped many times.
    Also, nobody advised that the tree top walk would be so slippy in the wet.... we discovered this to late, it is made out of decking plank with not sand or mesh stuck on, as you first step on from the top or going down its very steep, my daughter slipped 3 times on this and thankfully the safety net is very strong, but it made it quite a scary decent and she was quite sore afterwards.

    The play areas were located a long way from the pitches, could do with a small one on each area, no way i was letting my daughter walk alone to the other side of the campsite, she usually likes to play in these with other children while i am cooking nearby.

From the manager...

Hello,
Thank you for the comment of your stay.
Our park of 50 hectares is located in full nature, as indicated on the situation of the Pitchup website.
You can buy food and drinks on site in our shop open until 19h.
We propose 3 types of restorations, of which only one on reservation.
Our brewery the cauldron of leprechauns is accessible without reservation.
We are a holiday village and we do not offer special entertainment so that everyone can enjoy the peace and nature.
For the Défiplanet theme park, the magnetic badge is recorded on the terminals in the museum, you just have to select your language to enjoy the comments in English.
For the suspension bridge at the top of the trees, there are indications that the soil can be slippery.
We hope your child is well.
We would have also enjoyed meeting you during your stay.

    Pitch: We liked the big pitch, the picnic table, the shed with fridge and clothes dryer and sunloungers.
    Staff: The staff were helpful and polite, the bread was delicious and delivered to the pitch.
    Toilets & showers: Clean and modern - no complaints.
    Activities: The kids loved the playground, the pool & the ropes course. They also loved playing on the site which we found safe and in the woods.
    The general campsite was well looked after and well laid out.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing about the campsite, the location was probably a bit out of the way with not much to do in close proximity.

    We couldn't sort the wifi.

Local attractions

The superstar setting of DéfiPlanet' is a few minutes' drive or quick bike ride from Dienne, and about half an hour from Poitiers.

As the second oldest university town in France (after Paris), Poitiers has a lively nightlife and a busy calendar of cultural activities and social events. It's a fine old town to potter around by day too, taking one of the three coloured circuits (red, yellow or blue) around famed sights like the baptistry, cathedral and church of Notre-Dame, the historic centre, and around the Parc de Blossac. Pick up info on all three trails at the Poitiers tourist office, next to the cathedral.

This is a smashing setting for kids and families too, with three big and fab attractions within a short drive: Crocodile Planet, 15 minutes away, Valley of the Monkeys, within 40, and the famed theme park of Futuroscope, reachable in 35 minutes via the N147.
