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 plenty of activities and events for visitors to take part in during their stay or on a day entry. It covers 47 hectares, and has a super range of stuff to do for active or relaxed superhero breaks, like interactive activities for kids to learn more about the environment (it takes a real hero to resist collecting badges), on a quest to see animals like yaks and alpacas from around the world. Then it's onto the magic forest, where the resident elves and leprechauns can help small adventurers puzzle out the answers they need to complete their mission.

Grownups can boldly go where they haven't before and make courageously 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, covered in low season and uncovered as soon as the weather allows, while the kids swim safely in the paddling pool alongside. The site snack bar is also next to the pool, for superhero fuel of pizza, salads, sandwiches and ice cream in high season, or (and?) cold drinks on the bar terrace.

A champion range of choices is around for eats of other sorts, including a fine Table d’Hôtes grill serving lunch and dinner; a gourmet restaurant open every Saturday and Sunday evening; the more budget Elves' Cauldron restaurant, open every evening from Monday to Saturday, 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.

And, as even superheroes need to burn off excess calories, loads of other outdoor options are right on site, such as horse riding, high ropes, archery and miniature golf, some free and some available for a few extra superhero coins.

Please note

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

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

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

  • Liked: 

    Clearly demarcated, enormous pitches, (you might need levelling ramps!)
    Covered pool (small though!) with excellent changing facilities, pool temp nice.
    Aerial assault course
    Outdoor gym
    Kids park
    Camping shower blocks were spotlessly clean with excellent showers
    Activities reasonably priced (pony rides, archery, aerial assault course)
    Bread/pastries delivered each morning to your pitch

    Disliked: 

    Poor selection of basics in on site shop and not near to any other shops - no fresh meat/veg
    The restaurant booking system is somewhat confusing!
    Theme park not a theme park by UK standards, more of a costly walk!

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, the administrative capital of the Poitou-Charentes.

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 arranged or attended by its large student population. It's a fine old town to potter around by day too, taking one of the three coloured circuits (red, yellow and 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.

The medieval town of Chauvigny, the Abbey Church of Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe and the circuit of Val de Vienne (Le Vigeant) are all within an hour's drive.
