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 Camping 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.

    L'emplacement de qualité, vert et spacieux. Les diverses activités. L'environnement, la nature et surtout la connexion 4G parfaite sur mon emplacement, j'ai pu travailler dans un cadre magnifique en partageant ma connexion avec mon ordinateur. C'est un point très positif pour moi 👍

    Disliked: 

    L'accueil, les diverses modalités ne nous sont pas bien expliquées. La remise d'un livret même en PDF aurait été parfait parce que du coup, on a perdu des jours avant de savoir que pour commander au resto, il fallait le faire avant telle heure, pour la plancha, il faut réserver la veille, les horaires du bar etc. C'est la même chose pour les activités, il y en a certaines qu'on ne peut faire que certains jours... Il manquait de diversité dans les menus et nous sommes tombés sur une serveuse très antipathique, aucun sourire, qui pose le vin sans nous servir, nous passe le commentaire que nous mangeons trop de pain. Jamais vu ça ! Et la seconde fois, le serveur était bien mais on nous a servi de la sauce au poivre qui avait tourné 😲 Bref, il y a place a amélioration sur la partie restaurant.

Directions


Local attractions

The superstar setting of Camping 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 Futuroscope, reachable in 35 minutes via the N147.
