General

  • Lakeside location ten minutes' drive from Futuroscope
  • Swimming pool and many outdoor activities available on site
  • Within a 300-hectare natural park

This French campsite is making us hum 'we are sailing'. And so will you be with a stay here, as well as canoeing, fishing or simply just paddling among the watery surrounds…

As you may have guessed, Camping du Lac de Saint-Cyr is in a lakeside location with outdoor activities and watersports opps galore: the campsite is within a 300-hectare natural park where you can tackle golf, hiking, tennis and horse riding as well as the sailing, canoeing and fishing – and if you're not feeling sporty, you could just bask on the beach under the warm sun: c'est bliss.

This is a peaceful park, in a quiet part of the scenic Vienne, but only a ten-minute drive from the Futuroscope theme park and 20 minutes from the Vienne capital of Poitiers.

Wifi is available throughout the site – just the ticket for informing the kids of every historical fact you can find out about the area, we say – and there's also a pool, a play area, a TV room and a pétanque court. The food shop sells plenty of essentials as well as local specialties.

Camping du Lac de Saint-Cyr also has a launderette and toilet blocks with free hot showers.

Excellent site with varied pitches and a good atmosphere. 07/08/2017

claire_f248402 Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    The free use of the canoes and pedals in the morning, pitch size and surroundings. The friendly staff, clean pool and activities available (also free, even cycle excursions). The bar/cafe meal was good value, the relative quiet even on busy days and bins and recycling out of the way so no one was camping next to a stench. The communal bbq's were handy and cleaned each day. We got discounted access to the aquazone (large inflatable obstacle course).
    Clean toilet, shower and wash up areas.

    Disliked: 

    The lack of toilet seats in our block, when the other block was fully seated. But it seems plenty of public facilities are the same. The market day was disappointing with just 3 stalls, but had nice goods on offer.
    Avoid the associated golf restaurant in the evening, it was on the expensive side and wasn't worth the money. I tried to explain I'd found some sort of grit in my meal but the waiter said it was from the nut shells, which it clearly wasn't.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely pitch surrounded by hedges and trees. Great facilities kept very clean. Lots to do especially free canoeing and pedaloes plus reasonable price for Inflatable assault course on the lake. Nice fishing and great fresh baguettes available in the shop. Kids club leaders were fab and made great effort to include kids of all nationality.the trampoline proved a hit as the kids hangout place to be.

    Disliked: 

    Very noisy French karaoke til very late. Outdoor pool too cold as unheated. Futuroscope is great but nothing in English.poor WiFi unless you are sat in reception.

Directions


Local attractions

Tech types will probably already have sussed out that this is the area of Parc du Futuroscope, the famed French theme park delving into the techniques of audio-visual, multimedia and cinematography in over 20 attractions including 3D and 4D cinemas.

If you have the kids all fired up about the local history and heritage (hmmm), take them along to fab and ancient Poitiers, the Vienne's capital and filled with Romanesque and religious architecture, and to the eleventh century Abbey Church of Saint-Savin-sur-Gartempe with its many ancient murals.

If they say non to that, get along to the famed primate park of the Vallée des Singes or the Planète des Crocodiles, two popular family picks in the region, or to Les Géants du Ciel in the medieval town of Chauvigny, where the old old art of falconry is performed.

Food and drink is also – of course – much famed in the area: top picks of local produce include tourteau fromagé, Macarons de Montmorillon, bûche du Poitou and Haut-Poitou wines.
