The Thouet river, less than five minutes' walk away

General

  • Peaceful site five minutes' stroll from the banks of the Thouet river
  • Within an hour of vineyards, theme parks and Loire valley châteaux
  • Swimming pool, games room, bar, bistro and wine tastings

At Camping de Courte Vallée, the valley may be short, but you won’t want your stay to be… The family-friendly site is less than five minutes’ drive from the centre of Airvault, a small town in the Deux-Sèvres department of Poitou-Charentes, and is a top jumping off point for lengthy explores, beaux cháteaux and having a tipple or two.

This is a pretty part of France, so don’t leave it unexplored: the Thouet river is within five minutes’ stroll of the site, so take to the water on kayaks and canoes or keep to the banks for riverside wanders with your dog. If you fancy lengthier rambles, the long-distance GR 36 walking route passes right by the site entrance.

Days on site might include a slow-paced game of pétanque, some overly intense table tennis (it’s a serious sport), sloshy wine tastings and vineyard tours, and a splashy dip or leisurely float in the pool.

There’s an on-site bistro to sort hungry times, or you can stop by the grocery shop for supplies to get a barbecue going if you prefer to cook for yourself (don’t forget to order some fresh bread for the morning). Once you’ve worked up a thirst, toddle over to the bar for beer, wine or sobering coffee.

Before you leave, be sure to venture into Airvault to try some goat cheese – it's a local delicacy…

    L'accueil déplorable, on nous a dit d'aller où on voulait sans nous accompagner, pas de plan, pas d'info et surtout ils ne parlaient pas français, et aucun effort, c'est honteux. Piscine sympa mais pas de pédiluve, pas de douche... peu d'entretien des espaces verts

Directions


Local attractions

If castles drew you here, you’re in luck: the stunning Château d’Oiron and its contemporary art collection are 20 minutes’ drive from the site and the spectacular châteaux of the Loire Valley are within easy reach. There are lots of jewels in that particular crown, but if you can only get to a handful, Brissac, Brézé and the hulking Château d’Angers are musts within an hour and a half.

Ease your way from castles to vineyards 40 minutes away at Château de Montreuil-Bellay, where you can explore the castle before nipping into the shop for tastings. Venture on to 10 kilometres of underground cellars at the Cave des Vignerons de Saumurs, then make your way to Angers for samplings of Cointreau.

Kids might not notice the differences between grape varieties, so keep them happy at nearby theme parks and activity parks: the multimedia Futuroscope, the ever-popular Puy de Fou and the treetop adventures of Parc Aventure 79 are within about an hour, or they can talk with the animals at Vallée des Singes or Bioparc de Doué-la-Fontaine zoo.

For some time en famille in the open air, make the journey to Green Venice for leafy waterways and gondola trips, or stick a little closer to base to poke around scenic Thouars and Parthenay.
