Nest to the outdoor pool

General

  • Peaceful 45-hectare woodland site two kilometres from Brossac village
  • Four-hectare lake with beach for wakeboarding, fishing and swimming
  • Snack bar and restaurant with huge terrace overlooking the lake

There's a lovely lake at Camping Étang Vallier two kilometres from the Brossac in the south of the Charente department – and a splendid setting too, as the site is lushly laid out among a forest of oak, pine and chestnut trees.

This 45-hectare holiday village has its own four-hectare lake, where you can rent boats and try your hand at fishing, waterskiing and wakeboarding, or just lounge around and sunbathe on the sandy and roomy beach. Prefer to pedal? The site has bike hire and easy access to mountain bike circuits, a greenway and local looped trails: pick from nine loops of varying lengths and difficulties on the three circuits that lie nearby.

There’s plenty more here too, including a summer miniature golf course, a squash court, and beach activities arranged by the team in the summer season.

Eats are sorted at the snack bar and restaurant, which has a huge terrace overlooking the lake. The village a 20-minute walk away has two restaurants, bakeries, a butcher's, a mini market and a petrol station.

    It's in a nice area, near a typical French town. We were sited among trees, so well shaded. Pitches were fairly flat. The nearby lake was a pleasant, easy walk. It was walking distance to the relatives that we were visiting.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet and shower block is seriously in need of updating. The loo seats are cheap plastic and were badly fitted, so moved around, and the showers were basic, although it was all reasonably clean. The electric and water points were dilapidated and didn't look as if they would pass an inspection. As a result we felt that the site was a bit overpriced. We certainly wouldn't consider returning there if there was a nearer option to the relatives that we were visiting.

From the manager...

Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié le site de 6 hectares du camping avec son étang et sa plage.
Nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que vous n'avez pas apprécié la taille et l'agencement de nos sanitaires. Cela nous surprend beaucoup puisque un coté du bloc sanitaire à été refait à neuf il y a 2 ans avec 3 grandes douches à l'italienne que vous ne mentionnez pas.
Les installations électriques sont vérifié chaque année par un organisme habilité.

Nous sommes un camping familial 1 étoile qui ne peut pas prétendre fournir les mêmes services interne qu'un 5 étoiles, même si nous mettons tous notre cœur et courage à accueillir au mieux nos vacanciers.
Nous espérons que vous trouverez l'hébergement qui vous conviendra pour vos prochains séjours. »

    The campsite is lovely. The facilities always clean. The owners incredibly helpful and kind. Tabletennis available, short walk to lake beach with a restaurant, food truck and bar. Brilliant place to take your own paddleboards. Great places nearby to explore on the river, for swimming or kayaking.

    l'accueil sympathique.
    Le lieu en bordure d'une petite station balnéaire.

    Disliked: 

    proximité de voisins slaves gênants, très bruyants et vulgaires. Rixes entre eux en pleine nuit au point de faire intervenir la gendarmerie.
    Les responsables du camping devraient à l'avenir contrôler davantage leurs locataires.
    Présence de légions de moustiques, prévoir citronnelle.

Directions


Local attractions

There are 14 hiking trails in the countryside around Étang Vallier, along with three cycling circuits of varying lengths and difficulties.

Several vineyards are also within easy reach of the site, including one less than five kilometres away that’s been family-run for five generations and gives visitors tours on a little train. If you’re in the market for foodie souvenirs, the vineyard shop sells cognac, wine, walnuts and walnut oil, as well as the region’s aperitif Pineau des Charentes.

Also around five kilometres from base is the Guizengeard clay quarry, where there’s a nature trail through to an artificial lake created to fill the holes left by the quarryworks’ excavation of kaolin, a white-coloured clay that gives the water a spectacular turquoise tint: the team at Étang Vallier says this is an absolute must-see.

For road trips, Brossac lies rather conveniently between the Dordogne, Charente-Maritime and Aquitaine regions, and the splendid seaside spot of Royan and other major cultural destinations of Bordeaux, Cognac, Saint-Émilion and Angoulême are all within 90 minutes’ drive.
