Swimming pool

General

  • Peaceful site spread over six hectares on the edge of Marans
  • Shops, restaurants and boat hire within 10 minutes' walk
  • Outdoor pool, tennis, playground and archery activities on site

Pedalling along the Vélodyssée or Vélofrancette bike paths, or simply pottering around scenic Charente-Maritime? Either way, family-friendly Camping Le Bois Dinot is a splendid spot to settle in, with six hectares of woods and handy things (shops, restaurants and the like) a 10-minute stroll away in Marans.

Both the aforementioned long-distance paths pass close by, making this a handy stopover for intrepid types wending their way along either. Folks who aren’t up for tackling such a lengthy jaunt can hire bikes on site for more local two-wheeled travels, and there's boat and canoe hire in town if you’d rather see the surrounds from a watery perspective.

Casting your sights a little further afield? Le Bois Dinot is also well located for days out in the Marais Poitevin Natural Park, visits to the Vendée beaches and roaming around Île de Ré.

In between whatever pursuits you pick, you can chill out in the site’s library or TV room, or keep the action going at the outdoor pool, the tennis court or the ping pong table. There's a playground to keep the tiddlers busy, and folk from the local archery club call round on a Thursday morning to help hone techniques for hitting your target.

All the essentials are sorted on site, including a launderette, showers and free wifi. The friendly folks at reception offer a range of handy extra services such as tourist info, mobile gadget charging and the sale of all-important ice creams.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Directions


Local attractions

If you’re in the area with a bike, it’s certainly worth taking it for a meander in the Marais Poitevin Natural Park (20 minutes' drive): a whopping 800 kilometres of traffic-free bike path runs through the second-largest wetland area in all of France. Walking trails also await for those who'd rather roam on foot, or you can glide gently along the waterways in a traditional flat-bottomed boat.

For a dose of sea air as you cycle, pack your bike off across the bridge to Île de Ré (35 minutes’ drive) to pedal between the beaches, cornfields and oyster beds, stopping to seek out snacks at the food markets. If it’s just a sandy stretch you seek, Châtelaillon-Plage is half an hour away, or you could venture to Vendée resorts such as La Tranche-sur-Mer (50 minutes).

If you've got les enfants with you while you're over in the Vendée, the Château des Aventuriers theme park and Indian Forest adventure park (both 50 minutes from the site) are fab places for family days out. Should the weather not encourage such endeavours, head to La Rochelle (half an hour) for the aquarium, maritime museum and art museum.
