    Easy to book on Pitchup.com. Lovey friendly welcome. Shown a map of the site and facilities. Allowed to choose any free pitch. Pitch size was massive, all grassed, surrounded by trees and shrubs. This site had a lovely, peaceful feel. Enjoyed the woodland walk on site. Lovely play area for children. Seating area and games room next to the pool area. Pool was large and very clean. Bar area next to reception and we were able to order fresh bread and pain au chocolates for the morning. WIFI across most of the site.
    Toilet block was clean with toilet paper. 2 x female showers were nice and clean.

    Cleanliness of the campsite. The family that owned the campsite were great and nothing was any trouble for them. Pitch sizes were big, and great activities like table tennis and mini golf were available to entertain the children.

    Disliked: 

    This isn't a dislike but I can imagine when busy the toilet situation can be a bit busy as there were only 3 for the entire campsite.

    Friendly welcome from new owners, pool, forest setting, the slightly ramshackle crazy golf and other play interests. Good size pitches, peaceful site. Kids loved it as did we. Good luck to the new owners I would definitely recommend this site.

beautiful site, friendly hosts, pool a definite plus 08/11/2016

  • Liked: 

    The site is gorgeous,set amongst oak and pine forest, it provides a selection of shady and sunlit pitches, and we were never overheated in our tent, whilst still getting areas of direct sunlight for drying clothes and enjoying an opportunity for a seat in the sun. Around the pool there are parasols for shade, and the sunlight, particularly in the late afternoon, make this a gathering place for the guests of all nationalities, enjoying the water and the beer and ice creams.
    The hosts are helpful and friendly, making for a very convivial atmosphere. Their family all contribute to making you feel welcome, and there are lots of child friendly play items, from swings, slides and climbing frames, to the playhouse and play cafe food and mini-golf. Older kids might enjoy the table tennis table, pool table, badminton net and tennis courts, although ours mainly used the tennis courts as scootering areas.

    Disliked: 

    the hosts have plans for updating some of the more tired areas, which will be interesting to follow

Directions


We can be found beside the village of Chalandray on the N149, 20km east from Parthenay and 30km west from Poitiers and Exit 29 of the A10. From the town centre take the D24 towards Vouzailles - we are just 750m further on the right-hand side.

Local attractions

Wine and cognac, old old towns, and theme parks featuring the past and the future are what you might like to dive into first around Camping du Bois de St Hilaire, along with the many local marked paths for walking and biking.

A couple of other early stops should be the Poitou-Charentes capital of Poitiers for its medieval centre and nights in its many student-friendly pubs; and the old fortified town of Parthenay, also with a medieval centre as well as ancient town walls, a 13th-century gateway and medieval timber-framed houses. The old port city of La Rochelle is an hour and a half away on the west coast.

The theme park of Puy du Fou will let littlies feel they're in the past at its medieval town, Viking fortress and replica amphitheatre; to feel what the future might be like, take them to Futuroscope about 30 kilometres from base.
