Heated pool and paddling pool

General

  • Small and family-friendly site on the Mars peninsula
  • Spectacular views of Villerest lake and the Loire river
  • Pool, paddling pool and licensed restaurant with terrace

Adventurers, get thee to Mars. To the stellar Mars peninsula in France's spectacular Loire region, to be exact, a green and scenic place on the biggest meander of the lush Loire river.

A most excellent 10-kilometre walk around the peninsula can be had in these handsome parts, passing the small site of Camping De Mars on its way to and from the church in nearby Cordelle. The site is a top spot for Mars adventurers to make their voyage back to each evening, as the grounds have spectacular views of the Loire river and the adjoining Villerest lake to settle peacefully down among after a long day's exploring.

If you care not to venture too far, rowing and canoeing are available 100 metres away and many walking and hiking trails are nearby. If you care not to venture anywhere at all, the family team lays on summer activities such as pétanque competitions, darts, cooking workshops and dance nights. There's also a summer pool in scenic surrounds, fishing straight from the site, a games room, and a playground with trampoline, slide and other outdoor toys.

Camping De Mars is less than 10 minutes' drive from local town Cordelle, but if you care not to venture anywhere for eats either, the licensed site restaurant serves pizza, salad and grilled meats. Coffee, cocktails and ice creams are also available throughout the day and bread orders are taken every evening.

When you do decide to boldly go into the Mars peninsula and Loire valley countryside, a tourist info point is to hand to help you decide where to make for first.

Local attractions

The hiking and biking trails nearby include the 10-kilometre Mars peninsula path starting from the churchyard in Cordelle, passing Camping de Mars and the hamlets of Le Crêt and La Perrière on a circular loop. Bikes can be hired on site if you'd prefer to ride the route.

Vino fans should take a gander at the Château de Boen winemakers' museum, within 40 minutes' drive at Boën castle, with displays including alcohol stills, info on winegrowing and artefacts sent in by local winegrowers. A few kilometres from there is Volerie du Forez, where the eagle-eyed can spy falcons on display, or learn to handle them under the supervision of an experienced falconer.

Several traditional French villages including Semur-en-Brionnais (55 minutes), Charlieu (45 minutes), Lapalisse and Oingt (both around an hour) are within day trip distance. Or travel along to the spectacular greenery of two Remarkable Gardens of France: the gardens of Romans de Varenne-l'Arconce an hour and 10 minutes away, and the Garden of the Zéphyr within an hour and a half.
