Inside the site

General

  • Peaceful site in a national forest with a swimming and fishing lake
  • In Normandie-Maine park, a five-minute drive from Sillé-le-Guillaume
  • Playground, TV room, library, badminton, volleyball and pétanque

After a stay in Sarthe’s Normandie-Maine regional park, on the edge of a swimming and fishing lake, and at the crossroads of hiking, biking and horse-riding paths? If this has you nodding your head excitably, make your way to Camping de la Forêt.

Whether your plans are to potter around the Pays de la Loire with family or friends, this site a five-minute drive from the village of Sillé-le-Guillaume is grand for recharging your batteries while surrounded by nature. Alternatively, rev things up a touch with the range of outdoor activities organised in the local area, from rock and tree climbing to mountain biking and kayaking.

Less keen on sports and more into scouting out some scenic spots? Go further north into the Alpes Mancelles region to wander the wooded hills and valleys hereabouts. Trekking trails start right from the park too – simply ask staff for info on recommended routes.

If all this is sounding a tad too tiring, stay on site and chill out with leisurely games of pétanque, table tennis and table football, then move indoors and browse for a book in the library or turn on the telly in the TV room and flick through the channels.

Feeling sluggish? Shake things up with games on the volleyball and badminton courts; energetic enfants have a playground to whizz around and entertainment for the whole family is organised in the warmer months.

    A well organised campsite under tall trees and very close to an attractive lake with swimming and water sports and a sandy beach. We stayed for one night only but would happily have stayed for more.

    Disliked: 

    Might be very busy in season.

Directions


Local attractions

Tour the teeny-tiny old towns and villages in this rural area, beginning with the closest – Sillé-le-Guillaume, five minutes’ drive – for the massive medieval château, then roam the ramparts of another old castle at Fresnay-sur-Sarthe (20 minutes), stopping by the Headdress Museum to poke around the curious collection on display here.

The village of Saint-Céneri-le-Gérei (30 minutes) is known for a fresco-filled 11th-century church set above a river; if you’re more taken by towns, amble around Alençon’s UNESCO-registered centre with a fine art museum exploring the history of its lace-making heritage.

To please the nippers, Zoo de La Flèche has 1,200 animals including rarities like white tigers, polar bears and red pandas. The habitats here are designed to mimic the natural environments of the creatures – look out for landscapes ranging from the Argentinian pampas to the Australian bush.

Guaranteed to up the pace, Le Mans (50 minutes) is a gem in the region, especially if you’re keen on racing. Delve into the history of the city's renowned 24 Hours of Le Mans motor race at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum, and have a go on the simulator rides and go-karts at the racetrack.
