Entrance to the site

General

  • Peaceful haven surrounded by vineyards near Montguyon village
  • Hot air balloon flights, horse riding, walking and bike trails nearby
  • Fishing, birdwatching and wildlife spotting around the lake

Hot air balloon flights, horse rides, scenic cycles and natural lake swims are all around this spectacular back to nature site in the south of the Charente-Maritime region.

Camping La Motte places a big emphasis on its guests being able to relax among properly peaceful surroundings, so there's no disco or the like to distract you from the job at hand – just a few early evening games of pétanque and plenty of space for peaceful strolls and bike rides around the site's shaded avenues and neighbouring vineyards.

The fishing lake is a pleasant place to cast your line out or relax alongside, and if you're an ardent ornithologist or wildlife watcher then the likes of osprey, European bee eaters and roe deer can all be spotted on walks around the lake's edge and the surrounding countryside.

For times in between your nature walks, boules games and ticking off Charente-Maritime critters, the snack bar terrace is a splendid spot to sit around and socialise in while you keep an eye on the littlies in the playground next door – or peruse the leaflets and books you can pick up from reception to plan your upcoming days of Charente-Maritime adventures.

Camping La Motte doesn't have a shop, but it doesn't really need one: it's close enough to the town of Montguyon, where you can pick up your morning baguettes and other groceries or treat yourself to the local cuisine in one of its restaurants.

From the manager...

First of all thank you for taking the time to give a review.
The food truck is operated by an external guy so we do not have any influence on how you can pay.
Your pitch can be paid by card or cash as you prefer. And there is wifi on the campsite. You only need
to ask for your (personal) code. Thought you knew since it is not the first time you stayed here.

    Quiet location but great supermarket very close selling great local products.

    Disliked: 

    Washing facilities very cold and basic but we were travelling in February.

From the manager...

Sorry to read you were not happy about the washing facilities. There is not much we can do about the outside temperature, which is why we have put a heater in the disabled facilities that everyone can use. We understand the low score for "activities" since we do not organize any activities on-site, but 6/10 for tidyness where we usually score very high is puzzling us.

    Fantastic site in a beautiful location, very typically french, lovely and rural

    Owner couldn’t be more helpful, gave us a list of easy to understand local walks through beautiful villages

    Facilities very clean

    Stayed here an extra night, and would have stayed longer if we’d had time
    Huge supermarket within 5 minutes drive

    Disliked: 

    Could do with laundry facilities and showers didn’t have hot water controls, and water was warm at best

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive review. There is a laundrette in Montguyon (4km) open 7/7 from 07h00 until 21h00.
No hot water controls is done on purpose and we would have turned up the temperature on first request. Hope we may welcome you again, certainly since you have not yet done the long 5 to 6 hours walk.

Directions


Local attractions

Vineyards and wine tasting tours are all around in this area, including one in nearby Montguyon – ask the friendly La Motte team for their fave vineyards or to point you in the direction of something to suit your palate.

Between April and October, book to go up in a hot air balloon after sunrise or a good hour before sunset; depending on the direction of the wind, there are more than 30 places for flight departures, including one around a kilometre from Camping La Motte, and another couple further afield in the Safari Parc de Haute-Saintonge and the Chalais airfield, both 15 kilometres away.

Over in Bordeaux, an hour's drive away, visit La Cité du Vin on the banks of the Garonne to learn about the world of wine. Several good museums are here too, including the Musée d'Aquitaine, Musée des Beaux-Arts and the Musée d'Art Contemporain, all presided over by the UNESCO-listed 11th-century Cathédrale St-André.
