Entrance and reception

General

  • Peaceful and friendly site in a green riverside setting
  • Direct access to the gardens of Surgères's castle
  • Pool/aqua yoga, weekly pony rides, and snack bar by the pool terrace

This is a pretty place… And in a mighty pretty region too: peaceful and friendly Camping de la Gères is within easy reach of Charente Maritime attractions and highlights: it's a few minutes' stroll from the handsome old town of Surgères, half an hour from the Atlantic coast, and 45 minutes from the spectacular sights of La Rochelle.

Named after the Gères river flowing alongside the site, Camping de la Gères is a family site shaded by trees and hedges, with room aplenty around its grounds and woodland for ambles and play. There's direct access from the site to the gardens of Surgères's castle for more of the same… or you could hire a bike from the team to take out on the local cycle paths… or hoist the kids along to the weekly pony rides trotting off into the countryside.

Loads of leisure options are around for days on site: options include dips or aqua gym and aqua yoga sessions in the heated pool, basks on the loungers alongside, pétanque competitions and music quizzes, and a summer kids' club three times a week to keep small sorts entertained (activities and entertainment in July and August only).

Take yourself too for lengthy wanders around Surgères (500 metres away through the castle gardens) and its plentiful markets including a covered market three times a week, a monthly outdoor market, and a weekly craft market arranged by the Camping de la Gères team.

Regional produce should be investigated at most of these; for other eats – and drinks – the site snack bar (open mid-June to mid-September) sells light bites, beer and cocktails, to have at the pool terrace or to take away.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

    The pool was lovely, the bar area and chance to order delicious bread each day was perfect. The sanitary block is spotlessly clean and maintained to a very high standard. The pitches were also very private and spaces on this compact but perfectly formed little site which is only a few minutes walk away from the town centre. We loved it!

    Was very clean. Liked the baby bath and changing table.

    Disliked: 

    The pitch was covered in tree roots. Very small play park crowded with over aged kids. Pool was freezing and quite small especially when full of rambunctious kids.

Spectacular sights of the Charente-Maritime, the Vendée and the Atlantic coast are within easy day trip distance: as well as La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré, there's Rochefort and its Corderie Royale maritime arsenal half an hour's drive away; the lush isle of Oléron (50 minutes), and Fort Boyard and the Île d'Aix, within an hour and a half.

Coastwards, Royan 30 minutes' drive away is the main city of the Côte de Beauté and one of the best known seaside resorts on the French Atlantic coast. It has five beaches to explore/idle on, architectural tours for architectural types, a thalassotherapy centre and a casino, and the Planet Exotica animal park.

About an hour north, the Marais Poitevin Natural Regional Park is a must for boat rides among its peaceful and green waterways, either by guided tour or cruising along gently under your own steam.
