Camping Rural Des Marronniers

James, Sarah and family welcome you to 'Camping Rural des Marronniers' in the heart of the rolling countryside of the Poitou-Charentes region of France.

Bookings now being taken for 2017

This is a perfect base for exploring this unspoilt part of France or one of it's neighbours such as the 'Loire' or 'Dordogne'. It is also ideal as a stop over when travelling to and from Spain and Portugal or simply for a relaxing holiday.

  • We are a small, quiet, family run campsite (CL/CS type) and open all year for caravans, tents and camper vans .
  • The site has 6 pitches and is set in 2 acres of meadow of an old farm.
  • We are a working small-holding with animals such as goats, ducks, geese, turkeys and chickens and have fresh produce such as eggs, seasonal vegetables and salad according to availability.
  • There is some shade provided by the conker trees (marronniers) and various other trees dotted around the site, just right for curling up with a good book or for a snooze in the heat of the day.
  • As well as the usual toilet emptying point and fresh water, there is a W.C. and hot water shower in a family bathroom along with washing-up facilities, washing machine, shelter and play area (indoor and out).
  • There is a shop with fresh bread daily only 2km away in Pleuville as well as a very welcoming bar. Other shops, bars and restaurants are available in Charroux, Civray, Savigne and Confolens.
  • WiFi access is available for those who want to stay 'connected'.
  • Electric hook-up is also available.
  • Well behaved dogs are welcome (max 2 per unit).
  • The Charente is a very rural and peaceful area, perfect for sight-seeing, activity holidays or simply relaxing and doing nothing.
  • There are several rivers and lakes within the Poitou-Charentes region which are suitable for all kinds of water sports including swimming, fishing and canoeing and the Atlantic coast is also within easy reach.
