Six pitches in lovely two-acre meadow with beautiful views

Near La Châtaigneraie, Southern Vendée


Situated on the edge of a small hamlet, in the lovely rolling hills of the Vendée, the two-acre camping meadow has beautiful views over the surrounding countryside.   Tranquil and secure, there is no road adjacent, the only access being through our old farm courtyard.  With a maximum of six vans/tents, there is more than enough space to pitch wherever you like and a 6amp electricity supply can be provided to the favourite areas.

You can find us on the map almost exactly half-way between Les Sables d'Olonne and Poitiers (mostly D949bis) and La Rochelle is approximately 1hr 10mins to the south-west.

The hamlet of La Viollière is just 2kms outside the village of Breuil Barret, which has a bar/restaurant, boulanger/épicerie, tennis court, lovely old church and hairdressers!   There are several marked walks which begin from the village centre. 

Supermarkets, banks, shops, more bars and restaurants and a good outdoor swimming pool are to be found at our nearest town, La Châtaigneraie (6kms).  

The local leisure lake is just minutes away, popular for fishing and its woodland picnic areas.  A café and small pool opens during high season - pedaloe hire and childrens Mini Park with bouncy castles, tramolines  etc.

The area is full of interesting places, such as the picturesque medieval village of Vouvant or Fontenay le Comte (ancient capital of the Vendée), the donjon (castle keep) and medeival garden at Bazoges en Pareds and the lovely forest and lakes of Mervent.  The tranquil water ways of the Venise Verte and Puy du Fou (famous parc of Vendée history) are both about 45 minutes drive.   There are many local activities  too, including walking, cycling, horse riding, boating, swimming and, for the more adventurous, micro-lite 'baptism' flights, go-karting and tree-top adventure courses.  Also visits to local chateaux, museums,  markets and small wine producers!

Further afield, it is only 1hr 15mins drive to the lovely long, sandy beaches of the west coast and Il de Ré, 1hr 30mins to Saumur, chateaux and vineyards of the Loire and about the same distance to Poitiers with Futuroscope.  The distilleries of Cognac are also within reach.

                                                      Two bedroomed cottage also available - £190 - £350  p/w                                                                Click for details :   Charming Country Cottage
