Champ De La Chapelle

The Campsite is 6 hectares of spacious pitches and open areas surrounded by woodland on the edge of the magnificent Forest of Troncais. A calm and safe environment for families but with plenty of activities both on site and in the surrounding area.

60 pitches have water and 10 amp electricity hook-ups and for the wild campers there are 20 large pitches spread over 2 hectares. Separate ladies and gents shower and toilet facilities with a disabled shower and toilet next to the laundry room and dish washing area. Mobile homes and fully equipped tents are available for rent. Daily bread deliveries are made during high season.

The Campsite has a bar/cafe with covered terrace (with free wifi) situated by the swimming p ool. At night this area hosts wine and cheese evenings, camp fires with marsh mallows to toast and is a focal point for the Campsite. The reception has maps and information about local attractions and also a free library with novels in a number of languages.

Elsewhere on the site there is a nine hole 'foot golf' course, volleyball pitch, small children's play area with sandpit and swings. There is a play area for older children with rope bridge and a tree house and even plenty of room to build your own den. For teenagers we have a 'teen club' with table football, PS2 and Wii.

English, French, Dutch and German are spoken by the staff.
