La Roche Posay We (2 persons and 1 dog) stayed for 7 nights at the end of May 2022. The site is large with swimming pools, bar and restaurant. The site was fairly busy at the weekend because it was a bank holiday. From Monday onwards it was deserted. The bar and restaurant were closed Monday and Tuesday. The pitches are large and separated from neighbours with large hedges and trees Many pitches are in full shade which is ideal in July and August but not so good in May. Fortunately we had a pitch with late afternoon shading which was ideal. The site is well maintained and the toilets. showers etc are kept clean without any closure. We were able to walk the dog around the site because it was so empty. There is a nice dog walk through the river gates at the side of the river, where the canoeing is done Turn right through the river gates and the path takes you towards the town, although most of the route is via a one way road with adjacent pedestrian and cycle path. It takes about 20 minutes to get into the town. Turn left and the river path follows the edge of the racecourse. The town has a small weekly market on Tuesday which had many food stalls. There is a small park on the right as you enter the town called Parc des Confluences. Several water features that the dog appreciated . The Parc thermal near Le pavilion rose is a nice place for a picnic under the shade of the trees. The dog had a nice bath in the water feature in front of Le pavilion rose. What better place for a bath ? The town also has a beach adjacent to the river, all 10 metres of it. The dog enjoyed the water. Nice picnic area behind it. All the forementioned are within walking distance of the site. Further afield, using 2 or 4 wheels, I recommend Angles Sur l'Anglin. It's about 15km distance. Park in the top village near the church and view the bottom village and river and bridge from the viewpoint Walk down to the river and cross the bridge for lovely views of the castle Whilst on that side of the river, call at Salon de The No 15 for a pot of tea and Bakewell tart.
