Why stay here ...

A remote, rural site nestled in an ancient forest, Huttopia Lac de Sillé is ideal for peaceful stays in low season and young families in summer. A range of activities is organised for children, from non-motorised water sports on the on-site lake to kite making and treasure hunts. You can buy snacks on site or take your own food into the big communal tent and enjoy a fireside evening with other visitors.

The site is verdant, with well-sized pitches shaded by tall trees. The friendly staff are keen for guests to appreciate the surrounding nature, and will happily share their knowledge of the local flora and fauna.

The Le Mans race track is 45 minutes’ drive, making this site ideal for those keen on motorsport. The impressive cathedral and quaint old town shoudn't be missed either. To the north is Alençon, which has some ornate monuments and interesting museums as well as a good selection of restaurants and cafés.

Lake Views

Travelling at the end of September gives one quite a different view of a site. We travelled at the middle of September and found the site to be quite empty, we had no problem with this and if you are looking for peace and quiet with fabulous views, this is your place. Easy to find - although SatNav took us to a back entrance that was closed - the site has large open pitches - no bushes to define the space, which was great as it was so empty, and we were able to choose whichever spot we wanted. Running your cable across the roads seemed to be the done thing so you could get the best view of the lake. Spotless toilets and showers and empty most of the time. Motorhome facilities easy to use, plenty of space to manoeuver and dogs had a great time with direct access to the lake and many walks in the forests.

Ideal place to break

A lovely location on the Lac de Sille, this site is most popular with campers and people using the onsite bungalows and tents. There were quite a few caravans and the site is relatively level and spread over a wide area. Pitches are marked by a wooden peg, other than that there's nothing to mark your area so people walk through your pitch en route for the toilets etc. We stayed for three nights, it was fairly quiet, although very popular with young families so there was noise from tents, especially on our last night when it had rained almost non stop from 2pm, and several fraught parents got angry with their cold, wet, miserable children in cold, damp tents. Having said that, evening entertainment provided by the camp was very noisy, loud singing and music until 11pm on our first night. Although run by Huttopia, who have a dreadful reputation, I was impressed by the friendliness of the site staff. Be warned, you may find yourself more than 25 meters from electricity, but they do lend extensions if necessary. Again, preferring to use our caravan, we didn't use the sanitary blocks, but ther were cleaned thoroughly, regularly. There is a van selling pizza, frites etc, although we didn't use the en site food, preferring to walk the 15 minutes to one of the lake side restaurants. Food here is mediocre and not up to the usual high standard of French cuisine. The nearby town of Sille has good shops and a Super U supermarket. There are some very pretty villages close by, Le Mans is avout 25 minutes away. I'd stay here again, but only to break up a journey.
