Why stay here ...
This pretty, verdant site is a haven for nature lovers, being perched on the edge of the Sèvre River and close to marshland and canals. It’s friendly owners and staff work hard to ensure guests enjoy their stay. There are fewer amenities than on some sites in the area, but with so much to do nearby it’s seldom a problem. A lovely restaurant offers a range of dishes, and there’s a pool and play area for children.
A perfect area for fishing, the site hires out canoes and bicycles, enabling guests to explore the area in different ways. The views from the canals are picturesque and there are plenty of spots for a picnic along the way. The historic village of Coulon is within walking and cycling distance and offers several cafés and restaurants, and a bus service to the local rail station stops 600m from the site.
