In spite of horrendous weather, this has to be the best camping experience ever. After a hot, long drive down, we were greeted by Ian and Helen and two ice cold beers. Very hospitable, friendly and helpful. They couldn't do enough. The site has excellent facilities, including a communal fridge/freezer, which was most useful. Our experience changed with the weather, however, and the intense heat changed rapidly to the worst storms and rainfall the locals had seen for many years. Although our tent held up pretty well, Ian and Helen offered us their Gite for our final night, which was an immense relief and meant we got a good nights sleep, in spite of the weather, before pressing on South. The site is quiet and peaceful, although there is some life in the locality if you look for it. In terms of the site and Ian and Helen, however, Grande Vigne cannot be beaten for location, friendliness, cleanliness and kindness to two wet, weary middle aged campers.

Absolutely Excellent on all fronts. Will definitely return.

This isn't like a campsite, it's like staying with friends. I can't say anything bad, very clean (spotless)nice level pitch with manicured lawn and well trimmed hedges (the best we have seen) lots of fruit trees, overdosed on cherries during our stay which was longer than we planned as it is so peaceful, walked through the local village in the evening and there are hardly any cars on the road. Short drive to the local market town. I am sure that we must have been blessed to find this little site. It was a shame to leave.

Every thing you could want if you are looking for peace and quiet but still within a short drive of lots of things to do.

A very hospital welcome from the camp site owners. I am tempted to keep this site a secret so it does not become overbooked!

The site has excellent wash facilities and simple flat camp ground easy to gain access to.

Limited to only five places it is as well to book in advance as once more and more people find this site it will be well and truly over subscribed. An ideal stop over on that long journey south.

Ian and Helen have only owned this site for 11 weeks and it is the friendliest and cleanest site I have ever visited. It is small and but has everything you need: loo paper, soap, towel, washing up liquid. The bathroom was of hotel standard. Also reasonable priced.

The web site says that a baker visits 3 times a week, but as he wasn't going to arrive until to late for us, Ian and Helen brought what we needed from the local supermarket so we had them when we arrived. They also provided ice and a bucket to chill our wine! After a bed disaster, the owner was more than willing to help fix it.

Highly recommend visiting this site

I discovered this site while searching the internet. I was looking for something small, quiet, relaxing but within an easy drive of the Channel Ports. I don't think I could have found a better site.

The facilities on site were well kept, clean and in good repair. Steve and Tracey were great hosts, very helpful and always willing to give advice and assistance.

The site itself is spacious and well tended with ample fruit trees, and hedging. Power hook ups are available although I didn't use these myself.

I can thoroughly recommend this site, and I'm already looking forward to planning next years trip.

We are fortunate enough to be regular visitors to this wonderful site as we store our caravan there throughout the year.

The English owners, Tracey and Steve, are always on hand to provide a warm welcome and a helping hand if needed. Their knowledge of the surrounding area and and, in particular, Tracey's fluent French, is a godsend to UK visitors to this area for the first time.

The camping field or 'orchard; takes a maximum of 5 tents/caravans so there is always plenty of room to spread out without inconveniencing others. Each pitch has its own power outlet and there two water taps within easy reach. The campers shower room is clean and spacious with ample hot water at all times. There is a second, separate, toilet for busy times. Steve opens the above-ground pool during the high season and there is a sitting area as well as a boules pitch and darts for the slightly more energetic.

For families the main attraction is likely to be Futuroscope (about 40 mins) but there are many delightful towns and villages to explore with La Rochelle on the coast only an hour or so away. About 10 mins takes you to the nearest small town Lezay where there is a weekly market and an Intermarche.

If you want night life, bars and other attractions then don't go to Grande Vigne. However if, like us, you appreciate the sort of quiet, peaceful and relaxing atmosphere that rural France is renowned for, then give Tracey and Steve a call.

Happy camping!
