We have been camping across Europe since 1978 and have never enjoyed such fantastic facilities as at La Forge. The showers and toilets were better than home! Lovely pool and a great locations as well as thoughtful and good natured hosts. We pity anyone who has been here first and then moves on to savour the dubious delights of a good many sites in France and elsewhere.

Highly recommend this site if you like rural settings, peace and quiet, but still within easy access of fabulous old French villages, towns, cities, sea and Chateaux, a fabulous area of France. Very large supermarket less than 10Km away in Matha.

Colin, the owner, was great, giving lots of help and pointers, including a weekly newsletter of local events which was great.

The site facilities are excellent and the swimming pool was an essential delight given the beautiful weather.

We were a group of 3 families and had a fabulous holiday at La Forge :)

This was our fourth visit to La Forge with friends. As other reviewers say the site is peaceful and kept so well. As always Colin and Ann are fantastic hosts looking after us so well and providing a wealth of knowledge about the local area. This year Colin branched out into a fantastic two minute Olympic update!

Kids large and small enjoy the pool and the surrounding area. Recommend the boulangeriein in next village, the brocante and the wine from siecq.

Even after four years we discovered new things in the area. This year, great beaches, a fantastic inland lake with beach ideal for infants and young children and restaurants.

We certainly would return.

Arrived at this rural site not knowing what to expect.

The site is brilliant if you want peace and quiet lovely area not to far from some lovely places around.

Due to the heat we spent a day visiting and a day of rest at the lovely pool side and chilling.

Would suggest a visit if you are in this area.

We traveled all the way from Scotland and would do it again.

Excellent toilet facilities and the owner very helpful.

Cant ask for anymore. Thanks for my time there just not long enough.

Just returned from 3 weeks at this site. Lovely site, very relaxed and everyone was friendly. Pool is lovely just the right size and temperature, always clean and tidy. When we arrived (during a thunderstorm) pitches were smaller than we are used to but we had a twin axle caravan, an awning and a large table which all fitted on fine.

Colin and Ann keep the site lovely and clean. They know everything about the area and kept us well informed about what was happening during our stay. Toilets, showers and washing area kept nice and clean. Washing machine available with honesty box.

We found a lovely beach at Fouras (thank you Colin!) Takes just over an hour to get there. Saintes is a lovely city and the cathedral is worth a visit, about 40 minutes from site. Cognac was nice but pouring with rain when we visited!

Travelled to zoo at Royan, lots of different animals and very close interraction with them, feeding elephants, zebra and giraffe. Big cats all looked well but needed much bigger enclosures. Gets very busy so need to get there early.

Had a lovely week at this little site, situated on the edge of a small village. Colin and Ann are great hosts with lots of knowledge about what to see and visit in the local area. There is no wifi at the campsite.

There is a very nice swimming pool on site. Toilet / Showers are very clean and new. There is also a washing machine available. There are no playgrounds, clubs etc. But the children on site at the same time as us were having a ball!

Pitches are in 2 areas, there's some with small hedges separating them and a small field without marked pitches.

Whilst there we visited the Courvoisier factory at Jarnac, another local cognac producer, chateaus at Crazannes and Dampierre and a day out in La Rochelle.
