Reviewer: Aliandyjames 1 review from this member

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.

Visited last year and went back again this year as we loved it so much last time. The children are already asking if we can go back again next year!

It is a very small site surrounded by fields of sunflowers and sweetcorn and very peaceful. Just what you need for a relaxing holiday. The pool is warm and the children spent many happy hours playing there. It has a lovely big shallow end making it ideal for my six year old to be able to stand in too unlike some other places we've been to.

As usual everything was spotless and the flowers everywhere made the site look very pretty. Colin and Ann were both very welcoming as always and we had a great holiday.

Already looking forward to next year!

This is a fantastic little site, with an extremely friendly atmosphere. It has a real family feel about it and with only a few pitches you soon get to meet all of your fellow campers.

We only stayed for 2 nights on our way down to Agen, but were made to feel so welcome. Colin greeted us with such enthusiasm, and what a brilliant memory for children's names he has!

The pool was a real hit with the children, and so warm they didn't want to get out. The toilet block was lovely and clean and it was a real treat to have a shower screen meaning no wet clothes. Colin was very happy to advise on local information and places to visit, and answered any questions we had.

We were just gutted we couldn't stay longer and enjoy the many things the area had to offer. We will certainly have to visit again!

When I consult a review, I want to know is the site well equipped; are the washing facilities of a very high standard; and is it well run by welcoming hosts? At La Forge, the answer to all the above is a categoric yes. Colin and Anne treat their guests as guests and not just customers; and it is this difference that is the hallmark of their site. We stayed for two nights en route from the Pyrenees to Normandy, and it was the perfect point at which to break our journey, with plenty to see within a short distance on an otherwise long drive. If you decide to book this site, you will not regret it. Though I may regret giving such a positive review, as it will probably not be available when I need it!

This was our second year staying at La Forge and the whole experience of re visiting felt like we were 'coming home' again.

It is a superbly peaceful camp site giving a genuine experience of rural France. Within cycling and driving distance are local villages with shops and restaurants.

The site is child friendly and the pool is great. Le Gicq is small, friendly and fun to explore.

A great place to 'get away from it all' and find some tranquillity.

Much recommended.
