Although we are in a rural location, we are only 10 minutes drive away from Ruffec with all amenities.
This is an ideal stopover location. We are approximately half way between the ferry ports and Spain and Portugal.There is easy access to the main route to South of France, Spain and Portugal. The N10 non-toll motorway is 10 minutes drive, the A10 motorway is 30 minutes drive away.
Dogs are welcome.
The campsite is situated on the edge of Grosbouth, a peaceful hamlet in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region (was Poitou Charente) in South West of France. Here you can really experience the tranquility of French rural living. Long hot summers and a warm spring and autumn means outside dining is possible from April till the end of October. With no light pollution we have the most amazing clear night skies. We are surrounded by farmland and small woodland.
We are well located for Cognac, La Rochelle, Futuroscope / Poitiers and Angouleme.

READY FOR GLAMPING? Stay in one of our 6 metre luxury Bell Tent. It comfortably sleeps up to 4 people with 1 king and 2 single beds. Next to the Bell Tent is your own fully equipped cooking cabin.
