Camping Domaine des Forges is a large open site set in the grounds of a 16th century manor house. This is a great base for cycling as it's close to La Vélodyssée, the Atlantic Coast route that passes a short ride away, and just north of La Rochelle, where La Vélodyssée crosses with La Velo Francette to take you to the Marais Poitevin – and its maze of waterways – and on to the Loire. See here for more on bike routes in the area. Camping Domaine des Forges offers a real fun selection of pools and slides for all ages, along with a free children's club. The on-site restaurant is highly regarded and also does takeaway, including that old French staple, moules frites. In addition to the pools, a large fishing lake is available for guests.
