Alan Rogers Review

Situated close to the historic town of Cognac, this municipal site is set in parkland beside the River Charente. It has 163 pitches, 157 for touring, all have 6A electricity (long leads required), ten have hardstanding and a water tap but no drainage. The pitches are separated by shrubs and some hedging, with a variety of trees giving varying amounts of shade. Access for large units is good, though twin-axle caravans are not accepted. There is some noise from the adjacent road. Public transport is available to the town centre (daily July/Aug; Saturdays at other times).

There are many small local producers of fine Cognac and a visit to them should not be overlooked as their prices can be advantageous. Vineyards are in abundance with little roadside chalets offering tastings of Pineau, a Cognac-based aperitif. There are many other interesting things to see and do in this and surrounding areas including Golf amongst the Vines and Le Château des Enigmes (a children’s treasure hunt in a Renaissance castle). Remember that this is also a wine producing region with many growers offering visits to their vineyards. The River Charente flows next to the site and there is direct access for canoeing and small craft.
