Alan Rogers Review

This is a very go-ahead municipal site in a forest, by a lake which is a popular venue for days out, since it has a good bar and restaurant and offers swimming, fishing, boating and sailing and many attractions including the inevitable ‘petit train touristique’. The site has a very French feel and the layout now provides fewer, larger pitches and a better ambience. Of the 143 pitches, 75 are for touring units, all with electricity (10A) and with a good choice of sunny or shady pitches. There are 20 mobile homes, chalets and Romany-style caravans to rent.

A very pleasant site with plenty of opportunities for walking and cycling in the surrounding forest if you prefer to get away from the activities of Sillé-Plage.


Two traditional toilet blocks are well maintained and kept clean; they provide pushbutton showers and some washbasins in cubicles. Baby room and facilities for disabled visitors. Laundry room with washing machine and dryer. Motorhome services. Small shop sells bread, cold drinks ice cream. Play area. Archery (July/Aug). Fishing in main lake and in two other smaller lakes. Free WiFi in reception area.
