Alan Rogers Review
Owners, couple Greg and Nadege, will be pleased to welcome you to their site on the edge of the Sèvre Nortaise and the Marais Poitevin, which is ideal for short or long stays. With canoe and bicycle hire on site you have no excuse for not exploring the local area. In the Deux-Sèvres, the department of discovery, so named because it has two rivers named Sèvre, the Noirtaise and Nantaise, the Venise Verte provides an excellent site. There are 120 flat pitches here with 94 used for touring units, the remainder occupied by 26 mobile homes. The pitches are of a good size, most with 10A electricity, water and drainage, and with some shade.
For a real local flavour, walk into Coulon and taste, and then perhaps buy, some ‘Pissenlit’ dandelion liqueur. You should drink it from a frozen glass and ice cold – it has a unique flavour. Also explore the Marais on foot or by boat or perhaps visit La Rochelle less than an hour away, with its museums, harbour and quayside restaurants.
Modern toilet facilities are of a high standard with free showers. Facilities for disabled visitors. Washing machine and dryer. Motorhome services. Heated swimming pool (15/6-15/9). Play area. Bicycle hire. Boules area. Fishing. WiFi on part of site (free).
From Niort take N11 towards La Rochelle. Turn on the D3 towards Sansais and then north on D1 (Coulon). At traffic lights head towards Centre Ville (Coulon) at mini-roundabout turn slightly right. Follow Sèvre Noirtaise for 1.5 km. to site on the right. Beware of tight turn after site barrier.Link to campsite location map on google
