Alan Rogers Review

Bois Vert is a former municipal site, now operated by a campsite group although so far it has changed little. There are 88 pitches of which 69 are for touring, all with electricity (16A) and 30 also with water and drainage. There are 19 mobile homes to rent. Pitches are separated by hedges and there are mature trees providing some shade. The site is on the River Thouet and although there is a secure fence, there is a steep drop to the river bank. Pleasant walkways along both sides and a footbridge close by enable you to walk into the old walled town.

The medieval city of Parthenay is a place of art and history. It is the capital of the Gatine region, an agricultural area renowned for its sheep, farming, dairy products, apple orchards and cattle breeding. This is an ideal destination close to the Marais Poitevan and Venise Verte. In medieval times the city was also one of the important stops on the pilgrims’ route to Santiago de Compostela.
