Alan Rogers Review

On the edge of the Marais Poitevin and just six kilometres west of Niort, this is a simple family campsite on the bank of the Sèvre Niortaise river. There are 47 shaded pitches with electrical connections (10A, Europlug) available. The site is conveniently located close to the town centre where there are shops, bars and restaurants as well as a post office and bank. The area is ideal for walking and cycling and Magné is just a short drive (or ride) from several embarcadères, starting point for delightful excursions by boat or canoe along the waterways of la Venise Verte.

One of these starting points is in nearby Coulon, which is also home to la Maison du Marais Poitevin, where you can find out all you need to know about this fascinating area which was given the status of ‘Grand Site de France’ in 2010. There are five exhibition halls, a ‘maraiscope’ (a projection telling the history of the Marais) as well as the obligatory shop and bookshop.

The beaches of the Atlantic coast are an easy drive away, as is the historical city of La Rochelle with its iconic towers and its fashionable shops and restaurants, while beyond is the Ile de Ré.
