Alan Rogers Review

L’Orée du Bois has 429 pitches of about 100 sq.m. in a very spacious, pinewood setting. There are 130 for touring units, mainly scattered amongst the permanent chalets and tents. They include 40 large pitches with individual sanitary facilities (in blocks of four with shower, toilet, washbasin and dishwashing sink). Pitches are on flat, fairly sandy ground, separated by trees, shrubs and hedges and all have electrical connections (6A, some Europlugs). The forest pines offer some shade. This is a family site with an excellent aqua park amongst the amenities as well as a splendid children’s playground.

The site is lively in high season when it can be noisy but it is tranquil in low season. Sandy beaches (with lifeguards in season) are fairly near, plus opportunities for walking, riding or cycling in the 10,000-hectare Forêt de la Coubre. The site is used by several tour operators.


Four main toilet blocks include some washbasins in cabins. Three have a laundry and facilities for disabled visitors. Shop. Excellent bar, restaurant, crêperie and takeaway service, heated swimming pools (all open as site), water slide and paddling pool (trunks, not shorts). Large play areas, boules, football and basketball. Games room and TV lounge. Gym equipment. Bicycle hire. Discos. Communal barbecues provided in special areas only. Internet access. WiFi throughout (charged). Entertainment for adults and club for children (high season). Tree-top adventure park (adjacent, owned by site).
