Alan Rogers Review

Situated just 58 km. southeast of Nantes and a similar distance from the River Loire at Angers and Saumur, this could be a useful place to break a journey or to spend a few days relaxing. Camping Lac de Ribou is a holiday complex in pleasant parkland next to an extensive lake on the outskirts of the busy market town of Cholet. One hundred touring pitches are on undulating land, divided by hedges and with mature trees providing shade. Most have electricity (10A, long leads required on some) and water.

This site was taken over by the Franceloc group in 2014, since when an improvement programme has been put in place. There is a new covered, heated swimming pool to complement the impressive pool complex with its tower, toboggan and flumes for all ages. New mobile homes have also been installed and a new playground is planned. Whilst large, the site has plenty of open space as well as access to the lake, and tall hedges provide privacy for the attractive individual pitches. An entertainment programme is provided in high season; throughout the year, the area has much of interest to offer.


One sanitary block provides preset showers and washbasins in cabins. Facilities for children and disabled visitors. Laundry. Motorcaravan services. Small shop (July/Aug). Bar and snack bar with takeaway (July/Aug). Swimming pool complex with slides, flumes, toboggan and paddling pool. Upgraded indoor pool (from 11/4). Play area. Multisports pitch. Boules. Very full programme of activities for all ages (July/Aug) including archery, art workshop for children, sub-aqua, aquagym. Professional standard cabaret evenings. Communal barbecue. WiFi in snack bar and reception (free).
