Alan Rogers Review

Set in the tranquil and beautiful natural parkland surrounding a 19th-century château, Yelloh! Village Château La Forêt is a lovely site with 266 large pitches, of which 161 are for touring units. There are also 60 units to rent and 45 pitches are occupied by tour operators. All are on grass and fully serviced including 10A electricity; some are in shady woodland and others, for sun worshippers, are more open. The camping area is only a small part of the 50-hectare estate, with a mix of woodland, open meadows and fishing lakes, all accessible to campers. The many outbuildings around the courtyard have been tastefully converted and include a bar and restaurant in the old stables.

There are two swimming pools, one outdoor, the other heated and covered with slides and a paddling pool, one on each side of the château. Many sports, activities and entertainment are on offer, which should keep everyone satisfied. Children will have a great time here exploring the vast, unrestricted area and sometimes hidden corners of this site in Swallows and Amazons style. The attractive small village with shops and services is within walking distance and the beaches of the Côte de Lumière are just 12 km. away. A varied programme of entertainment for all ages is provided during the season, including activities for younger children, teenagers and adults. In the evening you can enjoy concerts, dancing, karaoké, wine tasting and so much more.
