The area around the Baie de Chandorat campsite.

Major sites just a stone’s throw away

The Baie de Chandorat campsite is located in Barzan, surrounded by vines and famous for its Gallo-Roman archaeological remains. The Fâ site is unmissable, with its guided tours and museum, open since 2005. The fortified village ofTalmont-sur-Gironde, classed as one of the most beautiful villages in France, is just 3 kilometres from the campsite: a former English stronghold, this charming village, with cobbled streets is home to a remarkable Romanesque church which faces the ocean, a museum and magnificent view points. You’re just a few minutes in the car from the seaside resorts of Royan and Saint-Georges-de-Didonne. Vast sandy beaches and inlets hidden from view await you there. Lively summer evenings see night markets, concerts, or children’s shows. Only a short distance from your pitch or mobile home, explore the amazing troglodyte caves in Meschers-sur-Gironde, and the Mortagne belvedere, with its impressive view over the estuary.

Something for everyone

With land and sea, vines and the ocean, Charente-Maritime offers a wide range of activities. In particular, our Baie de Chandorat campsite is ideally located between marshes and beaches, on the shore of the largest estuary in Europe. Nature lovers can discover the many bird species who find a home in the ‘Mortagne Camargue’, or explore the area on foot or by bike, on contrasting paths covering cliffs, vineyards and marshes, or simply recharge their batteries in the pine forests. With its renowned seaside resorts, the region is also perfect for water activities, such as swimming, fishing in fresh or salt water, discovering the estuary by boat, trips out to sea, and of course sailing, surfing, diving, or just relaxing on the beach. The typical villages surrounding Barzan-Plage are full of craft shops. Go and meet local producers to discover and taste samphire, mussels and oysters, wines, pineau and cognac, or the best unrefined salt! Direct selling gives you access to quality local produce, and you can learn about the region’s traditional trades.
