Huttopia Landes Sud
Huttopia Lac de Sillé, Sillé Plage, 72140 Sillé Le Guillaume, Sarthe, France
Pitches vary wildly across the site. At its furthest point, where the trees are thickest, there’s a real woodland feel and tents spread among the bows with bicycles leaning idle against the trees. Closer to reception, meanwhile, the space is far more open and generally feels a bit more ‘parky’ with motorhomes and caravans in among the larger family tents. There’s an array of glamping accommodation options – in particular safari tent-style lodges in various sizes – and wooden cabins equipped with everything you could possibly.
It’s the activities that this campsite is perhaps most well known for. There’s a whole range possible around the lake, including mountain biking, watersports, swimming, climbing, zip-lines, archery, fishing, and more. Then there are the facilities specific to the campsite itself: ping-pong tables, volleyball courts and bikes available to hire. There’s an indoor area with board games and books in case it rains (though if you’ve headed here from the UK, rain probably isn’t anything to worry about).
The focus is definitely on families but if kids and noise all become a bit too much there’s a pleasant 2km walk through the woods to nearby Sillé-le-Guillaume. The tiny town has a sleepy feel but all the French essentials – cute cafés, excellent delicatessens and an old Château. It’s a quiet contrast to the hive that is Huttopia Lac de Sillé.
