The Owner Says

Situated either overlooking the neighbouring vineyards, overlooking the lake or next to the tree lined plots, these chalets are set within this countryside campsite.
Each chalet has 2 bedrooms, sleeping up to 4 people. There is a fully kitted out kitchen and a shower room and a separate wc.
Every chalet has its own wooden terrace, ideal for sampling the local wine whilst overlooking the vineyards!
On site it's a very chilled vibe, with a small playground area complete with boules pit, with the emphasis very much on watching the natural wildlife on your doorstep.
Enjoy the local walks and cycle routes directly from the campsite, for explore the local towns and villages, some with markets and also night markets (high season).
On site there is a snack bar during the high season, serving local wine and pineau - the local sweet wine traditionally drank as an aperitif!

About Camping La Motte

Suitable For

Nearby

There are several popular walking and cycling routes directly from the campsite and Anja and Ruud are more than happy to give you advice and directions – they know the area like the back of their hands. Each route has also been detailed on their website and there are also a few maps on the site you can look at. To take in the local vineyards, walk the southern route that starts through a forest path that leads, after a kilometre or so, right through the heart of the local vines towards the hamlet of Favorit (you can also extend the walk via Le Gât). Pick of the cycle routes is perhaps the 20-mile Montguyon to La Voie Verte route, which takes in a nice flat cycle path (a former railway line) for about a quarter of the route, plus a good stopping point in Montguyon and at Lac Beau Vallon for a swim (the lake has a sandy beach, an open-air restaurant and cute little playhouses for children). There are plenty of other route options though, so take your pick!

Canoeing is popular on the River Dronne. Parcoul is 12 miles from the campsite – rent canoes from Parcoul Canoe (+33 5 53 90 79 73) – or start further upstream at Aubeterre-sur-Dronne (19 miles from the campsite), where there's a very impressive underground church (+33 5 45 98 65 06). There are also several horse riding schools offering tours within 10 miles of the campsite. Écurie Narolles (+33 6 86 70 10 90), half a mile away, allow you to walk alongside children as a 'guide' whilst they ride smaller ponies. Further afield, meanwhile, recommended day trips during longer stays at the campsite include Bordeaux, Saint Emilion, Rochefort and La Rochelle.

Food & Drink

In the height of summer a snack van appears on the site (operated by a third party) but there are also plenty of great French restaurants nearby. Le Bistrot du Circuit (eight kilometres away; +33 5 46 04 16 96) is located along one of the campsite's recommended cycling routes, as is Aire de loisirs de Beauvallon (+33 5 46 04 22 99). The nearest spot, though, is the little pop-up pizza kiosk Le Kiosque à Pizza (+33 5 46 70 45 64) four kilometres away in Montguyon. Camping La Motte is in a region famous for its wines, from the local Pineau des Charentes to the famous Cognac. Jean Moucheboeuf near the Dolmen offers wine tasting by appointment (+33 5 46 04 19 72) and there's also wine tasting at La Maison du Vin in Blaye, opposite the famous citadel. There's always a market going on somewhere, whatever the day of the week: Try Chalais (19 kilometres) on Mondays (combine it with a visit to the underground church in Aubeterre-sur-Dronne), Jonzac (40 kilometres) on Tuesdays, Coutras (22 kilometres) on Wednesdays, Montendre (22 kilometres) on Thursdays, Ribérac (42 kilometres) on Fridays, Coutras and Jonzac are both on again on Saturdays and Montendre and Jonzac on Sundays.
