The Owner Says
These large mobile homes, Cosalt Rimini and Willerby Winchester are great for families and groups of friends alike.
Both have a lounge area, dining area, 3 bedrooms consisting of a double bedroom and 2 twin-bedrooms. All of the bedrooms are equipped with duvets and pillows – but please bring your own bedding or choose this as an additional extra when booking.
Each mobile home has a fully equipped kitchen with a built in oven and grill, gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, pots, pans, crockery, cutlery and glasses. There is also a television which is for the use of DVDs only. A hairdryer is also provided.
Both mobile homes are double glazed and have central heating for the cooler months of the year.
During the summer months enjoy some al fresco dining on your private terrace, where you can enjoy a BBQ or your morning pastries in the tranquility of your own patio.
Situated in the beautiful countryside of Charente, this spacious (20 acres), rural campsite sits on one side of a pretty lake. With all the amenities you could wish for, it's family-owned and run, which just serves to underline its greatest assets – pure, homespun tranquility yet with enough in the way of facilities and activities to make you never want to leave.
Fresh bread and pastries can be ordered each evening for next day collection at reception – a French camping must – plus there's plenty of tourist info stashed alongside the main desk, along with local walking and cycling maps, board games and puzzles. To top it off, there's even a mobile beauty therapist who drops by from time to time!
It's a convivial place, with regular events during summer, including live music evenings, dedicated food evenings focused on things like moules-frites and BBQs, and a popular boules tournament every Sunday afternoon. Plus there's fishing on the lake and an abundance of wildlife around the site. The neighbouring village of St-Amant-de-Boixe is worth a visit, home to a majestic 12th-century abbey church and some lovely nearby woodlands for walking, and the regional capital town of Angouleme is only a 20-minute drive away. That is, of course, if you can tear yourself away.
About Camping Marco de Bignac
Suitable ForTents, caravans, campervans, couples, families, groups and dogs all welcome.
NearbyIt's a 20-minute drive to the city of Angouleme, capital of the department of Charente, where you'll find an alluring old district of narrow streets and small squares, ancient ramparts, a cathedral and castle – and lots of appealing pavement cafés and restaurants too. Closer to the site, you should visit the abbey at St-Amant-de-Boixe, the ruined ancient Roman amphitheatre at Les Bouchauds, and, to the north, the lovely old chateau and mill town of Verteuil-sur-Charente. In the opposite direction, consider making the short trip to the river beach and water sports area of St Yriex, where you can go swimming, canoeing and sailing. There's also the old town of Cognac. There's good swimming in the river here but it's most famous, of course, for its cognac producers, where you can sign up to guided tours and tastings.
Food & DrinkThere is a bar and restaurant on site, which also does takeaways. Otherwise, nearby restaurants include the traditionally French Le Taillefer (05 45 39 70 39) in Montignac, 5km away; Les Nymphéas (05 45 21 52 96), a simple, good-value brasserie in Marcillac Lanville, 10km away; or, in Angouleme, Angolo d’Italia (05 45 90 51 74), an excellent local Italian, or Chez Paul (05 45 90 04 61), which serves good (mainly French) food and has a garden.
