Aire Naturelle de Camping Le Verger
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We stayed the first week in July. The weather was fantastic 37c with a very welcome wind. The campsite is beautiful, set in an orchard and you could camp anywhere you liked. We had an electric hook up which was a bonus. Also free wi-fi. The toilets, showers and washing facilities were modern and kept spotless. The owners sylvain and Catherine are warm and welcoming with nothing too much trouble. Their dog youki is lovely very friendly and no trouble when he goes visiting everyone. It's only about 10 minutes to La Rochelle by car, would not recommend cycling there as very busy roads closer you get. Very nice cycling tracks around and bikes can be hired at the campsite. We would highly recommend going if you want a beautiful rural campsite with no swimming pool no slides and no static caravans. We will go back without a doubt.

Reviewed 12 July 2013

We had a wonderful week as privileged guests of Sylvain and Catherine in the garden of their home, which is a garden and orchard, rather than a campsite. Our holiday would have been nothing without the assistance of Sylvain in finding us the places we visited, the wine we tasted and even phoning ahead to let the Viniers know we were coming. Sylvain sent us to the islands and the inlands and we had the most wonderful camping holiday. We had our choice of pitches although they could hardly be called that as we were allowed to go where we wanted. The toilets and showers were spotless and we never had to wait for a shower or hot water to wash our dishes. Our tent was shaded by some of the trees which was wonderful as it was extremely warm weather and Sylvain always checked when we returned that we had enjoyed our trips out which was very thoughtful. For Sylvain and Catherine, you are honoured guests camping in his garden, you can pick his fruit from the many trees as you wish and just a truly wonderful place to chill out. It was easy to find, Sylvain's directions were simple and direct and the house and garden are set in a beautiful part of France, only a few minutes from La Rochelle and the coast as well as easy access to the main roads if you want to travel further south, as did we. The nearest village, only a few miles away has a supermarket, wonderful boulangerie and patisserie so we never had to go far for food. Our electrics (when Sylvain worked out for us how to use them) worked beautifully and we were able to run our Smoothie maker to enjoy our fruit in the morning. What more could we have asked. We could not fault either the location, Sylvain and Catherine's help nor the beautiful garden/orchard in which we were privileged guests.
