And don’t forget to take a break on the vast beach of Châtelaillon, south of La Rochelle, perfect for savouring a gorgeous ice cream with the ocean waves right at your feet!
Once back at the campsite, your little adventurers-to-be will be eager to meet up with their holiday friends in the campsite’s free mini clubs. Where better to enjoy a host of new activities in the great outdoors!
