And why not come and explore Île-de-France when camping with Sandaya this summer?

If Poissy has quenched your thirst for discovery, your family-oriented campsite is perfect for enjoying total relaxation and innumerable activities with all the family. Why not start the day in the water park as you switch off and unwind in the heated swimming pools, then it’s time for a tennis, pétanque or badminton tournament on one of the outdoor sports grounds!
Visit Poissy with the family
On a gorgeous summer’s day, there’s no better way to begin your visit to Poissy than by wandering through the Meissonier Park. In days gone by the parkland belonged to the royal monastery, today the 10ha of this English-style garden are ideal for a stroll with the family, notably along the banks of its pond or through its rose garden. In high season, the children will even be able to explore by donkey for a truly memorable outing!
Before returning to your Sandaya campsite, take a moment to visit the Toy Museum in the former Royal Priory of Saint-Louis, a listed historical monument. An opportunity to see how games and toys have evolved since antiquity; a journey through time certain to amaze the children and maybe even the oldest amongst you!
