Rochefort, the ideal holiday destination!
All those who have visited it will agree, life is good in Rochefort! A town on a very human scale, proudly displaying the remains of its maritime past and quietly nestling between river and ocean, Rochefort awaits you impatiently. And our Sandaya campsite in the Charente-Maritime is perfectly placed to welcome you with every comfort!
Come and make the most of this luxury campsite: its very special location on the Charente coast, its swimming pools and waterslides, its fully-equipped cottages and its leisure activities for all the family. Travelling with the whole tribe? Our special cottages for large families have all you need! Campsite life may be keeping you busy with its sports grounds, relaxation areas and restaurant, but you still won’t be able to resist getting out and about to discover the surrounding area: Rochefort, of course, but also La Rochelle, the La Palmyre Zoo and the Île d'Oléron!
Visit Rochefort with the family
If there is one place in Rochefort that is totally dedicated to the family, it’s the Arsenal des Mers, an ensemble of 4 sites each as grandiose as it is emblematic of the town. So, ready to live an epic adventure?
Let your journey begin aboard the famous replica of Lafayette’s ship, L’Hermione. Continue with an exploration of the immense Royal Rope Factory, created in the reign of the Sun King and now waiting to reveal all the secrets of the Navy. Then it’s off to play pirates, jumping from mast to mast at the Accro-Mâts adventure park, before ending your day with a visit to the legendary National Maritime Museum. Finally, head back to your campsite for a well-deserved rest!
Visit Rochefort as a couple
The advantage of Rochefort for a romantic visit together? Everything is easily accessible on foot or by bike! From the town centre, follow the meanders of the Charente all the way to the coast. Between dunes and lagoons, you’ll suddenly find yourselves opposite the sublime Charente archipelago. You can’t resist the call of the sea? Then it’s time to weigh anchor!
After a short 30min crossing, disembark on the island of Aix, a little corner of paradise where nature rules supreme. Between strolling hand-in-hand at the water’s edge and visiting the Napoleonic Museum or that of Fort Liédot, time slips past unseen. And that’s exactly what we love about camping holidays with Sandaya!
