Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Not too far for a trip to Puy du Fou theme park

  • Hit the heights with the amazing treetop adventure course

  • Hire bikes and explore the local area

Imagine staying with your family in the grounds of a stunning French château and deciding between a round of mini golf or a spot of paint balling to fill your days.

Stay at Château La Forêt and you’ll enjoy modern facilities alongside an authentic French atmosphere, with the lovely old village of St Julien des Landes nearby. Spend the afternoon relaxing on your shaded pitch or get active with a spot of tennis, horse riding or by testing your water wings with windsurfing or dinghy sailing on the nearby lake. Occasional evening entertainment is provided by the animation team throughout July and August, and there is an excellent French restaurant here, together with a takeaway including a pizzeria.

A lovely site in the grounds of a beautiful chateaux. If you enjoy peace and tranquillity, this is the site for you. Although, there is a fantastic tree-top trail including zip wires for those in need of a thrill! Lovely covered pool plus an outdoor pool (a bit chilly though!). In conclusion, a beautiful site with enough amenities to keep the family occupied but if you just want to sit and read, you can find a peaceful spot.

Overall had a great time however the journey was terrible this was solely down to the coordinates missing a digit in the euro camp holiday details, we should have arrived at 3pm but we didn't get to our camp until 11pm! So it cost us not only in monitory terms it cost us an afternoon and evening!
