Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Explore the ice cream parlours of Tranche-dur-Mer

  • 300 metres from a brand new leisure centre

  • Hit the road with Lifecycle bike hire and tours

Looking for the ideal base to get out and enjoy the ambience of France? Settle into Bel and you’ll be ideally placed to explore the resort of La Tranche-sur-Mer.

This family-run parc is small and relatively quiet, yet it still offers you a lovely swimming pool as well as a superb Scandinavian-style play area, and the kids will love the regular visits from Monsieur Camembert the clown. When it’s time to explore away from parc, you’ll find the town of La Tranche-sur-Mer on your doorstep, offering a wide choice of cafés and restaurants. Or if a day at the beach is in order, you’ll only have to stroll 500 metres to find a wonderful sandy spot where you can try out a spot of windsurfing. If you need to stock up on any holiday essentials, you’ll find a large supermarket next to the parc.

Furthermore, just 200m down the road is L'Aunisceane water complex, with heated indoor and outdoor pools, plus lazy river and large waterslide - perfect if the weather isn't up to much!

      Lovely small family friendly park but unfortunately la tranche has a by pass road which you can hear all night every night. It is a constant drone with mopeds buzzing by as well. It's a real shame as the parc has a curfew which everyone abides by so the parc is basically silent between 10.30 and 7 which means you here the road even more!

      Kevin

      We travelled with our 2 children (5 and 7) and all loved this parc - so much so that we are goping back next year. Its small, very firendly and close to the beach and supermarket.

      We had great weather so spent a few days on the local beaches - there are a few to choose from, which are all quite different in terms of how busy they are and the activities available. We also explored the local area and had a day in La Rochelle which is highly recommended.

      This parc doesn't have evening discos etc, which was great for us as just walking into town or having a bbq at the tent whilst sampling the wine was more than enough. There is a kids film on each evening, ours went to this a couple of times and loved watching a film outside.

      All in all a great fmaily holiday with enough to keep all entertained as long as don't mind venturing off the parc.
