Camping Domaine des Charmilles

Camping Domaine des Charmilles with Canvas Holidays

This 4* campsite opens in mid April until mid September. Further down the page we have listed the facilities which Camping les Charmilles has, and also the best methods of getting there by train, plane or ferry.

Les Charmilles is a super, well maintained campsite nestling within an oak wood, close to the charming town of Fouras. Domaine des Charmilles sits on the Fouras peninsula, in the lee of the Île de Ré and Île d’Oléron. There is plenty here for all members of the family. For a start, we highly recommend the fantastic leisure pool complex with indoor pool, outdoor pool, toddlers’ pool, water slides, bubble bath and more besides — one of the core elements of a great holiday! This campsite has an outstanding beach location.

Yes, just 3 kms away are 5 lovely beaches at Fouras, the biggest being the Grand Plage. This beach is great for children with its gently sloping shores and calm waters. For extra reassurance, the beach has lifeguards during July and August. 

You won’t be able to tear the children away from the play areas at Domaine des Charmilles: there’s a playground where they can make new friends, and even a bouncy castle. The entertainment laid on for the little ones is great fun, too. But grown-ups are not left out at this campsite! There are plenty of activities to keep you occupied in the evenings, ones that every guest on the site can enjoy.

Round and about

The surrounding area is rich: Fouras (3 km away) offers the most beautiful sandy beach on the peninsula. La Rochelle is within reach, too: famous for its old harbour, of course, but also for its medieval towers. Rochefort is absolutely worth visiting, as it is the home of Vauban fortress and the old royal ropeyards, which are brilliant to see. Bumble around the market before taking the boat down to the renowned Fort Boyard.
