CHAMBRETAUD Au Bois du Cé

Vendee & Charente

Selected primarily because of its proximity to the magnificent Puy du Fou theme park and the fact that it accepts short stays even in its on-site accommodation. It also has a large outdoor and indoor pool, ideal for a swim at the end of a busy day sightseeing. The site is situated in the heart of the Vendee countryside right next to the old railway station of Chambreteau where a passenger steam train still operates for tourists from June to September. Not recommended for long stays because of some road noise.
