Chez Sarrazin campsite

Reference 1623

Chez Sarrazin offers a small campsite with shared swimming pool near Brossac, south west France

Chez Sarrazin camp-site provides a delightful rural experience of France.
There are just 6 generously-sized pitches for
tents, caravans or campers.

We are an ideal stopover for those travelling to and from Spain/Portugal being about 6 hours from the Channel ports and not far from either the A10 or N10 roads.

The campsite is accessed by a chalk track with an incline of about 6 degrees.

The campsite itself is mostly flat and in addition to tents is suitable for small / medium sized caravans (if towed by a suitable vehicle, ideally 4-wheel drive) and small / medium sized RVs.

The campsite benefits from good shade from midday.

The campsite is a tranquil setting (deer and wild boar are sometimes seen walking through the site of an evening) but please note that during the day and evening you will hear trains on the line that is a kilometre away; trains do not operate at night.

  • 2 showers
  • 2 toilets
  • 2 washing basins
  • Washing-up basins
  • A washing machine, ironing-board and iron.

Each pitch has an electric hook-up with a 10Amp supply.

Fast broadband is provided for free on the campsite and around the pool.

Campers have access to a shared, full-depth, in-ground, 12mx6m swimming pool surrounded by an attractive garden and offering sun-loungers, parasols and plenty of shade under the trees.

There is a playground next to the swimming pool with swings, table tennis, croquet, badminton, volleyball, football nets and a variety of other ball and racquet games.

The pool and play area are shared with the Chez Sarrazin Gite guests.

There is a small library and a selection of board games.
