In search of oysters on Royan beach

Should you take your first dip in the swimming pool or in the sea? That’s what you’ll be asking yourself when you stay at this campsite in France. The campsite is located on the French coast near Royan, 300 metres from the beach. You can jump straight into the Atlantic! Or you can go to the beach and look for oysters. If you fancy some fresh fish or a ride in a Big Wheel, walk to the harbour town of Royan. You can choose your own camping pitch, a lovely lodge tent or a comfortable mobile home at Campéole Clairefontaine.

The beach at Pontaillac

Campéole Clairefontaine is located in Royan, on the west coast of France in Charente-Maritime. It’s only 300 metres from the beach at Pontaillac, so a perfect location for a dip in the Atlantic. At low tide, equip yourself with a bucket and spade and go in search of oysters and scallops. They’re not difficult to find here.

Wonderful swimming in the shade

The swimming pool has a lovely position among the trees, and close to the entrance. People of all ages can enjoy a swim in the shade. Next to the deep swimming pool there is a shallow toddlers’ pool where even the youngest can splash around safely. There is plenty of space around the pool for an hour in the sun. Choose one of the deckchairs and enjoy the sun!

Fish restaurants in abundance

Play football, basketball or table tennis together? That’s possible on the sports fields at Campéole Clairefontaine. A pizza will go down well after all that sport and you can enjoy a bite to eat in the campsite’s restaurant. But for some fresh French fish you can cycle to Royan in about ten minutes. There you have fish restaurants in abundance! There’s a good chance you will be able to try some oysters. Back on the campsite you can enjoy magic shows and children’s discos during the long French summer evenings.

Glamping in the shade

Glamping in a lodge tent or staying in a spacious chalet; that’s real luxury. The accommodation at this French campsite offers every convenience. You will have your own kitchen and bathroom. You can also choose a bungalow tent or mobile home. The holiday homes are located in woodland and among the trees and bushes. So there will be plenty of cool shaded places during those hot summer days.
Another good point: you can use wifi anywhere at Campéole Clairefontaine (for a payment).

Walk to Royan

Half an hour’s walk will take you to the centre of Royan. You can admire the marina in this harbour town or stroll along the boulevard. Don’t forget a ride on the Big Wheel! There is a wide sandy beach next to the harbour where you can have a lie down in the sand. A trip out in the car will take you to Les Mathes where a twenty minute drive from the campsite will take you to Zoo de la Palmyre. A visit to the zoo is always fun!

Family with children, 12 - 18 years

Mooie verzorgde camping georiënteerd op Franse gasten. Fijne ligging nabij strand. Niet geschikt om met tieners heen te gaan die graag vertier met leeftijdsgenoten zoeken.


Family with children, 12 - 18 years

kleine goed verzorgde camping, maar weinig te doen voor de jeugd. Hadden een dochter van 15 bij ons met vriendin en die hebben zich best wel verveeld. Weinig nederlandse jeugd voor hun
Voor ons prima camping
