Activities

Go fishing in the Etang d'Or lake, just next to the campsite. For this, you need a fishing permit issued by the French fishing federation but they're on sale at the campsite reception, just ask the staff and they'll sort you out. There aren't any fishing rods for hire though, so be sure to bring one with you. However, they do hire bikes and have a large map showing some of the best local routes. Head into town – the former royal city of Rambouillet – where you can visit Château de Rambouillet (0033 1 3483 0025) or the Palais du Roi de Rome. The former features a magnificent garden and the Chaumière aux coquillages (shell cottage), which is home to one of the most beautiful shell and mother-of-pearl decors in Europe.

Food & Drink

The café-restaurant opens for breakfast or you can order fresh bread and pastries the evening before, collect it in the morning and eat it back at the tent. Meals generally start at around €10 and there are freshly produced pizzas (made with organic flour and tomatoes) cooked in a wood-fired oven. BBQs are available for anyone to use in the communal areas dotted around the site.
