Our two luxury bell tents are set up in our large grass camping field and can comfortably accommodate up to four people. They are furnished with 1 king size bed for 2 adults,  for additional people there are 2 single beds available and a cot can be added if required. Bedding and electricity is included with your stay.

Next to the tent is your own private cooking cabin with fridge, gas hob, cutlery and crockery and outside you will also have a barbecue and picnic table. We try to provide everything you need for your camping holiday so if you fly and hire a car or ferry and drive to France all you need is your suitcase.

You will have full use of campsite facilities including a shower block with washing and washing -up facilities, and our swimming pool. Towels are available to hire.

Our campsite is in a peaceful French hamlet called Grosbout. The hamlet is quiet apart from the odd car and tractor going by. Take a stroll around the pretty stone houses and if you happen to see anyone don’t forget to greet them with ‘Bonjour’. You can give a carrot to the neighbour’s always hungry horse or watch the little lambs chase each other around their field in spring.

Bikes are available for your use and we have safe roads surrounding our campsite to go cycling, walking or have a morning jog. Although we are in a rural area we are only 10 minutes drive from amenities: supermarkets, French food markets, restaurants, bars, clothes shops etc.

About Camping La Forêt de Tessé

Laid-back rural camping in the sun, with ancient castles, river swimming spots and petit French cafés within family-friendly cycling distance

We are a small friendly campsite situated in the Charente department of Nouvelle Aquitaine (was Poitou Charente) in the South West of France. The area is the second sunniest after the South of France.

Stay with us and experience the tranquility of French rural living.
