Camping Les Etangs Mina
Camping Les Etangs Mina is a two star site owned by a young friendly couple who have a young and dynamic team to ensure your holiday is enjoyable.
Facilities include a grocery and bread shop, bar and snack bar with takeaway service, swimming pool (with children's pool) and entertainment in peak season for both adults and children. This includes themed dinner evenings, karaoke and disco evenings.
This site has the added attraction of being based around three lakes which are available for fishing or simply to enjoy a leisurely stroll along the shady paths that surround them.
There is a small fee payable for fishing throughout the season. The lakes are well stocked with trout, carp, pike, eels and roach.
Camping Les Etangs Mina has a lovely countryside feel to it whilst still being only some 12-15 miles from the many coastal resorts and places of interest in this popular Charente-Maritime region. It is situated in a rural area close to the small villages of Saint Sornin and Cadeuil.
Royan (19km) has many fine shops and restaurants, a lovely seafront and beach as well as a colourful yachting marina. La Palmyre, in addition to its safe sandy beaches, has an excellent zoo which is simply a must to visit.
St Palais is also a small seaside town close by with some lovely beaches and clifftop walks.
Also close to hand are the small market towns of La Tremblade with its port, famous for its oyster beds, and Saujon with the river Seudre flowing through it.
The town of Rochefort, (20km) steeped in maritime history, and the popular Ile d'Oleron reached by a toll free bridge, are also well worth a visit.
A little further away the charming town of La Rochelle with its ancient walls and old port, the Roman town of Saintes, the brandy distilleries of the old town of Cognac and the major city of Bordeaux all make for interesting day excursions.
