Petit camping familial simple et tranquille dans un verger d'arbres fruitiers. Ici pas de mobile-homes, pas d'animations, pas de piscine, juste les bonheur de la nature, des sanitaires propres et confortables et des conseils personnalisés pour visiter la région. Eco-responsable, nous n'appliquons aucun produit chimique sur les arbres du verger, nous trions nos déchets et nous nous inscrivons dans une démarche de développement durable. Pour les amateurs de vélo, La Rochelle est à seulement 8 kilomètres avec une piste cyclable verte et sécurisée. Set in a landscaped orchard, this small campsite has been designed for nature-friendly people. This yard is especially adapted for tents, small caravans and vans without well defined pitches. You can go to La Rochelle, cycling on a cycle path boarding a canal (in 30-45 minutes).

We were recommended this campsite by a couple we met whilst camping in the Dordogne. We mentioned we were looking for somewhere to stay for a few nights in La Rochelle but we were struggling to find something less on the resorty side and more of a traditional campsite. We emailed the owner a couple of days before we wanted to arrive and he booked us in straight away. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner and he showed us around the site on a golf buggy, letting us decide which area we wanted to set up camp. He was so helpful in advising us of his favourite places to go, providing us with maps and marking local areas of interest as we had not visited La Rochelle before. The campsite has borderless pitches so campers are really able to make their pitch their own and everyone was very respectful of each other’s space. I would go as far as to say that the facilities were the best we have used since camping in France. They are mixed male and female, not claustrophobic, they are kept clean, provide toilet paper and....have toilet seats! Which is a comfort that most places we seem to have visited just don’t feel the need to have. Personally, I loved the box where campers where encouraged to leave items they didn’t need anymore, giving them a second home. As it was out last stop, we left our fire pit and some logs in the hope that someone would make use out of them, and save us taking it home. There is a little shop where you can buy groceries, some camping supplies and order your bread and croissants ready to collect the next morning for breakfast, all reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. If you don’t feel like cooking, each night the campsite hosts a different themed food truck. We only sampled the paella which was extremely tasty at €10 for a large pot that we shared between the two of us, and we were also very tempted by the pizza and crepes that were served during our stay. The great location meant that we were within cycling distance of the main port of La Rochelle - bikes are available to hire from the campsite but due to the extreme heat we decided to take advantage of the air con and drive. We were also close to an industrial estate with supermarkets, restaurants and camping shops, but far enough away that you felt like you were in the countryside and not on a modern estate. Previous reviews mention that the campsite is situated between two dog kennels, which if we hadn’t read the reviews, we would not have noticed. Yes, you can occasionally hear dogs barking in the distance, you can also hear chickens crowing, and birds singing, but had we not read about the kennels we wouldn’t have thought twice about it. The owners dog was also lovely, very friendly and quiet and we enjoyed a little daily visit from him! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Camping Le Verger and would certainly return again.

Can’t fault this campsite for back to basics camping. Not at all like a commercial campsite which is just what we are looking for. The owners, and their dog Max, are extremely friendly and helpful. Simple clean facilities.

We spend a very relaxed 10 days there this month and enjoyed the stay, the owners were not overly friendly but polite enough and charged us exactly what they said they would. The big problem with this site is it is situated between two boarding kennels and every morning a dawn chorus of barking would wake us up. Once you learn to live with that it is a nice site. They have a vendor come in every night with local and further away cuisine and apart from the Pizza van night, it was all really good. To be fair we had 4 pizzas and 3 of them were acceptable, just mine was a pile of uncooked soggy dough with some meat chucked on it. Not the fault of the campsite.

We arrived in the area without a reservation, and the campsite in Ka Rochelle suggested we try here. It's a few kilometers (10) outside of town, but it's a lovely green spot, with a small orchard and many van sites in the back. The staff received us warmly and found us a spot even though they were nearly full. The evening food truck (a different one each night!) is a nice add-on if you are traveling light. They also have a small shop on site and (if you order ahead) can provide fresh croissants and baguettes. We had a lovely stay, thank you!

Maybe this camping is beautifully situated and charming. Unfortunately it is not a friendly place for everyone, and the owner (or somebody who behaved like a landlord) behaved against us like an ordinary boor. We came to this campsite in the evening (two families with small children), because the next day we wanted to begin a two-week cycling trip along Velodysey. The campsite is marked Acueil Velo and advertises itself as friendly to cyclists, and on their website we’ve found information that there are no designated areas for tents, and enough space for everyone. There was also an information, that the owner knows what cycling means so every cyclist is welcomed and also that if you need to leave your car during bike trip on Velodyssey - it is a good place to do so. It looked like it is a perfect place to start our trip from there. Moreover, we were informed at camping municipal in La Rochelle, that they are complete, but camping Le Verger is a right place to go and they will have space for sure. What a terrible mistake. When we arrived, it was quite late, but not so late, just after 9 pm. Just after that some people asked as if we are going to come inside and opened us a gate - no idea if they were staff or just guests knowing local rules. Outside the gate there is indeed no place where you would park the car to go to ask the front desk, but just behind the gate there is a clearly marked parking lot and information that you should park your car there. We did so, the reception was closed, so following the information posted on the door we called the phone number posted there. Although we calmly and clearly explained the whole situation, (btw, a thunderstorm and heavy rain was just starting), the owner was extremely nervous and shouted on female member of our travel party who talked to him by phone. He said that the campsite is full and he can not accept us. It seemed like he’s very angry that someone is coming at 9 pm and wants to stay overnight .. . Meanwhile, we realised that in the campground there is plenty of space (especially if there are no designated areas), and we did not need a lot of space – just for 2 tents and just for one night. It was disappointing, but not everyone wants to make money and to be friendly and helpful. Apparently their business is doing well, and the people running this campsite simple can choose right guests... So we decided to leave and started to discuss where to stay overnight instead. It lasted maybe 1 minute or so, but what happened after that, it was shocking and never before and after, in any country in Europe, Asia or Africa (have travelled a little bit in my life) I haven’t experience such a rude behavior of the owner of the campsite, hotel or any other business! An older man (yes the same one whose photo with a cordial smile you can see on the website of the camp) appeared right next to us and rudely yelling at us, literally kicked us out of the campsite area, pulling and pushing us (2 men and woman who tried to talk to him..) We heard that it is a private property owner's master, which we invaded, and we should immediately leave. We heard also that people like us cannot simply come to his camp without a reservation in the middle of the night, and that some guests booked their places before Christmas. The man was accompanied by a woman who also screamed hysterically (fortunately it was difficult to understand since she didn't speak English). Our kids started to cry since they totally couldn't understand what happened and of course we left (or rather escaped since this man was aggressive) immediately. Please decide yourself whether Camping Le Verger is a friendly place with a rustic atmosphere, each guest is received with open arms and there is enough space for everyone. Perhaps that’s a part of rustic atmosphere? I am really happy we couldn’t experience more of this rustic atmosphere and it does not matter that we had to spend this night in cars in the car parking in La Rochelle - it was much more friendly place. I consider it extremely rude - not only to say potential guests "get out of my private land" but also to push and yank someone. My advice is to avoid this place. For the information of TA (and the owner, if he wants to answer something - can't wait to read the explanation because it was impossible to talk to these people) - it was on 12-th August 2015.

Response from Sylvain C, Propriétaire at Camping Le Verger
Responded Aug. 3, 2016
Didn't you noticed that it was more than half past ten? when it is 9h00 in London, it's 10h00 here, in France. You forgot something! You could have been so fine as to phone us a few hours before, we could have organized that differently...hotels can be open 24/24, such small campsite as us, not, sorry. it was during the Francofolies festival, July, peak period fur us, and we have to start cleaning all that at 6h00 in the morning,...Didn't you see we were in pyjamas, going to sleep?
