Camping L’Ocean, Avenue d’Angoulins, F-17340 Chatelaillon Plage, Tel 0546568797

To Find Site:- Leave D137 at Chatelaillon Plage exit and at roundabout take fourth exit back under D137. Take road towards Angoulins and Camping L’Ocean is signed on the left.

Camping L’Ocean is in a residential  area on the edge of Chatelaillon Plage. There are 97 pitches all of which are for touring units. Pitches are on grass and are of a reasonable size divided by trees, although they tend to be longer than they are wide. Electric points are rated at 10amps and use CEE17 blue connectors, although it might be wise to check for reverse polarity. Water points are dotted around the campsite although the only grey water disposal is at the toilet block. There is no motorhome service point. There is one central toilet block which is of a nice standard but contains a mixture of Standard unseated and Turkish toilets with no toilet paper provided. Whilst the toilets are unisex the showers are separated male and female. There is good provision for dish and clothes washing sinks, including a couple of lowered ones for wheelchair users. The site does have a bar/restaurant although this is only open in July and August but bread can be ordered from reception from 1st of June. The campsite has an interesting fresh water swimming lake surrounded by a sandy beach with ample sun loungers. For children there is a small playground as well as table tennis tables. Site wide WiFi is available at an extra charge. Reception is closed over the lunch period but there is ample off road parking outside the barriers. Outside of the peak season the site accepts the ACSI discount card.

For many the advantage of this site is its closeness to the sea which the campsite claim to be a 500 mts walk away although personally I feel that is an optimistic estimate although still walkable.  Chatelaillon Plage has a lovely long traffic free promenade which can be used by walkers and cyclists. There are also many other cycle ways near to the site. La Rochelle is not far away as also is the Ile d’Re. For those not wishing to use their cars there is the alternative of public transport and the railway station is within walking distance. For shopping there are a couple of small supermarkets in the town with two larger ones on the outskirts.
