Camping with kids in France: Village des Demoiselles

Updated: Aug 11, 2023

France (on the border of Burgendy). Charming campsite with unique accomodations.

Final verdict: Recommended (4/5)

The it factor: 4/5

Its a magical and peaceful camping village with pretty remarkable accomodations. It has all you need for a chill camping with kids with a touch of fun - playground, pool, jaccuzi, bar and table tennis and more. Set in nature and with amusement park / zoo Le PAL nearby, it's a real gem. It is only lacking better food options.

The fun factor: 4/5

The real highlights of this place are the accomodations themselves. Boats, witches huts, barrels and colorful caravan houses - just being among them feels like being in a fairy tale land. You can even stay in a boat anchored in the middle of the lake for the added the experience of rowing back and forth from your "room".

The playground is rather basic but does the job. There is also a second outdoor play area with a trampoline, animals (sheeps, lamas, donkeys) and in the summer, raspberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant bushes. You can also bring kids bikes as the camping site is safe to explore on the (terrain) bike.

On very hot days you can use the pool which has a fence around it. And if you manage to get swim-time to be supervised by your partner, you can indulge in some me-time in the nearby jaccuzzi.

If you feel like exploring, there are bike paths, walking paths, vineyards and even a combined, 2-in-1, zoo & amusement park ( Le PAL) nearby. If that's not your style, you also have plenty of castles to explore.

The comfort factor: 4/5

Huts and boats are rustic but elegant and well crafted. All have bathrooms inside and some also have kitchens. Just be aware that you are on a camping site, in the nature so expect some uninvited guests in your rooms - spiders, insects etc. I would recommend bringing some bug sprays or candles with. Tip: if possible request an accomodation with mosquito nets as not all of them seem to have it.

The boat we stayed on had no air condition. As we could not open the window without risking insects invasion , the room got very hot at night.

The food factor: 3/5

Breakfast is continental and basic - jams, cold cuts, yoghurts etc. No eggs and no vegetables and no lunch or dinner (although there is a barbeque on site). As a camping site, they cater to people who prefer to make their own meals. There are some restaurant in a nearby town if you want something more elaborate or don't feel like cooking.

What wins points however is the quite well equipped bar by reception.

The value for money factor: 4/5

The boats are quite pricey but the huts aren't so you can enjoy it even on a budget. It is definitely something different and for us that was worth it.
