Camping le Futuriste In Poitou-Charentes
Camping le Futuriste is a French campsite open all year in Poitou-Charentes and is in a very convenient location for visiting the Futuroscope theme park and you even have a lovely view of this from theme park from the site itself.
When you arrive you are provided a leaflet in different languages, which details the regulations for the campsite and you are given a code that you have to input at the entrance in order to raise the barrier to access or leave the campsite. And we would say that it is an idea to actually read this leaflet, as it gives opening times of the facilities along with information like where the rubbish bins are located, which we initially found by walking around!
The pitches on this campsite in France are of a good size and there are pitches for caravans, tents and motorhomes, but there are quite a few pitches that do not have electric hook-ups, so it would be an idea to check availability because it is a popular campsite due to its location being close to Futuroscope. Also, the pitch we had was the old style European plug, so make sure that you have an adapter.
The facilities with dedicated disabled access are exceedingly well maintained and heated when needed, and we all found that the showers were very powerful with unlimited hot water, however, all the sanitary facilities do close each evening at 10.30pm and do not open again until 7am, which we actually found very difficult and too long in our opinion, especially when you consider that the games room with billiards table, video games, etc is actually open until past 11pm.
You will also find a really nice outdoor swimming pool complex that is actually heated, has a water slide and a separate childrens pool, but do take note that as with many campsites in France, shorts are not allowed, only proper swimming trunks. Mind you, Camping le Futuriste is looking at adding an indoor swimming pool, which will be great for those days when the weather is not so good.
Other activities include a nice childrens playground, table tennis tables and a multi-sports court for basketball, etc plus this is a French campsite with fishing available for free on the small private lake, which is an ideal way to relax, but there is also a bar and snack bar along with a restaurant that is open of an evening, so you do not have to worry about cooking every day, and again everything was spotless and in pristine condition, making this a great place for a family camping holiday in France.
