La Forge de Sainte Marie Campsite
La Forge de Sainte Marie is a beautiful estate that, originally was an old ironworks that is over 300 years old, and this particular French campsite can be found in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France, which is most well known for its bubbly of the same name Champagne.
The setting is one of nature and tranquillity in a very unspoilt area with an abundance of wildlife, oak trees, wild orchids, other unusual and rare types of flora and fauna, plus the campsite even has a river running through it.
Being a very family orientated site and able to cater for caravans, motorhomes and tents, you can choose an idyllic pitch by the river that you can fish, or perhaps you would prefer to be near to the childrens playground, or maybe a hard standing pitch instead of a grass pitch, but whatever you decide, the multilingual staff at La forge de Sainte Marie are sure to be able to cater for your needs.
When it comes to facilities, this site is absolutely fantastic, from catering to the needs of babies and young children through to the disabled and your beloved pets are allowed to accompany you. In fact, there are some fabulous walks you can take with your dog on, making your holiday that little more laid back.
Set within the old forge there is a heated indoor swimming pool, so even if it is bad weather you can go swimming, plus others such as the games room with table football, etc, the arcade and pinball machines, a bar and satellite TV for the sports, plus of an evening you could enjoy the fabulous French food served in the restaurant, which also caters for children and high chairs are also available.
For finer weather there are a multitude of activities to enjoy on this campsite in France from trout fishing on the campsite lake to volleyball and the traditional boules through to archery, but this site also has a fantastic entertainment programme from quizzes to trips to a local farm with a BBQ and live music nights through to cheese and wine tasting afternoons, but we cannot forget about the children and yes, there is a Kids Club held each morning, children playgrounds and playing fields.
With so many facilities at La Forge de Sainte Marie and the quality of this campsite, plus the amount of activities you could enjoy in the local area from jet skiing to parachuting or just lazing on a beach, this is a definite must for a family camping holiday in France that you wish would never come to an end!
