Christophe and Rianne welcome you to Camping de la Rivière. Our small campsite has spacious pitches beside the river Vienne. This campsite is a perfect place for people who like peace, conviviality and the French life in a countryside setting. The campsite is situated in the Charente-Limousine region, between the cities of Limoges and Angoulême.
Camping de la Rivière has 25 campsite pitches and rental accomodations. There is also a restaurant which is open from May till September for people from the campsite and elsewhere. We also rent canoes for enjoyable trips on the river Vienne.
The campsite is open the whole year!
We speak French, Dutch, English and German. There is free Wifi across the whole campsite.
At 5 kms from the campsite, in Chabanais, is a large supermarket.
There is a swimming pool on the campsite with a depth of 1.20m. Deckchairs and parasols are available on the terrace around the pool.
Children can have fun playing with others on the campsite. Our facilities include the trampoline, table football and table tennis. For teenagers there is a pool table, midget golf and a large volley ball pitch, and of course we have the French game ‘jeu de boules’ too.
You must take the opportunity to hire one of our kayaks/canoes and canoe down the Vienne with great scenery and enjoyable rapids to negotiate. Also in the area surrounding us are many things to discover via the cycle routes as shown on our little maps. Animals are welcome if they are kept under control and on a lead: your dog may like to go for a swim in the Vienne too.
Each evening throughout July and August, you can order your morning bread and pastries. Then at around 9.15am the bread, croissants or ‘pain au chocolat’ will be delivered to your door.
A washing machine is at your disposal on the site should you need it and barbecues are permitted, either using your own BBQ or borrowing one of ours.
Our bar/restaurant is open each evening and, sometimes at weekends, we feature live bands and musicians for your enjoyment.
