The campsite of Le Petit Mas d’Ile, with 15 pitches and 1 pitch for our rental tent, is located across the road from our house in the middle of a beautiful and green environment and with a great view on the hills on the other side of the river La Vienne.
The campsite is devided into two fields. The fruityard is 3,000 msq and the big field is 10,000 msq. In the center you’ll find the sanitary block and nicely located on the big field we have the campfire.
On the large field there are 6 pitches on the right side with morning sunshine and later in the afternoon the shade. The other pitches receive the sun later but will stay in the sunshine until the last minute, but it’s easy to create your own shade of course.
The other 4 pitches are to be found in the fruityard. This is also the place where you can join our table d’hôte at the long table underneath the bamboo roof. The free wifi spot can also be found here as well as the collection point for your morning bread when the baker drops in.
Reservations are required during peak season.
The campfire has been built in the large field. Campfires are always allowed under the supervision of an adult ………. with a bucket of water at hand.
During the day you can collect your pieces of old wood together with the children and in the evening you’ll have a great time roasting the marshmallows. Can you think of anything better?
It’s a sanitary block as you may expect, clean, tidy and modern. Toilets entrances are on to the outside of the building and the sinks and showers are on the inside. Shower cubicles equipped with shelves and hooks. No coins needed, the shower is free.
- 3 Toilets
- 3 Showers – mixer taps
- 3 Sinks with power sockets
On the outside under cover two sinks for the dishes and a seperate sink for washing clothes.
For only € 5 you can use our washing machine.
Of course we pay special attention to our disabled campers. We have a seperate shower and wash room fully equipped with shower chair, low sink and toilet, including all the necessary supports on the wall.
A private key will be given.
From 2018 we have a separate field for one night stays if we are fully booked.
So if all our pitches are booked but you just want to stay over night, there’s a big chance we can help you out.

The surrounding of Le Petit Mas d’Ile is ideal for a nice bike ride.
Bring a bike with at least 10 gears, and you shouldn’t have any problems with the hills and you can set out on well marked routes from 10km to 40km.
You prefer the mountainbike? No problem, you can hire them through “bike hire direct”.
Finally, you can also go for a ride on the Vélo Rail. Up to 5 people you peddle on a 9km old railway line
From the entrance of Le Petit Mas d’Ile you can already start your first on many walks. From a short walk to the Castle of St Germain to some longer walks around Esse and Lesterps. For each walk we have detailed maps and many walks are also suitable for (little) children. Don’t hesitate to ask for more information.
Swimming is a must during your holiday and the possibilities are plenty. Go for a nice day out to Lacs de Haute Charente including nice beaches, restaurant, shower and toilets. But also nearby you can already find small rivers to play in or to cool down. Confolens has a big outdoor swimming pool, including diving boards and slides, but of course you can also relax and chill around our swimming pool.
What can be more fun than a canoe trip on the river La Vienne on a hot summer day? Every day you can go out for a trip. Different distances to choose from. Anyone can join, life vests and helmets will be supplied, but of course, everything at your own risk.
Friendly horses graze in the field attached to our campsite. These are the horses of Valerie who will accompany you on a nice ride through the surrounding. No matter if you are an experienced rider or not, anything is possible, even a ride with a carriage.
No matter your age, there’s always a park for you. Watch the monkies in Vallée des Singes or climb ropes and trees in Parc Aventure Massignac. But don’t forget to visit Futuroscope, a real must see.
During the 2nd week of August Confolens is one big theatre during the “Festival de Confolens”. Different groups from all over the world will perform with singing and dancing at a very high level. During the week several groups will just play for fun in the street, so don’t be surprised when you are suddenly faced with Mexican violins or the drums from Tahiti. A beautiful and friendly atmosphere together with lovely food and cold drinks. What a week.
Other festivities are every other week the Producers Market “Marche du Producteurs” and of course nearly every weekend the Carboot Sale “vide grenier” and several other markets.
Not one, not two, but many castles can be visited in the surroundings of Confolens. For some you’ll have to make an appointment, but others are always open. The best one to visit is La Rochefoucauld with the “must do” ……… dress up into a knight or a dame.
- Ruins of the castle of St Germain de Confolens
- The war monument at Oradour sur Glane
- The fairytale castle at La Rochefoucauld
