Le Sequoia Parc, one of the most beautiful campsites in Charente Maritime
High-end camping and caravanning is really the best definition of camping Les Castels Sequoia Parc, in the Charente Maritime. Considered one of the most beautiful and finest campsites in France, le Sequoia Parc welcomes its guests in more than optimal conditions.
A campsite full of history
The history of the property on which this 5-star campsite is settled began in 1852, with the construction of the Josephtrie Castle. An imposing construction surrounded by farms and agrarian buildings. At that time, the courtyard of the castle was occupied by an imposing tree: a sequoia. Even if it doesn't exist any more, its memory remains intact and the name of the campsite comes from this tree..
To transform this estate into a luxury outdoor establishment has not been easy, but the result is worth the effort. Tourists can enjoy a wooded and green 45-acres property, occupied by spacious pitches of 140 m² and by beautiful rental accommodations.
The Sequoia Parc includes cottages and other comfortable and high-quality VIP mobile homes. Although all of them are worth the stay, we will retain first the village "La Marina", located near the water park, with its "Key West" cottages, among some of the most modern and comfortable cottages in the market. Their design and equipments make them true luxury and uncommon lodgings.
An exceptional property where luxury rimes with nature
If the accommodations are luxurious and the pitches comfortable, what to say then about the facilities. The buildings, once farms and servants homes, have been renovated and transformed into shops, bars, restaurants, show stages, etc.
Nearby, we find the water park, or Aquaparc, which is the real heart of the campsite. With more than 2 000 m² of swimming pools and sunbathing areas, this is one of the largest water parks of the Department. We count no less than five pools, of which three are heated. Besides a whirlpool, this Aquaparc also has an artificial river of 110 metres, as well as different water slides for children's, but also parents' greatest pleasure.
To entertain the youngest, camping Séquoia Parc has not skimped on the means. In addition to a playground and multiple sports fields, this establishment also has a mini-farm, a pony club as well as two children's clubs: the "minibou" offering fun activities for 4 to 7 years old, and the club "ibou" taking care of 8-13 years old.
Finally, during the day and the evening, the many varied activities are for everybody. From water polo tournaments to concerts and jeu-de-boules games, there is something for everyone!
Under the spell of the Charente Maritime
Tourists who come to spend their holiday on the campsite Séquoia Parc can not expect a better location to explore the treasures of the Charente Maritime. This establishment, located in Saint-just Luzac, is as a matter of fact adjacent to Marennes, a municipality located at equal distance from the Island of Oleron, Rochefort and Royan.
The city of Rochefort, today located inland, at a few kilometres from the coast, has long been considered one of the most important ports of France. This city has many historical monuments to visit, such as the famous Royal Ropery or yet the Marine Museum, where the shipyard of the Hermione is organized, aiming to rebuilt identically the frigate of the Marquis de La Fayette.
North of Rochefort, taking the direction of La Rochelle, it is impossible to miss Fort Boyard, popularized by a famous television game and located opposite the town of Fouras... Before serving as a prison, this fort was part of a fortification system to protect the Charente Coast against English assaults, aiming in particular La Rochelle, where the entrance to the harbour is still guarded by two high towers.
