Flower Camping L'Abri-Cotier is located to the west of the port of Rochefort, one and a half kilometres from the Atlantic Ocean. Here you can camp in peace and quiet close to the varied French west coast. Here you can visit the famous Fort Boyard, but also Île Madame, an island that can only be reached at low tide.
Via Rochefort you drive along a two-lane road between fields towards the Atlantic coast. With an entrance full of flowers and trees - even palm trees greet you as you enter the grounds - camping L'Abri-Cotier lives up to its name. Here you can camp in the shade of full trees. Hedges ensure that you camp with a lot of privacy.
Indoor swimming pool
The indoor swimming pool on the side of the campsite is ideal for lazy swimmers and for children who want to play in the water. For toddlers there is a paddling pool next to the large rectangular pool. There is a playground with a trampoline, swings and a climbing frame.
Fort Boyard and more
Rochefort is definitely worth a visit. The coastline is also interesting here. The port area is interspersed with small sandy beaches and nature reserves where water birds feel at home. Bird watchers can have a great time here. From the tip of the peninsula on the Charente River, a road leads to Île Madame, a small island in the Atlantic Ocean. This island can only be reached at low tide, via the Passe aux Bœufs, the 'cow corridor'. A little further out to sea is Fort Boyard.
