The tranquil green camping site Le Bois Vert, situated in a hilly region, can be found on the outskirts of the medieval town of Parthenay. The beautiful, spacious pitches (max. 130 m2) on this -wellmaintained camping site are located along paved roads and are separated from each other by hedges. You have a choice of pitches with or without shade.
A limited number of rental mobile homes and tents are spread out over the camping grounds (2 ha). This camping site is mainly frequented by French and British families.
The Grosset family will extend you a warm welcome at the reception and will gladly give you information about the tourist sights in the area. From here, you can embark on some easy walking and cycling routes. Follow the ‘Voie verte’ or go for a beautiful walk in the Thouet Valley.
Swimming fun and disco evenings
The camping site has a heated swimming pool (100 m2) and toddler pool. There is a small selection of playground equipment for young children. There is also a pétanque pitch and a table tennis table on the camping site. Near the restaurant (limited menu), where you can also get takeaway meals, you will find a terrace with a view of the swimming pool. Themed dinners and disco evenings are organised on a regular basis. On the camping site, you can get a few basic foodstuffs and fresh bread.

A great situation, on the edge of town so quiet but close to shops, eateries etc. & next to a large lake with a path round it & kids' play areas. One lady seemed to do nearly everything but still found time to show us round & find a pitch where our 27'+ 5th-wheeler would fit & not get bogged down if it rained. Parthenay has a compact centre with a cluster of restaurants, lots of parking & everything you might need within sight.
Only stayed for a couple of nights. Not a good impression on arrival, the whole area looked undated for. Could be due to the fact that it was low season but, hey, we paid the price just like everyone else so we're disappointed to see it so unloved. Although in the ACSI description it stated pool open it was definitely not fit to swim in as the water was dirty and cloudy. Hopefully it will be much improved for peak season visitors. On the plus side the washing machines were the cheapest I found on our trip around France.
Peaceful campsite by river with good hot showers in block which seemed brand new - good pitch size and well maintained grounds.
Arrived after a long drive walked my dog had a quick bite to eat then wanted a shower and to drop into bed. Toilet block in darkness returned to camper to find torch. Search toilet block it appeared the main switch was off tried all the sensor but no lighting the hand dryer worked but nothing else. As there were no windows it was very dark. Returned to office and tried the out of hours bell but no one came. Went to bed and decided to shower in the morning. I could have stayed on an aire and saved the site fee.
friendly staff. we had troble with our van and they arranged for us to take it to a garage where they attended to the problem straightaway. it was very quiet when we were there (september) but it was hot so the pool got plenty of use. pitches were large and most in good condition. some however,were very overgrown , almost as if they were lying fallow ! plenty of good pitches were available though. we did a lot of cycling and parthenay has a very interesting medievel part.the sanitaires were very clean and well looked after. we would go again.
Lovely well kept site. We visited 2 days after it opened for the season and were the only ones on site so very quiet and peaceful. Toilet block is modern and very clean! A bit chilly for the swimming pool but it looked clean! Heated in the local leisure centre just across the bridge. The lady owner spoke English and was very helpful. Parthenay is a lovely town. We walked down the river path straight into the old part. We could only stay 2 nights but would certainly go again. Not sure it would be so appealing at the height of the season for us but looks a perfect place for families.
We really liked this site. The pitch we had was huge. The exotic birds and chickens were fun (and the owners even gave us a freshly laid egg). Pool looked good, but too cold to use. Lovely walk along the lake to the town which is well worth a visit. As we didn't see all the town will certainly return to this site.
Excellent We Stayed at this site for one night only as the site was closing for the winter the following day If we had discovered the site earlier we would have stayed longer The owners were very welcoming The site was well kept and the sanitary block WOW was so clean and well laid out There was a lovely public park and indoor swimming pool and town with a large supermarket all within walking distance We will definitely stay there again
Nice size pitch. Spotless modern sanitary block. Site had lots of empty pitches so we chose close to the playground as we had a 7 year old in our party. He was happy with the playground. The electrical posts near our pitch had several damaged sockets - I checked two posts before I found a usable socket. The two young ladies who checked us in seemed bored to be there. The town has a brand new playground and also a big swimming pool which is a 5-10 minute walk from the campsite. There is a Hyper U another 10 mins walk after that. The petrol station at the Hyper U has a low overhang. The old part of the town is beautiful. We would return to this site. The campsite also looks after the wire de service next door which is right on the lake.
We had intended to stay three or four days and ended up staying for two weeks. We had free use of the bikes for our stay and this allowed us to explore the surrounding countryside and nearby villages. We also had free access to the local tennis club courts where we enjoyed playing most afternoons. The town of Parthenay has an old section which is well worth a look.
