The well maintained family camping site LeLidon is located in Saint-Hilaire-la-Palud, the marshy part of the Marais Poitevin. The camping site is an oasis of peace and quiet. The camping pitches are spacious (90 - 120 m2), although there is little or no demarcation. There is ample shade everywhere. Some pitches are adjacent to the small canal. On the camping site (some 3 ha) there are rental mobile homes, some of which look like a gypsy caravan. You can also hire several types of tents.
Lovely swimming and food
There is a small lawn near the heated swimming pool (160 m2) with toddler pool. There are water aerobics lessons and water polo competitions in the pool in peak season. Next to the camping site is a restaurant/bar with a small menu. They also do take-away meals. There is a limited choice of regional products, but fresh bread is available on a daily basis.
Entertainment for all
There is a small playground for children and an entertainment programme in peak season (English and French). Take part in the outdoor games and party games. From the camping site you can follow signposted cycling and walking routes. You can make a boat or canoe trip from the jetty to one of the canals of the Marais Poitevin Nature Reserve. The nature area is also excellent for walking.
Join a skipper
The wetland region of Marais Poitevin is also referred to as the 'Venice of France'. The region knows three zones: a coastal zone, the reclaimed marshland and the wet marshland. Highly recommended: explore the marshy regions with a punt (a traditional flat-bottom boat) with a skipper and pay a visit to the Abbey of the Marai in Maillezais.
