The Charente-Maritime, between land and sea …

Between land and sea … this means a large choice of trips! Our campsite Au Port-Punay is located near the beautiful sandy beach of Châtelaillon-Plage et the department has many others with a total of 150 km of beach along its coast: Grand Village, La Côte Sauvage …
