French campsites scoop Alan Rogers’ awards

8d4008ab-0c1a-4774-b4a1-4a33864debe8

The winners of the Alan Rogers' awards for the best campsites in Continental Europe have been confirmed...and the two big winners are both in France.

This year’s winner of the Alan Rogers Campsite of the Year Award is Camping Séquoia Parc in the Charente-Maritime region, France.

Séquoia Parc is set in the grounds of La Josephtrie, a castle with beautifully restored outbuildings and courtyard area with a bar and restaurant. Top marks were awarded to the site’s high spec design with large, light and airy reception, pool complex with four pools (three heated), slides, fountains, river and spacious sunbathing area is impressive. A lovely terraced area adjacent to the snack bar allows guests to enjoy their food in a very pleasant garden setting with sunshades.

The awards were made in partnership with the Caravan and Motorhome Club and its Continental Campsite of the Year Award went to Nature Parc L'Ardèchois, which is also in France. This beautifully maintained, family-run site won top marks for its fantastic location on the L’Ardèche River.  This well-kept site is ideal for active families and has comprehensive facilities. Children and disabled guests are well catered for and the pitches are of a good size and separated by trees and shrubs.   The bar and restaurant are the focal point of the site, with a lovely pool complex, play area and organised activities for families in the summer. Patrols are made at night to ensure peace and quiet is maintained.
