Located ten minutes from the Vieux Port of  La  Rochelle  it  has  all  the  charms  of the French countryside with the advantages  of  a  touristic  site  accessible  by bike  or  through  La  Rochelle’s  bus  network, and nearby grocery stores. The facilities of the Beaulieu camping are outstanding. Between April and November, regardless  of  the  weather,  dive  into  the twenty-eight degrees heated water of the semi covered pool. At one end, enjoy the balneotherapy  spa  bath  whilst  the  kids paddle  nearby,  at  the  other  end  let  the teenagers play down the slides. Whether you come with the entire family or simply  with  your  significant  other,  the camping Beaulieu can accommodate your needs with its large range of rentals – cot-

tages from one to six persons with television  and  a  covered  terrace,  or  tent  and recreational  vehicle  places  with  wireless internet throughout the camping. After the holiday season stress, with a year  of  work  starting  over,  taking  a well-deserved break becomes salutary and Beaulieu is never out of activities to let off steam. The sauna, Jacuzzi or an hour with the camping's masseuse will sure take care of it. If  you  are  in  it  for  the  Frenchness  and sightseeing, make sure to plan a trip to the three towers of La Rochelle built between the 13th and 15th century right on the waterfront, a delightful ballade by the ocean.  The  island  of  Ré  is  also  a  few minutes away from the camping Beaulieu

and  will  be  ideal  for  an  exploration  trip with the family as it hosts a series of historical monuments. Finally, many will have childhood memories of Fort Boyard, which is only a few minutes off the coast from La Rochelle and will make for a fun trip with the kids. Obviously  the  culinary  junkies  will  be fixed as well with the local mussels, oysters  and  sea  food  specialties,  famous Pineau wines and Cognac liquor. As the weather gets moody in the lands we live in, the timing couldn't be better to reload by the ocean or look forward to you summer trip, where the sun is nearer and a smile just a dive away. www.camping-la-rochelle.com
