Kindá Kamping aims for you to experience living as close to nature as possible (if only for a week or so) while keeping the modern day facilities most of us have come accustomed to. At Kindá Kamping we like to try to step back to the times when life was simple and stress free, with an added touch of luxury.

We have seven lovely, safe, swimming lakes nearby with man made clean beaches and grassed play areas. The lakes have designated swimming area’s with separate sectioned off area for non-swimmers and younger children. All these lakes are life guarded in the summer months. All have free parking and toilet facilities, most even have café/restaurants. Some of these lake have diving platforms, canoe’s, kayaks and pedalo’s and children’s play area’s. It’s just like the day at the beach but nicer.
The park has 7 courses with increasing difficulty (yellow, green, bleu, orange , red, black and ultra black), including about 70 games (bridges, tarzan ropes, climbing nets, zip wires…), enabling you to climb up to 12m high for the most reckless! The Espace Hermeline also has an activity for younger children, from 4 years old and a meter high, which enables them to discover new sensations on a unique course.

Good restaurants and auberges
Supermarkets and caves (for the wine)
A great holiday in the bell tents, the location was lovely, the tents were spacious, we loved having the kitchen and bathroom cabins for that extra bit of comfort. Leigh and Dave are very good hosts, accommodating, helpful and good company. It was a real plus having the restaurant onsite as it's a very quiet and rural part of France.
The shared pool was very popular with the children and there was plenty of space, both around the pool and on the site.
My sons liked the little BMX pump track, and if you're in to mountain biking or cycling this is a great place to go, especially with the mountain biking trails right outside the tents.
