Naturist swimming pool at Charente Soleil naturist resort in France

Heated Swimming Pool

The in-ground pool is 10m long by 5m wide. Its "leisure" profile means there is no "deep" end - It is 1m deep all around the sides and 1.6m deep in the middle. This makes it ideal for both the less confident swimmer and also for pool games.

Both the pool and the shower are solar-heated so there is no need to shiver even early or late in the season.

Pool towels are available for hire if you don't want to bring your own.


sample menu at Charente Soleil naturist resort in France


All of our cottages are provided with comprehensive self-catering facilities. However, for those occasions when you do not wish to prepare a meal, we offer a delicious 4 course table d'hotes dinner with wine and tea/coffee included. The ingredients are local whenever possible and the fruit and vegetables often come from our own garden. The price is 26€ per person.

If the weather is suitable then we dine outside, if not then in our large conservatory. Either way you are free to dress or remain undressed for dinner and of course there is no need to worry about driving after that extra glass of wine. You can view a sample menu by clicking the image on the left. We are able to cater for vegetarian and other dietary requirements on request.

We also organise a communal BBQ once a week in high season. This is entirely optional but has proved very popular and is a good way to meet fellow guests.

Breakfast is also available for a small charge.


naturisr boules court at Charente Soleil naturist centre in France


There are over 2 acres of grounds. A gateway from the courtyard leads to the communal gardens and swimming pool. The pool terrace provides ample space for sun beds, patio tables etc. The whole area is secluded and sheltered thus providing the ideal spot for naturist sunbathing and soaking up the Charente sunshine.

This area also includes a purpose built boules (petanque) court - We have sets of boules for you to use so everyone can have a go at this traditional French game.

For a quieter spot, the orchard provides some welcome shade from the mid-day sun. All of these areas are suitably secluded for obtaining an all-over tan.


childrens' play house at Charente Soleil naturist resort in France


The pool is of course the big attraction but there is also a small play area with sand-pit and the childrens own miniature gîte (play-house).
