September is a great time to visit the Charente maritime region of France, the weather is normally fantastic, the roads are quite and it is just perfect for a late summer get away. So whether you want to join us for some late season training or just want to come for a relaxing holiday we have availability and at very good late season prices.
During September I will be putting in some hard training in my final preparation for Hawaii IM so if you want to join me that would be great. But if you just want to take in some easy bike rides and visit some vine yards than we also have plenty to offer.

Very excited that an old friend, training partner and awesome athlete of old, Peter Sandvang, will be helping me this year on my Volcano Camp
For people new to the sport and have not heard of Peter his list of achievement is huge, but to mention a few – 3 x ITU Long Distance World Champ (consecutively 1999 to 2001- ) 1st NZ IM 1998, 1st Lanzarote IM 2002.
I think I did beat him once:)
Time really is running out to join this camp as accommodation has nearly all gone!
