We stayed at La Guyonniere last week of July for a fortnight. Site was easy enough to locate. Check in easy and staff more than helpful.
Our pitch was located toward the back of the site with water and drainage as requested. The pitch itself was huge, our opposite neighbours had some shade but we had none which is something to bear in mind when the weather s very hot in the Vendee (we did ask for a sunny pitch!!).
The site is quite sprawling and we didn't realise the full extent of it until we had a walk around the various fields.
In our experience noise levels were non existent at night which was great after our previous years experience at a site in the Loire.
The toilet blocks were kept clean and tidy and never smelly. Toilet paper (from dispensers outside he cubicles) did run out a couple of times. I think the block in our field must have been one f the oldest as others had newer enclosed blocks.
The roads are not made up which isn't a problem, only dusty!
The area we felt the campsite let down our rating is the swimming pool. It is a nice pool with lazy river, however it seemed to us that the site has grown by adding new fields but the size of the swimming pool area has not risen to accommodate more people needing space to sit or sunbath. To get a sunbed it was necessary to get to the pool area by 11.00 we found. in addition, the paved area surrounding the pools is very uneven and wobbly in places, we were surprised not to see more people trip or stub their toes. The approach to the pool area is gravel and thus when you leave quite uncomfortable. Food and drink are available at the pool area via the bar.
Pool lifeguards were however very visible and did an excellent job of ensuring all users of the pools were kept safe, particularly as there were many small children. (bombing and that type of action being stopped).
We did not use the bar or restaurant but looked in and it was very pleasant, the menu also seemed quite extensive.
Accommodation on the site is very varied to suit all tastes and budgets. Bikes can be hired and they all looked new and modern.
The entertainment was put on by the staff and was delivered with enthusiasm and humour.
All staff were very helpful and friendly and worked hard.
We do think however that the site could be further developed to provide a better experience. Having said that we encountered many families returning to the site year on year so maybe we are looking for something different!
We did buy 2 weeks Wifi at 35 Euros. Wifi is available throughout the site but so slow (I would assume because of the number of users) as to be unusable. I think the staff have heard this as it was suggested when I bought it. To their credit though after two days when I gave up the site readily refunded the full amount.
