Why stay here ...
Set on the borders of the Brière National Park and overlooking the sea, Les Iles is a lively campsite with lots going on in high season. The heated outdoor pool complex has a water slide and whirlpool, organised entertainment takes place in the daytime and evenings, and adults can enjoy a relaxing massage at Chalet Zen, the onsite spa.
Off peak, the site is popular with couples and the facilities are kept open. Pitches vary in size and those with larger caravans and motorhomes are advised to book well in advance to ensure an adequately sized pitch.
The site has direct access to cliff-top trails and it’s possible to walk to the islands at low tide. Carnac, famous for its standing stones and oyster farming, is an hour’s drive, while a little over an hour to the south-east is Nantes, one of France’s culinary centres.

Booked this site for 8 nights. First night we discovered that a group of some 35/40 people (other than campers) were staying for weekend. First night they were very noisy (until 3 AM) we thought this was a one off. Next night, site had laid on a meal for them and a disco. Disco started at 11PM (very loud) and was still going at gone 12 PM. Management were clearly aware but seemed to accept situation. Fortunately the group left on next day, so things were quieter. Overall, the site seems to be turning more into a holiday camp rather than a normal type campsite. Issues with washroom and toilet cleaning and shop, bar and restaurant closed once the group had left. Pitches not well tended. Staff very friendly and helpful, but management seems clearly steering the site in a different direction. We left after 5 nights and shall not go there again. Many other sites locally, so will go to these in future ! This used to be a good site, but commerciality seems to have become more important than customer satisfaction !
Response from the Club:
The site has now been bought by the small Vendeen chain Chadotel and this is a family orientated organisation and will hopefully steer the site back in the right direction.
Motorhomers, over 60, no kids, as were most of the campers- site was full so something is right - beach is very close and great - reception closed 1200 - 1500 but if you have booked, your pitch number will be on the door so go on in - the fact that the site was open in all respects if a little depleted in stock at the shop and a bit short of staff - typical end of season but a good site - can imagine it being a bit manic with families on site - so us oldies can go when the schools go back, purrfect, pitches are sized when camping units where smaller but our 7.0 metre motorhome was fine.
