Why stay here ...
A quiet site in low season, La Bolée d’Air becomes a busy, family-oriented destination in the summer months. The well-maintained amenities and activities include outdoor and indoor pools with a Jacuzzi, kids’ clubs and a multi-sports area on which a range of sports are organised.
The site itself is set between a pine forest and the Vendée coast, with level grass pitches separated by hedges, which offer privacy. It is kept clean and tidy throughout the season, with good provision for disabled guests and children.
There are plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and water sports for those who wish to remain active during their stay, and the resorts of Tranche-sur-Mer and Les Sables-d’Olonne are close by. The quiet town of Luçon, with its cathedral and public gardens, and the river port at Marans are also worth a visit.

This site was like a sexed up UK Caravan Club site. Very well done. Pitches were large and all screened with shrubbery. Even the grass was green and not burnt out as is common in France. Very good site and strongly recommended. The "animations" were just starting up when we left on 6 July. They were professional and good quality. The late evening noise curfew was well managed and caused no disturbance. All staff friendly and helpful. Slight negatives were that the entrance was like an obstacle course with permanently parked cars adjacent to the entrance and huge plant pots just to make it worse. Why? This was OK with a car but with caravan attached precision was needed to avoid the obstacles. The water taps were press button which drive you mad when trying to fill an aquaroll. No restaurant but there is a Snack shop which we did not try. Large and adequate bar with ice cream. Alimentation shop is basic but meets needs. Casino large supermarket is 2Km away with very cheap fuel. Quality of goods is similar to UK Asda. (not Waitrose) Strongly recommended site. Four star standard was achieved. Whilst there we spoke to a lady who said that she was a Caravan Club inspector!
