Great site

La Guyonnière
Had a lovely 2 week holiday here large pitches with plenty of space for our 2 labradors although our pitch must be popular as the grass well worn and bare . Can't fault the facilities shower blocks are fairly new and very clean, (cleaned several times a day) and although our field was large and nearly full we didn't have to wait for a shower. Staff were very friendly and the site is large and we'll looked after with shop, restaurant, bar, cycle hire, pool plus much more and plenty of walks nearby with a large lake nearby with pedalos and our dogs loved swimming in it every day and to top it off the weather was brilliant throughout our stay.we were so pleased with the site that we have booked again for next year.

labradors r the best

Extremely well appointed site in a rural setting perfect for a quiet holiday

La Guyonnière
Although a large site, it is well set out in individual fields. We discovered Lac du Jaunay next to the bottom end of the site on the first night and we walked/ran around the top half every day – around 4 miles. There are amenity blocks in each area kept clean regularly – no complaints there whatsoever. Pitches are wide and spacious, although it’s worth figuring out if you get any shade – when we were there it was very hot and we had to sit sometimes behind the caravan away from the sun! Some of the other savvy European campers in our field had pitched up on the other side so that they got plenty of shade in the heat of the day. Great for families, and lots of onsite activities. Not much going on on in nearby St Julien des Landes or La Mothe Achard, and it’s a 15 minute drive to the coast where there are plenty of sandy bays. Due to the lack of many quiet back roads, much of our cycling was done on the main roads – this wasn’t a major issue for us as the traffic was light and the French drivers were very considerate to bikes in the road. Not sure I would’ve wanted to go out on a ride with young children however. We loved our time here and would certainly recommend it

A real gem!

La Guyonnière
We spent 7 nights here in May in our caravan and loved every minute. Staff and service excellent, facilities modern and spotlessly clean. Biggest pitch we've ever been on.Nice walks around the Lac de Jaunay. The site is well located to access the fabulous beaches of the Vendee. would definitely recommend and use again.

Second best site we have found in France!

La Guyonnière
We stayed here for 8 nights in July - we thought it was a really good site. Great facilities - pool with slide and lazy river area - it was a bit tired in places - cleaning around the edges could be better. However the kids loved it - not enough sunbeds on busy days - we had to sit against the wall on a few occasions. The toilets are clean and ok - our field had a block for womens and the other seemed to be for both sexes - a bit random though as often men would be in the ladies! You do have to take loo roll from a container on the way in - not really practical - kids especially didn't like that so tended to take a loo roll from our caravan when going! Lots to do on site pony trekking, volleyball, tennis, bike hire - we punctured three balls on the football pitch as the hedgerow is very spikey! Predominantly Dutch onsite, then Brits. The used the pizza takeaway - which was good. The restaurant wasn't our cup of tea - but was busy. The area is brilliant - so much to do - recommend The Grand Delfi and O Gliss - all of us enjoyed these days out. Also beaches great - everything from sandy to pebbly - surf and flat. We would give this site 4.5 / 5 and would happily go again
