Why stay here ...

This pleasant site, owned by the Barré family, is rural and peaceful, offering a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Vendée resorts. Pitches are of a good size and well-tended, although access is narrow in places. The staff are friendly and helpful, and facilities include a pool complex with slides, mini-golf and a kids’ club and entertainment in the summer months.

Close to the salt marshes and the Briere National Park, there’s plenty to do around and about. Nearby Pornic is a picturesque town with an elegant castle, harbour and some sandy beaches, while inland is Nantes, a once-Breton town with a striking château and an excellent shopping arcade.

Very nice campsite but with limited facilities out of season. Members need to be aware of the office hours as many were seen waiting until 2pm in the car park. Barrier keypad an issue for right hand drive as it is impossible if no passenger to help. Pitches excellent although you need to search out the shaded ones. Only 3 showers available in this period, with 4 more locked. As we were leaving facilities were being readied for the start of the French invasion! Water supply for vans is an issue as push on/off taps are sadly lacking, e.g. 8 pitches to one tap. However for all this we love it and will return next year, staff are helpful and the pool is great, but beware high season demand on facilities. Excellent shopping nearby, same for restaurants and bars in Pornic. Nantes, Guerande, St Nazaire are excellent days out.

Easy journey down from Calais-definately follow CC local directions to site. Campsite not packed or many English our location on the back boundary recommended for tranquility. Shower block cleaned twice daily but no toilet seats. Pool under cover but 4 slides into splash pool and upper sunbathing deck-French swimwear enforced. Most of the site is on a hill and pitches tiered us you go up the hills. Small shop on site for essentials and take away food available. Supermarkets about a 10 minute drive away and cheap fuel. Crazy golf course,tennis courts and bowls area opposite site entrance (free of charge) We enjoyed our stay.

Few facilities and virtually empty out of peak time

In our experience this site is very typical of many French campsites - good sized pitches, reasonable facilities and good entertainment in the peak season. Friendly staff. Once in September it is very quiet, with very few people on site and few facilities open. As it is in the country you unable to walk to a town or village for any cafes, entertainment etc. A good proportion of site is given over to static cabins. Please be aware that if there is an 'adjacent agricultural show' you will get little sleep on some nights - check dates in early September.

Nice but remote

This is the second time we have stayed at this site. This time during early July. Main snag with site is there is nothing in reasonable walking distance so you need to drive or go by bike. Site is partly terraced on a hillside with a few tight corners on the access roads. Toilet block at top of site - (toilets no seats) & showers (mainly in outside cabins). Lower block all locked up. Water taps on site are press button so filling a can takes lots of pushes. Motorhome service point at far end of site - it's a bollard type one like you would find on an Aire. Swimming pool was lovely. On site shop ok for beer etc but not much food. No food available in bar at lunch times as they close for lunch!. Although site rule of no noise after 10.30pm on one night the disco in the bar could be heard way across the site well past midnight. Visiting Pornic a few miles away is a must - a nice coastal town with supermarkets (Lidl etc). Also a visit to Nantes is recommended - about an hours drive - nice city & Les Machines de I'ile well worth a visit.

May Visit

Site is situated about 4miles north of Pornic, on the D13 towards St Nazaire. The access off the main road to the site, about 1/2 miles, is narrow, twisty and bumpy in places so requires care. The site is situated on terraces on the sides of a valley, and some access roads are steep with tight bends Care is required, particularly by larger units. There are a variety of pitch sizes and shapes, although all seem adequate. All were neat and tidy this early in the season. About 75% of the site is static and holiday chalets, although the touring pitches are mostly in a separate area. High season parking at the statics could cause additional problems for tourers' access. Sanitary facilities are varied, but were kept clean. There are plenty of water points around the site, but the press button operation made the filling of an Aquaroll a tedious task. Steep site roads and stairs to the pool and washing machines could prove difficult for those with limited mobility. Few services were open when we visited early in the season. Pleasant stay here, but we will not be returning as the situation requires the use of the car to visit any location off site.
