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 restaurant, pool complex with slides, mini-golf, childrens farm and a kids’ club and entertainment in the summer months.

Close to the salt marshes and the Planete Sauvage animal reserve, 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.

SUMMER 2022

Les Vallons de l'Océan
Pitches - a few touring pitches fitted in where mobile homes could not be located Sanitary Facilities - very clean OnSite bar / restaurant - expensive Comments: We arrived on site and were placed on a pitch near reception and near the bar and pool. Our electrical connection was nowhere to be seen and two hook up leads had to be joined to reach the electrical point on the other side of the adjoining pitch which needed to be unlocked by the site staff and a 2-pin connection added. We asked where the water point was and were told that there were none and that we should draw water from the wash basin taps (prestex) which took ages. Whether this was potable water was questionable. There was nowhere to drain the grey waste. The site "team" were very noisy as was the site itself. The site was miles from anywhere. Not a good stay.

Les Vallons de l'Océan
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.

Les Vallons de l'Océan
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

Les Vallons de l'Océan
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

Les Vallons de l'Océan

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.
