Alan Rogers Review

Camping du Jard is a well maintained site between La Rochelle and Les Sables-d’Olonne. First impressions are good, with a friendly welcome from M. Marton and his staff. The 130 touring pitches, all with 10A electricity (Europlug) and 60 also with water and drainage, are level and grassy; many are hedged by bushes and a large variety of trees provide shade in places. A similar ratio of pitches are used by tour operators and 50 accommodation units are available to rent. An impressive pool complex has a heated outdoor pool with toboggan and paddling pool, plus an indoor pool with jacuzzi. The site is 700 m. from a sandy beach with many shops and restaurants nearby.

A short drive away is the fashionable resort of Les Sables d’Olonne, with its fine sandy beach, its good quality shops and restaurants and its visitor attractions. In fact, the entire Vendée region provides a wide range of well-documented activities and tourist destinations. Prime among these is the historical theme park Le Puy du Fou. In complete contrast, a wonderful day out can be had on the peaceful, shady waterways of the Marais Poitevin (La Venise Verte).
