France, Vendée, Saint Jean-de-Monts
Alan Rogers Review
Ideal for family beach holidays, this large, friendly site is just 700 m. from the beach. Most of the 450 pitches here are taken by mobile homes; at present there are 40 available for touring, although some of these are destined for more mobiles. The few existing touring pitches, which have electricity and water nearby, are of average size on grass and divided by hedges. There is an excellent pool complex with water slides, a children’s pool, an imaginative new balnéo area and a sunbathing terrace. Adjacent to this is a spacious bar/snack bar. Acapulco is midway between the popular resort of Saint Jean-de-Monts and the more laid back Saint Hilaire-de-Riez; as a result the opportunities for shopping and eating out are numerous.
The site has opened its own exciting leisure complex nearby that incorporates bowling, laser games and a bar/restaurant. The busy fishing port of Saint Gilles Croix-de-Vie, a little further south, has quayside bars and restaurants, pedestrianised streets and a thriving marina. Fashionable Les Sables-d’Olonne, famous for its superb sandy beach and its great range of shops, bars and restaurants, is an easy drive away. The more adventurous might choose a day out to visit le Puy du Fou, an amazing historical theme park, or to take out a punt or canoe on the waterways of La Venise Verte.

Heated, open-air pool complex. Play area. Tennis. Boules. Multisports area. Games room. Bicycle hire.
