Alan Rogers Review

Camping des Batardières is a haven of tranquillity on the edge of an unspoilt village, yet just 5 km. from the sea. It is an attractive, unsophisticated little site, lovingly maintained by its owners for more than 25 years. Many visitors return year after year. There are 75 good sized, manicured, grassy pitches (a few up to 130 sq.m) and all are available for touring units (there are no mobile homes and no tour operators!). All have easy access to water and electricity (6A). Otherwise there are few facilities on site.

There is an interesting motor Museum on the outskirts of Les Sables d’Olonne. Day trips to Puy du Fou or the Château de Guignardiere at Avrille are possible – the children will love the pirate adventure park. Both the harbour and the zoo at Les Sables are worth a visit and further a field is the tower of Saint Nicholas and the Abbey of St-Criox. For the more adventurous, the fortified town of La Rochelle is within reach.


The sanitary block is kept very clean and visitors are encouraged to keep it that way (no shoes in the shower cubicles, for instance). Some washbasin and shower combination cubicles. Laundry facilities. Tennis court. Play area and field for games, kite-flying etc. Not suitable for American motorhomes or twin-axle caravans.
