Alan Rogers Review

A warm welcome is given by the English-speaking owners, Martine and Eric Malard, who make every effort to ensure that your stay is enjoyable. On site is a small, attractive lake with fishing and a large sports field. There are 178 pitches of which 94 are for touring units, all with 6A electricity (Europlug). The site has 24 mobile homes to rent, including one equipped for disabled visitors, and there are 60 which are privately owned. Indoor and outdoor swimming pools. This is a hidden gem in a small village away from the hustle and bustle of the seaside resorts. Ideal for those looking for a quiet holiday, it is still within a short drive of the Vendée coast and the Ile de Noirmoutier.

Ten kilometres away is the busy town of Challans, with a good choice of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants plus lively weekly markets; on four Thursdays each summer the town becomes ‘Autrefois Challans’ involving 25,000 people, with costumed reconstructions of the life of the town in days gone by and the opportunity to join in the festivities. The Vendée has an impressive array of activities and tourist attractions, and cards giving details are available in the campsite’s reception area; these include abbeys and gardens, châteaux with ‘son et lumière’ or hands-on reconstructions of historical events, museums and art galleries, theme parks and a zoo.
