Alan Rogers Review

Les Ecureuils is a wooded site in a quieter part of the southern Vendée. Large pitches are separated by low hedges with plenty of shade. Of the 278 pitches, only 23 are for touring units, each with 10A electricity, water and drainage. Access on the narrow site roads could be difficult. The emphasis here is most definitely on chalets and mobile homes to rent. The site provides a good outdoor pool with a large flume and an indoor pool with a jacuzzi and fitness facilities. Jard is rated among the most pleasant and least hectic of Vendée towns. The harbour is home to some fishing boats and rather more pleasure craft.

There is a public slipway for those bringing their own boats.


One old, rather tired sanitary block should be renovated. It includes baby baths, facilities for disabled visitors, and laundry rooms. Small shop (bread baked on site), bar, snack bar and takeaway (1/6-1/9). Good sized L-shaped swimming pool and separate paddling pool (all season). New large flume into separate pool. Indoor pool with jacuzzi and fitness and wellness centres (all season). Imaginative play area (3-10 yrs). Minigolf. Boules. Multisports pitch. Bouncy castle. Club for children (5-10 yrs, July/Aug). Games room. Bicycle hire. Internet access and WiFi (free). No charcoal barbecues. Dogs are not accepted.
