Alan Rogers Review

Of the seaside sites on the Vendée, les Ecureuils has to be one of the best, run by a friendly and most helpful family. Just 300 m. from a superb beach, the site is ideally situated for exploring from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Noirmoutier. Developed on what was originally a farm, there are 215 pitches (39 for touring units). On sandy grass, all have electricity (6A, Europlug adaptors available free of charge), water and drainage. Well kept hedges and mature trees give shade and privacy, although some more open pitches are also available for sun lovers. The site is popular with British tour operators (60%).

Everything on Les Ecureuils is clean and well maintained with an abundance of flowers and shrubs planted throughout the site giving a very attractive appearance.


The two main sanitary blocks are spacious and include some washbasins in cubicles and facilities for babies and disabled visitors. Laundry facilities. Motorcaravan services. Dog shower. Small shop.
