Alan Rogers Review

A popular site right beside the sea, Sol à Gogo has 197 level, sandy pitches, of which just five are used for touring units. Each pitch has electricity (10A, Europlug) and they are clearly marked by bushes and a few trees, providing a degree of shade and privacy. There is a gate giving direct access to a sandy beach (guarded in high season), which makes it a popular site with families and there is also a well-designed pool complex, with a sunbathing area, overlooked by a pleasant bar and terrace. A high proportion of the pitches (130) are occupied by tour operators. The bar and takeaway are available all season and the whole site is very much geared to the English-speaking holidaymaker.

There is no shop, although the takeaway does keep some essentials and has fresh bread and croissants every morning; in addition, there is a small supermarket a short walk away. Nearby Saint Hilaire has a good range of bars, restaurants and shops and there is also a large supermarket conveniently located. A little further along the coast are the busy fishing port and resort of Saint Gilles Croix-de-Vie to the south and the ever-popular Saint Jean-de-Monts to the north. Boat trips to the interesting Ile d’Yeu operate from Saint Hilaire, whilst a pleasant day out can be had on the Ile de Noirmoutier (reached by a bridge). The Vendée region offers a wide range of activities and sight-seeing opportunities.
