Alan Rogers Review

Developed adjacent to two large fishing lakes, les Rulières is a compact and peaceful site at the heart of the Vendée region, close to the Marais Poitevin. There are 25 modern chalets to rent and just seven very large, grassy pitches for tourers, all with water and electricity (10A) nearby, though a long lead may be needed on some. It is a great retreat for anglers, and for those who enjoy walking and cycling as there is an extensive and expanding network of waymarked paths in the area. The coast is around 30 km. away, while La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré are also an easy drive.

Close at hand the wetlands of the Marais Poitevin, often called La Venise Verte, contain a great abundance of birdlife, which can be observed in a unique natural marsh environment, ideally from a punt or boat drifting along the shaded waterways. In complete contrast, the historical theme park of Puy du Fou provides an amazing experience, as does the more distant Futuroscope, the theme park of the moving image. Thanks to its location and good access to the A87 and A83 motorways, les Rulières is also an excellent break point for those heading south from (or north to) Nantes or Angers.


Small basic toilet block with pushbutton showers and washbasins in cubicles. Washing machine. Heated swimming pool with retractable roof. Bread van calls. Private fishing lake (€ 5/day, € 15/week). In high season: activities organised for children on demand; welcome drink Saturdays; weekly themed family meal with music/entertainment and carriage rides for children pulled by Coquette, one of the site’s donkeys (charged).
