Visit the beautiful Vendée region for a quintessentially French camping holiday in an idyllic spot. Situated on the West Coast near the Loire Valley, south of Nantes and north of La Rochelle, the sparkling, sun-soaked “Côte de Lumière” boasts kilometres of Blue Flag sandy beaches. Our two holiday parks in the region, Le Bois Masson and Le Bois Dormant, are the perfect places to settle in for a beach holiday.
Campsites Le Bois Dormant and Le Bois Masson are in the delightful town of St Jean de Monts, with its golden beaches calling out for games in the sand – it must be time to dig out that frisbee! Then there are the water sports, be it swimming, wind surfing, land yachts or dinghies. Not to mention cycle paths and even nearby golf courses. Yet more glorious beaches are to be found at Les Sables d’Olonne, and its marina is a great spot to watch the yachts go by. Whereas the Atlantic swell will be an irresistible lure to surf enthusiasts at La Tanchet…
