|The charming town of Saint-Jean-de-Monts is a brilliant choice for a sunny seaside camping holiday in the beautiful West Coast Vendée region. Set between long sandy beaches, pine forests and an unspoiled marshland area rich in biodiversity, it offers no shortage of opportunities for relaxation and enjoying the fresh air. Siblu holiday parks Le Bois Dormant and Le Bois Masson are situated less than 2 miles from the bustling town centre where you’ll find cafés, restaurants and a fairground style big wheel (always popular with the kids).|

Beaches and Nature
Saint-Jean-de-Monts is uniquely situated between 8km of sandy beaches, tranquil forests and the ‘marais breton’ an extensive stretch of marshland rich in all kinds of biodiversity (including populations of birds such as heron and egrets). If you want a really unique guided tour of this beautiful area we recommend checking out the company ‘Deambul’ which allows you to book a tour in a punt or in a horse-drawn carriage. It's the ideal way to enjoy this unique landscape of wetlands, polders and canals at a relaxed pace.
For a relaxed family day out there’s nothing better than simply exploring Saint-Jean-de-Monts, wandering the coastline, hiking over the sand at low tide or going for a dip at high tide. However if you’re looking for a bit more of an adventurous day out there some great options in the area. Explora Park in the Saint-Jean-de-Monts Forest offers a range of thrilling tree-top adventure for all ages. Get a new perspective on the forest by gazing down from the heights. Océabul in the heart of Saint-Jean-de-Monts is another great choice for a day out (particularly for a rainy day) thanks to its range of covered pools, water games and spa facilities.
Culture, Food & Drink
Culinary specialities from Vendée are known all over France (particularly famous is the delicious Vendée brioche and a traditional variety of fresh garlic bread called ‘préfou’). The Saint-Jean-de-Monts markets, traditionally held on Wednesdays and weekends, are a great place to sample these and other specialities while meeting local stallholders and soaking up the lively ambiance.
