Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me. We are planning to visit the above campsite this summer. We have stopped in the area before but used the municipal site-Le Remondeau. We loved the proximity to the beach and the village with this site. My husband would like to swap to La Tour Des Prises as it also has a pool but I am worried that we will not be able to wander into the village in the evening-we loved the bands etc on in the evening. If you have been there could you please let me know your opinions on the site and if you can walk into the village etc..

Thanks!

We have stayed down the road at La Puma twice & had paid our deposit for Tour des Prises last year before we bought our own van in the Vendee.

Tour always looked a fabulous site, (which was why we booked it!) The pool looked good & it looked a very pretty site with direct access onto the bike path, (you MUST take your bikes).

La Couarde would be a couple of miles of a walk, but easily bikeable. When ours were little, we had a trailgator attachment for them. As well as the swimming pool, you have the sea a short walk, or even shorter bike ride away, you walk left from the site, across the road, then through Henri IV' s hunting forest to the beach-about 1/2 a Mile in total.

Although I've never stayed at La Tour, I have seen it & even booked a holiday there. It looked a fabulous site & I'm sure you'll have a great holiday there.

Oh, also, La Tour is situated in the middle of grapevine & sunflower fields: a really pretty setting.
Bonnes Vacances!

We have stayed at both and prefer le Remondeau for its location - for beach and evening. La Tour feels slightly away from things by comparison and the pool is nothing special compared to the pool area of L'ocean.

I quite agree but Le Remondeau was fully booked so...at least Les Prises is only a cycle ride away! Can you tell me, is the hook up at Les Prises a 2 or 3 pin-I guess what I mean is do I need to go out and buy a continental adopter. I know at Le Remondeau it was the same as in the UK.

We stayed at Les Prises last year - it is by the cycle paths, La Couarde is a few mins on a bike where there is an excellent boulangerie for morning pastries, you will find it by the longest queue.

I am pretty sure the hook-up is 3-pin.
