Stayed for 7 nights in July 2015 with partner and daughter.

What a fantastic site, cannot recommend it enough. We will be going back.

Welcome was excellent and the receptionist was friendly, helpful and spoke perfect English.

Site is well laid out with pitches away from the main activities but still well serviced. Pitch was a decent size and we were able to get the RV in 'length ways, thus freeing up the front of the pitch totally and creating a more open feel. That said the pitch was such a size this wouldn't have mattered if we couldn't.

Facilities were very good; modern block with laundry, washing up and ladies and gents showers/toilets with plenty of facilities to choose from. The site pool and bar area were excellent. The activities were beyond expectation and kept my 10 year old constantly occupied. There is a shop on site and this is very well stocked. The restaurant was always busy so didn't get the opportunity to use it, the take away was ok.

We hired a car whilst here and spent the afternoon on the Velorail - worth it for the novelty and exercise! Also visited Puy du Fou - absolutely amazing and well worth the visit. At 30 euros it is incredible value as well.

Will undoubtedly return.

We spent a lovely fortnight at La Garangeoire in August. The weather was mostly warm and sunny, but we did also have a few rainy days and very cool nights (more on that later). Our pitch was grassy and fairly flat, in one of the terraced areas to the north of the main toilet block. Our pitch was long and narrow though, which meant it was a bit of a squeeze to get our day room tent (kitchen) up in the place we wanted, but it worked out ok in the end. Some pitches have much more shade than others, so it's worthwhile asking when you book. The site is very quiet at night, which was perfect for us.

The facilities on site are superb. All were clean and well maintained. The kids loved the pool and slides, play park, table tennis, go karts, pedalos//canoes etc. It is a bit of hassle to get a sunbed at the pool sometimes, but we found that if you just hung around for a few minutes or timed your arrival just right (eg just before lunch) then it was easier. The on site restaurant was excellent, a much higher standard of food than most uk high street establishments! The café gourmand is something not to be missed. We also found the pizzas from the takeaway to be very nice. The mini market is basic but has most of the emergency supplies you'll need - including a small 'English' section and a large wine section!

Throughout the site the staff are very helpful and polite. The reception staff are there as a fountain of all knowledge. I saw one of the team outside helping a uk car owner get his car towed to the garage for repairs. We saw the owners out doing jobs, Anne helping out at reception, Eric cutting hedges. Their pride in the site is there for all to see.

There is a good selection of beaches nearby depending on whether you want calm waves/big surf/rock pools. Most have beach cafés and toilets. St Gilles and Les Sables d'Olonne offer a big seaside town atmosphere, both with large marinas, little shops and the usual ice cream and waffle sellers! These towns make good places for an evening out too.

In all, we had a great time, but were a little disappointed with the cold nights (10 degrees) which meant it was too cold to sit outside the tent at night, once the kids had gone to bed, with a quiet drink. This is usually our favourite part of camping, so I feel I have missed out! The cold evenings also meant that the garden behind the site bar was completely empty every night and everyone was crammed onto the inside space. Each night we gave up trying to get a table. People came at 6:30and didn't leave until 11. 00. The staff said that this was the worst August they had had for several years, and as we have camped in the area before we had to agree. We are hoping to go back next year, so fingers crossed for warm evenings.

Just left after 8nights on premium tent pitch-sites is very good and has bar/restaurant/shop/pool as you would expect for 5 star site. However would not pay extra for premium pitch again-there were much bigger pitches on site and fridge hire is available.

Also had to pay 60 euro deposit which we could not see mentioned in the paperwork anywhere.

The atmosphere of the site changed dramatically with the arrival of the retires and their caravans / motorhomes - most seemed to be return visitors - all very friendly and informative. Puy du fou cinescenie spectacular and worth the hours journey back at 1am!

Stayed at La Garangeoir for two weeks in July with my wife and three of our children aged 17, 16 & 14.

The site is kept immaculately clean and boasts a large range of activities for the younger age group, 5-12. That said, my children love this site and this was our third stay in as many years. The restaurant has a limited menu, however, they have introduced a specials board which does vary the menu. It is nice to book an outside table for one night whilst you are there and enjoy the atmosphere.

The staff are all very friendly and generally all speak English. The toilet/shower blocks are very clean with plenty of hot water.

The site does get very busy in July/August as it is very popular, however, it does cope well.

It is approximately 5km from a beach and 5km from a supermarket.

They do arrange entertainment at night and you can sit in the garden behind the bar in the sunshine to watch.

I would definitely recommend this site to anyone, however, if you want a beach holiday then you would have to travel every day.

Another excellent holiday at La Garangeoire, obviously helped by beautiful weather. Big pitches we have a water and drainage pitch, premium pitches also have bbqs and table and chairs and I think these pitches are even bigger. All the pitches are separated by hedgerows. I know several people mention not enough toilets in the main block but I never had to queue. There are at least 4 toilet/shower blocks all with laundry facilities.

There is a lot of entertainment for children and there is always an evening event from disco to quiz night and Creperie evening. There are yoga classes, French classes and lots more. The site has swimming pools but we don't use them, they look really good but are very busy and you cant always get a sun bed

The site is a little remote with the nearest town about a mile and half away where you will find a lovely Patisserie, but there are some beautiful beaches within half hour drive. There is a big supermarket within 20 min drive and the on site shop has a good choice of Provisions. There are 2 bars and an excellent takeaway. Also an ice cream counter with more than 20 flavours to choose from. There is a restaurant but we didn't go this year, last year we thought the portions were very small. It is a very friendly site and we always get chatting to other campers and meet up with regular visitors as a lot of people return year after year.

Definitely a place to revisit.

We stayed at La Garangeoire over the May half term for 2 weeks. We booked direct in a 3 bed pergola which was immaculately clean with plenty of storage space. Our only criticism was the bed which was very uncomfortable and for which I'd take a mattress topper next time. We were also positioned next to a big playing green which my 4yr old and 6 yr old loved.

We all thought the site was great, plenty to do, very friendly, helpful staff and nicely busy. The supermarket in La MotheAchard was quite expensive but there is a lidl if you explore & don't want to pay so much.

As other reviewers have said, the pool area is quite small for the number of people using the site- it was very busy and the site wasn't full. Wouldn't stop us coming back though - we loved it. If you can, cycle down to the lake and find the creperie, it's well worth it.
