Reviewer: Mrs happycamper 1 review from this member

Agree with the other reviews. We have spent 8 nights here and found Eric and Martine to be great hosts.

Not to be missed is the modules and frites night- absolutely superb modules with live entertainment, a cocktail and pudding included -all for 15 euros a head!

The only minor gripes is that the pitches are all so well used there is only patchy brown grass left, but there are pristine pitches left that they aren't allocating to anyone.

Also, being under oak trees, we experienced a steady thwack of acorns falling onto the tent! So, really, nothing much to moan about, and a lot to praise.

Le Bois Joli - a really nice campsite not top of the range but all facilities good & clean although a little basic. Takes a while to find the toilet blocks (all without toilet seats) althgh better hygienically takes a bit of getting use to. The campsite is one of the smallest we have visited & is predominately occupied by the French with only one English speaker which all adds to the character. The toilets & showers are all mixed although obviously separate cubicles. There is a small playpark which the kids loved & two good clean pools (one paddling pool) the swimming area does not have any shade & can get alittle warm at times. There are donkeys, horses & two resident storks on site. The campsite is made up of chalet type accommodation for the majority & although we are here in august it is by no means full. They have different themed nights & serve basic food. There is also a resident pizza van that does homemade pizza chips etc.

Places to visit - so far we have found that from the site you have to drive as you are too far away from anything to walk althgh lots of people cycle. The beaches around here are lovely st Jean du mont lovely sand, good water although a little commercialised, st hilaire good sand & waters although when the tide comes in no beach left, le sables olonne absolutely lovely great beach, walks through the trees & on to the beach. All beaches have life guards.

Puy du Fou - is a must. Approximately 1hr 45 mins from site 4 euros on toll road. It is a very long day but the shows are spectacular especially the Vikings. We brought our tickets whilst out here but I believe savings can be made being brought either from camping or caravan club or buying them during the winter online for the following summer.

Apresmont - man made beach on reservoir, pedaloes to hire, small children's playground, & restaurant.

As other review has mentioned, site good, large pitches and services good - although if needing the loo - toilet tissue was required.Take your own! Plenty of night time activities arranged including floodlit night swim.

Location was lovely, on the edge of a pretty village with local shops with basic supplies available.

Obviously popular site with the French, very few Brits during our stay.

Martine and Eric were very friendly as were most of our fellow campers. However, one major issue for us was that dogs were allowed to wander the campsite freely and it needs to be said that possibly due to our position on on the main route of the site, French dog walkers were not too fussy on where their dogs did their business on our pitch and less fussy regarding clearing up after their dogs. On two occasions we had cause to request dog mess being picked up and despite being offered poo bags to do it with, we were met with some consternation! As dog owners ourselves, this was, in our opinion, a reasonable request and dog owners should have more respect for their neighbours.

Although we enjoyed our week here, we would not visit again.

We booked onto this site whilst already touring on holiday in France. Wanted two pitches for two caravans. No problems at all. Martine spoke good english (better than my french!).

We were very pleased with the site when we arrived. It was very clean and owners Eric and Martine worked hard to keep a good site. It is mainly frequented by french holiday makers either in touring caravans or trailer tents but many of the pitches were mobile-homes. Although the site had childrens area and swimming pool we were quite amazed at how well behaved and polite the children were. There was only one other English family there during our 4 night stay.

The pitches were of good size and each pitch had its own water tap. Electric supply was 10amp (two pin adaptor) and Eric soon came along with an extension lead for us when we found ours was too short. Nothing was a problem for this man. He was the most cheerful Frenchman I have come across. Each morning as he cycled round his site he would bellow out "Bonjour Anglais" as he passed our van.

We didn't spend much time in the on-site bar but there was always something going on in there, karaoke, bingo etc. Eric tried to invite us to the bingo night, we said we might pop in and went in for the last half hour (we thought we ought too!)
Martine was busy calling out the numbers in French and English to a 100% French audience! - just for us!

The toilets and showers were first class and the village of Bois De Cene is right next to the site. Five minutes walk finds the Boulangerie, Bureau Tabac, Post Office and minimarket (Spar) for all essentials. Bike hire can be made on site. A 10 minute drive into Challans will take you to Leclerc's Supermarche where you can buy anything from bread to a sit on mower.

At the rear of the site is a small football pitch and our caravan pitch was facing this - great to watch the kids playing there.

Ideal for couples young or old and those with younger children. Probably not too much for teenagers (no games machines or arcades or disco nights).

The nesting storks are quite fascinating to watch. One calls out to the other calling it back to nest, the one flying in soars around the sky checking it out before landing. Quite a spectacle.

The other entertainment was their resident donkey and pony in the field adjacent to the site. Everyone takes apples or carrots to feed them and the donkey brays continuously as you approach it. One day they put a stallion into the field to mate with the pony - the noise and commotion was heard all over the campsite - So was the noise of all the young kiddie spectators all saying something in French, probably "What are they doing Mummy?"

Although this site is a commercial one, it is run more like a family site - far better than most of gigantic commercial sites nearby. We would certainly go back there again for a few days.
