Booked this site after reading all the good reviews about it. We were not disappointed and find that we can not add much more to what had already been said about it. About 20mins drive to the coast one had the best of both worlds. Some days we took our bikes with us as there are lovely cycle tracks around beaches. Other days we cycled locally. Apremont has a lovely chateau and a nearby lake which has beachside and numerous activities for children. All v clean and tidy. All in all a lovely wk and a site that we would be happy to use again.

Don't want to rate this site to highly as we want to book again! However, a superb site. Owners lovely, can not do enough for you. My son was unwell and they phoned for a doctors appointment and took us there. Facilities exceptionally clean. Great play area, lovely pool. Village minutes away for essentials. Hyper you and Lidl 10 mins drive. Coast 25 mins away. Several beaches to choose from. Food available some evening on site via mobile catering. Everything we could have ever wanted on our first venture into France and we would definitely come again. Thank you Florence and Pascal

Stayed for 7 days on the site. Well sign posted and easy to find. Site was quiet but well maintained. Owners very friendly and helpful. Toilet block very good. Pitch was large and grass cut. Can be very busy in peak season but during my visit was quiet. Lovely swimming pool on site and a recent covered area near reception has been built.

Small village of mâché has store for essentials and mâché itself is 20 minutes from Atlantic Coast.

Plenty to do in the area.

Val De Vie is a gem of a site tucked away in the small town of Mache.

So what makes people give it the good reviews it gets ? its not got the big water park style slides and it doesn't have a bar or even full on nighttime entertainment. What it does have is that personal touch and a great clientèle of like minded campers.

Its a mix of French, english, Dutch and even some from Belgium.

The location is superb if you want a good base for cycling or exploring by car. The village consists of a very good patisserrie, a mini mart, and two tabacs. One of the tabacs sells fishing gear too.

A very good hyperu is down the road about 10mins drive for cheap fuel and anything you could want in the store. A lidl is next door to it too.

The towns church sounds out the time on the hour and only one ring on the half hour.

On our first morning this came as a shock to us but for the rest of the holiday we didn't really hear it as we got used to it.

Our two kids loved the freedom of the site, roaming around on their bikes to play at the play area or with new found friends. Anyone driving around the site drove slowly as everyone was aware of the numerous children playing around it.

The toilet and shower block was spottless and cleaned many times a day. We never had to wait for a shower.

Our pitch allowed us to pitch our large Trailer tent but not quite enough room for our car as well. This wasn't a problem as Pascale just said to park on a nearby empty pitch.

The owners Pascale and Flo are very friendly and welcoming and really make it very homely staying there. They organise various things throughout the week like wine tasting or homemade crafts and even a food wagon.

Im sure abnyone who has been before will say the 'Boule' competition between the campers is a great evening. You get to meet other campers while playing boule and having a glass of vino. The atmosphere is so good and one guy was even playing an accordion.

Many of the campers on this site have been time and time again such is the quality of it.

Around the local area you have apremont with its chateaux and water tower. You can get a ticket at the chateaux which covers both for a small amount.

There are some excellent beaches within 25 mins plus depending what you like. Our kids loved Sauveterre as the bodyboarding surf was great but it also had rock pools with stacks of starfish when the tide went out.

There are also various local festivals that go on and different times in the year.

On our first night we were lucky enough to go to the local 'quail festival' We had a superb meal of fresh fruit, quail, harricot beans and a pastry all washed down with local vino while sitting on big tables and benches with the locals. We were made to feel very welcome by those around us, it was a magical slice of french life for us.

There was also an evening of entertainment for us to watch with a mix of english and french songs.

No entrance fee, no parking restrictions and no idiots just superb family entertainment with the locals.

Its shame we weren't still out there for the festival on the lake which sounded just as good.

Overall this site was excellent with the touches of modern life along with the nice traditional stuff too. Wifi is available and the entrance to the site has access control so no unwanted vehicles can get on it or come on the site late at night.

Tres bien Pascale and Flo Tres Bien

We arrived on a Sunday evening about 6 pm after a long drive, without having booked, to a lovely, warm welcome from Pascal and Florence. This set the scene for the next 10 days. Their whole ethos is to make sure that every single guest has the best holiday possible. Any problems (few and far between) are sorted promptly and with a smile, Florence's motto being 'one problem, one solution'! They set up a television in the marquee for the world cup matches and even provided some free alcohol and free drinks. Service indeed! Florence speaks excellent English but both she and Pascal were very patient and encouraging with my attempts at my 'schooldays' French.

We had a serviced pitch which was large and sunny, although the non service pitches, mostly set out in a circle, are a bit smaller, particularly those in the inner circle. The toilet and showers were always spotless and there are facilities for the disabled. No shop (although they do sell ice creams) or bar on site but a small supermarket, bakery and bar, less than 5 minutes walk, literally. Good medium sized supermarket in Coex and huge hypermarket in Aizenay. Easy drive to the coast and to the Ile de Noirmoutier. The mobile homes are grouped together in the bottom half of the campsite, slightly apart from the camping pitches, and the owners were the friendliest we have met. Plenty of wheeled toys available for little ones plus a children's playground and the pool looks very inviting, although we didn't use it. A great site for little ones although the few teens there were, seemed to entertain themselves quite happily.

We are a family of 3 adults, one of whom is a wheelchair user and all we want is a quiet, welcoming, friendly campsite which in early July is exactly what we got in bucketloads at Camping Val de Vie.

This was our 2nd stay on Val de Vie, and it was a complete success :) The lovely owners and their children were great hosts, and the cleanliness and very high standards on site were consistent with what we enjoyed last time.

The pool is cleaned daily, has great sunbeds around it, and is safe for children. The facilities are all kept perfectly hygienically and I really cannot say anything other than positive! I highly recommend this site.

The location is perfect for a base in the area. The local village is lovely, and I particularly recommend that you see as much as possible of this place. So much to do. Shopping facilities are more than adequate and bigger shops are just a short drive.

We can't wait to return, and without a doubt it will be this year because of everything above :)
