This is a lovely site. Andrew and Janette were friendly and helpful. The location is peaceful and well looked after and the pitches are large. The amenities barn is kept clean and has toilets, showers, and good washing facilities. Wi -fi was free and available in this area and in the BBQ area, much to the relief of our son. We found the bread ordering service and the library nice extra touches.
The site is well placed for visits to the coast and the nearby towns are attractive. We would certainly visit again.
This could be our perfect French campsite! We stayed here for 2 weeks and had a brilliant time. The (English) owners are friendly and helpful and everything else just falls into place from there. The location is quiet and rural and yet also not far from local towns and beautiful beaches. The whole site is very well cared for, the pitches are massive (twice the size of most campsites), most pitches have electric hook ups and there are plenty of water taps. There is lots of open space for kids to play in although no play area as such. The amenities barn houses toilets, showers, and sinks for washing up, personal washing and clothes washing. Also heaps of local information, a table tennis table and free wifi, plus I think a washing machine and fridge freezer although we didn't use these. Despite the site being full while we were there everything was kept very clean and there was always enough hot water. We recommend taking advantage of the ordering service for the Boulangerie - just leave your requests for the next morning with the owners. We found so much to do in this area that we couldn't fit it all in in a fortnight and are seriously considering coming back for another 2 weeks next summer
We spent nearly three weeks last August on this site and had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable time here, and is certainly the best value for money we've found in all the time we've been on family camping holidays.
The owners are lovely, and the site has a real 'home from home' quality.
The pitches are enormous and there is plenty of room for the kids to play and let off steam without getting under everyone else's feet.
The facilities are quite basic, although perfectly adequate for our needs, and honestly described on the site's website. Everything is kept clean and tidy, the showers are nice and warm, the washing machine does its job well and quickly, the wi-fi worked fine for us, and the children and their new-found friends enjoyed the table tennis table.
Their home-cooked chips are fantastic, and the bread from the local bakery is excellent value, delivered fresh every morning.
Having tried to find the site without a map, I would strongly recommend having one with you when you are first heading towards the site. We got completely lost on the way and had to phone for directions, (which were cheerfully given), and having once found it we had no difficulty finding our way back to it again.
There are a couple of supermarkets down the road in St Gervais, and the site is within easy striking distance of lovely sandy beaches and the wonderful island of Noirmoutier.
We had a wonderful holiday here, and thinking about it several months later makes me wish we were back there now. We are certainly hoping to return one day, and have no hesitation in recommending the site to anyone looking for a friendly and peaceful place to stay in this lovely part of the world.
We visited in August 2013 and were there for a week, very good weather, sunny every day bar one when it rained during the day although we were able to sit out in the evening.
Very large pitches - we had 3 for our party of 3 families and could have easily managed with 2; 3 x 5 man tents and 1 x 3 man tent.
Quiet site during the day but the cockerels started crowing very early; having said that this is what you expect in the country.
Friendly owners, great to be able to order breakfast, croissant/pastries, and bread for lunch. Had chips, which the owners had cooked, one night which were very nice.
Toilet block could do with another hand basin (there are two in cubicles). Nearest supermarket/petrol station under a 10 minute drive away.
Visited Ile de Noirmoutier three times, really enjoyed it there; plenty of nice beaches and the 'capital' very pretty, good for shops, restaurants and ice cream parlours. You can either go via the modern bridge or over on the tidal causeway if you get the timing right. We also enjoyed Pornic which was very picturesque.
Overall we had a great holiday and would recommend the campsite.
As a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 young children aged 8, 6 and 4), this camp site was brilliant for meeting all our needs. We arrived in the evening, after a tiring drive from the tunnel, to a warm greeting from the owners. We had a wonderful pitch for our large tent with plenty of room around it. The pitches are spaced out with hedges for privacy. The shower and toilet facilities were clean and the family shower room meant that we could all have a shower together with plenty of room. Plenty of hot water at all times for showering and washing up and never waited to use any of the facilities. Fridge and freezer available for campers to use. There were a selection of rackets etc for the children to use on the field set aside for the children to play on. Library with a selection of books for campers to borrow. During our stay, the children made friends and were able to wander around the site which was private and safe. We used the bakery delivery service a couple of times and is was lovely to be able to pick up our croissants and pain for breakfast (reasonable price of €1 a croissant and same for the pain). Wine and ice creams also for sale but we spent a lot of the day travelling around the area so didn't purchase any. We all loved the town of St Gilles Croix de Vie with the harbour, restaurants and shops. We found some lovely quiet beaches along the coast between St Jean de Monts and St Hilaire de Riez. Would recommend this camp site if you are looking to visit this region and want some peace and quiet.
