 We have visited this site for over 17 years !

The site owners, Tom and Eleanor have worked so hard to provide a wonderful, peaceful, quiet, and above all else scrupulously clean campsite, with everything you will need for a one night stopover, or a protracted week or two in the wonderful Vendee countryside.

We have kept two caravans here on long term storage and have no hesitation whatsoever in giving them a well, rewarded 10 out of ten for the services they provide.

The location is excellent being a comfortable drive from St Malo or Caen, and when my son was younger we could trek off to the coast, armed with all the beach paraphernalia, and to return to to an oasis of peace in the evening for a bbq and quiet quality family time.

You could not ask for more from a campsite in France. Although we no longer tour we will undoubtedly return.

Ps donít tell anyone else about it ! Or we might not be able to book in Ö.

 Once again we enjoyed our "sejour" at La Baudonniere. We leave our caravan in storage and it works great for us.

La baudonniere is "Rural" but is very conveniently situated for trips out to La Rochelle and the coast or to Saumur and the "Loire". Good clean Toilets/Showers.

Nice uncrowded swimming pool. Good value Storage and site fees.

 We store our caravan here and for the past three years have visited twice a year. We never get round to going anywhere else because we love the site and the area.

Tom and Eleanor are friendly and always helpful, the facilities (toilets, showers, swimming pool, etc) are great and the location suits us perfectly - ideal for trips to the coast, green Venice and other interesting places.

It is also ideal for those who want to visit the Puy de Fou - which is really worth a visit.

 We have just returned from our latest holiday in France. We go to France twice a year and store our caravan at Manoir De La Baudonniere.

This is our fifth year there. We always receive a really warm and friendly welcome from Tom and Eleanor (Jay the dog too), and our touring caravan is ready and waiting for us on the campsite pitch for when we arrive.

We normally stay for a week or so at the beginning and end of our touring holiday. It is a great base from which to explore the Vendee and the many other areas which are of interest and easily accessible from here.

Everyone is so friendly and all the site facilities are excellent. It is such a pleasure to arrive there after driving from the ferry port or upon returning from weeks of touring.

Manoir De La Baudonniere is in the most delightful rural setting and our stay has always been wonderfully relaxing and peaceful. Just perfect for us.

Reviewer: Dicnor 1 review from this member

 This site is ideal for us because of the location, owners and climate. We have been visiting this site for the past 5 years, usually 3 times a year, this year 4 times.

It is above all, a friendly site, where you can get involved, or remain on your own if you wish. With regard to the reviewer who intimated that the site was noisy, we were on the site at the time of his complaint, and are totally independent as we were not involved.

I was aware that a small group of people were talking until about 12 midnight, I was unaware that they carried on a further 2 hours, as suggested. And as the reviewer stated the incident did not occur again, so why did he leave a day earlier.

I was made aware of the complaint, as it's the first one I have ever heard of on this site. As far as 'regulars', surely that indicates to others that the site is very popular and friendly site and is revisited year after year.

As we are retired after working all our lives, if we wish to return to a certain site, why should this be frowned upon.

The site is a family site and a little understanding goes a long way, it would be churlish of us to complain about children playing at 7 am, that's what children do. And may they long continue to do so.

Reviewer: Taneth16 5 reviews from this member

 This year we stayed at this site for the latter two and a half weeks of August. We all love it here and this is our 3rd summer spent here. The owners Tom and Eleanor are so friendly as are their polite children (with whom our son has formed a great friendship).

The site is a field adjacent to the Manoir, it is mainly flat, sloping gently to the far end, with lovely sunset views in the evenings. There are ample water and electricity points with trees spotted around should you need some shade. We take our dog and there is always a shady spot for him throughout the day during hotter weather.

There is a well stocked games room in one of the barns with pool table, ping pong table, tv and sofa etc and an assortment of games. The pool is heated and is always clean and inviting. The toilet and shower block is clean and plenty large enough for the site, Loo roll is provided and hot water whenever you need it. It also has sinks for washing up, a fridge, a washing machine and dryer (both linked to a pay meter). There is also well stocked book shelves and information leaflets/notices about the local area.

There are so many places to see around the area (car needed for most), Puy du Fou, O Gliss water park, Mervent, Vouvant, Several excellent beaches, Poitevan canals and marshes. I could go on. We have enjoyed cycling and walking too.

This is in my opinion a little gem of a site - if youíre looking for an all singing all dancing eurocamp experience then this may not be for you, but if like us, you want a safe, friendly, clean smallish site, where you can relax in peace or if you choose, you can head out to explore the beautiful vendee area of France, then this site fits the bill.

The cherry on the cake would be the very helpful and friendly proprietors Tom and Eleanor, who are always happy to assist, advise, and generally ensure your stay is a vary pleasant one.

Negatives. Well I guess that's down to opinion and personal preference, we love it here!

 We store our van at this site and visit several times per year. The owners, Tom and Eleanor, are the friendliest and most helpful couple you could wish to meet - nothing is a trouble for them.

The site is basically a large field with numbered but undelineated pitches all with electricity points. There is a very well maintained amenity block with wash-up sinks and unisex toilets and showers with lashings of hot water. For the kids there is a lovely heated pool and play area. For 2018 there was a resident site warden employed to keep the facilities up to scratch.

It is disappointing that some reviewers find the number of 'regulars' a problem as in my experience everyone is made welcome - you only have to speak to people to be included.

The surrounding area is very interesting being within striking distance of the Vendee coast without the hustle and bustle of the coastal sites. It is very convenient for visiting Puy de Fou and there are good restaurants in Les Herbiers, Pouzages and Chantonnay.

Reviewer: Ammdkids 26 reviews from this member

 This is a tricky review to write. We stayed at this site for 5 nights predominantly with the purpose of visiting Puy Du Fou. It's a small site with about 15 units, a lovely warm pool, clean toilets, camping fridges, play area and an indoor barn with pool table/table football and free Wifi. It has the potential to be a fabulous site and the owners were very friendly and it was a shame that it is the first site we have ever left a day early. The reason was unfortunately the noise at night. As others have mentioned this site was full of caravaners that return every year and although initially they were very friendly, the noise on the first night went on until 2am. We had a 4 year old with us. We had to complain and the owner did have a word which did improve things but it remained far noisier than the much larger Yelloh site we had spent out first 10 days in. We were the only non regulars and really as the last reviewer said we felt like we were outsiders. It was only half an hour from Puy du Fou which was a fantastic place.

Reviewer: Yachtmaster 1 review from this member

 The site is in an ideal location for us as it generally takes less than four hours to drive to the site from the St Malo ferry terminal.

Being retired, we avoid the peak holiday season from mid July to end of August and find the site peaceful during our stays.

The site has clean facilities and we find it very relaxing. There is a play area for children and there is also a heated swimming pool. Fortunately for us, it is a fairly small site and does not have the so called 'attractions' that some large commercial sites offer - (we would avoid such sites. ) The site is in the countryside and, although there is no on site shop, large supermarkets are a few kilometres away.

A number of those using the site store their caravans, and it is not unusual to meet someone who we have met before. However, in our experience, all have been friendly but not intrusive.

Tom and Eleanor own and run the site and we have always found them to be welcoming, friendly and accommodating.

We are very happy with the site as it is and wouldn't want anything changed.

Reviewer: Stephen15 5 reviews from this member

 We have kept caravan at this site for 4 years now and I feel that a response is necessary to the previous review. We have been to quite a few sites in France over the years but this is the one that we felt most welcome at from day one. Like many others on this forum we all have our favourite sites which we return to time and again when friendships are made and renewed each year. Naturally people get together for a glass of wine and a yarn but the noise is never excessive or late. Its called being friendly. To us, this is our special wee place in the sun where we spend our summers with old friends and new and we can thoroughly recommend it as a holiday site or a base for touring.
