Camping La Foret Holiday Park

Small but perfectly formed and sitting just south of Nantes mean that it’s easy to get to this lovely little camp site. Easy access makes it great for younger families who don’t do long  journeys so well and means it’s great for half term get-aways and long weekend breaks as well as your annual holidays. There is a small and efficient reception where they’re happy to talk to you in English (plus about 4 other languages if you really insist) Dogs are welcome here and there is a great laundry where you can wash the kids Tees and shorts.

Accommodation comes in 61 pitches so you have some idea about how small and cosy this site really is.

Staying under canvas at La Foret does not mean roughing it at all. Tents have two or three bedrooms and a separate living and kitchen area with outside patio space. The kitchens are well equipped with gas rings and grills and with the gas barbecues you have everything you need for some memorable holiday meals. This year the tens all have new canvasses, inside and out, which means you will be able to open out your living space to really enjoy what this lovely little campsite has to offer.

Facilities & Activities at Camping la Foret

Feeding the family can be demanding on holiday and there is a lovely on-site take-away serving chicken and chips, hot dogs, sausages and lasagne.

There are two lovely pools which are perfect for all the family, including toddlers who have their own pool. If the pool is too much like hard work then there are plenty of sun loungers on the terrace so just lay back and relax. You can also get involved with table tennis and football, and there is a TV and games room with pool, table football and electronic games so why not organise your own Olympics this year. You can also hire cycles which is for spreading wings outside camp.

Off site you should head for Plage du pont d’Yeu which is a really lovely beach that’s perfect for small families. You can also find tennis, windsurfing, quad biking, horse riding, golf in the local area. The local countryside is full of pretty towns and villages with markets shops and cafes and St Jean de Monts has some particularly good restaurants if you are looking to take family out to sample French lifestyle. Other local attractions include Sealand Aquarium de Noirmoutier, Planete Sauvage animal safari park and Futuroscope which is a media and technology there park with really funky modern buildings.

Family Travel Guide to Vendee – France

Vendee is a name you may not have heard of. It’s not as well-known as Brittany or Normandy which is a shame really as it does have so much to offer a family on holiday.

    A medium sized campsite with a lovely pool and lounge area but little else to do onsite. The site is kept clean and the pitches were more than big enough it just lacked the cutting edge of what you’d expect from a family campsite – the shop sold very little just the bare essentials and the onsite takeway while tasty wasn’t always reliable. We had a lovely traditional French meal at Jumieges, a small village just a brisk walk away from the site, the village also has a shop cheaper than the one onsite. Little onsite entertainment and services for young children but older (mature) teens may enjoy the quietude.

    Not far from the coast although the weather wasn’t beach material while we were there. Overall a nice campsite for couples and families just lacking the extra facilities of other campsites in the area although I quite enjoyed the clutter free site myself.
