La Garangeoire Holiday Park
Situated in western France in the Vendee region is the wonderful site of La Garangeoire. Nestling amongst fields of sunflowers, lovely green woods and lakes this park provides a stunning backdrop for a perfect family holiday. The site is open from 5 May until 9 September and no matter what your family size or whatever you want from a holiday home you’re sure to find it here.
If you’re looking for a chalet you can choose between two and three bedroom, with or without a sun deck (barbecues are also available) and even one with a mezzanine space that makes a great play area for the kids. Chalets come with all mod cons including oven, gas hob, grill, fridge freezer and microwave and also include a stereo iPod dock and hairdryer. Basically, everything you need for a home from home for you French adventure.
You can also choose to stay in one of the two types of tents. With sleeping for up to six people and enough kitchen equipment to feed your tribe (more bangers and mash than fine dining though) both types of tents have living space as well. In the safari tent your living space is covered yet open air (think about the name of the tent – come on, do keep up). With a total of 358 pitches, all on grass and a larger pitch size of at least 100m2 your bonnes vacance will be off to a great start at La Garangeoires.
There is a friendly reception where they’re happy to talk to you in English (or a bevy of other European beauties as well). You can also get online here for a small charge. The kids will be pleased to know that you can bring up to 2 dogs (so there’s no need to leave Spot at home). Laundry facilities are also provided along with disabled facilities but it might be worth checking how they’d fit your specific needs before you book.
