General

  • Great location by the beach on the Atlantic coast
  • Lots of activities for everyone
  • Wonderful pool area: swim or stay and tan on the sun deck

Camping Les Ecureuils welcomes you to La Bernerie-en-Retz, on a wooded and landscaped five-hectare property in south Brittany in the heart of the Atlantic coast and close to Pornic. Tired of driving? That's not a problem here. The campsite is 350m from a sandy beach and only 400m from the village.

Spend the day on site lounging by the recently renovated heated pool area where you’ll find water games, a jacuzzi, fountains, paddling pool, waterslide and sun deck.

The friendly and easy-going team of entertainers will keep you busy and entertained throughout July and August:

- Mini club (ages 3-7): a variety of activities and workshops for younger children every morning
- Super club (ages 8-12): older children can take part in team games and sports each morning
- Adults' club: start the day with a workout - Zumba, power yoga, aquagym and bootcamp are run by the team. In the afternoon, sports tournaments are organised and include beach football, volleyball and archery.

All this and not forgetting a very important activity in France: the campsite offers pétanque tournaments every week during July and August.

Peak season also brings evening entertainment for all ages: live concerts, bingo, disco evenings with themes such as Hollywood and the Wild West, shows like Mamma Mia and a talent show where everybody can participate, as well as karaoke nights and games nights.

Please note

The indoor swimming pool is open between 01/04 and 24/09.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 01/05 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

    Most things.

    Disliked: 

    1.Slightly a little too far from the beach, for us as Old Gimmers with Grandchildren.

Clean facilities. Overpriced bar and snacks. Bumpy pitches. 13/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Kevin A. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Clean toilets and showers. Slides in the pool are good. Small site. Very French. Not a long walk to town or the beach (about 10 mins)
    Quite a small site so good for giving the kids some independence

    Disliked: 

    Unhelpful/unfriendly staff
    Toilet roll ran out very quickly after replenishing and only replaced once a day
    Very overpriced food and drink onsite and not much choice available
    Staff made no effort to include smaller children in the kids club activities. If ours were he only British ones there, they made no effort to speak to them in English, even though we knew they spoke English. Children who couldn't speak French or Dutch were excluded from many activities.
    Paid wifi was no better than the free, which was awful

    Pool was lovely

    Disliked: 

    Site was awful, some of staff were very rude the reception lady asked me for payment in full for pitch but I had already paid pitch up. Pitch size was smaller than advertised and there was no room for parking on pitch. Mainly people from Netherlands who seemed to think they owned the park and not many British. Toilets always out of order and very dirty.
    Would never come back here again we could not wait to leave.
