- 2km from a beach to forage for oysters, mussels and clams
- Pool, fitness area and summer entertainment for all ages
- Snack bar and food shop
How does foraging for your own mussels, oysters and clams sound to you? While on holiday on the French coast, toes in damp sand – and then sizzling the lot up among a good glug of wine back at your coastal site that evening? Have the tasty lot with a stay at the Loire-Atlantique's Camping Les Vallons de l'Océan, a couple of kilometres from the wide beach of Portmain, where the mentioned molluscs can be ferreted for in low tide.
Or might you prefer a seafood platter dished up to you already done? Les Vallons de l'Océan is also only four kilometres from medieval city of Pornic and the many restaurants among its cobbled streets for some of the same. It's also near the old town of Guérande for yet more (Guérande overlooks the famed peninsula salt marshes too, so pick up some souvenir Fleur de sel salt at the town market to bring back for cooking at home). The famed island of Noirmoutier is to the south just off the Vendée coast.
Back at base, Les Vallons de l'Océan has a heated outdoor pool with waterslides to keep all ages busy, along with an outdoor fitness area, pétanque court and miniature golf. Sports tournaments are organised in July and August.
French food is covered on site too, with a snack bar and grocery shop to stock up on essentials and order fresh bread and pastries for a French breakfast in the morning.

Medieval towns, beaut beaches and old and famed salt marshes are the lie of the land around here, along with a good range of local biking and hiking trails and wildlife watching around the coast and the Guérande peninsula.
Have a potter around Pornic first, for those seafood restaurants and its old port; next up should be Guérande, for more restaurants, fifteenth century walls and the Collegiate Church of Saint Aubin – for eating alfresco in town, the cafés and restaurants around the church are top picks.
If you're interested in how the Guérande peninsula became a salt scavenging spot, the salt marsh museum in Batz-sur-Mer tells its salty tale, and if you want to buy samples, the marsh workers sell coarse salt and sea salt flakes around the peninsula from June to September.
Another famed destination in the region is the island of Noirmoutier, with twelfth century castle, old port, Friday market, and sailing, fishing and windsurfing in its waters.
Plenty of cycle and walking paths meander around the island too, so hire a bike to take around the Chaise forest, or pick up some info from the local tourist office about where best to islandly go.
