General

  • With direct access to a lake, part of a 20-hectare leisure park
  • A 20-minute drive from Planète Sauvage and an hour from Puy du Fou
  • Terrace snack bar, summer entertainment, play area and Sunday dances

What un grand place indeed. Family-friendly Les Rives de Grand Lieu in the historic Loire-Atlantique town of Saint-Philbert-de-Grand-Lieu has direct access to a highly scenic lake for long leisurely days of swimming, paddling, fishing and wandering waterside (picnics: mandatory), and is in front of a handsome 20-hectare leisure park where the adventurous can tackle archery, golf, windsurfing and a whole heap more. (Or have a scenic wander with another picnic; pretty places are all around.)

Le locale of this newly set up site is grand indeed too, about 20 minutes' drive from Planète Sauvage if you're on holiday with little beasties, and an hour from the splendid historical theme park of Puy du Fou for adventures for all ages. Then there's Nantes, 25 minutes away, the beaut beaches of the Vendée and La Baule, 30 and 45 minutes away and the popular seaside resort of Pornic, reachable within 40 minutes' drive…

The five-hectare lake next to the site is part of a family leisure park, which has several shaded picnic spots for lazy days as well as outdoor activities for all ages and free swimming in July and August. There's also an amusement park for ages three and up, where your energetic offspring can have pony rides, bounce about on trampolines or inflatables, or take their intrepid selves off on a free orientation course.

A happily wide range of activities are arranged on site by the friendly team in high season: if your lot don't fancy getting out onto the water on a kayak or investigating the lake's depths with a fishing rod, there's also bowling and golf to roll along to, zumba to get puffed at, and treasure hunts and group games for teens to get stuck into. The entertainment team mixes it all up with a difference programme every week, so seek them out on arrival to see what's on offer during your own hol. (No need to be disappointed that you can't make your swish moves out of season either, as a dance is held every Sunday in the main big yurt.)

A tree-based playground is also around for kids to investigate; a tennis court is at your disposal, and a TV room awaits for less sunny days or peaceful evenings. A terrace snack bar serves breakfasts, hot and cold sandwiches, pizza, salads, pastries, ice cream and drinks of the soft and hard variety. Several restaurants are within 10 minutes' walk.

Kids', teens' and adult bikes are available to hire, along with a couple of electric bikes and child seats and trailers dependent on availability. Most sensibly, helmets are provided on site too – so you can all keep your noggins safe.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

For me a stopover, but it could be outstanding, with a few tweaks. 04/08/2017

    Lovely facilities, mostly quite new, helpful reception and staff. Well laid out with a mix of shade and sun on pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Electric points on our designated point were not working. It was lucky I have an extra long cable!
    VERY noisy - young men shouting and roaming around the site until 1 am -I could see why people would find this intimidating. Certainly kept me awake.

Directions


Local attractions

Hire a bike to get out and about around this pretty setting and to ride along to the local town of Saint-Philbert-de-Grand-Lieu, just over a kilometre away. Cultural activities and events run in town all year round.

Less than half an hour's drive will land you at famed Planète Sauvage, the 80-hectare safari zoo park home to around a thousand beasties from 150 species. Visitors can view the animals by car in the safari park setting, or amble around on foot around the pedestrian section and the dolphinarium Marine City, the bush village with crocodiles and other scaly critters, and the jungle trail to the flamingos and monkeys.

Time must be taken in spectacular Nantes too, for the famed botanical gardens and the Château des ducs de Bretagne, the former home of the dukes of Brittany and the historical centre of Brittany until 1941. Local wine Muscadet is also a must here, to sample in one of the city centre's cosy bars; foodwise, tuck into eel, shrimp and sardines from the local ports of La Turballe and Le Croisic, and source the freshest of local produces in one of the city's 18 markets.
