An Atlantic coast beach is a 600-metre amble from friendly and family-friendly Camping L'Océan in the Vendée – but you might put even that off for a bit to have a splash around its first-rate waterpark.
Semi covered so you can have dips whatever the weather, the heated waterpark spreads over 1,000m² of main pool, paddling pool, waterslides and Jacuzzi. There's also a sizeable outdoor pool, including more slides, a paddling pool with water toys, and space alongside for sunbathing… wifi access is available throughout the park too if you want to lounge and surf.
A full and lively programme of entertainment and activities runs in summer in and out of the water, including aqua gym, pony rides, gym sessions, sports tournaments, and nights for karaoke, dancing, music and magic. The kids' club takes ages six to 11, while teenagers can join the site team for a spot of sport.
Also around are a roomy bar, with snacks, takeaway service and games; a well-stocked shop selling groceries, souvenirs and beach gear, and a spacious and friendly restaurant, with plenty of terrace room.
Amenities include four sanitary blocks and a laundry room with tumble dryers.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From Roche sur Yon
Take the D760, the D42 and then the D160 signposted Sables d'Olonne. Take the exit signposted D760 -Saint Mathurin-Ile d'Olonne and continue on this road. Turn onto the D87 and cross Ile d'Olonne. Take the D38 up to Brem sur Mer. Our campsite will be signposted from there.
Camping L'Océan is a short stroll from the sands of Brem-sur-Mer, an Atlantic coast seaside town known for its beach and its vineyard established in the 14th century by local monks.
Under 10 minutes' drive from Brem is more of the seasidey same at Bretignolles-sur-Mer, home of a 13-kilometre beach popular with families (if you want a quieter Bretignolles beachy spot for the day, follow the Route de la Corniche from the town centre). One of the Vendée's many cycle paths is accessible from town too, from the beach a short distance to the shops and restaurants of Bretignolles town, and around the Parc de Morinières.
Another famed Vendée seaside town is within day trip distance at swish Les Sables d'Olonne, 20 kilometres north of Bretignolles or about 20 minutes' drive from the site. It's a busy and popular town, with a three-kilometre beach, busy fishing port and big harbour; arrange boat trips from this latter if you want to get out onto the Atlantic.
The Camping L'Océan team also recommends nearby La Gachère, a little fishing village with narrow roads and low houses. Cycling trails are 200 metres away; bikes can be hired on site.
