  • Family-friendly site 10 minutes' drive from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie
  • Indoor and outdoor heated pools and paddling pool
  • Summer entertainment, multisports venue, Jacuzzi and snack bar

Hankering after a hol with the kids in tow? Enter Domaine de la Michelière: this kid-friendly site in the Vendée has enough to do to keep all ages contentedly occupied for aeons. It's a 10-minute drive too from the sandy shores of seaside town St Gilles Croix de Vie, whose Grand Plage beach stretches for three kilometres.

But back to what's on site, as you'll likely spend a fair amount of time at base too. The pool area at Domaine de la Michelière is properly mighty, covering a sizeable 2,500 square metres to include an outdoor pool as well as an indoor one for covered dips (both are heated to 27°Celsius from Easter to early autumn). There's also a paddling pool for the nippers along with a Jacuzzi for mums and dads.

Elsewhere, Domaine de la Michelière has a snack bar for refuelling (just the ticket after a particularly challenging game of pétanque...) or you can pick up eats at the supermarket a five-minute drive away.

A TV room is also on site... perhaps your grownup place for a breather while the kids are mingling with other mini humans at the weekday kids' club...? There’s entertainment for everyone in high season as well, with nightly shows including live music.

  • Liked: 

    Toilet and shower facilities were very clean, Swimming pools were also very clean and at times we we were the only people in the pool. They also have some excellent slides which both the adults and the kids loved.
    Location of the campsite was excellent, it was a short bike ride to the local shopping complex and although the start of the ride was on the road, the road was not busy and the cycle paths once you get on them were fantastic. We also rode to the town of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie along the river cycle path which was an easy and beautiful ride.
    Local activities were brilliant, river canoes, indoor surfing and cycle paths within a very short distance and with a short drive there are plenty of other things to do.

    Overall we have really enjoyed our stay at this campsite and would recommend it. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Many of them speak very little English so brush up on your French. We are not French speakers at all, but enjoyed trying to explain ourselves.


    Make sure you take toilet roll to the toilets they do not supply any. In one set of toilets the toilets seats were missing. It is only a short walk to others.
    Quite strict rules in the pools. No inflatables or balls. Didn't stop us having fun.
    Very limited tent pitches, this site only has 6. Good size pitches though.

Local attractions

Domaine de la Michelière is surrounded by leafy countryside on the outskirts of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie and its pretty pedestrianised streets. Should you want to stock up on Gallic delicacies like camembert and freshly baked baguettes, it's a 10-minute drive from the site to the traditional markets that crop up in town.

And for leisure? Cyclists will have boundless trails to explore – there are more than 350 kilometres worth in the Vendée – while watersports fans can partake in a spot of sailing from Port la Vie back in St-Gilles or book surf lessons on the beaches.

A 10-minute drive inland will bring you to a canoe centre for paddles around wetlands, and there’s an adventure park made up of treetop trails 15 minutes away. Or, for a slice of dreamy island life, Noirmoutier's gorgeous beaches and walking trails are less than an hour's drive north up the coast.
