- Family-friendly site 10 minutes' walk from a sheltered sandy beach
- Free shuttle bus to the attractions of La Tranche-sur-mer in summer
- Bar/snack bar with terrace overlooking the playground
Sand, sea swims and socialising – life’s simpler pleasures don’t get much grander than those at family-friendly Camping La Grande Vallée. Pack up all your fave beach kit if you’re heading over here, as it’s likely you’ll be making several trips down to the sheltered sandy stretch that’s a mere 10-minute amble from the site.
Beach buffs of many flavours should find something to appeal down here: a watersports centre rents out canoes, pedaloes and paddleboards for those who like to be up and about and there’s heaps of soft sand for dedicated do-nothings to stretch out on. If you’d like to expand your horizons to something a bit livelier, hop on the free fun bus that runs guests to the resort of La Tranche-sur-Mer in the summer for all manner of seaside fun including boat trips, fairground rides, windsurfing and lots of shops and cafés.
Life on site moves at a gentle pace – it’s a peaceful place aimed at relaxing stays for la famille, but with enough facilities to keep things running smoothly. Kids’ activities are organised on site a couple of times a week in summer, and they can convene with chums at the playground. Meanwhile, supervising eyes can keep watch from the comfort of the bar’s handily located terrace while sipping a coffee or something a tad stronger (at the appropriate hour, of course).
Spontaneous playtime hunger pangs can be swiftly sorted with something from the snack bar menu, and there’s a bakery and small supermarket to provide all the necessaries for packing picnics or organising a suppertime sausage sizzle.
Anticipating perhaps that the small ones have a tendency to get themselves rather mucky at times, the site has been furnished with a plethora of clean-up amenities, including a launderette with washing machines and tumble dryers along with a large toilet and shower block that's been given the thumbs-up by previous guests for its sparkling cleanliness.

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.

It’s likely that much of your time here will revolve around time spent on the fab sandy beach, but it’s worth getting out and about to see a little further afield. Start with heading into La Tranche-sur-Mer (10 minutes in the car/on the free shuttle bus) for surfing lessons, paddleboarding trips and pony riding excursions for the nippers. A little north of the resort (15 minutes’ drive from the site) is a go-karting circuit with kit suitable for all ages from three upwards.
20 minutes or so in the car takes you up to two kid-friendly amusement parks. Climb high into the trees at the Indian Forest adventure park, or stay down on terra firma for other fun stuff including archery, paintballing and zorbing. Or you can cool off (again and again) by splashing down into the waters of O’Gliss Park from one of the many colourful waterslides (or watch the aquatic amusement from a distance from a coveted beach spot under a palm tree).
Cycling is a popular way to get around here – explore more distant stretches of beach or head out onto the paths through the surrounding fields and forests. There’s easy access to more than 20 kilometres of cycle path from the site, plus as far as you’d like to go along the Vélodyssée long-distance path that runs along the whole of the Atlantic coast. If you’ve not brought your own bikes, there’s a handy hire place just a couple of minutes’ walk from the site.
