General

  • Wooded site in a village between seaside and countryside
  • A 7-kilometre drive from the nearest Vendée beaches
  • Less than an hour's drive from the Puy du Fou theme park

In Pays de la Loire lies Le Parc de la Grève... And it's in the Vendée too: the fab French department filled with 200 kilometres of Atlantic coast, fishing rivers, many a beach, park and garden – and the utterly splendid bonkersness of Puy du Fou, possibly one of the best theme parks in all the world.

Splendidly, Le Parc de la Grève is under an hour's drive from Puy du Fou – and in an area with dozens of activities to be found close by. It's in a quiet wooded setting of over two hectares, between Saint-Gilles Croix de Vie and Brétignolles sur Mer, and about seven kilometres from the nearest Vendée beaches.

A big heated pool with a slide and paddling pool are on site, and family entertainment and activities such as a kids' club, sports tournaments and evening entertainment are run by the friendly team.

Wifi upgraded for the 2017 season is available throughout the site: access packages can be purchased from the team on arrival.

    Very friendly, felt very personnel unlike some other bigger sites.
    Felt really safe and secure for our children 9 & 11 to go and play with out having to keep watching them.
    The staff were very friendly and welcoming and always on hand to help.
    Just the right size and set in a very nice location.

Bonjour, nous vous remercions de votre avis et sommes ravis que vous ayez été satisfaits.

L'entretien des sanitaires est un point essentiel pour nous, notre équipe de ménage y porte le plus grand soin et nous passons en plus à chaque signalement. En effet, nous réfléchissons à une nouvelle campagne de sensibilisation pour un meilleur respect de la propreté des sanitaires que nous mettrons en place pour l'année prochaine.

Très cordialement

Brilliant site, good location, big pitches, lovely pool! 06/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Toby K. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Brilliant quiet sight with big pitches. The pitches are level and the electricity supply seemed high amp as had no issues here that I've had elsewhere in Europe. The heated pool was brilliant for the kids and adults alike, with varying depths and a good slide. It stayed open almost all the time and was never particularly busy. The girls also liked the park with table tennis, basketball etc. There is also a pretty lake on the site where fishing is permitted.
    The bar had various events on and served decent food at reasonable prices (even had a take away hatch!) The family that run it were very helpful and spoke English.
    It was a 10 minute drive to the coast (traffic wasn't bad at any time!) and there was a Lidl and L,Eclerc supermarket less than 10 minutes from the site. There was also a small supermarket 2 minutes walk from the site with all the essentials and even a small camping section!
    Puy du Fou was well with the visit ( about an hour away) with brilliant shows and attractions including 200 birds of prey in the air at one time, Viking adventure, Roman collessium and loads more.
    Had brilliant holiday here and will definitely be going back!

    Disliked: 

    Not really a dislike but some pitches are a little tricky to get on to (had to use caravan mover as could not have done it with the car) but we once on the pitch, it was level, large and fairly private. Bear in mind ours is a big caravan (nearly 6m)

From the manager...

Thank you very much for your feedback and very pleased to see that you have spent good time with us.
Just for your information, we have 2 sizes for pitches (confort and grand confort). Lower and upper 120m². That allows us to be in position to welcome larger van or caravan.
Hope to see you back with us.
Regards
Virginie and Stephan

    Facilities were great and the owners and staff were lovely! Close to beaches and other attractions and we also managed to book Puy du Fou tickets on the campsite. Took a little while to drive but well worth the day out.
    Would stay again in the future!

    Disliked: 

    Pitches were a little close together, however this was not a problem!

Lovely site, lots of shade, really good facilities, staff amazing! 03/09/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Annabel A. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    The site was nice and small but had a brilliant pool, children's playground, games room and bar area.
    We really enjoyed various food nights put on e.g. roasted chicken and crepes, moules frites. And the pizzas at the bar were yummy too.
    The family bathroom was perfect for our 16 month old.
    The best bit was the large pitches with big trees, we had sunshine if we wanted it and plenty of shade which we needed when the temperatures were over 30deg.
    The people on the site were really friendly, we think some had permanent pitches or owned their caravans.
    Our daughter tried the kids club but she was a little young (not yet 5), but there were lots of activities on for children.
    The best thing about this site was the wonderful couple who run it. They seemed to be working 24/7 and were so helpful recommending activities/beaches/restaurants to us. They speak fantastic English too.
    There were lots of really nice beaches a short drive away. From the sites that we looked at this one seemed very reasonable in price.

    Disliked: 

    Mixed sex toilets/showers and no toilet seats - Almost certainly a french thing we have to accept!! :-)

Directions


Local attractions

Le Parc de la Grève is minutes away from the Sables d'Olonne and Saint-Jean de Monts, in an area with activities all over such as hiking, watersports or fishing in the Lac du Jaunay reservoir or out at sea.

A golf course, canoe rental, the Grand Défi treetop adventure park for ages two and up, intriguingly named disco golf, paintball and laser tag, pony rides and the circuit of Vélodyssée are all less than ten minutes away. (Even better, discounts for the pony riding and canoe rental are available for guests.)

Other options also recommended are taking a boat to the Ile d'Yeu/Isle of Yeu from the pier of Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, and, for nature spotters and botanists, a day sniffing the specimens of the Jardin des Olfacties at Coëx's Place de l'Église.
