General

  • Family-focused site 500 metres from the ocean
  • Recreational and sporting activities organised all year round
  • Balneotherapy facilities, sauna, spa, solarium and tanning studio

What an unwinding time will be had by all at fab and family-friendly Camping Le Bel Air, a short drive from the fab Vendée seaside town of Les Sables d'Olonne – and a 500-metre amble from a lush Atlantic coast beach.

There's enough to do here to keep all tastes occupied for aeons, including 'the cleanest pool facilities I've seen anywhere' as lauded by one chuffed former guest: this spectacular waterpark is brimming with waterslides, waterfalls, slides, Jacuzzis and rapids around its sizeable outdoor pool and padding pool setting.

If you're a sensible sort, you'll probably spend most of your site time in the pool, perhaps including the occasional clamber out to soak up some sun from the adjacent loungers, but some/much time should be carved out for pampering too, at the Bel Air balneotherapy facilities, sauna or spa. Need to top up the tan? A studio to do just that is on site too.

But all this really is just for starters on the leisure menu here... The friendly team organises recreational and sporting activities all year round, and runs entertainment all day and into the evening: pick from the kids’ club, teen club, sports tournaments, pétanque tournaments, archery, soirées and themed nights, music and karaoke.

And there's yet more. Also on site for your leisurely pursuits are a games room and a playground, a miniature golf course, a multisports court, a tennis court and a whole heap more… go forth and see it all for yourself on a lengthy sunny stay.

Food of all sorts is, of course, all covered, at the snack bar and pizzeria, both with takeaways available, and the well-stocked shop selling fresh bread, pastries, croissants and baguettes alongside general groceries and newspapers.

And if you do get time to surf, wifi access is available across the site.

    Money spent on the bar, play and swimming area.

    Disliked: 

    The clientele - French holiday site (think club 18-30s). Bouncers on the entrance to the site. Pitches too small and right next to the entertainment complex. Music on till 1am every night. Gangs of youths running around screaming and shouting. Horrendous experience.

Holiday from hell 13/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jo C. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    The most dreadful campsite we have ever used. The pitch was too small and only feet away from the noisy entertainment complex. The loud entertainment carried on till 1 a.m every night with revellers running around till past 2 a.m and banging on caravan windows, yelling and shouting. Fights were a regular occurrence. We were intimidated on several occasions by gangs of youths. We had no sleep during our stay. The reception staff were cold and unhelpful. The worst pitches were given to the English. I took my 5 yr old grandson to the toilets where a gang of youths were fighting. He was frighteneed and in tears. This is not what a holiday should be about. I will be posting my reviews on social media and Trip Advisor as I want to warn other holidaymakers. This is a site for 18/20 mentality not families with young children or mature people. A couple of swimming pools doesn't make up for lack of sleep and a calm atmosphere. Our holiday was ruined. There was no entertainment for the English families.

Local attractions

If you ever do get off site, the sands and clear waters of the nearest Chateau-D'Olonne beach are a 500-metre amble away, and the seaside resort of Les Sables d'Olonne is within a short drive.

Scenic countryside, lush forests and protected sand dunes are all around too, for forest hikes or potters around Chateau d'Olonne's handsome coastal path. Several waymarked footpaths and bike trails start from near the site.

At Les Sables d'Olonne, start off with a wander along some of its three-kilometre length of beach, or promenade along to the town's harbour to the fishing ports or to arrange boat trips out into the Atlantic. The town's also home to the Sealand Aquarium of Noirmoutier; for more fishy facts, drive 10 minutes or so along the coast to famed aquarium The Seventh Continent at Talmont-Saint-Hilaire.

Casinos, golf courses and watersports of all sorts are also available in the area – or there's that splendid waterpark back at base...
