General

  • Family-friendly campsite on the Vendée coast
  • Close to fine sandy beaches
  • Pool, snack bar, bouncy castle and playground

Nine hundred metres from the sea and only three and a half kilometres from the big seaside resort of Les Sables d'Olonne is the pleasant state of affairs at Camping Le Petit Paris, on the Vendeé coast in France's Pay de la Loire. (And if you like to save all your energy for a long day of lying on the sands, a free shuttle service runs from campsite to beach in July and August.)

Le Petit Paris is a firmly family-friendly site, with a bouncy castle, a playground, evening entertainment in July and August suitable for all sizes, and a paddling pool for smalls alongside the main heated indoor pool and waterslides. A multisports field is to hand if the kids need tuckered out a bit further.

Other facilities include a games room, a shop, a launderette and a snack bar serving bites, ice cream and takeaway.

    Kim the receptionist was very helpful .
    The site was perfect for our needs , a short flat walk to the sea , a local bus to take you into town at1€ return .
    Shops a short drive away .
    Elise the barmaid spoke English when my french failed me .
    The shop was basic but had the important items you always seem to run out of.
    We didn't use the cafe on site so can't comment on it .
    The indoor pool was great with its sliding roof and the outdoor pool was like being at the beach .
    The amenities were kept clean as was the rest of the campsite .

    Disliked: 

    The absence of toilet seats .

  • Liked: 

    Staff were helpful and friendly, the children loved the swimming pool and slide (although the water was freezing) , they also loved the play park area. The pitch size was ok and we had some good entertainment. The campsite had mainly French campers staying there which wasn't a problem for us.

    Disliked: 

    Freezing cold water in the pool.

    Je me suis inscrit sur un site donnant de fausses informations sur l'implantation géographique et la situation exact de ce camping en ce qui concerne la restauration,les divertissement etc etc. En arrivant sur place rien de tout cela,mes c'est surtout l'accueil réservé qui me m'est en colère. Il s'agit en fait de la direction qui veut se faire absolument du "fric". Ils cautionnent certaines fausses informations et en plus tout est payant même la wi-fi. L'épicerie la plus proche 3 kms. Mon épouse étant handicapée ils m'ont même proposé de me rendre dans une pharmacie pour louer éventuellement une chaise roulante. Aucun respect pour le client

From the manager...

je n'ai pas très bien compris le raisonnement de ce monsieur, je crois qu'il était un peu perdu lui- même avec internet et les différents sites par lesquels il était passé.
A ma connaissance il n'y a aucun site donnant de fausses informations à notre sujet. Nous existons depuis 35 ans, je ne pense pas que cela aurait été à notre avantage de divulguer de fausses informations.
je suis d'ailleurs passé le voir pour lui expliquer tout ça,
En ce qui concerne l'épicerie, nous avons un peu de dépannage sur place, pour éviter au gens de se déplacer, mais bien sur c'est un peu plus cher qu'au super marché, il faut bien payer la crémière...
Pour être arrangeant nous avons proposé aux gens de louer un véhicule adapté pour faire des balades a pied, mais bien sur ceci était dans le but essentiel de les aider à trouver une solution,
et soyez bien sur qu'il n'y a pas que le fric qui nous intéresse, car depuis bien longtemps nous aurions revendu notre affaire, pour nous en faire du fric justement!!!
mais nous aimons trop notre métier, pour cela,
je vous remercie de votre visite et suis désolé si certains divulgues de fausses informations à notre sujet, nous allons nous attacher à les retrouver

good site 14/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom maris_w Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    I travelled with my two daughters and stayed at this campsite for one night only. We enjoyed the poolside and the waterslide which was good fun. The staff were friendly and although the reception was already closed when we arrived at 9:30-ish, we were quickly attended to by a staff member at the restaurant who gave us a map of the site. Also, although the restaurant stopped serving food at 10 (we had got our tent up just after that) they still made some chips for us. The live band was providing entertainment for the whole evening.

    Disliked: 

    It was a bit too big campsite to my liking, many holiday makers enjoyed the party atmosphere that the band provided, but i didn't like the noise. This was also the only ever campsite i stayed in that didn't provide toilet paper.

Directions


Local attractions

The blue blue sea of the Vendeé is less than a kilometre from Camping Le Petit Paris and the beach within three and a half. Several marked cycling paths and many a walking trail is around in the area too; ask the Le Petit Paris team for its recommendations and/or pick up a Picnic in the Vendée card from Les Sables d'Olonne's tourist office for suggestions on the best scenic spots at which to sup up the sun (et some vin).

Five adventure parks are around in the Vendée for those who fancy a more adrenalising experience: Indian Forest, near Moutiers le Mauxfait; the aerial assault course at Mervent Forest in the Mervent-Vouvant Forest; Feeling Forest in St.Hilaire de Riez; laser games at 201 Forest Avenue in Sion-sur-l'Ocean; paintball in the parkland at Tépacap in Mesnard la Barotiere, and ziplines and paintball at Le Grand Defi in St Julien-des-Landes.

Also family focused in the area, the Zoo des Sables d'Olonne, Sealand and the Seventh Continent aquariums are all excellent options, or for grownup pursuits you could try the golf courses, the casinos, the canalboat trips of the Venise Verte on the wetland of the Marais Poitevin...
