When you’re planning your hols, do you gravitate more towards water or land? It doesn’t matter what you answered – at the appropriately named Camping Le Jardin du Marais (that’s French for ‘the marsh garden’), a family-friendly site less than five minutes’ drive from the town of Le Perrier in the Vendée department of Pays de la Loire, there’s plenty of both. There are plenty of walking and biking trails starting in nearby Le Perrier, and cyclists are particularly well served by Le Jardin’s closeness to the Sentiers Cyclables de la Vendée routes. The site is also part of the Accueil Vélo network, so if you haven’t been able to bring your own ride, you can rent a bike on site. As well as being a mere 10 minutes from the beach of Saint-Jean-de-Monts (for watersports and swimming), Le Jardin is in the marshes of the Vendée, and the famed Marais Poitevin has loads of stunning landscapes to wander through. Fancy a break from adventuring? Chill out back on site with a relaxing day’s fishing (or duck feeding) at the pond, an afternoon next to the pools and on the waterslides, a game of volleyball or pétanque, or a few hours in the gym. When you’re ready to eat, grab some quick and easy essentials at the on-site grocery, head to the snack bar for some grub and wash it down at the on-site bar, or venture off site to taste the local delicacies at one of the restaurants within 15 minutes.

Local attractions

Camping Le Jardin du Marais is on a stretch of coastline between the islands of Noirmoutier and Yeu. Catch the ferry to l’Île d’Yeu from Saint Gilles Croix de Vie or Fromentine and explore its lighthouses, châteaux, forts and beaches, or make your way to Noirmoutier for its château, l’Île aux Papillons and museums. You can even stroll to the latter across the Passages du Gois – just keep a careful eye out for high tide. Le Jardin isn’t the only garden in the Vendée: Le Potager Extraordinaire botanical gardens, Vent Garden, Jardin des Olfacties and Biotopia are all within 40 minutes of the site, and gardens at the spectacular Logis de la Chabotterie and Château d’Apremont are well worth a trip. There’s plenty nearby to keep kids entertained if they’re beginning to chafe at the bit, starting with horse riding on the beach (head to Nelly’s Ranch, 10 minutes away). Le Jardin is close to absolute oodles of animal parks, theme parks, waterparks and aquariums, but if you've only got time for a few you should hit up Zoo des Sables d’Olonne, O’Gliss Park, Sealand (on Noirmoutier) and, a little further afield, Puy de Fou.
