General

  • In a pine forest 4 kilometres from the beach at Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez
  • Bar, restaurant, shop, takeaway, fitness room and woodland walks
  • Spectacular outdoor pool and kids' pool with slides and edged by palms

As you'll have gathered if you've ever spent time on the Vendée coast, the seaside town of Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez is a splendid spot. Add to that the hugely fab leisurely options of Les Biches – and it's a family Vendée seaside hol sorted forthwith.

Les Biches is four kilometres from Saint-Hilaire, and 10 minutes' drive from the famed sardine fishing village of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie. The region has stacks to do for all ages, from the casino at Saint Gilles to the Atlantic Toboggan waterpark at Saint-Hilaire; for day trips, the fab theme park of Puy du Fou (oh, so much a must) is an hour and 20 minutes' drive east.

But back to what's on site... As a cursory glance at the pics above shows, Les Biches is home to a spectacular outdoor pool, edged by palm trees and with slides, a whirlpool bath and deckchairs and sun loungers alongside for fully soaking up Saint-Hilaire rays. It's supervised in July and August and has a separate paddling pool so tiddlers can splash safely too.

Among your many other leisurely picks here are sports activities by day and evening entertainment by night all arranged by the site team; puffing around the fitness room or tennis courts, or woodland walks and bike rides in the surrounding 10-hectare forest (hire a bike on site). There's a kids' club too for juniors to sprint off to while grownups repose – on lounger, with book, s'il vous plaît...?

As you'd expect, eats and drinks are fully sorted too, at the bar, restaurant, shop and takeaway – should you wish to, you could have your whole hol right on site...

Good swimming pool and playground 09/09/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Alison C. Confirmed

  • Electric forest floor pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Far and away the best thing about this campsite was the swimming pool. Even on the hottest day it didn't seem overcrowded with the four pools. The slides were great fun for the kids. The playground was also very good for children of all ages.

    Disliked: 

    The cabins are the main focus of this HUGE campsite and it seemed to me that the camping pitches were really an afterthought, in the least pleasant locations. Ours was down a dark end of a lane which got very little light and the ground was absolutely covered with enormous pine needles that got everywhere. The backdrop to our pitch was a green plastic fence. The ground was so hard it was almost impossible to hammer in pegs - we bent about half of ours beyond repair.

    The mini golf had some fun challenges but it was rather tired and in need of a repaint and a tidy - some of the holes were so full of debris it was as if a bird was making a nest in there.

    Toilet block a bit basic - I don't understand why there were numerous lockable cubicles with basins (no soap) but only 5 toilets, one toddler sized. I suppose most people must have toilets in their cabins.

    On site shop was well-stocked but expensive and staff gave you short shrift if hesitating over your choice of croissants. Reception staff were mixed friendliness - some excellent, one I found particularly patronising as she insisted on replying to me in English when I spoke to her in French (I am a professional linguist).

    Disliked: 

    On ne peux pas dire que je n’ai pas aimé, mais plutôt que j’ai était bien déçue...

    Découverte de ce camping via une offre pour le tour de France; une semaine achetée une semaine offerte. Très alléchante offre mais on comprend vite pourquoi quand on arrive au camping...
    Déjà sachez bien que le camping ne commence à prendre vie qu’au alentour du 10 Juillet.. Grosse déception !

    De plus,
    Aucun état des lieux ni inventaire de fait en arrivant.

    Propreté des mobiles homes à revoir; sur les 3 logements loués seul un en bon état et propre: Le Declik, bien évidemment il est de cette année.

    Équipement/Ustensiles presque absents.

    Manque d’éclairages dans les allées.

    Soirées répétitives, toujours la même musique que ça soit soirée dancefloor, tropicale..
    Équipe d’animation sérieusement à revoir, juste une mention spéciale pour l’animateur sportif qui lui vaut le coup c’est un garçon très accueillant et motivé par son travail, de même pour Flavien, Maurine les barmaids et Salah ect les hommes de services , qui sont au top. De même pour Greg, le gérant, qui est lui bienveillant et passionné . Cependant, le propriétaire Jacky est quant à lui quelqu’un de très désagréable, qui de plus, quand il a affaire à des jeunes l’est d’avantage!

    Les filles à la réception sont très gentilles et à l’écoute.

    La Casa Snack? Aucune organisation pour avoir travailler en restauration rapide, je peux vous dire, c’est une vraie catastrophe!!!
    Attente longue, très cher, mal servi, erreur dans les commandes.. la totale quoi.

    Les espaces aquatiques sont très satisfaisants.
    Même si les toboggans sont éteints une heure avant l’heure de fermeture de la piscine...

    Dispose d’un SPA

    La supérette est très bien.

    Le camping est situé au cœur d’une pinède, le cadre est vraiment sympa.
    Autour vraiment beaucoup d’activités à faire; au bord de la côte donc près des plages, près des Sables D’Olonne ect

    Mon bilan est donc mitigé, ce camping a du potentiel mais vraiment déçue de ses prestations.
    Rien n’est approfondi...

    Les Biches est un camping très agréable, nous avons passés un très beau week end de Pentecôte avec ma fille et ma petite fille.
    Ce camping est très bien équipé en terme de loisirs ou d'activités possibles sur le site, une très belle piscine......
    L'accueil a été parfait et le mobil home était tout neuf, propre et bien agencé.
    Cela nous a donné envie d'y retourner avec ma fille et ma petite fille.
    Surtout continuez comme ça, c'est parfait.

Directions


Local attractions

Start off your coastal adventures at Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez for the Atlantic Tobaggan waterpark and the slides, ziplines, trampolines and pony rides of the family park L'ile-aux-Jeux. Then mosey along to the coast's swish resort of Saint Gilles for its long sandy beach and plentiful watersports, enough to keep you occupied for at least a couple of days.

And after that? Saint Gilles is a fine fishing spot (charter a boat to bob out from the shore) and is the starting point for ferries to the scenic isle of Île d'Yeu – flocked to for centuries by artistic type. Another top option is the island of Noirmoutier (45 minutes' drive), walkable at low tide via the Passage du Gois.

Also recommended are rides along the old railway line via the velorail at Commequiers (15 minutes); the castle, lake and beach at Apremont (20 minutes), and a trip to Les Sables d’Olonne (45 minutes) to watch the boat races, zip along to the car museum and potter around the fishing port.
