General

  • Spectacular site 4km from Saint-Jean-de-Monts on the Vendée coast
  • Waterpark with indoor and outdoor pools, paddling pool and slides
  • Wellness centre, bar-restaurant and huge range of activities

What a place is Camping Les Places Dorées... check out that utterly spectacular waterpark for a start...

Looked? Back? Ready to book? Here be the beaucoup other places you'll want to check out on and around this lush family park. First up, it's in the lush land of the Vendée, the splendid chunk of the Pays de la Loire with 200 kilometres of Atlantic Ocean coast and heaps upon heaps of glistening sandy beach... and with marshland boat trips and the fab Puy du Fou theme park just as a brief starter.

And next? And next and next and next... Camping Les Places Dorées is in stellar Vendée setting, close to the coast at the seaside resort of Saint-Jean-de-Monts and within easy reach of other top coastal spots like Saint Gilles Croix de Vie and Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez: you could be out and about on beaches here for as long as your sandy heart could wish.

And! What a stellar amount of stuff there is to do on site too. Spend your family hours at the outdoor heated pool and paddling pool, perhaps, or zipping down the waterslides, or going undercover at the indoor pool (and for over-16s, at the sauna, hammam, whirlpools and massage jets all gratis for guests).

The site team runs a hugely varied programme of daytime and evening activities through July and August: fitness courses like aerobics, steps or muscle-training in the morning while the kids can get stuck into outdoor games, crafts, dances and songs... then in the afternoon, sports tournaments (football, tennis, pétanque, basketball and table tennis) as well as arty activities like dance are laid on for teens and adults, alongside activities for all ages like beach games, 'Olympic' competitions and treasure hunts.

By night, there's disco, karaoke, magic shows, cabarets, quizzes and live music... all at the bar-restaurant where you should have sensibly spent a couple of hours supping first.

    Absolutely loved staying here. The pitches and facilities were great, showers were hot and clean, staff were friendly and helpful. We walked to the beach every evening and then later sat and enjoyed the entertainment in the bar. Our teenage boys loved the take away bar and enjoyed pizza and chips. Swimming pool was lovely and there was plenty for the kids to do. I would highly recommend this site.

    Lots of space around plots, water tap very close. Shower and toilet facilities excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Swimming pool good but very busy

    Disliked: 

    Very little choice of drinks at the bar also very expensive, takeaway food available (great if you like pizza). Long walk to chemical toilet disposal point. Kids seem to run riot around the pool on the occasions the lifeguard was not on duty. Never saw the on site shop open or evening entertainment during our stay

    Pool lovely showers and loos and wash up super clean

    Disliked: 

    Felt as sold to English people that the kids clubs and general site could have had more English speakers and information, sometimes felt a little left out, we camped in lovely area, however the site next door to us had their walk way behind our hedge so very loud and the disco from that site kept us awake until 1am!

From the manager...

    Checking in process was very speedy and the reception staff very polite and helpful .
    we have a very large 8 man tent and the pitch was large enough for it and the car .
    The swimming pool was nice and the kids had fun there
    The toilets and shower block were very clean and modern and never crowded as there were several around the site

    Disliked: 

    No shop on site
    Having to cross main road to get to the beach
    Dog owners not cleaning up after their dog/s (although this is not the fault of the site)
    Signage and information about activities in French , some English translation would be helpful
    People smoking in garden around pool when clearly signed as no smoking

From the manager...

Dear Richard,
We thank you for your comment.
We note all your remarks and we hope to see you next year in Les Places Dorées !

    Belle espace aquatique, emplacement spacieux et propre et un air de jeux sympathique.
    Accueil chaleureux, personnel d'entretien sympathique et vigile agréable.

    Disliked: 

    Piscine sale avec trop de chlore.
    Sanitaire pas super propre et beaucoup trop de douche froide à n'importe quel heure du matin, de l'après-midi ou du soir, toilette fermer après 22h étant sur un emplacement qui se trouver dans le fond du camping pas évident de traverser tout le camping juste pour aller aux toilettes.
    Manque de douche!
    Manque d'éclairage dans le fond du camping, obligé de s'éclairer nous mêmes!
    Très peu d'animation la journée par manque d'information, animateur inexistant, personnel du snack très désagréable, animation le soir pas top, ambiance du camping plate.
    Danse du camping???? Étant rester 15 jours nous ne l'avons pas vu!!
    C'était notre 3ème année au camping, extrêmement déçu par rapport aux autres années. Nous ne retournons pas dans ce camping l'année prochaine.

Directions


Local attractions

Get on your bike: the site is next to Vendée pine forest and close to bike paths... or take your wheels to the lush islands of Noirmoutier or Yeu.

There's loads to do around here and the team recommendeds most of it: try animal parks such as La Ferme des Pommettes 10 minutes'drive away; Sealand (the Noirmoutier aquarium) within 35, and Planète Sauvage within 50. Or make for adventure parks instead, like Explora Parc (five minutes), Atlantique Toboggan (20 minutes), Youplaland (20 minutes) and Océanile (30 minutes).

Also recommended are wildlife watching around the forest, dunes and marshlands of Biotopia 10 minutes north, seeing the area's highlights in teeny style at Vendée Miniature (40 minutes), and the castle and pond at Logis de la Chabotterie, 55 minutes' drive away.
