General

  • In the countryside 10 minutes from beaches
  • Sunny or shaded pitches surrounded by trees and flowers
  • Pools, paddling pool, solarium, fishing, playground and tennis

Just very Vendée fab... the greenly gorgeous, perfectly placed and warmly friendly Saint-Julien-des-Landes site of La Bretonnière is an absolute smasher.

Deep in peaceful countryside but only 10 minutes from the beach, La Bretonnière is a fably set out site for family and friendly hols, with a range of activity and leisure options to keep all ages busy from dawn to le dusk (par exemple, just look at that waterpark). It's only a few minutes' drive from the lush waters of Lac du Jaunay and access to the region's 800+ kilometres of bicycle routes and hiking trails, a couple of kilometres from Saint-Julien-des-Landes, and about 35 minutes' drive from the swish seaside resort of Les Sables-d'Olonne.

But back to that waterpark. There are three fine pools on site for the family to splash about in, including an outdoor pool, a semi-covered one, and a good-sized paddling pool with games, toys and jets. As you'd contentedly expect from such a well-appointed site, there's plenty of sunbathing space at the poolside solarium too, with loungers provided for your sunny lounging.

Also on site are a fishing pond, a games room, a playground and a tennis court, as well as evening entertainment, daily activities and a kids' club in summer. There's a handsome big bar with terrace too, takeaway, and a grocery shop where fresh bread, pizza and chips are all served in July and August. Fresh bread is available to order outside the summer months.

    Everything the campsite was brilliant with fantastic facilities and friendly staff. The area is beautiful with lots of lovely walks and coastal areas. The campsite has thought of everything from fridge and bbqs to rent to the pitch layouts to give each pitch some shade with hedges and trees. We will return for a visit :)

    A fabulous camp site with a swimming pool, outside gym, pool table, toilets and showers were very clean and both Regis and Aline were very helpful and make us feel very welcome, we would recommend this site to all of our family and friends.

    Disliked: 

    There was nothing to dislike about the visit, but we were not very impressed that Pitch-Up sent us the details of where to find the camp with the incorrect post code, you put on the details that it was located in 88510 when it should have been 85150, we nearly went to the north east of France, not very professional !

Directions


From Nantes:

Take the A87 in the direction of Roche sur Yon.

Follow the signs for Sables d'Olonne and take the exit signposted Brétignolles-sur-Mer.

Continue up to Mothe Achard, at the roundabout take the D12 signposted Brétignolles sur Mer and continue for approximately 7km.

Drive through Saint-Julien-des-Landes and continue for another 2km.

Take the first right and continue up to our entrance.

Local attractions

July and August sees many traditional festivals in the nearby towns and villages; the Bretonnière team can point you in the right direction if you want to check these out.

Anglers, boaters and fans of peaceful hikes should make for peaceful Lac du Jaunay, in a wooded valley three kilometres away. (If you're in the region over the mid-August bank holiday, a definite must-do is the Lac du Jaunay firework display: not at all peaceful but simply splendid.) The lake is in a wildlife and birdwatching haven: take the 12-kilometre walk starting from La Chapelle-Hermier to see what species you can spy.

Within easy day trip distance – and much recommended – are the dunes and sands of Bretignolles-sur-Mer (15 minutes' drive), the fishing town and harbour of Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, and the popular resort of Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez, both within 25 minutes.
