General

  • Family site five minutes' walk from Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard
  • Zoo, waterpark, go-kart circuit and adventure park within half an hour
  • Direct access to a sandy beach along a woodland footpath

Who’s up for some fresh air? Beach time? Woodland walks? Days out at the zoo, a waterpark, an aquarium or a treetop adventure park? If that’s an enthusiastic ‘oui’ to any/all of the above (likely if you’re anywhere in the vicinity of the small sorts), hotfoot it to Camping du Pied Girard, a quiet family-friendly site in Saint-Vincent-sur-Jard.

Coast and countryside are both easily accessible from this Vendée site – the nearest beach is a 15-minute amble away through the woods, and walking trails (ranging from two to six kilometres in length) run from the site through the forests, along the riverbank and by the coast.

Wriggly kids not fond of spending their hols strapped into the car will be chuffed to hear that all the previously-mentioned days out involve less than a half-hour drive. Even closer, the village centre’s only a few minutes’ walk away for a supermarket, restaurant and summertime schedule of open-air concerts and night markets.

Mature trees fill much of the site’s land, so there’s always a shaded spot for a snooze if you’re seeking to escape the sun/chill out after an eventful day. Facilities on site include a playground and a pétanque court, and there’s a tennis court a short walk away for those who fancy a bit more activity.

    Small site. Good facilities for size of site. Enjoyable 10 minute walk through the forest to a quiet beach.

    Disliked: 

    Not many flat pitches for tents. Our pitch was too shaded. No sunlight all day. Two large trees on our plot which made it difficult to pitch within the plot.

    A simple small campsite in the shade of a pine forest. Very clean showers and toilets. A boule pit and table tennis table. Walking distance to the sea. Used as a 2 night stop over on the way back from the South of France. V reasonable. A bakery van appeared on site every morning at 0800 with fresh baguettes and pain au chocolate. 👍

    Disliked: 

    Some road noise As we were situated fairly close to the road.

  • Liked: 

    Site was that good we stayed another week, its unusual being on the edge of a forest with great walks including to the beach with deer and other animals.
    Pitches on natural ground so you need ramps, motorhomes allocated mainly under trees for shade which was appreciated.
    Facilities good power showers toilets clean so no worries there, people that run it very little English spoken but we got by no problem.
    Bread delivered 0830 roughly 7 days a week with French stick, croissants and others just out oven ohlala.
    Nice beach nearby and restaurants in Clemensaue , live music once a week on seafront, 1 mile away Jard Sur Mer nice harbour , village and restaurants.
    12 mile away Les Sables D alonne great big beach good for kids very touristy mainly French .
    Biggest things we found roads very quiet compared to UK.
    Diesel cheaper than petrol @ 151 euro , diesel @137 euro.
    Free wifi for 2 weeks on pitch cant beat it.

    Disliked: 

    Price of food in Super U supermarket expensive no wonder French protesting againt Macron and EU.
    Example - Cooked Chicken average price £14 bought one at Morrisons today £3, punnet Strawberries average £5.80 etc etc

Directions


Local attractions

The Vendée’s a fab area for hols if you’re looking to keep the kids entertained/wear them out so they’ll slumber soundly. Among the top picks around here are splashing down the slides at O’Gliss waterpark (15 minutes’ drive), zooming around the track at Vendée Kart Circuit (20 minutes) and swinging through the trees at Indian Forest adventure park (20 minutes).

For a bit of history mashed up with a fun day out, try out caveman life at the Cairn stone age living museum (10 minutes) or hit Le Château des Aventuriers (15 minutes) for castle tours, dinosaur trails, swashbuckling pirates and all sorts of rides and games. Château de Talmont (15 minutes) may be more your style if you’re after more of a traditional grand house visit (although they’ll still throw in jousting demos and the like from time to time).

Creature-spotting outings nearby include insights into underwater life at the Vendée Aquarium (20 minutes) and exotic encounters with giraffes, big cats, monkeys and penguins at Zoo des Sables d’Olonne (25 minutes).
