It'll be easy to keep your offspring amused from Camping du Vieux Château on the Loire-Atlantique coast… for not only is this friendly and well-equipped site a 10-minute walk from the beaches, shops and town centre of Saint-Michel-Chef-Chef, it's only five kilometres from the excellent antics, tree climbing and hanging bikes of Pornic Adventure.
The beaches and chunk of coast around here lend themselves with no probs to family activity days, whether you want to cycle the coastal path, gallop along the sands by horseback or get into the water for windsurfing or sea kayaking. The Sentier des Daims animal park, Défi Nature and Planète Sauvage are all within 35 kilometres of the site's setting between Pornic and Saint-Brévin-Les-Pins; Nantes is 50 kilometres away.
Camping du Vieux Château is a family-run site, with plenty of shaded areas and well-maintained paths giving easy access throughout. It sells fresh local produce including cheese and fruit throughout the season, runs a snack bar in summer for quick bites, and has a barbecue area and a fresh bread service.
Leisurely options include a heated pool and a paddling pool, a roomy playground, a pétanque court and table football in the spacious snack bar. Evening entertainment is arranged in high season.
