I am a retired teacher, living in Oxfordshire with my husband, a retired college lecturer and plumber. We have 2 grown up children. When they were younger we spent many happy holidays camping in France, especially enjoying the gorgeous beaches in the Vendée. We decide to buy two mobile homes adjacent to one another at Les Amiaux, which is a very family friendly site. We spend as much time as we can on the site taking many holidays at the homes with our friends and family members.
|Year property purchased||2006|
|Why this location?||The Vendée is easily accessed from the ferry ports Saint Malo ( approx.3 hours), Caen ( approx.4 hours) and Cherbourg ( approx. 5 hours). There are excellent road networks and it is only an hours drive from Nantes airport. Once at the site you are assured of a great holiday close to fantastic beaches as well as interesting towns and villages offering markets and family activities There are many supermarkets and restaurants within easy access. The site is a family friendly site with amenities to suit all age groups.
The area is conducive to walking and cycling and there are many interesting places to visit only a short drive away. Saint Jean de Monts is a wonderful resort with a fantastic beach and promenade and free parking. There is a weekly market and a regular night market. Also a vast choice of restaurants.
|Unique benefits of property||Our mobile homes are positioned at the top of a small cul de sac but within easy access of all the amenities which the site has to offer. The good sized plots are hedged to give privacy and there is parking for one car at each mobile home. There is a grassed area for sun loungers and for young children to play, as well as a paved area with a table and seating for 6 as well as a barbecue. A gazebo is available if needed to offer shade. As we use the home for our own family holidays we maintain it in good condition. Each home is comfortable and well equipped with many "added extras" included. A full inventory is available on request.
As the two homes that we own are adjacent to one another it gives the opportunity for two families to be accommodated close to one another. Also as our mobile homes are the only permanent homes in the cul de sac there is a cosmopolitan feel during the high season, with visitors from many countries moving onto the other plots.
Saint Jean de Monts and Notre Dame de Monts are the nearest towns offering beautiful beaches, bustling weekly markets, cycling and walking routes and a wide range of restaurants. The Bistro on the beach at Notre Dame de Monts is well worth a visit. There is a sailing centre, Thalassotherapy pool and a number of horse riding centres also sited in Saint Jean de Monts.
Ille de Noirmoutier is approximately 20 kms away. It can be reached by a road bridge or a more exciting route is via La Gois. or causeway at low tide when you can join the locals and other visitors cockle picking.( tide times are available at reception or in the tourist information office in Saint Jean de Monts.) There is also an aquarium on the island and lots of safe cycle routes as well as a lovely historic town to wander around.
Pornic is well worth a visit for lovely walks and interesting buildings including a chateau.
Les Sable d'Olonne offers a beach, interesting harbour and lovely eateries as well as a super zoo.
In August Challans holds historic markets with the locals dressing in historical costume. ( details from reception).
Best equipped caravan we've ever hired in over 15 visits to France. Really pleased with gas BBQ - so much easier than charcoal - & it was wonderful to have an oven & a microwave (usually its one or the other). The fan was a Godsend, as was the gazebo, as we had 2 weeks of sunshine & temperatures into 30s. Also we liked that it catered for families eg it had a large saucepan c.f. the norm which is medium & small, it had some plastic cups etc as well as more than adequate crockery & utensils & the little things which make life easier - foil, bag clips, knife sharpener, toilet rolls, soap, washing up liquid, sponge & cleaning materials. There were TV, DVD, CD players, DVDs, games & books & even bicycles!
The site seemed well run & had a good mix of British, French, Dutch, German & Irish tourists (& there were lots of well behaved dogs). The on-site facilities were well used - but the bar was pricey - over 5 euros a pint - fortunately there are several supermarkets in the area where alcohol can be bought at relatively low (ie normal French) prices.
The owner provided comprehensive information & was extremely pleasant to deal with. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this caravan to anyone subject to the proviso that they took plenty of anti mosquito materials as there are no fly screens on the windows & its not far from standing water - the owner does however provide a plug in 'insectecutor'
