An individual self catering two bedroom chalet located on a 4 star mobile home site. There is individual parking areas next to our home and plenty of grassed areas for the kids to play. There are two pools on site, one heated indoor and one outdoor. The indoor pool doesn't get much use during the hot steamy summer and there are always lots of space to enjoy the usual pool side activities. There's a bar and snack bar at the side of the pool to enjoy an afternoon cooling drink, Gary and Linda are sure to give you a warm welcome, and at night there's entertainment to thrill the guests, or guests that just want enjoy the warm evenings and late day sun.

There's a well balanced mix of French and British owners and we all get along just fine so don't worry about not being fluent in French or totally devoid of it. There is always someone available to help you out and the two ladies in the office both speak both languages fluently.

The park is a very safe environment for the children. There is a play park and the kids just love cycling around the roads enjoying playing with the other children on site, language doesn't seem to matter to them either, they just get along famously.

Your welcome is guaranteed by everyone here, so come on along and sample this wonderful part of France.

Noirmoutier

The castle is one of the best preserved medieval sites in the Vendee.
On the drive there you will pass the salt marches. The salt workers explain, with demonstrations how salt is harvested and the stages in the formations for salt.
On your way there you can drive across "the Gois" which is a road only passable during low tide and one hour each side of low tide.
You are allowed to stop your car and join a huge gang hunting for shell fish, so take a bucket with you and your wellingtons. Beware of the incoming tide though.
You can leave Noirmoutier via the road bridge.

The fabulous Vendee Coastline.

There are many small towns along this stretch of amazing coastline, each with something different to offer, fresh fish and vegetables available along the route and wine tasting at the small vineyards which stretch along the roadsides. There's something for everyone to enjoy from the small children to grandparents and beyond.

Water Parks.

There are two water parks for the youngsters: one named the Atlantic Toboggan at St Hilaire De Riz, that's about 20 minutes away, and a bit further away is the better of the two O'Gliss Park which is located at La Tranche Sur Mer, which is about 55 minutes drive but well worth the effort. Don't forget the sun cream though.
