Round and about
The campsite is located between La Rochelle and Les Sables d’Olonne, just metres from the Atlantic coast and close to miles of gorgeous golden beaches.
The local area is perfect for combining a relaxing beach holiday with activities and sightseeing. La Tranche sur Mer (2.6 miles away) with its authentic atmosphere is one of the Vendée’s most popular resorts. For a historical but fun-filled day out, a visit to Puy du Fou (62 miles) is a must. Here, you can take a journey through the dramatic history of the Vendée.
La Tranche is certainly worth a visit and, if you approach it from the north you will find a large supermarket and fuel station. The town and it's approaches are usually ablaze with flowers on lamp posts and central reservations. It is a lovely town, very clean and surfing on the west coast starts about here and southwards.
