    We have booked the ferry and are intending to stop off in the Vendee for two or three nights and then head for the vendee.

    Any suggestions on good sites. The vendee would need to be walking distance to the sea and preferably water and electric connection.

    I have the Alan Rogers book but would like to narrow the search down a little. We ar going on 15/08/09 for two weeks.

    We did the Vendee last year, and intend going there again this year.Last year we stayed in Jard sur Mare, the site was a tad expensive ,can't remember the name of it but it was one of the Chadotel group ones, very busy but plenty to do for the kids........ supermarket 10 mins away. Then we tootled down to the Ille de Oleron plenty of sites and Aires there but we never booked anywhere just cuffed it and managed to get in at sites.

    Sorry Locky, we went in August last year,and it was very very busy, like I said we took pot luck, and it worked for us just turning up,:Wink: but that's the only luck we've ever had, never won the lotto though:Rofl1:
    August in France is holiday time so expect the unexpected

    Here's a nice one...

    Hi,

    We've visited Jard sur Mer many times.

    Stayed at a small site "La Mouette Cendree" (think that's the right spelling) which had pool and slide but it's not a manic site... especially if you are going after 15th August.

    It's an easy 5 minutes walk into town and harbour, 5 minutes walk to local SuperU which was excellent. But it is a 5/10 minute drive to superb beaches .. did you want to be closer?

    Site has changed owners but new owners are making improvements and still retains its pleasant atmosphere. I think it's (still) in the Caravan Club book.

    Some friends go back every year ... may be there when you are even! Look for Nick and Liz from Wales, probably in their corner plot with Ron and Margaret (parents) next door! Nice folk!:thumb:

    Have a great time, it's a lovely area.

    john

    I'm jealous! :cry:

    Locky....it has come to me, the site we were on in Jard sur Mare was, Camping Chadotel L'ocean D'or, if you google it up, it'll give you the price and details but as I say it was a very very busy site, but a lot for the rug rats to do!!
    If I remember rightly there were a few sites in Jard sur Mare, maybe 4 or 5 sites. plus an Aires down the road near the beach.
    Hope it helps mate......regards...............Ray......(Mondo)

    We have just come back from the St Jean de Mont in the vendee we stayed at camping La Yole plenty for the kids to do but will be expensive in the high season. There is and aires in St Jean which I am told has water and hook ups for 5 euros a night it is close to the golf course.

    St Jean De Monts

    As we aren't people to go back to the same place twice ever, it really says something about this site that we've been to 3 times! It's called Le Clarys Plage in the St Jean de Monts, supermatket right next door, a few restaurants in walking distance and the beach is over the road! Perfect location and there is an easy road into St Jean itself (about 8 mins drive) Gorgeous pool area, fab shower blocks, only thing is there is a bar and 'entertainment' in high season which is a bit tacky, depends what you like I suppose.

    We've always been in May/June, I hear St Jean is very busy in August.

    Enjoy yourselves when you go. The parking on St Jean de Monts seafront is very MH friendly and I am sure you'll find a great campsite.

    Nice free 'aire' almost in the centre of Jean de Mont. Cruise around and you'll see all the other vans parked there. No charge but no water, nothing, safe. We overnighted there two years ago. Near shops, pubs, seafront, restaurants. Enjoy.
