Last summer we had a fantastic road trip through France into Spain, largely thanks to this amazing forum and the tips that people shared. Thank you to everyone who did!
We now have the bug and we’re planning our next trip. We plan to move less and stay on more campsites this time as this was the part the children loved most.
Does anyone have recommendations for a campsite on the west coast of France please? Ideally we’d love a pool (slides a bonus), access to the beach and a town/restaurants a walk or cycle away. I’ve found a few options on search for sites already but wondering if I’ve missed any gems! Thank you

My gem is Camping Le Clair Matin, Noirmoutier. Ticks all your boxes except swimming pool. It’s Municipal, so no frills. Access Noirmoutier via Bridge, but much more fun is the tidal road, if you can make the tide times work for you.
There’s a Huttopia site next door which is more family oriented with more facilities, including direct access to beach. Looks like a very nice site, but not stayed there.

Another option is Logis Du Briel, a family centrix site with a great pool, you would need bikes to get to the beach but huge pitches we went year after year when our kids were small, each year our daughter would cry when we left, they loved it so much. Lots of English as its a CMCC recommended site but means kids can make friends easily. We had great family holidays here, but were in our wobble box and had the car. https://www.logis-du-breuil.com/en/. Local beaches are great -- huge amount of sand and the local town of St Palais sur Mer is lovely.

Site on Ile d'Oleron, direct access to beach, child friendly, dog friendly and in high season a free bus service around the island. Further north, all along the coast around Saint Jean de Monts are many sites of varying sizes and budgets, many with large pool complexes (Les Amiaux as an example), not all with direct access to beaches but a short walk/cycle through the dunes. Also the west coast Vendee cycle routes all pass by the various sites.

If you fancy ILE de Re then Flower camping Bel Air in La Flotte en Re is good.
Pool, 800 mts to centre with loads of bars/ restaurant/ shops & market & supermarket at back of site.Good walks & loads of safe cycling. Easy access to other parts of the island & bus to La Rochelle which is a good day out. July & August may be better to book.
