"Beautiful open campsite with very friendly owner. Just a little further from the coast, but beautifully situated in the Valley of the Vie river."

Travelling party: Couple


Pascal and Flo were brilliant. Unfortunately I was ill while I was there but they not only arranged a doctor\'s appointment but insisted on driving me there and to the pharmacy, refusing to accept any recompense. They had a great relationship with all guests and clearly enjoy what they do. We shall return in order to enjoy their lovely site to the full.

Travelling party: Family with children <4 years


Een schattige camping met een bijzonder rustgevend en ontspannen sfeer. De eigenaren zijn uitermate (kinder)vriendelijk, attent en behulpzaam. Het zwembad loopt vanaf 60 tot 180 cm en begint met een brede trap, dus ook geschikt voor kleine kinderen met zwembandjes. Internet werkt goed en is niet duur. De bar beperkt zich tot ijsjes en drankjes, maar dan wel ongekend goedkoop!!! Op vrijdagavond nodigen de eigenaren de gasten heel vriendelijk uit voor een glaasje (gratis) drinken op een (bedekt) terras. Op zaterdagavond wordt er wok in de buitenlucht gekookt. Op maandagavond is er een snackbar. Sanitair is goed en schoon, met een leuke kinderkamertje, wordt 2 keer per dag schoongemaakt. Kinderen van 4 nationaliteiten spelen samen op een grote speeltuin. Er zijn ruim voldoende spel- en fitnesstoestellen voor kinderen én volwassenen. Gratis en laagdrempelig! Er zijn Lidl, Hyper U, Intermarché en Netto in Aizenay.
Er was géén animatieprogramma, hoewel wij er in het hoge seizoen waren; en ook geen springkussen (wel een trampoline). Je kan geen brood op de camping bestellen, maar de bakker in het dorp is op de loopafstand. Er zijn veel (lawaaierige) Engelsen die (vooral ’s avonds) heel nadrukkelijk aanwezig zijn.

Travelling party: Family with children, 12 - 18 years


This has been our third year camping at this site. Our pitch has been spacious accommodating our rather large tent with ease. The toilet and shower facilities are second to none and are among the cleanest that we have come across anywhere - Florence and team can be seen cleaning them at least 3 times a day. This is a quiet, family site, without the arranged entertainments of the larger sites in this area. The hosts, Florence, Pascal and their three gorgeous sons are warm, welcoming, attentive, and reassuringly French and have become so much more than just camp site owners! There is a program of low key activities through out the week: wine tasting, visiting bands and culminates in the weekly petanque competition which is fiercely contested between local people, visiting French and the many other nationalities that stay at the site. I absolutely love the friendly atmosphere of the site - many guest have visited for many years and there is a real sense of community among the guests. There are a rang of supermarkets close by: Hyoer U in Aizenay and both Intermarche and Le CLerc in la Poire Sur Vie. There is a beautiful Chateau on the doorstep at Apremont, a lake to swim in and walk around and the amazing Quail Festival and Festival du Lac in August - an opportunity to join the local community in celebrating in a traditional French manner. There is plenty to see and do in the local area, would thoroughly recommend Les Sable D\'Olonne, St Giles Croix de Vie, the market at Challans, Grand Defi (especially if you have adventurous teens), Indian Forest and the beautiful Island of Normoutier. A perfect piece of unspoilt French beauty and hospitality. Will return again and again.

Camping Val de Vie is voor mensen die wat meer rust zoeken en niet op een massaal grote camping willen verblijven. Er zijn ruime plaatsen met voldoende schaduw. De camping heeft goede voorzieningen zoals een zwembad, wifi, ruim speelveld met o.a trampoline en een pizza-service. Alles is perfect schoon en goed onderhouden (sanitair wordt 2 keer per dag schoongemaakt). Eigenaren zijn ontzettend vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Kortom een echte aanrader!!!

Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years


Deze camping wordt gerund door ontzettend vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaren. Leuke, kleinschalige familiecamping, waar veel mensen elk jaar terug komen, maar nieuwkomers ook snel hun draai vinden. Af en toe worden er leuke dingen georganiseerd, zoals een jeu de boules competitie, of een wijnproeverij. \'s Avonds drinken de campinggasten soms gezellig een wijntje met elkaar. Zeer kindvriendelijk. Sanitair is erg schoon. Goed (en schoon) zwembad, leuk speeltuintje, pingpong tafels, tafelvoetbal. Bakker met heerlijk brood op loopafstand. Net als een supermarktje, met alles wat je nodig hebt. De Hyper U (grote supermarkt) is 5 km, in de plaats Aizenay. Centraal gelegen t.o.v. strand en attracties, maar ver genoeg van het grote toerisme.
