Excellent small family run site with first class facilities. Nothing to much trouble for the owners, who treat all camper as if they are their guests. People may complain about narrow access roads but, then again, if you can\'t manage your rig perhaps you shouldn\'t be driving it.

Site is on beautiful coast, slept on beach, only sea could be heard, perfect. Cycle paths to your hearts content, on beach, through forest, on prom. Family run, owners could not be more helpful and welcoming. Would definitely come here again. Weather was glorious.

Stayed on this wonderful family run site for a week en route back to the UK .
I had stayed at La Foret 20 years ago when my children were very young and I wanted to spend some time there again, it turned out to be an excellent choice. Fabulous, helpful staff, great moules/ frites fresh bread every morning and a pizza van once a week outside the site :-)
The swimming pool was immaculately kept being a perfect temperature at all times,
It was a short walk to an unspoilt beach through the pine forest, plenty of cycle rides and within close proximity to Notre Dame de Monts.

Very small and overcrowded campsite with very little space to even drive to your pitch. The pitches are sandy and compact with little privacy. The toilet facilities are small but clean, however, there were no hand dryers. It is a family run campsite and the couple at reception were so helpful and friendly (even giving us a free laundry token when we forgot to put our washing powder in!) The location was perfect, just outside the campsite there was a short forest path leading to a quiet beach. It is only a short walk to the two towns on either side of the campsite and both also have lovely beaches.

Quel plaisir que de trouver des sanitaires exemplaires en propreté ainsi que l\'état de l\'ensemble. Premier point sur lequel on se doit d\'être exigeant. Celà compense quelque petits défaut ailleurs, tel que l\'accès aux emplacements, mais avec un peu de bonne volonté et la proposition d\'aide du charmant propriétaire, ce n\'est pas un gros souci. La piscine à l\'entrée est plaisante et à une température bien agréable.Les emplacements plats ,avec soit de l\'herbe où sablonneux sont spacieux avec une arrivée d\'eau à proximité. Des haies délimitent l\'ensemble pour une très bonne intimité.
Le calme de ce terrain est appréciable (1ere 15e de juin) sauf pour quelques emplacements proches de la route départementale au fond du terrain.. Ce n\'est pas excessif, mais dérangeant la nuit. Le petit snack sur place mériterait d\'ouvrir à des heures plus adaptées aux usagés. Fermeture à 12h, puis le soir à 19h. L\'ensemble laisse quand même un excellent souvenir. Pour les promeneurs, le bois juste devant ravira autant les cyclistes que les piétons. Accès à la mer dans un chemin bordé et protégé par les arbres. Enfin, les commerces sont très proches à ND du monts. Venu par hasard, je reviendrai par plaisir.

Een prachtige, fijne kleine camping met zeer behulpzame eigenaren en familie. Vakantie vieren zoals het hoort. Rust en ruimte. De oceaan op 400 meter afstand. Te bereiken via een mooi laantje door een bos. Mooie stranden die zich lenen voor fijne wandelingen langs het water of door de duinen. En 1000 km aan fietspaden door de duinen, langs zee over de Boulevard. Leuke plaatsen in de omgeving zoals St Jean, Notre Dame, La Barre de Monts, St. Hillaire de Riez en St. Gilles Croix-de-Vie, Nantes. Dus, u snapt het, ik zou zeggen: \"niet gaan\". Want het is zo mooi en rustig!!!
