On the French Atlantic coast, less than one hour from Nantes, is the de L’Hermitage du Dunes campsite located right by the sea. From the bar, the restaurant, and some of the camping pitches you have a breath-taking view over the ocean, which has very strong tides here. Local tip: gather your own seafood by ‘foot fishing’ on the beach.
View of the sea
When you find your pitch, you will immediately notice how nice and quiet the atmosphere on the campsite is. The pitches are spacious, and some have views of the sea. The campsite also rents out a number of mobile homes. In the summer, you will find many French families with children. In the low season, it is a popular place for rest seekers from all over the world. The plumbing was refurbished in 2019.
Swimming and foot fishing
Do you like swimming? Thanks to the heated and covered pool, you can enjoy the water starting in April. The little ones can splash and play in the paddling pool. And, of course, you can enjoy the beach and the sea. The beach is only 50 metres from the campsite. You can walk there through the gate of the campsite.
Depending on whether it is low or high tide, the beach varies considerably in size. You can sunbathe and swim or walk and bike. Foot fishing is also a popular activity here. That means you can collect your own shells and seafood while you’re hiking and then prepare a fresh meal at the campsite! Because of the many sharp shells, water shoes are recommended for the little ones.
