Campsite L'Île Cariot ***

General information

In the southern part of the Vendée, towards the bordering Charente-Maritime region, you will find a former municipal camping site, now called Camping L’Ile Cariot. The camping site is only five minutes from the centre of Chaillé-les-Marais. The camping site resembles an island in the heart of the Marais Poitevin, the renowned marshland. You can go for endless walks, cycle rides or road trips.

This friendly family camping site has virtually only tourist pitches. These are nice and spacious pitches on which you can easily park your car and caravan, or even a large motorhome.

Never too young to learn

In low season you will mainly find seniors of all nationalities, whereas in high season there are many families with young children. The camping site is mostly geared towards this target group, although the activities on and around the camping site are fun for children of all ages. Enjoy fishing in one of the creeks or play a game of pétanque. You are never too young to learn; this applies here, too.

Grilled chicken

In the shop you can buy lovely regional products; fresh bread has to be ordered a day in advance. On Sundays you can buy grilled chicken for lunch. Bon appetit!

Jewellery making and archery

There is a small heated swimming pool. In peak season you can design and make your own jewellery. Fun for both children and parents. On Fridays you can take archery lessons. Tennis enthusiasts take note: at a distance of some 100 m from the camping site you will find a tennis court which you can freely use. Great 'service'!

David Wallis, on this campsite in July 2018


Travelling party: Couple

It’s a quiet site in a quiet little town in the middle of the Marais. The toilets and showers were spotless, as was the pool. The pool was heated and a good size, with plenty of loungers, though there’s no shade.

There is a children’s play area with decent climbing equipment.

Canoes can be hired to explore the Marais and there are good maps available in reception. Off-road cycle routes are available though these are 2-4 km away and you have to cycle on road to get to them. Needless to say the whole area is very flat.

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and there’s a bar and snack cabin. A small supermarket is only 10 minutes walk away.

This site is special ,the facilities and pool are checked throughout the day , with non intrusive staff.
Try some of the walks from the site, short ones into the town or longer ones round the loch.
Great place to stop for a week or two. We`ll be back to a real ,caring friendly site
Two supermarkets ,a street market (site will give you the days ) there is a lot to see and do round this campsite .

Travelling party: Seniors

A very pleasant, quiet site with lovely helpful staff who try their best to help.
Pitches are mainly large, most are shady for part of the day. Sanitary block is kept very clean. There is plenty of hot water both in the showers and in the washing up/laundry areas.
the site is situated amid the sports area on the edge of the town. There is a small supermarket and boulangerie a little walk away. Bread can be pre ordered at the site for delivery next morning. Snacks are available in the evenings.
There is one of the nicest swimming pools that we have encountered, again very clean.
