A beautiful beach nearby, a zoo within cycling distance and forests and dunes to explore. Sounds good, doesn't it? You can find all of this at Camping Les Fosses Rouges, situated in the Vendée. You are here in the dynamic and hospitable region between the Atlantic Ocean and the green interior.
The pitches are sufficiently large for a car with caravan or for a large motorhome. You almost always stand between trees. The rental mobile homes are located in a separate section of the camping site. In peak season there are families with children, from toddlers to teenagers. In low season you will mainly see senior camping guests. The two sanitary buildings are dated, but clean.
Swimming on the camping site or in the sea
There is a heated swimming pool. In inclement weather the retractable roof comes in handy. Do you prefer the waves and the beach of the Atlantic Ocean? Hop on the shuttle bus (in peak season) of get on your bike and look for the beautiful sandy beach of Les Sables d’Olonne, some 2 km down the road.
A blast at night...
Each night there is something going on at the camping site: karaoke, bingo, live music and dancing. And, provided you have not partied the night away, you can always join the water aerobics in the morning!
Great breakfasts and snacks!
The shop has a fairly wide range. Therefore, you do not have to leave the grounds to prepare a nice meal. Fresh rolls for a delicious French breakfast. You can get pizzas in the snack bar, or order some French fries, hamburgers, drinks or an ice cream.

Quiet campsite outside sables itself. Large pitch, basic facilities but all that's needed available. Used as a stopover site. Showers need to be pressed every 10 seconds which was a bit annoying. Cycle paths from the site and the beach is less than 1km away with great views of the Atlantic crashing on the shoreline. Swimming pool good.
Very good site with very friendly staff, excellent english spoken. Nice and close to bus stop. Site was very clean as were the toilets and showers. We stayed in September 2014. Would recommend this site.
Visited this site in late May 2013. The weather had been poor for an extended period so the site was even more quiet than the off-season norm. It is located in a quiet district of pleasant, mainly single level housing and is within walking distance of the coast. English is spoken and the staff friendly. The pitches are hedged and vary in size. We would use again.
Visited this site last year, so decided to come again this year, unfortunately we made a bad decision. We were pitched adjacent to 5 French male adolescents who on night one parted until 2 am, and on night 2 the same again, but this time the noise continued until 4 am and worst of all we found someone had used our pitch and deficated on it. Cleaning up human waste is not a nice thing. We left the site the same day. Moral to this saga, don't visit this site in the 'high season'.
