Campsite La Grande Vallée **

General information

In the southern Vendée on the Atlantic Ocean, in the vicinity of Les Sables d’Olonne (40 km) and La Rochelle (60 km), you will find the lively seaside town of La Tranche-sur-Mer. Here you can look forward to a large number of restaurants and there are shops galore. There also is a daily market. It is here that you will find camping site La Grande Vallée, located between the trees and only 700 m away from the sea, with a lovely sandy beach.

Camping site

It is a rather small, but generally busy camping site with many touring pitches and some mobile homes. The camping site is well maintained and exudes an easygoing atmosphere. The touring pitches are more or less demarcated, in rows between trees, rather spacious, with sun or shade. Most pitches are sufficiently spacious to accommodate a car and caravan and have a grassed surface. In addition to mobile homes, there are also some canvas bungalows for hire.

Camping La Grande Vallée attracts a wide range of nationalities, obviously the French, but also some English, Dutch, Belgian and German guests. Both young families and slightly older guests.

Beach

The camping site does not have its own swimming pool, but it is only a 600 m walk on a tarred road to the beach of the Atlantic Ocean (be careful when crossing the road).

Activities

There is little entertainment: 2x weekly in high season only for children up to 12 years of age. There is also a weekly jeu de boule competition for adults (with participants from surrounding camping sites).

Sanitary facilities

The sanitary facilities are new, always immaculately clean and well maintained. There are sufficient toilets and showers for the number of pitches.

Liked - The position of this site is about halfway between La Tranche-sur-Mer and la Faute-sur-Mer and very close to a lovely beach. Both towns are worth a visit with lots of places to eat and markets on two days a W eek. We had bikes and cycled everywhere because the area is perfect for cycling.
There was ways someone pleamt and helpful in reception to answer questions.The site facilities were always very clean and showers were usually hot. The water for washing up was very hot! The small cafe are was handy and there was limited free WiFi.
Just outside the site was a small supermarket

Disliked - There wasn’t really anything to dislike bout this site. It didn’t boast lots of facilities, but we dint need them.
