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.

Friendly staff with good English spoken. Good atmosphere on site but disco opposite was very noisy and lasted well into the early hours. Excellent shop next door and fifteen-minute walk to lovely beach.

We had an excellent stay on this family run site. The owners Sam & Virginie are so friendly & helpful. It\'s about 4 miles to cycle into La Tranche. Lovely beach within walking distance of the site. Excellent shop next door very well stocked makes his own delicious Grande Vallée pâte ! We only camp in low season but will definitely return one day to see how the owners have progressed as they are always trying to improve their facilities !

We stayed at this site for 4 nights at the end of June. Everything very clean and lovely children\\\'s play equipment although not required by us. Good free Wi-fi at the bar. Several plots backing onto fields with nice views. Would certainly stay at this site again if we go back to the area.

We stayed at this site for 4 nights ( an unscheduled stop ) The site is quite small and access somewhat tight,but apart from that I can not fault it. The staff were brilliant,especially the owner ( I presume he is ) nothing was too much trouble and he went to great lengths to explain everything we needed to know. The toilets and showers were always clean and the bar was open all day!! Prices were very reasonable. There is a shop next door for bread etc,and the large sandy beach is only 5 minutes by car ( there is a car park next to the beach ) La Tranche sur Mer is only a 10 minute drive, but is also easily accesible by bike. Would definitely stay at this site again.

We stayed at this campsite in our motorhome for 4 nights. The place was lovely and the owners very nice. It is a mellow site that is easy to get to and you are left to enjoy yourself. The bar area is nice and offers free wifi. The site is close to the beach and the village has everything required from fresh fish stall to bread and is close to a large supermarket. There are many bike paths allowing for a number of rides to suit all abilities. Again the owners make it such a nice place to stay and we will certainly return!

Small friendly campsite with marked out flat grassy pitches...some with trees for shade. Wifi free on terrace. Just a short walk to sea and small supermarkets. Large Super U a short drive away in La Tranche.

Warm welcom from the owners, who spoke better English than we did French. Everything on site worked as we would have liked. If we are this way again we will use the site.
