General information
Flower Campings
Guide price €28.70

This amiable, very child-friendly camping site with plenty of greenery and a rural, slightly casual appearance, is located close to the centre of the village of Saint-Hilaire-la-Forêt. The camping site has a gorgeous and extensive swimming pool which guests of all ages are guaranteed to enjoy. Cool off in the different pools, swish down the chutes or enjoy the play equipment. In high season there is a bus service from the camping site to the beach of Les Sables-d’Olonne.

Rural camping site

The reception, constructed of wood, enhances the rural character of the camping site, almost like a farm. With a camping site name like this (‘métairie’ = smallholding) this comes as no surprise. There is also a lovely petting zoo which gives the camping site its rural character.

Camping amidst green

Camping La Grand’ Métairie is situated on a beautifully finished and well maintained terrain with room for 42 touring pitches. You are camping here close to the village, but due to the abundance of greenery from the trees, plants and hedges it feels like you are staying in the countryside. The pitches are level, measure between 80 to 100 m2 and are separated from each other by hedges and shrubs. Most pitches are sufficiently spacious for a car and caravan or a motorhome.

They also offer ample shade

In addition, there are some 125 rental accommodation units (caravans, mobile homes and furnished tents) on a separate site.

Ride on the tractor

Near the petting zoo is a vegetable garden at children's height with nameplates of the different vegetables. The kids club organises regular gardening workshops. Each evening children can join a 'children's parade' in the cart behind the old tractor of owner Denis. What fun!

Travelling party: Seniors

La Grand Metairie near Talmont St Hilaire is a large campsite which accept Acsi cards. Our greeting was pleasant and a good level of English understood which is always helpful to us :-). This site is mainly static vans with 39 touring pitches which offer shade but not too much! We visited at the start of September 2015, initially for a week but ended staying 17 days!

To enter you need to go through a security gate which works on a fob, in the evening no vehicles allowed to move around on site between 11pm and 6am but there is limited parking in front of reception if you are late.

The two toilets blocks and showers are in central locations close to the touring pitches (and one near the restaurant), there separate facilities for male and female, between six and eight in the block which was open and there was not a problem. Toilet paper and seats or hand soap was not provided but in the female toilets there were seats.

There are two main pools with water slides (indoor is heated), a paddling/ shallowpool, water fall with a 'Whirl pool', jacuzzi and steam room.

Electricity is reported at 10 amps and we had no problems.

Pitches varied in size and required a pin plug (which was offered as a loan) you can not connect to the plug yourself, it is done for you.... To reduce folk using it without paying?

Water is not on all pitches, but can be obtained from the central toilet block area, although my pitch had water and a makeshift drainage point.... There was a TV point but it was not 'terminated' correctly. We have a small (normal) sky dish which gave us an excellent UK Freesat signal, awesome! (We checked our Aldi sat set up and this work well too).

For kids, there is a petting farm, more a pen really with goats, rabbits, chickens and goose etc. there is table tennis, tennis, boles etc. and there appears to be activities provided daily, according to the notice board.

There is a variety of shops (about 6 miles) nearby, Lidl and Super U.

A church is nearby and sounds to call parishioners and the hour, we did not hear it before 8am.

There are some really nice places to visit in this area and we plan to return (which is high praise as we rarely return).

Travelling party: Family with children <4 years

This is an excellent holiday park. The access to our pitch was narrow and difficult to manovure the caravan, one parked up the pitch was large and level. The facilities are spotless and well maintained. The restaurant is excellent. Our 4yr old loved the pool and playground. We will definetly be returning. would recommend at least 7 nights as the location is also excellent.
