Saint-Jean-de-Monts is a beach resort in de Vendée, located in the Pays de la Loire, on the Atlantic Coast. Saint-Jean-de-Monts was already discovered as a beach resort in 1867 and its popularity has only increased since then. Camping Le Bois Joly is not directly located at the coast, but is separated from it by a forest. However, it is only a 1300 m walk to the wide beach and the attractive promenade. The centre of the town is also no further than a ten minute walk.
The camping site is clearly geared towards families with children, but teenagers also enjoy themselves in the outdoor pools with slides. The regular outdoor pool has a slide. In addition, there is a white water ride with a very high and slightly longer slide. The more senior guests mostly make use of the indoor swimming pool. The swimming pools are located at the front of the camping site with adjacent the restaurant (bar) and a terrace. Beach lovers get their money's worth as well, as it is only a 10 minute walk before you feel the sand between your toes. The area is excellent for long cycling trips.
Entertainment for all
The camping site has an extensive entertainment programme for small children and teenagers. In peak season they even have an entertainment programme for adults.
There is no shop on the camping site, but this hardly matters; the village is within walking distance. The camping site restaurant serves pizzas, hamburgers and other small fare. Take-away meals are also available. The small town offers ample alternatives with a wide choice of restaurants.

An excellent campsite and one of our most enjoyable experiences. We were allocated a pitch but were told if we preferred a different one just to let them know. We found one with some shade and also access to the satellite for TV. There were water points on all the pitches as well as electricity. This was late June so the Bar, restaurant and take-away were open only on Fridays and Saturdays. Free WiFi was available in the bar and was acceptably fast. Paid WiFi was available on all pitches for a fee. The high point of the Camp site was the excellent swimming pool complex, with indoor and outdoor pools with a couple of chutes. The best part however, was the long \"Lazy River\" with a strong current running all the way round making swimming a dream. There was also a \"Space Hole\" chute for extra excitement.
The sea front of St Jean de Monts extends for about two miles including St Hilaire de Reiz with hotels, restaurants and apartment buildings all the way along, as well as a two-lane cycle path. In high season I expect it would be very busy indeed, but in late June it was pleasant. The small town just a mile from our camp was delightful with an indoor and outdoor market an a good selection of shops and eating places. Super U and Intermarche were a further half mile away.
Beautiful campsite just on the edge of town so a 10 minute walk into town and there are lots of bars and restaurants. It is about a 20 minute walk to the beach but it is well worth it with miles of golden sand.There are three very large supermarkets all about a 20 minute walk away. If you like cycling the area is criss crossed with cycle paths running the whole length of the vendee. The site itself is very well maintained and has a superb pool area,every pitch has its own water tap and electric post. The staff all speak good English and are very helpful. The bar,restaurant and take-away are only open at weekends in the low season. Outside the gate there is a hot baguette machine that is working 24/7. We stayed here for 5 nights late may/early june and highly recommend it.
very pleasant site. Water & waste at each pitch. All pitches hedged. some very large outfits would need to choose the larger spots.easy cycle ride to st Jean de Monts and the sea front/beach. many cycle routes around, large Super U for shopping & fuel. friendly helpful staff. New swimming pool complex with water slides & Space hole chutes for the brave.
We are satisfied to see that you appreciated your stay with us. Your message will probably help other campers to organize their holidays. Kind regards.
Visited in September 2013. weather was poor but the site was excellent. Site within easy cycle ride from main beach in St Jeans and the old town with shops and markets was a short walk away.
