Classified as a 4-star camping since 1981, Camping les Dunes provides direct access to the famous long stretch of sandy beaches of Brétignolles sur Mer. Welcoming visitors from April to November, the camping provides well-equipped mobile home rentals fitting four to eight people comfortably, with television sets, sheets, blankets and electric heating. Wi-Fi is also available upon request. For those feeling a bit more adventurous, thirty different pitching spots are available for tents and caravans, with easy access to water and electricity. As for entertainment and the animation programme, the camping has everything in place to make it a memorable stay for guests of all ages and interests. Creative workshops are organised for the smaller ones aged two to 12, along with a weekly show to make their parents
proud. Teenagers can enjoy different team sports from football to basketball and volleyball while making new friends. On top of this, the camping has its own heated indoor and outdoor aquatic park for extra fun for the whole family. From the camping there is the possibility to go on several hikes among the surrounding dunes and marshland, with all the information provided at the reception where the staff can advise you on trails to follow. If you are more of the two-wheeled type, ask for a bike rental and enjoy the beautiful cycling tracks of the Vendée region, among gorgeous landscapes and breathtaking views.
The region is also famous for its cultural sites, such as museums and churches, to dive more deeply into the history of the Vendée. If you come with children, the world-famous theme park Puy du Fou is within an hour and a half away by car for a day trip. With great facilities, access to the beach and ideal location at the heart of the Vendee, the Camping les Dunes awaits your visit! Go to the website for more information, available in French, English, Dutch and German. www.campinglesdunes.fr
And of course, being right next to the beach, one can enjoy many afternoons in the sea or sunbathing, while the sporty ones can try out surfing or kite-surfing – the conditions are ideal for both beginners and more experienced surfers.
