Les Ecureuils

  • We have just returned from this campsite which we booked through Eurocamp as a last minute alternative (our original holiday having been cancelled due to chickenpox!) Our arrival at the campsite was hassle free with both the campsite staff and Eurocamp ready and waiting for us. Our pitch was great - just the right distance from the reception/shop/pools - with the right amount of shade from the tall pine trees. Despite having a caravan with shower room, we did make use of the shower/children's bath facilities and found them to be great (although never used ones in previous campsites, so nothing to compare against).

    Play facilities were small but sufficient for our 4 year old. Being a smaller campsite, our 10 year old revelled in the freedom to come and go from the football/basketball area. Minigolf provided fun too. The pools were lovely - very clean but could be cold (though great once you're in!) The sun terrace is quite small and could be crowded but we always got a sun bed or at least a couple of chairs to begin with. Didn't try out any of the entertainment nights, preferring to kick back with wine, cheese and a good book once the kids in bed. Got takeaway the first night - nothing special - but the fresh bread and croissants gorgeous in the mornings. A very basic shop on site but a good Super U a few minutes drive away. Staff fantastically helpful and very friendly - and very patient with my basic French. A great location - try Plage du Mines a few km away. Plenty to see and do in the surrounding region (Puy du Fou, Chateau de Talmont, Le Chateau des Aventuriers, Zoo des Sables d'Olonne among our favourites) A great holiday - great weather too!
