On the beach at Fromentine
The campsite in La Barre-de-Monts is located in woodland. The grounds are large and have pine trees which offer plenty of shade. It has an open and friendly ambiance. Just beyond the dunes you will be on the beach at Fromentine. You will be staying right by the sea, so take your swimming costume! There is also a heated swimming pool and a children’s pool and sunbathing area on the campsite, so you can have a wonderful swim in the sun.
Clubs for every age
You will be surrounded mostly by French people at Camping Sandaya La Grande Côte. That’s really cool, especially if you want to practice your French. But your kids will not be bored for a minute, the entertainment is in English as well as French, although language is not that important in a day filled with fun games. There are three clubs, one for each age group. And if you want an active holiday yourself, this is the place for you. Learn archery, take part in a fitness lesson or try windsurfing on Fromentine’s beach!
Swimming and more
You can have an enjoyable swim in the campsite’s heated swimming pool, but if you prefer salt water, head towards the sea. You can have a wonderful swim there, but also go surfing, SUP or try one of the other watersports.
Sweet bread rolls for breakfast
This is the place for good food! The campsite has a bar, a snack bar and a barbecue area. Make sure you have time to cook your own hamburger or bake some vegetables. If you like the idea of a fresh breakfast, order some(sweet) rolls from the bakery service. There is an Intermarché supermarket two and a half kilometres away where you can do all your daily shopping.
Off to the island
Time to get on your bike! There are extensive cycle routes around the campsite. Go with everyone to the island and visit the salt marshes. Salt is still collected here by dozens of salt workers, and you can have a guided tour in the high season. The Passage du Gois is also very interesting, this road disappears under water twice a day. You might find it hard to believe unless you see it with your own eyes! There is a small amusement park for children at Noirmoutier. It has a minigolf course, a miniature train and bumper boats. And of course you can just go to the beach for a day on the island. Visit the fishing port of l’Herbaudière, admire the boats and sit down at a pavement café. Life is good!
