The Business

Situated approximately 6km from the coast and a 20 minute drive from beautiful sandy beaches, this attractive one star campsite, family home and gite is nestled on the edge of the marais and located in the department of the Vendée. It is ideally located in quiet peaceful countryside but within easy reach of the picturesque island of Noirmoutier and many popular sea side resorts including Saint-Jean-de-Monts, Saint-Gilles- Croix- de-Vie and Les Sables d’Olonne.

With 25 very large, level pitches, all equipped with 6 amp electricity and set in 1.6ha of land this one star campsite offers an exciting opportunity for a couple to successfully manage on their own with the potential to develop the site further if there is a desire to expand the business. Having plenty of space there is the possibility to increase the number of pitches to fifty subject to the usual permissions.  As the pitches are not limited by hedges, the site lends itself to develop “glamping” with safari tents, yurts, etc, mobile homes or chalets.

Campsite

The site has two separate camping fields and an additional play field with boules pitch, hard standing pitch for three motorhomes and barbecue area.

The spacious sanitary block consists of a tiled family bathroom with shower, a further 3 shower cubicles, 3 toilets and 3 wash basins, 2 washing up sinks and 1 clothes washing sink. A token operated washing machine is located in a separate area together with table tennis table, seating area and small library.

The site provides undercover caravan storage in the barn for 5 vans and space for approximately 20 outdoors with our storers returning year on year, some for several weeks at a time.
