Campsite with swimming pool near Jard-sur-Mer

The La Grand’Métairie campsite has a delightful pool area. It includes an indoor heated pool and an outdoor pool. If you get cold easily, you can swim laps in the indoor pool in any weather, even during low season. Or would you rather cool off under the Vendean sun? Relax in the outdoor pool while your children dive and jump with joy with their new friends. Traveling with young children? They can slip down the water slide and play in the wading pool, a safe area reserved for young children. From your sun lounger, you can watch them splash around while you bathe in the sun.

If you prefer swimming in the sea, our 4-star La Grand’Métairie campsite provides free shuttles to the Jard-sur-Mer and Longeville-sur-Mer beaches during the summer. No need to bring your car to explore the most beautiful sand beaches of the Côte de Lumière.

Holidays on the Vendée Coast

From the Ile of Noirmoutier to the Marais Poitevin regional natural park, the Vendean coast is sprinkled with popular resort towns, fishing villages and beautiful swaths of sand that seem to open their arms to the immense Atlantic Ocean. The Côte de Lumière gets it name from its orientation and the level of sun the Vendée enjoys, as well as for the beauty of the coast. Just head to Morpoigne beach or Boisvinet beach in Jard-sur-Mer, a few kilometers from the campsite, to see what me mean. After your walk, don’t forget to check out Georges Clémenceau’s house.

If you like local culture and architecture, take the time to visit the magnificent castles just a few minutes’ drive from the campsite, the Talmont and Aventuries castles in Avrillé in particular. At only a few steps from La Grand’Métairie, go back in time at the Préhisto’site du CAIRN, a cultural and games center that sends you back to prehistory, then get lost in the halls of the Vendée’s automobile museum in Talmont-Saint-Hilaire.

You can also take advantage of your camping holiday in the 85 to explore the famous resort towns of the Vendean coast such as Les Sables-d’Olonne, Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, Saint-Hilaire-de-Riez and Saint-Jean-de-Monts. Looking to travel the sea? Take a boat out and explore the Gulf of Gascogne and the Ile d’Yeu. And of course, don’t miss the unforgettable park Puy du Fou!
