Features & FacilitiesFor a site with 500 pitches, the kids’ play area is relatively small. The nearest shop is outside the municipal campsite, not far from the main gate, with more supermarkets to be found further into Noirmoutier-en-L’Île. There are 5 wash-blocks, with plenty of hot showers, toilets, and stylish washing facilities, though some women, when asked, said they would definitely prefer it if the showers were not ‘mixed’ areas. Jetons (tokens) for washing machines are available from reception, where bike-hire and wi-fi access is also available. BBQs are fine, but campfires are not allowed on site, nor on the beach, though people do light their own beach fires.
ActivitiesThere are bike trails across the island, some of which are cycles-only, criss-crossing the Marais salt marshes. When there’s not enough excitement to be had on the beach, the water chutes, slides, torrents, and geysers at the Océanile Aquatic Park (00 33 2 51 35 91 35) should deliver it. Alternatively, there’s surfing and kite-surfing, sailing, fishing, horse-riding, or kayak and canoe hire to help you discover the labyrinthine Routes du Sel (the salt routes). And there’s a nature reserve that’s great for spotting sea- and marsh-loving birds next to the site.
Food & DrinkThere’s a boulanger who comes to the site each morning at around 8.30am with fresh bread and croissants. Make sure you buy, catch, or collect some seafood, whether it’s covered in scales, shells, or exoskeletons, to eat on site, preferably after an aperitif of Pineau made in the Vendée or the Charente. Among the many restaurants in Noirmoutier-en-I’ÎIe, the ivy-clad Le Grand Four, right next to the castle (00 33 2 51 39 61 97) comes highly recommended for gastronomic thrills (menus from €23). Or try the family-friendly seafood and crêpes selection at Le Transat (00 33 2 51 35 72 27), which has a very friendly atmosphere and offers panoramic views over the port of L’Herbaudière, about 3½ miles (6 km) from La Vendette.
