Les Places Dorées is a 5 hectare site with 290 pitches & a backdrop of pine trees, 900m by foot (2k by car) from a great sandy beach with watersports. Facilities on site include a fabulous outdoor water park and a lovely indoor pool. Guests can use the facilities including a tennis court at the campsite L'Abri des Pins which is opposite this one.
This site is well situated, roughly midway between Notre Dame de Monts (4k) and the larger resort of St Jean de Monts (6k) a popular resort with a lovely sandy beach and a long seaside promenade, ideal for leisurely evening strolls. There are daily markets throughout the summer, a seafront casino and a wide choice of tempting restaurants. From here you can visit the Ile de Noirmoutier which is connected to the mainland via a toll bridge and there is also a 3 mile long causeway which is accessible at low tides. The island is best explored by bicycle and has much to offer including an aquarium, bird sanctuaries and vast salt-drying pans. Or take a day trip to the medieval theme park Puy du Fou. Worth the 90 minute drive and a wonderful family adventure with lots of action including lifelike battles, an animated medieval village, falconry show, sound & light evenings by the château at weekends and much, much more.
