Great family holiday
About the Owner
I am a retired teacher living in Oxfordshire with my husband,a retired lecturer, now a part time,self employed plumber. We spent many holidays camping in France with our children and we have a great love of the Country. We loved staying on the well equipped,family friendly sites that France has to offer. We first visited the Vendee in 2005 and loved the beaches, interesting towns and villages and were especially impressed with the amenities available at Les Amiaux. In 2006 we bought a 2 bed mobile home on the site and in 2009 we bought the adjacent 3 bed home. We love relaxing in the area around our home and having the opportunity to use all of the family friendly amenities the site has to offer. Now that we are retired we spend as much time as possible at Les Amiaux exploring the Vendee.

Great family holiday
Great place to stay with young kids. We stayed for 2weeks with three kids aged 8, 6 and 11months. This was our second visit to Les Amiaux and we love the campsite - great facilities for kids, the boys were entertained with the kids club which was on most day for 2 hours in the morning and again in the afternoon. The mobile home was clean and very well equipped a travel cot was set up for us on arrival and a high chair was provided by the hosts for €10. Gordon and Maureen were excellent hosts ensuring that we had everything we needed. We look forward to returning again.

A lovely holiday
A lovely clean caravan on a lively site. Lots to do for children, mine are 16 and 12 and had a great time. The caravan is situated in a quiet corner away from the activities so a peaceful haven as well. Having the use of bikes was good it gave my 12 yr old boy some freedom on the site. Will definately visit again in a great location with lots to do and near the beach
Perfect for a family holiday
This is the first time we have hired a caravan abroad with our family (2 adults & 2 children) and we could not have chosen any better. The campsite was perfectly situated to view the area of the Vendee and the facilities on site are better than we ever expected. The children enjoyed the kids pool and flumes, the kids club was excellent and there were many areas they could play.
The campsite is perfectly situated between the beautiful beach towns of Saint Jean de Monte and Notre Damn du Monte with lots of local amenities and a choice of either a massive Super U or Intermarche only 5 minutes down the road.
The caravan was very clean and had all the amenities needed for a self catering holiday including a well stocked kitchen to sun loungers, games, beach toys, bikes & satellite tv. It really was a home from home. The caravan is situated towards the end of a secluded cul-de-sac so you do not get any people driving past.
An added bonus was the Venez Vendee discount on Brittany Ferries which was a perfect way to start and finish the holiday. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment on board and it felt like a mini cruise.
All in all it was a lovely family holiday with excellent facilities, excellent weather, beautiful food, and lots of fun was had by all. We would definitely recommend this caravan and Les Amiaux if you are looking at holidaying in the Vendee.

From the Owner
“Once at Les Amiaux we are guaranteed a restful holiday. Our large sunny plot is hedged to give privacy, but is in the sun for most of the day. There is parking for 1 car. The plot has a grassed area with sun loungers for relaxing and for safe playing as well as a paved area with table and chairs for 6 and a gas barbecue. There is also a gazebo to use if shade is needed. As we use the home for our own family holidays we maintain it in good condition and it is comfortable and well equipped,with many "extras" provided. As we also own the adjacent 2 bed home there is the opportunity to have friends/family to stay and enjoy the holiday with us. As our mobile homes are the only ones in the cul de sac there is a cosmopolitan feel, with visitors from many countries moving onto the other plots.”
