Just back this week after 2 weeks in La Garangeoire. Oscar Wilde ferry to Cherbourg was great and a 5 hour drive with one stop to get to the site. All main road or motorway so no real problem. Kids had tablets and stuff to keep them occupied. This was our second visit and it was probably our best ever family holiday. The weather was great 30c the first week, slightly cooler the second but sun shone every day with one or two late thunderstorms. Stayed with Keycamp and were put in amarantes pitch which is really near the reception and almost right beside friends of ours so our kids all played out on the grass. The staff are really good, friendly and the owner Anne does a walking tour every Wednesday morning. She does a 2 hour nature and history tour which was great. She is very proud of the vendee and you even get into the house at the end. My wife did the wine tasting which was great. Pools are good, not too crowded. Activities are plentiful, our girls did pony trekking, free table tennis and crazy golf, kids play park good. The atmosphere at night in the garden is fantastic, with good entertainment, mix of discos, live bands, magic shows and the fantastic garden madness every Wednesday night with probably every child in the campsite playing all the games. Parents could sit in the garden tables, have a glass or two and watch as their kids safely played in the garden. Restaurant good and not too dear. Take away fine and small shop on-site is fine. Large supermarkets within 10 minutes drive with good value food and wine, with amazing range of fruit and seafood. Local markets good and towns of st Gilles, les sables d'olonne all worth a visit. Golf course 10 mins away at les fontanelles which cost 50 euro for 18 holes which we played. The best bit however was the atmosphere - La Garangeoire is a great place loved by kids and parents and people come back every year. Brilliant.
