The Pays de la Loire is a beautiful French region with the capital of Nantes, a large city but surprisingly (for its size) quiet. For many, a stay in it is like a visit to a spa - it relaxes and helps to recharge the batteries for the rest of the year. Every year it is visited by thousands of tourists looking for a quiet place to vacation. An extensive accommodation base awaits them, including plenty of campsites.

On the French coast

What attracts tourists to this region? First of all, the beauty and austerity of nature - the enormity of greenery, stretching along the shoreline, the possibility of direct contact with nature and admiring the sea. Those who would like to cut themselves off from the world during their vacation, feel the breeze from the ocean, calm down, will like the facility that provides intimacy and peace, belonging to the Campéole chain, the European leader in camping tourism, with several dozen points in three countries.

Camping Plage Des Tonnelles is located in the Vendée department, on a part of the coast that can easily be called the camping area. Vacationers who chose it as a place of rest can make themselves at the campsite (option to rent a tent), in cottages, they also have pitches at their disposal.

Rest on the shores of the Atlantic

The campsite is liked by lovers of cycling . There are many nice and safe paths around it, thanks to which you can contemplate the nature of the region. In addition, it is easy to reach the nearby towns by bike - another point on the list of arguments for remembering to take your own two wheels.

This is not the end of the opportunities for people who want to spend their holidays actively in France . In the summer season, the campground organizes fitness classes, stretching (exercises that stretch the muscles, recommended, among others, for people working behind a desk), you can also shoot a bow. Willing people can play basketball or volleyball on the pitch. There is also a swimming pool and a petanque field. In addition to the facility, we also find many options for spending time pleasantly - apart from exploring the area by bike, we can choose from, among others, tennis, golf and mini golf or horse riding, not to mention water sports.

The great advantage of the camping is direct access to the beach . After walking along the path leading through the dunes, there is a wide sandy belt in front of the eyes of holidaymakers and a wonderful view of the vastness of the Atlantic Ocean.

Family vacation in the Pays de la Loire

The youngest campsite guests have access to a playground with many attractions, including a bouncy castle (April to September). They can also wade in the shallow part of the pool, under the watchful eye of parents resting on the sun loungers. In summer, a team of animators provides care and entertainment for the little ones. Adults can, for example, take advantage of facial or body treatments - the camping has its own spa. How can there be a more wonderful end to the day than relaxing in a jacuzzi or sauna?


The camping is pet friendly . Many tourists have decided to come here because they can freely walk with their pet along the beach. Not only after the season when it is calmer.

We are visiting Wandea

An important advantage of the campground is its location. It is not only about the ease of reaching the seashore, but also the relatively short distance from the main attractions of the region. For example, the Puy du Fou (Beech Hill) theme park can be reached in less than two hours. While in the Vendee, it is worth taking the opportunity to visit it to learn about the most important historical events for the French. It is the second largest amusement park in France after Disneyland.

Approximately 55 km (driving south) is the Zoo des Sables d'Olonne , not very large - compared to competing facilities - but praised by many visitors for its approach to animal welfare.

A word of attention should also be given to the closer attractions. The campground is a great base for exploring the islands of Noirmoutier and Ile d'Yeu. In addition, it is approximately 23 km from Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, a nice tourist destination.
