If you are looking for a family campsite with a long golden sand beach, Camping Jard in La Tranche-sur-Mer is a good choice. Here lies 13 kilometres of sandy beach with the justified nickname: small California.
And with the nature park Marais Poitevin next door and nice French places in the neighbourhood, the Vendée is ready to be discovered by you...
Splashing, playing, eating and exercising Whatever your water fun, at Camping Le Jard, you will find it guaranteed. A paddling pool with a real water slide, an outdoor pool for one of the many sunny days of the Vendée, an indoor pool for the cooler days in the low season, a jacuzzi and of course the sea on that beautiful long sandy beach. For children from the age of 5, the animation team organises treasure hunts, sport competitions and tinkering hours. And of course the ball pit remains a favourite with the little ones! Do you want to work on your body after all those tasty snacks in the restaurant or the takeaway meals? You can do that with fitness, tennis or rent a bike, the Vendée is ideal for this: a flat alternating landscape, quiet roads and as a bonus, (mostly) wonderful weather.
La Venise Verte If you stay so close to the nature park Marais Poitevin (la Venise Verte), you will of course take a boat trip through this pristine swamp area; on your own with a canoe, rowing boat or with a guide. A guide has the advantage that it points to the different dragonflies, birds, fish and sometimes even otters. Moreover, guides know the most beautiful places and tell everything about the origin of the channels dug by people. Because the trees hang over the water you have enough shade to go during the day, but you really want to enjoy nature sounds and avoid the tourists, then you can best go early in the morning or in the evening. And how about a day trip to the port city of La Rochelle? The harbor, the old town around the covered market (Les Halles) or shopping in the shops under the arcades (Les Arcades), in the shade. Be sure to plan a whole day to explore this city at your leisure. A beach holiday plus a beautiful environment? Book Camping Le Jard at La Trance-sur-Mer!
