Campsite Description

Built around the beautiful grounds of a rustic 16th Century manor house, this campsite has an impressive 14 acres of land and an enviable location. Only a short distance away from the pretty Vendée village of Avrillé, and the broad sandy beaches and Atlantic rollers of the nearby coastline, Domaine des Forges is well placed for a relaxing holiday in this unspoilt area. The flat, grassy and spacious pitches are grouped around the traditional stone outbuildings which house the campsite bar and shop. With an impressive indoor pool and the recent addition of waterslides and a space bowl to the outdoor pool, the site is ideal for a high or low season stay for couples or families with young children. The many fashionable seaside resorts of the region, which boast a wide selection of beachside restaurants are close at hand, as is the zoo at Les Sables d’Olonne and the château at Talmont St Hilaire. Away from the bustling towns, the landscape is varied with enchanting marshlands, meadows of sunflowers, and dense pine forests, which are a paradise for nature lovers and bird enthusiasts alike.

Goram Family,

I would say it brilliant for families with young children as it feels safe but I wouldn't recommend it for families who have older children who want more to do as there is nothing in the immediate area for them. They were cleaned regularly through the day. I will say however that the showers were not brilliant. Once the button had been pushed the water only worked for 30 seconds and the spray was very close to the wall...which made showering quite difficult. The indoor and outdoor pool were good quality BUT the outdoor pool was freezing! Also you aren't allowed to wear flipflops etc in the pool area which is fine for hygiene but the floor/ground is painful on your feet...not quite sure why they've used that material! The evening entertainment for children wasn't brilliant.
