Activities for all ages and all tastes in Vendée!
The closest leisure park to our campsite is called LE GRAND DÉFI: it is a 5-minute drive from la Guyonnière in St Julien des Landes. It's an ideal destination for restless adventurers, because here you can climb trees, play paintball or even lasertag. A truly original way to discover the Jaunay lake and its valley.
Only an hour away by car you arrive at one of the most famous parks of France, and certainly the most exciting of the whole Vendee: LE PUY DU FOU. This park has been awarded World's Best Theme Park several times, due to the realistic, impressive and unique attractions. At Puy du Fou you get a chance to travel back in time and experience history up close, especially of the Vendee, through breath-taking and thrilling shows. For example: Le Secret de la Lance, Les Vikings, Le Signe du Triomphe, Les Mousquetaires de Richelieu, Le Dernier Panache (new in 2016).
Don't miss the VELORAIL in Commequiers, 25 minutes away from the campsite. In a playful way you explore St Gilles Croix de Vie's hinterland with your friends and family, riding the old railways on the special 'rail bikes'.
More into aqua-thrills?! Then let's head off to O'GLISS PARK, 45 minutes from the campsite. This water park opened in June 2016 and has 4 different 'worlds': Ludo'Park for the kids, Sunset Playa to relax enjoying the palms' shadow, Exploral'O with its 400m long wild rivers, and Délir'Space with 12 (crazy) water slides.

Discover with your kids the CHÂTEAU DES AVENTURIERS! Situated in Avrillé (40 min from the campsite), this riddle and history park will entertain the whole family thanks to its 3 different courses: Le Trésor du Pirate, Des Dinos à la Préhistoire, and Les Secrets du château.
Are you visiting Les Sables d'Olonne? Stop by the ZOO DES SABLES to see more than 55 different species in a very natural place, a few meters from the ocean. This "eco-zoo" is engaged in several conservation projects and protection of threatened species programs.
Fond of animals? Then go for a safari only 1h from the campsite, at PLANETE SAUVAGE! 1 park = 5 "worlds" to discover: the Safari trail of 10km amidst free wild animals, the Cité Marine with the dolphin show, the Chemin de Brousse and its Kirikou's Village, the Sentiers des Incas with the free small monkeys, and the Temple de la Jungle and its suspension bridge.
Another fun little trip, only 10 minutes from the campsite, is the POTAGER EXTRAORDINAIRE. You'll be surprised by this uncommon botanic garden, where you will find around 1500 different types of plants that will awake your senses: you'll be able to taste, touch, smell,...
To know everything about the bees life and the honey-making, go to LA FOLIE DE FINFARINE, 30 minutes from La Guyonnière. An educational family outing to discover and have fun in the same time, thanks to several animations.
