Need some inspiration for your next summer holiday? We’re here to help! A stay by the ocean in a lodge tent in the Landes, an idyllic escapade in a cottage with all the comforts of home in the Vendée, or back to your roots in a cosy chalet in Wallonia... here are three unbeatable destinations to get away from it all this summer!
A summer holiday in the Landes? Dive in!
Few holidaymakers can resist the charm of the Landes. With peaceful lakes, and forests and beaches as far as the eye can see, nature is especially generous here. With fresh water on one side and salt water on the other, your Sandaya campsite awaits for a wonderful getaway on the Atlantic coast, where every day is a holiday! Here’s a quick glance at what you can see and do in the Landes.
Spend some time in Hossegor, the iconic seaside resort in the south of the Landes. If you’re not tempted by a family surfing lesson, at least stop by for its vibrant town centre, its wonderfully relaxed lifestyle and its stunning seaside villas. Nearby Capbreton is the perfect place for a romantic stroll, with its 189-metre-long wooden jetty from where you can admire the Landes sunsets. To the north, Biscarrosse offers some great alternatives to the ocean beaches with its two lakes ideal for family fun in the water! The Cazaux-Sanguinet lake is the second-largest lake in France and boasts numerous little beaches to explore on foot, on a bicycle or in a pedal boat!
The ideal campsite for your summer holiday in the Landes: the 4 star Le Col Vert campsite at Vielle-Saint-Girons.

A summer holiday in the Vendée? Head for the island of Noirmoutier!
The Vendée boasts the sunniest seaside resorts on the Atlantic Coast, dotted along the aptly name “Coast of Light”. The dream spot for sun-kissed summer holiday! The estuary of Le Payré in Talmont-Saint-Hilaire, the beach at Les Sables-d’Olonne and the sandy stretches of Saint-Jean-de-Monts are all pretty idyllic, yet the ultimate destination here is no doubt the island of Noirmoutier, where you’ll spend some fabulous summer days. Cross the legendary Passage du Gois and let the magic happen!
Explore Noirmoutier by bicycle, from the dense Barbâtre forest to the south to the gorgeous L’Anse Rouge beach to the north. In between, you’ll encounter the salt farmers tending to their “white gold” and enjoy a stroll through the narrow streets of Noirmoutier-en-l’île. Are you visiting Noirmoutier with the family? Then head to Les Sableaux beach, where lifeguards keep watch in summer. On a romantic trip to Noirmoutier? Venture into La Chaise woods and continue on to the lovely village of Le Vieil.
The ideal campsite for your summer holiday in the Vendée: the 4 star La Grande Côte campsite at La Barre-de-Monts.
You’ll simply love:

A summer holiday in Wallonia? Brace yourself for fresh air and adventure!
Are you dreaming of a rural retreat to recharge your batteries? Come and take a break in Wallonia! With forests, rivers and picturesque villages, the countryside has so much to offer to please hikers... and our campers!
